Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge come with many unused voxels.

Some of them are like the alternate Dreadnought initially intended for Russia, however others are entirely unique units.

Some are TS holdovers, but others had been created specifically for RA2

Some of them in my recollection:
- Phalanx tank (some kind of allied missile tank)
- Howitzer (in Soviet color scheme)
- HIND (Soviet transport helicopter, unfinished rotors)
- Alternate Soviet harvester (silver and less fat)

I believe that the greatest obstacle in incorporating these on custom maps (such as OIL IN CENTER or Rekool) is the lack of cameos. Thus they appear just as a red generic square, which looks bad and unfinished.

Since we can open the voxels in 3D view, I propose we can make them into SHP cameos and put the cameos of unused units in CnCNet. After all, many non official files have already been added.

These voxels I specificallymentioned all already have ART(md) entries.

Optionally, the HIND rotors can be fixed.

What do you say?

It is only a few kilobytes.

<code>As a parallel proposal, I would also like to note the existence of Soviet versions of Cloning Vats and Psychic Radar. These are normally overruled by the YR versions, even though their prefix is NA instead of YA. If the Yuri ones were to have a parallel graphics file, while keeping an art entry for the Soviet ones, these could be used in custom RA2YR online maps. Furthermore, similar functionality is also included in "RA2 mode", this would only extend it for it not to need to ban everything from YR (for example, for a custom map with both Soviets and Yuri having Psychic Radar and Cloning Vats; or soviets having Cloning Vats and Yuri Moon Rocket).</code>
