The Tesla reactor is the Soviet basic power supplying structure in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge.

Background[edit | edit source]

It was developed based on theoretical and practical design specs created by Nikola Tesla, as its name implies. Unlike its predecessor, which was a simple conventional power plant that was identical to its Allied counterpart, the Tesla reactor is a USSR-patented device. It shares many similarities with an earlier creation, the Tesla coil, but differs significantly: where the Tesla coil was a barely contained open circuit of electricity, the Tesla reactor was a well grounded closed circuit.

After Anatoly Cherdenko's interference with the timeline, the Tesla reactor was replaced by the more traditional Reactor.

In-game[edit | edit source]

While the Tesla reactor is quick to construct and provides the same amount of power units per credit spent as the Allied second-generation power plant, it occupies a larger footprint (2x3 vs. 2x2) and produces less power per reactor, meaning equivalent power generation requires considerably more space.

Development[edit | edit source]

Originally, it was supposed to be an advanced nuclear reactor, with the ball being an exposed reaction chamber and a sliding barrier that could extend and protect it (the cut turtle mode).
