The OOB rules for AAE describe fighter escorts and defense.
Jet fighters is another matter altogether, not in AAE
I was talking ONLY about how it was done in that game, while ADDING the part of jet fighters so they have an advantage by a factor of 1 in both cases.
uh yeah but your post actually referenced rocket attacks which do not appear in AAE, verbatim or otherwise, hence my confusion
But fighters defending in the target of a rocket attack, could be given a roll of 2 or less for each plane. That could make sence.
