This week in our Throwback Thursday feature, we feature the chopper with a license to chill – the Allied Cryocopter from Red Alert 3. True to the game’s unorthodox unit design, the Cryocopter lacked conventional weapons, but was equipped with an emitter that could either freeze targets so they were immobilized and easier to destroy, or fire the S.H.R.I.N.K. beam which, as the name implied, shrunk target units to a size susceptible to crushing (and caused their voiceovers to sound as if the pilots inhaled helium).
Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don’t forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you’ve missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.
