The Soviets had failed to capture the Chronosphere in Switzerland, but occupied the country in the process and captured Albert Einstein. Einstein's execution was publicly announced, and before he could be shot by a firing squad, the Allies teleported Einstein to safety using another Chronosphere. The Soviets had previously equipped Einstein's pocket watch with a transmitter. The transmitter pointed to the location of the second Chronosphere being in either Spain (RA Universe) or Portugal. Stalin, obsessed with capturing the Allied superweapon, ordered the commander to capture the Chronosphere. Kukov warned the commander that the Chronosphere was booby-trapped, and that three radar centers had to be taken out before it could be captured safety.
Although the Soviet commander captured the Chronosphere, the Allies detonated it. It turned out that there was a fourth control center in the area that Kukov did not inform the commander of before his departure. Enraged, Stalin snapped Kukov's neck and immediately ordered the commander to invade England and destroy the last Allied headquarters, despite Nadia's warnings that the Soviet army was not adequately prepared for an invasion.
In the original DOS and Windows releases of Command & Conquer: Red Alert, is not possible to capture the Chronosphere without prompting its detonation. However, the mission can be successfully completed by destroying all Allied forces with the exception of the Chronosphere. This bug was fixed for the PlayStation version of the game, allowing the player to capture the Chronosphere as intended. In the remastered version, this bug is fixed as well.
