The Sliptack Mobile Anti-Missile is an Illuminate hover unit. It is also a defense unit. It uses a rapid fire beam to shoot down incoming tactical missiles.


  • The Sliptack shares the same basic issue as the Sharp Shooter in that it is a one trick pony. It can only shoot down missiles and not defend itself in any other way.
  • Tactical missiles are normally deployed to target your structures and not your mobile armies, therefore there is little reason to send these out with the rest of your army and should stay defending your base, particularly against the Mastadon Cruiser
  • Unlike the Sharp Shooter however, the Sliptack hovers and has access to the Teleport upgrade, allowing swift deployment to wherever it is needed.
  • The Sliptack research is a dead-end research and it is not advised you unlock this unit unless there is a clear and present need for it.
