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.

Welcome back to an other update of Rise of the Reds.
In this update we are presenting you the two new drones for our revision of the USA Vanguard infantry.


With the success of the Cypher support drone, a even more lightweight drone was commissioned for infantry fire support. The AQ-51 Dragonfly is an ultra-light weight combat UAV capable of being deployed in the field at the squad level. Using a tri-rotor design, the inexpensive Dragonfly is armed with two Pike 40mm laser-guided rockets. Due to the low cost and light weight of the munitions, the AQ-51 can be easily restocked in the field by allied troops.


The latest in area denial weaponry, the M20 "Rolling Ricky" is an infantry deployable smart mine used by the United States Armed Forces, designed to supplement the M15 and M19 anti-tank mines and M2 SLAM. Despite its disposable nature, the mine drone is capable of quickly distinguishing between enemy and allied vehicles and can roll towards a target to disable or destroy it via detonation of the 10 kg of IMX-101 based shaped charge high explosive within the mine's shell. Should the enemy evade its sight, the mine drone will replant itself and wait for another hostile to enter its detection range, as long as its battery still holds charge.

The attack drone is purely a visual update while the Mine Drone is new and will be replacing the scout/recon drone the vanguard previously had.


Both of these drones were designed by Ingram (IPS) you can view his concept art for both of them here (or simply click on the image above)

Are you kidding me! This kind of stuff requires love for your own creation, which in turn gives that creation soul! You can see it in every unit in, every building, in every click that you do in the mod for this game!
The games that EA makes these days...have nothing even resembling this! They are in the truest meaning of the words "A Soulless Corporate Entity". Don't expect anything good to come out of them from this point on!

i wonder if they do feel low and ashamed when they see how much a small community can do more than their big company! and also in less time! not to mention the massive amount of cash EA get for just selling us a CRAPPY game!
i mean like EA vs SWR production... and EA have nothing to say in any of the aspects...

It was before that tho it was mostly crap with RA3 unmodding and making TW/KW modding a pain.

Modding TW is at least somewhat possible. RA3 meanwhile does what it's supposed to do and absolutely nothing else.

ever since CNC4?! dude CNC3 was a crap if it wasnt because of great modding community! i mean CNC3 was NOTHING close to tiberium universe, they did remove EVERY aspect of Tiberium universe that made it awesome by westwood! they just cloned generals with some crappy new designs!
EA games are nothing if modders dont touch them! the only decent STR game that EA made which i suspect had hands of some westwood staff on it was generals! and nothing else

Funny how GDI at least got an explanation (as silly as it was) for why they ditched walkers but Nod didn't get anything explaining their technological regression... Then C&C 4 went overboard and somehow managed to suck the fun out of things that were awesome in TS. :/

I don't know when but pretty sure there was a momentum when EA finally changed from "Electronic Arts" to "Evil Alliance", from giving the real virtual pleasure for gamers to creating stuffs for 'robbing' our money legally.

The game has detected a mismatch. This means multiplayer game has lost
data synchronization between players.

Boats only exist in maps with large body of water, but before that you need to download those maps from "Addon" page on ROTR ModDB...

i think vanguard needs a drone wich fire bullets like the eca when the infantry comes close their vehicles and move these drones missiles to javelin teams, that will make vanguard more better against infantry and javelin counter better vehicles.
