An aircraft upgrade available from the GDI airfield to both Steel Talons and regular GDI formations: hardpoints increase the ammunition carrying capacity of Orcas and Firehawk attack jets. These additional hardpoints increase the ammo capacity of Orcas and Firehawks by 50% - with no loss in combat performance. However, the added capacity translates to more time needed to fully rearm Orcas and Firehawks after a sortie.

ZOCOM's operations in harsh Red Zones often require more durability and finesse moreso than just sheer firepower - so they eschew the traditional hardpoints upgrade in favor of ceramic aircraft armour.
