Interesting that the soflam causes the javelin to do more damage. I wonder if this works the same for guided shells for tanks.

From what I have heard yes, And they are fixing a glitch on PC that doesn't make it hit when the tank is moving fast. so it will finally be usable

How exactly is the SOFLAM used? Do I target a tank and someone else just has to happen to have a javelin and shoots at that same tank? Does it have to be someone in my squad?

If you paint the target, anyone with a Javelin or guided missiles can lock onto your target

Yes, it sounds like a locking noise from a missile, but the SOFLAM has a red laser you can see where it's coming from it's the only downfall

I cant confirm since I havent tested but from my experience last night is that a guided missile hit on undamaged tank I would see the hit marker but no disable or kill message. When I had someone using SOFLAM I seemed to get disables more often.
