Can Snipers combat Planes? Can't see anything to stop it but we've House Ruled 'No'.

From Equipment Pack rules: "An ordered Sniper unit may target an enemy Infantry (including vehicles considered as Infantry) or Artillery unit 5 or fewer hexes away." It doesn't say anything about being able to target planes.

It goes on to say that Snipers can't target armor or vehicles treated like armor, though it doesn't specifically mention planes.

If I were GMing it, I'd rule that it can't target planes, based on my first paragraph here.

Snipers were introduced in the Eastern Front expansion. That rule from EP is the same as the one in EF, which was written before planes were introduced. I think this one needs an official ruling.

A: this topic is about something else, why are you hijacking it?
B: You seem to feel entitled to something for every anniversary of DDay?
C: I have been playing New Flight Plan that came out this year (and what this topic is/was about). A 15 year old game still getting this kind of expansions is very rare in the game world. If they had put a sticker on it DDAY 75 years ago would that have satisfied you?
