DM1 PLASMA CANNON – POINT DEFENSE

Tier 1 point defense turrets all serve the same purpose: they chew up enemy T1 land units, and don’t really do anything past that. They’re a big strain on your early economy, but if you can guess where the enemy will attack, you have a good chance of getting more than your money’s worth from the turret.

RAILGUN – ANTI-AIR TURRET

Unlike T1 mobile anti-air, T1 turrets can actually shoot down enemy aircraft if you build enough of them. If you suspect the opponent of either going for an early bomber / transport strike or teching up and sending in gunships, build a bunch of these. Just a few turrets can convince the opponent that it’s not a good idea to take to the skies.

CALCICRETE – WALL SECTION

Walls don’t count against your unit limit, but you can select and Ctrl-K them if you want to make an entryway. Walls really aren’t very effective except as a way to slow units down, as most units will simply shoot over the top of them  anyway. If you’re on a hill, they might give you some protection, but you might just want to build them a little back from the cliff edge in that case.

SA1-1000 – RADAR SYSTEM

Tech 1 radar isn’t very useful on land, because you have Land Scouts anyway. Instead, build one where you want to upgrade it later, and then when you get an excess of energy at tech level 2, build yourself a T2 radar, which actually has uses in intelligence gathering.

SP1-1000 – SONAR SYSTEM

Tech 1 sonar is like tech 1 radar: so small as to be almost useless, especially since frigates have a decent sonar range. Build one and upgrade it later.

DN1 – TORPEDO LAUNCHER

A Torpedo Launcher is basically an immobile, well-armored, floating sub. Don’t expect it to defend against decent ships any more than T1 point defense will stop T2 land units, but it’ll at least take down a few subs, thus making it much more manageable for your weak T1 UEF navy.
