Nuclear reactor icon
China has used Nuclear Reactors as their main source of energy since the GLA war, and this tradition continues in present time. Known for its instability and for providing more power than most of other factions' power plants, Nuclear Reactors and the smoke coming out of them are a common sight wherever a Chinese base is present.

In recent years, a more advanced version known as the Breeder Reactor has also been developed.


Ability Description
Overcharge icon
Overcharges the Nuclear Reactor, increasing its power output by 50% but gradually damages it by 3% of its hit points per second while active.
Automatically stopped when the Nuclear Reactor is at 33% hit points remaining.


Add-on Description
Land mines icon
Land Mines
Lays a minefield around the building that explodes when an enemy steps on it, causing 100 to 50 LAND_MINE damage over a radius of 5 to 10. Triggered mines are replaced after 20 seconds.

Costs $400 and takes 12 seconds to complete.


The Nuclear Reactor is the main power plant used by the Chinese. It provides more power than Russian and American power plants, but when destroyed, it explodes violently, showering the area with radiation. As such, protecting Reactors is extremely important.

However, if a Chinese base is suffering from an energy crisis, it is possible to order the Reactor's technicians to overload the reactor. This doubles its power output at the cost of the integrity of the reactor itself. However, updated security protocols meant that the overloading is automatically stopped once the Reactor sustains too much damage, preventing it from being destroyed.
