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.
In this Shockwave media update you will see new transports for China; there is the revised Light Troop Crawler for general Kwai, and there is the new bullfrog light transport and aphibious recon vehicle for all Chinese factions (buildable at the Command Center). More info after the jump.

Ahoy ShockWave fans,
Today we got a small media update for you displaying 2 new units for the next release.
First of the new troop crawler for General Kwai:
General Kwai has reviewed his tactics recently. After days of exercises, he came up with a new design to replace the standard Chinese Troop Crawler. These new transports proved to have a speed advantage over the old ones. With the removal of non important parts, this Crawler also became much cheaper to produce but also lost some durability. With efforts to reduce weight, transportation has been reduced to six troops. Speedy and efficient, these transports can quickly support Kwai's tank columns.
Second is the new Bullfrog Transport availible for all Chinese factions present in the game.
China recently has employed again an old trasport that had been retired. The Bullfrog is now used as a recon vehicle and light troop transport. Enemy generals have been trying to adapt to this new threat but China so far has been very cunning in it's use. The sighting of a Bullfrog can be very terrifying as they announce China is now aware of one's presence.
Bullfrog are produced at the command center and require no prerequisites. They are very cheap but are also fairly weak, but are pretty good for early game rushes, scouting, and tech building grabs. The Bullfrog may look weird to a lot of you, but it's based on a real vehicle used by the chinese army which you can see here Sinodefence.com.
Special thanks to Overdose for writing descirptions for the units shown above.
That will be all for today see you in the next update
