This is scary.
- Technician in Red Alert 2

Technicians were experts in various technological fields who were employed by factions during the Second World War and the Third World War.


Yeah? Okay.
- Technician in Red Alert 1

Technicians were tasked with maintaining sensitive equipment in buildings, and sometimes manage to evacuate the battlefield once the building was decommissioned. Interestingly, they were among the luckiest personnel, often escaping death in buildings they maintained that were destroyed by the enemy.

However, despite their 'luck', they were useless and highly vulnerable once found on the battlefield. They were usually armed with pistols for personal defense, but had little combat skill, often panicking and running around aimlessly (often to the amusement or annoyance of commanders). However, technicians in Red Alert 1 could do mild damage to units with no armour whatsoever, like the V2 Rocket Launcher.

Their real in-game value is to go into Grinders or Bio reactors.

Involvements in the Vorkuta Unrest

During the Post-war Crisis, trouble arose in the Soviet village town of Vorkuta. Riot police and military forces clashed with protesters like Sergei Kondakov over the Soviet Union's programs of Tesla weaponry. The combat engineers, technicians and shipwrights were arrested by the Soviet secret police under the Soviet commander and sent to prison in response. The rebellions have stopped and the riot police and military forces were sent to retrieve their injured personnel.
