Snowplough behaviour in ATFLIR - bug or correct?

In Chuck's Guide p318, it says that the Snowplough mode goes from VVSLV - by pressing Undesignate twice -  to 0 degrees L and -8 degrees down on activation.

I'm not seeing that, nor do I see it in YT vids.  I know it does that on the Litening Pod, but should it go down 8 degrees in the ATFLIR or is the current behaviour correct?

No one? 

I'll maybe post in the bugs section to check if this is correct behaviour or not.

I posted elsewhere but got no response, so I guess I'll ask if this is a bug or correct behaviour here.

From our manual. 

Quote

VVI Slave. Boxing VVSLV slaves pod LOS to the VVI in the HUD. VVSLV can also be activated by pressing the Undesignate button twice.

Make the double click a quick one on the undesignate switch, you should see VVSLV boxed.

It is working for me, if you still se issue please attach a track replay, or if you have evidence it should be different please DM me 

 

thanks

Thanks @BIGNEWY, but that's not my point.  Slaving to VVI works perfectly OK, it's the snowplough mode I'm talking about, i.e. a double press of undesignate from VVSLV.

In the Litening FLIR, double pressing undesignate from VVSLV goes to snowplough and drops the vertical angle to -8 degrees.  In Chuck's guide on p318, it says that the same behaviour should be seen using the ATFLIR. (See point 5 in attachment). I'm not seeing that.  In the ATFLIR, snowplough mode remains at the same vertical (up/down) angle as the VVI.

I'm wondering which is the correct behaviour, as it is currently in the module, or as described by @Charly_Owl.

Thanks. I don't think this mode is mentioned in ED's manual.
