Long-range Ballistic Firebomb Launcher
four close-range flamethrowers (×4)
The Flame Column is a stationary turret available to the Nod Defence class. It lobs anti-air/anti-ground firebombs into the heart of the enemy. Upgrades include close-range flamethrowers. An achievement can be earned if the player destroys several units with the flame column.
The Flame Column was seen as a cheaper alternative in an anti-infantry capacity than the Isis-class Obelisk of Light from the era of the Third Tiberium War. At the time, the Obelisk of Light's only weakness was its inability to attack air units. Furthermore, it costed more to invest and construct than the flame column. When GDI began investing in an aerial force to combat future Scrin invasions, Nod had considered abandoning their most fearsome weapon if nothing was developed to solve the Obelisk's problem.
