The deposits you have own are yours until you lose them. At the time, you can station troops in it. With the update of Special OPS, there is a rare OPS about frontier base operations, that means that you can deploy platoons from depos.
Dealing with depo thieves
If the thieves are LV 15 or less, I strongly tell you: Station Gazing truck is the best for it.
When the thieves are coinded, but still LV 15 or less, it can prevent them from coining a deposit.
If the thieves are LV 15 to 25, it is strongly to station Gazing truck with some Paladins. If you have hellfire, you can also station 1.
If those thieves are LV 25 to 30, it is strongly recommended to have stationing a mix on Gazing Truck, Flak Tank, Paladins or challengers , with some hellfires at the same time.
Preventing to be attacked on LV 30 or above in a Tiny or small depo is useless. It is suggested to fight back.
Large / Giant deposit guide:
Make those motar in, machine out. and station Elite Gazing on those Motars. It can prevent Hellfires from direct shooting to your Machine gun.
A matter on FAV
to prevent FAVs' on attacking your depo, it is recommended to statioin Laser Tank in depos, but those Laser Tank are not recommended to be sent without gazing.
