Under strict FB fighter combat:
1.	Once a squadron is engaged in dogfight they can do nothing else;
they attempt to disengage before destroying the enemy, they get a "free"
(unopposed) attack as they disengage.  He could have combat moved away
attack the ships, but would have suffered fighter casualties for fleeing
dogfight, followed by PDS casualties (can now be engaged as not
2.	In base-base contact dogfights, all attacks are now resolved
simultaneously.  If you use the old MT fighter rules for non-contact
attacks, it would alternate the same as ship fire.

Mostly it's a case of discussing how you want to resolve your fighter
combats *before* both sides engage, as different methods can require a
slightly different attack plan to get the most out of your fighters.
