Artillery emplacement extremely effective against stationary targets. Must barrage to attack.

The Obice Da 210/22 Artillery Emplacement is a Wehrmacht artillery structure. In skirmishes, it is only available exclusively as a construction option with Italian Coastal Battlegroup (note: This Battlegroup requires either purchase of the Hammer & Shield DLC pack, or unlock via Merit).

The Obice is a late-game unlock, requiring a hefty amount of CP in order to unlock in its Battlegroup tree. Once unlocked, the and gain the ability to construct this artillery emplacement in friendly territory outside the HQ territory.

The Obice is classified as heavy artillery and as expected, its artillery bombardment is devastating, with higher area of effect radius and damage compared to most artillery. This makes it very effective against any stationary target, but especially against infantry and structures/garrisons. Its shells also create light cover in the form of craters as they impact the ground.

As a downside, this artillery piece has a longer cooldown on barrages and comes with a hefty cost to construct.

Like other heavier artillery pieces, it does not have an auto-attack or attack ground feature, and thus relies on its barrage ability to fire off artillery rounds. As such, it cannot contribute much when its barrage is on cooldown.

At veterancy level 1 it gains the Steady Supply passive ability, allowing it to fire a couple additional rounds during its barrages when near a bunker.

  • High-Explosive Barrage: Active ability. Orders the unit to fire off an artillery barrage at the target location. The Obice has a massive maximum range, but also a large minimum range to cast. As with most heavy artillery, its barrages can be devastating due to much greater area of effect radius and damage compared to most artillery, though at a slower rate of fire and much higher cooldown. Effective against all targets, but especially so against infantry and structures/garrisons. Creates light cover in the form of craters when impacting the ground.

BL 5.5-Inch Howitzer, Obice 210, and M2A1 105mm Howitzer 

Howitzer emplacements saw minimal use due to their low durability, particularly in artillery duels against mobile artillery. We are partially reverting the health nerf to allow emplaced howitzers to better survive counter-barrage fire from on-map artillery and give players more time to react if they are being raided.   

  • Health increased 480 to 600
