The light tank is a cancelled unit from Red Alert 2. It is similar to the light tank of the previous game, being very fast and lightly armoured. The tank was intended to be featured in the game, but was scrapped in the end. However, the data for it was left in the game, making it possible to put this tank in a map using the map editor or INI editing.
According to the residual Rules.ini data, the light tank belongs to the Soviet camp, specifically the Iraqi ("Arabs"). It is painted in the Allied scheme, but does not fit the Soviet concept of heavier units.
