The Aegis cruiser is the Allied anti-aircraft warship in Red Alert 2.

BackgroundEdit

A marvel of Allied naval technology, the cruiser is essentially three missile batteries mounted onto a standard cruiser hull, integrated with a sophisticated array of targeting systems, radio-location devices, and other sensors, allowing the Aegis to track, engage and destroy any missile or aircraft in its vicinity. However, the focus on anti-aircraft weaponry has left it vulnerable to sea-based threats, especially Soviet Typhoons and squids.

Game UnitEdit

The cruiser may only engage air units, including the rockets launched from the V3 Rocket Launcher and Boomer submarine; it may not attack the nuclear missile from the Nuclear Missile Silo.

The Aegis fires faster if the player manually controls it rather than letting it fire automatically. Its missile barrage increases dramatically at Elite status and is capable of completely destroying a group of 3 Kirov (and maybe more) in seconds, making it become the most powerfull AA unit in game, especially if it has collected a firepower upgrade crate.

Its Soviet counterpart is the Sea Scorpion, a smaller and faster ship with a weaker armor and AA attack, however it costs half the price of an Aegis and can engage sea and ground targets.

AftermathEdit

It is not known to operate after the events of the Psychic Dominator Disaster. After Cherdenko's to 1927, the Aegis cruiser was erased from time and replaced by the Hydrofoil during War of the Three Powers

AssessmentEdit

ProsEdit

  • Can destroy even a Kirov Airship in a moment.
  • Most powerful anti-air weapon.
  • Very fast firerate when elite.
  • Missiles can reach their target even if it's out of range.

ConsEdit

  • Quite expensive ($1200).
  • Slow.
  • Defenseless against water and land units.
  • Very vulnerable against SEALs, Tanya and even infantry from shore.
