Can someone tell me why the Saars won't attack? I have played this in older versions and don't remember having this issue. As built, the scenario has mission ROE set as no opportunity fire on the way to the patrol zone. Because the Syrian boats were driving right up the the Israeli boats and killing them with no response from the Israelis, I changed opportunity fire to yes. But the Israelis still won't fire on the Syrians as they come up to them and destroy the Israeli boats.

If anyone can tell me what's wrong here, either in my settings or the scenario, I am all ears.

It's the setting 'Investigate unknown contacts outside patrol area' for their mission; with this turned off they immediately open fire automatically on the nearby enemy units.

The wording in that option is a bit misleading, we'll discuss internally and come up with something that makes more sense

Couple things on it...

1) In general, the scenario doesn't work as the Syrians. The Israeli boats won't fire until they get to the patrol area. They just sit there and get destroyed. So that setting doesn't really matter if the scenario designer doesn't set it from the beginning.

2) It kind of doesn't make sense for that to be how it works. If I set a unit to take opportunity shots, it would be logical for that to be active until it hits the patrol area. Regardless of "investigating" outside the patrol area.

Thanks for looking at it.

Fixed for next update. A patrol mission with 'investigate contacts outside patrol area' turned off will no longer override the 'engage opportunity targets' doctrine setting.
