Hello,

I lead four A-20 with torpedoes.

When I attack the enemy ship (with torpedo) then no aircraft follow me.

I tried send some commands (attack to my target, attack to ship) but without success.

Answer is "impossible" or (better) attack with bomb only (??).

How to attack with all 4 aircrafts with torpedoes?

Thanks.

Allot of how this works is based on work done by the mission designer. Specifically where the attack waypoint is placed and if a target is specified or not.

Is this a custom mission you built or what?

1. Is the ship the tagged ground target in the mission? (fly the attack on autopilot and see if any execute the attack)

2. What kind of altitude do you initiate the attack from? Torpedo attacks nearly require a low altitude approach - the lower the better.

3. What is your approach direction to the target? AI planes show a preference to attack from the starboard side of the ship (although I have had some success from the port side too).

VW-IceFire, NHawk52:

This is my very simple "mission". I did not specify any target (it mean that with autopilot no target is attacked).

When I created similar mission with B-25 then when I dropped bomb (manually) all aircrafts dropped the bombs too.

I supposed that with torpedo it will be the same.

I will test add "target" to mission.

Thanks.
