launch sites produce cruise missiles, and in different game modes even satellites or nuke missiles. this little animation shows the areal damage of a cruise missile´s impact. the missile can be shot only once and needs to be bought again for another shot. like in this example units with low armor (defense) are mostly annihilated, even the red trooper. that is because units within the impact radius are attacked regardless of color. subs and air can not be attacked.
