Angry Mobs. Angry mobs are a GLA unit. Interestingly they cannot be transported through the tunnel networks either.
Nuke Launcher. The Chinese use a vehicle called a Nuke Cannon. It has the longest range in the game.
Rebel Ambush. Rebel Ambush requires being at least a 3-star general. Technical training makes all new Technicals veteran units.
Steal cash from civilian villages.. There are not civilian villages in "Generals". A supply stash is your main source of money, especially in the early phases of the game.
$10,000. In skirmishes you start out with $10,000, but in the campaigns the amount of money varies. In the expansion pack "Zero Hour", you can choose the starting amount of money.
Particle Uplink Cannon. The particle cannon fires a beam of energy on the intended target. It is also the only superweapon that can be controlled after you activate it.
Blue. The blue ore is highly-explosive but provides the most money. The green ore is the cheapest, yet most abundant. Red and yellow ores do not exist.
Temple of Nod. The Temple of Nod also allowed the construction of Hunter-Seeker drones. A NOD Tech Center was required to be built before a Temple of NOD becomes available.
Hassan. Hassan had attempted to frame Anton Slavik for treason. However, the truth was discovered and Hassan was publicly executed after Kane had regained control of NOD.
Tratos. A vaccine or cure was proven to be ineffective. One of the game's missions is to rescue Tratos from a NOD prison using only three units (Umagon, a Ghostalker and a hijacked NOD unit).
The Forgotten. They are also known as Shiners and mostly lived in abandoned cities. Although they are humanoid, they will eventually become Tiberium beasts when the mutation is completed.
Philadelphia. The Philadelphia serves as GDI's main base of operations. NOD's leader Kane announced his return to power to GDI by hacking into the Philadelphia's computers.

Worker. When a USA unit is destroyed a pilot leaves the unit if it has achieved 1, 2 or 3 chevrons. You can then put the pilot into another unit giving that unit, the pilots rank.

It is powerful and can be made even more powerful by sacrificing friendly vehicles which the Avatar attaches to itself to gain that vehicle's power. However, it cannot attack air units.
