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 Eurocopter EC640 is a light-weight helicopter primarily designed by French engineers. Specifically conceived as a patrol reconnaissance and AWACS aircraft, it is equipped with a sophisticated sensor pod that houses a variety of passive and active radar systems and infra-red cameras. Once deployed from a Region or Field Command, the helicopter will automatically patrol around its parent structure in an extensive circle, providing radar coverage to European forces and detecting any concealed intruder, vehicle or structure inside the base perimeter. Upon detection, the helicopter will remain hovering above the suspect and keep it in its sights until ground elements reach the site to resolve the situation by any means necessary.
