2 quick questions about air-naval battles:
1/ are depleted air units considered 4th rate when attacking naval units in naval-air combat H and J phases ?
So for example a depleted British TAC woul get a +1 unfavorable modifier when attacking an Italian fleet (3rd rate)?
2/ How do you determine rating of mixed air-naval stacks ? by number of factors or by number of fleet equivalent ?
Example: 1 German TAC and 2 Italian fleets (3rd rate)
Naval battle (phase J): 3 German fleet equivalent and 2 Italian, but 1 1st rate factor and 2 3rd rate, so what is the stack's rating ?
2) In this example, First Rate, because you have 3 Fleet equivalent factors from the German TAC and 2 Fleet factors from the two Italian Fleets.
Hope this helps,
