Yes, I have put a percentage of the Sqd on search and the rest on naval attack. It would be pointless to put the rest of the Sqd on rest as the whole reason for the search is to get the planes to attack targets they find within that search arc.
I am thinking that the reason the low-value targets get spotted at all and later attacked is that I have been running bombing missions against the AF at the port hex in question. Maybe I can get by if I don't fly the bombing missions on which I think it likely that a high-value naval target will appear, but I am hoping that there is a more elegant solution to this dilemma.
Therefore the game is working, just not as you would like it.
Others have commented that it would be nice to set Attack Arcs to avoid the attacks you have had, dont know if its possible, might create more dissapointments as TF sneak up from directions you dont cover. Might make things exiting!
I think, in game, you need to split your Nav Search from your Nav Attack and limit them by range, cant think of any other tactics.
