Air sweep is a mission! I imagine its an agressive version of interception where you actively try to shoot down any air unit which is 'defending' an area. Lovely. Confused as to what movement does for an air unit. Number of missions that can be done per turn? Makes sortie seem underpowered.

Hmmm....
I am thoroughly confused by this.
I thought air units were going to work like they did in Civ4 (which is what we have seen in the video footage) and have the ability to attack any tile within their operational range.
How do they also have movement points??

My guess would be, they can rebase only within that range as well, and those movement points allow faster reallocation of air units. (1 move = 1 rebase)

Sortie might be Defensive.... once an air unit intercepts, it might not be able to intercept again until next turn, unless it has Sortie.

Movements could either be 'rebases' or 'attacks'

Or it could be a mistake. Mobility sounds like a promotion for naval units if you ask me. Targeting also seems to go on both air and naval units.

Since when? Land units could get mobility in Civ 4 as well.

Embarkation is a shared promotion and it requires optics. So it's not a regular one before that point. Sorry... no land invasions for you! I wonder how the Greeks did it... ...

I don't think embark is actually a promotion - probably just a status icon for when your unit is in transport form.

A lot of the shared "promotions" are more like status effects from having certain wonders, SPs, or whatever. Just a way to more easily see the effects on units.

No I believe it is confirmed that prior to optics you can promote a unit so that it can embark, basically a "if you want to pay for the privellge, then you can use the coast earlier".

what does movement do for air units? Change the range for how far you can rebase them between cities?
