C&C:VRM Generals strives to make Zero Hour as visually realistic as possible. This means that we would like to replace every in-game entity with its closest real world equivalent. We are NOT interested in changing the gameplay in any way, and intend to keep the original balance of Zero Hour entirely intact.

Our ultimate goal is to have every unit in the game, every icon, every building, most sounds and most particle effects replaced to be as realistic as possible. The crusader tank for example has been replaced by the M1A2 abrams. Some units, such as the Avenger, have capabilities beyond real life.
We will still replace these units with their most logical real-life-counterpart, despite the real vehicle not being able to perform the same actions.

It is designed to work with a FRESH VANILLA INSTALL of Zero Hour, and will get start to get real buggy if you use some of the GLA zero hour generals.

I think if a war starts today they would use anything that can help out. I mean if a war starts in America their in deep problems due to most of their tanks being in Iraqistan. I bet they would bring out the old junk. :P Well just keep the mod as it is, i like it, and so does all the other people by the looks of it. So great work so far, Looking forward to the mod!
Also tracking. :)

Haha I really really want to agree on this, but I think there would be a shitstorm of whiners moaning that the Crusader should be an Abrams the moment we change it :/ TBH the MOST realistic would have been splitting Crusader/Paladin as Abrams M1A1/M1A2, but nobody can see the difference! :(

Wouldn't it be better if you replaced the Crusader tank with a M-60 patton, and the paladin for a M1A2 Abrams? Just a suggestion, maybe then you would be able to not mix up USA with NATO units.

I would have liked to do this. It would have been best to use a future US MBT for the Paladin, but there isn't a concrete design yet, it doesn't exist at all. We have to go with what exists, and the M-60 patton is not used anymore by US forces. They stopped using it in 1997.

Well the M60 2000 could be used but as for the older M60s don't they still have they stock piled in reserve?

Just because the M60 isn't used anymore should stop you from using it. I mean i love the tank, it looks awesome! Also it resembles the Crusader a little better because it's smaller.
Anyway it's your mod, and i'll be downlading it anyways, M60 or not. :P

I know, it was annoying to have to include the Leo2 (although I freaking love this tank), but the premise of the mod is really "if war happened today..." and I'm afraid we wouldn't see any M60s (another tank I like because of its resemblance to the King Tiger from certain angles :)) from America or NATO, especially not as their "most used tank" .

What about the spectre gunship ? , you should replace it with the AC-130, maybe it isn't easy but you have to try
