Why do Fighters stop Fighting?

Is there some stupid reason why fighter airplanes stop attacking you during your strafe?   If you are unaware, (mostly noticeable while playing CV), if you run into a fighter squadron, the fighters engage your planes for about 4-5 seconds.  After those 5 seconds, if you still have planes flying,  they just stop caring and stop firing.   However, they resume shooting you down a few seconds later.  So basically the fighters are giving a chance for you to escape with some losses, but not completely.   But why...?

At times it appears they overshoot due to head-on converging courses, turn around and expend the last of the ammo.
