Red Alert 2
Owner: Soviet + Yuri
If you'll build the cloning vats, you will get a second, free unit for each infantry unit you'll produce in your barracks. Plus, you can send in (and lose) infantry units you don't want, and get paid a small for an amount of money - a good think to do if you accidently made too much infantry, or if you are mind controlling an unuseful civilian or enemy unit.
This building is expensive, but it pays back very fast.

A value-added tax (VAT) or goods and services tax (GST) is a popular way of implementing a  consumption tax in Europe, Japan, and many other countries. It differs from the sales tax in that taxes are applied to the difference between the seller-purchased price and the resale price. This is accomplished by taking full tax on all sales, but refunding the tax difference to the sellers.
