Direct Fire works like queen moves in chess. The only difference is that when firing along a diagonal, sectors touching the line of sight on both sides block that line of sight.
If a unit is "engaged" in close combat (enemy unit next to it) can it play firecards in defence against other units or not???
No cards are used in close combat. If a unit is adjacent to an enemy unit, it cannot play defense cards for ranged attacks.
