GAMES: Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars – Scrin Structures

cnc3

 

The alien race known as Scrin has a strong army of few, but specialized unit types. Their units are expensive and slow, but powerful, and some of them can use the Tiberium-based technology to increase their firepower. They can heal in Tiberium, and their aircraft perform better during ion storms, which the Scrin can summon at will.
