Military / Defense / weapon system
Dutch term or phrase: (doel is) afschietbaar
Default instelling: doel is afschietbaar (binnen overige randvoorwaarden), tenzij expliciet aangegeven wordt, dat een doel NIET afschietbaar is. Dus: Actie Item gebruiken om de afschietbaarheid te onderdrukken.

I was thinking of the term "locked onto target". How does that sound?
