How can I tell what group is who? Here is the situation... I and my flight of my wingman and 2 other groups were jumped by some zeroes. I had and escort and I don't know which group they were or if I can actually command them. All four of my Corsairs dumped ordinance then got beat up for being under gunned. Only sometimes does it say squadron as an option and I assume that is a group command not refering to a different group.

If you are in an offline campaign, make sure you choose the highest rank. If in an online coop, make sure you choose the first ac in the flight. You should always be able to command then.

Quazi is right. Number 1 in a sguadron can command everyone in the squadron.

Here are other situations:
# 2 or # 4 in a flight commands no one. these are:
1st flight #2 or 4
2nd flight #6 or 8
3rd flight #10 or 12
4th flight #14 or 16

Numbers 1, 5, 9, and 13 command all four aircraft in their flights.

Numbers 3, 7, 11 and 15 command only their wingmen (#4, 8, 12 and 16 respectively)
