The American Detention Camp provides upgrades and unlocks tier 1 units and buildings. They are constructed on the battlefield by the USA in order to hold military prisoners and gain valuable battlefield intelligence, consequently enabling US Generals to view enemy units and positions across the battlefield.
These facilities can hold over a hundred dangerous prisoners and have the personnel to interrogate dozens at any given time through questionable means. Consequently they attract a lot of criticism from the media and human rights activists (e.g. Diego Garcia and Guantanamo Bay which have received international criticism due to the lack of humane treatment towards the prisoners). Commanders who desire to build one of these structures must be willing to weather the inevitable backlash but may benefit greatly by gaining key intelligence about their opponents, access to new units as well as the possibility to research several upgrades thus gaining a valuable advantage in the battlefield.
The Detention Camp serves mainly as a tier 1 unlock building, making building it a necessary point to advance to tier 2. It allows for the purchase of several key upgrades such as Chemical Suits, Rocket Pods, and more which will prove invaluable to gain an edge whilst fighting against enemy units. It also allows production of several vehicles, aircraft and buildings such as Crusader tank, Microwave tank, etc. and provides access to the Intelligence power to view enemy visibility. However, in order to deploy this ability, Rangers or Green Berets must capture enemy units with their Flash-Bangs Grenades or CIA Intelligence must be purchased from the Strategy Center.
