Bunker SC1 CineAscension1

A line of bunkers

Bunkers, sometimes referred to as "battlefield coffins",[1] are low-domed structures that may be constructed with paristeel[2] or neosteel[3] plating. They may be built almost anywhere[4] using manufacturing processes which are standard for SCVs. Once erected the armor plating makes them very difficult to take apart.[2]

The bunker typically accommodates, but is not limited to, four individuals. Weapon ports are located on all sides, with ammunition racks above them. Entry and exit is through a single hatch to the rear.[3]

Wolfe Industries sold an improved bunker firing port with a magnetic rail during the Second Great War; the rail increased the muzzle speed of fired projectiles.[5] Raynor's Raiders also developed upgrades during the war. The Shrike turret added an automated gun on the roof and was based on the zerg spore crawler. Another upgrade added an armored carapace to the exterior and was based on the ultralisk.[6]
