Tactical Analysis Edit
Stand watch: The only Atomic Kingdom defense that has no real capability to actually harm the enemy, the Watchtower is able to instead create a massive sight range for all Atomic Kingdom defenses. This is valuable to the Kingdom, as the sight range for the majority of their weapons is incredibly low.
Voyeuristic: Since it has no weapons, the watchtower is only good for support in the defense of an Atomic Kingdom base. Weakly armored and manned only by a single clone, the watchtower is more valuable to be backed up either with heavy defenses, or heavy numbers of units.
The Kingdom is, unsurprisingly, obsessed with walling themselves in away from the world. Unfortunately for them, this has the effect of sealing off the world to the point where you can't find threat coming for you. So the latest question for the Kingdom's engineers was how to watch for oncoming threats.
It was actually not one of the more contentious discussions on the Kingdom's military strategy. In fact, it was resolved relatively quickly compared to other issues. The problem was always implementation. At first they tried using hordes of quickly grown clones to send out in front of the bases with radios. If a clone went silent, then the clone had clearly been killed. Unfortunately, these clones were often killed by the Kingdom's weapons as often as the enemy, so back to the drawing board. They tried to create a specific type of camera-mounted wall segment, capable of viewing everything in front of it. That was unworkable because in uneven terrain the cameras could see little above even a small hill. So finally the Kingdom tried to just use a simple watchtower set above their masses of walls, and they struck a winner. From that point on, the Kingdom set up as many watchtowers as needed, meaning that none can pass where they don't wish.
