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

Avenger

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

Motor Bike:

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.

Battle Bus

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

Helix 2

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.

Banshee

Description: The Banshee is much like the Microwave tank apart from it fires a laser which disables units and not defenses.

-----------------------------------------------------------

UPGRADES

USA upgrades

Infantry Chemical suits

Description: This suit will protect all usa infantry from toxin / anthrax attacks.

Supply Lines

Description: This will increase USA's money income.

China Upgrades

NONE CONFIRMED

GLA upgrades

Shoes

Description: No point really just stops the worker from moaning and makes him move faster.

---------------------------- BUILDINGS

USA new Buildings

Firebase

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

Internet Center

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!!!

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...

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....

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.
