Grants a bonus

Crates in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge look like ordinary wooden cube-shaped boxes. In campaigns, they can be found quite often - directly placed on the ground, through destroying a Pick-up truck, accomplishing a mission objective, or occasionally through capturing an enemy refinery. In skirmish and multiplayer modes, crates can also randomly be found floating on water. These can be picked up even with submerged units.

When picked up, a symbol will appear for a few seconds to indicate what is inside the crate.

Sometimes, when Veterancy is found inside a crate, even units which do not have the ability to advance, can advance (such as Yuri Prime or the Aircraft Carrier). Also, if a veterancy crate is picked up next to an Air Force Command, any Harriers or Black Eagles at the Air Force Command will be affected. Veterancy crates affect any nearby unit when collected in a 3x3 area around the crate, friend or foe.
