You have the distinction of being in the vanguard of the
glorious Soviet invasion. Your task is a simple but
important one: destroy the military base. If you can crush
this building, you can defeat a good portion of the American
military before it has time to be mobilized, and can
hopefully help capture many high-ranking Allied military
officials and important documents. You'll be reinforced
frequently to help you in this objective, which shouldn't
prove to be too difficult, even for a first-time commander.
At the start of the mission, Paratroopers drop in, giving
you a nice force of Conscripts to work with. While they move
into position, an MCV deploys, starting a base for you. Sit
tight for just a minute and build the necessary structures
for your base. You need a Tesla Reactor and Barracks at the
very least, and a Refinery can't hurt.
When your base
is ready, build a couple Engineers and start your Conscripts
moving north up the road. Not far from your base, you
encounter a small group of GIs already deployed and waiting
for you. Send 10 Conscripts into the nearby building and
capture it. From this location, your troops make very short
work of the Americans.
Continue moving up to find the small Allied base. There
aren't any buildings around it to occupy, so simply send in
your Conscripts and take out the GIs. Start work on the
Patriot Missiles next, to protect your aircraft flying in
reinforcements. Take out everything except the Barracks,
which you can capture with an Engineer. This gives you a
nice advanced position for deploying additional troops.
When you're ready, send an Engineer into the repair hut
of the bridge to fix it. Send the troops across and into the
next Allied area. Take the two buildings there with your
Conscripts. They're within perfect firing range of the
Allied GIs and Pillboxes guarding the way into the next
Allied base. Take these out, then get your men out of the
buildings. With the reinforcements you receive here, move
into the Allied base proper.
As soon as you do, more
reinforcements appear for you. This group contains a few
Engineers, which you can use to capture a good portion of
this Allied base. For starters, grab the airport. This
allows you to create additional groups of Paratroopers for
the rest of the mission. You can also get another Allied
Barracks and a Construction Yard, both of which are worth
taking. Use this Barracks to create additional troops,
particularly a few Engineers.
Destroy everything, except what you capture with
Engineers. Look west in this base to find another broken
bridge. Have an Engineer repair it, then send over a unit or
two to investigate this small area. There aren't any Allies
here. As you approach the western side of this small island,
you're reinforced with a squad of four Rhino Heavy Tanks.
Bring these over to join your Conscripts, then head north to
find the base.
Naturally, the area is closely guarded by the Allies. Use
the tanks to break through the walls and Pillboxes, then
send in your Conscripts to kill off the GIs. You get
additional reinforcements here, so create your own
Paratroopers at this point. Drop them around the base and
have them take out GIs first and Patriot Missiles second.
Move in the tanks, and have additional Engineers move up and
capture the last two Barracks here.
You get tons of reinforcements, including eight more
tanks. Move everyone up and next to the base itself and
destroy everything around it. Then, start blowing up the
base. There are four individual sections of this building
that must be destroyed. When each section goes up, a few
remaining GIs attack. They shouldn't be much of a problem
for you and, with the power of a dozen tanks, it won't take
long to eliminate the entire base.
