Sputnik Drop
Faction SovietLogoThumb Soviet Union
Function Support Power
Brief Send the word of Soviet power from the stars to the Earth with a Sputnik surprise.

The Sputnik is the Soviet Union's favourite way to remind a population that the Union is present and ready to take charge. The outposts of the Union spread the "gospel" of communism to the masses, alerting to everyone that the Soviet people will welcome them not only as comrades, but friends and loved ones. Before that, however, the Union needs to get the Sputnik on-location.

Mir, as with so many of the Union's obstacles, presented an answer. Assembling the Sputniks in space in a manner similar to the Lunokhod tank, Soviet space command takes orders from Soviet command to fire the Sputnik on-location, where it would utilize the force of impact to instantly deploy into an outpost. After a few failed trial efforts (One miscommunication had a Sputnik fired into the Arctic Larsen B ice shelf where the operator felt "chilly"), the communication between Mir and Earth was cemented, meaning that a commander with proper clearance can move forward without risking a lost expansion vehicle.
