The Skyshield Battery is the main anti-aircraft stationary defense used by the European Continental Alliance.

LoreEdit

The Sky Shield is a light-weight short range air defence system of Swiss and German origin. The central piece of a battery is the highly advanced fire control radar which can autonomously detect and track airborne targets. The moment an enemy aircraft moves into range, it will be greeted by the two 35mm guns that fire a special programmable round marketed as the 'Birdshot' for its ability to burst into a wave of shrapnel in front of the target, causing catastrophic damage to even the most heavily armoured airframes within seconds.

Structure DescriptionEdit

A base defense with dual anti-aircraft guns with decent weapon range and a fast rate of fire (but not so as fast the Gatling cannon), and it deals medium damage, but the Skyshields also does splash damage for each strike, thanks to the canister rounds. Skyshields are incapable of targeting ground units. Like many other base defenses, it is vulnerable against artillery weaponry and requires aircraft protection against artillery. These defenses don't deal much damage against fast aircraft so it is recommended to build more of 2 defenses of this type. It is best used against helicopters, since they are slower than jet aircraft.

TriviaEdit

  • Prior to 1.8.0.2, the Skyshield Battery had three guns instead of two, but the number was reduced for balance reasons.
