Aircraft vs. "Ready to take off"-Markers Sun, 30 December 2012 15:45
Do I get it right that there is absolutely no difference between an aircraft figure and a "Ready to take off"-Marker present on an airfield hex at game start?

P.9 Air rules

Quote:

A model Airplane that is on the ground (before take-off, or after landing on an Airfield hex) can be targeted like any other unit. It is eliminated if 1 Grenade is rolled against it.
If Ready to Take-off markers are present, they are also all lost at once when a Grenade is rolled, but the attacker will still collect a single Victory medal only.

Ready to Take-off markers may be targeted directly. They are all lost when a Grenade is rolled, and the attacker only collects a single Victory medal, no matter the number of Ready to Take-off markers that were stacked on this hex.


The only difference I note is that when more than one take-off marker is destroyed, you only get credit for one unit not multiple units.
The FAQ will also remind you that a FLAG will also destroy an aircraft or take-off marker when attacked since they can't retreat. And if attacked by another aircraft while on the ground, a FLAG, STAR or GRENADE will do the job. So better to have your planes in the air.

Is this in the Air Pack ? I'm struggling to find it ... It only indicates that aircraft on the ground are destroyed by a Grenade roll .... cheers

Airborne Aircraft always hit on Stars. Aircraft cannot retreat so Flags are hits. Aircraft on the groud are always hit by Grenades. Smile

No, this specific example is not in the Air Pack rules, which is why it's in the FAQ. Cool

This is in the FAQ that is why I stated "The FAQ will also remind you..."

Yes I get that its in the FAQ.

I was just trying to establish where else it was stated that aircraft cant retreat on flags.

Obviously it makes sense, as a ruling, but I hadn't been able to find it anywhere written down, so I guess the FAQ was therefore required if there is no mention of it anywhere.

I was just checking if this was the case.

Presumably it was just a glaring omission at the time ?

Sorry to be such a tease. Embarassed

Yes, you are right the reason it is in the FAQ is because it was not anywhere else specifically detailed.
