Immune to mind control and radiation
The Chaos Drone was an unmanned vehicle within Yuri's arsenal.
Like many of his forces, it made use of mind control but in a completely different way. Instead of trying to control its enemies, the Chaos Drone did what it name suggests and released a hallucinatory gas which caused enemies that were exposed to it to behave violently, even against their own forces. This would cause even a well ordered enemy column to collapse as the gas amplified the strength of the affected enemy, who would end up attacking their own comrades before attempting to fight Yuri's forces.
The drone was able to infiltrate many bases quite easily in order to cause this effect, its ease attributed to its fast speed and artificial intelligence driver, the latter of which also made it immune to mind control.
Thanks to Premier Cherdenko's interference to the timeline, this drone was erased from existence.
However, the drone was very lightly armoured with no way of defending itself (other than releasing the gas).
Additionally, the hallucinatory effect wore off in time, making the drone a poor choice for a straight up brawl unless it came with support.
- Can cause enemies that are exposed to their gas to attack friendly units.

- A bit expensive ($1000).
- Lightly armoured.
- Berserking units will attack ANY unit.
- Vulnerable to tanks, air units and base defenses.
- Can be attacked by a Terror Drone despite being a drone.
- Unable to use their gas on animals, robotics and even psychic units.
