The Propaganda Center is a high tier tech building of China in Generals.

Background

This building allows Chinese generals to access the most advanced Chinese weapons and tactics in the field. Its primary role is akin with Battle Lab or Tech center. A commander requires a Propaganda Center in his base of operations to access the Nuclear Missile Silo, Overlord Tank and a number of other units.

Upgrades

Available for all Chinese buildings except Speaker Towers for a cost of $500. Requires Land mine to be installed..

Game building

A relatively fragile building, the Propaganda Center requires protection at all times. Although a Speaker Tower is included in the structure, it isn't used.

Trivia

On the left side of the Propaganda Center, there is a yellow sign, which has the Chinese words "提防偷鞋" (Beware of thieves stealing shoes) written on it. This is very strange and awkward considering that a place where highly classified military information is stored can be infiltrated by regular thieves who steal shoes.
