NEXUS cent would eat it alive. Bear in mind that the RS stats are at very least double a YR equivalent...that goes for both weapon and armour stats, though the emphasis is on weapons. A rookie Fusion Cannon would one-shot a ConYard in vanilla YR.
although I think two shots would be needed for a conyard. Prisms would mearly bounce off the armour of a centurion. Me and Apollo did have a conversation of how long the Soviets might last against NEXUS..
They would have put up a fight at least, but still they would have fell, but less harder than Yuri.
Yuri would have been massacred, although his forces may have put up a fight. Initiates would have been good against NEXUS but of course he has easily replaceable *and more harder to kill* Terminators, Eradicators and Excecutioners (immunity to Virus, easily slaughtering Brutes). Wraith cannons alone would have been perfect to clean out Initiate infested buildings, not to mention Predator mechs. Yuri Discs would have been good units actually, able to weave in and out of combat inflicting some damage on NEXUS weaker forces (even challenging Zephyrs by running and firing) but would easily be taken off the scene when NEXUS anti-air units arrive (Centurion blamming it out of the air, for example). Magnetrons could in vain take on a Centurion in the hopes of dropping it on a building, in a lake or on a tree and perhaps win, but the celebration would have been cut short when a Hades arrives and blasts the crap out of it. Lasher tanks can take on Robot Tank counterparts even with the self healing, but as soon as ADV Robot Tanks arrive, the Lashers have lost. Chaos and mind control as we all know don't work either
Gattling tech would have been next to useless, probably only inflicting some damage to Hades craft however, although Mantas would have been seemingly unstoppable, same with Centurions and with the masses of NEXUS forces Yuri would be 1) Out-teched 2) Out-gunned 3) Out-manned and most of his precious technology couldn't work on the forces anyway. If anything they may have relied on other sides to do his dirty work while they went and infiltrated the Sovs but in all cases the 'pure' flag of Yuri's army would wave no more.
As for the Soviets (those who didn't succumb to the League) we figured they would have some cream of the crop of technologies due to advancements in the civil war before they lost it. In a match up against NEXUS they would have been an annoyance indeed, but hardly a threat.
Rhino Tanks would have been basic, comparable to lets say a RS slightly-better Grizzly Tank. They might be able to take on Robot Tanks and ADV Robots in numbers (backed up by Tesla Tanks which are slightly weaker but still have Tesla *which may be deadly*). Terror Drones are now NEXUS, but Tesla Troopers and War Miners would still pose a huge threat to them. Flak Tracks would be comparable to the Ravager but slightly weaker due to the APC qualities. Conscripts, Flak Troopers and so on would have been slaughtered by Terminators, although the Tesla Troops may survive longer (smaller against Eradicators) to send an electric payload *that may be very deadly mind you* but would die to Excecutioners. Apocalypse Tanks would have been overall the best unit, able to possibly take on NEXUS and surviving, with a ratio of 3:1 against a Centurion and possibly winning, probably even having the missiles modified to take on Zephyrs and so on. Desolators would have been useless sadly
Boris would have been good to clean off Terminators and NEXUS infantry, even the most basic of units but would be ultimately hopeless against the larger versions of units. Kirovs would have been too slow but still a distraction somewhat, and Siege Choppers would prove invaluable, as in numbers may pose a threat to Predators, Wraiths and even Centurions backed up with Apocalypse tanks, not to mention challenging NEXUS' base if he leaves open a blind spot.
