In the latest beta, you need to first assign a target by aiming at it - that makes sense.
However to be able to make it engage you need aim the target unit again, especially with
only the one AI selected, to be able to tell him.

When an AI target assigned via the quick command menu, the "engage" option in the quick
action menu should be always visible and selectable - and NOT only when the target is

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