My favorite strategy is building an arrow to the right. You have a defensive line that you might need to replenish, and any tanks that are too low or too high get a barrage as they drive past it. My arrow is typically high on the screen. Here's what it looks like (click to see it bigger)...
As you can see, I sometimes drop a few "satellite" turrets in the front for the tanks to get pelted by my turrets as they drive past. I expect those turrets to eventually get sacrificed.
What's your top score? Mine is 50.8 million... 50,844,521.
