Quick question: if a module or otherwise gives surrounding units a +1 melee or +1 range bonus, must that unit already have a melee or range attack power? (For example, would a '+1 to range' module give a unit a 1 range attack even if it never had a range attack in the first place?)
Those bonuses enhance existing abilities, they don't create new ones. In your example, the +1 range does nothing for the unit, because that unit can't make ranged attacks.
