Playing more of the Rats campaigns and doing intercepts on JU88s and Ju87s. When intercepted the bombers all start doing barrel rolls whilst returning very accurate fire from gunners. I remember this was a problem a few years ago in Blitz but was ironed out. It seems to be back. It kind of ruins the immersion despite it being a very good defensive move. So just now i had a formation of 9 JU88s all Barrel rolling and corkscrewing around each other until inevitably two collided. Plus the gunners don't seem to be impacted by the violent manoeuvring. Is this a previously squashed bug with the AI that has returned in the last two patches?
Having said that it doesn'tnt seem to occur in all missions - I am guessing it may be linked to Waypoint actions in the mission. Not sure. I notice it seems to be on homeward bound leg of bombers route - usually where there is an a reduction in altitude between waypoints - otherwise they are using a normalfly action.. Possibly the AI is trying to maintain a set speed while diving and being under attack?
