Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell us about the history of the development and combat using the weaponry and also about its features. Compile a list of air, ground, or naval vehicles that feature this weapon system in the game.
Vehicles equipped with this weapon
|Maximum speed||390 m/s|
|Explosive mass||39.91 kg TNTeq|
The Red Angel is very similar to other large rockets, such as the Tiny Tim or Uncle Tom. It's a large, slow rocket, with a devastating payload, that usually doesn't even need a direct hit to destroy even heavily-armoured targets.
The Red Angel's high explosive TNT warhead explodes immediately on impact. Damage is caused mostly by blast overpressure and fragmentation.
Comparison with analogues
Give a comparative description of rockets that have firepower equal to this weapon.

- Extremely heavy
- Low velocity
- Heavy payload that will affect flight performance

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the
main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using
<ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the article about the variant of the weapon;
- references to approximate analogues by other nations and research trees.
