I have decided to create a new mission (this will be my first), and I intend to have bombers with a fighter escort. What I would like some advice on is how do I set a cruising altitude for the bombers and escorts on their flight to the target.
I would like to take the bombers to a minimum altitude of 12000ft and/or a max of 18000. Can I have some advice from this forum please. I apologise now if I have posted in the the wrong thread.
Thanks.

In the QMB you can only choose one altitude and that's where all planes start at unless you choose to give one side or the other an advantage. You really don't get an escort function as such but any fighters on your side will attack enemy fighters but not necessarily protect the bombers. If you meant the FMB (full mission builder) repost on the mission builders forum and you are more likely to an answer, especially if your not a veteran on this forum !
