How does 14.9d come about with 5.7e statement. Air transport: combat unit must be released reserve to move before/ after a mission in exploit/reaction phase.

Can reserve units be released and air hop with 1/2 MA or no?

Just brain melt reading 14.9d

Weird phrasing in the rules, between them it's clear that:

1. Units must be released from reserve mode to use air transport in the exploitation or reaction phases.

2. They must already have been oriented toward Move mode under the reserve counter as they cannot change to Move mode if in Combat mode.

3. If they are released reserve, they can do their 1/2 MA in exploitation or 1/4 MA in reaction phase.

I suspect the weird wording is to cover the case where a Move mode unit is in an airbase hex and moved by air during the exploitation or reaction phase. Such a unit would not have the ability to move either before or after air transport. And that's probably the reason for that weird phrasing in 14.9d.

Your explanation is much more digestible. Thank you.I will play it as such. Reserves choosing move mode can use air as they are simply units in move mode once released.
