CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and it features realistic units from the 80's.
We want CWC to be a mixture of realism and fun. CWC is more realistic than vanilla Generals, with real life weapon systems and side specific characteristics.
CWC offers 2 factions: Russia and USA. The Russians tend to use tanks and artillery (for example: T-72 / T-80, BM-21, 2S1 only to mention a few) while the USA rely on aircraft and high tech units (for example: F-15, F-16, F-117, A-10 etc.).

Also we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder. So engaging a T-80UK with a US Rifleman won't be a good idea. Other infantry units can be a real pain in the ass to armoured units though. We want the players to use more infantry than in regular Generals, where infantry wasn't the big deal. In CWC Infantry can be very useful, even against tanks if you have LAW/RPG-Soldiers.

FYI for those getting the missing "ssleay32.dll" error. I figured out the fix for this is to copy the file contents of the "Core" folder in the zero hour directory into the CWC folder (the same folder the CWC launcher is in).

Hope this helps someone.

Anyone knows how to make these anti air vehicles M-48 Chaparral in the US and SA-11 in Russia can fire the aircrafts??????They’re not actually working when I updated to the newest patch.

Knowing this mod from the latest file (map generator and its source code). Started playing the mod and love to play it, expect having trouble and difficulty to play it at first time (new, different mechanic) but I'm still learning to play it (by the manuals)

It's too sad that this mod isn't enough popular (maybe, I don't know/new to this mod) but i just want to say this:

TRULY AWESOME! ONE OF THE BEST MOD I HAVE PLAYED BEFORE.

I don't know if the developer are still maintaining or supporting this mod, but this mod is look very polished with the feel like Army Men RTS and Company of Heroes games and looks very different from any ZH mod I have played before. And hope that the developer team are still supporting or maintaining the mod.

Considering how long it's been since the developers posted any new content, they probably aren't going to see this. However, if they do or if someone out there who is good at modding takes interest, I have a suggestion. There should be an addon pack that includes a few more factions that are relevant to this time period, like Afghanistan, England, Israel, etc.
I absolutely love this mod and have been playing it for years but I would like to see something new.

This mod is how Generals should have been. The quality of the work done in CWC is remarkable. I followed this mod ever since I first saw it in 2005, the first things that caught my eye was BMPs floating on water, just like in real life. The only game I had seen that in was Operation Flashpoint. So began a long wait, I visited the CWC website every week looking for updates, and every time there was an update it gave me a smile. I eventually registered at the CWC forums and posted a few posts. My…
