You know... this is an argument/debate I have been having for a while. Guess I should have just posted it here in the rules discussion section but it goes something like this....
1) Stealths may be ignored for the purpose of target priority. So if stealths are closest and FW next closest, your opponent can legitimately target the stealths with no priority check OR he can choose to ignore them and can shoot the FW with no priority check.
2) If FW are closest and IC is second, you can't shoot the IC as he is not the nearest unit.
3) If stealths are in front of an IC, can you shoot the IC? My stance on this is and always has been no you can't.
My view is just because the stealths can be ignored for target priority doesn't change the fact that they are still the nearest
In my opinion, your opponent can say "stealths are closest, no target priority required" and shoot them. OR he can choose to ignore them and shoot the next closest. But he can't do that to an IC, as it was his choice to ignore the stealths in the first place.
