Nuke corps aren't built to turn a profit. They always find their way into debt IF you don't keep pumping cash into them.
They are there to build and supply nukes to your countries. You will NEVER turn a steady profit with nuke corps.

Er, actually T...I do.
A very small profit, just enough to pay for its self. Of course, the country is paying by purchasing the product, but then it does have the bombs...

Although I well expect the imminent implementation of the "deterioration" of stock rule, where-by weapons stocked will become useless with time and so removed from your inventory.
You read it here, remember...

So your plutonium corps are making profits every month, eh?
You have to remember what all goes into the final product and what it took to get those weapons and missiles.
In general, the corps will need cash to stay afloat.

OK, yeah, the plutonium is a bit difficult. Lol, when I first had world domination plans I bought loads of 333Q plutonium, ouch, that cost.
Space Monkeys are much more cost effective.

Yeah you have to factor in all costs associated with the production of each Nuke. Plutonium counts too. LOL.
That is why they are ALL money pits.

I haven't tried the strategic game at all yet. Do I have it figured correctly you can't buy sell products except to your own countries?
Can you sell them in your federation?

you can sell them to anybody but only directly or by a contract..just not the world market.

Tell the corp to sell higher and then contract production to your own country.
I think then, in the contract itself, it will show market price but sell at the price it was assigned to sell at in accordance to its trade strategy.
Same goes for plutonium and other raw materials - just tell it to sell its product to enough local nuclear corps to meet quota (or lower quota by lowering hiring and/or salaries). Of course, this also drives up the price of the nuclear corp even higher and raises costs for your country.
I could be wrong about all this.
But the alternative - to actually make money selling nuclear stuff, is to contract it to other players. Doing it with slaves probably results in the greater over all cost impact on the empire.
