From: The Rock, Canada
I had to update to v1.05 to try the test scenario you provided, but now that I have ran it, I think the mistake was mine.
The missile actually does fly over the terrain, dropping to 60 ft AGL at times.
What I hadn't expected - and please correct me if I am wrong - is that the missile is actually climbing up (and dropping down) these steep fjord walls so easily. It seems to do so instantly.
(I hadn't expected radar detection of the target so easily either, in such conditions, but that may be another issue).
In effect, the missile seems to be hopping vertically over fjord walls like the real one depicted below and then dropping onto the target below (which would of course be in a radar shadow).
I have attached my own version of your test scenario which more closely depicts what I observed in the original scenario, where the fjord wall rises nearly vertically to about 659 ft on one side and down 446 ft on the other to meet the ocean surface.
If this is correct behaviour, is it even possible in the game, then, to hide among the fjords to avoid radar detection and/or missile attack?
