On a return trip its always a straight line - you have to babysit the unit to make them say, attack from the rear, and retreat back that way too.
Other RTS games you can shift-click and have them circle before attacking, and then do the same with waypoints to have them come back out the back of the base too.
you should be able to set waypoints
the original tiberian sun let you do it, try to look more carefully. Or read/look through the manual if you got one.
