The Allies and the Soviets have rearmed with new weapons of war, each poised to destroy the other. Two ideological opponents, eight world powers, only one world to command and conquer.

The reason why the Cryo Legionnaire has reworked into Cryo Warrior because the Legionnaires themselves were stated to come from either the USA or Europe since this unit is exclusive to Japan.

All pretty solid changes, I really like the Harvester idea it's neato.

I'm not sure if the Plague Strike thematically fits with Japan, though. I guess I'd have to look into the lore you have in mind to be sure about that.

The Plague Strike is kinda referenced to the 1995 Tokyo subway sarin attack that was committed by Aum Shinrikyo. Anyways it is NOT related to this support power.

Also is the Iron Grunt can be controlled or an automatic AI unit that is similar to the Repair and Seeker Bots?

I tried it last time, it's a regular playable unit with the Empire of the Rising Sun Ore Collector's voice quotes.

Description

Next patch, the Empire of Japan is one of the countries to get some adjustment.

-- New T2 power: Iron Grunt. Calls in a paradrop of this heavy miner / repair vehicle combo, excellent at boosting the economy, safely harvesting distant ore and supporting troops on the frontline.

-- Cryo Legionnaire has been reworked into the Cryo Warrior. The old beam weapon has been replaced with a grenade-like projectile that releases freezing clouds on impact, further damaging units in the area. It is now primarily anti-infantry and less effective vs other targets.

-- New structure, the Research Institute. This replaces the Science Lab as T4 provider for Japan. It houses dangerous chemicals used in the Plague Strike support power, and also launches the missile which delivers it.

-- New power, Plague Strike. Infects units with a "plague" that damages them down to a minimum of 1% health, softening up the target to be destroyed by the main army. Furthermore, the infection can spread from one unit to another, increasing the potential damage massively. The plague will never directly kill any affected unit.
