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.
"Now, here's an interesting factoid for you: In statistical terms, the US military has expended 250.000 bullets on every insurgent killed during our campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq back in the day. When the War on Terror went Global, that number got even worse and we faced about ten times as many bad guys at a time. If you're up against an enemy as blood-crazed and fanatical as the GLA, the last thing you'll want is to run dry in the middle of a firefight. Our ammunition makers could barely keep up with this extreme demand and even if you've got enough bullets to keep the dakka going, you still need the logistics to distribute them among your troops. This, my friends, is what the Mule Drone is all about. What you're looking at right here is a new, state-of-the-art unmanned ground vehicle. The Mule is rugged, reliable and armed to the teeth: You can load anything from magazines and ammo boxes to missiles and shells onto this thing and grab whatever you need in the heat of battle. That way, our grunts can be extra generous and put out an overwhelming volume of fire. This also brings us to the Mule's own armament which consists of an M134 minigun and an array of flare launchers that can be used to draw enemy anti-aircraft fire away from out planes. It is this excellent combination of mobility, utility and lethality which earned the Mule a spot in the armoury of America's most elite special forces."
