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.

I thought MSTA was an acronym for something.

Almost all Soviet and Russian self propelled artillery, particularly the guns, seem to have a name of some sort in addition to the GRAU index (2S19 'Msta', in this case).

Guess it makes them easier on the memory.

Namings of models and types of weapons in Russia are usually made ​​in accordance with one of the established traditions:
- by name of scientific work, competition or will of designer
- by letter of modification (S-200V "Vega")
- by abbreviation ("Nona" - Novoe Orudie Nazemnoi Artillerii (New Weapon of Ground Artillery))
- by logic of series (usually self-propelled artillery has flower names like "Tulpan" or "Pion", MRLS - disaster series "Hail", "Tornado", "Hurricane")
- associatively ("Midges" radio jammer or "Arrow" MANPADs, system of distant mine disarming "Path")
- humor (thermobaric MRLS "Buratino" (russian Pinnochio), handcuffs "Tenderness", stun grenade "Ecstasy", chemical warhead "Caress")
- in a name of creators (T-90 "Vladimir", AA system Antei-2500 (ALmaz-Antei Facility))
- by features (ERA "Contact", jumping grenade VOG-25P "Jumper" (can be also translated as "foundling" - humor part again))

Can't remember any humor in western weapons. Western designers like to give scary and powerful names to their creations.

Some Eastern especially Asian military creations also have their names often based on geographic locations or animals and dates. Like the Chinese Type 69 MBT for the year of introduction. Small arms are often named after their purpose and manufacturer. Unlike the West or Russia improvements or upgraded version have "G" (Gai) added to the name. Asian military naming is also much simpler.

Well, it's quite simple to understand Russian system.

Let's take simple one: 1K17 "Szhatie" (Compression) - mobile laser complex for destruction of electronic optical devices on MSTA-S chassis. 1K - complexes, 17 is a serial number of production facility, but for understanding it has a name "Compression" - everybody will get what it is, serial number is for documents.
Or Su-35 - Su - Sukhoi - developer, 35 - serial number of jet line.
Let's take for example something hard: 15E601 "Perimeter" - complex of automatic control system of massive nuclear retaliation. 15E - designation for operational systems of control and communication of strategic missile forces, 601 - serial number of system (there are 600 more devices, prototypes or not, for missile forces for sure, then), "Perimeter" - nickname for common or work purposes.

Everything is according to logic. You just have to sort all these things somehow (if we take in count all these enormous numbers of serial models and prototypes of all military devices).

He meant USA made helicopters, like Apache or Comanche, or Iroquois (aka Huey).
While you have mentioned NATO reporting names for russian-made choppers: Havok is Mi-28, Halo - Mi-26, Hip - Mi-8/Mi-17, and I don't remember Haze.

It should have 12 wheels instead 10, 6 on each side. TOS-1 has the same chassis problem.

And I have a question about voices. Can/will you bring back those awesome russian voices from beta version? Russians speak Russian, not english... Just make a patch for those, who understand russian language. Voices from red alert are stupid.

(sorry for my incorrect english)

Description

Named after the eponymous river in western Russia, the Msta-S is the self-propelled version of a 152mm howitzer that was introduced in the late 1980s. Its high explosive shells are powerful enough to hammer any opponent into submission within a few moments but the vehicle's greatest claim to fame lies in its rarer variant, the Koalitsiya-SV, which is fitted with an 'over-and-under' dual cannon that increases the Msta's otherwise mediocre rate of fire to downright frightening levels.
