Default Ju88 and A20 ignore reaction to threat settings

I set up a formation of A20s like I always set up B17s. They are supposed to fly straight and bomb their target no matter what (Reaction to threat= no reaction), yet, as soon as I attack, they scatter and drop their bombs. The same is true for the JU88.

As if "Reaction to threat" is ignored.

Try reaction to threat = Passive defence.

It doesn't help. Here's a quick test mission. The A20s will always turn and face the attack no matter what reaction to threat you set.

I found a slight workaround for the A20s when doing something like an escort mission in the P-51.
I set ROE to weapon hold and they hold formation and don't scatter when attacked by German fighters. only problem is they don't fire back so are easy prey but it makes it a challenge as an escort fighter. another problem I found is this stopped them from dropping bombs at a point in the WW2 carpet bombing. So I set weapon free they then attack the target but its only the leader that drops and doesn't release the full bombload just one bomb despite telling them to drop all bombs. So I set an infantry soldier inside the target zone and when he is destroyed I damage the area and set loads of smoke and fire. Quite a nice effect. Once past this waypoint I then set ROE to Hold fire and then the Luftwaffe come swooping in and I have to defend the bombers.

There is always a workaround for everything, but this is a long shot. I'd like to update my campaigns and they NEED to work properly.

Dear team, do you have any news on this one? I imagine it should be a quick fix? Thanks!

As far as I know: for the team to do anything, you'll need to provide a track.


And thanks for integrating the new units to your campaigns!

I provided a quick mission, where the AI demonstrates what I mean in a matter of 20 seconds 10 times out of 10 I really want to release these campaign updates already because they make a big difference.

Just checked after the last update, they still behave like fighters.

I hope this will help in speeding up, getting your updated missions to your campaign player base.

Sunstag, thanks for the video but the problem occurs when they are attacked by fighters. Instead of flying straight they start dogfighting.

See the mission I attached above.

Tomorrow I’ll check if it works if I push the task.
