Total Annihilation: The Core Contingency is an add-on to the RTS game Total Annihilation. It adds new units, maps, campaigns and a mission/map editor.

Amongst the new units are seaplanes, hovercraft, and the Krogoth K-Bot, a humongous mech that is 4 times the size of the next biggest land unit and can single-handedly lay waste to an entire enemy base.

The expansion was supposedly renamed "Really Big Expansion" on April 1, 1999, due to "a legal snafu" with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It was part of an April Fool's Day joke by the developer, though - the main game was renamed "Really Cool Wargame".
