RA1 Camouflaged Pillbox Icons

The camouflaged pillbox used extensively by the Allies was, as its name suggested, a camouflaged counterpart of the Pillbox.

Background

While more expensive to build, it could often take Soviet infantry by surprise, foiling attempts at Engineer rushes and possibly destroying light vehicles. It was also more heavily armoured than the standard Pill Box. Used in conjunction along with turrets, it could provide a formidable defense.

However, even with the element of surprise it was still not a match for tanks, as its machine gun was highly ineffective against heavier armor (especially the strong Soviet armor). Once its position was known, it was vulnerable to aircraft and long-ranged units. The Camo Pillbox was eventually discontinued and replaced with the normal pillbox—apparently, the complications involved with maintaining two different systems were not considered to be worth the extra expense. As the invasion of the United States saw extensive urban conflict, camouflaging defenses became entirely impossible and garrisoning buildings proved to be more efficient.

Like with the gap generator, enemy AI units can detect the camouflaged pillbox. It can also be targeted by airstrikes.

Legacy

These defenses were decommissioned prior to the Third World War.
