In jets DLC BIS added an engine feature that allows IR missiles to lock only on to targets that are hot.
So in thermal vision your target has to be white and hot to lock on.
They also added parameters if the target you are looking at is against the sky background or against the land/sea background.
I don`t know if RHS uses any of this with the stinger, maybe your problem is that target not hot enough.

But from the video and what I tested there just appears to be some minimum range at what it locks. Teleport yourself further and it should lock.


There are some websites (not sure of their credibility):

They state that minimal locking range for FIM stinger is around 200m , and indeed in Arma if you move about 230-250 from target it will lock.

could you try to articulate what do you think is wrong with Stinger? I noticed that at least few times you were trying to lock below minimal locking range (~ 300 meters as far as I remember) but beside it was fine.
