If I put car column to the map and assign friendly AI plane it as target. I expected that plane will protect it. Similary to plane to plane escorting.

NO plane will destroy it. RED PLANE WILL DESTROY RED CAR COLUMN.

It is your expectations that are in error not the software. If you targeted the column you told the aircraft to destroy it.

I don't believe escorting ground vehicles automatically is supported. It certainly isn't in the manual.

true, there is no AI behaviour like "escort ground" - no way.

This only works for friendly air units. Rather than targeting the ground units (I assume you wish to protect them) I suggest creating a CAP pattern over their route with no target specified.

See what you missed is when you target a ground target, the AI behiavour for that waypoint becomes GATTACK instead of NORMFLY. And then it goes off and attacks. Its doing what you told it to do.

You cannot escort ground targets. But you can set up a series of waypoints as a CAP patrol around the target.

The only thing you can do is set up a target waypoint called "protect ground" or something similar, and assing your AI flight to that target. Then it will simply fly a CAP around that target.

But what you were trying to do, having your AI protect a moving convoy, you can't do that.

Obviously they were unreliable reactionary ground elements. Thank goodness Comrade Stalin noticed their treachery and mobilized the Red Falcons to smash them... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
