Air Defense System
|The best wing defensive structure is now the Patriot. This is because the Patriots inflicts the highest amount of damage to the aircraft. The role of the Defense Officer is therefore very simple, just build as many Patriots as possible. To solve this problem, we brought new Air Defense System.|
Each air defense system has a certain altitude range in which it can successfully engage and destroy a target. For example the SA-2 missile is designed to intercept aircraft flying at a medium to high altitude. It would be unable to engage low flying aircraft. The same goes pretty much for the aircraft. Some aircraft are designed for low altitude and others for flying very high. For example the A-10 is designed for flying at low altitude. In the new system the SA-2 would be able to hit the B-52 but not the A-10. However the A-10 would be vulnerable to the ZSU-23 anti aircraft artillery, whereas the B-52 would simply be out of reach.
To see at which altitude the air defense system performs best, looks at the added data in the defense structure table. To know at which altitude your aircraft will be vulnerable to air defenses, look at the altitude in the aircraft information screen at McCoy.
Aircrafts are labelled as ultra high(UH), high(H), medium(M) or low(L) altitude flying.
