Hi Guys!
Had PF for a while and never bothered with campaign mode!
Started an A20 Havoc campaign from Port Moresby at lowest rank!
When flying to target area some of my AI flight pile into the lumpy bits(mountains)!
When on auto my A20 did the same!
To avoid this I go manual when nearing the pointy bits!
Is this a bug or PF saying '42 pilots are inexperienced!
Cheers in advance for help!

Pilots were n00bs back then, for sure.

It's normal for the game, wrong, but not a true "bug". Ways around it: make yourself flight leader and lead your guys higher or try and access the .mis file and change the altitudes (not really sure this is possible for a campaign...but should be).

Fly the IJN Betty campaign, no such problems there (no crashing into mountains or suicidal low-level attacks by friendly AI). Not much armor on the plane though!

Thanks for rapid replies!
Kind of thought of the 'make myself leader' way but I like the idea of gaining my stripes properly though I don't s'pose it makes much difference!
Gagging to get my hands on an AEP disc or the IL2 Gold pack as I don't have AEP unless anybody's prepared to rattle off a copy for me, maybe thats pushing it a bit!
Been doing campaigns in IL2 FB for ages, excellent fun!

Thanks again for the info!
Cheers!
