      Air combat engage over land

      My first 9 detections resulted in combat over water. What do you guys think of an option to engage over land, or some sort of notice if you are over land or not... it isn't always obvious.

      you can always choose to tail the enemy UFO, rather than engage them

      Tailing doesn't actually work at the moment. The plane just hovers in the same spot if you tell it to tail. We should sort that...

      Ah that is why my entire air force stood around like idiots until they went home for refueling

      It isn't just tailing... I frequently had combat on the coast, but I couldn't tell if it was actually over water or over land. Therefore I don't know if I'll have the option to do a recovery mission.

      Yeah - I really like the idea of having different options - engage at all costs, engage over land.

      Not sure if this is already in there (just learning) but being able to choose whether your interceptors try to reach the UFO as fast as possible or try to group together even if they have different speeds.

      If you aren't sure then you could zoom in?
      No idea how accurately the game judges the combat if you are very borderline though.

      If you don't send your craft out at the same time in the same squadron then they won't all engage.

      Will time controls be added to air combat?

      Retreating takes forever.

      Huh...I have no idea. It was brought up, so maybe?
      At the very least, I can't remember any counter-arguments about it.
      Common wisdom proposes that at minimum 60% of the field of engagement should be rubble and/or on fire. As such the munitions budget has been increased 50%. Operations debriefs have shown that 15% is insufficient for current combat requirements.
