You are a bang that wants more territory. You are armed to the teeth with many gang members, lots of weapons.

You attack a neighboring gang that you used to basically control, because they seem to want to align with another gang a bit further away that hasn’t moved in on your territory, but you’re worried that they might, at some point.

The faraway gang doesn’t actually get involved in the fight, but they throw some arms at the gang you’re fighting, so that they can at least defend themselves.

Is the faraway gang in the fight? Yes or no?

No. As stated in the scenario above, the faraway gang hasn’t actually gotten involved in the fight themselves.
