+10 (+15 with Overcharge)
Explodes when destroyed
In recent years, a more advanced version known as the Breeder Reactor has also been developed.
|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.
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.
