    I think I'll become capable today, so If I DU would lend me his Uranium, and Vorak wouldn't mind me disabling the trade between out nations for a short period of time, I could get a nuke.

    You realise you need to be in the top 5% which is about 8,600 strength at the moment? DE got caught out by the same thing.

    I'm over 9200 right now, but I'm lacking in a uranium trade.

    You might have to offer a money deal with a uranium trade for a period of time, allowing you to buy a nuke.

    Okay, how many nukes do you guys plan on buying? Do you want to make the trade for a week and see if you can't pick up 7 of them each? It'd bolster the HoL quite a lot to have a nice arsenal ready to go just in case.

    It all boils down to how much money you're making (so you're making enough to buy 1 per day) as well as being able to afford the maintenance on them afterwards. At the least I'd suggest you both get 3 - 5.

    It might be an idea to save up for a few days too. Just collect taxes and pay bills, drop your trades, buy a nuke per day (and pay bills so you can still buy nukes but don't collect taxes) and then afterwards, once you get your trades back, re-establish your old trades and then collect a couple of days worth of unpaid taxes.

    I plan on picking up 21 eventually but at the moment, I'm buying 10 levels of infrastructure and replacing my aircraft with level 9's at the rate of about 4 per day. I've got about a week to go, though dropping my trades will put that on hold for a while. The other option is you find people with Uranium who have free trade slots and just spam them with trade request messages until one bites.

    As long as you plan on becoming my trade partner again go ahead and cancel it, but I won't collect taxes until you make the trade offer again so I don't want to leave it more than 4 days at the most when we do it.

    Any longer than that and I'll probably get hit by tech raiders.

    Congratulations. I'll probably never get nukes, but on the other hand, I don't need nukes. If I'll ever get attacked, then I hope some of you will help me.:p

    Disabled or non-existant? That is the question.

    I've decided to pick up some more nukes for myself while I've got my trade with Xz. Nukes are more than 10% cheaper with his trade resources!
