Title: (Answered) VTOLs (and Airships) and Low-Altitude movement
Post by: Daryk on 15 August 2021, 19:37:19
Total Warfare page 80 explicitly prohibits VTOLs and Airships from entering the High-Altitude map, but the Low-Altitude rules that start on the same page don't mention them at all.  Can they operate at Low-Altitude?

Per VTOL Movement, p. 54, VTOLs cannot enter the Low Altitude map.  This is mentioned as well on p. 80, this time including airships.

Thanks for the quick turn around Xotl!  Page 54 includes the key phrase "in Total Warfare play".  Do you know where the "other" rules are?

Not offhand, no (or even if there are any; not really my area of specialty).  Sorry.

Roger, thanks again for the answer.  I'll dig through TacOps to see if there's something I missed.  I know StratOps has rules about dropping that would technically qualify.
