I see that shuttles can be shot at with ADDs now. Fair enough, but it does introduce some questions.

The first one I can think of is this: are ADDs subject to the modifiers for evasive maneuvers, in that if a shuttle or Stinger that is the target for an offensive-fire ADD shot is evasively maneuvering, does that mean that the ADD hits only on a '1'? (ADD hits on a 1-3; evasive modifier is +2, therefore ADD hits only on a raw '1')

Btw, I like this idea of letting ADDs shoot offensively. It makes them a more effective and useful weapon, while still not letting them be too powerful. Kudos to whoever it was thought of it Smile

I think that yes, ADDs would be subject to any normal (4A4) modifiers, such as evasive maneuvers.

Gotta remember though, seeking shuttles won't be able to use EM and fighters can't fire while under EM, so there's limits on how much EM will help.

Mike W: You have mere hours to get anything to me that you want in RRB6a to cover this, if anything needs covered. (I will probably finish it today and start printing tomorrow after lunch.)

Yeah, sure, (4A4) modifiers apply.
