I was recently playing a "pure" Rebel Alliance deck. I happened to put my Snowspeeder Launch Bay (from the Battle of Hoth set) into play and also got one of my Snowspeeders (from either the Desolation of Hoth set or the Battle of Hoth set) into play. I put the Snowspeeder up to attack.
My opponent put up a Heavy Stormtrooper Squad to fight me. He had a TIE Attack Squadron back in his play area.
I won edge and thus inflicted one damage on his trooper and one damage on the target engaged objective, but lost my Snowspeeder to his trooper.
Afterwards I re-read the text of my hanger bay:
"Reaction: After you strike with a Speeder unit, deal 1 damage to a target enemy Vehicle unit. If the target is a Walker unit, also place 1 focus token on it. (Limit once per phase.)"
I noticed the lack of the words target participating enemy unit. Since participating wasn't mentioned, this let me to believe that the target Vehicle can be targetted outside of combat as well. If this is true, I could damage my opponents TIE Attack Squadron as well, causing it one damage due to the reaction from the Snowspeeder Launch Bay.
Does this make sense? Is it legal? Or can this reaction only apply to units in combat?
Anyone play this card in any tournaments? Do you know the ruling on this?
