Prepping blueprints for expansion...
Supply dock is a stub and needs your help. You can help by expanding it.
Please refer to the talk page for further discussion.
It provides all the necessary supplies to support generals' military operations. By default, a supply dock contains $30,000.
The supply dock acts like the Tiberium field in the Tiberium universe and the Ore Node in the Red Alert universe. It is the most common way for generals to gain funds. In most cases, there are two such docks near every spawn point in skirmish games. Generals need to send their Chinooks, Chinese supply trucks or Workers to the structure, and then they will automatically collect supplies and return to the Supply Center or Supply Stashes to drop them off. These structures can be valuable targets for all commanders and it is not uncommon to see them surrounded by defences like Gatling Cannons.
Like Ore Nodes, they are indestructible, but unlike the latter, once they are depleted they can't provide anymore funds, therefore it is suggested that generals should quickly switch their economy to hacking, criminal fundraising activities, dropping, petroleum, or scavenging, to get access to unlimited funds from off-battlefield sources.
- The supply docks were supposed to be able to be damaged. They all have proper models for the damaged states, and still have coding for healing themselves after a while. This would have also caused frustration if player supply dock was destroyed by the enemy and the player was left with no supplies.
- If the player fired at the Dock, however, the Dock will appear damaged visually, but neither will it be destroyed, nor would the supplies be damaged. The dock can be repaired so that it looks intact once again, but no life bar will be shown.
