Dropfleet Commander is an Orbital Combat game in the Dropzone Commander universe in which the vast majority of your games will take place in orbit above a planet's surface.
A typical gaming table is 4'x4' and will show the surface of a planet rather than the more typical 'starfield' style space combat table.
Weapons range is neither absolute nor fixed. It can change based on the power of your ship's scanners, the enemy ship's signature and the enemy's actions (firing several weapons greatly increases a ships signature for example). Stealth is frequently crucial!
