    Requested by Blue Monkey, The Rocket Cat is a Strange and Unusual Unit that is set up for use as a Cruise Missile :lol:
    Other than the Cruise Missile type animations, it also uses a Fortify and Fidget Animation as well.



    Flc Speeds slightly differ in game from the .gif Previews
    Default-Fidget-Fortify-Run-Attack-Bomb / Default All / Run All:



    Included Files:
    Alternate Civilopedia Images and Extra Images
    Civilopedia: RocketCatLarge.pcx and RocketCatSmall.pcx
    RocketCat_units_32.pcx
    Animations: RocketCatDefault.flc, RocketCatRun.flc, RocketCatFortify.flc,
    RocketCatFidget.flc, RocketCatAttack.flc and RocketCatBomb.flc

    Vuldacon, that is Fantastic!!!

    Now, if I can find my image of the Russian Dog Mine, could you do something similar?

    timerover51... The Dogs were like this:
    http://warwriting.blogspot.com/2011/01/russian-war-dogs-sacrificed-to-attack.html
    Would have to see about some props.

    Yes, it was sad for the Dogs but they helped their Human Owners against Tanks.

    Unfortunately for the Rocket Cat, Like the Dog Mine, there could be no escape for those animals when they performed their tasks.

    Of course there was not really a Rocket Cat but the Dog Mines were real. In reality, I believe Cats were taken from the Enemy and used to carry packs of Gun Powder with a lit fuse back to their Enemy home areas where the charge would cause a Fire and or explode.

    ...Although Strange as it is, the Rocket Cat is more a Mythological Unit that represents animals being used against the Enemy.

    ...same principal as tossing a Hornet Nest on the Enemy in the days of old. "Anything goes" in War.

    Nice work!

    Those who do not want to hurt kitty can use the unit as a scout as well x)

    Hmm, on that subject, some of the pirates operating near Rhodes in the 3rd and 2nd Century BC developed the technique of using a small ballista to toss pottery jars full of poisonous snakes into an opposing galley's oarsmen, thoroughly disrupting the oarstroke and making it easier to either escape or successfully ram the now very distracted galley.

    Indeed! Both very well-done, and very different than the standard unit. I may have to have some Rocket-Boosted Scout Cats in my next game.

    I thought the title said Rocket Cart at first.

    Imagine my surprise to see a cat propelled by a rocket.

    Some kitteh set us up the bomb.
    All your box are belong to us.

    I know not how I would use such a unit, but it, like the pimp, must be used some meow.

    Awesome work!

    For anyone who missed it, the "request" thread was here.

    There actually quite few weird units around - Deku Scrub, Kool-Aid Man, ... I wonder now if Vuldacon has something in mind for the Spunky Kid upgrade in EFZI: The Musical - shoulder-launched rocket cats?
