I am not sure if this is a bug or just some mess up setting but I was flying a Stuka D-5 with a 1800kg bomb and i told my wingman who also got a 1800kg bomb to rejoin and well for some funny reason the AI droped his load. I was wondering if this is a bug or is it just how the game is cause i find it odd that telling someone to rejoin (form up after take off and they drop there load)

Or this is some kind of emotional AI that just disobey you order after your last rant on him.

I noticed it happens with a lot of the planes; maybe all? Perhaps the AI know that they can't catch up with you unless they lighten their load? So maybe dropping your speed before giving the order may stop it happening?

Also, I think if you ask them to 'tighten formation' instead, it should serve the same purpose as 'rejoin' and they don't seem to be so willing to drop thier ordinance (but once they are right behind you again, maybe ask them to 'loosen formation' to stop them flying into each other). I haven't tested this workaround properly though.
