G.C.I. Radar


“Summons an allied fighter aircraft that fires a missile at the first enemy aircraft unit in range, dealing area of effect damage to all nearby enemy aircraft. This trap does not target ground troops.”


General Information[]

  • The G.C.I. Radar (Ground-controlled interception Radar) is a trap that is triggered by nearby Aircraft. When triggered, it would strike the Aircraft with missiles severely damaging it.
  • It is unlocked in the Information Age
  • It requires 2 citizens to build or upgrade.
  • They are considered the most important defense in the game; attackers fear them more than any other defense. When scouting a base for an alliance mate, locating them is the most important scouting measure
  • They also target helicopters and drones; so any flying objects; including the general Zhukov and Offensive Drone

Historical Description[]

Ground Controlled Interception (GCI) is an air defense tactic that has been used by militaries around the World since World War I. It involves using radar systems to communicate with aircraft, warning and guiding them to incoming aerial threats. Due to the offensive power spike provided by the player’s second Airstrip building in the Atomic Age, we wanted to explore how Ground Controlled Interception could be used in DomiNations to help defend against Air units in the late game.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • These are good to place near important defensive buildings including but not limited to the rocket arsenal, bunkers, and the Burj Al Arab, because the enemy will likely try to deploy fighters to deal with the defenders coming out of them
