Pretty much nobody has in almost a hundred years. And frankly, the photos are grainy as ****.

I suddenly got a feeling that I can only describe with the words:
"Drive me closer, I want to hit it with my sword!"

Which brings us back to an Allied force, using mixed Soviet and Allied equipment, and a yellow-ish camo, likely sometime after the Second World War. :P

Lest you got their **** by right of conquest, Stavros probably ain't gonna like you much, either.

Oh, I'm gonna blame that to the weirdness censor of usually not having seen Stavros around much.

Though, worth noting, I doubt Stavros would be doing much work with a Soviet force in the first place, what with Greece and stuff.

Ah, figures. Guess it would be somewhat annoying to basically delete half to get a decent fit with a few ships.

Nuttah @ Killing Fields [Frank Klepacki Remix]

Well, to be honest, they only got in contact with him about three or so years ago...which is still about half of the mod's life, at this point.
But anyway, they had to have been doing something right beforehand, right?

Minor nit; Is it just me, or does it look like the Mammoth is somewhat wider than the thing's deck?

It's never outright stated, but the intro background is the Allied eagle, and you even start out with grenadiers.
And you get Tanya in the last mission, right?

There's also the choice of camo on your troops.

Well, this is a base I haven't seen in a long, long time.
Oh, well, at least there's mammoth tanks!

That's an easy fix! All you need is a 90mm shell...or two.

A stick grenade's a stick grenade.
Personally, I'd sooner go with the RPG-40 hand grenade: Shorter stick, much heftier head.

Well, bottles would probably be white on top, but people would have to be aware of Anti-Tank grenades, as those were mostly known as before falling into obscurity. And half of those having conical features doesn't help with recognition.

Anyway, explosively formed penetrator mines, please!?

"...Khat contains a monoamine alkaloid called cathinone, an amphetamine-like stimulant, which is said to cause excitement, loss of appetite and euphoria..."

At first, I was going to make a few comments how the voiceover is going to have to be glorious, but now I'm just sad that it and the role can't be given to a particularly blocky 70-year old piston-engine monoplane.

Nuttah @ Delivering The Heavy Metal

Even though Nod "Won," and GDI, with its funding axed, was about to be on the receiving end of a -proper- Białystok-style reaming, it doesn't mean it's all sunshine and rainbows for The Brotherhood.
They were now, likely more than ever, a known violent terrorist group whose leaders are now almost certainly persons of interest in a certain very high-profile case of hijacking a high-powered orbital particle weapon. And using it.

^This is all me going off of the original ending.
(Well, trying, really, really hard to.)

So, sure Nod ruined their main singular foe's reputation and income, and launched a massive offensive that left huge casualties in its wake, but it's not like the rest of the world is going to be rejoicing over their newfound saviours all of a sudden.
GDI was an international peacekeeping organisation at the time; Blue Helmets,(but) in Heavy Tanks*. Them getting their major orificies remodelled doesn't mean that the countries paying for their stuff are going to like them any more now, they just became incapable of putting up an effective, unified resistance, so they can now be singled out and taken over individually, in time. All while the bulk of their attention is probably focused on the third world, and GDI is off, skulking and licking its wounds a lot.

*Also, centered more around the G7 countries, apparently.

As those countries fall apart because Nod, green rocks and "OH what the **** happened to that horse!?", new entities (GT) are formed(or grow a lot) by people with lots and lots of money, who very much wouldn't like to be living in the Land of Nod.
As an aside, the (para?)military wing of GT would probably have a lot of former GDI troops for a time.
Especially until the player stabilised their financial situation, which is pretty much all you do for the first third of the campaign; Find shelter, rescue personnel, and secure funding. First by getting in good graces with Globotech then by harvesting them sweet, sweet fields o' Green.
And this includes up to a decade of "And then nothing happened," in-between.

And as for the tech:
GT paid for those. And built them. Same with the uniforms your guys wear. Probably grew all the combat rations your troops consumed till the end of the game, too. I think that last bit is kinda ironic, given the shenanigans that start around mission 10.

And walkers might also handier than they are in real life, what with ever larger portions of the map turning into literal fields of jagged rocks that go up to your ******* knees while you're not looking!
Sure would suck to interrupt a patrol/scouting mission because your path is blocked by the spike strip from hell.


PS: Why can I ever have be concise with these ******* things? :/
