Description

Obs
As chopper pilot/tank commander locking onto friendly units (RMB)
makes the AI gunner automatically fire on your own units
(with the MG type of weapon).

Exp
AI gunner should not fire on friendly (if known as friendly).

Repro:
  1. Load the attached mission in editor
  2. RMB target friendly infantry/vehicles/air units in front of you
  3. Notice the gunner firing on friendlies

Situation:

  1. Your are pilot in an AH64, flying around by protecting your ground troops of vehicles and infantry.
  2. Every time there could be an attack, so you are looking around using the Alt-Key and mouse movement.
  3. Suddenly it happens, it seems that some soldiers are in trouble and you want to take a closer look at them.
  4. You push the right mouse-button for zooming in the direction of the soldiers to see how you can help them.
  5. The right mouse-click will result in a deathly disaster of friendly fire.
  6. Pushing the right mouse-button will acquire a soldier as target for your gunner.
  7. And he will immediately opens fire and kill your own man.

That's only an example and there are more situations.
Yes you could give the command "Cease Fire" before i start,
but that's not useful in this situation.
