C&C: ShockWave is an enhancement mod for C&C Generals: Zero Hour. The main goal of this mod is to make Zero Hour a more interesting game with more diversity between the generals, making you think twice before you select a certain general, and overall provide more choices, diversity, and strategic freedom than in Zero Hour - while keeping the spirit and design direction of the original Generals game and storyline.
The old R.A.D. tank for general Tao was a mere radiative adaptation of the Dragon Tank, and was more of a prototype. General Tao thought it would be wise to move the R.A.D. tank project out of the prototype stage and finialize a new and more fitting design. Because of the new design and a more powerful reactor core, it is able to go twice as fast as the old R.A.D. tank. As a conciquence, the Reactor core is now much more unstable and will go critical in half the time when ejected.
