Rise of the Reds – or ROTR for short – improves upon the C&C Generals formula while also adding its own distinct elements to it. Most notably, the mod adds two completely new factions, the tank-heavy Russian Federation and the defence-oriented European Continental Alliance. In addition, the three original factions China, USA and GLA have been greatly expanded and redesigned in a variety of ways, with several new units, buildings, powers and abilities to explore and combine in your in-game tactics.
Full designation: Type-102 "HAN", heavy gunship
Armament: 2 x 100mm light cannon, *top secret*
Performance: 2 x heavy lift turbine engines
As China had learned in their previous conflicts, fighting an enemy in remote and inaccessible locations was difficult using their largely conventional armoured forces. As such a design was drawn up for a well armed and armored attack helicopter which copied heavily from Russian gunships of the previous century and was designated Type-102 "HAN" by the PLA design comittee.
After some other trivial issues were solved (the rotor blades had the unfortunate tendency to snap off during turns) it was ready for service. The protracted development period paid off; troops in remote areas suddenly had the equivalent of a heavily armoured flying tank supporting them. The 100mm guns punched through the roof armour of tanks with ease, and the helicopter had enough ammunition to provide fire support over the battlefield for hours.
