      Default Help with Follow/Protect AI and Wingmen

      So quick question, just want to see what others have to say about this issue I keep having (I'm playing un-modded Aldrin Expansion):

      I have a lot of Medium and Heavy fighters fully loaded with guns, drives, computers, etc. (Barracudas, Blastwings, Perseus', etc to name a few) When I assign them to Follow or Protect me and I get into a battle they do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING *or* they are so ridiculously ineffective at fighting it is the same as doing nothing. Obviously I assume on follow they will not engage, but on 'protect me' they still do nothing. In fact they are so stupid I end up hitting them in a dogfight spin and knock out half my shields or they just sit there and get blown to peices regardless of having full hull and 75K of sheilds or more...

      Any suggestions? Do I need to use the 'attack' command or something else, that seems horribly inefficient and would basically take me out of the battle trying to keep giving my wingmen commands- which is a devastating result as I am the only one SHOOTING ANYTHING as of now.

      Thanks in advance!

      Check list...
      Have you equipped em with fighter sw Mk1 and Mk2?
      Have you issued turrets orders for all of them and all of their turrets?

      that for the basic, now for the 'advanced'
      follow will do nothing but follow you.
      protect will have them react against ships which are shooting at you.
      If you want em to actively fight/engage enemies, you'll have to order them to 'attack nearest enemy' or 'attack every enemy' - better alternate those with protect me to have em come back in formation, then issue the 'attack' command again...
