The Flak Cannon is a stationary anti-air tower that shoots an explosive projectile at overhead aircraft that has an area of effect damage, allowing it to take out blobs of aircraft with ease.

Generally it’s better for aircraft to avoid Flak Cannons and use ground forces to destroy these defensive structures.


Uber Entertainment originally didn’t want to add a flack tower as the advanced anti air defense tower. However, due to overwhelming response from the Planetary Annihilation community, Uber added the Flak Cannon.

The Flack Tower is a structure confirmed by Uber on the November 27th Livestream.

The Flak Cannon was added in Build 59549 and used the basic Missile Defense Tower model.

The new Flak Cannon unique model was revealed on the January 29th, 2014 playtest.

In the Planetary Annihilation Build 61250, several changes were made.

  • New Model

  • Splash Damage: 150 -> 100
  • Splash Radius: 10 -> 15 m (full damage out to 5 m)
