- Technician in Red Alert 2
- Technician in Red Alert 1
Technicians were tasked with maintaining sensitive equipment in buildings, and sometimes manage to evacuate the battlefield once the building was decommissioned. Interestingly, they were among the luckiest personnel, often escaping death in buildings they maintained that were destroyed by the enemy.
However, despite their 'luck', they were useless and highly vulnerable once found on the battlefield. They were usually armed with pistols for personal defense, but had little combat skill, often panicking and running around aimlessly (often to the amusement or annoyance of commanders). However, technicians in Red Alert 1 could do mild damage to units with no armour whatsoever, like the V2 Rocket Launcher.
