Following on the heels of the first expansion to Command & Conquer: Red Alert — Counterstrike, comes Command & Conquer: Red Alert — The Aftermath — it's time to clean up the mess! This gut-wrenching sequel will test and challenge you through 18 new missions, created by the original design team.
Seven new units ranging in capability from short to extreme range, wielding light and heavy armor and, in most cases, massive destructive force are introduced for this ultimate showdown. Six have unique weapons including heat-seeking missiles, an atomic bomb, harmonic shock wave, missile salvo and two are equipped with a lightning discharge. But don't sell the seventh one short — you now have access to a Field Mechanic that can repair vehicles in the field!
The new units include a Tesla Tank, the Mutually Assured Destruction Tank (a.k.a. M.A.D. Tank), a Missile Sub, the ChronoTank with its ability to "chronoshift" itself to any place on the battlefield and a Demolition Truck. In addition to the aforementioned Field Mechanic, the last new unit is the Shock Trooper, an infantry unit that carries a portable Tesla generator with the capability of shocking any unit or structure with large electricity discharges.
Command & Conquer: Red Alert — The Aftermath comes with 100 new multi-player maps including more than 25 Mega Maps that double the size of the battle arena. In addition, there are two- and four-player specially designed maps as well. The package also contains upgraded program files for the basic game (Red Alert) itself and eight new techno/industrial rock songs to add to the original soundtrack. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
