Rule[edit | edit source]

While a squadron is at distance 1 of one or more enemy squadrons, it is engaged with all of those enemy squadrons.

  • If line of sight between two squadrons is obstructed, those squadrons are not engaged even if at distance 1 of each other, though they can still attack each other.
  • An engaged squadron cannot move.
  • When a squadron attacks, it must attack an engaged squadron if possible rather than an enemy ship.
  • A squadron does not engage ships or friendly squadrons.
  • A squadron is no longer engaged if the last squadron engaged with it is destroyed.
  • Squadrons do not engage other squadrons while moving even if a portion of the range ruler is at distance 1 of an enemy squadron. Only the starting and final positions matter for engagement.
  • A squadron with the keyword Heavy doesn't prevent engaged squadrons from attacking ships or moving.
  • A squadron with the keyword Grit is not prevented from moving while engaged by only 1 squadron.

The X-wing is at distance 1 of the TIE Fighter Squadron. They are engaged. The X-wing couldn't attack the VSD inspite being in range to its Hull Zones.
