Hi. Here's my problem. I posted it in the tech room a while back but no answer. When ever I lead a flight of 4 planes and tell the schwarm or zveno to attack fighters or bombers only number 2 and 3 attack. Number 4 just follows number 3 and will only attack if I request help. Does anyone know what do? Thanks

I would think it would have something to do with the golden rule of wingmen: stay with your lead.

However, since #2 always seems eager to scrap and sometimes takes off on his own to engage targets I didn't even know were there, I don't know why #4 doesn't. When you give an order like that, your wingman should stay with you unless you specifically order him to attack. Otherwise, the second element (#'s 3 & 4) should be the only ones to respond to a "schwarm/sveno attack" order.
