Prey: Flying Cavalry
Special: Ranged Attack, Penetration
Crossbowmen can launch an indirect attack at a range of 3 hexes. A Crossbowmen’s attack ignores it’s targets bonus to defense. In addition, Crossbowmen bypass the bonus defense a Heavy Infantry unit gets against Indirect Combat, and the bonuses that Phalanxes grant one another.
Q: What does the ignoring defense mean?
A: It means that the target only rolls 3d10 to defend itself. It gets no bonuses to this roll. (But still gets penalties, where applicable.)
