The component tower is a GDI modular base defense structure in Tiberian Sun and Firestorm. The component tower itself is just a plug into which a defensive weapon can be installed.

In-game structure[edit | edit source]

The three options for upgrading a component tower are:

  • Vulcan cannon: dual 20mm machine guns effective against infantry and light vehicles, but lack range and the penetrating power needed to damage heavier ground units
  • RPG launcher: fires explosive projectiles effective against most vehicles and infantry
  • SAM battery: fires anti-aircraft missiles at hostile aircraft

Component towers themselves can be deployed as part of a wall. Any upgrade placed upon a damaged component tower also fully repairs the tower (possibly due to coding limitations). In addition, selling a component tower that is connected to a wall damages all wall sections adjacent to the sold structure.

Component towers were decommissioned following the Firestorm Crisis in favour of combat-ready structures like in the First Tiberium War.
