With this widget enabled, mercuries and screamers (t2 anti air huge towers) should target only some planes with set target command.
By order it should aim :
2.bombers/seabombers, torpedo bombers
4.brawlers aircraft t1+t2, trans t1+t2

Widget tested especially with ba 9 version but it should works with some others mods, like ba 10.24 or with bar. Ba 10.24 and bar mods seem to have a function like this with a special button when you select a mercury or a screamer, but ba 9* don't hav this button in user interface (in may 2020).

(Warning : This widget put mercuries/screamers on hold fire. With this widget enabled, your screamers/mercuries should not fire on small planes, like peepers)

------------------------new version v3 sunday 4 october 2020 ---------------------
if stockpile == 5/5, screamer and/or mercury is (are) on "fire at will". Widget impact screamer/mercury only if projectile stockpile of the screamer/mercury is < 5.
