You destroyed my command center. I'm impressed general. Few could survive this long. - Kwai
The command center was needed to organize data, initiate advanced tactics and authorize the production of most units and structures. Generals Powers were also utilized from the command center to get special and advanced weapons.
The USA Command Center came with a built-in radar and could build Construction Dozers. A Spy Satellite could be accessed periodically via the US Command Center every 1 minute.
China's Command Center also built Construction Dozers and could be upgraded with a radar.
The GLA Command Center trained Workers and like all GLA buildings would leave behind a GLA Hole that could rebuild the Center if destroyed. GLA generals could fortify the building against enemy attacks with Fortified Structures upgrade, while Prince Kassad could also stealth the building with Camo-Netting as he learned to do with all GLA buildings. A Fake Command Center could also be built instead of a real one.
Being mostly useless after the initial dozers and workers were constructed, the Command Center was often sold for a cash boost after initial construction had been completed. This did, however, make the USA and China's dozers irreplaceable (at least until a Command Center was rebuilt later), putting great emphasis on their destruction and protection and also took away radar if playing as USA or China (the GLA could build a radar van hence they could keep their radar). This also made the Generals Powers unusable.

The processes are aborted if the plane has been destroyed before the bomb could be dropped.
The Leaflet Drop is dropped by plane, and will spread propaganda leaflets over nearby targets. Any units will cease to fight while they take their time to consider the message delivered.
When deployed, the Spectre Gunship will strafe the area for a given amount of time, bombarding the target with chainguns and its on-board howitzer.

In the final game, the Command Centers of the individual generals are only differentiated by a symbol printed on the ground. However, every general was supposed to get a totally new Command Center specifically designed for that general. It was probably cut due to time constraints, but the normal models are all in the game and can be viewed with a model viewer.
Tank General's Command Center is the only one that's fully absent. Maybe they never got around to finishing him. Note also that the two other Chinese Command Centers have a green roof, whereas the normal Command Center has a brown roof.
The American Command Center has an unused animation which shows the radar dish building up, like when the player purchased the radar upgrade. This is unused because America starts with radar at all times. However, the players may have been required to purchase the radar upgrade at some point in game development. Note also that in the Worldbuilder, the American Command Center appears without the radar dish, even though this is never seen in the game.
