Provides extra vehicles for free
Apparently abandoned Reinforcement Pads were captured by commanders as quickly as possible, and often squabbled over. By capturing these facilities (using infantry equipped with the Capture Building upgrade), commanders could periodically receive one of their basic vehicle types by air. The type of vehicle dropped would be the same on each occasion and was typically a tank, with some variation for more specialised generals. While the delay between drops meant that the number of vehicles able to be delivered over a period of time did not appear to be threatening, these free units could quickly mount up enough to become a nuisance (however, they can defend the said reinforcement pad). Hence, enemy commanders would do their best to capture or simply destroy these structures (they were relatively fragile).
The list of the different vehicles dropped for each side is as follows:
- USA - Crusader Tank
- China - Battlemaster Tank
- GLA - Scorpion Tank
