Ranger from reserves
The guy where i always play A&A against wants to buy a few rangers from reservers. My question is, is this really a spotter with the same abilities as the other spotters? Because the ranger is much stronger in defense ans offense and has close assault and a special ability.
Hope to have an answer asap.
Yes, they rock. They are also expensive at 7 pts per.
Note that they count as a spotter for other unit that require spotting. The range themselves have no other implied abilities from that attribute.
Yeah but my german spotter is also 7 point and he is very weak. Does the ranger also have the chatting on the radio and the cover ability? And if he counts as a spotter can he also move and or attack?
No he doesn’t have the Chatting on the Radio disability and he doesn’t have any extra cover abilities. He can just be used as a spotter for units with abilities like Indirect fire.
And he has a spot range of 8 hexes?
The “spotting range” requirement is usually listed on the attacking unit. You go by whatever it says, barring any other ruling or effect.
