The turret was a Nod anti-tank structure used during the First Tiberium War.
It was a 105 mm AP cannon mounted on a concrete pedestal with a 360 degree fire zone, designed to compensate GDI's armour advantage.
Nod switched to the more general purpose laser turret by the Second Tiberium War.
The turret is Nod's ground defense structure although it is biased toward the anti-vehicle role. It may operate without power.
