Hi

Hi Bert,
No it's not because only the unit is activated by the use of a Command Card at Tiffin, never a Leader. So if the Leader has not been activated he cannot control the fire in any way.

Hi
Another question :
Assume a Unit with an attached Leader is activated by another Leader. Can the unit receive the Controlling Fire bonus of his attached Leader ?

Hi Bertrand,
No, a Leader’s bonus is only added when he is personally controlling and directing the fire.
So the unit would have to be activated by the attached leader to gain his bonus.

Can one leader activate another? Also, if a level 1 leader actives a unit, can he direct fire as well? He only has one command action and didn't he use that to activate the unit? I'm asking, because I've recently viewed some videos of games in which the player activated a unit and then applied the extra commander's die while firing, even though it was a level 1 leader.

No. One Leader cannot Activate another.

Activating a unit to fire includes directing its fire so even a Level 1 Leader can add a dice to the firing pool. Think of it as him using his 1CI by ordering the unit to fire on a specific target.

And no a Leader cannot activate another Leader.

If a Leader is with a Unit that he Activates he directs their fire and adds his CIs for free.

If he's not with the Unit, directing their fire and adding his CIs costs him an additional CI (one to Activate the Unit, another to direct their fire).
