During escort missions, those allied tanks/carriers take a long time to complete a move.

ARG!

Press Space after each vehicle starts to move and it will zoom to close to it's end point, effectively speeding things up dramatically :)

Pressing Space only speed up the animation, but not the waiting/deciding what to do.

Note: Basically, I moved all my units, then the Allied APCs starts moving one by one.
The wait I am referring to occurs after an allied unit moved and there are no enemies around.

The allied units sit and think for about 2+ minutes each before moving, then there's the animation (you can skip that, but it's trivial compared to the "thinking" stage). That's with no detected enemies and a clear path toward an objective. Then one of them turns down a side road, putting it at least a full turn of movement behind the rest of the lance, since it now needs to backtrack to get back on the path to the objective. I've started to walk away and do something else for the 10 minutes it takes for the entire lance to sit and think, then move.

Interesting, I don't think I ever had to wait that long for them to think about what to do. A couple of seconds, maybe 20 in extreme cases, but nothing like you guys see. I am on a high-end PC with the game on a fast SSD though, so that might help.

I've seen it occasionally hang for ten seconds or so when the game gets a bit confused, but as long as they don't drive backwards (which I've seen on occasion :v) it isn't too bad.

The weird bit is that the escort missions seem to require the most time for the AI to think. You run a Gauntlet or Tag Team mission and your allies move and shoot way quicker.

I've had them take so long before I actually thought the game had hard-locked. I tabbed out to check on task manager and when I tabbed back in they finally moved. It was probably a total of 2-3 minutes, though it seems like AGES when you are sitting there waiting for it to do something.
