Dumb Idea: Nuke Transfer.

Postby extremejon » Mon Oct 16, 2006 9:17 pm

So, have you ever launched all your bombers, and have a bunch of nukes lieing around in your airbases collecting dust? How About some way to move the nukes from your airbase to your Silos?

Silo launch LRBM, Bombers launch SRBM, they are two diffrent kinds, you can't move them.

And a part of the game is protecting your bombers so they can get back to the airbase and pick up more bombs, if you play the game well your missles shouldn't be collecting dust, they should be turning cities into dust.

long range ballistic missile. what the game calls them

but inter-continental ballistic missile is i believe the accepted term.

along with such other happy favorites as Multiple Indipendently Targetable Re-entry Vehicle. or M.I.R.V.

the Peacemaker missile could carry up to 11 of these warheads. each up to 25 times more powerful than the hiroshima explosion.

If you have any bombers left, simply send bombers near the airport with nukes, and the bombers will land and restock there. ( If that bomber already has a nuke, give it a mission. :P

"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."

"Sure you will."

Sounds like you're sending bombers on missions that are too risky, I usually send bombers against targets that are relatively near to my own territory, so they have some cover from fighters/battleships. You can move bombers between airbases, so as long as you don't send them all into enemy territory, you can usually move them around to collect remaining nukes at the end of the game.

hmmm if you dumped all your bombers, but have some nukes left ... it would be funny to trade them with allies ... and thinking of defcon getting a global ranking system perhaps soon nukes would be sold on ebay or something :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not a bad idea, and also interesting to add decoy bases, silos etc - or be able to put more nukes in one place and less in others.

BLUFF, BLUFF and BLUFF...


Food for thought.
