When units are inside a bunker, does this bunker give them additional range? I believe in SC and/or SC:BW they gave units an increased range. Is this true in either?

Basically: Do bunkers give range benefits to units inside?

Not even close to a duplicate. This question is asking what benefits do bunkers give to units inside of them. I'm not asking what units I should put in them. – Nick122 Jun 9 '12 at 13:59
@Sorean the only relevance relies in your answer, not the question. – Nick122 Jun 9 '12 at 14:00

In both games units inside the bunker get a flat +1 range.

In SC:BW they can sometimes also get range boosts because of how angles worked in the game. For example, Marines (4 range) inside a bunker can hit Range upgraded Dragoons (6 range) unless those Dragoons are positioned properly.
