Couldn't agree more, why would we go back to 1960's or whatever technology this was used in back in the day when we got much more easier and more accurate equipment to fly more routine approaches.

I'd be sweating bullets if I had to fly this approach on the line in HDG Select and V/S, there is just so much more that can go wrong and the fact we never ever practice these approaches only makes the margin for error greater.

It would be all fine and dandy if we were flying once every few days and fresh but on a long 4 sector day waking up at all sorts of hours in the morning with high workload days these approaches are not a benefit to flight crew.
