While the French and German armies gather at the Polish border to prepare for a full-on Soviet invasion, the now resurrected Russian super soldier Volkov and his cybernetic dog Chitzkoi are sent on a covert mission to wreak havoc in Paris.
- Mission description

Recharger is the sixth mission of Act One Soviet campaign. The two cyborg heroes of Russia - Volkov and Chitzkoi - are brought into battle once more after their recent resurrection and are sent to Paris to take down the unsuspecting French HQ of the Euro Alliance while their forces rally on the German-Polish border.


While the string of victories in the United States, along with the subjugation of the Midwest, had been impressive, the Soviet General's attendant had told him that he should pay close attention to his personal NKVD along with the politics back in the Kremlin. The destruction of Chicago wasn't supposedly planned, as Premier Romanov himself wasn't even authorized to make the strike which caused an uproar in the Supreme Soviet. What makes things worse is that the General was suspected to behind the recent "disappearance" of the Stalin's Fist prototype. His personal NKVD officers, close comrades and acquaintances were trying desperately to convince the Premier that the General is loyal to the Soviet cause, to spare him from being listed to the purge.

Due to ongoing investigations, the General is locked out of the Soviet Weapons Protocol for the time being, unable to take control of an MCV or any facilities within the Soviet domain. However, to counter this, a secret operation is given to him: Strike at the heart of Europe and instill terror in the Europeans before they strike out into Russia itself.

Using only Russia's great heroes, Volkov and Chitzkoi, the General was sent to Paris to make 'a grand gesture' to his fellow Soviet troops.

Clearing Paris


The Europeans are terrified at your merciless attack on Paris. With Volkov resurrected and better than ever, the Allies now know that the ideology of Stalin will never die!
- Battlefield report

With the destruction of Paris and the Alliance forces present, the Europeans' morale was crippled. Soon enough, the Soviets would invade Europe en-masse and take the entire continent under their control. The general's assistant observed that with Volkov's return, the Allies will learn that while they can kill Stalin in the previous war, they will never be able to kill his ideals.

While this was happening, the General was recalled to investigate Devon Island in Canada. Here, he would find something that would fully enrage the Americans.



  • This mission is a remake of City of Lights, the fifth Soviet mission in Red Alert 2.
  • A Borillo was provided to the player in version 3.0 after the Eiffel Tower was destroyed. It was removed by version 3.3, presumably because it made the mission too easy at times (such as responding to the large detachments of Navy SEALs that the Euro Alliance would continuously send at Volkov).
