Good to see you again, Red Counter-Strike mod followers! Today, I will be posting news about infantry and other changes related to them that will take place in Red Counter Strike:
First off, there will no longer be an Engineer
as a Tier-1 utility/engineer infantry that captures structures and repairs bridges and buildings. The old engineer had been moved up to Tier-3 instead for a good reason too.
The allied Support G.I.
and the soviet Combat Technician
are now here to deal with the building capturing role as a Tier-1 utility infantry. They both are armed with Shotguns to deal with infantry threats if they come in too close to both units.

Furthermore, they have peroneal laptop cases to aid in hacking any building's master control terminal and taking control of it without fully exhausting the unit like the original Engineer
unit. Remember that one support GI or combat technician can hack and affirms control on one structure at a time. If another structure is hacked, then the control of the previous one is lost. It will take time for the laptops to recharge their batteries until you can send your units to take control of other structures. It is good to keep multiple support GIs or combat techs around because of the two recently mentioned reasons. You can also garrison both units inside garrisonable structures like bunkers, pillboxes, or civilian buildings to keep them from being harmed; if they are killed, the hacking link between the laptop and master control terminal will be lost.

The bridge's strengths will be tripled until the engineers arrive at Tier-3 to repair them. Also, there are numerous ways to get around a destroyed bridge, be it by using amphibious transports or utility helicopters available for both sides as a standard. Moreover, both units can be issued to enter each side's IFV for vehicle and building repair duties as they can install the modular turrets that can aid in such tasks in either the LAV-25 piranhas and BRDM-2s or the T-55 tanks.
To counter the aforementioned unit's hacking capabilities, Engineers
are now equipped with beacons to either warp-in or paradrop a U-C/EW-AV (Unmanned Combat/Electronic Warfare Aerial Vehicle) drones.

Both drones have Attack
and/or Electronic Counter Measures
mods. You can deploy them to change their configurations. However, they will have to land to do so. Here is a list of both drone's specifications:
On mode-2, the drones can cut
the electronic link between the hacker and the building under his control, allowing it to be captured by another support GI or combat tech. Engineers can upgrade your low defenses by either adding extra layers of defenses or updating their weaponry, or even adding new abilities to them, like stealth/cloak detection.

are the heart of any infantry lead assaults. They act as military police and political figures as well as field officers if needed. At rank 0, they can increase the rate of fire of all infantry units and some vehicular units by 10% and can call in BRDM-1s. The bonuses of said units are dependent on their rank, to which the higher the rank, the more bonuses commissaries has. Though it is worth noting that his reinforcements ability will cost more credits and take more time to call in as their rank progress.

The allied hero Tanya is no longer referred to as an individual hero per-se. Now TANYA
is an operative from the TANYA program
. These elite female soldiers are rigorously trained for special operations and to serve as liaisons for HARDLOCK
agents. Nearly every TANYA operative is armed with an XM-29 OICW and a beacon to call in an MQ-1 Predator
for support, with the former’s usage seemingly obvious and the latter is typically deployed against buildings and vehicles; they are also equipped with latest electronic warfare pods that can be used against the aforementioned shutting down any unit or building. If the commander proved his/her competence, they could requisition another TANYA operator, thus increasing the number present on the battlefield. Also, it is worth noting that all TANYA operators are trained to withstand mentally and psychologically demanding; are also equipped with special masks to counter various viral weaponry and special suits to counter radiation effects or acid poisoning.

The arch-nemesis of TANYA operatives are VOYEVODA Operatives;
they are highly trained soviet snipers part of the soviet union's special operation forces program VOYEVODA
that focuses on training Elite female snipers. They ware a ghillie suit so as to blend with the environment. They are armed with the state-of-the-art 8KW laser sniper rifle potent against infantry and light vehicles. Also, they can be deployed to lay on the ground to shoot an overcharged shoot that can penetrate thicker vehicular armor and/or cause more damage, though they cannot sustain said shots for safety purposes.

That is all that I have for you today, folks!
