So at last the Soviets get a commando, and what a beast of a Commando he is!



Step one was deciding how strong his assault rifle was allowed to be vs vehicles. The decision is that it is acceptable for Boris to be able to destroy any single low tech vehicle, even if that vehicle is expressly anti-infantry.
There was no desire to see Boris able to destroy groups of anti-infantry vehicles.

If MBT do not have gun upgrades, there is no point in them coming up against Boris, he will quickly massacre them!

Something new which may interest Boris fans, that do appreciate how 'nerfed' Boris is sounding, Boris can now target aerial units!
He will not do as much damage vs air units, but for aircraft with weaker anti-infantry capabilities, Boris is a unit to be avoided!

Lets get onto the main event, the Airstrike!



The airstrike is not the same as in Yuri's revenge, it is better! due to coding issues, this version of the airstrike does not come in from the edge of the map, but instead swoops down from above the target in a style similar to RA3 Natasha's airstrike ability.
This means that there is no extra wait time depending on where the structure that is targeted is placed on the map.
The other side effect of this parabolic swoop style airstrike is that currently (this is a coding shortfall) it is completely impossible to stop once it has been successfully called.

To make up for this, the airstrike starts significantly weaker. You only start calling a single MiG, and you must rank up in order to gain additional MiG's (one for each rank).
Worst still, you can only gain rank with kills from your assault rifle, not the easy damage that you can do with the airstrike.

The final piece of information is actually some good news, Boris gets a time limited area based airstrike call in. The idea is that if Boris is ganged up on by a bunch of vehicles, he can call in an area based airstrike to soften them up!
This is available 60 seconds after Boris has been built, and is ready every 60 seconds after use. It does not get stronger by increasing rank!

Its great to see the Soviets get their Commando unit. I alway thought Allies were slighlty favored due to Tanya.

Cool, though being able to just shoot air units sounds a little odd and unnecessary, unless maybe its a weapon from a deploy ability or something. Perhaps he could even target the air unit with the painter and a Mig comes in to fight it? #Tongue

Boris is the Chuck Norris of the Soviet union!

It is just a bit of fun, to go with his whole "I can do anything!" style.

Your idea sounds like a much cooler idea, but I will not be coding something like that in at this point. Maybe in the future.
