The Howitzer is a cut artillery unit from Red Alert 2. According to the residual rules.ini data, it was supposed to be an Allied vehicle, available to the Republic of Korea only. Its INI data and voxel were left in the game, making it possible to place this tank in a map using FinalAlert or fully return the unit to the game by INI editing.

Design[edit | edit source]

Its voxel model was inspired by the mobile artillery from the original Red Alert, and was likely modified into the German tank destroyer, and the main difference, besides the colour scheme, is the angle of the cannon. The tank was created using the Soviet scheme, however, and all its voiceover sets (save for the selection) were shared with the Allied Destroyer and the selection set is shared with the Grizzly battle tank. Its artillery role was taken by the prism tank, while its South Korean exclusive unit role was transferred to the Black Eagle jet.

The explosion resulting from a Howitzer's attack uses a unique sprite which displays improperly, due to its use of Tiberian Sun palettes which were changed during the development of Red Alert 2.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Howitzer is modeled after the M110 howitzer.
