Post news RSS The Soviet Armament

Now for the Soviet! All units, buildings and superweapons for the vanilla Soviet forces, without country-specific units.

Posted by on

Welcome back!

In RA20XX, the Soviet take a lot of inspiration from RA1. The reds reintegrate RA1's technology, most notably their usage of flamethrowers, mine layers and helicopter, while doubling down on their post-WWII industrial style (exemple : Flak Track and Katyusha). Overall, they are a balanced mix of RA1 and RA2's Soviet, excluding the weirder (and also useless) units design, like the Crazy Ivan or the Giant Squid. But for the purist, the most important thing to keep in mind is that RA20XX brings back their most iconic unit : the infamous Mammoth Tank!

==========Allied Update==========
That covers it for the Soviet forces. The navy will be revealed much later, in part with the Allied's. But this update is not finished yet! There has been a few modifications to the Allied since the last update.

First of all, the European Union's flag as been changed. It now reference Generals 2's EU. As the subfaction in RA20XX is inspired, in part, by this faction, it seemed justified to have similar flag.

Since the Pacific Shogunate's techtree is still being worked on, the Orca Hunter's voxel was changed.

So that is all for now! Next, I'll be showcasing the Soviet subfaction's armament.

Untill next time.
