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.
This structure is a stationary defence version of a ship turret used on the destroyers of the Royal Netherlands Navy, albeit with an upsized 140mm cannon that excels against tanks. Operated by a highly autonomous fire control computer housed inside the peculiar 'pod' structure, the turret can spot, identify and engage hostile ground vehicles without any human input. The massive cannon is fed by a fully automatic loading system capable of cycling shells at a staggering rate. In addition, the Gun Turret can switch between two types of ammunition: A general purpose anti-tank round and a unique 'Penetrator' round whose core consists of a complex, synthetic material that is harder than diamond, allowing the round to pierce clean through multiple targets along its jet-stabilised flight path and making it more effective against a tighlty packed mass of vehicles.
