(Answered) Aerospace Movement
« on: 25 April 2022, 10:20:16 »
I have two questions regarding the Aerospace Movement rules (p. 180):

1. If there are multiple aerospace fighters on both sides, does each player alternate moving them as with ground forces (e.g. Unequal Number of Units p. 32 rule)?

2. Is it mandatory that an aerospace fighter do a flight path each turn?  Or, for example, if a fighter is heavily damaged on turn 2, it can just wait and then take another flight path attack on turn 5?  If this is possible, would the player just declare that it is absent that turn when they would otherwise need to move the fighter?

Yes. Aerospace don't count for ground unit unequal number of unit calculations, and ground units don't count for aerospace unit unequal number of unit calculations. But within aerospace, you alternate and use unequal number of units the same as you would with ground units.  You just do both of those with aerospace forces only.

Yes, it is mandatory.  They must have a flight path and it must cover at least 24" of the play area. (Unless they land, or have the hovering in place option). They are not allowed to be 'absent', a unit not on the play area is destroyed (or retreated, etc, but removed from the game and not coming back).
