designed to withstand passenger planes (of the era) crashing into them, which I
call a "heavy impact". They certainly were
designed for an outright
- and probably never
be, because a
attack can wipe out nearby auxiliary systems until the core's cooling fails.
> Not even a smoke machine to obstruct the plants in case of attack.
The only military equipment needing
to aim properly is the one with two legs but no hi-tech helmet/visor. Radar and IR work through usual smoke, and artillery routinely fires at targets they don't have
visual of. Those smoke generators aim at scenarios like 9/11 (manually flown aircraft having
chance at hitting) or Breitscheidplatz (kamikaze truck, preferably a tanker, a la Los Alfaques), not outright warfare.
