The Iron Dragon is a Soviet stolen tech unit acquired by infiltrating a Foehn Cloud Piercer and Construction Yard. Armed with a particle cannon, it can quickly tear apart infantry and vehicles alike from a distance, though less so against structures.

However, should the enemies manage to destroy an Iron Dragon, it makes nearby friendly vehicles temporarily invulnerable, thus allowing it to provide support to armor battalions upon their demise.

Description

A powerful experimental weapon was in development near the North Korean-South Korean border, where the use of the Iron Curtain Device takes a prominent place in dealing with intruders and performing destructive raids on enemy positions. However, since Yuri has completely disrupted the peace at the borders, leaving the Korean peninsula in chaos, work on this weapon was delayed until the team working on it was evacuated and moved deep within China.

In cooperation with Yunru's staff somewhere in Kashmir, the Iron Dragon was finalized after many experiments with particle collision technology. A unit was born that could tear flesh and steel apart in mere seconds, and with the cannon's formidable range, it could easily lay waste to entire brigades without taking any damage. When an Iron Dragon is destroyed, tanks nearby become invulnerable for a few seconds.

Overview

Appearances

  • Iron Dragons appear as part of Yunru's base in Thread of Dread. The player can unlock them by capturing an Atomheart from one of the Chinese bases, or capturing a Chinese Construction Yard and use it to build an Atomheart, marking the first and only time where a stolen tech unit is buildable in the campaign.
