(Answered) ADA ground to air attacks
« on: 21 October 2023, 20:43:36 »
Quick question to confirm if my interpretation is correct.

TO:AR page 153 gives the rules for artillery flak attacks. These explicitly ignore all modifiers except for a specified subset. Some of the modifiers ignored by not being part of this subset are the NOE flight and angle of attack modifiers that normally apply to a ground-to-air attack (TW page 110). However, Air Defense Arrow munitions (TO:AUE page 165) say that the attacker "may make a ground-to-air attack against any airborne unit" within a certain range. Despite being an artillery munition with type F, these do not seem to follow the TO:AR rules for artillery flak attacks, but rather are processed like a standard ground-to-air attack with some munition-specific rules for range modifiers.

What I wanted to confirm is: since ADA attacks appear to be standard ground-to-air attacks, they take the angle of attack (and NOE flight) modifiers specified on TW page 110 into account.

Is this correct?

We are going to issue some clarifying errata.

TacOps: AU&E, page 165:

At the end of the second paragraph in the ADA rules, insert the following sentence:

Code: [Select]
These rules supersede the Flak Artillery rules found on page 153 of Tactical Operations: Advanced Rules.
