Is it a good strategy to launch a satellite over a country in the red on panic to calm them down? Am I correct that they will withdraw at the end of the month? If so, will the satellites calm them enough to prevent that? Also if they do withdraw, do I lose the satellite? The reason I ask is because a launch is rather expensive over all. Including the interceptors that I will be launching.

    Although these two questions have complete answers with many common details, I believe these are fundamentally different questions about countries and satellites.

    @Frank are these duplicate questions? "Do I lose the ability to move my checker piece if it reaches the opponent's side of the board?" and "Can I get my checker piece back if the opponent captures it?". There can be more than one question about an element of a game.

If the country withdraws, you will lose the satellite.

Countries only abandon at 5 panic and only at the end of month (during the report).

Launching a satellite reduces panic in that country by 2. If this is done just before the end of month, it is unlikely events will happen to cause panic to rise to 5 before the country pays you.

It is a good strategy to control panic via satellites.

    A country will also abandon immediately if you fail to respond to a terror attack. Jul 26, 2014 at 9:00
