Well i was playing a He-111 campaign around Lvov, at least some 15 from target we met a flight of SB-2, and their 2 I-16 escort tries to give our 4 lonely heinkels a visit, I man the rear gunner and fire and pray as they come swarming towards our formation, they fire, we fire back, I manage to kill the second I-16 pilot whose plain tumbles aimlesly to the ground, the other one comes around again!! no he also has lost control, number 3 got him with a lucky burst.

Hell number 3 is trailing smoke and fuel, I hear the flight leader comand: "Number 3 go back to base"

Now the realism ends since number 3 instead of dropping ordenance and going home, relentlessly followed us ignoring direct orders despite rapidly losing altitude and speed and made its bombing run against the soviet airfield at 500m (Some minutes behind us), only to be shot up a little bit more and crash land nearby to it.

I dont know if this is a isolated incident, if would be understandable if the DM would model broken radios (Would be a pretty cool feature at offline multiplay with voice comunication, Bang..zzzt..heck..radio is dead), but in this case it semed to model suicidal stupidity and mutiny.

Anyone else seen similar Ai behaiviour ?.
