The FLIR Targeting Ball is a part which allows you to lock and track targets, zoom in and out, and send target coordinates to the GPS Coordinator using the Targeting Pod controls.

The Targeting Ball functions much like the AN/AAQ-28 Targeting Pod, but is both smaller and lighter. However, unlike the Targeting Pod, the FLIR Targeting Ball has a radial mounting point, making it less suited for small strike craft. It will not track moving targets unless Guard Mode is turned on, and it will never track flying targets. The FLIR Targeting Ball does not include radar capabilities.
