Matchplay mode hanging at the Round Over message resolved.

Stability:

Fixed a CTD that sometimes occured when using the Request Help radio call.
A number of memory leak fixes and stability improvements.

Data:

M1A1 armour level corrected.
BLK40 F16 given more chaff and flare.
Some rear aspect missiles arming delay fine-tuned.
Updated AGM119 Penguin missile motor.
Corrected minimum engagement altitude and range of SA16 missile.

PATCH 1.0.12 CHANGELOG

Avionics / Weapons:

Fixed GM radar mode to show moving as well as static targets. GMT mode still only shows moving targets.
GM radar mode now shows all objects but only vehicles/objects stationary are lockable. If a vehicle moves faster than km/hr , it will break lock.
GMT radar mode shows vehicles moving faster than few KM/hr speed threshold. They can be locked as long as they remain moving.
Improved Sea mode target detection ( 0+ speed threshold ).
Fixed Air-to-Ground radar freeze mode so that the cursor can be moved to lock contacts after freezing.

Data:

AGM-88 HARM set so that only one vehicle gets destroyed.

Adjust RWR priority sensitivity on some aircraft (e.g. MiG-29 and Su-27-37 family)
Campaign:

AWACS menu fix: should fix cases where an AWACS is in the air, but from another friendly team and thus can not be accessed. They should be visible now.
Limit EF-18G missions to only ECM and SEAD roles.

Implemented auto-updater check at start-up. Options in Setup are: Always, Weekly, Monthly and Never.
Stability:
Several CTD fixes.

The "Vector to Tanker" call now calls the closest tanker when the assigned one is too far away at the time of request.
Fix SAM units being sometimes fixated on far away flights.
"Vector to Package" now tells the vector to the next flight in the package (e.g. Escort) when player is lead in the first package flight.
Increased lethality of enemy AI.
Better energy management when entering merge of engagement.
Fix MADDOG missiles not being recognized by the locked AI plane.

AVIONICS / WEAPONS

Fix for A2G missiles with large blast radius exploding way up in the air.
Fix for prioritizing best weapon regarding the R60 and R13m (e.g. MiG-21Mbis).
Adjustment on letality of SA7, SA14, SA16, HN-5.
Fix so R27RE and -TE aren't fired at extreme range, losing lock.

DATA

Fixed an issue with Matra-530D missiles not showing on a Mirage 2000.
Fixed an issue where MiG-21-93 had ghost R-13 missile in loadout screen.
Fixed an issue with A-10 center hardpoint not showing both bombs loaded.

Increase of manpads available in the SAM AD units.

COCKPIT

Fixed too large AOA bracket on Head Up Display.
Fixed jumping CCRP release cue in GMT radar mode.
Remark: the cue can still "jump" by a specific amount, as the cue shows a lead on moving vehicles - when they change heading, the cue "jumps".
Fixed position of RWR symbols in 3D cockpit.
Fix RWR contacs being displayed white in 3D cockpit when HSD is the SOI.
Correct HUD/MFD text alignment and position in 3d cockpit.
Adjusted Simple avionics HUD/MFD text position as well.
