In the end, all fall before me!
- Leang

General "Tigress" Leiong Leang[1] is a Chinese Class AAAA Dragon General stationed close to Tibet.


As a member of the PLA's Elite Forces, Leang is a flexible commander, leading a mixed military force that brings together the best infantry, vehicles, defensive structures and special forces operatives from the entire world. Her arsenal includes American troops, Chinese tanks, GLA guerillas and superweapons from all factions. She is among one of the few PLA generals that is most trusted by the United States, allowing her access to certain American weapons and technology. Rumor has it however that she is not above using stolen GLA weaponry in her arsenal.

General Leang is stationed at Base Dragon, Lanzhou, China, near the border with Tibet.


General Leang has a unique, custom made army list. Superweapons double as tech centers (the equivalent of Palace, strategy center and propaganda center) for the purposes of training advanced units.

Generalness's Pro Effectivenesses:

  • She has units from every factions, her army is flexible and brings all together the best units from all every factions
  • She uses much advanced jet fighters from US factions and china combined
  • Her base defense are multiple types, she has all base defense buildings from every factions this makes her base semi-impenetrable
  • She has general promotions available both to US and china including the command powers from every factions
  • The only general that can build all the superpower weapons all each 3 together

  • She has custom made unit lists
  • The most powerful General in the PLA and to all every factions
  • Weaknesses and Disadvantages are almost non-existent to her

Generalness's Cons (Weaknesses and Disadvantages)

  • Her mass destruction superweapons timers are longer than usual (15 minutes, to each one); In Easy mode, 1 hour.
  • There are 3 structures in the map that, if destroyed or captured, will reset the timers of all her superweapons. The structures are Toxin Bunker, Nuclear Bunker and the Communications Building.
  • She is not a playable general in the game and only seen in the challenge bosses in the last stage (7th stage) unless a mod is installed in the game this restores her as usuable faction general to play.

General's challenge

Suicide is not a tactic, General.
- Leang talking in better position

Leang's main base seems to be invulnerable, but possible to be exploited. Her base consumes massive amounts of power (because of the amount of defenses that cost power, as well as the 2 superweapons, the Particle Cannon and the Nuclear Missile, that also cost power), supplied by poorly defended power plants to the right of the deep ravine. The "only" entrance to her base, a large bridge, is extremely frightening, but another entrance to her base also exists under the bridge, leading to a supply dock behind the purely-guarded main entrance.

There are strategies in defeating Leang, such as fighting fire with fire, building superweapons of her own and targeting large groups of power plants, or huge concentrations of units. Her attacks should be feared, as she will use a Sneak Attack near the player's starting supply dock, allowing her to destroy some structures and giving the player bad luck. The player should defeat Leang as fast as possible, since she will use Carpet Bombings and Artillery Barrages against the player if the fight takes too long, while being able to send wave after wave of units that will overwhelm the player's defenses. Although arrogant and convinced of her enormous strength and advantages, General Leang is not above humility upon defeat. Unlike most Generals in Challenge Mode (and just like the AI players in Skirmish Mode), she will surrender to the player after destroying all her logistical and production buildings (like the Barracks, War Factory, Airfield, etc...), so these count as high-priority targets for the player to destroy, along with the Command Center (which allows Leang to send Sneak Attacks, and normal fully-leveled Chinese special powers, and rebuild her base) and her superweapons (which counts as tech-centers, allowing the production of powerful units, like Avengers, Overlords, and all of the heroes on every faction.)

Her superweapons, although intimidating, suffer strategic fatal flaw: they rely on special structures located outside her main base perimeter, and destroying or taking over one of them will reset the timer for all her superweapons. If the player is using a GLA General, he/she could use the Sneak Attack and the Rebel Ambush power, or even the Saboteur, in order to disable Leang's power grid, or reset the timer of her General's Powers and super weapons.

The countdown timer of superweapons differ on each difficulty: it is 12 minutes on Hard, 30 minutes on Medium, and 1 hour on Easy.

Suggested Tactics

  • Advancing up and securing the northern ridge is invaluable in the early game, for the security of your base, as well as the oil rig (a bit to the east). Bring Rocket troops to the townsquare up there and garrison them. Be careful, there's a couple of Dragon Tanks initially posted there. Getting hold of this position stops harassment coming from the north, which would shoot you from up the ridge. Be advised: between this and the next stage, Leang may summon a Sneak Tunnel on your base.
  • Directly east of the starting position, is a supply depot, undefended - be mindful, however, of garrisoned bunkers on the left side adjacent to the road leading there. This corner of the map is an important setting stage to the advance northwards. It's also a straight path to the first of the 3 superweapon "facilities", which is poorly guarded by a group of Rangers.
  • After destroying the first facility, retreat a bit south, near the Repair Station and fortify this position until the next phase. Here you can hold against assailants from the west and the north. Leang throws Paladin tanks and Chinese Gatling and Flamer tanks at you; be prepared to counter this setup.
  • The next step will be an assault on the second facility (a tall building), to the north, guarded by a pack of Overlords. Before the attack, depending on your level of security, invest in financial infrastructure, to enable the construction of superweapons of your own.
  • The Overlords up the hill will be a tough nut to crack, but this position offers good rewards in the form of an abundance of neutral buildings to take, and a launching position to the next step.
  • By conquering this position, it's possible that you'll have the momentum to go west and destroy the last Superweapon facility. Head there, but hold the order to destroy it: wait for the timers to be close to launch so you'll get more time for preparation.
  • The wide bridge is the last land path between you and Leang. The usual attack partie, which now may be supported by a Helix chopper, will come through here. There may be Pathfinder snipers on the valleys.
  • By this point, you'll have ample building space for your structures and possibly a robust ammount of moneymaking buildings. Depending on the architecture of your sprawling territory, Leang's superweapons, if used, will not hurt your preparations.
  • Having superweapons of your own will make the invasion of Leang's territory a less strenuous affair; precision air strikes will be frustrated because of the number of Gatling guns sprinkled around her buildings. Her base is behind a line of Patriot plataforms overlooking the bridge access, which make good targets for a SCUD Storm or a Nuclear Warhead. Like said above, you may also target her power grid.
  • After some softening up, snowball past the bridge and into the heart of her base, to the north, then kill the rest to the east.

Ending Background

"Improve your skills and challenge me again." (Victory)

"This has been an interesting contest. Perhaps you will challenge me again." (Defeat)


  • After defeating General Ta Hun Kwai, he states that the "Tigress" (Leang) will crush the general like an insect.
  • She is playable in several Zero Hour mods, such as Shockwave, A Global Crisis (as a United Nations General), Reborn: The Last Stand (as the Chinese Commander in Chief) and Pro:Gen (similar to the previous mod).
  • It is possible to select her in Skirmish mode without mods by doing the following in the Skirmish.ini file after quitting the game: go to the “SlotList” line and change the 5th value after S=H{your name} to 14, which is her faction ID. Then start the game again and go to Skirmish mode. It will look like Random is selected, but in the match loading screen, the faction name becomes Boss General. Unfortunately during play, her command center and dozer do not appear, and the player is automatically defeated as a result. The reason for that is due to the Boss General being disabled and can only be enabled by editing ChallengeMode.ini in the INIZH.big file (which can only be opened with FinalBig Editor).
  • Apart from the King Raptor, all of her units are seem to be drawn from the vanilla factions and not from any specific generals for unknown reasons.
  • It is possible to defeat her with two Overlord tanks, one with a gattling cannon and the other with propaganda tower.
  • Even in lastest version of the game, Leang's units seem to be missing fixes and changes from 1.3 update. Her Avengers are still effected by Composite Armor, USA vehicles lack upgrade icon for Hellfire Drone, Sentry Drone isn't effected by Drone Armor etc.
