The card reads that the ordered artillery unit "... will ignore all terrain die reduction."

Terrain modifiers normally seem to refer to either:

"Reduction" being a loss of the number of dice rolled (such as if the unit fires from a wire hex), or

Terrain protection modifiers" which reduce the number of hits (normally infantry symbols and/or flags).

As artillery will never be in terrain (being off board) the term Reduction would never apply so presumably the "terrain die reduction" to be ignored referred to on the card is actually referring to Terrain protection modifiers.

Is this how everyone is playing this card?

Yes.

The card seems to have been worded in accordance with other C&C games, where terrain reduces the number of die rolled, rather than the type of symbols that cause hits.

Yeah I read it as intended for terrain modifiers the affected units would get when attacked by artillery. It doesn't refer to the dice used for the artillery roll.

Better statement would have been terrain protection...
Sorry for the oversight...

Enjoy!
