Ok, I am new to this game, only been playing about 2 weeks but decided I would attack my neighbor, I know, I am a terrible person :-}, except my attacks are having no effect, worse then that I don't get how this works. Say I launch an attack from a Mid-Range missle launcher, I don't loose a missle, my missle launcher is destroyed. Now that makes no sense to me and the one thing that shows up in all the messages after I attack is this (The attack may have been reduced or eliminated by Anti Missile Missiles.), but it says he didn't use any ammo, what gives, any information would be greatly appreciated.

You hafta use the right weapons. The documentation contains the descriptions of almost all the weapons, and there effectivness. Read it, then ask more specific questions.

I went back over the documentation and most of the information about the weapons systems was fairly straight foward and what you would expect. My problem is that is not what I am seein in actual attacks. The only thing that has been effective so far have been attack helocopters and that is only in getting the enemy to use his Anti Missle Missles which he has now depeleted. The only problem is that when I attack now the message I get is that the attack may have been reduced by the use of Anti Missle Missles which the computer no longer has, so what gives.

Ok, begining to think this game isn't working. I lanunch an attack with a Mid Range Missle, my launncher is destroyed but I still have the same number of missles, so it is like the missle was never fired in the first place and I have used no defensive weaponary even though I was attacked. This isn't the way this is supposed to work, is it?

If you use a weapon against a target that it is not effective against, this will happen.
I beleive this will also happen if you attack a target with a weapon that can be destroyed by defensive helicopters, when you haven't destroyed all the defensive heli's.

The MRMB will only fire its missiles when you fire enough to get through the defence.

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to say. The defense fires first, and if no MRMB's survive then no missile are used.

So what should I use to attack first. I have eliminated all of his Anti Missles Missles but it still says that the attack was eliminated because of them. I hear everyone talk about using lots of heavy jeeps but they seem totally ineffective. Is there anyway to destroy the airport as I would assume if I could do that then I wouldn't have to worry about his helocopters. Thanks for the help so far, though I am begining to think I made a mistake by assuming that if a country didn't have a defense index of over 100 that is was attackable, this country only has a 15 and so far I have lost a ton of stuff with no impact.
