The Stingray is a Soviet amphibious vessel in Red Alert 3 and its expansion, Uprising.

Background

Main article: Stingray/Profile

The stingray-class strike vessel was the first attempt by the Soviets at a naval weapons platform armed with Tesla coils. The Soviet Ministry of Experimental Science has been revising the design of the vessel ever since its introduction, and has assured that the current model is the safest and most effective yet.

The stingray was first invented by eccentric Moscow-born scientist Roman Grozavitz, who decided to outfit his private speed boat with a pair of Tesla coils to enhance his fishing expeditions. Grozavitz eventually became obsessed with this idea, working tirelessly to outfit his boat with a rubber-coated, insulated hull and a power supply that was light yet efficient. The work left him wifeless and broke, but the Ministry took notice and took him under its wing, granting subsidies and providing accommodations. Soon, the stingray was born, and some still consider the late Grozavitz a hero to this day.

After the stingray was complete, the Ministry excitedly explored various improvements to the original design. The only successful one was the stingray's collapsible movers, which resemble the six legs of an insect, and allow the vessel to move on dry land over rough-hewn terrain. Because of the inherent danger in the design of these ships, the Union recruited scientists in poor standing to operate them.

Abilities

In-game

The Stingray's Tesla coilguns are most effective against infantry and light vehicles. Its special ability releases a wave of electricity, damaging all enemies nearby but briefly leaves the Stingray immobilized. This ability can also remove terror drones. The Stingray is also amphibious, though it is much slower on land and cannot use its special ability.
