Default SU-27 vertical scan

Vertical scan is picking up missiles but not the aircraft every time in vertical scan is this normal? This needs to be looked into.

Vertical Scan can't pick up any target without afterburners above 8km. So if target is on idle and launch missile at range ~9-10km there is big chance that your VS lock some missile instead bandit.
BTW i didn't notice any problem with VS. (need check that... who know, maybe...)

Honestly it’s a pretty good defense against the AIM-9X, since flaring them is like playing the lottery

Its not something new but when it happens frequently then there's something seems not right. But look at bright side, we can use it as troll tool for F-14 launching Phoenix. Couple days ago I made a quick mission against Tomcat BVR 50 miles separated from me (I flied Su-27). I shot down Phoenix in vertical scan mode with Archer. No need crazy maneuver and fancy notching just straight level heading to it. You only need sharp eyes and strong nerves lol.
