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.
The Construction Crane is Russia's go-to building vehicle. It should be noted that unlike the combat engineering units of America, Europe and China, the cranes are not equipped to clear minefields, necessitating the use of MTLBM 'Mishka' utility crawlers for detection and disposal.
