Really neat things in ICBM game that would be cool in Civ VI


Feb 21, 2022
I just wanted to point out to everyone here (especially the modders) this really neat ICBM game to you. I think it would be really would be cool if some of the stuff in it could be modded into Civ VI. There's a lot of units that would be awesome to have in Civ VI. I think it would make modern warfare in Civ VI really interesting. You can see the technologies and units here: ICBM Research Trees and Guides. :: ICBM General Discussions (

I personally am very disappointed with the lack of Tactical Nukes and Cruise Missiles/Guided Missiles in Civ VI. I'm honestly shocked they aren't in the game when they were in the older games.

Civ III: Cruise Missile.
Civ IV and Civ V: Guided Missile.
Civ III and Civ IV and Civ V: Tactical Nuke.

There's a whole slew of Ballistic Missiles and Cruise Missiles that could be added to Civ VI. With the main differences being range and speed. Hypersonic missiles for example would be a very advanced and expensive late game technology. You could also add different types of Radars (Over the Horizon Radar, Space Radar etc) and different Surface to Air units (missile & artillery based). You could also add MIRV Nukes (nuke that splits into many warheads, and a more advanced MIRV that has false warheads) as a unit. You could also add different types of Satellites and Satellite Weapons (laser equipped satellites to destroy ballistic missiles, kinetic orbital weapons) and Anti-Satellite Weapons (missiles launched from land/sea to knock out enemy satellites). Close in weapon systems (like CIWS), anti-ballistic missiles (like THAAD) and Iron Dome type defenses would also be cool.

I do not know how good the modding tools for Civ VI are but maybe the modders who have created unit expansion mods could look into this?

I've seen tactical nukes fired from a nuclear submarine in civ 6 once while watching videos on youtube.
Nuclear submarines can fire nuclear missiles in vanilla.
Never cared for conventional missiles in previous iterations, don't miss them.
