Deployment of 2 Heroic Light infantry and 4 Heroic Disc throwers anywhere on the battlefield.

The drop pod control plug was a GDI module for the upgrade center that entered service during the Firestorm Crisis. It gave field commanders tactical control over the deployment of drop pod infantry.

In-game[edit | edit source]

It allows deployment of 2 Heroic light infantrymen and 4 Heroic disc thrower anywhere on the battlefield. They will be given an initial move order on impact, until the commander issues other orders.

However, since the upgrade center can only have a maximum of 2 plugins, another upgrade center must be constructed in order for all plugins to be available.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

By the Third Tiberium War, control of drop pod deployment was handled in the space command uplink.
