Project Phantom is a total conversion mod for C&C Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge powered by Ares DLL. Set in a world where course of history took a different turn and sciece has elevated to previously attainabe heights, three factions engage in a conflict that will change the fate of the world.
Researches or 'technology branches' enable you to influence what sort of vehicles, infantry, structures and abilities you have access to during a game. Each faction has two available research options. You select a research option to purchase and place it anywhere on the battlefield when ready. You cannot change the research option once you've chosen one.
'Airforce': Air-based abilities & units that are suitable for direct attacks, at the cost of decreased versatility in arsenal.
'Adaptability': Versatile, multi-purpose equipment that comes at cost of vastly decreased specialization.
'Heavy Assault': Raw firepower & heavy armour with excellent direct assault capability but poor array of special abilities.
'Special Weapons': Brute force sacrificed for unorthodox weapons & tactics, including psionics, mind control, disruption weapons and chemical warfare.
'Experimental Technology': Bleeding edge technology & weapons that are powerful, but also put the user at disadvantage either due to cost or unfortunate side effects.
'Subversive': Covert warfare elements such as stealth camouflage and disruptive weaponry like EMP, and some fast 'hit and run'-type units. Ambush capability comes at cost of decreased armor and/or firepower.
