The Corkscrew Transport is a vehicle cut from Red Alert 2. This infantry transport uses unique corkscrews to traverse the offroad and safely transport soldiers.
The Corkscrew Transport can be seen in the Red Alert 2 intro and beta footage as a Soviet unit, while it has Allied insignia in the concept art. However, it was scrapped ingame in favour of the hovercraft-like Amphibious Transport.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The Soviet Union did expeiment with screw-propelled vehicles which did possess absurd off-road capability and were amphibious, but could not traverse hard surfaces without heavy damage and were smaller than the transport depicted in-game.
A Russian scout unit called the Mishka in the Rise of the Reds mod for Zero Hour bears a resemblance to the Corkscrew Transport.
