I got something up my sleeve for you, Commander. Why don't you come a little closer to my base?

The Vacuum Imploder is the Soviet Union's Ultimate Weapon developed during the Third World War.

Background

RA3 USSR logo The following is based on the Soviet campaign of Red Alert 3 and contradicts canon sources.
When the Soviet Commander attacked an Allied research facility in Mykonos, Greece to capture the research data of a superweapon that was nearing completion, the combat engineer responsible for extracting the data wondered out loud what subatomic particles have to do with weapons, and later said that the data could theoretically be used to make a "giant vacuum cleaner". This data later became the basis for the Vacuum Imploder.

Description

The Vacuum Imploder, when ready, fires a Vacuum missile at anywhere on the battlefield. The missile forms a singularity, sucking in all nearby enemy units, no matter their size, and heavily damaging structures. Any units caught in the singularity are instantly destroyed.

Abilities

RA3 Vacuum Missile Launch Icons
Vacuum Missile Launch Fire a missile that creates an artificial singularity that sucks everything inside the epicenter. Once inside the epicenter, every unit that got sucked in will be instantly and utterly destroyed. It also tears the armor of structures within and "outside" the epicenter, thus getting severely damaged or completely destroyed in the process.

Tips

  • Should the player use the Vacuum Imploder against a large enemy group, it may be very profitable to activate Cash Bounty military protocol as the victims orbit the singularity before being destroyed (This is similar to using the Magnetic Singularity near a large group of vehicles, followed by Cash Bounty, then the Magnetic Satellite)

Glitches

  • Similar to Magnetic Satellite, if the singularity is formed while a unit like Sickle or Cryo Legionnaire is jumping, the landing animation is still played, even though the unit itself has been sucked in. A jumping Reaper would still spawn its legless version on the ground.
