Description[edit]

The Starport is the Terran production building for air units. It requires a Factory before it can be built. It can be lifted off.

Unit Minerals Vespene Gas Supply Build Time Key
Viking 150 75 2 30 V
Medivac 100 100 2 30 D
Liberator 150 150 3 43 N
Raven 100 200 2 43 R

Usage[edit]

Initially, the Starport can only produce Vikings, Medivacs, or Liberators, one at a time -- however, like Barracks and Factories, attaching add-ons increase this capability. Attaching a Reactor allows the Starport to produce two of these units at a time while attaching a Tech Lab allows a Starport to produce Banshees, Ravens and Battlecruisers (the latter also requiring a Fusion Core).

A common technique is to start both your Starport and a Reactor on your Factory as soon as the Factory is complete. Since both take 50 seconds to complete, you can swap the Factory and Starport upon completion (resulting in a Reactored Starport) allowing you to immediately "double-pump" Medivacs or Vikings. Similarly, this technique can be used to get faster cloaked Banshees by constructing a Tech Lab on your factory.

Abilities[edit]
