Fractured Realms is a mod for OpenRA, created by members of the French CnCSaga Community. The background story is taking place in a far future, where remnants of the ancient Federation are fighting against their former colonies over the control of a powerful resource called "Diastim". 3 factions will be available: the brutal Red Alliance, the fanatical Order of the Baneslayer and the mysterious Conclave of Horizon. New factions, units and terrain assets will be progressively implemented.

The Heavy Air Support Unit of the Red Alliance


Chimera voxel

Is it a bird... Is it a plane... It’s a flying tank!


Faction: Red Alliance

Unit type: Tier 2 Air Support Unit

Good versus: Light and Heavy Vehicles

Bad versus: Aircraft


The Chimera is basically what you get when a tank and a chopper meet and have a child.

The “finest” gunship of the Red Alliance, the Chimera is a flying mastodon that is armed with a dual high-caliber revolver cannon and can completely annihilate enemy armored columns in mere seconds.

Heavily armored, it can take a lot of punishment and must absolutely not be underestimated. Loved and revered by Red Alliance forces for its reliance and resilience, it has earned the nickname “Flying Fortress” amongst the Alliance’s pilots.

Gameplay-wise, this aircraft has about the same firepower and resilience as an average tank. It also has quite a good moving speed making it the ideal quick response support unit. While it can be considered as the perfect counter against vehicles, it fares quite poorly against structures and infantry (especially en masse).

Not enough anti-air units? How unfortunate~

Basically a flying tank. Very convenient and fun to use! This unit saved me quite a lot of time and the game isn't even out yet.
