All of the thanks to goes to Carnius for a great mod, I am thankful that you are kind enough to make this for me and the rest of the CNC community, without caring about any kind of pay or reimbersment. I and, I believe the rest of the CNC community really just want to say, THANKS CARNIUS! and thank you for coming to TEF.

Name: Raptor
Type: Light Aircraft
Armorment: Twin 20mm Machine Guns
Strong VS: Infantry & Aircraft
Abilities: Low Flight (Raptor begins too fly at 1/3 altitude, then does not appear on radar. While in this state, tall NON-Anti-air units can attack it. Can last up to 1 min.)

Story: Mutants captured some of NOD's harpies & GDI's Light Orca's. They used the best of the two different aircraft (the weapons of the harpie and the engines of the light orca) and created the raptor. The raptor works well at covering mastodon's from enemy rocket squads.

Name: Chinook
Type: Transport Aircraft
Armorment: N/A
Strong VS: N/A
Abilities: Carries 2 Infantry squads AND 1 light vehicle.

Story: The mutants found blue prints to the chinook helicopter in an abandoned warehouse, they then modified it to there needs by increasing the armor and troop capacity.

Name: Tyrant
Type: Medium Aircraft
Armorment: 1 Plasma Cannon & 1 Rear Alien Lazor
Strong VS: Vehicles & Aircraft
Abilities: N/A
Story: Many years ago the mutants captured the blue prints for the banshee, now they have found 2 downed stormriders and discovered how to use their technology. The Tyrant was born, based off of the stormrider body and then they added some tiberium armor and a banshee plasma cannon.


So what do you think of them?

The Raptor sounds good, but I believe it's too similar to the Harpy Mk2, the Jumpjet Trooper and the Ravager, making it useless since the Mutants are not a faction, but supporting units. (If you go and read what carnius told me for the Looted Pitbul, you'll see why it's in the Mutants and not GDI as he was planning)

The Chinnook is also a good idea but the TW engine won't allow more than one unit being carried at a time.

The Tyrant I don't agree for story-wise reasons. The Scrin are a cyborg faction, it needs some really great technology in order to connect machine and organism, something the Forgotten don't have. Not even Nod knows how to create Scrin plasma lazers, I don't think the Forgotten would ever be able to do that. Also, Nod is the only human faction who can create plasma, if it was so easy, everyone would have the same technologies.

WRONG.... i dont mean to sound blunt, although if you check out CNC retarded's APC it can hold 2 units at the same time just not have any mines...

Basically, imo, there is no need to add aircraft for the Forgotten. If it was going to be a full faction ok. But me, that little house is getting overloaded. Anyway, opinions:

*Raptor sounds interesting, but that low flying thing looks weird. Basically a faster Looted Pitbull without the Missiles
*Chinook looks good. Particulary fit. But, for an old choopa looks too much 2 infantry squads and 1 vehicle.
*Tyrant  hell no. No high tech fings for them.

ok how about changing it to 2 infantry squads OR 1 vehicle?

Im against aircraft for mutants too, they have enough things for a support faction now, and we still dont know what is Carnius working on....

It does get more than two squads at a time, but they are bugged and won't come out with the only exception being the last (or first) unit entering it, all the other are just stuck in it till the end of time.

We can't actually rely on carnius fixing that, some things just can't be done due to engine limitations.

How about my dragon with minigun attached lol...
Name: Captured  Avion
Type: Live Animal Aircraft
Armorment: 2 Front mounted miniguns
Strong VS: Infantry and light vehicles
Abilities: swoop - climbs down and picks up a vehicle to drop from height killing it(only vehicles with a airlift option are able to be "swooped").
Recharge time : double/triple nod shadow squads bomb building.
Effects Required : Blood on damage.
Story: Many years ago the mutants captured the large birds of prey,
With mind control chipsets they are able to use their technology and
were able to get the beast to support miniguns strapped directly to its neck aimed by using the bird itself to move its head.
 The Giant  was born, based off of the mutating strands of reptiles that fused with birds.

By the way check my blog for the "look of it" lol

That lifeform (without the miniguns of course) would be a good Tiberium-infected beast like the Tiberian Fiend. But, a huge bird rigged with miniguns reminds me of pokemon, and C&C does not match with pokemon or huge and strange lifeforms armed with guns.

PS: nice model.
