Upgrades Orcas and Firehawks with additional weapon hardpoints, allowing them to carry more missiles.

CNCKW Hardpoints Cameo

An aircraft upgrade available from the GDI airfield to both Steel Talons and regular GDI formations: hardpoints increase the ammunition carrying capacity of Orcas and Firehawk attack jets. These additional hardpoints increase the ammo capacity of Orcas and Firehawks by 50% - with no loss in combat performance. However, the added capacity translates to more time needed to fully rearm Orcas and Firehawks after a sortie.

ZOCOM's operations in harsh Red Zones often require more durability and finesse moreso than just sheer firepower - so they eschew the traditional hardpoints upgrade in favor of ceramic aircraft armour.
