The Tengu is a lightly armoured robot capable of hovering over water and armed with a machine gun effective against infantry. It is capable of snuffing out sneaky disguised Chinese Saboteurs, but has to be controlled by a Robot Ops Control Center.
- In the Covert Ops mission Eclipse, Tengus appear among the enemy Pacific Front forces. They'll shut down once all Robot Ops Control Centers and designated War Factories are destroyed.
Behind the scenes
The Mecha Tengu's voxel is a public asset and can be used by other modders. The link can be found here.
- Prior to version 3.3.4, the Tengu already existed as an unused unit that could be spawned through the map editor introduced in version 3.3.3.
- The Tsurugi Powersuit's unit ID is actually named TENGU, while the Tengu's unit ID is MECHA. In addition, the Tsurugi's armor type is called "tengu" as well.
- Without doubt, this unit originates from the Red Alert 3 Mecha Tengu. It uses a similar model and armament, but stripped of its ability to transform into a fighter jet (most likely due to engine limit).
