The Psi Commandos were psychic soldiers available as a stolen-tech unit in Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. Taken genetic data from Yuri's clones allows them to be genetically reconfigured to serve the Allies faithfully and use their psionic abilities to dominate would-be assailants while they do the dirty work of destroying base facilities of their former master. Likely to distinguish themselves from the Soviet and later Yuri-loyal clones, these elite troops painted their faces white.

Cherdenko's time travel to the past erased this unit from the timeline.

In-game

They are based on Psi-Corps troopers and Navy SEALs, from which they inherit enhanced mind-control abilities and C4 charges. However, they are not amphibious and are unable to create psychic blasts.

In Red Alert 2, they can be trained after infiltrating a Soviet battle lab with an Allied spy.

In Yuri's Revenge, they can be trained after infiltrating a Yuri battle lab, regardless of the faction that controls the spy. This is a very hard task since Psychic towers automatically detect enemy spies when in the vicinity of a Psychic Radar.
