For other spies.

Spies are Allied infiltrators in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 and its expansion, Uprising. Spies are available starting in mission The Shark and the Lure.


Allied spies were masters of disguise, capable of impersonating any friendly or enemy infantry, granting them access to the most heavily guarded enemy bases. While inside, spies were able to sabotage infrastructure in a number of ways, such as disrupting a base's power supply, stealing resources from an enemy refinery, or disabling the enemy's high-tech units and production.

In addition, it was standard operating procedure for spies to carry large sums of cash for bribing enemy troops. The spy's innate knowledge of human psychology, coupled with a surplus of foreign currency, makes a persuasive combination that even the most powerful enemy units have difficulty resisting. In practice, spies may cause large numbers of enemy forces to suddenly turn on their former commanders.

However, spies were trained to operate without any conventional weapons and their only defense was to avoid detection. In addition, modern armies have specially-trained units that can detect spies even when disguised. Some of these, such as attack dogs and Soviet war bears, were also trained to deal with spies in an efficient, if somewhat messy, fashion.

Game unit

Spies are unarmed units that are mostly meant to infiltrate enemy bases to either stall apocalypse tanks and king onis from being unleased on the Allied players tanks or to steal money from refineries to fund the Allied players war effort. The spies bribe ability should only be used on expensive superunits like apocalypse tanks and king onis otherwise its a waste of $1000. Recommended counters are Detectors with anti infantry weaponry like twinblades and sky wings due to spies cannot bribe enemy air units.
