Part 24: Soviet 11 - Operation: Red Revolution

Soviet 11: Operation: Red Revolution
Operation: Red Revolution

Yuri was a traitor this whole time?! Looks like Me(nt)a(lis)t's back on the menu, boys!

The heart of Mother Russia!

Location: Moscow, Soviet Union
Objective: Capture or Kill Yuri!

Briefing: Yuri has turned against us. There is only one answer for such treason.

Author's note: A truly grueling mission on Hard difficulty, constantly being attacked by Yuri's forces, including healthy mixes of apocalypse tanks, yuris, V3s, and terror drones, among others.

*Note for future me and you: I forget about two buildings in this mission so I may retread some information in the next mission's commentary. Oops!*

Name: Alexander Romanov
Aliases: None
Affiliation: Soviet
Occupation: Premier of the Glorious Soviet Union [DECEASED]
Voiced/Played by: Nicholas Worth

Premier of the Soviet Union. Has a pet turtle named Harry; no dove though. A rather jovial fellow. Either has a medical condition, or is affected by Yuri by some fashion. Allegedly murdered by General Vladimir. Murdered by Yuri. Sends a tape to Zofia so that she may relay it to the Commander.

Nuclear Reactor
ARMOR: Concrete
COST: 1000
PURPOSE: Provides Power

The Soviets have solved the problem of needing additional Tesla Reactors by developing the Nuclear Reactor. This large building puts out the equivalent of many Tesla Reactors, supplying the Soviet commander with virtually all of the power he will ever need. The destruction of a Nuclear Reactor causes a large nuclear explosion, and creates fallout that will kill infantry and lightly-armoured vehicles.

Author's Note: The ultimate power generating structure, the Nuclear Reactor can easily supply all your needs. While they are large and slightly vulnerable, they are easy to build and removes any real limitation on accumulating Tesla Coils, outside of cost.

Kirov Airship
RANGE: Short
ARMOR: Light
WEAPON: Blimp Bombs
COST: 2000

These huge Soviet zeppelins are a true force to contend with in the air. Able to withstand tremendous amounts of damage, a Kirov attacks with massive payloads of heavy bombs. These can devastate an area. Slow speed is the main weakness of this unit.

Author's Note: Large and in charge, the Kirov Airship can shake off any but the most concentrated of AA defenses. Their durability makes up for their lethargic movement. Anything caught under their sights is as good as dead.


Faster than Par Time: "Already your name is known to school children as the greatest general the world has ever known."

Slower than Par Time: "Yuri's defenses were weak and feeble. Your tank divisions swept him aside as you have swept aside so many others."
