See I haven't been able to experience the interception mechanics everyone is talking about here. I always send in fighters first to cities with air defense, hoping to shoot the planes down but it's a total crapshoot. Maybe 1 or 2 out of 10 air strike missions will my fighters actually engage their fighters, and most of those come up as "your fighter was intercepted and takes X damage" with maybe 1 out of 30 air strikes succeeding in actually damaging the defending fighters. There really ought to be a way to force fighter vs fighter combat because it really sucks when you are losing bombers to their fighters, despite the SWARM of fighters you send in first every single turn that seem to be sleeping on the job. I want my fighters to engage in air superiority missions like they could in Civ3!
