2.   The UG shoots immediately when they declare a charge, shooting as if from maximum range.
1.   For added clarity, Generals may Prompt through Fire to remove any slowing effect caused by Shoot & Charge.

point 2 : is it not  = shooting as if over 1 MU
point 1 : general may prompt to hurry

2 = same thing so I'm ambivalent, unless I've missed something
1 = I think we should stick to the defined terms "Prompt through Fire" being one.  May want to change the terms as RoB suggests above though.

as if max range : you may choose the base you shoot on

Prompt Through Slowing?

Beware : prompt from slowing the dice effect when skirmishing ????

If you're on about Shoot & Charge you shoot immediately you declare the charge from the actual range you are at.

And to follow up your later comment, yes, if you are at over 1 BW you can choose the file you shoot at.

I think I would other keep the current term but define it more widely.

As an aside  ;). the CURRENT glossary entry - and has been for a long time is ...

Quote
Prompting through Fire   Spending of cards to recover movement speed lost from enemy shooting or KaB tests.  Applies for chargers, charge responses or movement as long as a general is within 4BW.

You can see its old as haven't changed it to 2BW but covers all the rest .... so was published 1/1/2018 ... just sayin'
