Tactics and Strategy
Be aware that the missiles can take damage while on the Silo, and if they or the Silo itself is destroyed the missiles will explode. While missiles cannot be intercepted as such while they are in flight, they might hit the ground (especially if terraformed) or a shield and explode before they reach the target which you intended.
For more information, see the Missile Silo Tutorial.
Striders Reef and Scylla can stockpile and fire disarming and nuclear tactical (respectively) missiles in situations that require mobility. Like Missile Silo's missiles, they also cannot be intercepted by an antinuke.
