Ive started a Yak1B campaign and i really like it...but i have a few questions.

1) What throttle or speed does the AI fly at? I currently fly the number 2 plane in the formation and im having trouble keeping in formation cause of speed problems

2) On a few occasions when ive flown in the number 2 spot the number 1 plane has been shot down. The 3 and 4 planes hook onto me and fly in formation behind me. However, I am not able to order them to do things (attack...rtb etc.) even though i am now technically the squadron lead....Is this a glitch?

thanks in advance!

300 KPH is a favourite speed. To find out for sure, you could a) turn on the distance icon and watch what speed you're doing while maintaining a constant distance from another plane in your flight,
or the really easy way
b) turn on the autopilot briefly and see what speed it flies.

Yes, I think so - I posted a thread venting on the very same problem (http://forums.ubi.com/messages/message_view-topic.asp?name=us_il2sturmovik_gd&id=ywqrl) today.
