Could it be related to the hooming code?

No. As far as I can tell, it's primarily used for AI "seen" logic.

Wrong, its used in a bunch of places in the code beyond just AI "enemy_seen" logic. The one that's relavent to the homing missile code is in BulletClass::Think.

Whilst we are on the subject, what does the Bullseye Z Offset do on a Vehicle preset? Does it affect the aiming position (ie: applies the offset from the actual targets bullseye position?) or something else?

along the lines of the topic, Can a homing missle lock on vehicles but not infantry?

I always thought the bullseye Z offset was for AI aiming?

Its what homing projectiles aim for, if you have the Z too low the projectile will miss every time and just keep circling under the object (if its airborne) which is amusing.
