Gear Change is a Soviet support power available from the Industrial Plant. It immediately gives $3000 to the player upon activation, but forces all of their Industrial Plant and War Factories' crews to perform equipment maintenance that shuts them down for 60 seconds. As a result, it is only useful for emergency situations.
Unused by the AI.
- The Gear Change is first usable in the campaign in the Covert Ops mission Eclipse. For the Soviets, it is first usable in Dragonstorm.
