I have notice for a long time now that the wingman in the single player campagn simply follow their wingleader around. Even if the the wingleader is attacked the wingman does nothing but follow. I always just cut my wingman loose and let him do what he will becuase he does NO good just following me around.

I just finaly had to say something.

Hope for better AI in the future.

Don't want to seem like a 'whiner' but i have to agree with Gantoo. After instructing my wingman to COVER ME, i often end up with wingman following me around and simply ignoring enemy fighters at HIS/MINE back.

there is room for improvement there IMHO. rest of the game is awesome though, no complaints!

Something changed somewhere in one of the patches. My wingman shot many enemies off my six in days gone by, but not now.

I used to be able to do player to target and order my wman to attack and they would...not now. They will only if you padlock the target.

All in all, I think the AI has declined over time instead of improved...they still kill steal, although at least they don't shoot me down anymore trying to steal a kill.

By the way...they are much poorer shots now it seems to me. Seems odd, but I've had many gentle turns evade all fire.

Still good, but I had to see the AI decline.

I don't know... I'm playing a patched version of FB AEP and my wingman generally sticks like glue and fights pretty well to boot. I've had a couple of instances when I was in a train (ie, popping an enemy while his wing was popping me and my wing popping him) and my wingie saved my bacon and got a ace while I got his wing man. I'm not sure how they could get much better.
