Shock Artillery




Strength: Medium
Armour: Weak
Speed: Slow
Cost: 1000


The Nod Shock Artillery is the next generation artillery unit for Nod. Switching from the traditional shell style to a more advanced shock weapon based shell, the differance is this weapon is energy based and is much more damaging and lethal to infantry however has a reduced blast radius. The weakness of this unit is ; it's slow, weakly armoured and can only fire long distances making it vulnerable for units which get close enough.

So... it hits the target with full kinetic force, releasing it upon the target (achieving damage to the target, proportional to long exposure to disruptor wave weapon) rather than using an explosive contents of the shell?

Beh, physics.

We need more information behind the units. Anyone minds to write up and submit some?

It was our original idea to write down how everything works in the TO universe. I guess I could have a go at making some nice descriptions. I'm the one writing the TO story, so why not? Smile

So, this is a railgun? By firing at higher speeds (and vaporizing the target), the need for explosive shells is made obsolete, thus increasing safety for the crew by not having to worry about explosions and other mishaps?

No, it's not a railgun. It uses energy-based ammunition.

"Energy-based"= a ballistic blob of energy? #Tongue

Looks decent, but I'd prefer a tad brighter remap.

The Remap is perfect ingame.
What you see there, in terms of remap, is the Voxel Editor's unique contribution to modding.

Uh, people? "Energy based weapon" is completely useless in terms of physics... :/

Something can have kinetic energy or potential energy (chemical energy, whatever). Due to E=mc^2, if I throw you a baseball, it actually gets a little heavier the moment I throw it, because the kinetic energy translates to an increase in mass. If I throw a rock at you, the rock is a weapon and it is "energy based" because the kinetic energy of the projectile itself is used to damage your forehead and give you a concussion. A grenade or other conventional explosive could rely on very fast exothermic (energy-releasing) reaction taking place inside the shell casing as soon as the fuse triggers it: the explosion aka "BOOOOM". The energy it releases comes in different flavours: a pressure wave (kinetic energy), heat (thermal energy) and shrapnel with high velocities (kinetic energy). Everything is energy based, everything from watching a circus performance to doing your girlfriend is energy based... #Tongue

Like I said, I'll think of something myself... Laughing

Despite the lack of seriousness... rthis is a great comment. Incorporate it into a storyline.
