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.
The People’s Liberation Air Force understands the importance of aerial warfare. While they diversified their air power, the Hellfire MiG was developed. It has become China’s first choice quick-strike bomber, while maintaining fighter-like speed and maneuverability.
Their low technology and simple avionics make an aircraft that is cheap to build and simple to pilot. Their payload is two unguided napalm bombs that can create firestorms in enough numbers. Though it’s capable of engaging in air-to-air combat with the proper ammunitions, the politics of the People’s Republic require the air-to-air duties be carried out by another aircraft.
