    edit the game and set Cruise Missle to an air unit with more movement( i like to give mine 7 or so). then, give it the highest bombard range possible without giving it infinate range. this will make it impossible for the enemy to steal your Cruise Missles in mid-air.

    Do they really hijack cruise missiles? I've never seen it before.

    Do you mean the AI hijacks them when they're moving along the ground? Surely you don't mean when they're launched? If it's when they're moving, then why don't you have them escorted by a unit with defensive capability? CM's are just like artillery - no defense. If you're moving them out in the open with no escort, you're just offering them to the AI.

    somewhat of a silly tip (no offense intended, you are trying to be helpful) since it tells you not how to combat the problem but just to change the game to make things better for you ;)
