Viper blinding cloud question

Zerg Discussion
Hey guys, If i recall in the first starcraft your units where also effected by the defilers cloud like ability so I was curious in sc2 does the vipers ranged damage nerf also effect my units in the cloud or only the enemy?
Blinding cloud affects your own units as well as enemy units.
Blindling Cloud affectc everything, including static defences. It does not affects widow mine
air units to?
no air units fly above the cloud
ok roger that thanks guys
Blinding cloud sets all ground units' range to melee.

*Siege Tanks have a minimum range, so deployed stanks under a blinding cloud literally can't attack.

*Cloud even affects buildings, so you can virtually disable a Planetary fortress or Photon Cannons with Vipers.

If I remember correctly It was the opposite in sc1, you'd cast it on your own units or where you want to put your units cause it would make them immune from tank fire under the cloud.

Exactly.

Dark swarm was kinda the opposite of cloud. Cloud reduces range of units under it, swarm makes units under it immune to ranged.
