This may be a stupid question but couldn't an enemy ATGM team just get a sniper equipped with a large-caliber anti-material rifle to plink out the Trophy sensors before the rest of the team fired their missile?

If some guy in a moving Coast Guard helo can take out a speeding drug runner's boat by shooting into the engine block it can't be too hard to hit a two-foot area on a rolling tank. Are they adding a mini-Trophy to take out 12.5 mm rounds as well?

Couple things - I'm guessing the Trophy gear is fairly robust. It is strapped to an MBT after all.

And if you start taking sniper fire that is targeting the Trophy sensors, that's a fairly good indication that an AT round might be incoming and it's time to get out of dodge.
