|“||Holy cow! Commander, we got some kind of UFO on the scope! Either it's an alien invasion or Yuri's been watching too many TV![sic]
- General Carville when seeing a floating disc for the first time
The flying disc is simply that. It is a silver hued tapered disc equipped with hover technology that allows it to move about the battlefield. Along the outer edge of the floating disc was a laser actuator, which built charge as the beam circled the disc and then released in one blast at targets. At the center of the disc was a sphere which contained the Floating Disc's drain beam. Due to its design, it was also fully capable of flying and fighting in the near vacuum of lunar atmosphere.
The floating disc's primary use was to disable enemy bases. With its drain beam, the floating disc could drain an enemy's power, shutting off either a base defense, or the entire grid. Then other Yuri units could attack with less fear. Furthermore, a Floating Disc could drain the credits out of refineries and shunt them into Yuri's accounts. The floating disc had decent armour, but lacked speed. However, it was faster than the Soviet Kirov airship, and it can target both air and ground units. It's construction is announced to the other players. One Floating Disc can wreak havoc to an entire base, especially if the Disc shut off base power, and if the base is only equipped with static anti-air defenses.
Due to the altering of the timeline in the Post-war Crisis, the Floating Disc is now reported non-existent.
Counters[edit | edit source]
Players should not rely on static-air defenses; a good mix of static and non-static air defenses is the best.
Floating Discs are one of the most powerful Yuri units in the game, and as such it can be difficult to defend against them. Large air defense systems like multiple garrisoned Gatling Tanks in Tank Bunkers are critical for success against Floating Discs.
Deployment[edit | edit source]
In a desperate attempt to kill the Allied and Soviet leaders at London's Parliament house, Yuri first deployed the Floating Disc in Operation Trick or Treaty. Many of the Allied soldiers, most notably General Carville, were surprised at Yuri's new weapon, initially thinking it was an alien invasion. However the Allied commander quickly shot the Floating Discs as he repelled the waves of Yuri's assaults.
