As with the other GLA vehicles, the Observation Van has been given a neat visual update as well.


the SCUD Storm missiles have been as of a recent internal update also been tweaked to look more interesting.l


The GLA Interceptor has been given a complete visual overhaul as well. Formerly based on a fictitious concept, it is now modelled after the Su-17 'Fitter' which was exported to Soviet client states in Africa and the Middle East. The new Interceptor will also be functionally different in that its default armament now consists of two externally mounted 30mm autocannons and UB-32 rocket pods. The rocket pods can be replaced with guided missiles for precision strikes or free-fall bombs for high-explosive area damage.

As always, we would like to remind all of you out there that there will be another stream on this Sunday:

Countdown until the stream starts

Also, in case you missed last week's stream, you can check it out on our Youtube channel here

Interesting choice of SU-17, but I think it should be called "GLA "Fighter-bomber".

Yeah, but Interceptor sounds more interesting. I do like the new design though.

As the post states, this is "a recent internal update," which means that none of the recent content is publicly available. Those of us like you and me (on the outside, not part of the ROTR internal testing group) just need to be patient. They will release the next public build when they do, and then we will all get to play with the new cool toys!

The ROTR team has been amazing about continuing to plug away and work at the mod with an incredible level of attention to detail, so I predict that it will be worth the wait, and trust that the new version will come sooner rather than never.

You might want to just wait until 1.85 to come out. It comes with SWR net, which will make online multiplayer easier to set up, rather try and figure which of the many services are currently used by the most players.

The name "interceptor" doesn't really fit the Plane's role anymore lol..

well we can just keep it since the GLA prrooaably doesn't really know that much of a difference between aircraft roles lol

I'm sure someone in their ranks does. If they're a global terrorism group, someone would discover it.
But I can see what you mean. Doesn't look very... interceptory. Then again, neither did the MiG-25 xD

A large, mostly stationary airforce made up of fixed wing fighter craft would not fit with GLA doctrine, not to mention the... attention, that would be paid to a GLA fighter base. They are mobile enough without an airforce, and besides, aircraft are not their forte, in-game anyway. That's where the US comes in.

I saw those Interceptors during a stream; good stuff, really looking forward to manhandling those poor pilots with my "superior" GLA airforce tactics.

Good luck against Harriers and Raptors xD. Harriers are so cheap able to reload on the fly. My raptors fly off and the harriers are chasing with a full payload.
