Exclamation [NO BUG]TOR SAM missile self-destruts at specific angles between 30° and 85°...

after approx. 550 meters of flight, missile self destructs when launched at a target between something like 30° (or more) and 85° vertical angle. (low flying targets engaging fine).
-Multiplayer affected aswell
-OSA Sam affected aswell

Your target is out of range ( very high ) with target in range all will be fine.

AI will not engage when out of range, but as a player you can engage, with an out of range shot the missile will self destruct.

Then what about this trackfile (attached below)? Indicating "IN RANGE" in bottom left... And later "IN RANGE" disappears, although missile keeps flying towards target... (my high-angle-analysis appears to be correct.)

(Also note that the missile won't be out of range if the target aircraft, a player, is starting a rapid descent... yes, that regularly happens in DCS PvP multiplayer, when players are totally surprised that a Tor below them just went active. )

Another example, displays "in range", all first 4 missiles miss.

Slant range isn't calculated properly most likely. You fire the missiles at a target 12km up so that's outside of the engagement bubble.

Try using tacview, there you can see the "bubble" of the SAM site.

definitely not if the target aircraft even is descending... and here you have your 17 sec. tacview-bubble, as you still don't believe it... enjoy! https://streamable.com/3rj702

That's radar coverage, not engagement.
