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.
In keeping with the ECA's doctrine of fortifications and mobile defence, the Vehicle Digout is a simple battlefield contraption that can be set up with the help of an Excavator. Once established, it provides additional protection for European Leopards and Gepards.
