Civilians Attacked - 10/6/2019 7:27:11 AM

G'day Peoples,

I have CoW but I am doing the training missions.

On AAW mission 6 my Tomcats sometimes take out a civilian. The situation is this:
1. Two hostiles are detected.
2. The Tomcats launch missiles at long range
3. The hostiles maneuver in such that when a bogie is between missiles and the hostiles. I've no idea if this is intentional but it has occurred twice in a row.
4. At *about* the time the missile goes active the bogie is marked as a civilian. The civilian is exactly in between the missile and hostiles at this point.
5. The missiles go active. I'm not certain the bogie is marked civilian yet. It is very close.
6. Missile one hits the civilian
7. Missile two continues to one of the hostiles

Give this there are a few questions.
1. I assume that the Tomcat would have fired at the two known hostiles. If the bogie was intended (doctrin says it shouldn't be fired on) to be shot at then I would have thought the Tomcat would have fired 3 missiles. Is this correct?
2. I assume that if the bogie was designated as civilian before the missile went to active guidance that it would have been ignored?
3. What ways do we have to make sure that a missile intended for a hostile doesn't decide to track an intervening civilian, or bogie?

Once the missile is fired, it will not care about friend or foe, but will engage whatever target it "sees" on activation. That is a real-world issue as well, and the only way to avoid it really is to not take the shot until there is no neutrals in the area. Sometimes that is an unacceptable wait, case dependent, though in the modern world it is almost always necessary.
