The Drop Zone (formerly called the Supply Drop) is one of the top buildings you can have throughout the game. It can acquire supplies in a selection of different types of drops, and after waiting a varying amount of time, you get supplies which can be used to repair units and sell to liberated cities to earn large amounts of cash.
It costs $100 to buy one. It also takes 1 energy to take supplies from a supply drop.
Many people use the drop zones as a cheap and effective defense. Costing the sme amount as the minefield, and havind the sme amout of health (1), they can be used to block enemy movements and order supplies. However, if they are destroyed whilst you are waiting for supplies, you lose your supplies and your money.
It is best to defend your drop zones well as the enemy drop zone will most likely deploy 3-5 infantry units in the area, threatining your supply line.
