I was always wandering what the game developers had in mind with this command. I remember once or twice the answer came "Roger. Reassigning fighters. Hold on!" in the campain, where there were other fighter flights. Twice over 2 years of gaming! Anyway, the result was the same: nobody came.

If you want help, key [7] ("Anybody help me!") is the way to go.

It works, but you have to have free fighters max 20km (maybe more) from you. When I say free I mean that these machines roam the skies, and have enough fuel and ammo to come to the rescue. It is almost impossible to achieve this situation in the QMB. The best solution to utilize this kind of help is to create mission in UQMG or FMB and assign a patrol of fighters at enough distance from the fight so they don't come by themselves. If the need arises, request assistance and very soon you'll have cavalry coming.
