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.
A renowned hero within the Russian armed forces, Boris uses his powerful RPG-29 to burst through enemy armor with ease. When infantry comes into his sight he can easily switch to his Makarov Pistol to pick out the threat. Boris is also equipped with a laser designator to call in air strikes to soften hardened positions.
