    - Every unit has secondary functions. The allied tank for instance is able to concentrate radar beams to be used as a scouting unit.
    - Altough not visible on the screens, there's going to be massive damaging in RA3, with weapons carving colossal craters into the ground.
    - Most structures are placeable on water for extra cost.
    - Ships can only leave shore on sand, so its crucial to defend these areas.
    - The article writer claims that the impressive graphics don't shine through the screens. In his opinion, graphics are much better compared to CnC3, and he's especially flabbergasted by the animations.
    - The Russians have a submarine called the 'Akula' which isn't simply deadly against ships, but is able to train divers as well.
    - The Bullfrog transport ship doesn't have to set shore, its able to 'shoot' out the units it's carrying
    - The Japanese Seawing bomber is able to transform into a submarine simply by falling into the water.
    - Sea battles will be crucial in this game.
    - The Japanese enroll a water-affin tank called 'Tsunami', which is both heavily armoured and powerful, and slower on land than in water.
    - The campaign can be co-operatively played with a friend from start to finish. If there's no one to play it with, you can choose between an array of AI allies to fight the war.
    - StarCraft2's lead designer worked on RA3 before he went to Blizzard.
    - Gameplay will be much slower, an aspect, along with the beta, that the team concluded from TW. The writer confirms this slowdown.
    - Enemy soldiers freeze upon Allied dogs barking.
    - The Mobile V4 is able to swim as well, but its main draw points is the precise and area-effective attack.
    - The Russians submarine, the Stingray Nasad, sports tesla-launchers, and is a rather small, but fast unit.
    - The writer praises the smooth animations, explosion effects and water in general again and again, its crazy!
    - Live-action FMVs are back mixed with CGI and outdoor scenes!
    - The writer holds that RA3 wont be as good as SC2, but damn close, and even better than RA2.
    - No Yuri.
    - Atmosphere is top notch.
    - Expansion pack is already planned.

    Sweet Jebus, I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. Hell, the other day at work I was telling a customer about C&C and how much fun the Red Alert games were (and how meh Generals was). Seems like I'll have to budget in yet another game to buy this year, though for RA3, I think I can squeeze it in :thumbs2:

    I hate the 1st red alert, but RA2 proved me wrong, I can't wait for this.

    Wait, no Shoviet Nyunion ? :(

    I absolutely loved RA1, and didn't really like the turn it took in 2. It's too bad to see this is still more "lighthearted" as they put it, but oh well, i'll buy it anyways. Especially for co-op campaign.

    If you buy Kanes Wrath expansion for C&C3 you get a Beta key to play RA3 Beta.

    I wonder what the story is gonna be. I sure hope it's not another rehash of "Soviet Union tries to conquer the world". :D

    I'd expect nothing else from Red Alert. :p 

    Anyway, I thought the story had already been released?
    It was something along the lines of "Soviet's have a functioing time machine and they go back and put themselves back into power etc.

    Also, I can't see that CNC Games link at work, is it screenies or more info?
