StarCraft® II

The Crucio is the Dominion’s replacement for the popular but aging Arclite Siege Tank. Originally designed to be a defensive security cannon, the Arclite utilized a two-stage configuration: a mobile Tank Mode and a static, long-range Siege Mode. The inherent flexibility of this model was a great success. The new Crucio has been designed for increased survivability, with an enlarged, reinforced turret and hull. The turret layout also features an upgraded Tank-Mode armament package, allowing the Crucio to defend itself more successfully in open battlefields. The Crucio is costlier than its predecessor, but its increased versatility justifies the additional expense.

Driver’s Handbook

  • Armored unit that can attack ground targets.
  • Its mobile cannon is most effective against other armored units and structures.
  • Provides devastating artillery strikes from long range when deployed in Siege Mode, but it cannot move.
  • Excellent for base defense, especially if deployed behind a choke point or in elevated positions.
  • Placement is crucial to use them effectively.
  • Needs a spotter to achieve maximum firing range.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Launch Banshees to neutralize them.
  • Build a few Ravens and deploy Auto-Turrets close to the enemy.
  • Use Medivacs to drop Marauders and Thors right on top of them. Avoid frontal land assaults.
Zerg VS
  • Spawn Mutalisks and use them to eliminate the Siege Tank threat.
  • Research Tunneling Claws to move your Roaches undetected towards the tanks. Once you are right under them, send Zerglings in to draw their fire and then strike.
Protoss VS
  • Create a few Immortals; their Hardened Shields reduce the damage of each Shock Cannon blast to 10.
  • Construct Phoenixes and cast Graviton Beam on the tanks.
  • Train a large force of Zealots and research charge. Be sure to attack from different directions, and to click on the tanks instead of using the attack-move command.
