The soylent values for Tanya and the Spy are the same as their original buy value, which should be half of the buy value as all of the other units.
Not true. It's less for the Spy.
Cloning and grinding Tanyas makes more money faster, but is more noticeable.
Due to the fact that you get a free copy of a unit with a cloning vats, you will be able to sell the copy and the originally trained unit for the same value that you spent training one, thus you get a double return.
In a sense you're offering a clear advantage to some one who manages to steal an MCV.
Soviets are not supposed to have an allied MCV and likewise allied is not supposed to have a soviet MCV in the first place.
Soviets in RA2 can legitimately capture a Tanya with a Yuri and grind her for 1000 $
capturing a Spy is somewhat easier since he's unarmed and hence it gives a bit less.
If you're dumb enough to let your opponent steal your MCV and don't stop him from making double tech, well then that's your problem. Besides, this literally never happens in any competitive match (QM), at least, it's never happened to me. If you play with crates enabled, then you have no room for such complaints.
If anything, allied infantry shouldn't be clone-able, because, as every good player knows, allied units are a lot better than their soviet counterparts (you're not quite there if you don't know this).
