Vehicular Combat

Vehicle Agility
A vehicle's Agility provides a bonus or penalty to a pilot or driver's attempts to dodge attacks or use certain weaponry while operating the vehicle. This bonus comes in the form of a Attribute step bonus to the pilot or driver's Agility-based skill checks depending on the distance in steps that the vehicle's Agility is from d6. For example, a vehicle with a d8 Agility provides a +1 step bonus, one with a d10 Agility provides a +2 step bonus, one with a d4 Agility induces a -1 step penalty, etc. These bonuses apply to Drive and Pilot checks to dodge attacks, innate defense and ranged attacks made with linked weaponry (unlinked weaponry, such as a turret, is unaffected).

A character with Pilot|Light Spacecraft d8 who has an Agility of d8 and who is flying a starfighter that also has an Agility of d8 would roll d10(bon.)+d8 on a Pilot check to dodge an attack.

This bonus or penalty stacks with any other accrued by traits or by combat circumstances such as action penalties, damage effects and dogfighting range.

Dogfighting Range
When two opposing starfighters are more-or-less within a single square's range of one another, both of them receive a +1 Skill step bonus to all attack rolls.

There is no special action that needs to be done to start a dogfight; as long as the pilot's ship can move the required number of squares to enter into the opponent's square, he can engage in dogfighting. There is also no special action to remain in or leave a dogfight.
