Lockon conditions

  1. Missile weapons will only lock on to a targeted ship
  2. The target must be in sensor range (i.e. not unknown)
  3. The target must be within the lockon area of the missile weapon, which for normal launchers is an arc in front of the ship and for turrets is everywhere.

Lockon time

Is a function of:

  1. Launcher outfit
  2. Active enemy ewarfare (not passive)
