OBLIVION – T2 POINT DEFENSE

The Oblivion does an awful lot of damage, but it shoots slowly, so fast-moving T1 and T3 units can change direction to avoid its shots. There are two options for building an Oblivion: as a forward emplacement to destroy the opponent’s T1 defenses, or in a big group as a base defense that outclasses the Cybran or UEF equivalents en masse.

MARR – ANTI-AIR FLAK ARTILLERY

Flak anti-air is leagues better than guns, and it stays useful against gunships until the end of the game, so you might as well take the plunge and build some after scouting to see if your opponent has T2 air yet. Don’t forget that it’s amphibious, so if your opponent is the type to build T2 air to take out your T2 torpedo launchers, there’s a solution.

MIASMA – ARTILLERY INSTALLATION

T2 artillery is expensive to build and operate, but offers a painless way to protect your base from huge threats like sea bombardment or experimentals without having to worry about micromanaging your tactical missile launcher. If you expect destroyers to be shelling your shoreline, or if you want to creep up defenses to within their base, build T2 artillery as fire support. Aeon T2 artillery was retuned in build 3251; now it’s just as powerful as the other sides’ artillery pieces, but slightly more accurate.

SERPENTINE – TACTICAL MISSILE LAUNCHER

The more quick-fingered among you will love tactical missile launchers. They’re cheap to build, they always hit the target on the first shot, and you can fire them quite rapidly if they’re stockpiled. Unfortunately, en masse, it’s too much trouble to keep building and firing them. So these launchers shine on small maps or as a gambit inside a forward base, so that you can take out enemy Commanders and defensive positions.

VOLCANO – TACTICAL MISSILE DEFENSE

Tac Missile Defense is rather useless on the sea, since your T2 ships have it anyway; instead, build it in a defensive position you expect to be attacked by T2 mobile missile launchers. The defense against enemy Tactical Missiles is merely a side benefit, but since especially Cybrans rely on mobile missile launchers, you can extend your T2 point defense’s lifespan significantly. It’s worth noting that the Aeon missile defense deflects missiles instead of just destroying them, so it has a very small maximum range, but it’s constantly active. Build these as a complement to your defenses on the front lines, as trying to protect your whole base is too expensive.

TECH 2 RADAR SYSTEM

T2 radar actually has a decent range, although it still has no armor. Make sure you can handle its -250 energy drain – radar is no good when you turn it off.

TECH 2 SONAR SYSTEM

T2 sonar covers a very long range, making it useful to detect subs in pitched naval battles as well as scarier threats like underwater experimentals later. Plus you can upgrade it further to make it more useful.

SHIELD OF LIGHT – SHIELD GENERATOR

The Aeon T2 shield generator is small, cheap to maintain, but can’t really be upgraded and doesn’t connect to other buildings for adjacency bonuses. It is perfectly serviceable for protecting your defensive emplacements or T2 power farms, however, and it helps to be able to just throw one up anywhere you expect the enemy to attack.

VEIL – STEALTH FIELD GENERATOR

The Aeon stealth generator at least has a decent stealth radius, allowing you to cloak your secret T2 power outpost or forward artillery / Tac Missile position, but it’s expensive to operate and you can’t decrease it with adjacency. This is another micromanagement-heavy unit, but if you manage to conceal your building of a T3 artillery in range of their base, the benefits can be huge.

WAVE BREAK – T2 TORPEDO LAUNCHER

The Heavy Torpedo Launcher is vulnerable to destroyers shelling it from afar, but if anything ventures into its radius, it’s a formidable opponent. The Aeon’s damage advantage will usually be wastead, as it overkills T1 ships, but even the superior Aeon navy can need some of these to serve as a last-ditch defense, or protect against unknown assaults in a big multiplayer game.

CRADLE – AIR STAGING FACILITY

An Air Staging Facility is boring but necessary, as it prevents your aircraft (especially patrolling fighters) from losing fuel and becoming useless. You generally don’t need one unless there are substantial air threats to you.
