Flag: AirRangeBonus
File(s): rules(md).ini
Values: Floating point values: Any decimal number (clearer range should be added in Template:Values). (Limited to: range in cells)
Default: 0.0
Applicable to: TechnoTypes:

AircraftTypes, BuildingTypes, InfantryTypes and VehicleTypes

This flag defines the additional range added to all of TechnoType's weapons when it is targeting objects in air. In order to do this, the weapon's projectile must have AA=yes set.


When a unit gets ordered to attack an airborne target, it will strive to move into the Range value of its anti-air weapon, and stay there while attacking. Adding AirRangeBonus doesn't affect this behavior, but as it increases the weapon's effective firing range, it actually makes slow moving anti-air units more effective against targets that are able to escape from them (especially if they have OpportunityFire=yes), since they will automatically move in to cover a larger area.
