  • Because of the 1,250 HP, the Ghost Academy is able to withstand several head-on nukes.
  • It's the terran building which gains the most hitpoints per build time.
  • When researching, several lights on the exterior of the building begins to flash, and the missile tube in the center emits a jet-flame in the color of the player.
