Hi guys, am I wrong or by judging the video source of the new ATGM screen capture pics it looks to me that the angle of attack when the missile is about to strike the target from the top is rather steep. I wouldn't say that it is perpendicular, but it should be close to 90 degrees.
That's not required. It's not the angle, it's the impact point. Top attack munitions just need to strike the unprotected part of the hull on the top-side. If they hit that target, the shaped charge will pierce through, even at a slope. Also, attempting a 90 degree impact trajectory will severely reduce the range of the missile.
