Science is the basis for infantry and vehicle modernization. The benefits are enjoyed by your entire army – both your present army, and the army of the future. Expanding your Engineering Works will provide access to new types of scientific advances.
Over the course of the war, Soviet scientists were constantly on the lookout for new ways to fight the enemy. Various research institutes were reorganized and repurposed for war. Great importance was attached to improvements in tank armor. To this end, a new nickel-steel alloy was created; it maintained the toughness of steel, and was mechanically sound and resistant to corrosion. Soviet scientists could be found everywhere there was war: in the air, in the navy, in artillery regiments, in engineering and railway troops, hospitals, defense factories, and even on the state farms. The victory of the Red Army was largely a victory of Soviet science.
