Ok.
I don't understand the thread Collis posted, the numbers make little sense. What's impact damage and splash damage? Is it even correct at all? When I hit something with SRAW, it says like 26 or similarly low number on the screen.
"Javelin and MBTLAW are splash only vs. armor. 2x listed value." I stopped reading after this sentence. I don't get a word of this. Couldn't someone write it in understandable way?

Impact damage is what it damage it deals on the point of impact (essentially bullet damage); splash damage is the damage it deals around that. As for the damage coming up as something low, I'm pretty sure (someone please correct me if I'm wrong, because I probably am) that it's the percent of damage you dealt instead of the actual damage you dealt. (It'd get a bit crazy if you got 510 points for giving a tank some surprise anal with an RPG)

The "splash for the Javelin and MBT LAW vs. armor" means that when they do their lock-on thing versus something like a tank, they only deal the splash damage portion (impact damage is ignored), BUT, it deals double the damage value in the chart. So, if you fired an MBT LAW at a tank that locks on beforehand, it wouldn't deal the 105: it'd instead deal 210, which then translates into VEHICLE HIT: 21 (210 = 21% of 1000 tank health).

For the RPG, SMAW and SRAW, it's the opposite: splash damage is ignored by armor and only the impact damage is applied. However, these launchers have angle modifiers: this means that they deal different damage from whatever angle you hit a tank/MAA/FAC (I think) at. Hitting a tank in its frontal armor or turret is gonna deal less damage than the side (~90 from center line deals a light crit), which in turn deals less damage than a shot to the rear (~180 immobilizes).

I think those got discussed somewhere around here: not sure if it's in the same thread, though.

Thanks.
I still don't understand the point of two different damages (what difference does it make? looks like zero, damage is still damage, no?), but ok.
I don't see any explanation for values marked * there. What's the 250 damage for javelin?

The point of having two different damages is that it's fucking explosive ordnance. If you use a dumb-fire launcher against infantry (which you should be if you like PDW's), you're gonna want it to deal splash damage in case you miss, right?

The values marked with an asterisk are used when your target is being designated by a Recon player (PLD, SOFLAM, MAV, SUAV). So, if you rope a recon into laser designating things for you, you'll deal more damage (only in the case of the Javelin: MBT LAW and the SRAW don't get any extra punch), have a faster lock-on time, faster rocket speed and a longer locking range.

Wasn't expecting to be able to go to grad school because of my family. Welp, that's changed, so I have until December 1st to get three recommendation letters and fill out five applications.

The rec letters are going to be a problem.

lol, thanks, but I'm good. I actually managed to find three professors to write them yesterday (of the four I asked). The first I did research with. The second I took a literature course with (I was the only engineer in the class, he has a fairly good idea of how I think). The third I'm taking for a course now in what I want to study in grad school (aerospace control design) and if I stay here at VT for grad school there's a fairly chance I'd end up with him as my adviser.

Good luck! Which is a somewhat moot suggestion coz luck doesn't really play that much of a role, but good luck anyway :).
