Throwback Thursday for 21st July

For Throwback Thursday this week we continue to look back at the iconic units, and what is more iconic than Nod's Flame Tank from Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars in 2007. Brute force, combined with deadly flame turrets. Infantry never stand a chance against the intense heat. Especially effective for clearing out garrisoned buildings. The Flame Tank has been a main stay of the Brotherhood's arsenal for years.

This weeks Throwback Thursday comes from C&C Renegade in 2002, but its really something that Westwood released for another game. The Renegade skins for The Sims. There were two sets, one for GDI and one for Nod. Each set included all of the main characters. So you could basically have Havoc walking around in your Sims game. When we used to have a large archive of downloads here at CNCNZ.com, these Renegade skins for The Sim were available. We don't have them any more, but you can still get them from this link. Thanks to Plokite_Wolf  sending in the idea for this week's Throwback Thursday feature.
