Turtle Mode

Turtle mode is a feature cut from Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. According to available concept art, certain Soviet structures were supposed to be able to enter the aforementioned mode, increasing their resiliency, but disabling the structure's production capabilities. For example, the Tesla reactor would cover the core with a protective steel shield, while the barracks' trooper would lower and hide in the structure. In one of the in-game cutscenes, a Chronosphere can be seen closing its shutters to brace for impact from a missile launch; this may have been an instance of turtle mode as well.
