Slightly off topic but wasn’t it determined in an earlier thread that the AIM-7M cannot home on CW at all?

That was discussed in this thread (and was the original topic actually, so not off topic at all because PAL = CW pulse locks), and determined that CW can guide the AIM-7M, based on HB's responses and their documentation (see earlier posts in the thread).

Then why can bandits notch / beam an AIM-7M fired from a Tomcat so easily? Shouldn't it be the most notch resistant thing in the game when you've locked them via PAL? Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought the notch filter was a component of pulse doplar signal processing.

I get that ground clutter should be a problem, but damn, all a bandit has to do is bank hard and the missile drops lock as soon as it near 90 degrees, no matter the range, or even if you're underneath them... The AIM-7 is so bad it's not even worth carrying on the tomcat.... and that's super disappointing, since it really was a pretty effective missile IRL (looking at you ED... fix your missile guidance and MP desync).
Well, CW itself is using the doppler effect too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuous-wave_radar
