^ ^ I do not find that to be true. All those weapons are guidable with autoguideAT off (Veteran), and cannot be locked. The commander can select a target with ctrl+right click and then order the gunner to fire, and the target is properly destroyed, but there is no "lock" icon.
ADDIT: Ah okay, this would seem to answer my second question, which means, no harm in installing and seeing for myself the answer to my first question
I'm currently patched to 1.62. I just installed DayZ (and a bunch of other new stuff including the full ACE package) using Armarize.run the patch exe to apply the patch setup automatically (you may be prompted to choose
your exact version in some occasions).
* It will install all beta content to a mod folder "Expansion\Beta",
including the beta exe (that has to be run properly with working directory
set to the main game installation, see below for more information)
* To launch Arma2 Operation Arrowhead beta patch you need to go to the
main game directory and
click on shortcut "Launch Arma2 OA Beta Patch"
Turn off extraneous stuff that DayZ servers might not like (CWR, CBA, ACE, etc., etc.) and then I see that quite a few of the DayZ servers require 1.62.103419.
1. If I patch to this beta patch, will the servers that require 1.62.103419 recognize it as comptatible?
2. Apart from simply backing up my entire Arma 2 folder, is there a simple way to retain the capacity to revert to 1.62 if I find for some reason that I don't like what it is doing?

Hmm. Suddenly BattlEye is kicking me with "Unknown Game Version" again with this beta. Anyone else seeing this?
hmm, was transient, seems to be working again. ignore.
Observed animation mismatch/issue in 1st person when going from kneel position into run/sprint - arms are getting too high up like someone pulls them too fast up into the air. Old "stuck in weapon/binoc switch-loop" animation bug still active. Killed/dead units do still reincarnate as ghosts over their last position. HE rounds + grenades need a bigger fragmentation radius + it would be good and authentic to have a proper blast or shockwave effect for certain ammo types in default Armaverse too.

If you try default missions (SP/MP/editor) in vanilla A2OA and keep an eye on these things you will notice them. Ghosts are flickering for second or two over dead/killed units. Animation loop is noticable if you switch between rifle, AT/AA, handgun, binoculars.... this bug is old and made it somehow back. There is also an animation issue if you try to reload your handgun while walking/running - arms are glitching into each other - visible in 3rd person too. Btw what about increasing default A2OA range of grenade/HE fragmentation let's say 5 meters as lethal deadzone and +15m as casualty-inducing radius (keep in mind fragments can fly ~200m) ?
Since i can't connect to dev-heaven.net,i will post here two issues:
The CRV7-PG missile on the wildcat,flies now fast but its maneuvrability is very low,it turns really slowly,you really need to aim at the target to hit.
Second issue is concerning M256 main gun (but i don't think it's related to CCP changes) : you can just reproduce this by getting on the gunner seat of an ABRAMS and shoot some rounds,or by putting a AI T90/72 face to face with another AI abrams.
You will notice that the main gun misses very often its target,even more ,when you get in the gunner seat and right click a vehicle at around 1000 m or above, the round just hits the ground next to it,and this happens most of the time !
T72/90 main is extremly accurate though at any range ,and doesn't have this problem !
