The Fortification is the most basic defense structure of the ECA.
An hour worth of digging, a few dozen sandbags, razor wire and a plank roof combine into the ECA's most basic defensive structure. The Fortification is a makeshift emplacement that provides up to three infantrymen with a sufficient amount of cover and clear lines of fire in all directions. In order to provide additional healing support for the surrounding soldiers, a stockpile of medical equipment can be requisitioned.
It should be noted however that the structure initially lacks any sort of protection against toxins, flamethrowers, thermobarics and other dedicated anti-garrison weapons.
Each Fortification can be manually upgraded with one of four distinct add-ons, making it a highly modular defensive building.
Behind the scenes
- Prior to 1.87 the Fortification can be upgraded to Ammunition Stockpile which boosts nearby defenses' firepower and firing rate but can no longer be garrisoned and explodes when destroyed. It was superseded by the Munitions Bunker.
