Artillery, in terms of military strategy and terminology, were large weapon emplacements designed to attack large often stationary targets. Artillery units,such as large cannons or mortars are often placed behind other units which defend the otherwise vulnerable cannon units. Due to their size and targeting capabilities, artillery units were only semimobile, although these gun emplacements could be moved, they were designed to fire from a fixed stationary position.
Shield generators were commonly used to defend these cannons. The majority of artillery weapon systems were effective against buildings like factories and command centers or could even be used against starships that landed on planets.
