Default Campaign mission 9 broken at take-off (FIXED)

** Update : mission is now *completable* on current stable (2.5.6.52437) ! **

TLDR: bugged taxi AI + hold on 03L causes unescapable mission fail

(It's the mission where you escort a B-1B)

On current stable (2.5.6.49798 ) AI wingmen don't stop during taxi and crash into you. This can be usually avoided by taxiing fast and taking off without waiting. Unfortunately, this mission actually requires player to hold on 03L. Meaning you get crashed into the back by wingmen (ouch) who, to add insult to injury, push you over the hold line and you get a "mission failed" on top of a pile of broken mirages.

On current beta (2.5.6.50979 ) I think the first wingman does stop behind you but gets rammed by the lead of the following flight (stupid Max, didn't pay attention, probably was thinking about that sexy ATIS voice).

A workaround (or a fix) would be much appreciated. I'd like to hear the rest of the story.

Also, for some reason, I can't change the starting spot like I did to workaround the bugs in the Caucasus campaign. Quite frustrating.

I love those campaigns and their storyline but gosh are they brittle.

Hey! I am hoping ED will fix this taxi behaviour, this mission (and all the others) used to work perfectly well before. I am on holidays for a month and may not be able to find a workaround without flying the mission, though I promise I will try...

Nope nope nope ! Enjoy your vacations, I can wait. But thanks !

I have other campaigns to fly in the Mirage and I'm learning to fly the A10C (and looking forward to playing The Enemy Within once I'm proficient in that plane).

Also, as a French person, I have to say the writing and voice acting in the M2000 campaigns are awesome.
