Why are thief's allowed to steal vehicles that are under the effects of an iron curtain??

by thief i think you mean hijacker?

and probably because its their job to steal stuff. The hijacker already has a hard enough time trying to steal things plus units can enter and exit an iron curtained APC so why cant the hijacker enter?

The Iron Curtain makes every part of a vehicle invulnerable, but it does not fuse all those parts together, all the vehicle's mechanics still work: It's wheels can still spin, it's guns can still fire, and therefore, it's doors can still open and close.

Balance-wise it also helps that the Soviets have a way to deal with enemy Curtained units, as the Allies can allready deal with them by chronoing them away.

Is Chronoing IC units possible in OpenRA? Because i'm pretty sure it is not in Vanilla RA2 and YR.

It is actually. A famous tactic for using the chrono shift is to chrono land units into the water and let them sink. As well as chrono shifting naval units onto land and have them explode instantly.

You have to make me try? It doesn't work on ICed units.I'm sure.

Edit: Tried. It indeed doesn't work.

No, you can't chrono IC'ed units in vanilla.

You also cannot IC buildings and base defenses in vanilla either.

Fairly certain both those things being possible in OpenRA is intentional, to add additional counterplay to each ability.
The Thief already has limited uses. Being a very soft counter to IC sounds fine to me.

No you can ic structures on both yr, ra2 and ra1. But i think some yr mods like Mental Omega makes this impossible.

I just tested this you can Chrono IC units. If you are speaking about enemy units being Chronoed then that is something I was unaware.
