Captured and trained by Soviet scientists, giant squids are capable of grasping enemy ships and crushing them with their powerful tentacles. Since they are usually submerged, they do not appear on radar. They were used as a line of defense for Cuba to prevent the Allies from reaching their Nuclear Missile Silosthere, but failed to stop them. They also were used in an attempt to prevent the American Allied forces from landing in Europe to help the European Allied forces fight in Eastern Europe. During the Psychic Dominator Disaster, the Soviets utillized a few of these units in a very unique tactic. They deployed the squid ahead of Typhoon Attack Submarines to pinpoint any Boomers and "lure" the Boomer's torpedos from the Typhoon (or any ship being covered). A direct hit from a Boomer can still be tolerated by the squid, provided that they keep maneuvering to dodge the torpedo barrage.
The best known and most effective counter was the Allied dolphinwho were trained for the sole purpose of taking out giant squids. The dolphin's sonic pulse would cause the squid so much pain that it would release ships and try to attack the dolphin, but it would die from only a few sonic pulses so it rarely could reach the dolphin in time. Yuri's Boomersubmarines could not be grabbed by squids, and are instead punched.

Jan 11, 2007 · Giant squid are fairly fast, aggressive predators---hundreds of feet below the surface, that is. The don't come any higher, or they'd suffer pressure changes their bodies can't take.
