GAMES: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Empire of the Rising Sun Units

faction_empire

The Empire of the Rising Sun has a mixture of fast and highly adaptable units. Their infantry and ships are very strong, however they lack conventional aircraft. Instead, they deploy light walkers and submarines which change their form and field role at will, mostly turning into jet planes or helicopters. They can place structures anywhere on the map thanks to their Nanocore system, and their support powers increase their units’ durability or enable suicide runs.
