Planetary Bombardment?

Recommended Posts

Can a capital ship bombard a planet in UC? I guess I'm asking can you target bases from space or do you have to get down there yourself and do it up close and personal.

Have you played any BC game? Any at all?

Sure did. But way back when the first BC3K was released. So I haven't had the honor of working with any of the later versions. UC looks very comprehensive.I wish you success with the roll out.

OTS weapons can be deployed to attack ground targets from orbit, but beam weapons can't.

I believe there's going to be some way for ground targets to attack things in orbit, but I'm not sure about that.

IIRC OTS won;t be in MP, so not very likly you will attack w/o fear of reprisal.

Tried that once, and before I had time to do anything my firestorm (fully upgraded) was shot down in under 9 seconds

Ground is where you're marines belong the CC shouldn't be down there

And don't forget, just because you're cloaked doesn't mean you can't be hit

Thanks for the tip...My CC's seen a lot of planetary combat, and I don't think she ever liked it. It was a cool effect watching the PTA sweep through the base though

Planetary assaults rock!

Nothing like launching a well co-ordinated air/ground offensive with all your marine's, FC's and IC's involved.

And then to top it all off send you AE down to join the fun and order your teams around by TACOPS.

So much fun.
