Loiter at cruise speed
Posted by Grumble on 26 July 2013 - 10:41 AM
Aircrafts loitering at med or high altitude change indicated speed to cruise speed after
  • saving then loading the game
  • or cancelling an attack order. E.g. when the a/c prompts to launch weapons but the player cancels it.
  • (there are probably other situations when this happens, these two are the most apparent)
The a/c holds position and Throttle remains at "Loiter" but the Kts number changes to the a/c's med altitude cruise speed.

Test scenario, load savegame 1
Group ACA loiters high, speed 405kts,
  • order it to loiter at med (or high), ACA indicated speed changes to 300kts, save and then load the game, ACA speed is 405kts again
  • order it to loiter at low, save and then load the game, ACA speed stays at 300kts
load savegame 2
  • ACA is intercepting ZYA on high altitude and will prompt to launch AAMs in a few seconds, cancel the launch, cancel the "Return home" prompt, ACA starts to loiter but speed is 405kts
  • Change ACA altitude to low before launch, after cancelling ACA loiters at 300kts speed
