But you're not resolving whether it hits a large target and if so, how
solidly it hits. You're resolving wether the blast tears up some
bushes, or puts shrapnel into some soldiers near where it hit. The
guidance system won't track on individuals unless they change things
drastically. And since it would never be doctrine to shoot them at
individuals, it won't change. Might set up to track PA suits and you
could resolve that with guidance vs ECM, but then it would be a direct
hit on one person and the rest of the squad would be in little danger
if they are properly dispersed.
