Nuclear Silo - idea for the new weapon for Marines

Hi,
this is my first post here. I also didn't know where exactly I should place this thread so I decided to make it in Fan-Fiction site.
Okay, let's get to the business :). I have an idea for UWE to add new weapon/building for Marines. This is my concept of this:
- Commander can build it as a normal structure, but you need at least two "chairs" for that. It will be quite expensive.
- Function of Nuclear Silo (ideas, choose which one are better):
+ Can generate power for other structures in area like a battery for turrets
+ It dosent let build a cysts in vicinity
+ It could also produce a radiation which wound aliens
+ Nuclear weapon (bomb) which cost a lot to detonate by comm, but destroys everything in room. I'm thinking to use it in a late games as a sneaky nuclear drops in aliens bases :P.
I have no artwork concept, but maybe somebody will share my enthusiasm :).

I think UWE could also make a new toy for marines, gas masks, to defend against lerk gas. Cost would be the same like a welder :) avaiable in armory.
Cheers! :D

    Nah, too potentially powerful/abusable. (EVERYTHING IN A ROOM?! Even marines? Herp derp khermander, hop in, blowest up thine nuke!)

    I dont think we need gas masks.
    We already have fm against lerks gas.
    Poor lerks, they have problem in late game and if we adds this...x_x

    gas sucks enough as is, the lerk has such a subtle diet, and it cant fart enough gass to kill marines efficiently. and it's very tiring.

    The nutritional value of a marine just is not high enough. The lerks get their iron requirements from the armor though, lots of it.
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    Rather than killing everything in a room, why not an EMP effect... it wouldn't be a nuclear silo then however :P

    Needs building + charging + if killed could short-circuit power?



    Also, lerk spikes could embed in marines and slow them down... (as a silly idea).

    What this game needs is a lazer gun. How can you be marines fighting aliens in space with no pew pew, its just criminal...
