Hello,

Just a quick question to see if anyone else notices something. It seems the wingmen do not down that many enemy planes. I come back with 90% of the kills every mission which then leads to me having a unrealisticly high amount of career kills while the squadron CO with 4x the amount of sorties has 5% of my kills. Then again I am newer to the game and maybe in the first few missions of a new campaign the wingmen ai is set lower?

Thanks for any input

True. I also fear more my wingmen than the enemy. They just whirl around like headless chickens, no coordination whatsoever. I always let them fight over the last remaining eney AC as I know the risks of a "Friendly" running into me is far to great.

Sorry for the uninformed post but I am new at Il2 1946.

Do the AI have collision avoidance capability?

Supposedly. However, a lot of evidence suggests otherwise.

thanks for the replies. no big deal as it leaves more planes to down for yourself but makes the kill sheet wierd to see the squad CO with 70 sorties and 9 kills and me the flight officer with 3 sorties and 17 kills. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Yep...the AI do ...but they aren't great at it. They actually avoid a human better than they avoid other AI (usually because they both do the same avoidance technique and ram each other anyways). Actually humans are pretty prone to colliding online so while most people regard it as a small calamity that an AI has just rammed another AI...I just laugh and think that its just like playing online with humans...just without the nasty comments in the chat box.

It is very interesting how this could occur. I have not figured out the AI's targeting system as yet. I would guess that if you have a 12 vs 12 they would target each other and get kills.
