Do you need to do anything for your fighters to intercept enemy aircraft
or does the system do it automatically ?

Many thanks for any help.

P.S - originally posted on Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris but had no reply so thought would try here.

The main thing for your fighters is to set the level of readiness. When you select the unit there is an intercept percentage that you can alter. It goes from 'Dont Intercept' to '>75%' which means that the units will only intercept if they have readiness of 75% or over. On mine I generally keep them at either only intercepting at 75% or at the dont intercept level. If you have them intercepting at 50% or 25% be prepared for some heavy losses. Only use those levels if you are desperate.

Having said that fighters do not automatically intercept, it only means that they will automatically try to intercept. How it is worked out I am not sure, but I presume factors such as AP points left and range come into the equation?

I can add remaining action points (=flying miles left) to Bonners list. I also suspect that morale is a factor too for a unit to launch an intercept mission.
