Patch 1.11 for Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 was released in June 2009, despite the changelog being mistakenly set to May 2009. This was the final patch that brought extensive changes, as patch 1.12 was merely a hotfix.

The downloadable patch executable includes all the patches that were released before it.
