F-18 Radar bug, radar locks an invisible target around 90nm away when trying to lock a plane with LHAQ, HACQ or AACQ (target not jamming)

Sometimes, when trying to lock with LHAQ mode, HACQ mode or AACQ mode in the F-18, the radar won't lock to the plane you're looking at/the plane the cursor is placed over, it will instead lock a target which doesn't exist a few degrees to either side, after a few seconds it will unlock him, it doesn't follow any pattern, it happens randomly, sometimes it happens the first time you lock a target, sometimes it happens the 7th, but it can reduce BVR performance.

 

The easiest way to recreate it is to try to lock a target using any of these previously mentioned modes in Hornet's radar, the bug is completely reproducible and I've had it happen a few times already.

 

I'm attaching the track where I reproduce the bug, in this case I'm only able to make it happen with AACQ and LHAQ modes, but in another mission it happened in HACQ too.

 

You can see that in one of the attempts it locks a target around 90nm away, then I zoom in and you can clearly see the enemy degrees away from the lock.

 

As a note I checked the MiG-23 wasn't using chaff, and I've had the same happen with other planes like a Fulcrum.

 

Also I'm attaching the .miz file so you can try and recreate it in the same environment as I did.

Known bug already reported.
Edit: at least the ACM mode issue are, haven't heard of issues with AACQ yet.

even more crazy, was ready to taxi on the growling pvp today. I had set my parameters on the attk rdr in TWS page and just activating NWS for taxi, radar locked a track 99.9nm 90deg off my position hahaha... 

really weird radar behaviour these days...

Devs pls note that range scale also changes to 160. It's really frustrating flying the Hornet like this. 

No issue there. With an STT the range scale would automatically be changed, it just shouldn't be STTing like this...
