Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Compared to its longer-range cousin, the Trinity strategic nuclear launcher, the Missile Silo fires smaller Tactical Missiles cannot be intercepted by Antinuke coverage.

The missiles can take damage while on the Silo, and if they (or the Silo itself) are destroyed, the missiles will explode. While missiles cannot be intercepted while they are in flight, they might hit the ground (especially if terraformed) or a shield and explode before they reach the intended target.
