The Battery (砲台 - ホウダイ (hou-dai, lit. "gun pedestal")) is an indirect unit in Game Boy Wars 1/2/Turbo.


The Battery is the strongest indirect in Game Boy Wars 1/2/Turbo. Not only does it have the same maximum range as the Battleship, but it devastates any land or sea unit it hits as well. Unlike the Artillery, the Battery also devastates foot soldiers--although this isn't cost effective at all to begin with.

The Battery, though, is near-immobile. With only 1 Fuel, the Battery can't enter any Forests or other rough terrain, which removes the possibility of any decent defense boosts except from urban terrain; and it also needs a Supply Truck supporting it to get anywhere. Also, it can't be Loaded directly onto a Lander or Radar Transport Plane. But the transporting problem is fixed by loading the Battery onto the Supply Truck, which can be Loaded onto a Lander or Radar Transport Plane.
