Default Drop countermeasures, flares, during ground attack run.

There is Flying in Sam WEZ:
"AI will release chaff and/or flares as a preventative measure when inside a known enemy SAM threat zone or within weapons range of a known enemy aircraft armed with IR-homing missile. Default Setting."

https://wiki.hoggitworld.com/view/DCS_option_flareUsing

I made simple AI CAS mission with Mig-21 attacking convoy with rockets. Close to the convoy there is a Stinger manpad. I tried setting a waypoint action: "Flying in Sam WEZ".

Mig-21 doesn't however put out flares while in the Stingers range during the attack until it has fired. Then it is unfortunately too late.

How can I make the Mig-21 fire flares during the attack run?

I think that is because manpads doesn't have a radar, they are IR guided, so the Mig will never know what hit him. Try to use an Avenger, or any else SAM with radar (Hawk, Patriot, Rapier, etc)

Isn't there an option to use CM's continuously? Use that with a unit in zone or moving zone trigger for the MiG.

To my knowledgethere isn't continous countermeasure option.

In my opinion it is no brainer to use countermeasures during ground attack run in hostile environment. I would have assumed DCS had this option.
