GAMES: Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath – ZOCOM Structures

kaneswrath

 

While GDI is already a technologically advanced army, the Zone Operations Command subfaction considers that statement quaint and makes use of experimental modifications to already potent weapons. They rely more on sonic weaponry, which they even arm their aircraft and heavy infantry with. However, they lack proper artillery units.

 

 

Structures
