The Cloud Piercers are where the Foehn's prime and innovative wind manipulation technologies are being developed. The Foehn staff within these towers monitor wind behavior and perform complicated calculations which allow their army to make the best use of its flow and employ the forces of nature in battle. The Piercer's data makes it possible to assess the best locations for the deployment of Spinblades, which will boost the speeds of units equipped with windspin engines.
To acquire full technology access, the Wings of Coronia need to add an Expansion to the Cloud Piercer, which becomes available after all three of Foehn's technology structures have been built.
Besides playing as one of three prerequisites before unlocking Tier 3, the Cloud Piercer provides the following support power:
|Spinblade||A Spinblade can be deployed in strategic areas across the battlefield, to significantly increase the speed of Foehn units with windspin engines, like the Minermite. Deploying a Spinblade costs $600 and takes 4:00 to recharge.|
The Cloud Piercer will also be a notable target for infiltrators to acquire Stolen Tech units that are able to match the might of even the most advanced of Foehn units. Therefore, a Foehn commander should always place walls around the Cloud Piercer to prevent such situations.
- The three small plates atop a Cloud Piercer rotates at a speed ratio of 1:2:3, where the bigger plate rotates slower.
