AI War:Spirecraft Siege Tower
|This page is up to date for version 8.024 and should still be correct.|
| This spirecraft is basically built around a large plasma siege cannon. It is excellent against starships, guard posts, guardians, fortresses, forcefields, most turrets, and other large ships like golems or other spirecraft. When the plasma projectile explodes, it also damages several nearby units for reduced damage.|
Basically a significantly amped-up version of Plasma Siege Starship.

How to use in your fleet
Although non-renewable, Spirecraft Siege Starships vastly surpass their more-common counterpart in almost every aspect. They are very durable and fire devastating shots, making them ideal against "Guard Post + Forcefield" combos, and taking down forcefields while cleaning up the underlying ships. They even have a larger ship cap than Plasma Siege Starships.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
Along with Spirecraft Translocators and Spirecraft Shield Bearers, Spirecraft Siege Towers are one of the AI's favorite options for exogalactic strikeforces. Its relatively low speed and firing rate, comparing to Spirecraft Translocators, makes them less deadly in homeworld defense, but still they are quite formidable.
