In this week’s Throwback Thursday feature, we continue with our Iconic C&C Units sub-series with the Terror Drone from Red Alert 2. This unorthodox spider-like mechanism was no joke – it was a blazing-fast vehicle that could be used for scouting and slowly dismanling enemy vehicles from the inside. Their drills could instantly kill infantry in the same way Attack Dogs could. However, their weaknesses were Service Depots and Repair IFVs, and if the infected vehicle would chronoshift (e.g. a Chrono Miner), the Terror Drone would be left behind. Enemies without the ability to repair an infected vehicle had to force-fire on it to destroy the Terror Drone that was inside at the cost of the said unit.
