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.

I think the guardian drone is far more cheaper than the hopper because it doesen't need any human pilots and lets face it tankettes are so old fashioned

Lets not forget the cheapness of Chinese fod- I mean Chinese SOLDiers in this timeline... or the low cost of manufactering in China..

Software [for AI] is expensive, human brains... less so.

Also the Hopper is built in pairs the cost is 1000$ so 500$ each, while this drone would be like >600$-800$<.

by simply making stationary rapid left and right turns any tank can do this fairly quickly provided that it has enough weight and thew soil is soft enough.

My father said he used to get chewed out by his CO in Poland when he did this with their T-55 training tanks back in the 70s. Apparently it makes cleaning the tank after wards a bitch to do :P

Yes, but three things, one: how long did it take and how deep could the tank get? And two: the drone weighs significantly less than a battle tank, and three: If the ability works on rocky surfaces that explanation makes no sense.

Is deployment permanent or not?

That would be counter-intuitive to the USA doctrine of mobility.

Right. It's basically just a deploy/undeploy ability. You're supposed to send the Guardians in, go hull down for protection during the fight and move on. Alternatively, you can work deployed Guardians into your defensive line as an improvised static gun defence.

Yep, if the GLA Command Center is mobile it can be mobile.

wow with this its going to be ******* awesome at USA skirmish battles! i mean my strategy is mostly ambulance, a couple of missile defenders and rangers 2 pathfinders and firebases and a TOW humvee with normal humvee all protecting one area and avenger and chaparral along with a wasp hive to provide additional support, but with these i think i can just make a huge defensive position with these drones deployed with the extra support and **** hahaha

Description

"Back in the Corps, we always had two major rules that we were to follow at all times. First: Do not -ever- leave your fellow Marine behind in a fight. Second: If you can't drop an enemy dead with your gun - use MORE gun! The second rule must have been one of the few things that the R&D eggheads have actually learned from our previous engagement with the GLA, so they created this little guy right here: The Guardian Drone. This amazing box o' fun on treads is basically a remote controlled mini tank - I bet you would have loved to find one of these under the tree on Christmas. Armed with a short 40mm cannon, the Guardian packs enough punch to blast holes through light vehicles and it is both small and agile enough to support our grunts in close quarters. Its treads are built to be very sturdy to compensate for the recoil of the weapon, which also allows the drone to bury itself into a hull-down position for added protection. The Guardian stands as a fine example of our new doctrine: First you send in the robots to secure a foothold and then you get boots on the ground to seal the deal. Rumour has it that the Chinese are currently developing a new type of light tank for the exact same purpose. I hate to break it to the guys in Beijing, but...manned tankettes have been out of fashion since World War II. I guess they missed the memo."
