Airborne Tactics (UFO2000)
- The higher an airbrone unit flies the larger its fire zone (see Firing) will become, becoming much larger than any unit on a lower level. However, this also makes any unit taking advantage of this much easier to be seen by the enemy.
- An airborne unit firing explosive rounds at target a on a lower level than itself is much more likely to strike the ground nearby its target on a miss than a unit firing on the same level as its target. The benefit of nearly every explosive round shot from above doing at least some damage to its target makes explosive rounds a popular choice for airborne units.
