That is an old, well known, well documented bug. In the future, try searching the forums before posting. Also, bug reports belong in the Windows Troubleshooting section (which should really be called just plain "Troubleshooting"), or in one of the other sections below the fold, as appropriate.

However, for future reference, your bug report needs improvement. First off, give your topic a title that actually describes the bug. That way, when other people search the forums, the title of your post will mean something to them. Then, in the body of your post, describe what is going on. A screenshot is useful, but it doesn't tell the whole story. You need to describe what causes that behaviour to happen. If you don't know what causes it to happen, do some experimenting.

This would have been more helpful:

Nukes Behave Strangely at the Map Wrap

If a nuke is launched such that it will cross the map wrap line twice, when it hits the line, it will behave in an odd manner. It will shoot up to the north pole, and fly around all crazy like, or it will bounce around along the wrap line. The easiest way to reproduce this bug is to get a bomber or sub very close to the line, then launch due south, so that the nuke's target will be on the same side of the line as the launching unit. You can see that in this screenshot:

Is there some kind of sign of being part of "i have written about that before" community? :)

Bork'd. :cry:

Is it?
1: Use Carriers for radar.
2: Protect them with a shield of Battleships.
3: Launch Bombers, and keep them behind the battleships.
4: Send out Fighters at regular intervals to counter enemy Bombers.
The result: The enemy ships won't see what's killing them :D .

Or is it... CHEATING!, by using the black areas at the top and bottom of the map? :x .
