RISC Advanced Point Defense System

Special Unit Abilities
The special unit abilities described here are intended for use with the Alpha Strike rule system:
 RISC Advanced Point Defense System (RAMS)
A unit equipped with a RISC advanced point defense system may use this special ability to reduce incoming missile fire against itself as a standard anti-missile system, or it may use the system to reduce the missile damage to any other friendly unit within 2 inches of its position by 1 point.

The use of the RAMS special to defend its own unit or a friendly unit must be made when the missile attack is resolved; a RAMS ability used to defend its own unit cannot be used to defend a friendly unit (and vice versa) in the same turn.
