Psi-Corps Troopers are specially trained members of the Soviet Union armed forces, trained in sabotage and mind control. They were used during the Third World War, but were transferred to Yuri's faction during the Psychic Dominator Disaster as Yuri clones.

In Operation: Chrono Storm and in multiplayer, this unit is referred to as simply Yuri, implying that later members of this corps were in fact Yuri's clones.

Background

My command is your wish.
- Psi-Corps Trooper

Members of the Psychic Corps are psionically gifted soldiers used in various special operations. They can mind control enemies in addition to deploying a psi-blast obliterating infantry. They can be easily recognized by the implants they wear. Each one of them is shaved bald, so that the psychic stimulators implanted into their brain can operate without interference. The stimulator cables are connected to a psi-collar worn around the neck, which in turn connects to the psi-belt on the waist, which controls the level of neural stimulation delivered by the gear.

Each member is also tattoed on the forehead with a unique glyph, including three Hebrew letters: "resh", "vav", and "yod".

After the war, Yuri took these units with him, creating a cheaper version during the Psychic Dominator Disaster.

Appearances

RA2Sovietlogo The following is based on the Soviet campaign for Red Alert 2 and some details might contradict canon.

Several members were deployed at the Alamo, in Texas, to mind-control the USA president Michael Dugan (Operation The Fox and the Hound), following their previous assignment in New York, where they assisted in the deployment of a Psychic beacon, and succeeded.

In-game

As stated above, they can mind control enemy units and deploy a psi-blast to instantly blow mind up, killing any nearby infantries on process.

Counters

Psi-Corps Troopers are easily countered by Attack dogs, Terror drones, War miners and any air unit that can attack ground units. Snipers are also effective, since they can take them out at a significant distance. Prism tanks keep them at bay with their firing range.

Assessment

Pros

  • Mind control ability is a very serious threat to nearly all units.
  • Can also release a Psychic blast which can kill all infantry within range.

Cons

  • Expensive. ($1200)
  • Useless against aircraft and mind-control-immune units such as miners, robots, commandos and other Yuris.
  • Anti-infantry in numbers can kill them easily.
  • Relatively slow moving compared to other infantry
  • Psychic blast ability can cause friendly fire
  • Psychic blast ability immobilizes Yuri for a short period, leaving him very vulnerable to most attacks
