A multi-story tower ideal for lookout stations.

The Watchtower is a tall building shell that has 4 floors including the roof and can be equipped with both Turrets and Harpoon Turrets on the roof. It is commonly used for base defence due to the large height bonus it provides to turrets.

Players can construct this building after researching Large Building Shells. Not that it matters in game, but the Watchtower has the highest building condition of all the Building types. It would have made perfect sense had engines of war been introduced to Kenshi.
