AI War:Lightning Warhead
|This page is up to date for game version 6.010|
|A large bomb using one of the most brute-force weapons technology available to humanity. Capable of a truly disgusting amount of damage, this device focuses causes an enormous wave of devastation which first annihilates the weakest objects in its range and moves up from there. As objects are disintegrated, the wave's power diminishes, so the damage listed above is actually the maximum total possible that this device can deliver (regardless of the number of targets in range).|

How to use in your fleet
The AIP cost of these warheads might be considered cheap enough for their destructive power. Unlike the Nuclear Warhead, they can be used in moderation to soften a difficult defensive battle or to blow up a particularly nasty combination of AI defenses. However, players might be aware of their "per unit" damage cap. If a single, big unit is to be destroyed, the use of an armored warhead might be preferred.
With an auto-AIP of 1 per half-hour, players might consider the use of a MkI lightning warhead to solve any problem that would take more time otherwise.
