AI War:Mining Golem
|This page is up to date for version 8.024 and should still be correct.|
| This golem is sent from deep space for one purpose: to consume the planet it is heading toward.
It will fire on human ships that approach it, but it emits a signal that tricks AI ships into ignoring it as harmless. It takes it quite a while to reach the planet, but as soon as it does, it causes a blast the same as if a nuclear weapon had been set off -- destroying all the resources and making the planet unable to sustain supply. It doesn't harm the ships on the planet, however, so it won't cause an AI Progress increase if it goes off on an AI Planet.
It is a living Golem; it has no broken version and cannot be repaired or controlled by humans.

How to counter
Mining Golems are relatively easy to counter as long as you can get to them in time. They are are immobile, heavily armored, and have good firepower over a long range. However their rate of fire is low (limited to massive damage to a single ship). Strong counters include anything with radar dampening or sufficient numbers. The "Ultra-Heavy" hull type, found on all golems, makes them particularly vulnerable to Bombers. Space Planes, with both radar dampening and a bonus against Ultra-Heavy hulls, are an ideal counter. Due to their high cap-DPS and low cost, Laser Gatlings also make an excellent counter.
