Does Improved Hull allow a ship of hull 3 to be a capital ship for the purpose of taking fighters? I know flagship does, but the wording on improved hull is a little vague.

My first reaction was "yes of course", but I see where you are possibly finding issue with it: maybe with it saying "at the start of the game place 1 mission token" and then "for the remainder of the game...hull value is considered +1" wording, which someone could interpret as it not starting with the extra hull point for the "gather forces" step?

Then I thought you could compare it to another resource:



It mentions "at the start of the game, after the gather forces step", which places "at the start of the game" to include "Setup". So the hull is added at "start of the game" which includes "gather forces" so voila! you have your 4 hull to meet capital ship requirement...

So I would reckon it is permissible...

But I also see it could be argued! Lol

The pure get-on-and-play-the-game side of me, would say "It adds one 1 extra hull, sure, that's fine!"

Playing the opposing voice:
No, because the bonus hull takes place at the start of the game, not during fleet building which is when you need the 4 hull ship for fighters.

Going to have to agree with Steven on this one for the reason given.
