- Shock Trooper

Shock troopers were an elite infantry unit of the USSR employed during the Second World War.


The Shock trooper is equipped with a portable Tesla coil, essentially a backpack generator with a lightning rod. He wears heavy armour isolating electricity and cannot be run over by vehicles. The troopers are used as special forces units and as pacification squads.

They are very effective against tanks and do heavy damage to infantry as well. However, their slow rate of fire, slow speed and high cost make them vulnerable to groups of rifle infantry and relegates them primarily to anti-tank infantry than elite infantry. They are, however, more resistant than standard infantry, including grenadiers and flamethrowers, having almost double the hit points. The size and weight of their equipment is a double edged sword, heavy enough to slow their mobility quite a bit but they are also unable to be crushed under tank treads.

The Shock troopers were succeeded by the more advanced Tesla troopers in the Third World War.
