They are constructed on the battlefield by the USA in order to hold military prisoners and gain valuable battlefield intelligence.
From the Detention Camp a commander can access the 'Intelligence' power. Using knowledge gained from inmates and the applied use of satellites, Intelligence enabled US generals to view all enemy units and positions across the battlefield.
|Intelligence||The Intelligence ability allows a commander to temporarily reveal the locations of all enemy units on the battlefield.|
In the expansion Zero Hour this power is activated from the Strategy Center.
- Originally other factions were also supposed to have their own detention camps (an example would be the GLA's cut Prison), but they were cut from the game along with the POW Trucks as the POW logic was removed.
- The Detention camp originally was able to build POW trucks, a leftover of this is the garage seen in the right side of the structure. No vehicles can be trained here at normal gameplay.
