CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and it features realistic units from the 80's.
We want CWC to be a mixture of realism and fun. CWC is more realistic than vanilla Generals, with real life weapon systems and side specific characteristics.
CWC offers 2 factions: Russia and USA. The Russians tend to use tanks and artillery (for example: T-72 / T-80, BM-21, 2S1 only to mention a few) while the USA rely on aircraft and high tech units (for example: F-15, F-16, F-117, A-10 etc.).

Also we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder. So engaging a T-80UK with a US Rifleman won't be a good idea. Other infantry units can be a real pain in the ass to armoured units though. We want the players to use more infantry than in regular Generals, where infantry wasn't the big deal. In CWC Infantry can be very useful, even against tanks if you have LAW/RPG-Soldiers.

This mod is dead. But it is one of the best ones out there. I give it a solid 10/10 IGN rating.


Old, but, gold.

It's sad that number of players in CWC is so low. Come on, everyone, join up in online battles with us! I will share with all latest versions of the game, if needed.

Can you guys add the latest versions here?
I am stuck at 480 and since the site is down I can't get any newer versions.

I tried to DL the patches manually using wayback machine, but that doesn't work.

Hello, everyone! Is there any way to replace original T-80BV and T-80UK models with other from GetRolling map?

Also, I'd like to know how to edit game data files in this mod? I want to change some stats for personal use only, but can't do that with FinalBIG editor.

This mod is how Generals should have been. The quality of the work done in CWC is remarkable. I followed this mod ever since I first saw it in 2005, the first things that caught my eye was BMPs floating on water, just like in real life. The only game I had seen that in was Operation Flashpoint. So began a long wait, I visited the CWC website every week looking for updates, and every time there was an update it gave me a smile. I eventually registered at the CWC forums and posted a few posts. My…
