I hate it when people compare TR to Russia.

    We're more like the Roman Republic.

    What I don't get is the NC calling themselves space murica, the TR has fast-firing low damage weapons like murica, the TR has sexy uniforms like murica, the TR work to bring peace to the world like murica, the TR likes to use old but still amazing guns like murica (m16 variants), etc etc.

    The only comparison I can make from the NC to America is the vanguard, reaver (which sort of looks like the apache), and freedom theme. That's it.

    Of course it's not Russia, you're obviously fascist, not communist.

    Socialist, actually. But the NC are not even close to being democratic, they're an oligarchy.

    Which is, what some would argue, what contemporary America is. ;)

    It's also what Ukraine is and look at what a beautiful position they are right now.

    Why comparing the PS2 factions anyway. Maybe Russia is more like the TR. Did you think about that?

    But the lore is almost meaningless in this game anyway.

    TR is nothing like Russia, in fact I'd say TR and the NC are both America having a civil war. Oh wait, it really is pretty much just that.

    I generally hate it when people compare irl nations to any of the factions, especially on the basis of stupid arguments like "They have the same color." or stuff like that.

    Because we're red and therefore known as the Glorious Red Army! We throw any amount of men and resources to capture bases no matter the cost. Which sounds a lot like WWII Russia, and even though they were communist we all know Stalin ran that **** like a dictator.

    So I have no problem being compared to Russia... Also we have *****in' commissar hats

    Don't you mean USSR? Because modern Russia is nothing like TR.

    Roman republic: fresh, young, fast developing, adapting, everchanging force.
    TR: old, traditional, falling republic turned into a regime.

    If anything TR is what is left of the empire.

    This glorious message for the people was inspired by comrade:

    This it is pretty much all there is to it.

    TLDR rundown
    TR: Early USSR
    NC: Modern-day corporate America
    VS: Modern-day Pseudo-tech wannabes

    This isn't a sign that we're the USSR, it's a sign that we're the Imperium of Mankind!
