The Smoke Turret is a long-range support defense used by the Latin Confederation to weaken enemy forces from a distance.
Among the additional weapons, unique to the Latin Confederation, which rely on creating smoke screen, comes the Smoke Turret. This simple but useful contraption launches volleys of smoke projectiles which blind their enemies if they do not possess adequate navigation equipment. The Smoke Turret is cheap, effective and has great range. With enough spread of the weapon it fires, it can easily decrease the combat potential of incoming enemies, including some of the artillery units.
Smoke Turret can be seen as a building version of Dustdevil and Smoke Bombs. Though the ability is also to reduce the enemy's attack power, the Smoke Turret is mainly used to weaken the enemy's attacking forces instead of harassing.
Smoke Turret is a non-aggressive defense structure, but it requires Battle Lab to unlock. However, the low cost makes up for this deficiency. In addition, the Smoke Turret's range is quite far, which makes most of the units that attack the Latin base cannot escape the smoke bombs from the Smoke Turrets.
Depending on the difficulty, the AI will only build a certain amount of Smoke Turrets. Easy AI will build a maximum of 1 Smoke Turret, Medium AI will build a a maximum of 2, while Hard AI will build a maximum of 3.
