I'm with you as far as expanding the usefulness of base defense platforms goes. Maybe they should be able to engage passing craft. It's a thought!
No no no thats not what I meant at all
, remember that X-com bases are top secret UNDERGROUND facilities that they did not want the aliens discovering the location of <_< , what I wanted was another location which was also underground, like a missile Silo, which could shoot down passing aircraft and then hide back underground
I guess you could add them to the "Intercept" list so that they wernt totally automatic and it would fire upon a craft as soon as its in range.
Any ideas about how they could be destroyed?
