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.

Could there be an European NATO faction?
this mod reminds me of WIC and I'd really appreciate to see the French, the Brits, and the German, and any European NATO nations on the go!

try Wargame airland battle, it's a similar cold war rts with all nato/warsaw pact european nations. learning curve's pretty steep, but it's good.

This mod is completed, unfortunately and there will be no additions to the mod. At least with original team. But I doubt that CWC-team will provide someone permission to continue their work.

By the way, I have a request from myself: can someone drag stats of all units in the Notepad? I will really appreciate it, because can't do the same due to Mac OS limitations.

It's sad that no one from CWC team will answer to my question, so may be anyone else can help me?
Somehow I've downloaded all patches for CWC and the game shows 469 on the start-screen, but there are some differences in the gameplay when comparing Mac version to Windows version.
I don't know how to explain it, may be I just installed few patches wrong or something, but:
- different cursors; I don't have little arrows like ones I've seen in the Windows version (btw, it was also version 469, so it's the same), instead I have something different, more like classic icons from ZH/other mods.
- multirole fighters (F-16 and Mig-29) don't have that red circle for bombing, when you can drop bomb directly in flight.
- graphical bug with jetstreams; very often it becomes clearly black smoke with ugly textures or becomes totally transparent and I can see the ground through it.
Right now I can't remember something else, it could be also graphical or balance changes from Windows version. The main question is why this happened?

Please help!

Just shut up. What do you have to gain from creating conflict between Iranian modders?

This guy here has been doing all he can to instigate fights and conflicts between the Defenders and AFM-Rayan mod teams, but once I discovered this, I restored peace between us, and now we are working together.

combat drop in this mod is realistic, you could even hear gunfights while trying to take over a building.. :)

This mod is definitely amazing. The variety of units makes the game much more entertaining. The fact of the player's buildings, although large, being tents, which can therefore be constructed in a short time (unlike in the original game, where the buildings are made of concrete and bricks) and look much more like those found in a real military base makes the game much more realistic and cool. I enjoyed very much the simple fact that the buildings that can be occupied not get surrounded by sandbags and wire immediately after the soldiers enter (which is not very realistic).

A pity that I do not really like the theme of the mod, a fictional war between the USA and Russia in the past. I would like it a much more if it was a modern war, in the near future, between two countries whose war between them would be more plausible. Well, this is a mod about the Cold War, so unfortunately I'll have to look for another one. Still, it was very well done. Those who prefer this theme HAVE to try this mod. Muito bom.

Make lots of helicopters and upgrade them with rockets, rape the tanks easily.

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…
