Space Military Power (Decisive Action)
This is my Satellite Launch Facility for the group Decisive Action.
About this creation

One parabolic dish pointing at the sky, check.

Command center.

Power Plant.

A hangar for scrambling air support during launch. that makes 3 buildings, check.

The launch pad can launch rockets straight up or at an angle.

The launcher is a modified rail gun designed to launch the rocket as soon as the engine fires, saving fuel so the rocket has longer range. The power required for the rail gun means there has to be a power plant near by.

A shot of the rocket. The engine has thrust vectoring to compensate for not being in the center of the rocket.

I like your unconventional approach to the rocket design. You are specifications accurate for the category, but not for the Forced Perspective bonus. You can always modify this post later and go for the bonus. Good luck!

Quoting Zach Eli "Sierra" Sykes The one problem here is that with the off-center engine, it'd do blackflips off the tower. Since DA doesn't consider this (even though its a pretty important physics thing), you can probably get away with it.
Thanks for pointing that out, I've added something that should fix that problem.

Love the micro buildings, real industrial looking. Cool rocket. Congrats on taking A16, great move. We'll be sending an invite to 2TA soon. And welcome aboard!
