Throwback Thursday for 14th January

Recommended Posts



This week’s instalment of Throwback Thursday goes back to Command & Conquer Generals in 2003 to look at another iconic Command & Conquer unit. Every Command & Conquer game has had a big tank for one of the factions. In the Tiberium universe we got the GDI Mammoth Tank, in the Red Alert universe (from Red Alert 2 onwards) we got the Soviet Apocalypse Tank. In Command & Conquer Generals, the tradition continued with the Chinese Overlord Tank. And of all the big tanks, the Overlord was probably the most versatile in terms how it be upgraded. Add the Battle Bunker to give the ability to garrison infantry inside it. Add some extra fire power with Gatling Cannon upgrade, or keep your forces healed at all times with the addition of a Propaganda Tower. The strategy with this upgrade system was to decide what upgrade you needed, as only one of them could be applied to any Overlord Tank at a time.


Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.

I had a friend who literally was afraid of this tank.... xD

Due to my 'nurturing' personality, I tended to rely on propaganda upgrades.
