In some situations with little time, like an enemy tank getting into view,
you want to tell your AI to attack it immediately.

In the latest beta it appears to be always a two step action.

It would be good to add another element in the quick action menu,
that allows you make AI target and engage (attack) in one go.

Added two demo missions to easily test the behavior in practice.

is it possible to converse an option to attack with one click for fast attack ?

2 clicks "Target" and "engage" may be too slow or difficult with multiple targets assigned 
at several units in some situations, particularly against enemies moving.

At the moment with 1.57, I set LMB -> "attack" and quick RMB "Target". (it works fine)
