The Nuclear Converter is a Soviet add-on for the Nuclear Reactor which grants access to various nuclear-based utilities at the cost of using up some of its power. It is available once a Radar Dish is built.

Official description

The expansion of SteinsTech, Kanegawa Industries or PsiCorps for the Soviets was a proof of one thing - war drives research forward. It was foreseeable the Soviet system would not let their enemies overtake them in technological developments. Thus, they have been upgrading some of their Nuclear Reactors with massive extensions for advanced nuclear-based weapons development.

These Nuclear Converters sacrifice a significant bit of a Reactor's power output, in order to grant the Soviets access to a vast array of deadly utilities.[1]
