Upgradable Bases: Anti-Aircraft Gun
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:45:57 pm »

So, I had a shite ton of cash and my best liberals were locked up in the slammer, so I decided to buy the $200,000 anti-aircraft. Not even a few weeks later it dropped to $35,000 because of stupid
Arch-Conservative gun control laws. (This was an earlier run, back when I had no idea what to do in the game.) When my base got raided however, it did next to f***ing nothing, except get dismantled when the lower-level thugs got locked up. What is the point of the AA gun exactly?

2. If a pocket is empty but has something in it, what is inside it?
3.What travels around the world but stays in one spot?
4. What happens once in a minute, twice in a moment but never in 1000 years?
1. A candle 2. A hole 3. A stamp 4. The letter "M"

AA guns protect the base from aircraft - IRL, bombers were used against MOVE in Philadelphia, Penn., and this is inspired from this.

Huh, I guess I got physically attacked before bombers came, as I said I didn't know what to do so I didn't stock up on squad weapons, or people trained how to use them, beforehand .

If you successfully defend against the police, the national guard will show up. Beat them, face the army. Beat them, face the navy, with SEALS, and bombers. The AA gun deals with the bombers.
