"Guard area" or "Combat Air Patrol" feature

Registered by Renegade on 2011-06-02

Make it so that if you put an aircraft (padaircraft, i.e. fighter=yes and with/without AAcombat) in guard mode at a point it will circle it and attack enemies until it is out of ammunition, at which time it will go home, reload to full then fly back out and guard the area like it was before it ran out of ammo.
