The Tesla Reactor is the Soviet Union's basic power plant in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and its expansion pack Yuri's Revenge.

In-game

Official description

The Soviet army depends on the Tesla Reactor to run its base operations. Like Power Plants, Tesla Reactors are extremely important, but are very vulnerable. These structures must be protected at all times. Spies are a particular nuisance.

Assessment

While the Tesla reactor is quick to construct and provides the same amount of power units per credit spent as the second-generation power plant used by the Allies, it occupies a larger footprint (2x3 vs. 2x2) and produces less power per reactor, meaning equivalent power generation requires considerably more space.

Development

Originally, it was supposed to be an advanced nuclear reactor, with the ball being an exposed reaction chamber and a sliding barrier that could extend and protect it (the cut Turtle mode).
