Uprising: Join or Die Windows The grey area is some sort of toxic sand and will damage your Wraith. You can avoid that by using the bridge, but you will have to destroy the turret guarding it first.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows You can place up to 3 turrets in a citadel perimeter. Each can be either a SAM turret (anti-aircraft, especially bombers) or a laser turret (anti-ground units mainly).
