Post subject: Anti-air defence query  Reply with quote   (Liked by:0)  Like this post
Having some problems with the air defence phase - this is the situation.

Bismarck and San Diego are in the same sector.

Allies have 2x helldivers 1x mitchell attacking bismarck

Axis have 2x fw 190 defending against US aircraft

It is the allies air defence first as they lost the initiative

Can San Diego fire on German fighters? And if so can it abort/destroy them before they have a chance to defend against American fighters?

Any help is appreciated

all air defense attacks take place at the same time in terms of splashing, aborting and failing to hit.

your fighter will still be able to make an attack before its aborted.

So in this situation there would be no point for the San Diego to fire on the enemy fighters? As it makes no difference to if they can defend against the US bombers?

Yes and no. Since all planes will be hit at the same time, you go for the target you want to destroy. If San Diego fires on the enemy fighters and splashes them, they won't come back in a later turn to escort bombers.

Often people will use escorting fighters on the fighters, while the ship shoots at bombers, because the ship still hits on a 4.

Yeah.  IN THIS TURN, his fighters will still get the chance to attack your bombers.  But it is absolutely worth using San Diego to shoot at his fighters.  If you destroy one (or both - it can theoretically happen) you get the victory points for destroying that unit plus that is one less air unit and one less defender your opponent can play in later rounds.  Aborting those fighters, however is meaningless.
