Explain Like I'm 5 [ELI5] how the rule for 5.1.3.3.2 works with the ranges being reversed.
Given everything else is crystal clear here I assume I am making it hard for myself.

Does 40 on the Point Blank section of the data card for ATGM mean you use the P range on the AP To Hit chart?
- I think I just answered my own question.

Please confirm.

@Jim Day this is a monster superb effort.

ATGMs must acquire their targets. When an ATGM leaves the launching tube it must fly a certain distance in order to be ready to acquire its objective. The nearer the objective, the harder to acquire it. The farther the objective is, the easier for the missile and for the operator to acquire and to mantain it. Thus the reversed ranges: if the objective is close, it is hard to hit it for the missile (thus the E range). If the objective is far, then it is easier to hit, thus the P range.

Just follow the example (gray box) at the top of p7 in the Advanced Game Rules. For ATGMs, the greater the range the better is the rule.
