Nikola Tesla and Red Alert

Recommended Posts

I just looked on the CNC Wikia and on the page for Nikola Tesla I found the following sentence:

In Soviet Union, D.R.Tesla was assisted by a KGB Agent code named " Z " . He was a scientist, and learned the secret of harnessing the energy of time from Tesla himself. Tesla spoke, that his Tesla Coils, sometimes gave him glimpses of the future.

 

Does anybody know where this comes from?

Does anybody ever know where their information comes from? That wiki is notorious for not referencing its sources  :boring:

Umm, the real Tesla was never in the USSR... He kind of left Europe for the USA about 40 years before the October Revolution...

I realized and edited that out before you even made your post :P

 

Anyway, yea, there's a ton of stuff in there with no verifiable sources, and the article is marked for serious cleanup already...

...and the article is marked for serious cleanup already...

Aaand the entire wiki is marked for serious cleanup... As it so rightfully needs to be

The only information Westwood provided is in the manuals and the RA website. The site is backed up on CnCWorld

http://www.cncworld.org/wwr/games/redalert/research.html

And maybe there is some more info in the later site backup, sadly it's a broken mess. But iirc the info is just mirrored.

Maybe you can find some more info in the RA2 site.

Why do you think I disabled unlogged edits the other day? :P

 

Removed most of the text and left it with bare bones. Not something other people couldn't do, but eh.

It's probably just fanfic stuff. Thanks for all the help.

 

 

To Plokite_Wolf: There is also some information about Tesla on the page for Zelinsky. It's the same information that was on the Nikola Tesla page.
