Fighter consumable aircraft will currently pursue a target until they time out.  This results in situations where they will give chase, and although slower than the planes they are trying to catch, they will follow forever until they time out.  Suggest tethering them at 6-8km from the launching ship, preventing situations where a CV can kite them away, only to allow another CV to attack without penalty.

I have not experienced this with my catapult aircraft in IJN CAs. However, I must admit that Fighters II is very much a "Fire and Forget" consumable for me, so I haven't paid too much attention to my fighters' locations. But they do seem to patrol around my ship.

I think this is about the CV & attack plane fighter consumable which do chase until they time out or run out of ammo which they do seem to burn up pretty fast.

Sounds like everybody needs some Red Tails pilots flying their fighter wing, instead of the other glory hungry pilots, that pointlessly chase the decoy group and leave their escort undefended and exposed.

Ah! That certainly makes more sense. Thanks for clarifying.
