yes it does. Im too lazy to write a comprehensive explanation, but I can at least give you something. It should be clearly obvious from the fact that you lost interceptors.
Your missle interceptor batteries and aa batteries are only effective if they are AT the location being attacked. They are not shared. Unless all those batteries were in the city attacked, they didnt do a damn thing.
After your 45% shared response kicked in, some of the navy fiughters were still alive to shoot. 11k (or however many you had, 11k doesnt quite add up right) interceptors is not enough to wipe out a 10k navy fighter attack in the first salvo (there are 4 rounds of fire exchange). This is why they managed to kill some of your interceptors. In the second salvo (out of the 4), the interceptors fired again and took out the few remaining navy fighters before they could fire
The exchange went:
1. Defnsive MIbs stationed at the city short some of the fighter missles down. in fact there was only 1-2 MIBs at the city, going from your newspaper.
2. Other Defensive batteries fire, along with defensively delployed off aa batteries. I doubt you had any at the city, again going from the newspaper; certainly not very many. Id guess that youre using the auto-deploy on default priorities.
3. 45% of the shared interceptors IN RANGE respond, and fire their first salvo. This is not enough to kill all of the navy fighters.
4. The surviving navy fighters shoot at the interceptors. Some of your interceptors are killed.
repeat steps 1,2,and 3. The second volley from the interceptors is enough to finish the attacking interceptors.
if he had been able to use all 16000 your 2 air forces would have aproximately cancelled each other out.
John you neednlt fight me. I in fact dont plan to get involved unless the other few relics of the past on fearless do the same (none of us plan to, it would be too unbalancing. Our empires on full blast + our experience can cut through this new generation like knives through hot butter...)
However I am sure that you could find other ways to amuse yourself. And members of my federation would in fact be grateful
Then again I certainly wouldnt be offended if you decided to attack me either
Ocean shores can come and play too. I noticed that both of you were active in the long, long days of my absence from simcountry. I am sure that wartime or nimz or CSA can find you guys a nice happy home to move into (perhaps an eviction of the current residents would be necesary, knowing them... ;) )
