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.
The team for MEC2 has been busy this past month! This update shows strategy in action with the Mr. Stop counter-attack and some shots of the Blackhawk. The heat in this battlefield is getting hot as this total conversion marches to a now August release.

There will be no release in July, August is now the target month. While we are quite close to release, a couple of major things prevent us from getting it out this month:
The benefit to this is that the release will include a couple more units, buildings and maps that were planned to be released in a future update.
One of the changes is the Apache shown below. See it? Isn't it shiny?
Well, we're cutting it and replacing it with a new attack helicopter for the IDF--the Gideon.
How to Survive a Merkava attack as GOI
See a large force of Merkava's approaching your base? Your MiGs are busy reloading--what do you do?
It's simple. You hit the 'Mr.Stop' and 'Production Boost' powers, halting the enemy units and drastically increasing your production speed and letting you crank out T-90's with ease. Something to note, when your production is increased, the smoke stacks of your factories spew fire (you can see it on the production building in the screens).
No infantry screens yet, we're still tweaking them. In the meantime, here is the Blackhawk which is how your infantry are delivered to the battlefield.
One Last Thing
You've been so nice to read all of this that we have a reward for you. We have even more stuff to read if you head on over to our official website.
Also, keep in mind that this is just how it is right now; things will change prior to release, we can almost promise that.
