Cant afford a whole new base? You want to defend one of your high-paying countries? Why not have an option to build a remote firebase thats only function would be to shoot down any UFO's in its range. For instance they would cost 1/4 to set up compared to a normal base but only have 4 base components - these components would only be allowed to be radar & defence stations. Obviously they would be a prime target for the aliens when they get more aggressive .... whats the first thing you do when you want to invade? Take down the air defence. Thus it would be a new type of mission for the battlescape - protecting the firebases.
