I'm pretty sure that's General Townes who tried to revolt. I don't think Granger revolted, what actually happened to Granger anyways?

So, is this thing going in 1.85, or stays preserved for 2.0, along the big-*** howitzer?

We only showcase stuff in updates that'll be available in the most immediate upcoming version, so yes, this will already be in 1.85.

Just some question about that description. B-2 Spirit, which you can call in 3 level clearance, costed 737 million dollars 'in 1997'. And TMD, which you can call in 5 level clearance, costs 700 million 'in 2050's'(I guess). And you guys describes TMD is too expensive to deploy on low level clearance. I don't understand this.. Is that's just the reason that B-2 is stealth bomber so it can safely bomb enemies?

You seem to be overthinking this. The B2 is a rank 3 power because it's part of the same three stage power that also gives you the B52 and the B1 bombing run at the lower levels. A bombing run is a relatively mundane thing to do in modern warfare, which is why the power is available much earlier whereas the Guardian Angel pretty much renders all enemy air defences and missile-based weapons useless for as long as it's circling above the target area which is an extremely potent ability to have at rank 5.

I searched about it, it seems to be a quite interesting tank to add to the mod, General Alexander could have brought the project back, like he did with other technologies.
What do you, RoTR makers, think about it?

MARS2588 Apr 28 2014, 3:36am replied:

As far as we're concerned, Aleksandr's Tesla weapons -are- lasers, namely electrolasers, the kind that uses a laser to generate a 'channel' of ionised air between itself and the target which is then used to conduct a massive surge of electricity that is powerful enough to fry infantry and damage vehicle components. You could say that this is the reason why his Tesla 'rays' are a lot more straight and beam-like than the ones in old C&C games which would occasionally arc and bend like natural lightning. So from a design/story perspective, the Szhatie would be redundant, since we already have a 'new' version of it in the form of Aleks' Tesla weapons.

The Guardian Angel TMD is a rank 5 General Power. It replaces the old CIA Intelligence power which is now available by default: As of 1.85, Rangers can use their flashbangs to take enemy infantry units as prisoners instead of inexplicably killing them. Every prisoner grants you one use of the CIA power. Micro your Rangers to take as many prisoners as possible and you'll practically have a brief temporary map hack for every one of them.

The EAL-3 Guardian Angel entered service as part of the touted Tactical Missile Defense initiative in the early 2040s, which aimed to eliminate the risk of enemy missile systems including ATGMs, SAMs and even ballistic missiles in close coordination with American ground forces. After an extensive series of tests and evaluations, the Department of Defense signalled its approval for a plane whose distinct triple engine setup made it less susceptible to ground-based anti-aircraft fire than its more conventional competitors. The airframe went into serial production with a pinpoint accurate 150kW laser installed on its nose and an advanced sensor radome on its back. The Guardian Angel is also equipped with a sophisticated AI that can detect, identify, prioritise and neutralise missiles more quickly than a team of human operators as well as a large supply of infrared and radar countermeasures to protect itself. Due to its hefty pricetag of roughly 700 million dollars apiece, the EAL-3 can only be called into action by battlefield commanders with a full level 5 clearance.
