Default Laser Lock on, on AAA

I was wondering, why the A-10 locks on to the AAA guns with it's laser guided missiles? This happened to me earlier today where I (with regret) covered the noob NickO () after he Tk'ed me and stole my MiG twice in Kashan.
Well anyway I was manning AA at the MEC main base becasue the enemy planes were spawnraping, then I heard the lock on tone and I saw the A10 spam laser guides on my tripple A. So I died. From a laser guide. On a cannon.

So I was just wondering if you could get rid of it in any way? Becasue as I see it it is pretty unrealistic.

Just my humble opinion/suggestion almighty devs *bows before devs*

You getting a tone is unrealistic... but you getting tagged by an A10.. completely realistic.

He says he got hit by a laser guided missile. You learn to read. If he is talking about hearing a lock on warning, that isn't realistic. Who cares? But he says that dying from a laser guided missile is unrealistic. That AAA gun looks like it has a motor or something and I hear servos when I move so I imagine that this would be enough heat to gain a lock with.

But laser bombs don't require heat to lock onto something. Just a laser to follow, at the simplest level.

Its a little different in PR. Missiles only lock onto "heat" objects. There's no magic laser attached to the plane that shines onto the surface like in reality. The missile just says "I look for TTLASER (just a type of heat. TT standing for "target track" or something), oh look! That AAA cannon produces TTLASER too! I will seek it in such a way that the deviation from my nose equals zero". Which leaves us with this thread. Oh and in real life, usually you look for a heat source before lasing a target. Of course you don't need to necessarily.
