The GLA have captured this train in bishkek and they are using it to move troops. The chinese army can not abide this and so they have committed to a bold strategy of blowing up some rail lines.

This poo poo is heavily fortified.

Just one problem with the plan, the chinese have no command center in the region. They have black lotus and they have the buildings they need to make tanks and such but they have no way of providing income for themselves. All they've got are the tons of UN humanitarian aid money sitting in boxes just outside of their base. And a dream.

On the right there that blue box is the UN humanitarian aid money.

reignofevil

Also they've got those hackers. But that money won't ever be enough to fund a whole war effort unless you had way more of them.

Just in case there was any doubt who put the money there or what they put it in there for.

So this dragon tank gets built with the UN money and used to keep the bridge safe in a way that requires very little attention on the part of the person who is in charge of the battle. It creates a WALL OF FIRE right at the bridge. Won't work on most humans but it does great against the AI apparently.

As you can see finances are in a grim spot. All the convenient funds that had been just abandoned in valleys and such right near the chinese base are exhausted and now compromises have to be made. Specifically the civilians can flee in terror as we compromise their food and medical supplies into being tanks now.

All that money goes into the STRIKE FORCE

Just as the strike force finishes mowing down some GLA soldiers and pushes north into the city WHAT'S THIS? Word comes out from our advisor! The sports stadium has been co-opted by the GLA into producing endless swarms of angry mobs! The only way to stop it is to destroy the stadium!

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




And it's true! It's all true! Highlighted in red are the horrible GLA mobs! In gold is just a normal law abiding citizen

Some interesting facts about the CNC Generals engine:

1) After a cutscene your soldiers all forget their orders. Hackers stop hacking. Dragon tanks stop doing the wall of fire.

The angry mob gets destroyed by the chinese gattling tanks. It's not even a contest. But the stadium has other defenses!

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




Like stinger sites! And more innocent civilians fleeing for their lives!

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




poo poo gets real though when scorpion tanks engage.

You can see the STRIKE FORCE was almost distracted from their goal of burning down the stadium.

Why are Kyrgyz soccer fans so angry?

As an angry mob of football fans is met by a fire spewing napalm tank as another dragon tank simultaneously takes out an armed defensive emplacement I can't help but feel very safe on this day from all and any terrorists!

The angry citizens of Bitchkek are operating trains. This alone makes them ripe for destruction.

A more protracted tank battle unfolds in the city.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


In red on the bottom right is a Marauder tank. It's a kinda cool tank! You rarely see them because they cost generals points to use but they have some neat abilities like:

1) They get stronger as you kill vehicles.

2) Their upgrades eventually lead to a second barrel making them a poor mans overlord

3) They can get anthrax rounds

Okay that's about it! This one isn't doing any of that.

The strike force barely survives the fight but it does win it, right up until this terrorist parked in a lot with all the other cars starts up his engine and drives straight into the oncoming chinese gattling tanks. The strike force is nearly ruined.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




Those that survived the suicide bomber soon find themselves being gunned upon by another group of scorpion tanks. The lone dragon tank who sat behind to torch the stadium is slowly being gunned down by the sheer masses of angry football fans pouring out. Things look grim for the chinese army!

reignofevil

The dragon tank wins its engagement. The strike force does not.

reignofevil

The dragon tank keeps trying to kill the football stadium. The rest of the chinese army has pretty much been blown to smithereens. They are rebuilding from zero.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


The dragon tank destroys 90% of the soccer stadium but stops just short of demolishing it because more scorpion tanks showed up to blow some poo poo up. So instead the whole chinese army retreated back to their base and then regrouped at a southeastern bridge

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




The new plan is Black Lotus and whatever the commander can throw together are gonna charge across the bridge and take on the less well defended GLA assets. Black lotus can steal money and buildings so theoretically this could work very well.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


Black lotus captures that arms dealer then the commander decides what he really needs is instead of more soldiers he needs an expensive upgrade to gattling cannons of all types.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




Mostly infantry being brought in from the trains at regular intervals stand between the Strike Force 2 and the supply depot. The gattling tank makes quick work of them. Black lotus begins stealing money from the GLA supply coffers.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


GLA workers get press ganged into service by the chinese forces so they can buy more GLA radar vans at the chinese arms dealer in a surprising twist.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


The chinese forces are just one bridge away from victory but on the other side of that bridge is a fleet of scorpion tanks and that has them very sheepish regarding another face to face.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




Eventually the Strike Force 2 gets its courage up and crosses over and there are a ton of potential options for it to try and shoot at!

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


Just one problem. Directly to the south? It's those fuckin tanks. The ones that hosed up the STRIKE FORCE 1!

Everybody just holds tight while those dicks patrol their way back into the fog of war. Now the chinese forces being manufactured back at the base and the Strike Force 2 are able to meet back up into one giant scorpion tank killing fist

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




Meet THE FIST, it's a lot like the STRIKE FORCE but nothing like the Strike Force 2.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008


The fist uses the fact that scorpion tank armor melts under sustained fire and they easily take out another six scorpion tanks and a marauder tank.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008




The commander drives THE FIST directly into its own hard counter, THE ROCKET LAUNCHER EMPLACEMENTS and it gets hosed up pretty bad.

reignofevil
Nov 7, 2008





In the end it was a lone dragon tank who took down the last of the GLA defenses and allowed for Black Lotus to reach her goal, the train full of people she was about to derail.
