And what if you fly a LOC approach, GS out? You will fly a VNAV path based on the GS in the FMS.

On a different note, the limitation of the autoland acceptable GS is valid with 10 knots tail- and 20 kts headwind. The apparent glide path decreases or increases quit a bit.

Wind has no affect on the GS.

I believe you are thinking of rate of descent.

Yes I am thinking of rate of descent. That is all the Autopilot has to cope with.

And that is where there are limits set in the angle.

The Angle itself, be it 3 degrees or 333 degrees, for the AP it is just a number.
To keep the aircraft under control is what matters.

Sorry if I expressed myself wrong.
