Mass Production is the Soviet economic upgrade, which can be accessed via Top Secret Protocol after authorizing Cash Bounty and all three levels of Desolator Airstrike. Later patches moved it to after the three levels of Orbital Drop, though it remains unchanged in the Uprising expansion.
This upgrade reduces the cost of all units by 25% for the Soviets and 12.5% for any allies. Higher threat levels further reduces the cost slightly. Mass Production in the Ultimate Edition for the PS3 version reduces the cost of everything the Soviets build by 25%. However, if allies play as Soviet, this protocol will stack up to only 25% maximum.
