I noticed in the Observer attribute dialog that the caption for the range values states (m/10), but the entered ranges are generally in the thousands, like '5000'. Is the designation range really 50km, or is the value wrong, or is the caption wrong?

The database is wrong. The range for the observer should be 5km for a stationary target. The entry should be 500.

Were you looking at the "Vehicle Specs" caption or the caption in the power toolkit? Because, on my v 1.03 database, for the M981 FISTV, the laser range is correct.

Power toolkit.

The FIST-V does show 500. COLT and OH-58D seem to be set to 5,000 and 3,000 for laser ranges.

It's an easy typo to make; I've forgotten to divide by 10 myself more than a few times while working in the toolkit.
