Planetary Missile Pads

Should orbital defenses fail, a colony's last defenses before a hostile invasion are its Missile Pads. Missile defenses can target any ship in orbit around a planet, dealing enough damage to destroy smaller starships or finish off more formidable targets that have already taken damage. Should the enemy manage to land their armies on the planet, Missile Pads will provide the defending armies an edge over their attackers.
