    - Yuri Prime, announcing his arrival

    Yuri himself appears in game as Yuri Prime. He fills the role as the commando for his unique faction, similar to Tanya for the Allies or Boris for the Soviet Union in Yuri's Revenge.

    In-game

    Yuri Prime is a significantly more powerful version of the Yuri clone in that he can mind control enemy units and most structures. These exclude garrisonable buildings, tech buildings, superweapons, and faction-specific economy-supporting buildings (ore purifier, Industrial Plant, cloning vat). He can control an empty tank bunker or the tank inside it, but not both simultaneously.

    A controlled building can be ordered to attack (if a turret), if needed. Moreover, any controlled building can be sold, effectively destroying it and, to add insult to injury, giving funds and units to Yuri's side. When unopposed, Yuri can desolate enemy bases even faster than other commando units.

    He can also cross water thanks to his floating platform. His version of the psychic blast has a longer range, faster recharge time, and it can damage vehicles. This helps him deal with attack dogs, terror drones, war miners, and other threats more quickly and safely.

    Like Yuri clones, Yuri Prime also can auto-detect and mind-control a disguised spy, with the sole exception if the spy disguises himself as a Yuri Prime.

    Only one Yuri Prime may be trained from the barracks, although two can be produced if a cloning vat is built.

    AI behavior

    Yuri Prime controlled by the AI have the following attack patterns:

    Medium

    • 1x targeting power plants

    Hard

    • 1x targeting production structures; accompanied by 2 Viruses and 3 Brutes

    Changelog

    • Yuri's Revenge patch 1.001:
      • Yuri Prime is now immune to Yuri clones' psychic blasts.
      • AI-controlled Yuri Prime units now sell every structure they capture.
      • in a multiplayer game, if the host loads a Yuri clone, Yuri Prime, or psi commando into a Battle Fortress, then mind-controls enemy units, then orders this Battle Fortress into a grinder and exits the game, the guests' games will no longer crash.
      • if a commando (Tanya, Boris, Yuri Prime) is placed into a transport, and that transport is destroyed on water, the training slot for that commando unit is now properly freed.

    Trivia

    • Yuri Prime is voiced by Udo Kier the actor who is also playing Yuri in the cutscenes.
    • This Yuri Prime does not overwrite the old sprite of the original Yuri Prime. If the player removes the label "Image=YURIX" in the rulesmd.ini file, the Yuri Prime sprite from Red Alert 2 will be shown, until the change is reverted.
    • Yuri Prime is the only commando unit in the Command & Conquer series which does not make an appearance in the campaign.
    • In the official Polish manual for Yuri's Revenge, Yuri Prime is refered to as "Superjurij" which literally translates to "Super Yuri".
