Yes..they can. I will never forget what I've seen one time. Noone explained it to me in the past and I dont give reasons. Maybe a bug, maybe a miracle...I just to know that I've seen a group of fighters destroy a nuke. Eheheh, thanks god cause I've seen it which is hiden to the professors. :P

It's not a bug, but the probability of them succeeding is very low.

Someone who has seen the source code said that it's impossible. I can't remember who it was, but it's been quoted on here before. It's also been tested many times.


It's most likely a lag phenomenon... We don't always see what's really happening, in perfect sync. The packet of an AA fire might have been missed. Also, when the server lags a lot of weird stuff happens.

This is an interesting reason. But my faith resists :wink:

It's also possible to get battleships to shoot at nukes.




On a serious note, here are the probabilities from the Defcon AI API documentation:

Dear Vicious,
I'm really, really sorry, but your time is up. Hereby, I donate the £10.00 to someone else.

I will offer Lady the money first. I hope this will not offend all the gentlemen.:wink:
LSWP are you still interested?

Is this against any rules, Ace?
