I had something that is kind of interesting in the game occur that I think might be of some interest to scenario designers.
I have a Marine ARG LHD ESSEX, LPD ANCHORAGE, and the LSD RUSHMORE in the same group. Each of those three has several MV-22 OSPREY on board. ESSEX has the most. The group was tasked with a CARGO MISSION of landing marines on an island. This all worked perfectly.
On the way back, I noticed that some of the units from the ESSEX landed on the ANCHORAGE, and some from the ANCHORAGE landed on the RUSHMORE. And, in an even stranger event, some landed on the two Arleigh BURKE destroyers that were escorting them. In short, the MV-22s are now spread out all over the group.
It's not a big deal, but it did catch me off guard. Usually, if you have a carrier group, the group only has one carrier, so the returning planes have no other choice but to land on the carrier. But, since these three AVIATION SHIPS could all handle the MV-22 OSPREY, it appears that the helos merely choose to land on whatever ship within the GROUP that can handle them, in whatever order.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Again, it makes no difference to me, but if you were a scenario designer, then this tidbit may be of some importance to you.
Thanks, and Happy New Year!
EDIT: A file has been uploaded. The first group of helos (which took off from the ESSEX) will likely land elsewhere.
