"Your buildings are under attack!"
The M7 Priest is the light artillery of the Allied Army, equipped with light armor and long ranged weaponry, capable of delivering great devastation from a great distance. The Priest is very effective against infantry, buildings and base defenses.
This American-made self-propelled artillery piece was designated the M7, but the British dubbed because the ring surrounding its .50-caliber machine gun resembled a pulpit (and also because it replaced the Bishop).
- Pros: Unlike tanks, the Priest can be ordered to bombard a specific spot-and it doesn't need to have line of sight to do it. It has the longest range of any Tech Level 1 or 2 vehicle in the Allied arsenal.
- Cons: Because of its arcing trajectory, the Priest is vulnerable to fast-moving tanks: the target could have already moved by the time the Priest's shell reaches its destination.
- Bottom Line: Great for demolishing buildings or raining fire on a particular spot, but it doesn't deliver quite the "oomph" you'd like when hitting armored vehicles. You'll want to keep tanks like the Sherman or Pershing around it for protection as it does its work.
