Does the SOFLAM assist stinger missles or just the Javelin?
Just the javelin i believe! Drop a soflam and run away, hide, then pull the view finder out. Spot and mark the chopper, then hopefully at least one person on your team has a javelin. It can be fired from anywhere in the map for an almost guaranteed insta kill to the helo.
Decent Pilots can sometimes shoot the soflam, but with stinger spam and ground targets it's only a matter of time!
I love choppers, but it annoys me that people believe a single stinger should be a match! A co-ordinated squad, fair play... I'll stay on foot!
The soflam, citv and laser painter also help heat seekers fired from air vehicles. It's an almost guaranteed hit, regardless of flares.
