Scottish1900 Posted December 31, 2012 Share Posted December 31, 2012 As we know, Missiles are in the ICBM mod, and they are incredibly destructive. The most obvious first defense would be obsidian, since it blocks MOST explosives. But what if they launch a nuke? Or anti matter bomb? Or even a red matter bomb? Well, you can add Radar stations along your borders. They require constant power, and can scan over an area, sending a redstone signal when it gets within range of the warning radius.(You are able to change the radius of the Radar. Right click it, the first number is the alarm zone. When a missile gets within range of that, it sends a redstone signal.) This can be hooked up to an Anti-ballistic missile, which will then chase the rocket through the air, and destroying it mid flight. That is a nice addition, true. But that is a one shot system. You may need something more... Advanced. Another possible solution is called the EMP Tower. This is a hyper expensive machine, but it pays for itself in a missile attack. What's interesting about the EMP tower is it fries missiles that come in range, detonating them in the air. You can change what it will target by right clicking it. Set it to missiles, when it recieves a redstone signal, it will send a powerful wave of electricity, effectively frying them. (As a defense against clusters, I suggest setting up the EMP with a bit of a delay to try and eliminate as many missiles as possible.) Little side note, EMPs need ALOT of power. The larger the radius of the wave, the more electricity is required. So! You have your energy hooked up to your Radar tower and EMP tower, now you need to link them. Do this by simple redstone. The Radar tower will send a redstone signal, setting off the EMP wave. Now, we are basicly missile proof. With our obsidian bunker, no explosives can reach us, except the really expensive ones. But, we aren't safe. The Chemical missile and Contagion missile actually send their toxins THROUGH the wall. You will want to dig down a bit to prevent such an attack, and have antidotes on hand. Now your base is decently defended against long range missile attacks! Bombs are another story, and require another world of protection. Please, add to this! I love listening to your ideas on how to make effective bunkers against missiles, and I read every comment. Put in suggestions, state if I did something wrong, I don't care. I want to hear back.
