    You know, India is always the sneaky AI. They always surprise us when they pull a fast-one by sneak attacking when we least expect it. At almost any level or VC type, I make them my first victim in war because of their penchant for back-stabbing. What is strange about India is that when you play as India, they are an excellent civ. They are about the only civ that if you have no Iron anywhere near, it isn't nearly fatal

    What I do when I get nukes is use my diplomats and spies to investigate cities, and if they are working on a wonder and are like 1 turn from it being done, I nuke them and sabatoage their production and then when they change to a military unit, I nuke their resources or pillage them so they just lost their wonder and are now open for me to take over. Or I just wit until the wonder is done, nuke their city with the wonder and take over the city, so I get a free wonder or more than one while not having to worry about building them myself.

    Shouldn't you have most wonders by the time you get nukes? And the game is almost over...

    I don't know about a wonder, but it might be a useful tactic if you are in a race for a space ship launch. Find out where they are building the casing, nuke it and then nuke their aluminum.

    Of course if I am going to start dropping nukes it will probably be for a full out invasion, but I think that tactic could have situational merit. Maybe not enough to resurrect a 4 year old post, but . . .
