Default NAV Landing mode switches from glide slope to horizontal if below glide slope

Hi!

I have noticed bit strange behavior while using NAV Landing mode.

Normally, when using NAV Landing mode, Viggen switches at 10km distance from airport from horizontal guidance at 500m to glide slope.

At the same time, horizontal flight director needle on the ADI starts to reflect the glide slope as well.

If I descend below glide slope, both HUD and flight director switches back to horizontal guidance at 500 meters (see screenshot) and when I get back to correct glide slope, it changes again correctly to glide slope guidance.

I wonder if this is intended behavior or a bug.

The DCS version is 1.5.7.11762

I *think* the correct behavior is to change to glide slope mode at different distances depending on your current height (so I changed it to this a little while back) BUT I don’t think it should switch back to horizontal guidance once it has entered glideslope mode.

I notice the same behaviour when I land in Landn Nav mode and it didn´t behave like that in previous versions. I think that the TILS landingsystem works worse than ever, it worked much better before the last updates. Before you release updates, fly and evaluate if the reprogramming you make to fix the bugs actually works the way it should, please.
