Laser designators only work for airplanes with bombs to lock on to. Nothing more then that.

Well no ...

I have several veteran squads on my servers that use these amazingly well ...

What do you need ..

1 x Laser designator
1 x Laster designator bateries

or

1 x Quadrotor

or

 1 x Strider Commander

or

1 x SDV

There's probably others I have left out ...

ANY of the lock on launchers ( Titan ) or ATGM type missles from vehicles  or Laser designated bombs can be used here.

I have 1 player in particular who would have a quadrotors up laser designating players, and then locking on them with DAGR's. He just sits 1km up in the sky and can pretty much hit anywhere on the map.

Other players I've seen use the handheld disgnators to target aircraft and then have a fellow squad mate lock on it with a Titan Compact AT launcher.

You will need to practice this as it's really not easy at all... but once you get it working for your squad, will set you miles apart.

CP out.

Indeed, I can confirm from past experience that the Titan Compact, PCML, and all air-to-ground guided missiles are normally able to lock onto lasers. I think plane guns are also able to target them for range compensation, but I'm not 100% sure.

I'm pretty sure the only thing that has control over target locking is server difficulty settings. I haven't experimented a lot with those, so I don't know how to help you in that regard. It could be a game-wide bug too.
