A massive rip in the in the very fabric of reality was caused inadvertently by the Scrins use of their rift weapon. This anomaly would eventually be known has the Dimensional rift. The effects were devastating, the time line was shattered and suddenly people, events, vehicles even buildings suddenly ceased to exist. Suddenly both GDI & Nod had vastly altered armies. Old technology was mixed in with the new, briefly the war was suspended, has both armies struggled to come to terms with both their loses and their new additions. And what of the Scrin? completely unaffected! It was 3 weeks after the dimensional rift that the first skirmish occurred. Nod forces destroyed a relief convoy that was moving to assist a small GDI outpost, all personnel were lost. Belatedly GDI declared war on Nod, the tools of war may have change, but Tiberium was still present, Kane still alive and mankind's future still uncertain.

Skins can not be low poly only models can... and the model doesn't seem low poly...
@Madin: Good Job on the Orca bomber (I think it is at least!)

Why are you making a Bombing Run special power with fighters?

Have you ever played C&C3?

What do you want it to be called an 'attack run'?

It is basically in this mod because of the Orca attack run FMV from Tiberian Dawn.

I might call it the 'precision strike'

But this one is from TS. These had their entire own FMV (after taking Vega's island). Honestly, far more badass than canyon run as well.
Though, if you ask me, it's still only the second best Orca craft. Nothing beats the first.
Except maybe overuse.

Though, for some reason, I feel as if this one's some sort of mix of TS and TD. Didn't the Sun orcas have fixed fans?

Excellent post!

I completely forgot about the Tiberian Sun Orca strike FMV.
I agree that it is even better than the Tiberian Dawn FMV.

So yes, this the Tiberian Sun inspired Orca strike.

If the TS Orcas had fixed fans, then this is a small refit, designed to give even more manoeuvrability.

Yes, I have, but I always thought if it wasn't dumb to do a "bombing run" without bombers.

It's not so much of a "Bombing run" as much as a strafing run.
See: Il2 back in the forties, the A10 and Su-25 now.

Lacks the detail of the other models, but it's still nice.

Well, given that it'll probably be a high speed run through the map, it'd be a lot of work for not much gain anyway.
