Hm, it's somewhat lacking

This article (Crusher Crane), or a section of this article, is a stub and thus shorter than the author expected.

Due to the method that everything is written for Paradox, pages can get forgotten, inspiration can be lost, and writers can get lazy. In any case, on this page more could be added later.

"But will it blend?"

- A common game among conscripts is to throw random items into Crusher Cranes.


In any war the Soviet Army has participated in, damage to their famous vehicles and tanks is inevitable. (Despite popular Soviet belief, the Apocalypse Tank is not invulnerable). The problem though, was that Soviet War Factories had no means of repairing vehicles. They were too busy keeping the production at full flow. So, to fill this gap in Soviet strategy, a crane equipped with repair drones was made.

Made especially to keep pressure off over-stretched Soviet Construction Yards, the Crusher Crane can provide the manpower and materials to construct buildings and defences. However, due to the limitations of the Crusher Crane, it cannot construct Super Reactors, Industrial Plants, Telescreen Towers, or other Crusher Cranes for that matter. The Crusher Crane can also grind vehicles back to its base metals, meaning funds and materials used to create the unit are refunded. It cannot fully replace the build cost, however, as power and man-hours are not cheap.

It is rumoured that Natasha is especially skilled at sniping enemy drivers, and then getting them to a Crusher Crane for recycling. Her record is a Tsunami Tank, and 5 kilometres of jungle in 4 minutes and 16 seconds.
