Full damage will be inflicted only if the target body is struck completely by the rocket.

Automated defense buildings obtain Veterancy by killing Infantry and destroying Vehicles.

Function

SAM Sites are employed to defend against aerial vehicles, and have lower health and no interior or Master Control Terminal.

The SAM Site automatically attacks enemy aerial vehicles by firing surface-to-air missiles with homing capabilities. Each missile deals 50 damage, with 2 missiles being fired at a time. The SAM Site does not deactivate upon destruction of the Power Plant.

Strategy

Counters

As one of the main effective defenses against aerial vehicles, destroying these early allow aerial vehicles to harass the enemy base more freely and remain in the enemy base much longer upon attack. Players can also evade incoming missiles if they move their aerial vehicles fast enough, considering that the homing rockets will not have enough time to turn around.
