Gravity? What's that?
—A Cosmonaut expresses his excitement about weightlessness
Cosmonauts are special infantrymen trained to fight in the hard vacuum of space.
Cosmonauts are equipped with all the necessary life support equipment to survive in the vacuum and a jet pack like that used by Allied Rocketeers. They are armed with a laser cannon that is most effective against enemy infantry and vehicles.
Thanks to Yuri and his technology, which we've managed to capture on Earth, you are now able to train Cosmonauts. They can fly above obstacles and destroy enemies with laser blasters.
—Soviet intel during Operation: Earthrise
- In Earthrise, Cosmonauts serve as the main infantry unit of both the player's Russian and the enemy Epsilon forces, replacing most infantry except the Engineer, Tesla Trooper, Desolator, Brute, Bloatick and Dunerider.
- In the Revolution Challenge, Cosmonauts are part of the enemy Soviet forces, spawn from the Rocket Launch Bays and attack the challengers' base.
