Who cares about Gatling guns? This will shred those silly conscripts just fine...

Does this structure have any abilities, or was the bits about binoculars and spying just lore fluff? Either way, I approve.

The description isn't lying at all. It does get those abilities, don't worry you'll get to see them in action on our screenshots for this week!

By the way, will it happen to use the C&C 'chainsaw' sound effect for the tower machine gun?
It would be hilarious.

Please tell me that the turtler-oriented general will get something akin to GDI Adv. Guard Tower instead of this.

Anyways, simple and effective defence. Me likey :)

Posted by the hundreds along the eastern borders of Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria and Italy, these Guard Towers serve many important functions and form an integral part in the ECA's multi-layered border blockade. Thanks to the sophisticated scanner systems and high-powered searchlights installed on these towers, the European border guards can easily detect covert infiltrators. Alternatively, a pair of binoculars allows the operator to spy far into unknown territory. Perhaps the most controversial piece of equipment however is the German-made MG3 machine gun, essentially a copy of the infamous WW2-era MG42, that has been modified to accept standard NATO 7.62mm ammunition and fire at a 'mere' rate of 1300 rounds per minute as opposed to the original 1500. Even though there hasn't been a single reported casualty at the border, these fearsome weapons have been used to deter many border breachers that tried to bypass the checkpoints from the outside and the occasional group of fringe activists on the inside that refused to understand the necessity of these measures.
