It happened three times to me during last mission: when I hit F4 to padlock an enemy, an unidentified mate said "Roger" (appearing as well as subtitle on top of my screen). Seemingly undocumented (*), is this a new feature of 4.11 (can't recall ever happened in previous version)? Does it mean some mate nearby cooperates, aiming at same E/A I padlocked? Or I've too much imagination?
(*)P.S.: I should have checked better. Here follows an excerpt from latest 4.11 Guide:
If AI planes in player’s own flight have not noticed the enemy planes, player has possibility to
“point out” the enemy presence to the friendly AI planes by padlocking enemy plane so that it
is visible at roughly center of the screen (15 deg. cone). This works even if the padlock is not
enabled. Also the commands attack all/bombers/fighters has the same function built in as the
padlock key. So issuing “attack fighters” command to your wingman would fail if your wingman
has not seen the enemy and you give the command while you don’t see the enemy. Giving the
command when you see the enemy at the center of your screen (in cockpit) gives your
wingman the direction of the enemy and wingman can attack it. This prevents abusing the
attack commands like a radar.
So only replay from AI ("Roger") wasn't mentioned in Guide.
