Moving counters around and going through the rules for the first time.

It says in 13.10 that the weather can affect the Argentine Task Group Detection rolls. Does that mean only when British vessels search for the Argentine Task Groups (surface vessels)? Or is it when the Argentines makes Task Group searches for British vessels?

Could someone please clarify this?

The enhanced/degraded search only applies to the Argentine Task Groups when searching for the British.

As I'm sure your aware the type of emhanced/degraded counter in play is decided by the weather.

So for example, a Foggy day(or worse) would result in Carrier Task Group degradation when searching. Thematically this represents the fact that Argentinian aircraft operating off of the Carrier would be less likely to spot the British task force.

Conversely, if the weather is Fair or better in the same situation the Carrier group would have a better chance of finding the British.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the clarification! Now when I know how it works, I also see it in the text.

Yeah, so far, I'm finding it to be a real bugger when the weather is anything less than grey. Then again, if the weather is too cloudy or stormy then it makes Harrier recovery on those supply interdiction runs more dangerous and almost not worth the interdiction effort.

Bother. Damn choices...
