Advanced guard tower (AGT) is a GDI defensive structure in Tiberian Dawn.

Background[edit | edit source]

The big brother of the basic guard tower, the AGT boasts a fully armored metal structure with an enclosed viewing platform, an array of communication antennas, and a supply of Tomahawk guided missiles capable of taking out both air and ground targets with ease.

Game building[edit | edit source]

The guard tower is GDI's answer to the Obelisk. It fires a pair of missiles per salvo, which have limited effectiveness against heavy vehicles, but are extremely deadly against light ones, infantry, and even aircraft. It's also very durable, making it a very effective area denial tool. Coupled with repairs and some support, it can stave off all but the heaviest of assaults.

For this reason, the AI with a Temple of Nod will prioritize the AGT for a nuclear strike over all other targets. The player can exploit this by building an AGT away from the base, so that the nukes fall away from critical targets. Sandbags allow for a cheap extension of the build radius.
