Function

Anti-Air Tower are employed to defend against aerial vehicles, and have lower health and no interior or Master Control Terminal.

The Anti-Air Tower automatically attacks enemy aerial vehicles by firing surface-to-air missiles with homing capabilities. Each missile deals 50 damage, with 2 missiles being fired at a time. The Anti-Air Tower does not deactivate upon destruction of the Power Plant.

Strategy

Counters

As one of the main effective defenses against aerial vehicles, destroying these early allow aerial vehicles to harass the enemy base more freely and remain in the enemy base much longer upon attack. Players can also evade incoming missiles if they move their aerial vehicles fast enough, considering that the homing rockets will not have enough time to turn around.
