China's obsession with Gattling technology is not misplaced; after all, it formed an effective anti-air and anti-infantry defense. As such, the Gattling Cannon is a product of this obsession. Although composed of nothing more than two Gatling guns and and a rudimentary aiming system, this defense is the bane of all infantry and aircraft. Although it has lost its ability to detect stealth units, this weapons system is still a force to be reckoned with.
The Gattling Cannon is the basic defense of China, buildable after the creation of a Nuclear Reactor. It has two gattling guns that can be further improved by researching the Chain Guns upgrade. It does admirable damage to exposed infantry and aircraft (fixed-wing and helicopters), but performs poorly against armored targets. Moreover, it cannot detect stealth units.
