    It depends on what you want to defend. Absorption is best on a Hunter or Rail to defend against Heralds or Jugs. Fusion is good on a turret that you know will hit uniques, such as the Heavy Turrets. Viral is good on high damage/quick firing turrets, such as the Avalanche turret, to defend against units like the Titan or SS.

    Viral is generally not useful in most high-level bases.  If you have advanced defenders like technicals or phalanx, most people aren't going to be sending a Titan or Sandstorm at your base because they get eaten up in seconds anyway.  

    Absorption seems helpful at max level on a high-health platform.  Make sure you use a Reinforced or Armored platform type -- definitely not floating.  In general though, they still won't last very long against a juggernaut or herald. 

    Fusions are good -- anything that deals extra damage is very useful. Be aware that it won't help Railguns against units with capped damage like a lot of Corpus units -- Phalanx specifically.  

    I added Fusion lvl 1 to my Heavy Turrets already, and once my absorb turrets are at level 5 I plan to add them to each heavy turret as well.

    All 3 are good on hunters as that helps against fury and herald attacks

    The 2 that don't affect drones are good on railguns.

    Overall the blue one is best because a good defensive platoon can stop all attacks even without turret support so you just need to let your heavy turrets survive to get damage out if your toon fails you.

    Absorption does cause the Jug to need 2 shots to kill it, but if the attacker uses the AoE to hit the Rail, I can agree it wouldn't be helpful.
