Should be left alone. Strafing locked squads is a tactical decision.

Okay.

 

You see an enemy squadron superior to yours locked by a friendly cruiser's catapult fighter.

 

Would you strafe and then lock your squadron over enemy territory while trading ammo for casualties

Or lock it then and there to conserve ammo at the cost of planes?

Yes it’s a dirty tactic but with good results.

Send your first squadron up against 2 to 3 enemy fighters squadrons, once they all locked on send your second in to strafe the lot of them, even your own. You might get them all but most likely they will have only 1 or 2 planes left per squadron and you will have one full squadron to finish them off.

A noble sacrifice.

 

The silly ones strafe 2 on 1 engagements... With your planes being the two squadrons.
