Hi there,

Loving the game so far. Quick question: Do aircraft that are firing their cannon get a +2 bonus for all their rolls when adjacent to their targets? If so, Sgt. York is about to have an extremely bad day.
Thanks very much!

Good question. I've never played it as such. Fixed-wing aircraft aren't like helicopters in terms of combat and stacking, though it's not addressed explicitly in 19.11. Not an official ruling here. I'll bring it up next time I correspond with Mark. SJ Benoist may have further revelations about this, too.

Adjacent to me is aproximity thing. With men and vehicles, you are within that 50-100 meters. With a helo, you are farther, but still relatively close (if you fly your helo that close to an enemy!). With aircraft you may fly over the hex, but you'd be moving at speed and altitude that far exceeds what I'd call "proximity" to allow for the bonus.

Just my thoughts.

It's a solid question, but no, you don't get the bonus. I'll put that in the FAQ.
