Do not underestimate us, for we bear the wrath of heaven.
- Rocket Angel creed

Rocket Angels are elite flying infantry used by the Empire of the Rising Sun in Red Alert 3 and its expansion, Uprising.

Background

Main article: Rocket Angel/Profile

The result of an eight-year program at the Imperial Women's Warfare Academy to train elite female warriors, the Women's Elite Aerial Infantry Division, christened the "Rocket Angels" by Imperial public, was an all-female branch of the Empire's military. The program was initially controversial to many of the Empire's more-conservative subjects, requiring Crown Prince Tatsu himself to intervene.

Rocket Angels are equipped with advanced flightsuits, the latest in asynchronous thruster technology. Thanks to these suits, they need never touch the ground during battle (and in fact strictly prohibited from doing so by doctrine). They are armed with twin photon swarm-rocket pods deadly to both armored vehicles and heavily reinforced structures. They also possess a second, more insidious weapon - the paralysis whip, a flexible beam of high-intensity energy capable of disabling any ground targets.

Soon after their deployment, the Rocket Angels proved to be a resounding success, routing Allied Mirage tanks and Soviet Bullfrogs alike on the battlefields of Europe. Their speed and maneuverability led to the Allied battlefield truism "...the moment you see one of them [Rocket Angels], you're already dead, you're just too stupid to realize it."

In-game

Rocket Angels are capable of attacking both air and surface units. Their rockets are effective against vehicles and structures, but less effective against infantry units. As with other Imperial units using rockets, the advanced rocket pods upgrade allows them to fire more rockets at once.

Their paralysis whip can disable surface units, both infantry and vehicle, preventing them from moving or using their weapons and special abilities. This can be used to disable anti-air units or prevent targets from escaping.

Despite being able to attack air units, Rocket Angels still cannot match air superiority fighters, and should avoid them if possible. Also, due to their flight suits, they are affected by the magnetic satellite protocol.
