Hello everyone, we're back again with another update for ROTR development.



The 'Oracle' Forward Reconnaissance Drone is a recent addition to the United States arsenal. Introduced just before the Russo-European War, the Recon Drone for short is the result of the United States Marine Corps requiring a fast, easily-deployable eye on the ground for special operations teams. Airborne drones have the disadvantage of being easy prey for anti-aircraft fire, and Recon Drones can be deployed en masse to frontlines to provide crystal-clear reconnaissance for ground teams. Furthermore, Recon Drones are equipped with a targeting laser that can relay information to distant strike bombers and artillery crews. Its sensors can also detect mines hidden in the soil, and a robotic arm can extend and disable them.

The new Recon Drone is built from the US Command Center at tier 0, and is their new scout. The Predator Scout Drone meanwhile has been upped to tier 2 and can now detect stealth from the start.




The Russian Supply Wartruck now requires Assault Armaments to get its iconic gun. The new 30 mm auto-cannon does more damage and has the addition of smoke grenades to make up for the lack of it as standard.



As always, we would like to remind all of you out there that there will be another 1.86 test build live stream on this Sunday:



Countdown until the stream starts

Also, in case you missed our last stream, you can check it out on our Youtube channel here.

I guess so.

I use various source images to make that particular turret.

Very good, I love the new Recon Drone. smile.gif

I would also say that the new changes pleased me a lot, especially the Russia changes, (makes the faction much more "technical" to use).

Okay, USA has received a big-eyed tracked drone. Thats good biggrin.gif For the Predator, I think that it will not be armed now, hmm?

Russian Wartruck having its gun as upgrade, good. Makes use of the upgrade worthy even more thought makes it defenseless in early stages of the game. But that makes a bigger emphasis for the player to defend them with other untis or Kashtan.

It is so true that its funny and sad at the same time.

No worries, the Predator isn't armed. It does however have a few new tricks (one being that it has a new voice).

Did the main china crawler have that turret in shockwave also?

Is the targeting laser any different?

Well I have a question about this new recon drone for the USA. Can it also detect hidden cameo units(or stealth units) and what range can it detect?
Can't wait to try it when it is ready to deploy.

It can't (unless we're talking about mines obviously) and it's already available in the newest test build.

^ I assume you mean the Predator drone considering the Recon drone doesn't talk.

As for other drones getting voiced that's unlikely.

Yeah I did. The predator will always be the recon drone to me, and the recon will forever be known as Kawaiibot.

Anyway, shame about the voices. I was hoping for a new couple for some of the older ones like the viper, black-hawk or Felin :/
