Build a missile silo. When the missile is ready, sell the silo and immediately launch the missile. If this was done quickly enough, the sale will have stopped and some troops will come out of the silo.
Playing as the Soviets:
Send a tank into the enemy base when you have a Iron Curtain and a Missle Silo. When the tank is attacked, use the Iron Curtain. Then, when a large amount of enemy forces surround the tank, launch the atom bomb.
Ore truck defense:
If infantry are attacking your ore truck, simply use the ore truck to crush them.
Making cruisers accurate:
Cruisers will miss when firing at something in the distance. Hold [Ctrl] and click to force them to fire on the ground and a little above the target.
Cruisers without protection:
Cruisers can fire at water-vehicles by force firing on the target. However, it will not do as much damage as if normal target was attacked.
Tanks vs. spy:
Although you may think your spy is safe if no dogs are present, tanks are still dangerous. They will not shoot at your spy, but will instead try to crush him.
If you are under attack by enemies that are coming by bridge, transport, APC, or Chinook, destroy them quickly to cut them off.
Giant Ant missions:
Hold [Left Shif
and click on the round speaker at the title screen to play the four bonus Giant Ant missions. To kill the ants easily, use Rocket Soldiers. However, use Medium or Mammoth Tanks for the Fire Ants. If your units are standing still, they will have a much better chance of killing the ants.

Low power strategy:
When you have low power, your defense (Turret, Flame Tower, Pillbox, etc.) can still function. But structures such as Tesla Coils, AA Guns, and Radar Domes will go offline. Your radar will not appear until the power is back to normal. However, your other structures will still build or repair depending on how much power is available to you; the less power, the slower the construction
