Description

The Razor is a hardy anti-air turret. Its high hit points and 4x armour bonus when closed makes it very hard for the enemy to dislodge.

Tactics and Strategy

As far as fixed AA defenses are concerned, its often a good idea to start with razors and escalate to bigger defenses if needed. Razor has an excellent combination of low cost, high coverage and decent damage output, and will often be the only AA defense you will need to protect an area against light aerial harassment, specially if the enemy is attacking you with gunships rather than planes.

Razors are also extremely durable for their cost, specially when closed. As a result, they can also be used as a decoy against enemy artillery: build a razor in front of your other things, and enemy artillery relying on radar for their targeting will waste their shots against it.
