The Listening Post serves as the Strategic Point Control Station of the Space Marines in Dawn of War. Like all Strategic Point Control Stations, this Building allows the player to fortify Strategic Points and Relics. Listening Posts also allows construction of other Buildings around itself as well as doubling the Requisition gathering rate from +6 to +12. However, a fully decayed Listening Post generates only +5 Requisition. Constructing a Listening Post costs the player 100 Requisition. The building features 2250 Hit Points by default before upgrades and like all artificial constructs, it has no Morale.
