I have some information on the new addon coming out fall 2003.Some of this will change and more will be added because lots more have still to be confirmed.
USA New Units
Destroyer (SP Only)
Description: The destroyer will provide fire support for you during the single player campaign from it you can request a naval bombardment.
Aircraft Carrier (SP Only)
Description: The aircraft carrier is another support vessel during the USA single player campaign, the aircraft carrier is like a floating air field but can house upto 20 raptors and the few people who have seen it in game say its absolutely massive!
Sentry Drone (spy unit) Microwave Tank
Description: The Microwave tank is a new support unit for the USA, the tank is much like the Chinese Banshee but instead of disabling units the Microwave tank can disable enemy defenses
Description: The Avenger is a fast jeep type unit which can laser tag targets for air strikes and also shoot down enemy SAM missiles.
AC130 Spectre gunship:
Description: The Spectre is basically a C130 cargo plane fitted out with a load of cool toys. The AC130 can devastate the area of ground below it in a matter of seconds. It is currently believed this will be a generals ability like the A10's.
B2 stealth bomber
This provides stealth attacks.
GLA New Units
Description: The GLA's new unit is the motor bike, the motor bike is fast but very lightly armored. You can load any infantry you want onto the bike but once they leave the motorbike will blow up.
A GLA converted school bus. Can hold alot of gla soldiers. Will come in handy when online if parked next to alot of normal school buses and will be able to ambush them altho not stealth.
China New Units
Description: The Helix 2 is Chinas new air unit, the Helix works bit like a flying overlord tank as you can build new structures on top of it such as gattling guns, battle bunkers etc.
Description: The Banshee is much like the Microwave tank apart from it fires a laser which disables units and not defenses.
Infantry Chemical suits
Description: This suit will protect all usa infantry from toxin / anthrax attacks.
Description: This will increase USA's money income.
Description: No point really just stops the worker from moaning and makes him move faster.
USA new Buildings
Description: The FireBase is a new defensive structure for the USA, the Firebase is equipped with a Howitzer gun (probably much like the one on the strat center) and also 5 positions for infantry to man meaning you can make combinations of infantry to provide the best defense.
China new Buildings
Description: The Internet center when occupied by hackers will increase the amount of money they produce. It also allows the player to hack into Satellites to either reveal the area around all their opponents command centers or to reveal all the enemies on the map.
GLA new Buildings
Sneak Attack Tunnel
Description: The sneak attack Tunnel works much like the Tunnel network apart from it can be constructed quickly anywhere on the map without a worker meaning you can build it in the middle of a enemy base.
As you can see this addon will own because this isnt even nearly the best of it... 9 NEW ARMIES!!!
Tech Buildings addeD:
Description: Capture this structure to receive regular reinforcements
Description: The Howitzer tech building is a stationary Howitzer much like the USA firebase one. Capture this to wreak havoc on advancing forces.
I think we can assume a few more things....
1. there must be new mission sets due to new armies...
More updates coming soon

The 'new armies' are just different generals you can select for each side, as it was originally supposed to be in Generals. Did you honestly think they would add 9 new sides? Some of the people around here...
9 new sides...
ea said nine new sides like uk,germans russia ETC
I think it is very unlikely that there will be nine new sides. As Silver correctly points out, Generals was initially supposed to feature nine distinct Generals with different abilities.
As each exsisting side has approx. 15 units and 10 structures you would be talking about adding over 200 new items to the game!!
That's not an expansion pack.....
It's a new game!!!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but it had to be said....

HAVE A LOOK AT THIS!!!!!

So its going to be like ProGen? Ive read in various previews that some of the new generals are going to be: US Air Force (can build "King Raptors"), China Nuke commander (nukes you quickly and often) And a GLA general that specialises in sneek attacks, using tunnel networks and stuff.
