I've come across a situation where a ship is attacking a huge ship that I need help with. I have a small ship attacking a huge ship. The small ship is closer to the fore section of the huge ship but is wanting to attack the aft section.
The direct line from the centre of the small ship's base to the centre of the aft section's base does NOT cross the blue line, so in that respect it's a legal attack. The issue is with the range. The distance from the small ship's base to the huge ship's aft plastic base is greater than the allowed range but the distance from the small ship's base to the rear portion of the huge ship's cardboard template is within the allowed range.
I know that distance is measured from the plastic base to plastic base BUT the rules for huge ships state that distance is measured from the huge ship's SECTION. What is a section? Is it the base or the cardboard template?
Here is an excerpt from the Huge Ship Rules.
