AI War:Artillery Golem
|This page was last updated for game version 5.051|
| Fires extremely, extremely powerful artillery shots over long ranges. Is very slow, and very fragile, though. Great for taking out very heavily defended targets.|
Golems are ancient ships lying broken around the galaxy. Capture the system they reside in to allow your forces to repair them and add these powerful ships to your fleet.
The golems constructed by the Golemite AI Type have 1/2 the health of the original, broken golems that humans can repair.

How to use in your fleet
Perhaps the easiest golem to use effectively: kill big stuff. Eyes, fortresses, forcefields, and big enemy ships (excluding hunter-killers) all fall before it. It is also an easy way to kill wormhole guard posts when you want to.
Also one of the few viable ways to kill astro trains.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
Keep your big stuff away/under forcefields of some kind. Goes double for irreplaceables.
The best counter is to send fleetships only against it.
Standard golem counters apply (artillery golem, spirecraft rams/penetrators/implosion).
