'Not OTA', or NOTA, is a re-imagining of the TA universe with an emphasis on realism, scale, and strategy. Units have been altered, scaled, added, and replaced to create a consistent world: infantry kbots are smaller than tanks, aircraft use fuel and have a variety of distinct roles such as ground attack, air superiority, interception, and strategic bombing, and ships are not small boats, but true, full-scale ships, with subs for raiding the enemy's economy, destroyers for hunting subs, and capital ships for engaging enemy fleets. The result is a cohesive, believable world that very much resembles the one seen in the original TA intro video.
