The Soviet Construction yard was the heart of every Soviet forward base during the Third World War and The Uprising.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Soviet construction yard was often called "Little Basil" by Soviet troops due to architectural similarities to St. Basil's Cathedral. Unlike its Allied counterpart, the Soviet construction yard was unable to build an entire structure and then deploy it as a whole. Instead, an external civilian construction team required it to build structures from the foundation up at a predetermined location. This made the structure being built vulnerable to attack during the construction process.[1]

In-game[edit | edit source]

Like the other construction yards, the Soviet construction yard is responsible for base construction, providing radar, and granting access to Top Secret Protocols. It is heavily armored, yet completely unarmed, and it is also the prime target for enemies due to its significance, so it must be protected at all cost. However, it is not completely defenseless, it can pack up into an MCV in order to prevent capture by an enemy engineer or, in an emergency, crush enemy units.

The Soviet construction yard can also build Crusher cranes, which can produce buildings just like the construction yard. This makes the loss of a construction yard less of a critical blow for Soviet commanders.
