— In-game Description


The Lightning Tower is an extremely powerful defense highlighted by its high cost to build. It functions as both a Lightning Trooper and a Lightning Tank because it shoots a burst of lightning and has a combined hp and armor of Stat-Armor-HP 500. The range one tower covers is relatively large. It also requires only one population to operate making this defensive structure ideal for saving population and allocating it to other useful means.
