    Kane and all his bald glory. Anyway, this is my 62th guide, I'm starting to

    Anyway, there are a lot of differences in this game compared to other C&C 
    games, but there is a tutorial for a reason. Anyway, time to command and 
    conquer the enemy.

    [2.01] Beginning of the End
    
    "Commander, the activation of the final Tiberium Control Network Node has 
     drawn dignitaries to New Adana from around the globe. Your assignment is to 
     escort one such VIP into the city. Be alert, GDI InOps are reporting 
     increased Nod seperatist activity in the surrounding area."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Locate VIP
     2 - Locate Deploy Zone
     3 - Meet Up with VIP
     4 - Escort the Convoy
    
    
    This is the tutorial mission, and this is just to get you started with the
    game and the new interface, which is pretty easy to get a handle of, it is 
    nothing too hard. Anyway, this is simple, and if you fail this mission, you
    might as well sell this game on eBay because you are going to have a lot more
    difficulties ahead.
    
    Anyway, this is to get adjusted to the camera controls, by locating the VIP,
    and next, by locating the deployment zone. This zone is where your Crawlers
    will drop on the map, and depending on the zone, can or cannot be taken over
    by the enemy. 
    
    Anyway, it is time to deploy some troops, so you are going to have to deploy
    some Wolf units, which are gun type units. There are three different types of
    units, gun types units, which are good against lightly armoured units such as
    infantry, cannon type units, which are good against medium armoured units, 
    such as a normal tank, and laser type units, which are good against very 
    heavily armoured units, such as a Mammoth Tank. 
    
    There are other types of weapons as well, blast based weapons are good against
    structures, and rocket type weapons are good against enemy aircraft. As such,
    there are 3 main types of armour in the game, the heavily, the more damage
    they can sustain, except to their weakness. Light armour means that the unit
    will be pretty easy to kill off, such as light vehicles or infantry, mainly
    through guns. Medium armour means that they can take some punishment, but 
    cannon fire can punch holes through that, and medium armoured units are your
    main battle tanks. Heavy armour means that they can sustain a hell of a lot of
    punishment, but lasers, en masse, will destroy them, and these include your
    Mammoth Tanks and your Crawlers. 
    
    Anyway, get accustomed to this, because this is what you call the game 
    balance, the rock, paper, scissors type gameplay, each unit has strengths and
    weaknesses. Though balance is not always achieved, that's the best you're 
    gonna get.
    
    Moving on, meet up with the VIP and you'll need to deploy some Hunter tanks,
    your standard, generic battle tank. This will help you defeat your enemies in
    their more armoured variety. With this, keep your units and Crawler moving 
    along with the VIP. 
    
    Finally, after taking out several waves of enemies, in which they are pretty
    damn weak, you will need to take out structures, so you will need your 
    Shockwave units, which are good against structures, and finish off all the
    rest, and the VIP will get to the target safely. 
    
    But as it turns out, the man you were guarding, it was....
    
    KANE.

    This mission is relatively simply, and this time, you will be using a 
    different Crawler. There are three different Crawlers in this game, the
    Offense Crawler, which concentrates on brute force with an army based 
    primarily on tanks. The Defence Crawler concentrates on a good defence,
    with buildable defences as well as infantry-based warfare. Finally, the
    Support Crawler focuses on aerial warfare, as well as mobility, and they
    have access to support powers on the battlefield.
    
    Anyway, you will learn the basics of defence warfare, so build the missle
    turret and bunker on the marker, you need to have it exact or it will
    not register. Anyway, when you are done with building the structures, 
    garrison the bunker with some infantry.
    
    For this mission, you will want a decent mix between Zone Troopers, Raiders
    and Enforcers, with some Engineers to heal your infantry. This will be a
    decent attack force, and enough to destroy the enemies on this map. 
    
    Now, move your infantry to collect the upgrade crystal, and then use your
    forces to capture the Uplink Tower, and move your Crawler there, whilst
    you send off your infantry to destroy the tunnel networks that the Nod
    seperatists have built around the area. With that out of the way, you need
    to move your troops to the TCN node.
    
    With your current forces, you should be able to take out the Nod forces around
    the TCN node. You should start with the bunkers with infantry inside, your
    own infantry with engineers to heal them will make mince meat of the little
    Nod guys inside them. Then, take out the Nod Crawler, in order to prevent them
    from sending out more weenies for you to kill, and finally, take control of 
    the TCN node. That should do it for this mission.

    [2.03] Hard Choices
    
    "Commander, long range sensors have detected Gideon's forces inbound on the
     Scrin Tower Research Centre. Both General-Secretary Rios and Kane are 
     currently on-site at this facility. This puts the stability of the GDI
     council in grave danger. You will be assisting Colonel James in securing
     the area and keeping our leaders safe."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Repair Defence Base
     2 - Help Colonel James Destroy Nod Tunnel Network
     3 - Eliminate Remaining Nod Forces
     4 - Redeploy as a GDI Defence Crawler to Reinforce the Area
    
    
    This is a simple enough mission, you will start off as the support class, with
    your own Support Crawler. There is a GDI base here, but you will need to 
    create some Spanner units, which are flying repair units, to repair the 
    damaged base defences. Use these guys to repair the structures that are 
    under Nod fire, ignoring the other structures that aren't being attacked. 
    
    When Colonel James turns up, she will go and try to attack the Nod tunnel
    networks in the area, but that is of no use, you can just easily go and 
    use your new ability, the Firehawk Airstrike to blow up the tunnel networks,
    without you having to do anything by yourself. This makes your life that
    much easier. With these tunnel networks out of the way, you will need to
    take out the remaining Nod forces in this area.
    
    With this, you will need to deploy some Orca aircraft through your Support
    Crawler, and with this, you can use them to bomb the crap out of the Nod
    forces, or you can just send in some more Firehawk Airstrikes to finish off
    the rest of the Nod forces, either way, get rid of the enemy. 
    
    Finally, you will need to move your Support Crawler and capture the Uplink
    Tower that the Nod forces have just left behind, as well as the husk of an
    Avatar walker. Your main aim is to capture the husk, and with that, you
    will need to get the Defence Crawler. First off, you will need to 
    decommission the existing Support Crawler, and now drop a Defence Crawler
    instead. Train the engineer and capture the Avatar.
    
    And finally, you will need to build some bunkers to reinforce the area, and
    this is pretty easy. But after this, you will need to choose your side,
    which team would you side with, GDI or Nod? I will tell you that it is 
    easier to play with GDI first, because the Nod story relies quite a lot on
    events on what happened in the GDI story, and the story behind the story.

    [3.01] Spontaneous Outburst
    
    "Gideon has used lies and propaganda to create frenzy among his followers. 
     Now they are rioting throughout New Adana and it surrounding suburbs. 
     Citizens are being evacuated, but the seperatists are appear to be targeting
     the Civilian Evacuation Centres. Your assignment, Commander, is to reclaim
     New Adana and protect its citizens."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Secure the Evacuation Centres
     2 - Defend the Fleeing Refugee Trucks
    
    For this mission, I do prefer the Defence Crawler for the entire mission, 
    because of the power that infantry can project and how they can hold a 
    position well.
    
    First, you need to secure the evacuation centres, and these are under attack
    by the Nod seperatists, which are just lightly armoured infantry units that
    are armed with molotov cocktails. They aren't dangerous, but the problem is 
    that they are in numbers. Fortunately for you, they are busy burning the 
    buildings in New Adana to actually concentrate on firing at you.
    
    With this, you will need a fair amount of Zone Enforcers, where their guns 
    will make a nice mince out of the seperatists since they are good against
    infantry, but it won't hurt to add a few Raiders and Troopers into that 
    lovely mix, supported by the Crawler and Engineers to heal your troops. 
    But don't fill out your command point limit just yet. You will need a few 
    more Raiders than Troopers, there are going to be enemy air units, and your
    Enforcers can do some pretty good damage against air units.
    
    Move onto the evacuation centres, it is relatively easy, there are few Nod
    seperatists in the area, but your main concern are the Basilisks that are
    flying units, so your Raiders and Enforcers will need to focus on these
    pesky units, whilst your Troopers keep your forces safe from the infantry 
    units running about. Move from one centre to the next, and soon, when they are
    all cleared, you will need to protect the refugee trucks. 
    
    When the trucks arrive, almost south of where the trucks enter, Nod aircraft
    will attack, primarily in Venoms with a few Cobras mixed in, but with your
    forces, this is nothing they cannot handle. What is going to be hard is the
    mix of tanks and infantry that they will send midway down the road, and this
    is ideally where you will want to deploy your Crawler. Here, train some 
    Zone Lancers and deploy them in their mini-structure, as well as building
    some missile turrets and some bunkers to keep your infantry safe. 
    
    South, near the end of the road, Nod forces will consist of tanks, so you
    will want to move your Zone Troopers and an Engineer or two south, clear out
    the tanks, whilst your Raiders, Enforcers and Lancers will hold the line on
    the road. The trucks have a fair bit of health, but the main reason you want
    your Crawler deployed and engineers in the middle of the road is to remove
    the main thrust of the enemy's attack, and to heal the vehicles. Even if your
    Zone Troopers fail to properly eliminate the Nod vehicles at the end of the
    road, they shouldn't be able to completely destroy the truck. 
    
    You will need to have 12 trucks reach the end, and there are an infinite
    supply of trucks, but who wants to spend days trying to finish this mission?
    Anyway, time to move on to the next mission.

    [3.02] Cold Hard Truth
    
    "SigOps has tracked Kane's transport to the Arctic Hub. This Hub appears to
     be emitting a unique signal, similar to the ones detected at New Adana and
     the Scrin Tower. Colonel James believes this is our chance to find the
     truth behind Kane's plan. We just need to get inside the structure and 
     analyse the data ourselves. Unfortunately, there are two Nod splinter groups
     fighting for control of the Hub who aren't going to make this easy."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Get an Engineer into Satellite Relay
     2 - Defend Satellite Relay
    
    
     - Bonus Objective - 
    
     1 - Eliminate DIG teams
    
    This isn't an easy mission, not by any stretch, and you will need to get some
    getting used to in this mission. I will suggest that you use the Defence 
    Crawler here, because there is one major threat to tank forces, the Cyborg
    Commando, which can hijack vehicles, and that air units will suffer heavily
    against enemy defences here. 
    
    Now, first, when you deploy, land on the enemy vehicles if you can, or you 
    can just destroy them with some Zone Troopers. Now, first thing is that you
    will want to move south, to the edge of the map, and there is a Mastadon
    Walker. This is one husk that you want to capture with an Engineer. Now, use
    your Mastadon to eliminate the northern dig team and capture the Mammoth
    Tank husk. This is important, you want Mastadons and Mammoths here, this 
    mission will require that.
    
    Move your Mammoth and Mastadon near the southern dig site, and eliminate the
    infantry guarding the husk here, and capture the second Mammoth. Now you have
    2 Mammoth Tanks and a Mastadon. This will make things easy for you, and it
    will be easier still if you get all 3 units to heroic levels (star), and 
    upgrade them with Blue Tiberium Crates, which will give them both upgraded
    rocket pods. Now, down the ramp from the second husk, there is going to be
    a Nod Crawler.
    
    This crawler is the offence type, and it will send Avatars and the Cyborg
    Commando against you. Commando you will need to destroy with Zone Enforcers,
    which will shred him when he gets to the hijacking stage. Nothing is worse
    than losing a Heroic Mammoth or Mastadon. Avatars, capture the husks with 
    your excess Engineers, and now you have a powerful force. Destroy the Nod
    Crawler here. 
    
    Now, you have 2 Mammoth Tanks, a Mastadon, and some Avatars. Now, assault
    the Nod defence here. It should be easy to take down the enemy, a Mastadon
    will destroy the Crawler from range, and the Mammoth and Avatar army will
    easily knock out the enemy tanks here. With this, capture the Relay, and
    now you will need to pump out your defences.
    
    Build locks of Missile Turrets, the enemy will spam air units at you, and
    this is important, it will act as a very good decoy, the enemy air units
    will target the turrets first, whilst your Avatars, Mammoths and Mastadon
    can knock them back with their rockets, whilst you can pump out Zone Raiders
    and Enforcers to push them back even more. 
    
    This is a hectic few minutes, but if you managed to get this far, it should
    be very, very easy. Just spam Missile Turrets, and that should be it for 
    you. If your Relay takes a bit of damage, send in an Engineer to repair
    the building, and that will repair the structure if things get too hectic
    for you. 
    
    This mission isn't hard, but if you manage to get the Mammoths, Mastadon and
    the Avatars, it should be much easier, you have the best of the best units
    that both sides have to offer. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [3.03] Transport Down
    
    "The GST appears to have crashed in an area known as "Tin City", home to 
     several tribes of the heavily mutated "Forgotten". They are unlikely to 
     welcome our presence here, so it would be wise for us to get the GST 
     airborne ASAP. We need to locate and rescue the GST's Engineering Corps, 
     whose escape pods are currently scattered across this territory. Once the 
     Corps are recovered, we can being repairing the GST."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Secure Escape Pods
     2 - Capture the Tiberium Control Nodes
     3 - Protect the Global Stratospheric Transport
    
    
    This mission is best done using the Offensive Crawler, you will want to
    push out a good mix of Titans, Hunters and Wolves here, this will be nice
    and quick, the first part anyway. 
    
    Move towards the first of the escape pods, and when you move towards the
    pods, you will see some Ironbacks and Scrapbuses, and these are relatively
    easy with your strike force, you have a good mix of Guns, Cannons and Lasers
    in your forces. This is pretty good, and when you capture the pod, some
    Engineers and some Zone Raiders will pop out. 
    
    Now, with your Engineers, besides repairing your strike force, which you
    should have 3 engineers for already, you will need to keep an eye on the
    Western and Eastern parts of the map, on the map are 2 Mastadon husks, and
    you will really want theses, so capture them, upgrade them to Heroic and
    give them the Blue Tiberium Upgrade. This is vital. It makes your life
    that much easier.
    
    Now, with your Mastadons, keep them next to your Crawler, which you should
    not move from the GST. With your strike force, clear out the rest of the
    pods and send the Raiders and Engineers back to the GST. Feel that this
    mission is far too easy? That's because it is, so now, Nod forces will
    deploy some Crawlers, and attempt to take the TCN nodes. 
    
    You need to capture the 3 Nodes, but the problem is that Nod will send 
    more forces to capture them ahead of you, and this is where your Strike
    Forces and Mastadons kick in. Your Mastadons need to find and destroy
    both Nod Crawlers, and use your Strike force to quickly take the Nodes, 
    with your Zone Raiders from the Pods to take the other pods, but retreat
    them if they catch too much flak. 
    
    You really need to destroy the Crawlers, and this is the reason for the
    upgrade, if they are both upgraded, they can take a lot of punishment and
    can dish out a world of hurt. Destroy the Crawlers, and capture the Nodes
    quickly. Now, it is time to defend the GST.
    
    Move your Strike force and Mastadons back to the GST. I suggest to have
    your Strike force to defend the GST from the West, and your Mastadons to
    defend from the East. Have your Engineers ready as well. 
    
    The Nod forces will send air units, which can be easily taken down, and 
    ground units. Air units are a problem, but nothing you can deal with from
    your Titans and your Wolves. Now, the enemy will send in Avatars, and this
    is what you will need your Engineers for, capture the Avatars and use them
    to replace your fallen units from your strike team, since Avatars are good
    against ground and air units. 
    
    Now, it's quite easy to destroy the enemy forces attacking on the GST, and
    if you get stuck on part of the mission, you will need to look at the enemy
    and it is probably air units that is causing the problem. The best thing to
    do is if you have a powerful enough defence, you can push your forces to 
    destroy the Nod Crawlers that are deploying the forces, and that will give
    you more reprive against the enemy forces attacking the GST. Once the GST
    is fully repaired, you finish the mission.

    [3.04] Insurrection
    
    "With Rios blind to Kane's plot, Colonel James has been forced to declare 
     martial law. We're sending a strike team to bring Rios into custody. You
     must lead an advance group to take down the city defences to clear the way
     for the strike team. The success of this mission depends on you."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Destroy 1 or more Defence Crawlers Before Strike Team Arrives
     2 - Guide Strike Team to GDI Central Command
    
    
     - Bonus Objectives - 
    
     1 - Destroy GDI Tunnels
    
    
    This mission isn't going to be fun, but if you are clever and tricky, you can
    make it pretty easy. Now, first, deploy as the Support Crawler, and deploy
    5 Orcas immediately. You can use them to destroy the first two crawlers, the
    south-western and south-eastern Crawlers. Then build some nominal troops,
    some Hurricanes mainly, to defend your crawler, since they are defence 
    crawlers and they do deploy infantry.
    
    Now, use the Orcas to attack the Missile Turrets first, destroy them in hit
    and runs, unload all the missiles, and then flee the area, using your support
    healing powers to repair them, and then rinse and repeat with using Orcas to
    unload the missiles. When the two southern missile turrets are knocked out of
    the race, unleash hell on the Crawlers, since the infantry won't attack the
    Orcas.
    
    Start with the south-western one, and for your effects, you will get some Zone
    Raiders for your troubles. You will want all 4 Crawlers down, because it is 
    the most important buildup you can get for the second part of the mission. 
    Now, do what you did for the first Crawler to the second Crawler, again, with
    your hit and run Orca strikes. The second Crawler down will provide you with
    2 Refractors, which aren't that useful on this mission.
    
    Now, the third Crawler, the north-eastern Crawler, is quite hard, since there 
    is a shield around it, but again, take down the Missile Turrets, and then 
    you will have an easy time against the Crawler, although you will need to 
    unleash a few more missiles to ensure that the shield goes down before you
    can damage the Crawler. For your efforts, you will get 2 Mastadons, and this
    is the most important part.
    
    Boost up your Mastadons, and then move them to attack the 4 Crawler, and they
    will mop the floor with everything in its way, their shockwave attack is 
    deadly against enemy infantry, and the fact that they can damage from a range
    is a massive advantage. You will really want all the Crawlers down. There are
    two reasons, it will power down the defences around the GDI Central Command,
    which is a major advantage, and the second is that the elimination of the 4th
    Crawler will grant you the most important unit you could possibly want, the
    Thunderhead, which, in its aerial mode, it will obliberate air units.
    
    Now, time to escort the strike team. If you have eliminated the 4 Crawlers,
    you will need to face 8 Kodiak airships, and this is why you will want to have
    Thunderheads at the ready, they will make mince of the air units, and the
    Mastadons will easily destroy the defences, and this mission only requires
    you to move your transport to the command centre. 
    
    Even the bonus objective is useless, a Mastadon will get rid of a tunnel
    network like shooting fish in a barrel with a minigun. If you take out the
    Crawlers, rather than knocking out one and letting it be, you will make your
    second objective that much easier.

    [3.05] Lockdown
    
    "The GST will be on lockdown at this Supermax facility until a docking
     station becomes available at GDI Central; we will have a limited window of
     escape. Agent Duquette has put a handful of loyal GDI infantry at our
     disposal. Use them to capture an Uplink Tower so we can deploy a Crawler in
     the area. Then establish a battle ready force to take down the Supermax
     tractor beams. We must move quickly, Commander, there is little time left."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Capture Uplink Tower
     2 - Use Engineers to Deactivate Tractor Beam Power Generators
    
    
     - Bonus Objective - 
    
     1 - Destroy Motor Vehicle Pool
    
    
    The beginning part of this mission is the hardest part of this game, and
    that's saying something. You will have a small squad of infantry, but luckily
    for you, you will have some Engineers with you, so use them to heal your
    infantry who are busy killing off the enemy infantry. Your Zone Enforcers
    will be important here, since they are decent against infantry.
    
    Now, deploy the Support Crawler, this is useful because of their mobility,
    which is relatively useful here. First, you will want to deploy some Orcas
    to remove the motor pool that is there, which is pretty simple since they
    don't attack. When they are all done killing off the vehicles, decommission
    them, since they aren't that useful in the game.
    
    Now, you need to take down the tractor beams. You need to know that you
    don't need Engineers, you will need to take down the defences around the power
    generators, and then an Engineer will drop from the sky, and allow you to
    take the power generator without having to spend command points.
    
    The best units in this game is a combination of Hammerheads and Firehawks. The
    enemy is playing with a defensive crawler, which is evident from the amount
    of infantry on the map, and there are plenty of missile turrets around here.
    Firehawks will be able to hit and run the missile turrets very effectively
    without taking out too much damage, and Hammerheads have some powerful 
    gattling guns, which make mince out of infantry.
    
    Now, this is pretty rinse and repeat, you need to use your Firehawks to
    bomb the living daylights of the turrets, and the Hammerheads to follow up
    and clear anything else in the path. If you really want to speed things up,
    you can send a strike force of 3 Sheppard Tanks, not as good as Commander
    Shepard, a one man army, but useful to take down the turrets if you don't
    want to use Firehawks.
    
    This mission is pretty easy, as long as you don't screw up the first part,
    the enemy doesn't really send in much at you, and if things do get too hectic
    from a few Zone infantry units, you can just spawn 3 Hurricanes and blitz
    the enemy. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [3.06] To Kill a Prophet
    
    "Our sources indicate that Kane is preparing to give a speech to the crowds 
     massing around the Scrin Tower. Colonel James believes this is our one chance
     to eliminate the Nod leader and put an end to his plans. she herself will 
     be pulling the trigger - she is already on site in a customised battle suit.
     We need to make sure the Colonel makes it in and out safely."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Escort Colonel James to Sniper Spot
     2 - Protect Base
     3 - Escort Colonel James to Second Sniper Spot
     4 - Activate TCN Node
    
    
    This mission is where you should be using the Offensive Crawler, this is 
    one mission where you will be in constant contact with the enemy. Now, build
    up a strike team of Hunters and Titans, it is a powerful force, able to remove
    Medium and Heavy armour units with relative easy. You don't need a very 
    powerful force, but you will need to support them with a large group of
    Engineers.
    
    Now, when you encounter the Nod Crawler, this is the reason for the Titans,
    lasers will make quicker work of the heavy armour than the Cannon from the
    Hunters. Make sure to have your Engineers up close to your tanks so you will
    have them repaired. Demolish the Crawler, and move into the base, whilst 
    James will restores power. 
    
    Now, the Nod forces will attack in three seperate waves. The first waves will
    consist of Centurions, which are medium armoured units, but that have a shield
    on, but if you manage to attack from the back, it will bypass their shield, so
    if you are good at flanking, you can take down the enemy pretty damn quickly,
    which is nice.
    
    The second wave will be of Flame Tanks and Black Hand infantry, which need to
    be up close and personal to do any damage, but they will be dishing out damage
    if they get close, so don't let them and remove the from the face of the 
    Earth. They are also pretty easy to remove, but the next wave will be hard.
    
    The final wave will consist of Avatars and Widows, which will leave behind
    husks, the reason for the large group of Engineers. You don't want the Widows,
    they aren't that powerful, but do take the Avatars, you will want those, so
    capture them. Make sure that you still have Engineers, you need a mobile 
    repair force and your Crawler isn't a very good repairing unit.
    
    Move quickly, you still have a time limit, and James will need to move to 
    another sniper spot, seeing that she can't get a good enough spot here. Now,
    move quickly and briskly with the Avatars with your strike force in tow. Use
    them to demolish the enemy tanks, and upgrade the Avatars with Green and Blue
    crates, this will make them very, very powerful. 
    
    After demolishing the various amounts of Nod forces, attacking in tanks, 
    easily demolished with Avatars, Hunters and Titans. When you get to the tunnel
    networks employed by Nod forces, demolish them, and move onto the second
    sniper spot. 
    
    When James is ready to take out the prophet with her sniper rifle, you will 
    need to move to capture the TCN node. This is where the GDI reinforcements
    come in, providing you with a nice distraction, but still, move all of your
    forces to the TCN node.
    
    The TCN node is protected by a Nod Crawler, as well as powerful defence 
    structures. The Avatars, with Engineers that will be extremely useful to
    repair your Avatars, will be able to knock out defences if they are fully
    upgraded, if you do what I always tell you to do, and do so without sustaining
    too much damage.
    
    With the structures out of the way, you need to destroy the little gnats that
    are gnawing away at your health, which are enemy units, and remove them, before
    taking on the enemy Crawler, and capturing the Node. It isn't hard, but it 
    isn't easy either, so basically, brute force is the only way to capture the
    node, and keep your own Crawler close, this way, you will be able to have a 
    steady stream of reinforcements, and can send in your own Engineers to 
    recapture the husks if they fall.

    [3.07] For All Humanity
    
    "With no confirmed kill on Kane, we must assume that his plan to reactivate 
     the Scrin Tower is still a go. Colonel James needs you to gain access to the

     need to recapture this area before entering the tower. Commander ...  This

     2 - Deploy your Crawler at the base of the Scrin Tower and remain there
     3 - Survive until the timer expires
    
    
    Again, this is another mission where you should deploy the Offensive Crawler,
    and build up a group of Titans, Hunters and Wolves, again, supported by a 
    group of Engineers. Now, time to move onto the first Uplink Tower, and take
    down the structures in hit and run raids, so you can repair your forces if
    they take too much damage. Much sure that you collect all the Red Tiberium
    Crystal upgrades along the way, this is important, since you will want to
    upgrade all the units along the way. 
    
    After taking down the first uplink tower, which is easy, you will want to
    make a slow and steady advance. You want to advance with your strike team
    in the lead, followed by your Engineers, with your Crawler bringing up
    the rear. After the reinforcements arrive from the First Uplink, a group of
    Spartan Tanks, but decommission them, you don't need these tanks at all, 
    you have your own offensive crawler-based tanks.
    
    Move slowly towards the second uplink, and it is important that you take
    the Mastadon husk along the way, Mastadons are only unlocked at level 20 
    for a reason, because they are very hard to take down, given that Commandos
    can no longer demolish walkers with ease. Capture all the Red Crystals along
    the way to unlock Tier 3 weaponry, and with this, train 3 Mammoths, even if
    this cames at the cost of your strike force, decommissioning Wolves and 
    Hunters, and some Titans if you need to. Upgrade the 3 Mammoths with the Green
    and Blue upgrades, as well as the upgrades from the upgrade tabs, which makes
    your Mammoths into deadly fighting machines. A Heroic Mammoth with upgraded
    Rocket pods can ruin anyone's day, let alone 3. Do the same with the Mastadon.
    
    Along the way to the second tower is a Nod offensive crawler, and that means
    a lot of tanks, which is isn't a problem, with Mammoths and Titans, you
    will be able to reliably demolish medium and heavily armoured units, and 
    guess what, that is exactly what the tanks are made of. Push your Titans,
    Mammoths and Mastadon forwards, keep them repaired with the Engineer and 
    demolish the Crawler. 
    
    With this, attack the second uplink tower, and at this stage, make sure that
    your Command points are full, and a spare engineer in your engineer group, for
    there is another Mammoth Husk to capture at the third uplink tower, but more
    on that later. Now, demolish the enemy here with your Mammoths, and this
    will be pretty easy, they are pretty powerful, and with the second uplink
    tower captured, you will get some Shockwaves. Again, you don't need them so
    you will need to decommission them to stop them taking up too many command
    points.
    
    Move your Mammoths forward, taking the Artillery Tower along the way, and 
    watch out for Venoms that will attack, but no worry, rocket pods will 
    easily remove Venoms, that and their attack on a Mammoth is little more than
    a slight tickle. Move towards the next tower, and you will be facing another
    Crawler, and given this is the last mission, it will spam missile turrets
    like crazy, so you might need to retreat your Mammoths for healing, whilst
    your Mastadon will be able to shockwave the Crawler from a safe distance.
    
    Demolish the defensive crawler, and move towards the third uplink tower.
    Capture the AA building along the way, and before you get the prize of the
    third uplink tower, you need to remove the final of the Nod crawlers, the
    support crawler. This is annoying, because of the air units that it will
    spam out, but with a spearhead of Mammoths and Titans, it will be able to
    hold its own against air units. Once you capture the third uplink tower,
    you will get some Sandstorms, and this will you need to keep.
    
    Move forwards, and demolish the support crawler. This will be hard, but
    concentrate on the Crawler, rather than the buzzing air units, because your
    units can take on the enemy air forces pretty easily. Demolish the air units,
    and now you will need to deploy your Crawler at the base of the Scrin Tower
    when all your units are ready to roll.
    
    And finally, the last part of the GDI campaign. You need to survive to
    Nod onslaught. Now, move your Mammoths facing the ramp, such at the enemy
    will be facing a group of angry looking Mammoths when they try to attack
    your crawler. This will block off the ground troops. Make sure that you
    have captured the AA tower, and now, move your Sandstorms to the front, as 
    well as your Titans, and move them towards the ledge.
    
    Nod will be firing tactical nukes at you, which will fly straight, and if
    they see units, it will attack the unit. AA turrets are effective at 
    removing the missiles before they get too close, as well as Sandstorms,
    and Titans are important, with accurate lasers, they can remove the nukes
    with ease.
    
    Move your engineers around, repairing the units that take hits from the
    nukes, a normal tank can take one hit, the Sandstorm will be sent to red
    health from a nuke hit, so you will need to repair them. A Mammoth may be
    tough, however, they will still get into critical health if you do not 
    protect them. 
    
    For now, just survive. Heal, kill, revive, just be crazy, and when you
    survive until the end of the timer, you have completed the mission, and
    you will be able to see the ending for the GDI campaign. For a full 
    synopsis, I will give a full story at the end of the Nod Campaign. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.01] Things Fall Apart
    
    "Welcome aboard, Commander. Kane has tasked you with tuning the New Adana
     TCN Hub to align its signal with that of the Scrin Tower. There are, however,
     some concerns; firstly, Gideon has roused his followers into a riotous 
     frenzy. GDI has these fanatics contained for now, but your interaction with
     the Hub is likely to knock our their defences. Secondly, your former
     Commanding Officer, Colonel James, is inbound on the city and unlikely to
     take kindly to your presence here. And finally, while we have detected 
     your wife's signature within the city, we cannot ascertain her position."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Capture TCN Hub
     2 - Escort Refugees
    
    
     - Bonus Objectives - 
    
     1 - Capture or Bypass Energy Gate
     2 - Destroy GDI Defences
    
    
    This isn't that hard of a mission, if you know the secret to the mission.
    First, build an Engineer, and where the Crawler deploys, there is a ramp
    down in towards the west, and down there, is a Mastadon Husk. This is 
    important, but and it doesn't matter which class you pick from hereon 
    out, but I prefer the Support Class for this mission.
    
    First, bring in some Cobra attack airships, and use them to move forwards
    and attack the energy gate to move forwards. Capturing it really isn't
    that hard, just send in your units to capture it. Towards the Hub, there 
    isn't really much in terms of GDI defences, there isn't much there. Some
    wolves and hunters will patrol the area, but really, not much in terms of
    defenders, as long as you have a powerful Mastadon at hand, and some
    Cobras. 
    
    Anyway, move towards the defence of the TCN Hub, and they consist of a few
    turrets, and there is a defence crawler there as well, which is a problem,
    but nothing a few Cobra strifes and a Mastadon cannot take care of, and 
    watch them burn. With them out of the way, the refugees will come out, and
    you will need to defend them.
    
    Note that the trucks will only move when the crawler is present, so you will
    want to move your Crawler slowly. First, move your powerful Mastadon towards
    the target, and there is a GDI offensive crawler, and that needs to be taken
    out, since that is the major threat at hand. Whilst your Mastadon is soloing
    the crawler, use your Cobras to guard the trucks.
    
    When the trucks reach the ramp, there will be Nod seperatists present and
    they will destroy a truck, you cannot lose anymore, so you will want to make
    sure that the area is cleared before moving your Crawler forward. This is
    where the Mastadon shines, their shockwave attack is powerful enough to clear
    out infantry in groups, so when the GDI presence is removed, use the powerful
    walker to clear out the groups of seperatists.
    
    Anyway, this is pretty easy when the guards, which consist of Cobras and any
    anti-infantry units are set to guard stance on the refugee trucks, this will
    be pretty easy. Make sure that you have some Engineers to repair the trucks
    if you come under fire, which isn't very likely. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.02] Further Complications
    
    "Our next task is to synchronise the Pacific Hub with the Scrin Tower, much
     as we did in New Adana. In response to the incident here, GDI Central
     Command has locked down the surrounding area around the Pacific Hub, 
     refusing entry to all parties. Gideon is using this to his advantage; we
     believe he aims to destroy the Hub altogether. We can't let this happen.
     It will not be simple, Commander, but Kane has faith in you."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Destroy TCN Hub
     2 - Destroy the Nod Seperatist Crawler
     3 - Disable 1 TCN Dampening Station
    
    
    This is one pretty simple mission, all you need is the Offensive Crawler and
    you will need a whole army of Avenger tanks. This is pretty simple, move 
    forwards with your tanks and make sure that you have your Crawlers supporting
    them, which is pretty important.
    
    Now, why this mission is easy, the seperatists will be attacking the GDI 
    forces defending the hub, as well as you. Now, they are attacking on the
    left front, and you should attack on the right flank, which makes your life
    a lot easier, since there are hardly any defenders. 
    
    With this, deploy your Crawler next to their Crawler, and then have your 
    tanks attack their crawler, but concentrate fire enemy units first, since
    they will be damaging your units, and not the Crawler, much. Destroy their
    crawler, and it will be pretty easy to eliminate the rest of the GDI forces
    and capture the Hub.
    
    With this done, you will need to move your next to the Hub, and let the Nod
    seperatist forces attack you, since the enemy does want that Hub as much as
    you do, which is a problem, but it works out for you. They will attack you
    and your deployed crawler, and with your tanks, eliminate the enemy with 
    extreme ease, but remember, target the enemy units first, since the enemy
    will be focussed on attacking you, and you really don't want to lose any
    powerful units, and take out the crawler when the units are down.
    
    With this out of the way, you need to destroy the dampening station, which
    are scattered around the map. It doesn't matter which one you are going to
    attack, you will need to move your forces, as well as your Crawler, to 
    attack the enemy entrenched there. Wipe out the enemy defences first, which
    are pretty damn easy, and them move onto the crawler, which eliminates the
    reinforcements that GDI may send in. 
    
    With the GDI defenders out of the way, destroy the tower, and that will
    finish the mission. This is pretty easy, just spam avenger tanks and use
    them, engineers to repair, and that is about it. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.03] The Harder They Fall
    
    "Colonel James has become a genuine threat to Kane's plans; she must be
     removed. Our sources inform us that her ship will soon be flying over the
     so-called "Tin City" mutant wasteland. Your mission is to intercept her ship
     and send it plummeting it to the Earth. One warning - we have detected GDI
     troop movements in the area. So be careful, the Colonel may be expecting us."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Prepare for GST Flyover
     2 - Eliminate GST
    
    
     - Bonus Objectives - 
    
     1 - Capture Anti-Air Structures
    
    
    Now, first of all, you need to know the GST flight path. It will fly down the
    middle of the map, from top to bottom, so it will be flying south. It is a 
    powerful unit with 30,000 health and heavy armour, so it is weak to lasers.
    That said, you will want to use the offensive crawler, this is paramount, they
    are the only class capable of using lasers in an offensive capacity.
    
    First, deploy Scorpion tanks, and them only. Sure, they cannot take that much
    damage and deal out damage to most units, since the enemy here is mainly 
    medium vehicles, and some structures. It is to your advantage to use what
    time you have here to deploy close to the middle of the map, to the top, 
    you may need to play the mission once to learn where the GST is, in order
    to bring it down. 
    
    Now, when you know where it is going to fly down, and the flight path, which
    is a straight diagonal line south, you will need to clear a straight line so
    no GDI structures will be in the way. This is important, they will be your
    primary obstacles in this mission. 
    
    This is where you will need to spam Scorpion tanks, you will need to have a 
    queue of them ready to rock when your current tanks get destroyed. With this,
    capture some AA turrets down where the GST will fly, but be careful, they
    are heavily guarded by GDI forces, so this is a problem, but on the bright
    side, the AA turrets aren't essential, but they will do some damage. 
    
    When the time goes to Zero and the GST comes in, you will need to attack the
    GST with your Scorpions from its maximum range. This is important, attack
    from maximum range, it will put your units away from the guards of Orcas and
    Hurricanes. Spam the enemy with your Scorpion tanks, and constantly move
    your Crawler back down the flight path, deploy new tanks when necessary. 
    
    With your units attacking the GST, you need to hope for the best, the Scorpion
    spam is probably one of the most effective methods, given that lasers are the
    best against the GST, and dish out heavy damage, and constantly move your 
    Scorpions back down the flight path to avoid them getting hit from the GDI
    reinforcements.
    
    The biggest threat to your Scorpions are the GDI Crawlers and defenders here,
    so you will need to avoid them. If you can, target the Spanners that the
    Crawler is deploying in order to avoid repairs for the GST. This will do 
    some damage in the long term, they cannot repair themselves. 
    
    The GST will spawn with Orcas, Hurricanes and Spanners, and when you drop the
    health down to 75%, then 50% and finally, 25%, it will spawn more Orcas, 
    Hurricanes and Spanners. There isn't much you can do to prevent this, except
    target the Spanners so that it cannot repair itself. 
    
    Alternative ways to finish this mission is to destroy the GDI Crawlers on the
    ground during your preparation time, which is important so you will not have
    to face some weenies on the ground. And you will have access to the the AA
    structures. 
    
    Another way is to play a mix of offence and defender, so that you will be 
    able get your Scorpion tanks, which is useful for taking down the GST, and
    you will be able to get your turrets up to target the supporting units that
    protect the GST, and the GST itself. However you do it, the GST isn't going
    to be easy to take down. It is one of the hardest missions in the game, 
    without exception.
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.04] Reversal of Fortune
    
    "with the murder of Dr. Pascal, Gideon has finally pushed Kane too far. 
     Gideon knows we are coming for himand will be ready with an ambush. But we
     have a trap of our own. We will find his Command Crawler and use our hackers
     to access his central database. With that, we will have the location of
     his base ... and the means to his undoing."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Protect Nod Shuttle
     2 - Use Crawler to Hack Gideon's Command Crawler
    
    
    Compared to the previous mission, this mission is so damn easy. The best is
    to play with the offensive class, and you will need 2 strike teams, a few
    Avenger tanks, and some Stealth Tanks. This will give you a good combination
    of attacks, avengers will take down enemy vehicles whilst your stealth tanks
    will provide you with some anti-air units. 
    
    This is pretty simple, you need to protect the shuttle, so you should task
    your avengers with the destruction of enemy tanks and your stealth tanks
    with the job of taking out enemy air units. Now, the thing is, the shuttle
    is pretty heavily armoured by itself, it can take a hell of a beating from
    the enemy without you needing to intervene to save it. In fact, the enemy
    poses a bigger threat to your Crawler, rather than the shuttle, but you
    should protect it, and moreover, use your destruction of enemy units in 
    order for upgrading your units.
    
    When you have protected the shuttle, you have a limited amount of time to
    hack Gideon's Crawler. This isn't that bad, but it is best if you have the
    Support Crawler for this part of the mission. You need to basically have
    your own Crawler very close to the enemy's crawler, so that the hackers on
    your Crawler can hack into the enemy's crawler, and when that bar is 
    complete, you will complete the mission.
    
    Take note that it is advised that you protect your crawler during the 
    second part of the mission, after all, the enemy is targeting your crawler
    as your crawler is targeting theirs. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.05] Heresy's Reward
    
    "We now have the location of Gideon's lair. Infiltrate the base and bring
     the wrath of Kane down upon him. But spare his life, for he has yet a role
     in Kane's grand plan. Force him to submit, so that his followers shall once
     again grant their allegiance to Kane."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Destroy Nod Barricades
     2 - Attack Gideon's Crawler Until He Submits
     3 - Prevent Gideon from Enabling Self-Destruct Stations
    
    
     - Bonus Objectives - 
    
     1 - Rescue Captured Nod Forces
     2 - Destroy Gideon's Crawler Army
    
    
    This is a pretty annoying and tough mission, so you will need a lot of
    brute force for this mission. You should deploy the Offensive structure for
    this mission, and start off with a mix of Scorpion Tanks and engineers. I
    prefer Scorpions since they are pretty powerful against heavy armour, and
    decent against buildings. 
    
    Now, there are prisoners of Gideon on this map, which are basically Nod
    forces which you will need your help. This is normally found in the little
    inlets, basically, move across the map and if you see Nod defence structures
    that aren't friendly, you know they are protecting something, so destroy the
    defences and rescue the Nod forces. 
    
    Your first mission is to destroy the Nod Barricades, this is pretty damn
    easy, but there are some defence structures, so you might want to eliminate
    them pretty quickly, so that you won't be wasting your valuable time for this
    riff raff.
    
    It is time to attack Gideon, but you really want to rescue all the captured
    Nod forces and to destroy Gideon's Crawler army. This is important, destroying
    the Crawler army will give you nice boosts, which include removing Gideon's 
    Laser Weapon for the Command Crawler, and the another is to remove the crystal
    shield that surrounds his Crawler. 
    
    There are 3 Crawlers in his army, the offensive crawler, which gives Gideon 
    his laser weapon, the defensive crawler, which provides Gideon with a crystal
    shield, and the support crawler, which gives Gideon a powerful regeneration
    by means of repair units. This provides you incentive to eliminate all three
    of his Crawlers in order to make him as weak as possible. 
    
    But, when you have destroyed 2 of his Crawlers, he will start to activate
    the self-destruct mechanisms. What this does is when he captures all 5, he
    will activate it and he will win the game, and you will lose, somehow through
    this magical ability. 
    
    Now, you should let him capture all BUT TWO of the mechanisms, do make sure
    that you have control of the western most station, and the closest station
    nearest to that one, which is close to a set of Nod prisoners. Move your
    Crawler and forces there in order to prevent Gideon from capturing either 
    of them. This will make sure that he will not activate the stations. 
    
    Make sure you have rescued all the prisoners, this is important, since these
    forces will now come back, as an entire army, to aim you in attacking 
    Gideon. This is invaluable, it will take a lot of pressure off you, and it
    will provide a valuable distraction from your forces. Make sure that all 3
    of Gideon's crawlers are out of the way, with this, we can finally take 
    out Gideon.
    
    Since you have control of two of the self-destruct mechanisms, you will be
    able to have a 50/50 chance of getting Gideon when he appears. When he
    does, attack him straight away, and if he isn't at the one you want, attack
    him quickly. This will make Gideon take on a fair amount of damage, and you
    will secure the station so your own Engineers can recapture the building.
    
    With this, you can easily destroy Gideon and capture his crawler. When you
    reduce his health down to about 3000, he will submit and he will stop his
    attacks, and give into Kane. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.06] Bleed Out
    
    "Commander, your life hangs in the balance - and with it, Kane's plan. Your
     new DNA will keep you alive for a short period of time, but you are not
     invincible. We have located a GDI Crawlerwith medical facilities that can
     sustain you until evacuation. Use your forces to capture it, then head to 
     the nearby airfield where you can make your escape."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Repair the GDI Crawler
     2 - Deploy the GDI Crawler next to Kane
     3 - Get Kane to the Extraction Zone
    
    
     - Bonus Objective - 
    
     1 - Kill the Sniper
     2 - Capture the Forgotten Farm
    
    
    You have an elite group of infantry, which makes your life easy already, 
    since this group has a squad of engineers here as well. This is pretty useful,
    attack the enemy GDI forces quickly, and use your Engineers to capture the
    Crawler, it is pretty easy.
    
    Now, move the Crawler back to where Kane is, and deploy your MCV there, it
    is quick and easy, but make sure that you deploy it on the marker, otherwise,
    the game will not register it. Now, when that is done, you will have the next
    part of the mission to go.
    
    It turns out, the IFF or Identification Friend or Foe, is bad with this
    Crawler, so you will need to destroy the Nod forces that are defending the
    airpad in order to get Kane to the helipad.
    
    It is now that the Bonus Objectives appear, but really, these don't have
    that big of an impact on the game, it is a waste of time really, but to kill
    the sniper, you will need to have quick units, the enemy sniper is a Zone
    Captain with a fair bit of speed. Meanwhile, the forgotten farm is pretty
    easy to knock out, with your Mammoth Tank. Visceroids are a problem, only
    to infantry. 
    
    Use your Crawler to deploy Titans, that are useful to take out the enemy
    Mammoth Tanks, and capture any Mammoth Husk that you can, in order to have
    access to the Mammoth Tank, and use any Red Tiberium Upgrades in order to
    boost the power of the Mammoth Tank. Make sure that they get to the Heroic
    level, as well as upgrading them with the Blue Tiberium Core.
    
    With Mammoths that are powerful and upgraded, you will be able to steamroll
    the enemy here. Just push through the Nod base here, with 3 Mammoths though,
    this is immensely easy, Mammoths will make sure work of the defending Nod
    forces. This mission is just the prelude to the hard mission that is 
    ahead, the final of the Nod missions, and the full story on Kane. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [4.07] The End of All Things
    
    "At last Commander, the endgame. It is time to bring the Scrin Tower to a 
     fully active state. But we must wrest control of the TCN from our GDI 
     "friends" first. Once we have the network at 100% synced activity, the   
     ascension will only be a matter of time. Be advised, however; we have 
     learned that GDI is sending new experimental vehicles to the area. We have
     no further details on the matter. Commander, this is Kane's final move. We
     must not fail."
    
     - Objectives - 
    
     1 - Gain Control of the TCN
     2 - Destroy the Bomber without losing TCN Control
    
    
    This isn't hard, but again, you will want the offensive crawler here, since
    that is the most powerful weapon you will have in the arsenal. First, deploy
    some Mantis tanks, as well as some Avenger tanks, this is basic and simple,
    as well as getting 3 Engineers. Next to the TCN nodes, there are 3 husks that
    you want to capture, there is a Mammoth Tank, an Avatar and a Mastadon. The
    Mammoth and Avatar are on the Western side of the TCN node valley, which you
    can get pretty easily, whereas the Mastadon is in the centre of the TCN node
    valley on the GDI or Eastern side. 
    
    Capture them, upgrade them, and boost them up. Now, capture the TCN nodes, to
    get the TCN control up to 100%, you need to have control of more TCN nodes 
    than the enemy. This is hard, there are a hell of a lot of enemy crawlers 
    here, actually, 3, an offensive, defensive and support Crawler. They will 
    seem to have an infinite amount of crawlers, but destroying the Crawlers
    will make it easier to capture the TCN node. 
    
    Whilst you are busy attacking the TCN nodes on the GDI side, you will hope
    that your allies are defending the TCN nodes on your side, and hopefully
    defending your nodes. You will be busy attacking the enemy here, and as 
    long as you get control of the majority of the TCN nodes, you will get that
    meter up to 100% eventually.
    
    The hard part will be destroy the Arcus bomber that the enemy will send at
    you when the TCN control belongs to you. This isn't hard if you know what
    you are doing. Let the Arcus take over one side of TCN nodes, probably the
    Nod side since your forces are on the GDI side, and send in your Scorpion
    Tanks that you still have to pester the Arcus. Compared to the GST ship, you
    are lucky that it doesn't repair itself.
    
    Now, brace yourself when it tries to land on the GDI side. This is important,
    for the Arcus to complete a bombing run of the TCN node, it will land on the
    ground, and it will make it a ground unit, and with a Mastadon, Mammoth and
    Avatar, fully upgraded with blue tiberium cores AND heroic status, it will
    dish out tons of damage. And best of all, it will try to take off and then
    reland, to no avail, but make sure that your units are out of bombing range.
    
    Destroy the GDI Arcus bomber, it isn't that hard, because of one simple thing,
    to lose TCN control, you need to lose ALL the TCN nodes, so you will be
    able to trap it around 1 single node. This is the key to the mission, and
    as long as you follow that, the Arcus bomber isn't as feared as it should
    be.

    [4.08] The Story of Kane
    
    So, what is the story of Kane, the man behind the Brotherhood of Nod? It is
    quite simple, he is not human. He is an alien, so to speak, he has been 
    stranded on Earth for a long period of time, at least before 1800 BCE, since
    that is the foundation of the Brotherhood of Nod. From what he said, when he
    arrived, humans are still in huts and caves, that would put him between 4000
    to 6000 BCE. 
    
    Kane was strained here with another traveller, a man named Abel, who Kane 
    killed, for reasons not clear. Given that Kane has ascended, we will not
    know. But what is clear is what Kane has done over the years, he has helped
    humanity develop to where they are now, he has provided the knowledge, the
    tools that uplifted them from the Stone Ages into the Modern Era in the matter
    of a few thousand years.
    
    He made his earliest known appearance in Red Alert, where he was an advisor
    to Stalin. Along with Naida, a NKVD officer, he was able to effectively
    guide the actions of the Soviet Union during the Second World War against the
    Allies. The Allies defeated the Soviets, however, Kane was no where to be
    found, after killing Nadia. He disappeared. Vanished. For now.
    
    The Brotherhood of Nod, under the leadership of Kane, remained hidden until
    1995, when Tiberium landed on Earth, and that became the turning point of 
    the Brotherhood of Nod, and when the history would change forever, and his
    grand plan for Ascension. 
    
    Between the end of the Second World War and 1995, Kane had been building up
    his influence in poorer nations, building up Brotherhood support, and with the
    discovery of Tiberium, the message to upturn the existing wealthy nations
    of the G8 nations. 
    
    With this, support grew for Nod, and Kane's knowledge about Tiberium made
    him powerful in the field of Tiberium Research, something the G8 nations were
    very interested in, and the purchase of technology about Tiberium from Kane
    made the Brotherhood wealthy. And with this, they built an army, whilst
    Kane remained elusive from various police forces.
    
    To counter the rising threat of the supranatural Brotherhood of Nod, the G8
    nations established the GDI, the Global Defence Initiative. This eventually
    lead to the First Tiberium War, where Nod fought GDI both in military 
    conflict, Tiberium research and most importantly, public opinion. 
    
    The turning point of the First Tiberium War was the reporting of the Bialystok
    Massacre, where a Nod reporter spread that the massacre was performed by
    GDI forces, which stopped all UN funding to GDI, and made GDI pretty much
    the most hated public figure, more than Nod.
    
    It appeared that Kane had succeeded, but this was all a ruse by GDI, where 
    Nod attacks on apparently empty GDI bases were repelled, and expelled from
    their base of operations. Meanwhile, Kane had problems of his own, his second
    in command, Seth, was secretly plotting the downfall of Kane, and in reply,
    Kane killed Seth. 
    
    Finally, GDI tracked Kane to Bosnia, and General Soloman (played by James Earl
    Jones!), lead GDI forces to the facility in which Kane was supposed to be in,
    but he was not, in fact, all GDI forces found were test subjects, and among
    them, an infant supersoldier, by the name of Michael McNeil. 
    
    When they finally found that Kane was in Temple Prime in Sarajevo, GDI 
    attacked immediately, and after a siege, destroyed the Temple with the Ion
    Cannon, however, Kane was not found, he was no where in sight. 
    
    With his apparent death, Kane remained underground, his face was scarred and
    he had to wait until it healed. For all intents and purposes, he cut off ties
    with the Brotherhood of Nod, which subsequently splintered into various 
    factions, the largest by a GDI puppet, Hassan, who was subsequently killed
    by the Commander of the Black Hand, Anton Slavik. This eventually led to the
    Second Tiberium War.
    
    During the war, Kane secured the Tacitus, which lead to further insights on
    Tiberium, as well as other areas, through Kane's translation of the device. 
    His knowledge from the Tacitus lead to the development of an world-altering
    missile, which was consequently destroyed by Michael McNeil, a former
    prisoner of Nod, and was impiled by McNeil.
    
    Meanwhile, Kane developed CABAL, an intelligent AI to help translate the
    Tacitus, and when the second apparent death of Kane, it placed Kane inside
    a statis tube until Kane completely regenerated. Meanwhile, CABAL went 
    rogue, when it was reactivated by GDI after its deactivated at the end of 
    the Second Tiberium War, it assassinated Tratos, the forgotten who was able
    to translate the Tacitus, as well as assassating the Nod Inner Circle, in 
    order to obtain the second part of the Tacitus. This forced Nod and GDI to
    develop an uneasy alliance to defeat the rogue AI.
    
    With CABAL going rogue, Kane developed LEGION, a new AI with information
    based off the Tactius, and it is through LEGION that Kane acted. Meanwhile,
    the biggest faction was lead by Marcion, after the assassination of Slavik, 
    who assumed control of the Black Hand. During the Rio Insurrection, Kane
    took control over the Black Hand, and used Marcion as a puppet until he was
    to reappear again. 
    
    Kane reannounced his appeared with the Third Tiberium War, by completely
    destroying the GDSS Philadelphia with nuclear weapons whilst Goddard Space
    Centre, in charge of ASAT defence of the Philiadelphia was offline. This 
    cut the top command of the Philiadelphia in a single swipe. Nod launched
    major attacks on GDI Blue Zones, zones with little Tiberum infestation, 
    but GDI, lead by General Granger, pushed Nod forces back all the way to
    Sarajevo, the home of the rebuilt Temple Prime.
    
    With collapse of Nod defences near, acting GDI Secretary, Redmond Boyle,
    order the use of the Ion Cannon against Temple Prime, and inadvertantly
    triggered a Liquid Tiberium detonation, which obliberated all forces in the
    area, as well as Eastern Europe's Yellow Zones. Kane seems to have been
    killed again, but again, not the case. 
    
    Meanwhile, with Kane apparently dead, Kilian Qatar took command of the
    Brotherhood, forging an uneasy alliance with GDI to defend against the
    Scrin invaders, and when Kane resurfaced, killed her for her supposed
    treachery, not for forging an alliance, but rather, for her attack on
    Temple Prime during the GDI siege, although this is not the case, rather,
    it was the work of LEGION, under command of Abbess Alexa Kovacs. 
    
    With Qatar removed, Kane managed to obtain the codes for the Scrin
    Threshold Towers, and managed to defend a single tower from the GDI
    onslaught. This tower was crucial to Kane's plan. However, his plan was
    not complete, he needed the Tacitus, and activated LEGION which in turn
    activated the Marked of Kane, and with this, managed to wrest control of
    the Tacitus from GDI. 
    
    By 2062, Tiberium, since the Liquid Tiberium explosion, evolved beyond
    the control of GDI and their proven technology, such as sonic technology,
    and infested even the best protected blue zones. He approached GDI, armed
    with knowledge from the Tacitus, and proposed the Tiberiun Control 
    Network, to keep it from overrunning the world, and with it, humanity.
    
    During the Incursion War, Kane managed to obtain the final pieces for
    his ascension, using the splinter faction of Nod seperatists, led by
    Gideon, for Kane's alliance with GDI. Through skillful manipulation, Kane
    managed to obtain the final pieces from GDI from the New York Public
    Library, a data store. With this, his plans were almost complete.
    
    Finally, along came the Fourth Tiberium War, or the Ascension Conflict,
    in which Nod Seperatists led by Gideon, and GDI Extremeists, led by 
    Colonel Louise James, formed an alliance to destroy Kane. James was
    outraged for the alliance with who many still in GDI considered a mass
    murderer. 
    
    Whilst James utilised GDI resources to attack Kane's forces, Gideon 
    killed off 4 out of the 5 keys to Kane's ascension, those with optical
    implants developed from the Tacitus, needed to activate the Scrin Portal
    at the remaining Threshold Tower. With this, Commander Parker was about
    to activate the Scrin Portal. As he was about to do so, Colonel James
    shoots Parker, but she is killed by Kane. With Parker's last few minutes
    on Earth, he activates the Scrin Portal, in which Kane although through,
    finally reaching his ascension.

    [5.01] Offensive
    
    GDI Offensive units are primarily based on tank troops, they are mainly tanks
    and their main ability is the ability to see Blue Tiberium Core crates, 
    whereas Defensive Crawlers will have the ability to build bases and Support
    Crawlers have the Support Powers.

                 Detecting Burrowed units
                 Reclaiming Husks
    
    
    The Engineer in this game is more versatile than previous games, their
    primary role of capturing buildings has been removed, and now they are used
    to repair everything that belongs to friendly forces, they will repair
    infantry units, land units, aerial units, structures, everything. They have
    relatively weak armour though, and their attack is miserable, but they have
    very high mobility, which allows them to retreat if they come under attack.
    They are best deployed in teams of 3 to 4, it allows you to repair everything
    that comes under attack and the ability to heal themselves if they are
    targeted.

     Armour    - Light
     
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Double Rocket Pods
    
     Abilities - Cliff Jumping
    
    
    The Talon is based on speed, they have the ability to move anywhere on the 
    map, with their abillity to cliffjump all over the place. They are fast, and
    also, their rockets will give them a nice anti-air ability against early 
    support aircraft. However, as the game progresses, their abilities and 
    usefulness will be limited to collecting Tiberium Upgrade points. 
    
    
     - Wolf -

     Armour    - Medium
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Double Gattling Guns
    
     Abilities - None
    
    
    The Wolf is a predator of prey, and prey in this case, are infantry units.
    They are decent against infantry, and they can dish out damage against enemy
    air units with their guns, which can be a bit of a headache to any support
    player with their starting aircraft, and a nightmare for defensive players
    with their infantry being shredded with Wolves en masee. However, when you
    are fighting other offensive players, this may not be the ideal fighter.
    
    
     - Hunter -

     Armour    - Medium
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Cannon Damage
    
     Abilities - Combat Acclimation
    
    
    The Hunter is the mainstay of your main forces, they are the basic tank, 
    they are there to hunt down other tanks, although they will be weaker when
    the game progresses on with the heavier armour rolls out. They are nice to 
    use to basically attack the enemy and deny them the ability to move forwards,
    and their combat acclimation skill allows them to gain veterancy, from normal
    units to veteran, elite and heroic stages. The Hunter is there to hunt tanks,
    and they do that well.
    
    
     - Titan -

     Armament  - Laser Beam Cannon
     Armour    - Medium
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Dual Laser Cannons
    
     Abilities - Laser slows enemies
    
    
    The Titan Mk II is the upgraded version of original Titan walker, and whilst
    it does not leave a husk behind when it falls, it will leave a scar on the 
    enemy when the Titan rolls through. Designed with laser cannons, it is quite
    powerful against heavy units, and early on, they are best used en masse 
    against enemy crawlers, given that Crawlers have heavy armour. Their ability
    to slow down enemies will make them useful on the battlefield, allowing your
    weak units to retreat, and giving time for your slower units a bit more time
    to move forwards. 
    
    
     - Striker - 
    
     Command Points - 3
     Build Time     - 10 Secs

     Tier   - 1
    
     Armament  - Laser Beam Cannon
     Armour    - Light
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Prism Beam
    
     Abilities - Cliff Jumping
    
    
    The Striker is a weaker laser unit, weaker than the Titan, but significantly
    faster than it, which means them perfect for really annoying harassing the 
    enemy Crawler. However, their light armour will make them very vulnerable 
    if the enemy has some sort of defence up, since lightly armoured units don't
    tend to last very long against enemy forces. Their blue Tiberium upgrade
    is very useful however, it makes them reminiscent of the Prism Tank from 
    Red Alert 2, and the Spectrum technology in Red Alert 3, the beam will hit
    the target, and then beams will, from the attacked target, prism out and hit
    other targets, doing damage all around. This truly makes them a useful unit
    against defensive players, and reminiscent of the Prism Tank, powerful against
    buildings, but hopeless when the enemy gets some armour out.
    
    
     - Bulldog - 
    
     Command Points - 3
     Build Time     - 10 Secs

     Tier   - 1
    
     Armament  - Mounted Shotgun

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Second Shotgun Barrel
    
     Abilities - Detecting Stealth units
                 Detecting Burrowed units
    
    
    The Bulldog is similar to the GDI Pitbull, it is fast, and can hold its own
    against infantry and use to scout out the enemy and the location of their 
    crawler. It is useful as a mobile detector against sneaky Nod forces, but
    you will always have your engineers for that job. It can take out enemy
    aircraft as well as infantry, and with a shotgun, as in most shotguns, if
    enemies bunch up together, you will hit all of them. However, their light
    armour lefts them down, but that is traded for mobility. 
    
    
     - Shockwave - 
    
     Command Points - 6
     Build Time     - 12 Secs
    
     Role   - Artillery
     Tier   - 2
    
     Armament  - Sonic Cannon Blast
     Armour    - Medium
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Blast Damage
    
     Abilities - Cliff Jumping
    
    
    The Shockwave is the cheap artillery unit that you can use when you don't 
    have access to higher tier units. Its blast attack is a nightmare when you
    are using turrets, since it is damn effective against structures, as well as
    horrifying to lightly armoured units, such as infantry and light vehicles,
    and their mobility to cliff jump makes them useful to get to places where 
    enemy forces cannot. However, although they may be good against lightly 
    armoured units and structures, they have no defence against aircraft, so
    support players will have a field day against them. Make sure you protect
    them, their medium armour will not protect them from battle tanks.

     Armament  - Multiple Launch Rocket System Pods
     Armour    - Medium
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Missile Racks
    
     Abilities - Cliff Jumping
    
    
    A Santstorm this unit is, it is a sandstorm of rockets that are fired at you
    when this unit is done with it's salvo. With increased missile racks, the 
    number of those missiles fired at you double, which is truly scary. As well
    as being a rocket weapon, it will shred aircraft with their one and true
    weakness, which makes this a support player's worst nightmare. Their mobility
    with the ability to cliffjump and medium armour, means that they are safe
    from most things, bar a group of angry battle tanks that want vengence. 
    
    
     - Commando - 
    
     Command Points - 6
     Build Time     - 12 Secs

                 Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Pods
     Armour    - Light
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Second Railgun Cannon
    
     Abilities - Jumpjets
                 Upgrades GDI Vehicles
    
    
    The Commando is not the same as previous commandos, only with upgrades can
    they actually do some decent damage against structures, but in their
    un-upgraded forms, they will have dual weapons, they will have the ability
    to kill tanks with their railgun cannon, and the ability to harass enemy
    aircraft units with rocket pods. However, they are not a serious threat on
    the battlefield, and are best used to enter GDI vehicles, where they will
    automatically promote that unit to Heroic, regardless of current rank, which
    is useful if you have a Mammoth Tank waiting in the wings.
    
    
     - Refractor - 
    
     Command Points - 10
     Build Time     - 15 Secs
    
     Role   - Anti-Vehicle, Anti-Crawler
     Tier   - 3
    
     Armament  - Heavy Ion Laser Beam
     Armour    - Heavy
    
     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Laser Damage
    
     Abilities - Reflects Damage
    
    
    The Refractor is a very interesting unit, mainly because of the mirrors in
    front of the main weapon are powerful enough to reflect any damage that comes
    into contact with the mirrors, be it on other units or the enemy. This makes 
    them pretty hard to kill on the battlefield, but when they remove their 
    mirrors to fire their laser cannon, they are vulnerable, especially against
    the very weapon they are firing, lasers. However, if a laser weapon hits the
    refractor whilst in it's mirrored mode, it will reflect the beam back at the
    source, which makes them vulnerable to your fire. 
    
    
     - Mammoth Tank - 
    
     Command Points - 10
     Build Time     - 15 Secs

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Cannon Damage due to Railgun Upgrades
                                  Quad Rocket Pods
    
     Abilities - Taunt Laser
    
    
    What makes the Mammoth Tank so feared? It is because it is exceptionally
    powerful. With rocket pods to knock out aerial units and cannons to make
    mince out of enemy battle tanks, this is your frontline when you want to 
    take on a heavily fortified enemy. And with the increase in sheer firepower
    with the blue Tiberium core, it will only serve to make your enemies run in
    fear faster. Their taunt laser, if used, can only make it worse, forcing
    enemies to shift their fire from other units to your Mammoth Tank, where it
    will soak up damage and shell it out. Truly to be feared, if you see three
    heroic mammoths with blue Tiberium upgrades, I suggest running in the other
    direction. Be aware that it will leave a husk when destroyed, leaving its
    veterancy and blue Tiberium core intact.

                                  Double Depth Charge Capacity
    
     Abilities - None
    
    
    This is similar to the Walkers you see in Star Wars, these guys are my 
    favourite unit in all of the GDI Arsenal, even ahead of the Mammoth Tank, 
    due to it's sheer awesomeness. It has an artillery blast attack, demolishing
    light infantry and vehicles and demolishing structures. Rocket pods will
    hit aircraft who come too close as well as those who are too close to the
    Mastadon to engage with their artillery blast. Combined with Mammoth Tanks,
    a small combination of these two units, protecting the Crawler, will be more
    than enough to siege and destroy an enemy base with absolute ease. This is
    just the vanilla Mastadon, without upgrades.
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [5.02] Defensive
    
    GDI Defensive forces are heavily based on infantry, and their Crawler has
    the ability to call in defensive structures to protect themselves, and all
    that fall within their attack range. They also have the ability to call in
    the iconic GDI Weapon, the Ion Cannon, although the Ion Cannon is somewhat
    dimmed down, given that it no longer is based off satellites, but rather,
    a mirror to fire beams at enemies.

    No, this isn't the USA Dozer from Command and Conquer: Generals, but rather,
    it is an upgraded engineer. Sure, it doesn't have the mobility, but it does
    have the repairing power, and it does have 2 nifty abilities, it will be able
    to deploy EMP mines on the battlefield, which is visible, but if you use them
    correctly, in particular, against offensive based opponents, will make them 
    useful at bottlenecks. Also, it is the only means for you to construct your
    outposts, which are useful if you are going to be hiding from a distance, and
    have your eyes and ears everywhere.

    This is really your only tank unit, the grunt of your army, your main battle
    tanks, the rest aren't really tank units. This is quite a nifty little tank,
    it is your standard tank, so it can hold its own early on against other 
    tank units, and here is the kicker, when the tank is destroyed, it will 
    turn into a Cannon Turret right there, without cost to you, or a drain on
    your power. It doesn't exactly have a long shelf life, if they blew up your
    tank, they can do the same with the platform, but the important thing is 
    that it ties up the enemy for just that little longer, and every second
    counts if you are rushing units up to the front line or replacing fallen
    units or structures.

    The first of the GDI infantry units, the Zone Lancer is basically the
    advanced version of the GI from Red Alert 2. It is a solid unit, it has
    a laser cannon, which makes them very useful against vehicles, especially
    against enemy heavy units, such as Crawlers and Tier 3 tanks, but it will
    also have the ability to deploy into a Lance Platform, which will make them
    stationary, so they cannot move, however, the cost of mobility will be 
    increased range, which is useful against vehicles, every little bit counts, 
    as well as increased armour, that means that they can live that much longer
    on the battlefield when deployed in their lance platform.

    The Zone Trooper is a familar sight for those who have played Tiberium Wars, 
    these guys were the infantry units armed with powerful Railguns, which made
    them impossible to defeat with vehicles if they were sent against you en 
    masse. In this game, they aren't as powerful as they were in Tiberium Wars,
    which is a darn shame, but they are still powerful against enemy vehicles,
    their railgun is a cannon type weapon, best against enemy tanks, which will
    come very quickly in the game, but later on, when enemy units become harder
    to kill with heavy armour, you will be changing these sturdy troopers with
    lancers.

    Zone Enforcers aren't that useful on the battlefield unless you are using
    them in their anti-air role or to take out enemy commandos, the fact of the
    matter is that the gun based weaponry against enemy forces, and they aren't
    much use unless you are going to be fighting enemy light tanks, which is
    unlikely, and infantry, which is reserved for defensive crawlers. However,
    they are quick moving and they do a fair amount of damage, and when used in
    a group with other Zone infantry, they will be able to help cover all the
    bases.

    The Zone Defender is basically your main weapon against enemy air units, their
    rocket pods will be able to remove enemy aircraft with absolute ease, given 
    that that is their strong suit and exactly what they are there for. En masse,
    they are also good against enemy vehicles, given that rockets are effective
    against medium armour somewhat, but when it comes to infantry and heavy 
    armour, it won't exactly be the most effective thing in the world. If you are
    worried about enemy air units, keeping a few of these guys around won't bother
    you too much.

    The Zone Raider is the first in the advanced line of Zone infantry, and they 
    are Tier 2 because they have 2 weapons, a blast weapon that they will use when
    they are facing structures, and a laser cutter weapon which makes them useful
    against enemy heavy vehicles. Although they do have the weakness when it comes
    to light armour, their speed and versatility will make them hard to fight 
    compared to conventional tank forces, that and their ability to hide all over
    the place helps as well. The Raider is a decent unit, but watch out that their
    command cost is a bit higher compared to normal infantry.

    The Armadillo is your APC, it carrys your infantry all over the battlefield 
    and what is important is that it is heavy armour, it will protect your forces
    against the enemy guns that are targeting your infantry. This is useful given
    that your forces aren't exactly the pinup model for the strongest unit on the
    battlefield. Furthermore, it does have protection in the form of the gattling
    gun, which is useful to clear off enemy infantry, if they get too close and
    attacking your infantry. It allows your infantry to do hit and runs, and gives
    good cover as well.

                 Uplink with Ion Cannon to gain EMP Effect on Blast
    
    
    This is the best of the best in terms of what GDI infantry forces have to
    offer. The Zone Captain is there to take out structures mainly, but it does
    have an EMP blast effect, which does make them useful against enemy vehicles
    as well. With an Ion Cannon, their blast effects with have an EMP effect as
    well, which makes them more dangerous, and the reason that they aren't cheap
    to field out on the battlefield. This, along with a mix of Raiders, Lancers,
    Enforcers, Troopers and Defenders will provide a very powerful infantry force,
    and if backed up with a powerful group of engineers in terms of healing, you
    will be hard to beat in a fair battle.

    The Rhino is one of the units that will leave a husk behind, and the Rhino
    is basically your powerful artillery unit. It cannot attack when it is packed
    up, so you will need to unpack the Rhino if you want to fire it. It will 
    create an earthquake around the area in which it is deployed, and will 
    constantly do that, so it will damage and slow enemy units that are around
    the Rhino, as well as knocking any burrowed units out of the ground, given 
    that the earthquake will probably destroy them if they do not unburrow. They 
    have long range as Artillery, so don't worry about that, you probably need
    some spotters in terms of infantry.

    The Juggernaut is back. It isn't as powerful as before, but it still is a 
    powerful unit against reinforced positions, it is useful limited to vehicles
    and strucutres. However, this is a powerful unit, but if you are looking at
    artillery, you might want to change to look at the Rhino, it is a far better
    artillery unit, but then the Juggernaut is cheaper on your command points and
    it is a tad more mobile, they do not need to unpack in order to attack the
    enemy, but remember, they do have a minimum range, which is a problem if they
    are swarmed by enemies. The power is there, but the Juggernaut really isn't 
    the best unit to use.

    This is the outpost, which can only be built by a Dozer unit, and it can be

    tower, which increases your vision with fog of war, overall build radius with
    your Crawler, and when fighting Nod forces, is able to detect stealth units,
    which is very handy. Basically, if you are planning to fight mobile wars, you
    will need to have some defences around key Tiberium Nodes with some heavy
    defences, and an outpost is certainly a means to do this, and given that
    Nod forces love to hide, this is certainly a way to make sure that if they
    have a successful attack, it will be very punishing on their strike forces.

    The Bunker is just right for infantry, it holds 2 infantry units, but what
    it lacks in capacity, it makes up for in defence, whilst in there, the 
    infantry within can still cause havoc, and when the bunker is destroyed,
    they can cause havoc outside the bunker, retaining the health in which
    they had when they entered. With the Reinforce upgrade, it grants a machine
    gun on the bunker, which is useful for dishing out a bit more damage, but
    it will also upgrade the armour from Heavy to Reinforced, and that will make
    it take more of a punishment to destroy, and force the enemy to use blast-
    based units to effectively take them out. A few reinforced bunkers with 
    a good mix of infantry is a pretty hard thing to take out.

    This is your main defence against enemy tanks, the Guardian Cannon is armed
    with a cannon, which is only useful to take out ground units, but it is 
    effective nonetheless. It also is armed with shock shells when the cannon
    fires, which slows down enemies, similar to the Titan's laser. Reinforce 
    here will only make the Guardian Cannon harder to remove, it will shove the
    armour rating from Heavy to Reinforced, as well as the other perks such 
    as increased range with it, making it a nightmare if these are used en masse
    against Offense Crawlers.

    The Missile Turret is the nightmare against enemy Support players, it is 
    armed with rocket pods, which are deadly and lethal to aircraft, as well as 
    dealing pretty good damage to enemy ground tanks. The Patriot Missile System
    is a nice system, it links targeting information from the attacking Turret
    to nearby turrets that are not within range so that they too can attacking,
    even though they are not in range. This is a nice weapon, but when facing
    concentrated strike groups, lone turrets are no match.

    The Tunnel Network is basically a means for travel. If you have a Crawler
    and place a Tunnel Network in one location, and travel to another and place
    a tunnel network there, it will allow light and medium units, which is most
    of your forces, through to travel instantly, and with the Expand Network
    option, it allows heavy units, so if you have tunnel networks in place, and
    change to the Offense Class, the enemy may get a nasty surprise when a few
    Mammoth Tanks roll out of the tunnel network and into the back of their 
    established position. Used wisely, this is a useful structure, similar to
    the Tunnel Networks the GLA had in C&C Generals.

    Think of this as an upgraded missile turret, it will pack a powerful
    punch against air units, and it can be used sparsely as a defensive weapon,
    given that it has, like the missile turret, the Patriot Missile System
    which allows out of range turrets to access the targeting information from
    an attacking turret and attack. It will also have the ability to launch
    barrages against a ground location, which is a nice ability to have if you
    can see a group of enemies moving towards a certain location, drop some 
    rockets on them. Sonic Rockets give the MLRS system additional hitpoints,
    and upgrades the rockets, so that they will do area of effect damage as well
    as slowing them down.

     Armour    - Reinforced
    
     Abilities - Increased laser damage when focus firing on an enemy
    
    
    The Focus Beam is quite an interesting form of base defence, it is a beam
    in which it will fire a laser, which will deter the heavy units of there are
    a few focus beams around, and when you concentrate on one enemy, the longer
    the focus beam has fired on an enemy, the more damage it will do, so against
    a sustained attack, the enemy will slowly become more and more damaged at an
    increasing rate, provided that your focus beam does not hit the dust, so make
    sure you have a few dozers or engineers around. Armour up is the ability
    in which your main weapon is disabled, but armour and defence is increased, 
    making it harder to destroy, such that it is effective as a decoy, and it
    will increae damage and slow the enemy more with the secondary beam, as well
    as reducing the ability of enemies to dodge your attacks.

    soldiers you can have on the field, given the command point limit. However,
    this is a good second line of defence, your turrets and cannons should take
    the first set of enemy attacks, and your artillery, with it's range, should
    sit back and launch artillery strikes on the stationary forces, which are 
    bound to be there, units don't tend to attack on the move very well. It is a
    power sucking device, however, it is useful later in the game where you will
    be needing a lot to keep the enemy at bay.

    invulnerable, that is, cannot be destroyed or even damaged by enemy fire or
    natural events, however, it comes at the cost that everything inside the field
    is unresponsive, so you cannot command them. This makes it useful if you have
    a base of operations, and it comes under attack when your strike force or army
    is away. This will protect your forces long enough for either the enemy to
    retreat, or your own forces to reinforce, or hopefully, outflank the enemy and
    allow you to crush them, all whilst the statis field protects your base and
    its defences, which come back online when the enemy is under attack.

    This is the iconic GDI weapon, the Ion Cannon. This isn't the Ion Cannon 
    though, anyone who has played Command and Conquer before in the Tiberium Saga
    will know that the Ion Cannon is actually a satellite weapon and the ground
    control here is a relay and a targeting uplink system, after all, what good
    is a killer satellite weapon if it cannot fire? Anyway, this is a superweapon
    where you can fire as many times as you want, and it has an EMP effect 
    associated with it, however, the longer you let it recharge, the more powerful
    the weapon is. Look at is this way, the satellite will need to charge up ions,
    and that takes time. Rushing the satellite will only result in a partial 
    charge, but letting it take its time will allow it to build up to capacity, 
    and fire a powerful charge. It is a superweapon, but remember, this comes at
    the cost of mobility and brute force, so you need to be careful.

    relatively weak armour though, and their attack is miserable, but they have
    very high mobility, which allows them to retreat if they come under attack.
    They are best deployed in teams of 3 to 4, it allows you to repair everything
    that comes under attack and the ability to heal themselves if they are
    targeted.

    The Orca has been in Tiberium games for a long, long time, they are the 
    standard GDI air unit, and in this game, it is more or less the same as all
    the other Orca units, the Orca MK V fires rockets at the enemy, and this does
    make them more effective against enemy aircraft, which is wonderful, and
    they don't have to go back to base to reload, which is awesome, they can just
    loiter in an area, however, it does take them some time to reload their 
    rockets in the middle of nowhere, and I seriously wonder where they get their
    rockets from. However, Orcas don't carry a lot of rockets and they are 
    outclassed later on in the game.

     Armament - Sheppard Cannon
     Armour   - Medium
    
     Abilities - Increases dodge of nearby friendlies
    
    
    The Sheppard is the standard tank that all the classes get, but like all the
    other classes, there are little differences between this guy and other 
    standard battle tanks. The Sheppard will give a little buff to nearby units,
    such that the ability for your friendly units to dodge is increased. And this
    is the special ability, in comparsion, Offense Crawlers are more powerful and
    Defence Crawler tanks deploy into the platform. It is useful at the start, but
    lacks the mobility that your air units possess.

     Armament - Autocannon Guns
     Armour   - Medium Aircraft
    
     Abilities - Attach Sensor Pod
    
    
    The Hurricane is your anti-infantry aircraft, it packs 2 autocannons and they
    are quick at shredding infantry and they do have a large magazine, so they 
    will be able to shoot at infantry for a while, and they will be able to damage
    enemy aircraft as well, and they do have pretty high mobility, but like most
    gun-based vehicles, it is pretty weak when it comes to dealing with vehicles, 
    and they will be horribly outclassed when the enemy deploys rocket-based 
    tank troops. But they are good against defence crawlers and commando type 
    units, so you might want a few around.

                 Stealth Detection
                 System Restore
    
    
    The Spanner is basically a flying engineer, it has the ability to fly aroun
    and repair everything that is damaged, which is wonderful, however, it also
    has the ability to detect units that are hidden, that are stealthed from view,
    something that Nod forces can use to deadly effect. It also has the ability to
    use System Restore, which is the ability to remove a positive buff from an
    enemy as well as a negative debuff from your own forces, which is nice if they
    are facing a massive firestorm.

                Anti-Missile Point Defence Laser
     Armour   - Medium Aircraft
    
     Abilities - Anti-Rocket Mode
    
    
    The Paladin is the first of the powerful GDI aircraft, and the Paladin is a 
    decent start. It is a heavy aircraft, but still is weak to rockets, but it 
    does pack a heavy laser, and it also has another nifty little ability. In 
    exchange to shutting down their lasers, they will be able to activate their
    point blank laser defences, which shoots down enemy rockets firing at it and
    prevent the rockets from damaging them, which is the best ability aircraft
    have to get the hell out of a heavy SAM zone.

     Armour   - Heavy
    
     Abilities - Increases rate of fire of friendlies
    
    
    The Hammerhead has 2 weapons, a gun based weapon that like most gun-based
    weapons mounted on vehicles, need to reload with a manual option, and they
    will have rocket packs as well. This makes them a very powerful Anti-Air
    option, since they can engage the enemy with their powerful rockets and 
    their guns, and this mix will also keep weaker vehicles and infantry at bay
    as well, given that they are using some decent weapons. They also have 
    pretty decent health and armour, so not a bad anti-air option at all.

                 Cliffjumping
                 EMP Grenades
    
    
    The Conductor is another support unit, they have the ability to repair your
    units and structures, which is always handy in terms of supporting an army, 
    and the ability to move up and down cliffs, handy when you need to escape
    the enemy, since this unit does not have the ability to beat the daylights out
    of the enemy. They also have EMP grenades, which do not do any damage, but 
    they are good at disabling enemy vehicles and structures so that they cannot
    attack you, giving you enough time to get your forces into position and get
    rid of them, or to allow the hover vehicle time to escape.

     Armour   - Medium Aircraft
    
     Abilities - Supersonic Thrusters
    
    
    The Firehawk is back, and this time, it is a fair bit better. It does still
    have it's bombs, and it still has the need to reload their bombs by flying
    back to the MCV, they do pack some anti-air rockets for self protection this
    time, after all, there are units that will attack air units that are air
    units themselves. Like the previous game, they do have the ability to use
    their thrusters, and this time, it will return them to the MCV where they will
    reload their bombs and they will do so faster with their thrusters on, 
    somehow.

                Anti-Aircraft Guns
     Armour   - Heavy
    
     Abilities - None
    
    
    The Kodiak is the the most powerful direct aircraft GDI has to offer. The 
    Kodiak is named after a powerful GDI aircraft during the Second Tiberium War,
    and it packs a powerful punch, it is a powerful artillery aircraft, as well as
    a machine gun that will defend itself against enemy aircraft, so it is well
    covered in both ground and air attack. Their blast guns, like all blast 
    attacks, will do massive damage if the enemy is all grouped up, like a group
    of engineers and infantry. A powerful aircraft, but they are weak to lasers,
    and not rockets.

     Armament - Heavy Ion Laser Beam
     Armour   - Heavy
    
     Abilities - Hover/Jet Mode
    
    
    The Thunderhead is an interesting aircraft, it has two real modes, it will
    be able to hover on the ground, which allows it to target ground units with
    their powerful lasers, and that is pretty powerful against heavy vehicles and
    crawlers, and they will be able to change into their jet mode, which allows
    them to only target aircraft. As such, this mode changing will give them good
    mobility around the battlefield, and their modes will let them target anything
    they want, so a few of these guys will easily destroy crawlers, and it is one 
    of the best crawler hunters out there.

                 Sabotage Weaponry
                 Supercharge Weaponry
    
    
    The Archangel is named appropriately, it is an angel such that it will repair
    everything on the battlefield with it's repair beam, but for 10 command 
    points, it has to do something that normal GDI engineers cannot, then 
    otherwise, why take up 3 engineer places with this? It has the ability to
    supercharge weaponry of nearby units, which will increase the damage these
    units do, and they will be able to sabotage the weaponry of the enemy, which
    will decrease the amount of damage that enemies in a targeted area can do. 
    
    
     --==Support Powers==--
    
     - Recon Drone - 
    
     Cost: 10 Support Points
    
    This is a simple ability, where a recon drone is called to a location of your

    At the target location, a Heroic Engineer is deployed in that area and ready
    for any operations such as repairing structures or capturing fallen husks from
    fallen heavy vehicles. It does not effect your command points and is useful 
    when your forces are in a pinch, or a walker has fallen.
    
    
     - Repair Zone - 
    
     Cost: 20 Support Points
    
    All friendly units and structures in the targeted area are instantly repaired
    by an amount depending on how much health the unit or structure has and how 
    damaged they are. This is the quick way to save units from certain death on
    the battlefield.
    
    
     - Accelerated Construction - 
    
     Cost: 20 Support Points
    
    The selected MCV will build units and structures faster for a short period of
    time, which is useful if you want to quickly pump out structures and units to
    defend yourself where time is critical. 
    
    
     - Supply Drop - 
    
     Cost: 30 Support Points

    fight your way off the area.
    
    
     - EMP Mine Drop - 
    
     Cost: 30 Support Points
    
    This will drop EMP mines in the targeted area, which are visible to the enemy
    since they are not stealthed, and when the enemy comes in contact, it will 
    damage them and disable that unit for a short period of time, giving your 
    forces time to kill them.
    
    
     - Mirror Coat - 
    
     Cost: 40 Support Points
    
    All friendly units will gain a mirror coat, which will allow them to deflect

     Cost: 40 Support Points

     - Battle Hardening - 
    
     Cost: 40 Support Points
    
    This will instantly have your troops battle hardened, which will give all your
    units, or all friendly units in the targeted area with increased veterancy and
    that will allow them to be a lot harder to kill, but hard for aircraft. 
    
    
     - Seismic Disturbance - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    This will create an earthquake in a location, which will cause a hell of a lot
    of damage to enemies in the area, as well as reducing the speed of the enemy
    units effected and their dodging abilities. Since the earthquake shakes the
    ground, it will also unburrow all hidden units and stealth enemies will be
    detected as their little optical tricks will not save them from an earthquake.
    
    
     - Displacement Field - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    This is where your units, in the targeted area, will have a massive chance to
    dodge enemy attacks, which makes them nearly impossible to hit, which might be
    useful if you have aircraft that need to avoid a lot of enemy rockets or just 
    to get the hell out of dodge. 
    
    
     - Firehawk Airstrike - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    This will call Firehawk Bombers into an area, where they will fire their 
    missiles at everything in their area, and they will continue to do so until 
    they run out of missiles or are destroyed, but the latter is least likely to 
    happen, so you might want to choose between this and the Seismic Disturbance.

    to Tier 2 units and upgrades, it will cost 5 upgrade points, whereas for Tier

     Type - Crawler Upgrade

     - Defensive Matrix - 
    
     Type - Crawler Upgrade
     For  - Defence
    
    A defensive matrix isn't really a matrix, it is more a big shield that is

    [6.01] Offensive
    
    Nod Offensive units are the best of the best in terms of what Nod has to offer
    in terms of tanks and brute force warfare, something that Nod isn't really
    built for, but it is a class none the less. Like their GDI counterparts, they
    have the ability to see Blue Tiberium Core upgrades, whilst their defensive
    breathen have the ability to build up defensive structures, and their
    support cousins the ability to call in supporting powers.

    The Engineer in this game is more versatile than previous games, their
    primary role of capturing buildings has been removed, and now they are used
    to repair everything that belongs to friendly forces, they will repair
    infantry units, land units, aerial units, structures, everything. They have
    relatively weak armour though, and their attack is miserable, but they have
    very high mobility, which allows them to retreat if they come under attack.
    They are best deployed in teams of 3 to 4, it allows you to repair everything
    that comes under attack and the ability to heal themselves if they are
    targeted.

    The Raider is the quick, rapid attack unit, it is there to scout out the
    enemy's position, gather the Tiberium Upgrade points and to mow down infantry
    and make aircraft tingle when they enter your field of vision, but the fact
    is that they aren't powerful against the main type of enemy units, enemy
    tanks, and that will put you in a bad position when it comes down to it. It's
    good against infantry, so that will put defence crawlers on alert, and good
    against aircraft, so that puts support on alert, but field these against 
    offensive armies, and prepare for losses.

     Abilities - None
    
    
    Remember that robotic Mantis from Tiberium Wars? Well, their role in the game
    is still here, to make sure that aircrafts suffer hell, but their pilot has 
    changed. Anyway, the Mantis is a decent anti-tank and anti-aircraft unit, but
    best against aircraft. Their rockets are good against infantry and tanks, but
    not against heavy units. Their Ballistic Rocket is impressive, it allows for a
    much more ranged attack, and it does quite a fair bit of damage, so that will
    give them an anti-structure role. And they are pretty fast as well, so that 
    will help your arsenal.

     Abilities - Mines Dropped when destroyed
    
    
    The Avenger is your basic tank, it is a bulky looking thing, but it is the
    same as the Hunter counterpart from GDI. It is best against enemy tanks early
    in the game, and en masse, the Avenger can take down heavy units as well, but
    they are limited to attacking ground units with their cannons, so you might 
    want to bring in some Mantis units to protect them from air threats if there 
    are some support crawlers on the loose. However, on the ground, they will be 
    able to look after themselves, and en masse, early on in the game, it is 
    nearly impossible to defeat if they are well supported.

     Abilities - Burrowing
    
    
    The Scorpion is basically your Titan tank, but a flashback to Tiberium Wars,
    the Scorpion tank does indeed look like a Scorpion, and it stings with it's
    tail, a powerful mini Obelisk of Light. It is best used early on if you want
    to go Crawler hunting, which is fun in itself, and a good group of these 
    little stingers will be able to eliminate a Crawler with ease, and the fact
    that their range is so impressive as well makes them good to hit and run the
    enemy Crawler and before the enemy can return fire, which makes them 
    devastating. However, do realise that their weakness relies in their slow
    speed, they cannot escape enemy fire very quickly, and if they are forced to
    face the enemy head on, especially enemy tanks, they are in some serious
    trouble.

    Now says hit and run without this guy, this is built for hit and runs. They
    are cheap to field on the battlefield, 3 command points is the lowest you
    can go for, and their rocket pods are enough to piss off an squadron of
    aircraft or a small group of tanks. Their speed is definitely their defining
    factor, they can hit aircraft effective and a good commander can do it such
    that the bikes hit the aircraft, move out of their range, hit again, run away,
    rinse and repeat. Their weakness comes from their armour and health, they 
    cannot survive a direct confrontation, even though their weakness is gun-based
    weapons, their health limits their role against ground forces.

     Abilities - Burrowing
                 Laser Web
    
    
    The Spider Tank, although it probably doesn't deserve the name of tank, given
    the armour, or lack there of, is pretty interesting to use, because of their
    speed. Their laser beam and high speed makes them a good option later on in
    the game against enemy Crawlers, and their laser web is an interesting 
    ability, it will create a laser based spider web between multiple spider
    tanks, and any unfortunate unit inbetween will continiously take damage from
    the laser-based web. This is a powerful little ability, because the spider
    tank has the ability to move quickly, which makes their ability pretty quick
    to activate. Their weakness is definitely their health and armour, if they
    try to laser web a powerful unit, say a Mammoth Tank, the web will not do that
    much damage and they will be shredded by a railgun.

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Flame Damage
    
     Abilities - Firestorm
    
    
    This is the Artillery unit of the Nod forces, and it is pretty hard to use, 
    simply because they have to be in very close quarters in order for you to do
    much damage. They do pretty good damage against all units, but their range, or
    lack there of, will probably get them killed first, and their somewhat lower
    mobility will make it hard for them to get out of the area when the enemy is
    overpowering them. However, in groups, they can easily take down enemy 
    structures, even the most powerful defences will crumble if they get the chance
    to get close. In groups, they can use their Firestorm ability, where several
    flame weapons can combine together to cause even more damage than usual.

                                  Increased Dodge Ability
    
     Abilities - Stealth when not Firing
    
    
    The stealth tank is one of the hardest units to counter if they are used 
    properly, and the best unit in the game for hit and run attacks. Unless your
    enemy is stationary and have plenty of stealth detectors lying around, you
    are pretty deadly with stealth tanks, simply because they are fast, carry
    4 rockets, and they are in stealth mode, that is, invisible to all units 
    unless they are attacking or detected by a unit that can. To the enemy, there
    is nothing more dangerous than the unknown, and if you have the ability to 
    show that you are the master of the unknown, then the enemy is in some sort
    of trouble. And given that they are very good against aircraft, nothing will
    terrify a support player more than their powerful air fleet encountering a 
    large group of stealth tanks right in their backside.

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Laser Damage
    
     Abilities - Recovers health automatically
                 Hijacks enemy vehicles in legless form
    
    
    This guy is a painful unit to fight if you are using powerful ground forces,
    including Mammoths and Mastadons. In it's current form, as a commando, it 
    isn't anything that stands out from the rest, it is just another Nod unit that
    packs a laser such that it is good against enemy heavy vehicles. However, what
    does make it stand out is that when it is killed, you need to remember that it
    is a commando, and it is a cyborg, so it will only lose it's legs, and it will
    crawl all the way to an enemy vehicle, and it will hijack the vehicle and you
    will gain control of it. What makes it so dangerous is that when that vehicle
    is destroyed, the cyborg still comes out to play, so it is hard to remove. And
    when it is in it's legless form, cannon fire and laser fire is very 
    ineffective against it. And also, the unit about to be hijacked cannot move 
    either. And this is the reason you need to pack anti-infantry forces when this
    guy is around.

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Additional two Ballistic Cannons
    
     Abilities - Loses cannons to increase speed when damaged
    
    
    The Avatar is meant to be the Mammoth Tank of the Nod forces, and it even 
    leaves a husk as well. The difference is that the Avatar is a fair bit weaker,
    a lot weaker. First of all, it only has 3 cannons, and will get 5 when it
    gets the Blue Tiberium Core upgrade. However, when it starts to lose health,
    your Avatar will trade these cannons for speed, which is a problem if you have
    engineers ready to recapture the husk if it is damaged, rather than have it 
    run away. Another is that it can only target ground units with the cannons,
    which is a problem given that there are going to be air threats that you 
    cannot deal with, unlike the Mammoth. As such, the Avatar is a lot weaker
    as the most powerful unit in the Nod arsenal, and greatly underwhelming when
    compared with the Mammoth Tank.

     Blue Tiberium Core Upgrade - Increased Blast Damage
    
     Abilities - Stealthed when not Firing
    
    
    The Spectre is something that you see in the distance, it is a massive
    artillery unit. Since it is artillery, it does have long range, and when it
    is not firing, it does have the ability to stay stealthed, and this is very
    important if you want to sneak into the perfect position to bombard the enemy
    crawler. The problem with the Spectre is that it has relatively weak armour,
    and as such, the enemy can quickly build up some cheap Tier 1 tanks and that
    will easily dispatch the Spectre, given that they have armour that is weak 
    against cannon based fire. As such, if you are planning to use these guys in
    a firefight, you should protect them from cannon-based units, since they are
    the cheapest and most effective counter.

     Abilities - Garrisons Spider Tanks
                 Burrowing
    
    
    The Widow is driven by a female pilot, and that does make sense, after all, 
    all the men have been killed off by her. Anyway, this is the best Nod Offense
    has to offer, and this will leave a husk when it is destroyed. With the Widow,
    it will carry 4 Spider Tanks inside of it, and drop it off wherever you see
    fit. This is a powerful unit, it makes this the Heavy Vehicle killer, and as
    such, it is deadly against Crawlers and high-end units. This can effectively
    counter Mammoth Tanks, lasers are best against them, and they only have cannon
    weapons to beat you with. And the spider tanks can be used well, unload them
    quickly and form a web around heavy units, and watch them slowly be drained of
    their health, and with a Widow firing on them, they will be in worlds of hurt.

    [6.02] Defensive
    
    Nod defensive forces is where things get interesting, they retain the notion
    that infantry are the primary forces used, and they have access to Nod 
    structures, including the symbol of Nod, the Obelisk of Light. They will
    also have access to units that can burrow around all over the floor, which
    makes them relative sneaky as well, to compliment their infantry forces.

    The Slave is the Nod counterpart of the GDI Dozer, it is basically an

    stealthed mines, which is pretty nifty, you can minefield chokepoints so
    the enemy has no choice but to go over the minefield, and these ones will
    cause blast damage, and given that you are flaming them with some fire, 
    they will burn for a while. The fact that they are invisible is a means of
    damaging an enemy force when they think that they are on the path to 
    victory.

    The Centurion is a tank unit, where it will activate a reflective shield 
    that will render incoming fire next to useless. When it is attacking, it
    will activate the shield, to protect itself from enemy fire, and takes 
    little damage in this state, whilst firing it's cannon at enemies, which 
    does make them very powerful and useful in direct fights with enemy tanks,
    but it will be vulnerable from the sides and the back, and there, they are
    weak to enemy cannon fire, and they will suffer heavily if the enemy has
    flanked them.

    The Reaper is really a mutant human that is attached to a mechanical 
    spider chassis and designated as heavy infantry. Their lasers are very
    powerful against enemy heavy units, and if you only have an army of
    them, they will demolish crawlers with ease, as well as holding their
    own against anything that blocks their path, except for counters to their
    light armour. They are slow moving for infantry as well, as they can
    suffer heavily from light vehicles that can hit and run them with their
    gattling guns.

    The Enlightened is your standard anti-vehicle infantry unit, they have little
    in the terms of health, but they do have a powerful cannon, that, when used 
    en masse, will be devastating to enemy tank forces early on in the game. The
    Enlightened is basically a Nod soldier with a goal to destroy GDI forces, and
    it is the only cannon based unit that a Nod commander can access early on in
    their career, it is easy to unlock, compared to the Centurion, and given that
    you can field a lot of these guys, don't underestimate them.

    The Devout is your anti-infantry infantry unit, and that is a problem, their
    gun based weaponry only makes them good against enemy light vehicles and other
    infantry units, which isn't going to be practical on the battlefield, given 
    that enemy armoured units aren't going to be forgiving based on their thicker
    armour. Unlike GDI, where they need to watch out for hijacking units, Nod does
    not have this problem, so you will not need these guys around, and besides, 
    you have flame units to play with that do a pretty good job against infantry
    regardless of weapon and armour types.

    The Ascended is basically your anti-aircraft infantry, their rocket pods, in
    groups, will shred enemy aircraft with pretty good efficiency, and they will
    do pretty good damage against light and medium armour, though you would not
    want to use them against heavy armour, since it hardly makes a dent against
    it. This makes them a support player's nightmare, they are cheap and easy to
    produce, and hard to defeat, but again, as infantry units, they are pretty
    damn easy to shred with guns and other infantry as well as light vehicles are
    a good counter to this.

    The Black Hand are the elite forces of Nod, they are one of the most powerful
    infantry units that Nod has to offer, and they are well deserved, they pack a
    powerful flamethrower. Although they have pretty short range, they are very
    powerful against structures, given that all of them don't really fight 
    infantry well, the structures are designed to defeat vehicles. Their flame
    throwers are also good against infantry, and when in big groups, they can
    shred all but heavy vehicles.

    The Reckoner is basically the same as the GDI Armadillo, given that it will
    carry infantry, allowing them to move around the battlefield faster and have
    some armour to protect them, as well as having them fire on enemies the
    whole time, given that the Reckoner is unarmed. This is quite useful on 
    maps that don't have much in terms of urban cover, or buildings, and with
    several reckoners with basic infantry and engineers, it is a powerful and
    rude shock to the enemy, given that a good mix of Tier 1 infantry and wreck
    havoc on the battlefield and engineers will be able to heal them.

    The High Confessor is the best Nod has to offer in terms of infantry, they
    are powerful commando type units, where they will have a blast weapon that 
    does a hell of a lot of damage to structures for an infantry unit. As an 
    infantry unit, they are weak to gun based weapons, but they do have a lot 
    of health and they will need to take a lot of damage before they will be
    killed on the battlefield. That makes them different from their Zone Captain
    counterparts, they will be able to take down aircraft, and with good 
    proficiency as well. Their Tiberium Launcher ability is where their attacks
    will corrode enemy armour and it will damage them and make them weaker to
    your attacks on them.

    The Aftershock is a powerful artillery unit. It uses the Tiberium Vein
    deposits within the earth to attack the enemy in a two-fold attack, it will
    first use the Tiberium Vein underneath the enemy to create a geo-shockwave,
    which is pretty much like an earthquake that will damage the enemy as well
    as reducing their ability to dodge incoming fire, and then it will cycle to
    a Tiberium cloud ability, where the Tiberium gases will corrode enemy 
    armour, weakening them which makes them more vulnerable to enemy fire, as
    well as damaging them. They are slow units, and pack heavy armour, so high
    Tier 3 aircraft will be the means of defeating the Aftershock with little
    consequence.

    The Underminer is an artillery unit, but it is a strange unit, it will not
    fire their artillery shell into the air, like all the other artillery units
    that are out there, instead, it will fire an artillery shell, that is 
    burrowed under the earth, attacking and blowing up the enemy from below. 
    This is actually a useful ability, it prevents the enemy from pinpointing
    where the attack came from, so if you manage to hide your Underminers well,
    they will be hard to pinpoint and destroy, so that is another benefit as 
    well. However, they are the hardest unit to unlock, given that you need to 
    be at Level 20 to do this, but they are a powerful unit.

                 Detects stealthed units
    
    
    The outpost is the same as the GDI outpost, except that instead of 
    detecting stealth units, it will be able to provide a field of stealth
    around it, which allows for your units to hide and wait for the enemy
    to attack the outpost, and your units can give a nice surprise to the
    enemy. This gives the outpost the classic Nod touch, and with this, you
    can slowly advance towards the enemy with this, and they will be unable
    to see you unless you are detected by the enemy.

    The Bunker is just right for infantry, it holds 2 infantry units, but what
    it lacks in capacity, it makes up for in defence, whilst in there, the 
    infantry within can still cause havoc, and when the bunker is destroyed,
    they can cause havoc outside the bunker, retaining the health in which
    they had when they entered. With the Reinforce upgrade, it grants a machine
    gun on the bunker, which is useful for dishing out a bit more damage, but
    it will also upgrade the armour from Heavy to Reinforced, and that will make
    it take more of a punishment to destroy, and force the enemy to use blast-
    based units to effectively take them out. A few reinforced bunkers with 
    a good mix of infantry is a pretty hard thing to take out. And with the Nod
    touch, the bunker will be stealthed when it is upgraded.

     Abilities - Burrow
    
    
    This is your main defence against enemy tanks, the Viper Turret is armed
    with a cannon, which is only useful to take out ground units, but it is 
    effective nonetheless. Reinforce here will only make the Viper Turret harder
    to remove, it will shove the armour rating from Heavy to Reinforced, as well
    as the other perks such as increased range with it, making it a nightmare if 
    these are used en masse against Offense Crawlers, as well as it being 
    stealthed when it does not fire on enemies.

     Abilities - Burrow
    
    
    Rocket Pods are your standard Anti-Aircraft turrets, they are good against
    aircraft, given that their rockets are the best counter to enemy aircraft,
    as well as doing pretty decent damage against enemy infantry and medium
    armour vehicles. Unlike GDI, in which they can link their turrets together, 
    the Rocket Pod will have the ability to Burrow underground when they want to
    stay hidden. With their Reinforce ability, they will have their armour 
    upgraded to Reinforced, as well as having better range and weaponry to 
    fire on the enemy.

     Armour    - Reinforced
    
     Abilities - Light and Medium units travel instantly between tunnels
    
    
    The Tunnel Network is basically a means for travel. If you have a Crawler
    and place a Tunnel Network in one location, and travel to another and place
    a tunnel network there, it will allow light and medium units, which is most
    of your forces, through to travel instantly, and with the Expand Network
    option, it allows heavy units, so if you have tunnel networks in place, and
    change to the Offense Class, the enemy may get a nasty surprise when a few
    Mammoth Tanks roll out of the tunnel network and into the back of their 
    established position. Used wisely, this is a useful structure, similar to
    the Tunnel Networks the GLA had in C&C Generals. The difference between
    this and GDI tunnels is that Nod has the ability to stealth their tunnel
    networks

     Armament  - Flamethrower Blast
     Armour    - Reinforced
    
     Abilities - Fuel Air Bomb
    
    
    The Flame Column has a short range, which is a problem as a defensive
    structure, however, their flames, although they really won't be facing
    enemy buildings, do pretty good damage to enemies who get too close, it 
    will fry infantry, as well as melting the armour of tanks, which does a 
    fair bit of damage to them over time. And like all other flame weapons,
    it will slowly burn the enemy, and when the flame column is no longer 
    firing at them, they will still take damage until the flames subside.

     Armament  - Obelisk of Light Laser
     Armour    - Reinforced
    
     Abilities - Spectrum Light System
    
    
    The most iconic Nod defensive structure that you have, the Obelisk of
    Light is the powerful laser weapon that Nod has to offer, given that the
    structure is the best means to defeat enemy heavy vehicles. The Obelisk
    of Light is hard to destroy as it is, and enemy heavy vehicles, when
    facing several Obelisk of Light structures, will either suffer losses, 
    which is exactly what you want, or damage them until they retreat. The
    Prism Light will allow the laser light of the Obelisk, when hitting the
    enemy, to branch out and hit other targets as well.

     Armament  - Incinerator Blast
     Armour    - Reinforced
    
     Abilities - Increased blast damage when focused on an enemy
    
    
    Similar to the Focus Beam that the GDI forces have, the Incinerator is a 
    powerful flame type blast weapon that will do more damage to enemy units when
    it focus it's fire on them more, the longer that unit is targeted, and only
    that unit, the more damage it will take compared to targeting a new unit. 
    The Incinerator is a lot more powerful than the Flame Column, so you might
    want to remove them in order to save powerful and space. However, like most
    structures, it is most vulnerable to artillery, with their massive range and
    blast damage shells.

                 Stealth Mode
    
    
    The Disruption Tower is the Nod tower where it can provide a shield around
    an area, which makes the enemy defeat the shield before they can fire on
    any of your units inside the sphere, which is powerful as a base defense
    structure, as well as providing a stealth mode, which allows all your units
    to remain hidden, which is a powerful surprise ability, your enemy might
    think that they are walking on a deserted outpost, but in actuality, they
    are walking in on your massive defensive forces.

     Abilities - Tiberium Catalyst Missile
                 Emergency Detonation
    
    
    The Temple of Nod is a nice superweapon, and again, like the GDI Ion Cannon,
    the more time you let the weapon charge up, the more damage it will do. The
    missile itself will do a hell of a lot of blast damage, however, if you let
    it build up, it will attach Tiberium tanks to it, so when it blows up an
    area, the Tiberium will release in toxic clouds, which will corrode armour
    and damage enemies over time, which is the perfect time for your forces to
    roll in and mop up the enemies. In it's final stage, it will get a Tiberium
    Catalyst, which will fire Tiberium at all enemies inside the blast radius, to
    ensure nothing survives. You can also cause an emergency detonation if the
    enemies are getting too close to the temple. 
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [6.03] Support
    
    Nod Support forces are again, like their GDI counterparts, focussing on 
    mobility and the ability to dance around the enemy in the air, rather than
    staying in one place. With some typical Nod upgrades, such as using stealth
    on their Crawler to stay out of trouble, their mobility will make them 
    tough to fight.

                 Reclaiming Husks
    
    
    The Engineer in this game is more versatile than previous games, their
    primary role of capturing buildings has been removed, and now they are used
    to repair everything that belongs to friendly forces, they will repair
    infantry units, land units, aerial units, structures, everything. They have
    relatively weak armour though, and their attack is miserable, but they have
    very high mobility, which allows them to retreat if they come under attack.
    They are best deployed in teams of 3 to 4, it allows you to repair everything
    that comes under attack and the ability to heal themselves if they are
    targeted.

     Abilities - None
    
    
    The Venom is the basic Nod aircraft, the same aircraft from the Third Tiberium
    War, but this time, instead of a gun or laser, it is armed with rocket pods,
    which makes them the standard anti-air air unit of the game as well as being
    decent against enemy infantry and doing some good damage to medium-armour
    vehicles, but it will do little damage against enemy heavy units. Note that 
    this is the basic unit, after all, it does onlny cost 3 command points, and 
    it won't survive long in the line of the enemy fire, a few rockets is all that
    is need to find a suitable antedote.

     Armour   - Medium Aircraft
    
     Abilities - None
    
    
    The Cobra is a new aircraft, it is fielded directly to fight against enemy 
    tank forces, with their powerful cannon. The gift of flight allows them to 
    perform hit and run attacks early on in the game against enemy tank forces 
    with little in the means of rely except by rocket attacks. Their cannon will 
    later become increasingly useless in the game as their cannon cannot penetrate
    the heavy armour of units such as Mammoth Tanks. However, early in the game,
    this can ruin any tanker's day.

     Armour   - Medium
    
     Abilities - Tiberium Shells
    
    
    The Marauder is the stock standard tank that everyone has to have, but it
    is more of a light vehicle than anything else, since it is armed with a 
    gattling gun to shoot infantry, which is a main part of most light vehicles,
    but possesses medium armour, making themselves weak to cannon fire. They will
    pack Tiberium Shells, which will decrease the armour of the target it is 
    firing at, making them take more damage, as well as doing some damage of 
    its own over time. However, do not that guns aren't useful against any sort
    of armour at all.

                 System Restore
    
    
    Armed with a repair beam, the Scalpel is basically the Nod answer to the
    GDI Spanner, it is basically a flying repair unit, but the difference and 
    reason for the extra 3 Command Point cost is the System Restore ability, the
    ability to remove a negative debuff off one of your friendly units for the
    trade of removing a positive buff off one of your enemies, which is a nice
    trade, but a waste of 3 extra command points when you think about it, compared
    to the Sapnner.

    Not really a tyrant, it is just a tank with a bad attitude. It packs a 
    powerful laser weapon, which allows it to hunt crawlers with a cruel 
    attitude. It has the ability to burrow, an ability that allows it to 
    hide from the enemy crawlers long enough so that when they just stumble
    over the Tyrant, they will be getting a nasty shock. They will also have
    the Voice of Kane ability, which will increase the rate of fire of nearby
    allies.

    The Salamander will hvae some powerful rockets up it's sleeve, it is 
    basically the best counter you will have for aircraft, given that Nod
    forces aren't heavy on aircraft on the proviso that GDI aircraft still
    reign the skies. It does have the ability to purify the ground, it will
    burn the ground around it, which will damage all enemy units that 
    decide to walk in it's path, and it will expand until it is given orders
    to move.

    The Hijacker is back, and it is ready to hijack vehicles. It is still
    as annoying as ever for enemies to fight, the hijacker will stop the target
    vehicle and once it is done opening the door and killing the driver, it will
    take control of the vehicle, including all upgrades that are on it. This 
    makes them one of the first things the enemy will kill when an army is on
    the move. When the vehicle is destroyed, the Hijacker will get out of the
    vehicle and is able to take over another one. Definitely one to play around
    with on the battlefield.

    The Vertigo is back, and again, it is an aircraft with the ability to drop
    some powerful bombs on enemies. It is the Nod counterpart to the GDI Firehawk,
    but it doesn't get to carry missiles to shoot other aircraft though. It also
    has the ability to firebomb the enemy, which in large enemies will be able to
    create firestorms, deadly to large groups of enemies or enemies with a fair
    bit of health. They also have the supersonic thrusters that will fly them back
    to the MCV in order for a quicker reload of their bombs.

    The Leviathan is a powerful battleship, it is a powerful anti-ground unit with
    little recourse except for their weakness to lasers. It has three powerful 
    flame launchers, but only 2 can fire on the enemy at any given time, based on
    the angle of the attack and where the flamethrowers are located. It also has
    a few gun drones, small drones that fire their little guns on enemies that
    get too close, it is useful against infantry, however, it isn't that decent
    against aircraft, they don't linger long enough for them to do much damage.

    The Basilisk is a powerful little aircraft, it has the ability fire a few
    heavy lasers at the enemy, which will make it is a nice unit to go Crawler
    hunting with, since it can fly, target all types of crawlers, both on the
    ground and in their air, as well as packing the type of weapon that they are
    weak against, the laser. It also has the statis field, which allows all
    targeted units in an area invulnerable to enemy fire, which is a lovely
    little touch, but whilst they are invulnerable, they cannot do anything or
    move at all.

    The Medusa is a powerful artillery unit, except it is more of a flying 
    artillery unit, armed with a powerful flux beam that is dangerous against
    reinforced structures, as well as vehicles. It also packs an EMP missile,
    which makes them quite deadly against GDI forces, since this is the only
    Nod unit that has the ability to play with EMP powers. It also has the
    solidify matrix, which will heal units around it, which will repair all
    nearby units around the Medusa, which makes it a powerful addition to any
    army.
    
    
     --==Support Powers==--
    
     - Eyes of the People - 
    
     Cost: 10 Support Points
    
    This will increase the vision range and the attack range of all friendly units
    on the map for a short period of time, and as such, useful at the start of
    the game to scout out the area and ambush the enemy. 
    
    
     - Demoralise - 
    
     Cost: 10 Support Points
    
    This is a debuff, where it will decrease the enemy's speed to move around
    and their ability to dodge enemy fire within the target radius, useful to
    make an escape or just to get a better flanking position. 
    
    
     - Obelisk of Life - 
    
     Cost: 10 Support Points
    
    This will spawn an Obelisk of Life that will repair all damaged units for a
    period of time, and it will drop a veterancy crate upon it's destruction when
    the time is up.
    
    
     - Cloaking Field - 
    
     Cost: 20 Support Points
    
    This will activate a cloaking field on the target radius for a short period
    of time, which will be the best way to make an ambush happen, and it will 
    catch the enemy off guard.
    
    
     - Burrow Mines - 
    
     Cost: 20 Support Points
    
    This will drop some Incendiary mines on a target location, stealthed and
    hidden, and it is best used on chokepoints where the enemy has no choice but
    to walk through your lovely minefield. 
    
    
     - EMP Countermeasures - 
    
     Cost: 20 Support Points
    
    Given that you are fighting GDI most of the time, you will need these
    countermeasures since they will automatically reactivate any unit that has
    suffered the negative effects of EMP attacks, either from mines or as an 
    ability, but it will not undo the damage in which the EMP was delivered. 
    
    
     - Hack Radar - 
    
     Cost: 30 Support Points
    
    This will hack the enemy's radar and jam it, which will stop them from 
    accessing the radar and visibility from their allies, and it will case 
    Tiberium Upgrade Crystal beacons to actually appear in different locations
    and it is only useful against human opponents. 
    
    
     - Decoy Army - 
    
     Cost: 30 Support Points
    
    This will create decoys of actual units that you have, but as a trade
    off for having no attacking power, they will be able to take 4 times the
    punishment for what a normal unit can sustain, but there is a time limit
    on these guys. 
    
    
     - Firestorm Ignition - 
    
     Cost: 30 Support Points
    
    This will require flames on the battlefield from your units and allies 
    and it will turn all these flames into powerful firestorms which cause massive
    blast damage to the units in the nearby area. 
    
    
     - Subterranean Strike - 
    
     Cost: 40 Support Points
    
    This will create drills from the target area to rise from the ground, and it
    will cause massive damage to all unfortunate units that are in the path of the
    drills as they rise to the surface. 
    
    
     - Risen Monolith - 
    
     Cost: 40 Support Points
    
    The monolith will rise out of the ground, and it will last for a pretty good
    period of time, in which it will use it's powerful laser to destroy all units
    that decide to come down for a visit.
    
    
     - Hand of Legion - 
    
     Cost: 40 Support Points
    
    Legion, the AI developed from CABAL will spawn a Heroic Hijacker at a location
    you desire, and this will allow you to use this hijacker to quickly take 
    control of an enemy vehicle, which can be very destructive if you manage to
    take control of the Heroic Mammoth at the back of the enemy's army.
    
    
     - Tiberium Infusion - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    The power of Tiberium will be infused into all friendly units, it will 
    straight away take the cooldown for all abilities down to zero, as well as 
    decrease the cooldown time for all abilities for a period of time, which
    isn't as useful as you think, cooldown abilities are pretty rare in this 
    game. 
    
    
     - Vein Detonation - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    The detonation of a Tiberium vein will cause the ground to shake around an 
    area for a short period of time, which will damage enemies and then release
    a cloud of toxic Tiberium gas that will corrode the enemy's armour and they
    will take damage as their armour is significantly weaker and hence, easier to
    kill. 
    
    
     - Mark of Kane - 
    
     Cost: 50 Support Points
    
    The Mark of Kane is bestowed only on the best of the best of Nod forces and
    this ability will allow all units the motivation to fire their weapons faster,
    which will make them a hell of a lot more powerful, but I still think that 
    Vein Detonation is better.
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*

     - Defensive Matrix - 
    
     Type - Crawler Upgrade

    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [7.01] The Forgotten
    
    From the Mutant Hovel, the Forgotten are the mutants who have had their
    bodies mutated with the Tiberium, and they are the image of what happens when
    Tiberium comes into contact with humanity. At the Mutant Hovel, the tech
    structure, you can hire three units, the Visceroid, the Ironback and the
    Scrapbus.
    
     - Visceroid - 
    
     Role - Suicide Bomber
    
     Armament - Suicide Blast
     Armour   - Light
    
     Abilities - Explode
    
    
    The Visceroid is basically a three legged unit, the result of mutation 
    between various animals into an animal, if you can call it that, that when
    you order it, it will explode and deal a fair bit of blast damage, and if
    you can get a large number of these little critters, you can use this to
    destroy the enemy strike force with relatively few losses on your own 
    forces. 
    
    
     - Forgotten Ironback - 
    
     Role - Anti-Vehicle
    
     Armament - Cannon Smash
     Armour   - Medium
    
     Abilities - Leap
    
    
    The Ironback is a walker like unit, it is the result for a fair bit of
    scrap pieces, and it attacks by using it's body to smash the enemy, and it
    is pretty much a point-blank cannon attack, given that it is good against
    medium armour. They also have the ability to leap to a target location where
    you want as well. 
    
    
     - Forgotten Scrapbus - 
    
     Role - Anti-Infantry
    
     Armament - Quad Guns
     Armour   - Heavy
    
     Abilities - None
    
    
    The Scrapbus is basically a heavily armoured vehicle, and the downside is 
    that they will only be good against infantry and aircraft, they are really
    outclassed by conventional tanks. The only thing that is decent, apart from
    shredding infantry, it has a lot of health to play with, so it is a good
    meat shield from the enemy whilst your own forces advance.
    
    *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
    [8.01] Tech Structures
    
    Tech structures litter the map, basically, it is to your advantage to 
    capture these buildings. They cannot be destroyed, and they are all weak
    to damage when it is under the control of enemies. It is all reinforced, so
    blast units will be useful here. 
    
     - Tiberium Control Network Hub - 
    
    This is in your normal Skirmish map, they are important since that these are
    the ones granting you victory points, and it will grant points to those who
    control more hubs, which will always be an odd number, like 5. 
    
    
     - Uplink Tower - 
    
    The Uplink Tower is basically a uplink to your Crawler force, it will 
    provide a deployment area for your Crawlers as long as it is under your
    control.
    
    
     - Artillery Turret - 
    
    The Artillery Turret is a blast-type weapon, it will rain down artillery
    on enemies that walk into it's path, and it will do lot of damage, but it
    cannot hit air forces. 
    
    
     - Anti-Air Turret - 
    
    The AA Turret is structure that fires rockets at enemy air units, but it
    can only attack air units, since it cannot target ground units, after all,
    it is meant to be Anti-AIR!
    
    
     - Mutant Hovel - 
    
    Like discussed in the chapter above, the Mutant Hovel allows you to hire 
    units that are belonging to the Forgotten.
    
    
     - Refueling Station - 
    
    You see the little wells on the battlefield with the crates around it? This
    is what it is, a refueling station, it is a source of both green veterancy
    crates and the blue Tiberium cores for the offensive players.
    
    
     - Sonic Fence - 
    
    The last of the tech structures, it is a fence that you control, that can
    allow access to an area, and when it is activated, it will deny such 
    access. It will not let most weapons and units through, but you can just
    fly over it, or destroy it.

    [C] Webmaster Information
    
    This is where all the sites that this guide can appear on are listed. If the
    site name is not on this list, that means that either they are accepted by
    me but not listed, due to logistical reasons (this is the same copyright 
    section as all the other guides, and no point listing a Civ 4 site on a Sims
    game), or they are not allowed outright. 
    
    Anyway, POINT OUT ALL SITES NOT LISTED HERE. It will be up to me what site is
    allowed or disallowed.
    
    www.GameFAQs.com <Master Copy> 
    www.NeoSeeker.com 
    www.SuperCheats.com 
    
    NeoSeeker and SuperCheats will have the guides a full day after it appears on
    GameFAQs. This is because those two sites grab any new update from me from
    GameFAQs itself, so if you are itching for the newest version, please check
    www.GameFAQs.com first.
    
    It will NEVER BE ALLOWED TO APPEAR ON

    Why? Because they stole some of my works before, and I will not forget that.

    If you do sell it, and you are caught, I will launch court proceedings if 
    necessary. If a website steals this, I will have your site shut down, either
    through talking to your server, Internet Service Provider, and if you are a 
    big site, through your advertisers. It might start with a small email of 
    request, but I can snowball it. In fact, I will. 
    
    You also cannot claim this guide as your own. You are not allowed to use this
    guide and submit this to another website, claiming it as your own work. I will
    google search random phrases from my own FAQ just to ensure that it hasn't 
    been stolen or hijacked by other people.
    
    I am also not affiliated with any corporation, and I was not paid by any
    developer, publisher or distributor for the production of this guide. This was
    done solely out of my own free time and will, a dedication to the video gaming
    industry in general.
