One thing that I would like to see addressed in BoB and PF is the fixing of those violent, jerky and random breakoffs that flights of fighters do when they come in "spotting" range of enemy planes. It seems to me that at least one eighth or so of the time there is a collision when the planes violently break left or right.

If its my flight I can kinda fix the problem by loosening and/or changing the formation ahead of time, but if Im not leading the flight I am outta luck.

I know a surprise attack may have resulted in that confusion, but with AI the surprise attacks are impossible in FB, and even when the enemy is far away they still jerk violently out of formation and end up crashing into eachother.

I know there are bigger issues that need to be addressed and Oleg and Co has its hands full working on the best game out there, but I thought I might as well bring up the idea...
