Mideast Crisis 2] (MEC2) is a total conversion for 'Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars' set in the near future, letting you use modern technology (such as the Abrams, F-35 and Hind) alongside future technology (such as Drones, Airships and Medibots) in a conflict ranging from Jerusalem to Beirut.

Information and screenshots for four new MIDEAST CRISIS 2 units.

Posted by InterfaceLeader on Nov 21st, 2007

AWACS


AWACS – In an attempt to make surveillance of borders and settlements more effective and less expensive, Israel turned to airships. The first designs were little more than blimps with cameras on the bottom, but recent models are quite advanced. Wide and flat, they make stable surveillance platforms and are equipped as standard with visual, infra-red and motion-sensing cameras on stabilized mounts.

No detail escapes these devices. Electronic marquee banners along the sides pass on information relevant to anybody in the area. As the threat of air attack from ballistic and cruise missiles, hijacked civilian aircraft and military warplanes has increased, these blimps have been retrofitted with lightweight radomes up top to make sure Israel is never caught off-guard. AWACS blimps in military service are digitally linked to vehicles and troops in the field, and combatants can use information from the blimps to fire much further with accuracy than they otherwise could.

Mechanic Drone


Mechanic Drone – One of Israel's combat utility drones, the Mechanic Drone is a remotely-piloted flying repair system. These drones are also equipped to detect and dispose of mines. In combat, these drones are often paired with high-value vehicles to keep them in the fight longer.

APC


APC – Tracked APCs were proving too damaging to roads in built up areas and were maintenance-intensive to boot, so the IDF developed a new four-wheeled APC to use in more urban environs. With no weapons of its own, this new APC is protected by thick armor and the troops inside who can fire their weapons through gun-ports on all sides. APCs are the most frequently used units to defend town points and other valuable urban positions due to their maneuverability, armor, but lower psychological impact on the locals when compared to tanks.

Merkava


Merkava – The Merkava V is the latest iteration of Israel's supertank. It's name, translated into English, means "God's Chariot" and it is designed to dominate the battlefield with biblical force. With the best armor protection of any Main Battle Tank in the world, and armed with one of the most devastating guns, the Merkava is more than a match for any enemy. It also has room for a small squad of support troops, and can be modified to serve as a field ambulance. New depleted uranium ammunition is becoming available on a limited basis.

You can see more screenshots and images in the MEC2 images section.

Coming soon!

Great looking as always. For some reason blimps scare me much like clowns. I think it must be my Starcraft "Carrier" nightmares... make them stop!

BTW, these are great screens! The art direction is far better than C&C3's.

Also, the lighter colors are easier on the eyes.

Well done to whoever's doing the writing too. It's at the point where it good enough to slip into the background and get missed...but still do its job. :-)

Thanks for the comments guys. :)

Much of the unit designs shown here are due to spyVspy's concepts, aka the reason why Halogen looked so good (you can check out Asylum here; Moddb.com ).

He concepted/modeled/textured the AWACS and Mechanic Drone. And then also concepted and modeled the APC as well.

Also...this update was supposed to have screens of Temple Mount on it as well, guess Isotx decided to put it in a later update.

@Varsity, ah, though initially the newspost I think didn't stated anything regarding the development team (since the one on the website doesn't contain such statements), did it?
Also, just to clarify things, its not like we're just "hosting the website"; a bunch of MeC1 material is used (which we made), along with some concept art, the logo design, website design, a bunch of PR etc.
Hence I'll re-edit the newspost clarifying this...

@BlckWyerve and Godwin
hmmm, I keep rereading the newspost, it clearly states "produced" not "developed". We developed and produced mec1, and now teamed up with DS to do MeC2.

in addition, we're not "simply hosting websites forums". You've been misinformed if thats the case. Talk to smurf.
