“These siege units fire shots from a distance, dealing good damage to enemy buildings. They're completely defenseless against enemy troops though, so escort them with archers and other troops.”

The Spearhead Artilleryis a level 11 standard Ranged Siege unit unlocked in the Drone Age. Its predecessor is the Advanced Artillery. It is researched in level 15 Armory.

General Information[]

  • Spearhead Artillery can do efficient damage to buildings from a distance. They attack the building that is closest to them
  • Spearhead Artillery only targets buildings, not enemy troops, making them vulnerable and defenseless

Historical Description[]

The DONAR is a unique artillery vehicle with a range over 54 km. This is thanks to its incredibly massive and accurate L52 gun. Its fully automated loading system allows it to fire faster than other artillery vehicles, and with its radio data transmission connection and electrical gun laying system, it can be both fired and driven completely with a remote control.

It is only lightly armored, but compensates by automatically detect and extinguish fires in both its power compartment and crew area.


  • Chivalry is a Level 2 Technology that increases the Range of Ranged Siege attack by 10%
  • Ballistics is a Level 3 Technology that decreases Siege troop space by 1 and increases attasck speed by 10%

Attacking Strategies[]

  • Since Spearhead Artillery are defenseless against enemy troops, use troops such as Ranged Infantry to defend them
  • Use Heavy Infantry and Heavy Cavalry to help cover the Artillery from defensive buildings

Defensive Strategies[]

  • Honored Artillery is efficient alliance troops that can help defend City Centers. Their high damage can take out Generals and other strong units such as Heavy Cavalry
  • Spearhead Artillerys can also take a large amount of infantry if they are clumped together
  • Spearhead Artillery are also ranged so they can shoot over walls against enemy troops without being attacked by melee/low ranged units such as Heavy Infantry. This makes the Spearhead Artillery one of the good choices for donated war troops for defense
  • Use the Angkor Wat to heal them as they attack enemy troops, increasing their overall life time
