Base expansion





The outpost is the structure created by the Soviet Sputnik expansion vehicle. The building contain standard control device for (and) a build-in construction apparatus. It provides ground control for Soviet buildings and expansion area for construction. The Outpost takes very little time to set up from a Sputnik compared to the Prospector. Its radius is smaller than the Command Hub's ground control though. The building cannot perform construction work (cannot build any other building) by itself without supplies and assistance from a construction yard or grinder. This is due to the Sputnik's design which is excluding any supply capacity for its mobility and price.

Outpost is useful for base expansion and defence in remote areas. Deploying outpost with grinder will provide a good service station for any friendly mechanical unit. It may also be constructed to capture and defend ore nodes. Its portability is better than Allied's outpost (deployed faster and cheaper) and distantly comparable with with Imperial nanocores. Opposing commanders will usually destroy it, as it only brings small value, other than expanded construction area.
