Тесла танк red alert

Продюсер Electronic Arts Джим Вессела, а по совместительству страстный поклонник Command & Conquer, продолжает время от времени делиться с сообществом подробностями о ходе работы над официальными ремастерами Tiberian Dawn и Red Alert.


По словам господина Весселы, работа продвигается хорошо, и ранее в этом месяце им удалось довести первую миссию ремастера Tiberian Dawn до уровня полноценной альфа-версии. Это означает, что миссию можно было полностью пройти с использованием всех ключевых геймплейных механик и с задействованием новых текстур.

The T92T [1] Tesla tank is a Soviet anti-surface tank in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge, and is only available to Russia as a country-specific unit.

Russian Tesla Tanks fire a short range Tesla Bolt that can short-circuit enemy vehicles and even arc over enemy walls.

It uses a fully tracked chassis with two small turret-mounted Tesla coils. The mobile Tesla system has less range and power against vehicles and structures than its stationary counterpart. However the lightning bolts arc over obstacles and easily eliminate infantry.

In the War of the Three Powers, a different version of the tank was created, but was not widely deployed.

Deployment history [ edit | edit source ]

In the Allied campaigns of both Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge, the Tesla tank was only seen during Operation: Chrono Storm, since the operation took place in Russia’s capital Moscow, the tank’s main production facility.

In the Soviet campaign of Red Alert 2, it did not make an appearance.

The following is based on the Soviet campaign for Yuri’s Revenge and contradicts canon sources.

In the Soviet campaign of Yuri’s Revenge, the Tesla tank is first encountered during Operation: Brain Wash, and is available for construction when the Allied base is liberated.

In-game [ edit | edit source ]

The tanks are particularly effective en masse as, although lightly armored, their attack was quite strong and had a very short reload time, meaning it can make short work of most vehicles, especially Grizzly tanks and IFVs. Like other tanks, it can also crush enemy infantry by simply running over them. They however have trouble breaking through prism towers and other heavy defenses, due to the short range of their Tesla weapon.

The Tesla tank is a country specific unit: in order to build it in skirmish, one needs to play as the Russia country. Another method of building the tank lies in capturing a Tech Secret Lab which may give the plans for this tank, allowing it to be constructed even from non-Soviet war factories. In skirmishes, crates may contain this "short circuit on wheels."

Tesla tanks are quite capable of acting as distracting units like Apocalypse tanks; they have less than half of the health as an Apocalypse tank, move faster, cheaper and more effective damage against all ground targets.

The AI usually attack with 3 Tesla tanks and 2 Rhino tanks. They prioritize defensive structures above all other targets, and will bypass all other types of enemy structures and units while any defenses remain on the battlefield. However, once they become aware of enemy units, they will leave their previously targeted building and engage them instead. Once all of the nearby enemy units are defeated, they will proceed to attack the nearest building from their current location. Note that like all tanks that prioritize defenses, Tesla tanks do not consider Tank bunkers to be a defense regardless of whether or not it contains enemy tanks.

Once all defenses are destroyed, Tesla tanks become like any other tank with no preferred target; they will attack the nearest building to them regardless of type, and will turn and attack enemy units if they become aware of any nearby.

Campaign-only in Counterstrike

The Tesla tank was an experimental vehicle developed by the Soviets in Second World War.


Essentially, it was a half-track with the ball of a Tesla coil mounted on top, which was omnidirectional. The Tesla tank was used as a long-range support unit for main battle tanks such as the heavy tank, and sometimes also as a scout, since it was relatively fast compared to other Soviet vehicles. The Tesla tank also jammed enemy radars if it got close enough to a radar dome.

The tank was reasonably fast (owing to its half-track design) and its weapon was effective against all surface targets. However, its advantages come at the price of high costs of manufacture, as well as thin armor. The Tesla weapon also had a relatively long cool-down time required to recharge the capacitors, making it vulnerable in a combat situation with several opponents.

This tank was not widely deployed and was only used on some occasions. Two versions of it have been reported to exist: the first version, essentially a prototype, was based on a Mobile Radar Jammer chassis and looked very similar to it. The second version, which was the main production model, was somewhat larger and saw more deployments. Both however performed almost identically, with the first version having less armor but more firepower than the second one.

Some important operations where Tesla tanks were present included the protection of the Sarin nerve gas facilities, and the destruction of the Allied MiG prototype. Tesla tanks were also present in Siberia to defend the nuclear production facilities. They were also used by the Soviets to destroy the Chrono tank prototypes and to defend the base near the Super tank testing grounds, among other deployments.

After the war a new version of the tank was created but it still was not widely deployed.

Game Unit

The Tesla tank only appears in the two expansion packs of Red Alert, Counterstrike and The Aftermath and the PlayStation exclusive Retaliation, which includes the two expansion packs.

In Counterstrike, it appears in both sides’ campaign, but is not normally build-able in Skirmish and multiplayer modes, as are none of the other Counterstrike-specific special units. However, it is possible to build Tesla Tanks in Skirmish in Counterstrike through a glitch: simply load a mission where the Tesla Tank exists, exit the mission and start a Skirmish match, and the existing Radar Jammer will now have the tesla weapon (you can’t have Aftermath installed).

In The Aftermath, it was made available in skirmish and in some missions in the campaign. The Tesla tank of Counterstrike uses the sprite of the Radar jammer, while in the Aftermath it its own appearance. The Tesla tank has a long range (out ranges Turrets and Pillboxes), but is vulnerable to being outnumbered. It is also incapable of responding to air attacks.

The Tesla tanks require support as it has very weak armor and can easily be destroyed by point defenses.

A good strategy to wipe out buildings quickly is to use heavy tanks as a meat shield, while Tesla tanks do the damage.

Although Tesla tanks do incredible damage and they move faster than heavy tanks, they are very vulnerable to Nuclear weapons and Anti-vehicle mines. To prevent a large amount of Tesla tanks from being destroyed, spread them along the line of fire and don’t send them at the same place.
