It is very powerful.It's invisible even when shooting, detects all types of stealth units and brings too much damage, even as a super unit. Normally, it should cost 6500$-7000$, but I believe that gaining rank 5 with Prince Kassad is harder than with other generals, so 5500$-6000$ would be fine.

They could be replaced with bararge balloons, which look more like mines, not like an one-use AA cannon
