I have been playing around with Broken Shield 300, and I finally made it to the end where the Syrian side fires off ballistic missiles at Israel. They are successfully fended of by the THAADs and the Arrows. That function works perfectly.
After about 2 or 3 waves of ballistic missiles, the Israeli side needs to reload, but here comes another wave of ballistic missiles. The only available units to be able to shoot at the ballistic missiles are some Patriot batteries, and some David's Sling batteries. Of course, neither of these can shoot until the ballistic missiles re-enter the atmosphere from space. The ceiling for both of the Israeli missiles is 100k feet. When the ballistic missiles are within the parameters, both of the Israeli missiles fire. These are Crossing Targets that are essentially being fired at from about a 45 degree angle. In every case, when the Patriot or David's Sling missiles got close to the ballistic missile, a message would indicate that they had "overshot their target."
Granted, hitting a ballistic missile is hard enough, and hitting a fast moving ballistic missile is even harder, and if you add the fact that it is a crossing target as well, then it is probably really difficult.
So, without getting too deep into this topic, are these two missiles working as designed? Or, should they have been able to intercept the ballistic missiles under those circumstances? They certainly arrive in the area as designed, but they always indicate that they have "overshot" their target.
If you say that that is how it is supposed to work, then I am perfectly fine with that. But, if they are actually supposed to be able to hit crossing ballistic missile targets, then they aren't do so.
Basically, nothing needs to be investigated until you advise that it isn't working as you expected. If that it the case, then I'll provide some saves.
Thanks in advance.
