Flak Vests- For $7,500 the Commandos can be replaced with Special Forces.
- The Defense HQ is based on the Pentagon, the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense; with the notable difference of the Defense HQ having 6 sides instead of 5, making it a hexagon. This is acknowledged in the building description.
- In the whole game, you can only get 5 Commando squads: One from the Palace, one from here, and three Allied Commandos (which you get from an Alliance with the US.)
