- Granger on destroying a war factory

War factories were structures assembled on the battlefield by the China and used to manufacture a large array of tanks and other vehicles (in fact, all of the combat ground units used by those factions).

Background[edit | edit source]

China uses war factories to produce its legion of vehicles. These buildings are a common sight on the battlefield, often constructed in large numbers where sometimes its possible to see entire tank divisions come out of them in seemingly endless amounts. From the MBT Battlemaster to the devastating Nuke Cannon, all Chinese combat vehicles are produced here.

Units produced[edit | edit source]

Build your war factories, general. They still will not produce tanks capable of stopping mine.
