The Hind Transport is a Soviet helicopter cut from Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. According to the game's INI files, it was supposed to be available to Cuba only.

Background

The Hind Transport is equipped with specially designed towing equipment, allowing it to carry vehicles across the battlefield. It can also carry infantry (up to 10 soldiers) and fire on any ground unit and air unit with its machine gun, similar to the one placed on the NightHawk Transport. Similar to the Twinblade and Orca Carryall, looks to have been intended to carry vehicles as well. It also stealthed against radar.

Residual files show that it was supposed to be a Carryall-type unit that could pick up vehicles and ships up to and including the Soviet Dreadnought, but it would not be able to actually release them back down again, as the craft could only land on the ground.

Appearances

The Hind was supposed to appear in Red Alert 2, but was cut from the game at an unknown time. Its voxel is still present in the game files, and can be enabled in certain maps by using the map editor or in the whole game by INI editing. The cameo will appear differently than the image provided above, as the Red Alert 2 beta used the same cameo palette as Tiberian Sun, which makes the final Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 palette display the cameo improperly.

Trivia

  • Its propellers do not rotate due to their integration with the main body. Mods often separate them.
