This mod reskins the T80 to look like the T72. This is to work with the unit_graphics.xml and unitrules.xml to give the T80 look exclusively to the Russians, and give the T72 to all others that should use Soviet tanks (China, Mongol, Egypt, Nubian, Bantu). The unit_graphics.xml redefines the skin, and you have to make a "mods" directory in your RoN game directory and put your the new skin there. The unitrules.xml redefines which country gets which Tank, (before China and Mongols shared tanks with Russia to get a green T80, while the African civs got a desert camo version). This mod changes it so that the Russian get the green T80 and no one else, and everyone gets the T72. There is a desert version of the T72 that I made, which you can use instead, but you need to go into the unit_graphics.xml file to change the T72green_ODAv2.tga to T72desert_ODAv2.tga.
To install the xml files:
The file unit_graphics-T72.xml should be renamed unit_graphics.xml,
and unitrules.T80unique.xml should be renamed unitrules.xml. Make a backup of the
orginals in the data directory, then replace with the renamed while mentioned above. Of course copy the new skins into the mods directory which you should also
create in your RON game folder (the should be on the same level as your art and data directories etc).
