The Tech Military Docks is a neutral structure that causes the owner's ships and aquatic animals to be produced as veterans. Although it provides benefits to ships, the Tech Military Docks is not placed on water, allowing Engineers to capture it.
Tech Military Docks provide additional equipment for your ships and other aquatic units before they are released into the waters. Any naval units constructed with this building under your control will start as a veteran. This building is not placed on water.
In contrast to other similar tech buildings like the Tech Heavy Machinery, there is no other way for naval units to gain experience besides the conventional way (killing enemies), making the Tech Military Docks a valuable asset to acquire when building naval units.
