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.
Despite their small dimensions, these pre-fabricated structures contain the most vital facilities for ECA infantry operations, including well protected (if somewhat cramped) living quarters for several soldiers, a sizeable stock of smallarms and provisions and an infirmary capable of dealing with all the most common injuries. Since the Europeans often set up their bases in close proximity to the cities they are defending, every Barracks is also equipped with a small, permanently occupied recruitment office in which volunteers can enlist to do their part at any time.
