As the flight leader you can now change the formation to line abreast, VIC, finger four etc.Something I beleive we could do in the original IL-2 in the "mission builder". You can now do in flight. Anyone else pick-up on something new ? very nice add-on by the way.

You could do that from the original IL-2.

In the mission builder, you can't change formations. The AI chooses formations automatically depending on their task.

Yep, been doing that for ages. Order them from line abreast to line astern and they will collide though. In line abreast they will crash into you at the first twitch of sighting the enemy too. Still cool though. Tab+2+8+4 make em spread out.

I`ve always done this. I`ve never had them collide when change from line abreast to astern, or at the first sign of the enemy. So I can`t agree with Feathered_IV on those points. Perhaps it depends on type of aircraft and maybe version 4.04 AI (which I haven`t touched offline for a while since it`s buggy and Oleg doesn`t appear to want to fix it).
