Getting within aa range and arc of the target during an intercept well expose you to aa fire before commencing your own attack. Yes, intercepted orks possibly get to shoot first if you decide to move within 15cm. It will only hit on 6+ though and only really applicable to Tbolts (that go all in) and Doomwings. More dangerous vs Landas

Ok, but where it says that it is different for the defending unit from its allies in the conditions to fire (''at any point'' vs ''only at the end'' like you put it? I would like to know to tell others in the future but i do not see it. It specifies it with ground units that it can be if they pass at any point of their approach move and aircraft at the end, but i find nothing about differences between aircraft formation allies of the defender and defending aircraft formations, only between ground units and aircraft.


See the original FAQ for 4.2.4 here, this allows any enemy aircraft to target interceptors "at the end of their approach move": https://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd ... 15#p446315

My mistake earlier on, here's what I should have said:

Quote:
Any aircraft formation gets to fire its AA at any enemy aircraft formation that ends its approach move within range of that AA (this is from the FAQ above).

Any ground formation that is not broken and has not marched gets to fire its AA at any enemy aircraft formation that moved within ranged of that AA during its approach or disengagement move.


I had thought somewhere Neal had said that the target of an interception gets to fire at those interceptors if they moved within range of its AA during their approach move. I can't find it right now, can anyone else? If that's not the case it does seem like a powerful bump for Ork Fighta-bommers (who shoot all around) based on who we've been playing it in New England. Or maybe not, they're only range 15cm.

Yeah it has certainly been made quite complicated, the rules not all being consolidated together and placed in different sections (aircraft vs flak etc).

Dave in answer to your question I don’t think I have seen it played that defending aircraft work differently to intercepted aircraft when it comes to passing through vs ending move. As far as I know it’s played here that all flying aircraft only fire defensively when the attacker ends their move in the right spot. Whereas landed aircraft use the flak rules so any point in the approach move counts. I can’t rule it out though, I’m not sure if it ever came up.

I think it's boiling down to me mis-reading Neal's response wayback when. I'll read them over one more time, and then update the FAQ if needed.

FWIW Dave (having not played for years), I have a similar recollection to yours from way back.
  1. In the simple case, defending ground units fire on attacking aircraft making a ground attack before the ground attack takes place. These ‘flak attacks’ are made if the enemy a/c have passed within arc and range even if they end up elsewhere.
  2. CAP Attacks work in the same way, the ‘target’ aircraft and any friendly ground units fire on the CAPping a/c before they attack the target. The difference being that the target a/c can only shoot if the enemy a/c end their movement in range.
  3. The more complex situation under discussion occurs where a subsequent ground attack (or interception) takes place and there are a/c on the table from earlier activations. IIRC Neal ruled that for these earlier a/c to fire on the latest arrivals, the enemy a/c had to end their move in arc and range of the ‘defensive’ a/c. Note there are still essentially two parts of the activation; the ‘defensive fire’ from all relevant units takes place before the attackers shoot.
  4. Finally the most complex situation occurs where players opt to ‘CAP a CAP’. Here each CAP is resolved separately considering the relevant defensive and attacking fire, with the surviving a/c taking part in subsequent actions.

There is no capping a cap
