I'm having a problem with a senario that i'm creating. I've setup a Patrol area ASuW Mixed that contains enemy ships and Sub. Now when the patrol planes get to the area they detect the first ship and flying directly to it and circle around it. How can i get them to stay on their random course patroling the area they've been assigned too without flying towards the enemy ships.

A save would be essential to figuring out what the problem is.

I had a similar problem with the scenario "Frozen War, 2014".

My sub assigned to a ASuW patrol reacts the same way as you described.
The only way to make him follow the plotted course is to temp unassign him from the mission.


edit: ok i found it out. Just press I
"Toggle Ignore Plotted Course When Attacking for selected unit(s)"
then the unit will not steer towards the target.

I thought of that too. The problem is that i'm setting up the Soviet as the computer player so they'll need to do this without any human involvment. While testing the Soviet side i did try the 'I' key and it worked for about ten minutes but they eventually went back to flying towards the carrier task force. I've attached the .scen file. Try playing as the soviets and watch what happens when the bears discover the USN taskforce.

Instead of one massive patrol zone with all assets assigned to it try smaller zones with a few assets to each. Consider using ASW patrols and use prosecution zones to keep patrol aircraft on station and not chasing targets.

The circling has to do with the Bears being too high to ID the targets so they keep trying. Will ping the guys to see what we can do about that now.

In the meantime try my suggestion above for better results than what you've got now.

Unable to reproduce issue using Build 642, all aircraft on patrol remained in their patrol courses without heading for the carrier group.

(Very nice scen BTW!)
