Think of the Anchor as a Laser Defense Tower in the orbital layer that can shoot at Orbital Units and Ground Units.

History

The Anchor was added in Build 59549. At release it did not have a unique model and used the Advanced Radar Satellite model.

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

  • New Model
  • Metal Cost: 1200 -> 2400
  • Acceleration: 2 -> 10 m/s/s
  • Brake Rate: 2 -> 10 m/s/s
  • Turn Speed: 90 -> 10 deg/s
  • Sight Range – Orbital: 250 -> 280 m
  • Damage: 400 -> 15
  • Rate of Fire: 2 -> 5 shots per second
  • Now built by Orbital Fabber

The Anchor was repurposed to be able to shoot at ground units in addition to orbital units in the build 65588.

In the 67342 Build the build cost was decreased from 4,000 metal to 3,600 metal.
