11.10 Evasive Action
This card may be played during the Defense step.
Evasive Action stops any one Attack targeting the fleet.

What does that mean? Canceling one Salvo Card? Canceling one Torpedo attack from a sub? Canceling an Air raid?

Whats legal and what is not?

We've played that it can cancel one attack of any form. I wasn't able to find anything more specific in the rules so that's how we've played it.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

That's my recollection, although I don't have a copy of the game handy.

What I do: Evasive Action can cancel any gun or torpedo attack, but not an air strike (either land or carrier based). Ships can't outmaneuver aircraft.

But they can be in rain squalls which is why the Japanese still had one fully operational carrier left at Midway after the US strike. Not saying this is how the card works, just pointing out it can happen meeple

I've always looked at it (from canceling an Air Strike) as the ships were not where the pilots thought they were and had to RTB.
