CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and 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 we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder.

Patch 473 including the brand-new Leopard 2A4 (added to the "Distant Thunder" Mission) has been released.

Hello there!

Today is a great day for us, i.e. the team, and for you guys out there for a variety of reasons. But first let me tell you that we're very happy with CWC, its fans and this community and we feel we've created something remarkable here. RTS modding is a niche compared to the FPS segment but we've still managed to put together a full-scale total conversion thanks in good parts to the skill and talent of my fellow team mates and your constant support over all these years.

When we started CWC, we wanted to create a mod that featured three distinct sides. As all of you know, two of them are present in the mod, the third was dropped since we ran out of time. Now, today we'd like to pay homage to this third side with its most potent weapon and a landmark in Cold War military technology, the Leopard 2A4. Most of you got the challenge right and we congratulate the brave few who stubbornly believed in the other odd choices (this includes me). Alright, enough of the words. We give you the last and final model of CWC, the European Alliance main battle tank:

This tank (which is more or less an Abrams variant with no anti-air machine gun but better armour) comes with the new 473 patch we've just uploaded to our servers. It is featured in a modified version of "Distant Thunder" and includes superb voice acting (believe me, it's really good). We might release a special mission featuring the tank in the future.. stay tuned.

As always, grab the patch using the starter or via manual download. Check the change log for details.

Four lucky winners of the Tank-Rush Challenge will shortly be contacted for their C&C 4 download. Congrats from the team on this achievement go to: HaryPL (First Place), Swolenator (Second Place), [R] (Happy Birthday and Third Place!), N00bha (for the lulz [seriously, Fourth Place, you did it!]).

Alright.. that's a long post and we hope it'll be one of the last since we consider this mod done now that all factions are (more or much less) featured in CWC!

Cheers and all the best,

the CWC-Team

Errr, there won't be a European Alliance anyways. It's just this single unit. Just read the last paragraph of the news again:
