Funny thing about em..they follow no matter what. Shoot and p/k the lead plane and his #2 follows em into the ground. Your AI wingmen also seem to be more aggressive...anyone else notice this?

When you were hit from above and behind, and your attacker held his fire until he was really close, you knew you were in with someone who had a great deal of experience.-Erich Hartmann"[b]</center>

I noticed this earlier, I set a QMB with me versus 2 Hartmann 109's on ACE settings. Same thing happened for 5 games all on the first head on pass, I got the leader and his mate commited suicide in sympathy.

At first I thought I might have hit the 2nd plane but when I paused the game as the wingman did his death dive, he had no damage whatsoever.

Weird.

Well I`ve been playing Campaign and when a lead is killed I`ve not seen his wingman follow into the earth,,, He just tries to shoot me.

Sometimes things happen different in QMB...

But I`ll keep a watch in case it happens.

In QMB,I couldn't get MY wingman to attack...he would just follow me. Even after specifically telling him to "attack fighters" he wouldn't respond,he'd just stay on my tail...

It seems as if the opponent AI was dumbed down and the wingmen AI tweaked.

Usually the mission campaigns I fly - 109F - result in most of my flight being shot down, with us getting a few kills. After the patch I flew 2 missions, both were about 17 kills to 2 losses.

That's insane.
