Post news Report RSS Russian Hardware Redux, Part I

Well, Future Warfare is apparently having some technical difficulties and since we want to spare you folks an even lengthier commercial break until it continues, we shall use this opportunity to present you a whole bunch of visual overhauls to Russian structures and vehicles. Most of the old models and textures have been around since the very first SWR release of ROTR and a few of them just haven't aged particularly well, especially compared to the more detailed ECA stuff.

Well, Future Warfare is apparently having some technical difficulties and since we want to spare you folks an even lengthier commercial break until it continues, we shall use this opportunity to present you a whole bunch of visual overhauls to Russian structures and vehicles. Most of the old models and textures have been around since the very first SWR release of ROTR and a few of them just haven't aged particularly well, especially compared to the more detailed ECA stuff. Follow us through this little four part series of mini-updates and take a look at the improvements.

Russian Buratino (update)

Even though it is technically a multiple launch rocket system, the TOS-1, comically dubbed the Buratino by the Russian military, is actually a large, mobile flamethrower. The vehicle packs a total of 38 launch barrels, each one armed with a powerful 220mm thermobaric rocket. This allows the Buratino to lay down a rapid barrage of fuel-air explosives that incinerate enemy light vehicles and foot soldiers, including those who seek shelter inside a fortified position.

Msta-S (update)

Named after the eponymous river in western Russia, the Msta-S is the self-propelled version of a 152mm howitzer that was introduced in the late 1980s. Its high explosive shells are powerful enough to hammer any opponent into submission within a few moments but the vehicle's greatest claim to fame lies in its rarer variant, the Koalitsiya-SV, which is fitted with an 'over-and-under' dual cannon that increases the Msta's otherwise mediocre rate of fire to downright frightening levels.

That new Msta cannon looks awesome. I hope some new sound effects will be added to match it.

would new voices also count?...I mean ECA's unit voices are sooo cool as well and russians seem a little corny now compared to them...

We made our own voice overs for the ECA, we have voice actors and wrote them ourselves. This goes for the General power call ins and other voices.

We plan on doing the same with the Russians and replace all of the Red Alert voice overs with our own =)

I quite liked the Kirov voice over on the Frogfoot bomber though... "I can see my house from here" "I Have something for them." "Gonna pay em a little visit." It worked so well, given the destruction that the frogfoot put out. Awesome mod guys, please keep going.

Man, if everyone put half as much effort into their mods as SWR does for their unit voices, moddb would be a much happier place.
