Georgi Kukov (Russian: Георгий Куков) is a Soviet military officer in Red Alert 1.

Background[edit | edit source]

Kukov is a career officer, firmly believing in the might of the Soviet army and his tactical ingenuity.

Character development[edit | edit source]

Kukov and his ploys play a major role in the Soviet campaign of Red Alert 1. He is absent from the Allied campaign wholesale.

He is first met on the German/Polish border, where he briefs the player character on his mission. As the Germans are overwhelmed by the Soviet assault, Kukov is promoted to general. Soon, he becomes the commander of the Red Army after Marshall Gradenko is assassinated and becomes Josef Stalin's main advisor.

When the commander who was ordered to capture the Allied Chronosphere in Leich fails, Kukov blames him. However, Nadia counters by stating Kukov's intelligence was the true reason the mission failed. The General had apparently overlooked another Allied base and forgot to inform the commander of said base. Stalin is furious at this oversight and strangles Kukov, breaking his neck in the process.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Georgi Kukov appears in Red Alert 1.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Kukov might have been based on the real life Georgi Zhukov, a decorated Soviet General (and later Marshal) of the Second World War.
