I am Zhana, Comrade. My squadrons are at your beck and call and will sacrifice all for the glory of the revolution!
- Zhana, to her co-commander

Zhana Agonskaya (Russian: Жанна Агонская) is a Soviet Air Force general during the Third World War.


Zhana is a Soviet Commander with preference towards air units, having worked in the Soviet Air Force and the Soviet Intelligence. She is a true Soviet loyalist, who boasts about having the most loyal units in the Motherland.


Zhana was conscripted into the Soviet air force at a young age and immediately distinguished herself as a brilliant pilot, leader and devoted patriot. Eventually reaching the rank of commander, many pilots across the union seek transfer under her command.[1]

It is said that each of her pilots can single-handedly take down ten enemy planes. A strict and skilled commander, she will execute any subordinate who fails to meet her standards. She is therefore feared but at the same time greatly respected by her troops.

Zhana personifies the Soviet airforce. In fact, her picture appears on propaganda posters all over the Union. It is said that after she came into command of the Air Force many more young men have joined than ever before.

The beautiful and elegant Zhana has a casual tone to treat adversaries with a minimum of respect. Although charming her methods are lethal for her opponents.

Role in the war[]

She is the rival of Commander Giles, an Allied Air Force General.

In the Allied campaign she, like other Soviet commanders at one time, worked together with the Allies to stop the Imperial menace by destroying the Floating Fortress in the North Sea (Operation The Unfathomable Fortress). Surprisingly, Zhana devoted herself entirely to the achievement of the military objectives. She treated the Allied commander with respect, unlike other Soviet Generals.

In the Soviet campaign, Zhana helped the commander to retake the city of Vladivostok from the Empire of the Rising Sun and destroy Tatsu's palace there during operation Taking Back Ice-Harbor. She then assisted in the capture of an Allied lab on Mykonos. When the Union needed her to lay a trap for Field Marshal Robert Bingham, she and the Soviet General established an elaborate ambush to deplete the Allies troops. Bingham and his surviving officers were forced to capitulate. She survived Premier Anatoly Cherdenko's betrayal on Easter Island and helped the commander to destroy the Premier's volcano fortress (Operation The Stone-Faced Witnesses).

In the Imperial Campaign, she was assigned to the defense of Stalingrad from an Imperial assault in Operation To Conquer Shattered Spirits, which ended in Soviet defeat.

The Uprising[]

Zhana was not seen during The Uprising. Her whereabouts during the conflict were never disclosed. As her death is never seen in the Allied Campaign, it can be assumed that between games she was captured and taken prisoner by the allies.


You may know me as Zhana, Commander of the most powerful Soviet airforce. I will accept your surrender at any time.
- Zhana to her opponent

Zhana prefers using Twinblades to overwhelm her enemies. She builds up Airfield fast and support her ground units with waves of Twinblades. Despite being the "Commander of the most powerful Soviet airforce", she doesn't use MiGs or Kirovs often, but tends to use Apocalypse Tanks and V4 Rocket Launchers in late games. Nonetheless, she still uses a wide variety of units for ground battles, just like Oleg.

On water maps, Zhana still carries on her Twinblade spam, but she also makes heavy use of Akula Subs, along with other Soviet naval units.

Zhana is known for escorting ally heavy bombardment units with her army.
