For the structure of the same name in the Kane's Wrath Global Conquest mode, see Propaganda center (Kane's Wrath).

The Propaganda Center is a high-tier tech building of China during the War against the GLA.


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.

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.

Upgrades available

  • 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.
    • This can also be an in-game joke targeted against GLA workers, who are known to always ask for shoes.
  • Despite having a garage of sorts, no vehicles can be trained at the propaganda centers.
