Command & Conquer: Red Alert is the successor to the original Command & Conquer. Playing in an alternate universe, where Hitler is exterminated by means of a time machine, the Allies and the Soviets fight for world domination. Notable for playing its premise much more straight than any of the sequels.
The helicarrier is a cut unit from The Aftermath expansion. It carries up to five helicopters and launches them when ordered to attack.
Its cameo was also remade with the 2020 remaster.
