Lock-Guided or Wire-Guided?

I saw a gameplay from Jackfrags where he use the mbt law and fire with it without lock a vehicle or something else.... Are we sure that the MBT-LAW is really a Lock weapon and not a wire guided weapon?

Or maybe it can be fire without a lock like a MK153 SMAW but i find it useless...

PS: i will try to find the gameplay

Fine. So the descrisption is wrong. It says "The MBT-LAW requires that the user maintain weapon lock throughout the flight of the missile" plus some stuff about IGLA and RPG7v2

But now, i have an other question. Which is the weapon that's using Targeting lock? The FGM-172 SRAW?

In the article "The Road to Battlefield 4: Tweaked to the Core", it says that the MBT LAW is a "Fire and Forget smart weapon". So it function like the javelin in BF3 with a lock on target and not like a TOW and is wired-guided style...

Now we need to know if it's an active radar weapon (javelin style) or a passive radar weapon (constant lock)...

PS: they don't speak about Javelin, are we sure that it will be in the game?

EDIT: i find it but i'm not sure of the credibility:

RPG-7V2 - Fires a heavy rocket specialized in doing as much damage as possible around anywhere is impacts. Can also lock-on to laser designated targets. 

FGM-172 SRAW - (AT4) Fires a wire guided anti armour missile that will fly towards the point being aimed at. Can also lock on to laser designated targets 

MBT LAW - (against land vehicles only) A guided homing missile weapon for taking out enemy land vehicles. Achieve and maintain lock-on until the missile reaches its target. 

MK153 SWAM - Fires a rocket specialized in dealing direct damage to enemy vehicles. Its rocket can also lock onto laser designated targets. 


RPG-7: Fires dumb fire rockets

SRAW: Fires wire guided, you have to aim the rocket with the crosshairs

LAW: Similar to the Javelin in BF3, need a lock to fire

SMAW: Similar to RPG-7

FGM-148 JAVELIN - A powerful surface-to-surface missile weapon which after lock-on is acquired will guide itself towards its target. Also has increased effectiveness against laser designated targets. 

FM-92 STINGER - An anti-air missile with a focused targeting system for locking into and guiding the missile towards long range targets. 

SA-18 IGLA - Has a targeting system that covers a bigger area in front of the weapon. Once a lock-on is achieved it needs to be maintained until the missile has reached its target. If the lock-on is lost it can be reacquired and the missile might still reach its target.
