The Rocket Launchpad is a circular structure that contains all necessary and important equipment to launch and land a rocket, thus allowing it to secure its launching and landing phases to avoid any damage or complete destruction to its cargo/passengers.
In Dance of Blood, the Rocket Launchpad at the centre of Totoya Island is a critical structure that must be protected from the Chinese attack for 35 minutes until Libra can safely arrive. After that, it no longer has to be protected.
In Earthrise, the player starts in control of a Rocket Launchpad, with the other ones on the map being controlled by PsiCorps. Capturing a Launchpad from Epsilon will cause three money crates to be spawned nearby. Holding at least one Launchpad is a necessary condition to end the mission in victory.
