Tanya Adams is an Allied commando appearing in Red Alert 1.

BackgroundEdit

Adams is an Allied civilian "volunteer" (i.e. mercenary) to the Allied cause, not formally enlisted in the forces. The commando enjoys the patronage of General Gunter von Esling who regards her as a valuable field agent. General Nikos Stavros was initially uncomfortable with her civilian status, but accepted her eventually.

PersonalityEdit

Tanya is highly disrespectful of military authority; when General Nikos Stavros expressed concern over her civilian status, she cut him off with the comment "That's why I don't get killed". The only reason why she didn't get kicked out of the military was because she possessed skill which matched her defiant personality.

Character developmentEdit

Tanya Adams is a major character during the course of the Allied campaign. Under the direction of Field Commander A9, Adams rescues Albert Einstein from a Soviet research facility and subsequently demolishes key bridges to impede the enemy advance in Eastern Europe.

However, while gathering intelligence in enemy territory Adams is captured and Von Esling orders an immediate retrieval operation, led by A9. A spy infiltrated the prison and managed to halt the commando's imminent execution. Adams' interrogator and would-be executioner mortally wounds the spy but the diversion is enough for the commando to use the pistol thrown to her by the spy to free herself. After knocking out the six SAM sites guarding the prison she is evacuated by a Chinook. Adams' intelligence alerts the Allies to the Soviet Iron Curtain project.

After A9's men infiltrated a Soviet ballistic missile control complex following the launch of four nuclear missiles, Adams joined the field commander's forces and helped deactivate the four nuclear missiles already in flight. She then spearheaded the final push on Moscow by helping clear the way for Allied thieves to steal funds at a nearby Soviet outpost to allow A9 to build a base and enough firepower to defeat the last of the Soviet forces.

In Counterstrike, Adams ensures General Nikos Stavros' safety and evacuation in Greece as the country fell to the Soviet offensive.

In the Soviet campaign of Red Alert 1, an alternate scenario happens - Adams infiltrates a nuclear reactor deep within Soviet territory and sets it to overload, in a desperate attempt to stall the offensive. However, a Soviet commander manages to lead his forces inside the complex and kill her, saving Mother Russia.

Game UnitEdit

Adams is superb against structures and most infantry. However, units with heavier armor, like vehicles, are almost completely immune to her. Like all infantry, she is vulnerable to attack dogs and to being run over.

As the generic commando unit of Red Alert she could be trained by both Allies and Soviets in multiplayer. Also, her unit appeared and could be killed in Soviet missions, both in the main campaign and in the expansion packs.

In The Aftermath expansion, she is no longer available to the Soviets in multiplayer, as she is replaced by the new Shock troopers.

DevelopmentEdit

Tanya Adams was created for Red Alert by Adam Isgreen as a result of his fascination with John Woo's Hong Kong films at the time. To highlight the different nature of C&C and Red Alert he changed the commando to be a woman wielding dual pistols. Originally Adams was to be paired with Megan, ex-IRA demolition and stealth unit, but Megan was dropped.[1]
