CNCTW Space Command Uplink Cameo

The space command uplink building appears in Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath and grants access to several support powers.

Background

The structure allows terrestrial GDI commanders to communicate with their contemporaries in the GDI space forces. It is essentially a large launch pad (and support facility) for shockwave artillery missiles, coupled with a powerful communications center that maintains an uplink with GDI space command for further strike support. With the addition of new satellites to the system, the space command uplink was able to call for an orbital strike upon a target, raining down a hail of kinetic impact rods.

In-game

It grants a commander three important aids, the first being the ability to launch shockwave artillery ballistic missiles, based on sonic emitter technology, at foes across the battlefield.

The second is the ability to call in Zone Trooper drop pods from space to land at any location. After a brief cooldown time following re-entry, three squads of veteran Zone Troopers will be at the commander's immediate disposal in the drop zone, allowing for the ultimate in surprise attacks.

The third is its large sight radius - placed near the front of the base, it can allow a commander plenty warning as to any unstealthed units approaching his or her base and thus plenty of distance to decide how to deal with it accordingly.

In Kane's Wrath it can also call down orbital strikes and supersonic air strikes. If the player is leading ZOCOM forces, then Zone Raiders will be deployed instead of Zone Troopers.


Support powers provided

Icon Support power Description
CNCTW Shockwave Artillery Cameo Shockwave Artillery Shockwave Artillery shells not only do damage to opposing units and structures, but they also unleash a crippling EMP attack. This power costs 2000 credits and has a cooldown of 3:00. The support power fires 12 shells in a circular pattern. Each shell does 400 grenade damage with a splash radius of 50 and also has a 10 second EMP timer.
CNCKW Supersonic Air Attack Cameo Supersonic air strike A beacon sends GDI Supersonic Fighters screaming in to deliver massive anti-air damage to all nearby air units. It is especially effective against large numbers of light aircraft. This power costs 2000 credits and has a cooldown of 5:00.
CNCKW Orbital Strike Cameo Orbital Strike Marked by a brilliant red laser beam, the Orbital Strike sends a barrage of metal slugs down from space to impact on ground targets. This power costs 3000 credits and has a cooldown of 7 minutes.
CNCTW Zone Trooper Drops Cameo Zone Trooper Drop Pods Three veteran Zone Trooper Squads come hurtling down from space to inflict damage on the battlefield. Their pod is somewhat vulnerable upon landing until the troopers deploy. This power costs 4500 credits and has a cooldown of 2:00. GDI only.
CNCKW Zone Raider Drop Pod Cameo Zone Raider Drop Pods Three veteran Zone Raider Squads come hurtling down from space to inflict damage on the battlefield.
