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.

Nice! Is the vehicle going to be replacing something? Or an exclusives generals power (as part of vehicles drop?) or an entirely new unit for the Russians?

It is an entirely new unit, which will be available at Tier 0 since 1.86. Most likely it is not general-specific.

I wonder what will happen to the BMP-3? The two seem to have very similar functions and abilities. And at the same Tier even...

BMP:
- is cheaper
- is amphibious
- deals more damage to both infantry and vehicles
- is faster
- has 6 transport slots, unlike Grizzly, which has 2

Grizzly can replace BMP in its stealth detection role, because tougher armor allows it to survive longer. Since your tanks aren't fast anyway, Grizzly's lower speed won't be a problem. It also has good resistance to bullets, what allows you to use it against Dushka nests (it can kill the gunner), Quads and in other scenarios where bullet-based weapons are involved.

Maybe because it is sometimes hard to pronounce russian words properly and clearly understand their meaning for non-russian people? Same reason for non-chinese names i think.

Reporting name.
I.e. it was named "Grizzly" by the outsiders, while inside the RF AF it may be simply called BTR-55.

In fact, it has no nickname in Russia, because RF army doesn,t use BTR-T: it was rejected soon after its creation, and now all existing machines are being used only in training.

There is already a BMP - and between the two the designs are pretty much just the turret. This lets the two to be much more distinct ingame.

BMPT actually means Fighting Vehicle for Supporting Tanks (Боевая Машина Поддержки Танков) while BMP = simply Infantry Fighting Vehicle, BTW.

Also, if I remember correctly, "Terminator" is not official machine's name. The official one is "Frame" ("Рамка" in russian), or something like that.

So a troop carrier that can't carry an effective amount of troops, a recon vehicle (when a conscript is inside) that's too conspicuous for reconnaissance, a quasi-tank with tinfoil armor, yet can have enough firepower to raze a city block to dust. It's Russia's version of the Bradly; they even it made just as schizophrenic.

Except its armor well surpasses tinfoil level. Machine guns have absolutely nothing on this.
It's not really recon, just stealth detection. BMP's are too squishy and Conscripts die too easilly.

I believe it's just and equivalent of NATO codenames. Like Mi-24 is called "Hind" by NATO, while Russian name is "Krokodil" (Crocodile). Same for Flankers, Frogfoots etc. But still strange that the AA infantry is still called "Igla", not "SA-#I forgot the number#"
Also, the Russian names are not that much of a pronouncing problem. Arma 3 didn't have much problems with "Barsuks" and "Kamyshs" for that OPFOR faction. (I think they were Arabs or something like that)

Igla is russian for needle, so i guess that that's the name of the weapon theyr carrying.

You are correct, "Igla" is the official name for the MANPADS system.

Geez, that's not what I meant.
Everything except Igla and Buratino is called by it's NATO classification.
Igla and Buratino are the only unit/weapon the somehow is called by it's original name. (excluding production only names like MSTA-S, AK-74 and so on)
By your logic it would be appropriate to call "Frogfoot" "Grach" for example.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

If I understand that right from Wikipedia, then the Buratino doesn't actually have a NATO reporting name to begin with. Generally though most units in the Russian arsenal will receive names that are actually pronouncable, rather than the BMP-BMD-BTR-whathaveyou naming scheme that is currently in place. Which is why the BTR-T, which incidentially also doesn't have a NATO reporting name, is called the Grizzly.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes
TypicalRussianIvan

Well, yes, my mistake. But Igla still does.
I'll go for Medved, Grach and other names that may be hard to pronounce, but I see now way how BMP/BMD/BTR are less pronouncable than IFV/APC and so on.
I don't want to say that that I don't like your naming scheme, after all Act of War used same thing and it wasn't bad. It's just my personal opinion that ethnical naming system sounds more epic, like, you know, Arab words for Arabs, Japanese for Japan...
Still, Object 279 also doesn't have NATO reporting name, but it's Golem anyway.
But wh cares about names, naturally. As long as models are good, everything is excellent.

One of the Hind's select quotes in-game is "Crocodile standing by."

My guess is the Grizzly will call itself by its original Russian name/number when speaking, thus covering both bases.

It looks so odd though, that they severly reduced the troop compartment on this APC. Granted I do get it because of cost reduction etc. , but still it just looks odd.

By the way how much does one of these units cost ingame?

Description

By 2049, the Russian Ground Forces had suffered severe casualties in its fleet of armored vehicles. In order to halt the relentless Euro/American advance into Germany, Russia retrofitted old T-55 tanks and transformed them into cheap armored personell carriers called the BTR-55 Grizzly. The Grizzly sports a 30 mm auto-cannon that can be further supplemented with a Kornet anti-tank missile once Assault Armaments has been unlocked, however the compressed space of the T-55 means the Grizzly can only transport two passengers.
