Fortify an Airfield

Just before the build airbases phase, you move a supply token from being on an island with an airfield (that you did not build this turn)to UNDER that airfield. The airfield is now considered fortified. An airfield may only be fortified once per turn, and only up to 2 supply tokens can be used to fortify a field at any time.

Effect of fortification:

When attacked, fortified airfields ignore a roll of “2”, (can only be hit on a “1”). The first hit scored against a fortified field removes the fortification, the supply marker is destroyed.

Example: a Fortified airfield is attacked by a bomber, fighter, battleship and cruiser (attack strength 6) the roll is 2,3,1,4,6,2. The first “2” is ignored, the 3rd die rolled is a one, the fortification is destroyed, the last die scores a hit on the air field. With only 1 hit, the airfield remains intact.

Fortifications must also be counted as the last causality of a land battle in order for the airfield to be captured by an invader. This “supply” marker is not captured, it is destroyed.

While I can see fortifications being a useful thing against attacking land units, anything that can bombard (even artillery) would damage the airfield such that air units couldn't operate from there.

Airfields are area targets and fortifications are more of a point defense idea.
