This applies to all planes with rear gunners, not just Russian planes. The rear gunner AI needs better prioritizing. Planes that are actually attacking need to be the first priority. The rear guns also need a big buff, currently fighters just stay in the rear gunners fire because they will take little damage from the rear gunner. Ground attack also need a survivability boost, it should take cannons or a six or more gun fighter to drop one quickly but even the two gun fighters can take one down with reasonable speed.

it due to this

but I still can get shot down by a tail gunner ( thought it happens more on the RU server as of late)
I have noticed if the enemy bandit is right at your 6 the gunner wont fire you have to angle your AC a little.

I wish there was some easy way to choose a target for TGs... does anyone know if you can do it with target locking? Because sometime I need him to kill the lower hp plane to get one more guy off my tail, but doesn't happen.
