Full damage will be inflicted only if the target body is struck completely by the shell.

Automated defense buildings obtain Veterancy by killing Infantry and destroying Vehicles.

Function

Turrets contribute significantly to base defenses, and have lower health and no interior or [[Master Control Terminal].

The Turret automatically attacks nearby tanks and infantry by slowly turning its barrel, and then firing shells at its target. Its damage appears to apply equally through Flak, Kevlar, Light, and Heavy armors. The Turret does not deactivate upon destruction of the Power Plant.

Strategy

Counters

Turrets are a smart target in leau of a building under repair. Destroying them early opens the base up to foot infantry. While less threatening to infantry than the Guard Tower, it can still reliably pose a threat to infantry. One tip is to get point blank to a turret as you can run or drive around it faster than it can turn its barrel. However, at a distance, it easily turns fast enough to keep up with targets, but the travel time of the shell can be avoided easier at farther distances.
