Default Problem attaching flights

I know its been reported before, but is anything being done to correct the issue where when you attach two flights of aircraft together, the number 4 and number 5 always attempt to occupy the same place at the exact same time? Needless to say this doesn't work out well.

What do you mean by "attach"?

Well in the specific mission I am doing, I have 8 Ju-87s and I want them to fly in a group. The game has a maximum of 4 planes in a flight so that would be 1-4. Then I put in the 2nd flight, 5-8. No when I go into the waypoints, for the second flight, 5-8, I set it so it has a target of the first flight 1-4. This way the flights will act as a larger group. But the problem is, the number 5 plane always attempts to occupy the number 4 plane's spot.

This happens with any plane, not just Ju-87s. That's just what I am using now.

Suggest you create your bomber formations from flights of 3 (not 4). It should help. Also you might need to try various distances between the flights, horizontal and vertical.

I agree, finger four is a fighter formation. Bombers werre arranged using packs of 3 units.

For making big formations, I always trace one flight, and then clone it opening the mis file with a text editor.
After cloning I change altitude, and fistances by a factor of 200m or 400m.
It depends on the plane type.

If you want to keep your flights at four planes each, try making the target flight fly an "echelon left" formation. That should keep no. 4 out of no. 5's way. You'll have to do it for every waypoint, be careful not to miss one!

By the way, this man should know a lot about setting up bomber formations:

He appeared on this forum but under different nickname.
