I have a MINOR issue concerning strikes with ESCORTS and re-fueling.

I have provided a NEW scenario that includes numerous strikes which begins just after takeoff.

One of the strikes, Warhorse 1 is tasked with attacking several buildings and is ESCORTED by two fighters. I have arranged it so that the flight has to re-fuel prior to the attack. The flight (and ESCORT) head to the tanker at 4:39 am and re-fuel. After re-fueling, Warhouse 1 and the ESCORTS RTB without ever conducting the attack.

Other strikes which also must re-fuel before their strike mission work fine, supposedly because they DO NOT HAVE AN ESCORT. So, apparently having an ESCORT is somehow messing it up.

Warhorse #1's status was already "poisoned" (set to "RTB - Mission Over") at the time of the save.

I placed all 3 aircraft back at the base and let them takeoff again. This time both Warhorse #1 and the escorts proceeded to refuel, strike and return without issues.

Dimitris,

You are 100 percent correct. As soon as Warhorse #1 is in the sky its status is listed as RTB (Mission Over). I would have never thought to look for that. What could possibly cause that? The plane obviously has lots of fuel because it just took off.

I did notice that even at 40 nm after taking off from the base the plane is still only flying at 3000 feet. I did not set it to fly at that altitude, is that what is killing the mission? I can't see any other reason for it.

I did what you suggested, I deleted the mission and created it again, but I got the same results as before. The plane's status is RTB and it never rises above 3000 feet.

I checked in CMANO, where I ported my test scenario over from, and it works fine there. Warhorse #1 and the two escorts all climb to 36k feet and proceed to the target.

Dimitris,

I deleted the entire mission, and re-started the game and then re-started the scenario. I then assigned the same planes to the same NEWLY-CREATED mission. The two escorts take off as expected, but (as you noted) as soon as Warhorse 1 takes off, its status is RTB (Mission Over).

This saved scenario is 23 seconds BEFORE Warhorse 1 is set to take off, but after the escorts are already in the air.

As I indicated, the scenario worked fine in CMANO, so it may yet be something that was lost in the transfer, hence it could still be a new problem related to CMO.

Thanks again.

Like you, Strike123 (an existing strike), also handles the same loadout and attack without a problem.

I tried Warhouse1 without the Escorts and it still shows "RTB (Mission Over)" and it won't fly over 3000 feet.

I tried moving the targets and repeating with and without the escorts, still the same thing and it won't fly over 3000 feet.

I deleted Warhorse, and created a new plane with the same loadout and target. Same thing.

I deleted Warhorse, and created a whole new plane with same loadout but with a different target. Same thing.

I created a whole new plane (an A-7), with the same loadout, with a different target. Same thing.

I created a F-4 with a different loadout and a different target. Same thing.

I created a F-15E with a different loadout and a different target. Same thing.

I then tried a completely different scenario, and created new planes and new targets. Same thing.

I changed databases and retied everything. Same thing.

I then repeated everything after doing a DEEP REBUILD. Same thing.

All of these missions won't go any higher than 3000 feet, and each takes off with RTB and Mission Over as their status.

BTW.....These attacks in this scenario worked using version 1115.8, before upgrading to the latest version 1115.9

Fixed for the next public release.
