Notes
  • Strong vs infantry.
  • Weak vs vehicle, tank.

- Rebel
Gen1 Rebel Icons

Rebels are the basic soldiers of the GLA in Generals 1.

Background

Nothing will stop us!
- Rebel on the move

Lacking the more advanced weapons of their counterparts, Rebels are inexpensive and easy for GLA generals to train. Armed with AK-47 assault rifles, these dedicated men make up for their lack of training with raw courage.

Variants

Dr. Thrax

Our toxins will destroy the enemy!
- Toxin Rebel
  • Rebels have been replaced by Toxin Rebels which can clear garrisoned buildings and deal more damage to infantry and vehicles, but do little damage against buildings.
  • Toxin Rebels cost 200 and can be upgraded with Anthrax Gamma.
  • Cannot place Booby Traps.

Special: In mission USA 5 Zero Hour, Dr Thrax's Toxin Rebels are modified:

  • The cost has been reduced to 150
  • Added ability to place Booby Traps (a glitch, as Toxin Rebels cannot place Booby Traps. This is due to the code giving them the standard Rebel set of command buttons.)

Completely immune to toxins

Lacks special voice clips (unfinished code)

Display Name says "Rebel" instead of "Toxin Rebel" (unfinished code)

General Rodall 'Demo' Juhziz

Where should we put it?
- Rebels want to put Booby Trap
  • General Juhziz's Rebels are already trained for planting booby traps

Prince Kassad

Yes! I go!
- Rebel
  • Prince Kassad's Stealth Rebels are already given training to hide themselves, eschewing the Camouflage upgrade

Special: In mission GLA 2 Zero Hour, Prince Kassad's Stealth Rebels' cost had been reduced to 150

Game unit

Relatively inexpensive to train, Rebels can be easily trained early game. Although outmatched by both the Ranger and the Red Guard, the Rebel is expendable and works well when attracting enemy fire. His firepower can also be improved by purchasing the AP bullets upgrade at the Black Market, making the Rebel more useful on the battlefield. However, given the GLA's production system, Rebels are trained at a slower rate than even the Red Guard, making GLA weak in early skirmishes for control of the oil derricks.

Not only are Rebels rather difficult to train in numbers, they are also arguably the weakest of the 3 basic infantry. Rangers can easily beat a rebel given their superior durability, while the Chinese have an edge against the Rebels in the fact that their weapon is a 1-shot burst weapon while the Rebels deal damage 3 times per shot, allowing a lone Red Guard to beat a Rebel one-on-one. In addition, Rebels have no way to increase their battle prowess at the early game; The Rebels' only way to increase their direct battle power is the AP bullets, a late-game upgrade, compared to the Rangers; launched flash-bang grenades and the Red Guards' Horde bonus. Like all infantry units, Rebels are easy targets for anti-infantry units and vehicles, such as Dragon Tanks, Pathfinder snipers or rogue Quad Cannons. Also, napalm missiles carried by Chinese MiGs pose a serious threat to rebels as fire is very effective against infantry.

Because of the GLA's lack of innate power (rendering them in effective low-power status), having a source of power doubles the training speed of GLA units, including the Rebels to put them in par with the Rangers. However, by the time GLA acquires the means to make a power plant, trained Rebels will generally have little usage.

However, Juhziz's Rebels become deadly even at later stages of the game once Demolition is upgraded. This is particularly true of those spawned by Rebel Ambushes, as they can be quickly deployed to destroy a superweapon, power plants, secondary sources of income, and more.

Assessment

Pros

  • Cheap to train
  • Powerful in numbers
  • Camouflage upgrade grants stealth
  • Can be spawned for free via Rebel Ambush support power
  • AP Bullets upgrade improves attack
  • Booby Trap ability can kill infantry near a neutral building or unit

Cons

  • Weakest basic infantry
  • Vulnerable to most weapons, especially anti-infantry
  • Vulnerable to aircraft
  • Camouflage can be lost with stealth detection
  • Booby Trap can be cleared by builder units
  • Like other basic infantry, vulnerable while capturing

Trivia

  • Sound files included within Generals' audio archives reveal that Rebels were originally meant to use Tranquilizer darts that were upgradable as their alternative weapon. Like flash-bang grenades for Rangers and stun bullets for the Red Guard, they would have incapacitated hostile infantry and have made them capturable as POWs. This weapon is not present in the final version, however, as the POW logic system was entirely removed, making it an obsolete upgrade compared to booby traps and therefore necessitating its removal.
They will not know who did it!
- Unused Demo Rebel's quote
  • General Juhziz would get an exclusive variant of the Rebel known as the Demo Rebel, which can plant demolition charges (most likely similar to that of the Tank Hunters). However, they were cut from the final release, although their voiceset remains in the game files. Mods like Shockwave restores the Demo Rebel.
  • Rebels seem very high strung and willing to fight; even if they were on a suicide mission, they show a certain fanaticism (but not as fanatic as Terrorists)
  • The Rebel seems to be holding an AKM assault rifle in his cameo, evident by slant muzzle compensator device and non-hooded front sights. 
  • In the mod Rise of the Reds, Rebels can throw molotov cocktails to clear garrisoned structures.
