The Palace is Russia's advanced technology structure which unlocks the best of their units and structures.

Official description

This majestic construct provides a Russian commander with the most powerful technology their arsenal has to offer. Though the boons are many, the building is very costly and fragile, and should be well protected as the Soviet technology advancement method is simple but expensive.

The Palace doesn't only unlock the most powerful of Russian weapons, it provides access to two paradrop powers such as the Tank Drop and the Terror Drop. It also allows the Soviet commander to use Overcharge on his tesla units to heighten their combat potential.[1]

Like other Soviet labs, the Palace must be protected by its owner, whether from destruction or infiltration, that would otherwise prevent the Russian general from gaining the upper hand with Tier 3 units. In addition, unlike other factions, the Soviets only need a single technology expander (the Palace being one of them) to unlock Tier 3, but it requires a large amount of money to construct and power to maintain (in fact, all Soviet labs cost the same as offensive superweapons).
