The AI have too many clear sky collisions, epecially when they're on escort duty, since they cavort about and make
helter-skelter turns, where one AI goes one way, one goes another, one makes a little climbing turn, so on, so forth. They many times lose sight of one another, something that is not recommended in real formation flying for obvious reasons. They eventually reform to some extent but then do it again, and often collide when they are in theses strange wild turns. On escort with AI, I refuse to fly close to them!!! I also avoid incessant full throttle operation by not forming up on them. Escorting AI resort to this full throttle when they are trying to get ahead of the escorted bombers/transports, even though it's not necessary. I simply fly smooth lazy circles around the escorted planes with no excessive manuevering and rarely exceed 60 or 70% throttle. Kind of like the way they did it in real life!!
I really don't know where Oleg and crew ever got the idea
that escort fighters should fly in an insane manner. No whining, just hope this gets their ( Maddox Games ) attention and they'll finally change this behavior to a more smooth type of escort flying. And if you guys who agree keep bumping this, who knows, maybe they'll change it.

I thin that the escorts are too close, I gues some bigger altitude that the bombers would be nice /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
And I dunno if this was made, but wasn't a good idea to make the escorts fly higher and in front of the bombers, let's say 1 km ahead, to sweep the way? Maybe split the squadron, 2 behind the bombers and 2 ahead, both 1000m above the bombers
