Hi. I want to add a new side to Genrals that would fit in with the story line. Since the GLA is a militant all-Muslim (i assume) faction, I thought it would make sense to have a Catholic faction as well. :) Of course, it goes against the Catholic religion to fight. Unless the pope sees its just. The story is that the GLA destroyed all churches in the Middle East, and in retaliation, the pope formed the CPA, Catholic People's Army to aid the USA in stomping out the GLA, once and for all. The new side has the best infantry, but lags behind in vehicles. Anyway, here are my unit ideas:
F-16v2 Super Falcon: all-purpose fighter between F-22 and MiG.
Sniper: like a pathfinder, but uncamoflauged and requires only advanced tech center
Irish Commando: hardened by civil unrest with the orange (protestants in Ireland), these units use two high-powered submachine guns and are the best non-hero infantry in the game. They also use hand grenades to destroy vehicles and a powerfull plastic explosive five times better than c4 rumored to be under devolopement to destroy buildings. However, the max build limit is 4.
Scott O'Ryan: leader of the Irish commandos. He is far more expensive then the other heroes and can swim (like tanya in RA2). He alone can preform a Builing Sweep, which kills all units in the targeted building (not a garrisoned) this makes that building neutral. :naughty: However, the ability takes 5 minutes to reload (so he can 'get his gear together') and he is uncamoflauged for 60 seconds.
Striker: the basic anti armor infantry. Each missile is slightly more powerful then the Missile Defender. No special ability.
Trench digger: digs a trench for free. Infantry inside trench are only hittable when they shoot. Can also build a trench hospital, which speaks for itself.
Bulldozer: You have one guess.
Ill notify you when I think up more, especially the basic infantry and tanks.
Hi again. I decided that changing the Ranger falsh-bang to a phosphorous grenade would explain the deaths of infantry. Still thinking of new infantry, and I'll get my screenname in service soon. I would appreciate it if you could tell me how 2 mod myself, THX
OK. I thought of some new units.
China Trenchstormer: a unit designed specifically to jumpdown into trenches. Has a flamethrower weapon.
USA add the carpetbomb Mob Control: like the POW truck, but blasts music to overwhelm mobs
GLA Militiaman: trains twice as fast as rebel and has half of health
CPA Otto McAnnick: second hero. Temporarily disables any non moving vehicle. Peace Protesters: like Angry Mob. They heave stones instead of bombs and ammunition.
Just a reminder that I need the very best modders.

think of balancing man u get all these infantry that are better than every other infantry in the game
Thanks for the wake up call, mamphis new unit ideas: GLA Deathsquad- same abilities as toxin tractor, but cheaper. Strike Van: Finds stealth units and deploys a band of stealth rebels to destroy infantry and RPGs to kill vehicles.
China add a Colonel Burton gun to Troop Transport, raise cost slightly Bomblayer:new truck lays a small Nuke and is stealth
USA: Commanches are stealth, like the real thing. Blackhawk: troop transport with a minigun on the side. Pathfinders can shoot from the air and can still detect stealth units. Abrams: Advanced tank, high armor and attack with a machine gun on top. Costs $2000.
CPA Otto is no longer a unit No more trench hospital
any ideas anyone has have are welcome
Some building ideas SAM site: Bosnian missile system. Only targets aircraft.
Howitzer gun: Ground defense gun that fires a fast shell, like the one from the Strategy Center. Slow reload.
You may take any idea from this page if for some some reason you want. :)

Nice unit ideas, but you should probably try and make some of the easier ones first. As for your story. I'm sorry, but I had to lmao when I heard Pope's army. The pope would not create and army and even if he wanted to he would not have the power, support or money to do so. Especially not to get those units :D and especially with a lot of countries laws that say the church must remain seperate from state and especially in todays society. And for your information Catholics and Muslims do a LOT fighting TODAY in many countries throughout the middle east and africa. Neither the Catholic or Muslim religions are about killing or violence yet people will twist a religion to support their ideals or battles. It has always been done and always will be done. I have heard many many times even George Bush say that "we" must pray that the American soldiers do they're job well (which happens to be killing people) and without any casualties. Polititans and other power seekers always know that people have a soft spot for religion and sometimes are often willing to do the strangest things in the name of it. Anyways best of luck on your editing, but I suggest trying to make a new side :D
Thank you for the info, man. I am VERY outdated about my own religion. Oh, the Catholic Pope may still call for a crusade, but the ammount of faith has dwindled to a depressing level. No one will respond. Ill think of something else.
