At the same time I fired in Passive mode and since I was pointing at the SAMs at Bandar Abbas they went there

I’ve been meaning to try shooting behind you, I tried it on release trying to get them to go after air targets that STT and missiles but that capability seems to have been removed, give it enough time to turn and less range to compensate and it’s surprising what you can do
Don't see why they removed it. You can do that in real life. Also, an F18 hit a B52 radar gunner position with a HARM, so it can go for planes.

Who knows, maybe it really can’t do it in real life, if it can It might be really specific circumstances they don’t want to share. It would be tactically useful, but I’m sure that will be a feature in later generation LD-10, CM-102, CM-400AKG. CM-400AKG would be pretty overkill for anything but AWACS, sure it might be worth it, but the damn thing is basically a MLRS rocket with tri guidance seeker.

There is likely a division in DCS between air and ground based radars which means that ARMs only chase ground emitters (game limitation).

In reality, ARMs are programmed with a 'library' of one or more emitters (the same thing that let's your RWR tell radar types apart). This library determines what the missile can home in on. Loose parameters in the library can lead to incidents like the HARM getting launched at a B52 gun radar.

Maybe, but it did seek out missiles and planes that were STT locking you the couple weeks after release. If you did it right you could even get kills with it as long as they STT the entire TOF

There's a missile IRL which can attack plane by passive radar tracking, but it's not LD-10.
So, we remove this ability from LD-10.
