OK, I understand that when the a/c that fighters are based on is sunk, the planes can move within 1 movement point to a safe landing zone:
A fighter based on a defending carrier that is destroyed in combat must try to land. It must land on a different friendly carrier in the same sea zone, move one space to a friendly territory or aircraft carrier, or be destroyed. This movement occurs after all of the attacker’s combats have been resolved and before the attacker’s Noncombat Move phase begins. My
question is WHO
decides where these units land? The owner of the planes? I would think so, but it is not HIS turn, he is merely defending. It's the attackers turn, does the attacker get to move those units?
The rule book is unclear.
