Default Tacview AGL discrepency

I have recently installed Tacview and while I find the program very useful there appears to be a substancial discrepency between the Tacview AGL weapons release altitude and the aircraft altimeter indicated altitude (pressure set correctly). Any other F5 Jocks having this issue?

Regards.

IIRC, when first released, the F-5 altimeter was found to have excessive lag compared to the values in the Pilot Handbook.

I'm not sure if the issue was ever addressed.

TacView shows Absolute Altitude unaffected by temp or pressure.
