Since I'm new, I guess I can inquire on this.
I was reading over the sequences of the night/day phases and my question revolves around night battles and detection. Since the step which allows a unit to 'react' to enemy TF's for a night engagement happens pretty much before anything else, how does a TF at night go about detecting the presence of an enemy TF so that it may 'react' to it and attack it for a night battle??
I have never seen surface TFs in different hexes react to one another, day or night. They will only engage if in the same hex. CV TFs can and do react to each other during the day phase.
