Can fighters scramble to defend land territories?

  • I know an air base allows fighters scrambling to defend an adjacent SZ.
    But can fighters also scramble to defend a land territory adjacent to an Air-Base (i.e. can Russian fighter and tact-bomber in Moscow (with an Air-base) scramble to defend Smolenks?

    (from a purely logical point of view I don’t see why they couldn’t, but the manual seems to imply that fighters can only scramble on a sea-zone).

  • Official Q&A

    Scrambling is only allowed in sea zones.

  • Just to provide logical justification: air units can’t scramble to provide air cover for adjacent provinces because those provinces can have their own fighters and/or airbase.  Sea zones cannot, and the purpose of air bases in many cases is to help nearby fleets.
