RA1 Concrete Wall Icons

Simply put, the concrete wall has seen service as a defensive barricade for almost a century. Simple, reasonably priced, and vastly superior to sandbags, concrete was the main static defense for many bases during the Second World War. They are vunerable to explosive and cannon based attack, but their thickness barred C4 from effective use against them.

Description

Derived from civillan standard design, the standard concrete walls of most of the wars were fairly tall, preventing enemy infantry from climbing over and stopping direct fire weapons, such as tank cannons, from hitting a target behind it. Steel rebar inserted during construction give it the strength to withstand multiple hits from a tank assault. During the First Tiberium War, these were virtually the ultimate in defensive barricades, being able to halt the progress of any unit, even tanks, for some time.

Strengths

During twentieth-century wars, concrete was unrivaled as a barrier material. Though slightly more expensive than its competitors, concrete could stop tank shells and halt the progress of any unit.

Weaknesses

Despite being able to stop direct-fire weapons, artillery and other indirect-fire weapons could pass over the walls and strike their targets unhindered. Even more so, aircraft were totally unaffected by the presence or absence of walls. Also, despite its superior defensive power, concrete was more expensive than sandbags

Aftermath

It was continued to be used in First Tiberium War by both GDI and Nod. In Red Alert Universe, it was phase out and replace by Fortress Walls during Third World War
