A partial mod conversion of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3.
This mod tries to improve, fix, and add what Red Alert 3 missed, forgot, or unable to do.
When the Allies needed a new vehicle to cope with the possibility of facing Soviet tanks, several countries opted in. In the end, the French Mirage Tank became the winner of the defense contract and went into mass production. The German candidate, the JgPzK 3 “Wolfhound”, the only other real competitor, was only declined because the sneaky Mirage was deemed ‘more survivable’.
Germany still had quite a few test vehicles left, and redeployed them near the Switzerland border. Several field modifications, as well as new ammunition types made the Wolfhound (sometimes referred to as “Jagdwolf”) a powerful adversary during training missions.
When the Soviets invaded Germany, the divisions in the south where forced to redeploy in Switzerland, hoping to stop the Russians from reaching Geneva. Here, the Wolfhound became a lethal opponent. The L52 10,5 cm Panzerabwehrkanone made short work of any Soviet armor in the narrow mountain passes. Normally, the Wolfhound can only turn its massive cannon a few degrees in either direction without turning the hull. In the open, this can cause problems. But when your enemy can only come from one side, that didn’t matter. The high velocity anti-tank shells could even penetrate several Hammer tanks in one short, before the carbon-tungsten slug came to a halt. Only Apocalypse tanks seem to be able to withstand these shells.
If needed, the Wolfhound can deploy into a bunker-like state, which unlocks the superstructure containing the cannon, allowing it to turn more (still not 360 degrees), and bolstering its defence.
Wolfhounds and their divisions have some of the highest kill-death ratio’s while defending against the Soviets. It was only regrettable that the Soviets managed to sneak passed these tank killers and take Geneva regardless. Allied High Command did airlift the remaining Wolfhounds out of Switzerland for active redeployment, though it isn’t decided if they should enter mass production.
