Tactical Missiles

Tactical Missiles are range weapons, used against immovable or not moving targets. Compared to minor missiles they have to be produced, but have a significant higher damage and range. All tactical missiles from all factions have similar specifications.
Tactical Missiles can be countered by a Tactical Missile Defence (TMD), shields and deflection. A Cybran tactical missile can be shot down by one TMD projectile instead of two, but the missile will split into three smaller missiles as a result. Cybran Loyalists can deflect all tactical missiles, including the UEF Nuclear Warhead. Deflected missiles fly back and damage the launcher, while logically ignoring the enemy shields and TMD.

Tactical Missiles can be built by:

  • Tactical Missile Launchers (TML)
  • Armored Command Unit (upgraded)
  • Support Command Unit (upgraded)

Aeon and Cybran Commanders can not upgrade a TML. The Seraphim SCU is the only one which can upgrade the TML.

Strategic Missiles

Strategic missiles are long range weapons with a huge area damage effect. They ignore shields and can only be countered by a strategic defense missile.

Strategic missiles can be built by:

  • Tech 3 Strategic Missile Launcher
  • Tech 3 Strategic Missile Submarine
  • Seraphim Tech 3 Battleship
  • Seraphim Experimental Missile launcher

The UEF ACU Nuclear Warhead occupies a special position within the missiles. Although it is classified as an advanced tactical missile, and can be countered by a tactical missile defense, it will be listed here for comparison because of its similarities to strategic missiles.
