missile defense satellites targeting my own missiles?

#1 Post by Cdiplayer » Sep 26 2017

As the title says, I have launched several missile defense satellites and they appear to be destroying my own missiles! I launched a nuclear attack on the USSR who has no missile defense satellites in orbit (I know, I checked in multiplayer) and yet my missiles keep getting shot down.

Ouch. That would be something for BG to look into. The first thing that pops into my mind, no matter how far fetched; If Russia does not have SDI, do they have an agreement with some other nation for Missile Defense?

Does that only apply when the missiles actually fly over the nation they have the treaty with? All the missiles were shot down over Tanganyika, and I know for a fact that they don't have any missile defense satellites...although I have a missile defense treaty with them.

My guess would be, the treaty you have with Tanganyika is causing this. I seem to have a vague memory of this happening before..


EDIT: I found a post by tkobo from 2010. He confirms SDI will take out ANY missiles flying over a region that has the Missile Defense, or treaty.

Last id looked,it would even shoot down your own missiles IF they traveled thru a region that you had the treaty with, and had the satellites.IE your satellites would shoot down your missiles because they in were the airspace of an ally with whom you had the treaty .....


As for why you can get the treaty even though you dont have the satellites ?Well, the party you want the treaty with could have them.And yes, it can appear quirky when neither has them.
