Shades of the Andromeda Strain! I can accept the argument that certain critical bases should have a self-destruct position, in my campaign it would be Prime, it's backup and the science bases.

I feel better about modifying the fusion demo charge into a variable yield weapon, with its controlling codes held by, say a regional command base and Prime, who have to release their part of the firing code.

Still, not a weapon that will find itself in a team's possession!
The reason that the American Army does so well in wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American Army practices chaos on a daily basis.
