Anti-aircraft Aparoids are stationary defense turrets utilized by the invading Aparoids, appearing in the 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th Missions of "Assault".


They look as if they have grown out of the wall, and they have roots extending from the base. Each has two laser cannons that fire in rapid succession, but it has to recharge for about five seconds to fire again. They glow orange, while the laser shots are dark green.
