    This mod makes both nuke launchers and anti-nuke launchers cheap as dirt and buildable by any fabricator. That's it.

    [Now on PAMM!]

    Changes:
    Nuke Launcher changed to basic tech level.
    Nuke Launcher metal cost reduced to 144.
    Nuke Launcher health reduced to 150.
    Nuke Launcher build arm energy consumption reduced to 180.
    Nuke metal cost reduced to 50.
    Anti-Nuke Launcher changed to basic tech level.
    Anti-Nuke Launcher metal cost reduced to 120.
    Anti-Nuke Launcher health reduced to 350.
    Anti-Nuke Launcher build arm energy consumption reduced to 90.
    Anti-Nuke metal cost reduced to 33.

    Now that is an extreme real world logical change lol. But it really does make sense in context. Nuclear is for a fact easier than fusion and if you can do fusion you can do antimatter bombs. Since a t1 power plant is pretty obviously at least nuclear... Hard to make a logical argument against this.

    Lel. Seriously though, the only remotely hard part about a nuclear bomb is the fission matter, and the fabbers appear to use some sort of energy-to-mass construction method and storage system.

    Agreed. Much of the complexity of an icbm is shielding, propulsion, guidance, security, and fail safes. Essentially the actual bomb part is pretty much just as you say the core and the shape charge. with all that other stuff being dirt cheap in the PA universe nukes would be as well. Land units would totally include crawling nuclear bombs and flying nuclear cruise missiles of tactical yield, especially if the only interest in the planet was the presence of the enemy.

    I think the only reason why that wouldn't be a thing is due to the fact that nukes can't be blocked by the standard friendly-fire shielding systems.
