Greetings GenX fans
It's been WAAY too long since our last update so let's cut the small talk and dive right into it
NEW PATRIOT MISSILE BATTERY
The Patriot missile has always been the primary air defense missile of the US army. However in recent years the patriot has been modified to also attack ground found following the recent GLA threat.
Even today, patriot missiles are still capable of taking down targets swiftly and precisely. However it's launcher, which was specifically designed to be mobile, simply lacked proper protection from direct attack. On top of this, the patriot still had to be manually reloaded by removing it's expended launch tubes and replacing them with new ones.
The US military needed a more permanent solution, and ZTech Industries seems to have brought exactly that. The new design features a sturdier frame with all it's components hidden inside or under the launcher for better protection. One of the biggest advantages of the new launcher is it's ability to reload itself.
After expending it's current payload it will tilt it's launcher upwards 90 degrees untill the back part of the launcher meets up with the top of the base. New missiles will then be loaded from a secret chamber underground.
Aside from a shiny new model, the patriot also got upgraded internally. It can now target and shoot targets from behind other patriots, making it's assisted targeting ability a hell lot more effective.
The patriot has also received more visuals, shown above is it's new assisted targeting effect.
NEW GLA UNIT VISUALS
The toxin tractor now has proper salvage visuals. The un-upgraded model has 2 tiny toxin barrels, at 1st salvage the barrels get bigger, then at 2nd salvage it gets a third barrel at the back. The barrels also change color depending on the type of toxin.
Next up Thrax's scud launcher
not much to say here, I gave the missiles a new texture that resembles the bio-baikanour rocket from the ZH campaign. I also edited the missile support a bit.
NEW ANTHRAX FIELD VISUALS
"nothing can live beneath my toxin cloud, general" - credits to Ion Cannon for the smoke effects
NEW CYBER ATTACK GEN POWER
It's a replacement for the old EMP bomb for China. I dunno about you guys but the EMP bomb to me seems boring. So I decided to replace it with this:
Basically does the same thing as the EMP bomb, but it's no longer plane dropped, and it disables things continously for a certain period of time meaning while the skull is there anything that enters the field gets disabled.
Well that's it for this month, cya next time
