Nuclear Path is a support power available for China from the Nuclear Converter once an Atomheart is built. It temporarily infuses one of the Chinese commander's vehicles with a special nuclear fuel created from Nuclear Reactor "byproducts" that boosts its firepower and speed at the cost of weakening its armor.

AI behavior

The AI will cast Nuclear Path on specific task forces that will be prepared when the Nuclear Path is 70% charged, or roughly 2 minutes before the Nuclear Path is ready.

All difficulties

The following task force will regroup on their base first before activating Nuclear Path. Afterwards, they will proceed to prioritize structures before anything else:

  • 6x Qilin Tanks

The following task force will prioritize an enemy Radar Dish first before activating Nuclear Path, then targeting structures before anything else:

  • 4x Armadillos

Medium/Hard

The following task force will regroup on their base first before activating Nuclear Path. Afterwards, they will proceed to prioritize structures before anything else:

  • 3x Qilin Tanks, 2x Nuwa Cannons

The following task force will prioritize an enemy Soviet Construction Yard first before activating Nuclear Path, then targeting base defenses and then other structures:

  • 4x Nuwa Cannons

Hard

The following task force will prioritize an enemy Nuclear Reactor first before activating Nuclear Path, then targeting anything else:

  • 3x Jaguar Tanks, 2x Borillos
    • This is likely an error as these two vehicles do not belong to China.

The following task force will prioritize an enemy Radar Dish first before activating Nuclear Path, then targeting structures before anything else:

  • 2x Armadillos, 2x Nuwa Cannons

Appearances
