Re: Stop AAA and SAMs from moving

Hi. The allocated object will be changed if new orders are sent (by brigade etc.). Are you sure that before the campaign started, the AObj of the units were correct? - i.e. that even though they were placed on the airbase, their AObj must be the ID of that airbase. Also - try to make sure there is o...

Re: Stop AAA and SAMs from moving

Best to look at one of the units with Tacedit. On the Ground Page tab for the AAA unit, you will see an Associated Object ID (AObj), Orders drop down and Division no. The orders should be set to "Air Defense" which is the first entry in the list. The AObj should be the VU ID of the objective you wan...

The button is there in the cockpit(s), but there is no code to give the functionality in any version of F4. SP4 will be data-edits only, so will definitely not have IFF. I think it is unlikely that any future version would have it either.

Which campaign? Try switching labels on as a test to see if the units are actually there. Without labels, you should use the SEA A-G mode to search for targets.

Naval strikes can be against sea-borne targets or ports. Check the briefing.
