A short question, to affirm my reading of the rules:
When doing a Sweep and taking an Air Strike or a Reprisal as a Special Activity, is it correct that the the SA can take any eligible Space, not just a Space that was targeted by the Sweep?
4.2.2 Air Strike. An Air Strike destroys an exposed Insurgent unit.
It may only accompany Garrison, Sweep, or Assault (3.2.2-.4) and
occur in a Province or EC (not City). It may not occur if US Alliance
is Embargoed (6.3.1).
4.2.3 Reprisal. Reprisal reduces Opposition and displaces Guerril-
las. It may only accompany Garrison, Sweep, or Assault (3.2.2-.4)
and occur in 1 Govt-Controlled space (1.7).
If I read rule 4.1.1 correctly, the answer is yes, as neither SA specifies that it has to occur in a previously selected space for the Sweep:
4.1.1. Accompanying Operations. Some Special Activities specify
that they may only accompany certain types of Operations (3.0).
Certain Special Activities may take place only in the locations of
their Accompanying Operations. If not otherwise specified, Special
Activities may accompany any Operations and take place in any
otherwise valid spaces.
Or does the word 'Accompany' in the SA description mean that these activities are only allowed in Spaces targeted by the Sweep?
