Appearances

In the campaign, non-Allied forces that own a Mercury Network Uplink will not get access to the Drop Control. In addition, if an Allied Air Force Command HQ with Drop Control is captured by a Epsilon faction, only the Paradrop support power is granted (Soviet Faction can granted access to Airborne and Bloodhound).

Act One

  • Drop Control debuts in Happy Birthday, used by American enemy.
  • The Drop Control is introduced as a buildable add-on in Beautiful Mind. In this mission, it requires the Tech Secret Lab located near the player's base in order to be built, instead of Mercury Network Uplink.
