page 16 BKC3 and page 24 BKC2  Weather (optional rule.

The wording in BKC3 is actually better, but there are somel changes that make it worse.
In BKC2 if the weather is extreme at the beginning of the game then aircraft cannot be used for the rest of the game.   This is not mentioned in BKC3.
In BKC3 the visibility range for extreme weather has increased from 10cm (200m) to 25cm (500m).   This is absurd.   I have been out in dense fog and heavy rain and listened to the traffic reports of road closures in the mountains during snow storms where visibility is almost zero.   A visibility range of 200m is generous in those conditions.   500m is like having superman's x-ray vision.
In BKC2 and BKC3 the weather can change.   If poor weather changes to extreme in BKC2 aircraft are grounded for any turns of extreme weather.   If the extreme weather improves then aircraft can resume flying.   In BKC3 all off table support is not available in extreme weather.  This includes artillery which was not the case in BKC2

I was reading through the requested artillery support section of the BKC3 rules.  Down at the bottom of page 48 there is a CV modifier of -2 for extreme weather.  This is a modifier that has no value as the weather rules state that no off-table support can be called.
