The Cloud Piercer Expansion is an add-on for the Wings of Coronia Cloud Piercer, which grants them full access to the Wings of Coronia's arsenal. It also allows the use of a shield that protects the Coronian Quetzals from enemy fire.
To acquire full access to their technology, each of the Foehn Revolt's subfaction must upgrade a technology building which corresponds to its technology and strategy choice. This is why Haihead will aim to construct an Expansion for the Cyberkernel, the Wings of Coronia will upgrade the Cloud Piercer and the Last Bastion will focus on developing an addition to the Nanofiber Loom.
Besides playing its role as the Tier 3 expander for the Wings of Coronia that unlocks their air armada and other advanced units, the Cloud Piercer Expansion provides the following support power:
|All operational Coronian Quetzals in the battlefield can be protected with a projectile-jamming shield that greatly increases their durability for a limited time. The Quetzal Shield costs $1000 to activate and takes 6:30 to recharge.|
Once Wings of Coronia has installed a Cloud Piercer Expansion, it becomes very crucial for them to defend this building, as they will lose a myriad of their access to their high technology as well as the aforementioned attributes of the Cloud Piercer once it is destroyed.
