This is a sandbox, so disregard the other stuff.
We have 4 incoming ballistic missiles and they are heading for a building.
I have placed a THAAD CEC and a THAAD regular in line to be able to intercept.
The radar (Green Pine) detects them, and they are tracked by the THAADs.
The THAADs refuse to shoot stating that they cannot fire at this time reference a DLZ issue, something about "not being able to calculate", and it "will it again attempt to do so at the next pulse."
If I switch to version 14, then it works.
Can someone try this and see if they experience the same thing, please?
NOTE #1: For anyone testing, make sure that you turn on your radars if you are updating the database. Whenever you update the database, the game turns OFF the radar for some reason.
NOTE #2: There appears to be a VERY SMALL window in the DLZ when the THAAD CEC CAN fire. To me, it appears to be governed by pulses. If you happen to catch the missile in that window (which only lasts a couple of seconds at the most) you might be able to get it to fire. If it doesn't fall within that window, then it won't fire at all. If it does fire, you will likely only get 1 or 2 missiles to fire before the incoming missile is no longer in that window. So, even though 4 incoming missiles are headed your way, you will only get off 2 missiles at the incoming 4 missiles, if you happen to get off any at all.
NOTE #3. Unless the SAM is in the direct path of the incoming missile, it won't fire. If it is off to the side a little bit, there is no chance that it will fire. Apparently, the calculations are too difficult, even though the missile is far away to start off with.
NOTE #4. All of the SAMs will fire at the incoming missiles using version 14. Version 15 is sporadic at best.
Hopefully, this will help you.
