Subfaction-specific T1 infantry is nothing more than a pointless gimmick.That will never materialise.
Looking at list of what to add, I'd say the Russian faction don't have a unique infantry unit like the Chinese or Latin Confederation. How about a something like an improved/better version of a Conscript? Something like this:
Has increased range and damage compared to the Conscript with it's AKM rifle. It's HP is slightly better but not much.
Also, I guess this has been thrown around a lot by some community members but I find the Russians not having a heavy T3 tank compared to the Chinese a little out of place? I would suggest giving them the Apocalypse tank back, not the 3.0 version but 2.0 as while it was powerful it could still be overwhelmed easily. Plus the 2.0 version fitted the aesthetic of the real life IS-2 heavy tank from world war 2 with a mammoth tank makeover. If there needs to be a limitation to it for balancing reasons how about requiring the War Factory, Palace and Industrial Plant?
The one in 3.0 could still be the secret stolen tech one but labelled as a Prototype?
I'm gonna look for other things to suggest but as always these kinds of things can be shot down by the MO team due to balancing, time constraints or development time required for them. Either way I'm loving the game and appreciate mods like this that keep C&C alive!
As for the Apoc,please no.Russia does not need it all in it's tech tree.
Really?That is practically the last thing Russia needs now.You know how powerful it feels while playing.This proposed Spetznaz will simply make it broken.
Well from what I wrote I guess I'm suggesting a buff to Russia but I was going in the direction of just adding a new unit.
The RA3 style Tesla Trooper would be cool but what about a Spetsnaz unit? I think in 1.2 it had them but they were pretty much a Seal clone? If for uniqueness it has an assault rifle/grenade launcher similar to the Chinese cyborgs but not as powerful, they can swim and for attacking buildings they call in airstrikes like Boris/Morelez but like they were in OG YR game and not one hit kills and needs to be closer unlike Morelez. Could play around in the lore that Morelez was trained by Spetsnaz that's why their similar somewhat.
Also in matches/skirmish is it possible to have an option for basic superweapons only like Iron Curtain or Chronosphere? If it's not a pain to code?
Also,this reminds me of a discussion me and my pals were having a couple of days ago.A few fellas said that EA could be given Special Forces units like the Jegertröppen.The rest of us found the idea to be crazy,cuz EA right now is simply nuts.
