* RedChina: VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals features, oddly enough, a combination of the two varieties. Chinese society is clearly of the second type, which makes sense, as the game takes place in our timeline during the 2020s, but their military, with its [[ZergRush tactics]] and units, is based on that of the first type. [[AllThereInTheManual Not that it is seen in the game]] but the background mentions that China's new generation leaders enacted a whole set of reforms and civil liberties. It still has the traces of authoritarianism but there is an implication that by 2020s China is a relatively free society with a militaristic bent like the United States, making it a wholly different type.

* [[YouHaveResearchedBreathing You Have Given Your GLA Workers Some Shoes]]: In ''CommandAndConquerGenerals'', the GLA workers ask for new shoes. In the expansion, you can research/"purchase" shoes to enhance their speed (from the black market no less). Because that's, quoting the description for it, what "they've been asking for".

The Scout Drone Chinook is an unmanned propeller-using aerial vehicle, whose primary function the main USA air transport unit, and is intel capable of transporting up to 8 infantry units or one or two vehicles. It is also the USA's supply gatherer, capable of loading up $600 worth of supplies in one go.

Combat Chinooks are fitted with extra armour and fireports, designed to create a safe, fast vehicle from which the USA's formidable infantry can fire on their enemies.

* AwesomePersonnelCarrier: It can transport a maximum of two vehicles and two infantry units, eight infantry units alone, or a single construction dozer
** As well as being able to do all the things that a regular Chinook could - collect supplies, transport units, and perform combat drops - the Combat Chinook also has gunports (like the Humvee) that allow infantrymen transported inside to fire at enemies within range.
** Fast, agile and equipped with a point defense laser, a Combat Chinook loaded with Missile Defender and Pathfinder was a serious threat to almost every type of unit.
* FastRoping: As a special ability, Rangers can exit the Chinook via four ropes without the Chinook needing to land. Rangers can rappel themselves directly into civilian structures to garrison them. If the structure they rappel into is already garrisoned by enemies, the Rangers will simply take it over by eliminating the enemies inside it.
* WorkerUnit: It's carries the most supplies out of all Supply Units, 600 supplies per load, but takes considerable time lowering the net down for said supplies. The real benefit is in its speed, allowing for
gathering and detecting stealth vehicles.

* TheDragonsTeeth: They have, besides silo-launched missiles, nuclear artillery, which is unique among the long-range units in the game because its nuclear shells cannot be intercepted with missile defense systems. In fact, in the expansion there is a Chinese Nuclear General - and as you would've guessed it - whose strategy revolves mostly around The Dragons Teeth. Improved nuclear tank engines and shells, nuclear carpet bombing, nuclear-tipped fighter missiles, cheaper nuclear silos, you name it. Played very straight here.

Added DiffLines:

* MagikarpPower: The GLA start off the weakest (their WorkerUnit can't even fight back against the other faction's), collects resources at a fraction of the others' rates, have no air units, and their units are overall weaker. But if they survive long enough, they become very powerful thanks to upgraded fast-moving self-repairing vehicles. Their vehicles work like this as well, gaining better weapons for every vehicle wreck they move across.
