A new war rages between Israel and Syria, while the USA and China continue to fight against the GLA, turning the local Mid-East crisis into A GLOBAL CRISIS. "A_Global_Crisis" brings Israel and Syria (from the Mideast Crisis total conversion mod made by Isotx, with their permission) into C&C Zero Hour, with all of the original C&C ZH factions, campaigns and Generals challenge missions, BUT with some great new changes like realistic artwork and new units + an additional United-Nations Boss General!

Yeah, well… we had a big discussion about this at our forums.
The thing is that Israel already has Apaches, Cobras and Black-Hawks in this mod,
While the U.S. has the Comanche (which supposed to be more modern than the Apache, but in reality the project was canceled), and the Chinook (which has the exact same role as the Black-Hawk in-game, but has more room for soldiers).
So, since the U.S. already has units that do the same things, and because I would like each side to have its unique units – I won't add Apaches, Cobras and Black-Hawks to the U.S. factions.
(Same thing goes for the F-15 and F-16 which only Israel has in this mod, since the U.S. already has the F-22 Raptor, the Aurora bomber and the F-117 stealth fighters).

What about the F-35 JSF?

You mean for the US?.. No. Because they already have the F-22 Raptor which is better, and actually the F-22 and the F-35 have the same role in-game.
Additionally, I think that the F-22 Raptor is a very cool jet-fighter and it's already in Generals/ZH, so why bother to change that?

BTW, the UN Boss General uses the F-35 JSF in this mod ( Moddb.com ). ;-)

do any of the new tanks have co ax guns?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

No, because coaxial guns usually ruin the gameplay, since it makes the infantry virtually useless.

Aw for crying out loud.
The main gun doesn't kill in one hit?
Then now no coaxial MG.

There are at-least 2 good reasons for that: Game-play and balance;

Game-play:
--------------
In real life, tanks have more chance to miss infantry because infantry can take cover. This is one of the things that this game cannot simulate, so instead tanks shells are simply less effective against infantry.

Balance:
-----------
If a tank could kill a man in one shot in this mod or had a coaxial gun, then infantry would become useless, don't you think?

Additionally, this mod is only SEMI-realistic. It is realistic because it has many real life units and such which make the mod interesting and eye appealing.
BUT it's also UNREALISTIC because there're also many unrealistic/experimental/futuristic units (such as the Aurora, Comanche, Chinese MIG, Nuke Cannon, Israeli THEL and other laser units), the GLA does not exist in real life and China is very iconic (old style uniforms and unit colors instead of modern camouflage).

Remember! This is just a computer game, therefore it suppose to be fun and cool. Nothing more.
Have fun! :)

As far as i remember Merkava mk 4 is better than the M1A2 Abrams in many aspects so i wouldn't say that it sucks comparing it with the abrams.
btw F-22 and F-35 aren't playing the same roles, F-35 is more of a tactical bomber than the F-22 while the F-22 is an air superiority fighter with electronic warfare and ground attack roles and so on...

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

IN REAL LIFE, the F-22 is an air superiority fighter (with addition ground strike abilities) while the F-35 is a multirole strike fighter.
Additionally, as Gen.Reaper mentioned, there's an aircraft carrier version of the F-35 while there's no such model of the F-22.

I know all that. BUT what I SAID was that the F-35 and F-22 have the same role IN-GAME! NOT in real-life (modern design advanced jet fighters with anti-air and anti-ground capabilities) so since the F-22 Raptor is already in-game and I think it's cool enough – I didn't bother to add/replace it with the F-35. SO FAR.

In the future, I might add the F-35 as the U.N. main fighter (instead of the F-22) and as the U.S. aircraft carrier fighter (again, instead of the F-22).
Since Israel is participating in the F-35 JSF project, I thought I might add an F-35 strike as a special ability upgrade for the Israeli Air-Force specialization (again, maybe in the future). But anyhow, at-least for Israel, the F-35 will NOT be available for standard use at the air-base.

Gen.Reaper,
IMO the USA ground and aerial drones make good implementations of the FCS and it's already in Zero-Hour! :)
So I probably shouldn't spend valuable time on adding more of these… don't you think? ;-)

Most of the Main System and Sub Systems are still just concepts ,but the first brigade is expected to be operational in 2010. And Generals takes place in the 2020s.

So I bet by then, The Future Combat System will be fully operational.

I made a small error the First Combat brigade is expected to be operation in 2015. So by the time Generals take place, there will be at least 2 or 5 brigades operational. It is expected to be fully operational in 2030

actually the M1A2 Abrams is the most advanced MBT in the world with its 120mm main gun and its superior armor whos composition is classified. no other tank can match it at all as the U.S. Military has never lost a single Abrams in combat. The Merkava is not even close to matching the Abrams. it is slower than the Abrams and overall old technology. at least by U.S. standards its old tech anyway.

The M1 Abrams is a great MBT indeed. :)

But saying that "the U.S. Military has never lost a single Abrams in combat" is not exactly true and a huge exaggeration;
About 20 M1 Abrams tanks were lost during the 1st Gulf War ( En.wikipedia.org ).
More than 20 were lost in Iraq since 2003 ( Atimes.com ).

Anyway the Merkava IV tank is VERY advanced and without getting into the useless debate about "What's better", the Merkava Mk. IV is definitely at the same class of the M1A2 Abrams.

I'm not going to release another versions of this mod any time soon.
If and when I will - it'll take some time - and it would probably be just for bug-fixes and AI improvements.

BUT I DO plan to release a map-pack someday (Middle-East style maps).
