Just curious, if you have a ship that has Swarm Tactics and its killed before it activates to shoot, does a ship at range one still fire according to the pilot skill it would have received from the other ship (the one with Swarm Tactics) or does it revert to its default pilot skill. I assume the first interpretation is correct?
Secondly, am I correct in assuming you can string Swarm Tactics. Example, Pilot Skill 9 gives it to pilot skill 7 and he in turn gives to pilot skill 2 (assuming they are within range 1 of each other). In this case 7 becomes a nine, but does the last ship get a 9 or a 7 as its rating?
