Capture Building is an upgrade available to any general, enabling their basic infantry to capture buildings


In modern wars, generals realized that the battlefield was too dangerous for engineers to be deployed. In order to prevent unnecessary loss of life, infantry were trained to capture enemy buildings, even high-tech structures like Super Weapons. Base defenses however, cannot be captured.

With a Para Drop, Sneak Attack or Rebel Ambush a General could be able to capture buildings of the enemy (and use or sell them immediately), this is usually faster than destroying the buildings, but the soldiers become easy pickings out in the open. Patrolling or guarding units and land mines are hard counters to potential building theft.

China's Black Lotus — or Super Lotus for General Shin Fai — is an expert in taking buildings and at more than twice the speed of ordinary infantry, but are always vulnerable to anti-infantry units.
