Rule Edit

To perform an attack, the target (either hull zone of a ship or squadron) must be inside the attacking hull zone’s firing arc. In addition, the defending hull zone must be at attack range.

Example: Front Firing Arcs of a Nebulon-B and CR-90 B aiming at a Victory-class Star Destroyer.

The attacker uses the range side of the range ruler to determine line of sight and the range to the chosen hull zone. Each range band on the ruler depicts which colors of attack dice he can roll. (Long = red dice; Medium = red and blue dice; Close = red, blue, and black dice.)

For example, at long range a ship can roll only its red attack dice. If the attacking hull zone does not have any red dice, then it cannot perform this attack. (Like the CR90 B in the picture.)

When measuring attack range for a ship, ignore any portion of the defender that is outside the attacking hull zone’s firing arc, even if that portion is at a closer range.*
