        Doh, i thought you COULD intercept interptors who are intercepting the
bombers! From reading the FAQ thing at the back of thr book, that seemed
to suggest it. And why not? I means you pay for more command flyers, and

flexibility, and less chance of having 10 figters stuck doing nothing
because the only HQ unit they had was reparing!
