Which units and or turrets are the best defense against the Herald? Do they hit Airborne platforms?

    The Herald can destroy airborne platforms in 2 different ways.
    1. Splash damage from the bombs.
    2. Using the AA Weapon Kit tech which also makes the Herald able to target airborne targets.
    Finally, to answer your second question. The most effective turret against the Herald is the Hunter Missile turret. If you link the Hunter Missile turret to a fusion turret which increases the damage against Herald by 300%.

    Ah yes, I heard Rocket Man Technicals was popular for dropping the Herald. I expect spawn trapping the Herald when it gets deployed with those would solve the issue of that unit pretty quickly lol.

    The problem at this state of the game is that spawn trapping isn't as powerful of a choice for taking down a unit like the Herald anymore. I would probably support it with the Darkstorm to effectively eliminate nearly all of the range for the Technicals.

    Do Landmines work against the Darkstorm? If so, I bet they could probably help eliminate that threat.

    The Darkstorm is highly resistant to land mine damage like with the Juggernaut and War Rig. I think kixeye has learned from previous experiences with unique units and land mines that unique units should have a higher mine resistant than the Elite Legion.

    Seeker w/Fusion turrets attached..
    Seekers cannot be linked to Fusion turrets at this sate of the game. The closest to a Seeker linked with a Fusion turret is a Hunter Missile turret linked with a Fusion turret.

    that herald is a totally unfair weapon - my base is pretty well defended and I cannot seem to knock 1 down.
