If you don´t believe it, watch the replay!
I watched it as well. Were we watching the same replay? In the hundred of targets fired at only one or 2 displayed a glitch but they finally got killed. The tanks were all in ditches so you can't expect them to hit every single time. Overall that test showed it works 99% of the time albeit it with the odd miss which is perfectly reasonable.
I can't say I'm surprised someone find that there is no problem, I can't say I would be surprised if after the following and detailed analysis you would still think there is no problem but I will always be curious of the justification
M151 A-2 ITV vs first group of T55 (NTA = no target available = target already destroyed)
Jeep1 98%: Miss ; Hit (likely)
Jeep2 102%: Miss ; Miss (Impossible)
Jeep3 104%: Hit ; Hit (likely)
Jeep4 106%: Hit ; Hit the wrek (likely)
M151 A-2 ITV vs second group of T55
Jeep1 96%: Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; NTA (unlikely)
Jeep2 97%: HIT ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; NTA (likely then unlikely)
Jeep3 100%: Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; NTA ; HIT (Impossiblethen likely )
Jeep4 103%: HIT ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; HIT ; Miss (likely then Impossible then likely then Impossible)
AMX HOT vs third group of T55
AMX1 90% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss (unlikely)
AMX1 93% : HIT ; HIT ; HIT (likely likely likely)
AMX1 96% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; NTA (unlikely)
AMX1 97% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; HIT (unlikely then likely)
VAB Mephisto vs T62
VAB1 85% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; (unlikely)
VAB1 87% : HIT ; Hit the wrek (likely likely)
VAB1 89% : HIT ; Hit the wrek (likely likely)
VAB1 90% : HIT ; Hit the wrek (likely likely)
M901itv vs T62
M901itv1 116% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss (Impossible)
M901itv2 119% : HIT ; HIT ; HIT (likely likely likely)
M901itv3 122% : Miss ; HIT ; Miss ; Miss (Impossible likely Impossible)
M901itv4 125% : Miss ; Miss ; Miss ; Miss (Impossible)
So we have 35 couples shooter/target, 21 likely result 6 unlikely result (under 0.01%) and 8 totaly impossible result.
We have 40% chance to have a result impossible or with a probability under 0.01% I think we are far from the 1% bug you think there is.
I use cover because units in the open tend to run away if shot at with weapons OFF. The first tests made by Tordin Varglund were in the oppen and it was the same. Cover may make the bug happen more offen (hard to demonstrate) but it is not a condition to the bug.
The bug is easy to spot when it happens : the missile move right to the target and fly over. In the case of a real miss you see the missle hitting the ground right in front of the vehicle or passing next to it.
Someone can try the same things with tanks shell and you will see that they hit as supposed (I've seen that doing my chart but enough testing for me today)
One possible explaination to the bug would be that ATGM were initialy designed to hit top armor from time to time as in this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUMxZ34Ptco but the top armor hit feature is bugged.
