General

The Tachyon Beam Turret is the base varient of the Thermal Beam, common in medium-level bases due to its firepower.

It fires a sustained golden beam at its target, similar to the ship version.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Tachyon Beam Turrets are very potent against blitz attacks. They deal a tremendous amount of damage that cannot be avoided at all, melting through shields and armor alike.

Equipping Focused Apertures can significantly extend their range to protect against blitz fleets on the other side of your base. Conversely, Ion Rechargers are almost useless since many blitz fleets at this level use heavy armor instead of shields.

Disadvantages

Tachyon Beam Turrets have short range making them useless against sniper fleets even with Focused Apertures V.

As a beam weapon, they cannot defend your base from squadrons due to their charge time.
