Excellent observations and questions.
Re-supply depots *CAN* be destroyed and captured by the enemy. In fact,
in the last battle, the Tyng Regime ran out of paintballs at their
home-base, captured the Tri-Pact supply depot and reloaded the T34. To
destroy a supply depot, an armed vehicle need only hit it once.
As teams increase in size, the logistics of supplying vehicles around
the battlefield will become a critical issue and I expect we'll see more
supply vehicles and people devoted to operating them accordingly.
One nice thing about supply vehicles, infantry and artillery is that a
battler can loan them out to a child or anyone who wants to play along
but who otherwise isn't able to build a complete armored vehicle. It's
a great way to get more people involved in the battle without investing
too much effort or money. As such, Tri-Pact currently has plans to have
a couple of artillery pieces and supply vehicles fully operational by
