The Socialist Confederation of Latin America (commonly known as the Latin Confederation or just Confederation) is one of three subfactions of the Soviet Union.

Official description

The Latin Confederation is the South-American branch of the Soviet regime. The Confederation cannot reliably depend on material and military support from their Soviet allies as much as their peers, so guerrilla warfare and quick strikes are commonplace tactics.

Since the Confederation’s armory is primarily made up of outdated Soviet weaponry, the concept of using smoke to decrease enemies' effectiveness in battle in the field as well as heavy use of napalm has been incorporated in Confederation tactics. The Latinos’ excellent infantry support and highly skilled sharpshooter, Morales greatly complement this strategy. Fast as a panther and just as deadly, the Latin Confederation is a deceptively powerful force on the battlefield.[1]

History

Communist states started popping up in South America not long after the Second Great War to overthrow puppet governments installed in the continent by the United States, and their number increased alarmingly just before the Third Great War. Nonetheless, the communist states soon realized they could not defeat the American oppression on their own and thus united themselves in the Socialist Confederation of Latin America for better economic and military support. Even this was not sufficient however, and as a result the Confederation fostered close relations with Russia and joined the newly re-enstablished Soviet Union together with Russia and China.

Gameplay

The Latin Confederation excels in harassment and sabotage.

The Latin Confederation focuses on a mixture of guerrilla warfare, sabotages and hit-and-run tactics, with a stronger emphasis on using flame weaponry and smoke bombs. Most of its units excel in harassment, sabotaging and distracting the enemy.

Jaguar Assault Tanks are not as powerful as their other Soviet counterparts, but they use a mixture of speed and the element of surprise to harass the enemy. The Latin Confederation's Bomb Buggy is faster than the Demolition Truck, and it can be used to make a deadly suicidal surprise on the enemy base. Fury Drones can ambush and cripple unlucky units who didn't detect them in time. Mortar Quads along with its support power Motor Ambush can cause a ruckus on the enemy as well. Smoke weapons like Smoke Turret and Smoke Bombs support can weaken the enemy's firepower while napalm weaponry such as Arsonists and Vultures can create firestorms, damaging units and structures nearby. The Confederation's hero, Morales, is a highly skilled sharpshooter very capable of long-range harassment, sniping enemy units and calling airstrikes on structures from afar.

However, the Latin Confederation has its own weaknesses as well. Most of its vehicles are not as durable as compared to the other Soviet factions. Many of its surprise attacks and sabotages can be diminished with better scouting, awareness and detection capabilities like Mind Readers and Sensor Towers.
