Is there a benefit to multiple interceptors on one satellite?



  • Besides the obvious benefit of having an interceptor as a back up in case one is damaged or destroyed, is there a bonus to having two interceptors on one satellite to protect/shoot down ufos?

    I thought I saw some screenshots of two interceptors against one ufo. But early on, a ufo appears and one interceptor sorties. It shoots it down, but I had two in that area. Why did only one sortie?



  • I've seen two benefits:

    1. Possible to continue a failed attack on a UFO. If the first interceptor dies or aborts you can launch a second interceptor - unlike David Burton I haven't had any problems doing this.

    2. Possible to equip different weapons for different targets, such as high power weapons for larger UFOs. I'm uncertain if this alters what can be recovered on the ground (ie overkill = less items), but I wouldn't be surprised if it does.
