Mirage 2000C-S5 losing lock at short range

The following video shows the issue https://streamable.com/8zqysd - see how I lose the lock as soon as I look away by a few degrees whether vertically or horizontally

 

It looks like the 2000C S5 can't hold the lock at short range unless you're pointing right at the target, no matter the mode, background or aspect

This makes it impossible to take advantage of the radar gun lead, and it's a big disadvantage in short range SARH duels, since you have to keep flying straight at the target 

 

Anybody else seeing this issue?

I just tested it and swung the nose around on the Mirage 2000C-S5, never lost lock. Could you tell me if you have this issue on other planes too?

@DirectSupport I was literally about to ping you to get your take on it wow :lol2:
The issue does not show in Test drive, it only happens in ARB (not sure about arcade and sim)

Also no, I do not see this issue on other planes, only the 2000CS5, don't have the -5F yet

Just tested in Air RB, no lock lost when moving nose around either. Can you try it again now and see if you have the same issue still?

Here are a couple more ARB examples, I'm not sure if it's linked to acquiring targets with ACM or not yet, but I noticed the antenna vertical gimbal stays fixed when the bug is occurring, so in other words the radar isn't physically tracking the target and stays locked forward like in the ACM acquiring mode.

:dry: Mirage 2000D same problem https://streamable.com/yp4qgm
Got the -5F today and same problem https://streamable.com/6tqwdz
