 But given a ak-47 (hate to leave bows) and 2 men one a rookie only one day
of boot
camp and a green beret of 20 years.  The Beret would have a higher OCV.  Yet
does that
mean the ak-47 has a harder time hitting the more experienced person?  No.
go where they are pointed they don't think about experience :)

 Now granted I would say that the green beret might have a better chance of
through his training (camo, dodging, blocking, intelligence).  While the
tends to
be cannon fodder.
 I just can't see CV having any factor in missile weapons.
