Part 26: Allied X01 - Operation: Time Lapse

Yuri's Revenge

Allied X01: Operation: Time Lapse
Operation: Time Lapse

We're at DEFCON 2! Report the the briefing room immediately!

Pretty good representation for a map, for Red Alert 2.

Location: San Francisco, California, USA
Objective: Destroy the Psychic Dominator on Alcatraz!

Briefing: It's only a matter of time before Yuri brings the Psychic Dominator on Alcatraz back online. Our only chance is to use Professor Einstein's Time Machine to send us back in time and stop Yuri before he can complete his worldwide network of Psychic Dominators.

Author's note: A nice intro mission with a fake time limit and enough hidden failsafes to prevent an untimely loss.

Various Other Actors

It's hard to find who is who when a lot of the names are mixed in together and I'm unsure if any will return in future videos, so here is a list of names of actors that are or may be in this video.

Robert Garretson,
Spike Measer,
Al Conahan,
Eugene Harris,
Matt Mooney,
Peter Conklin,
Rosie Heeter
Dave Crockett,
Robert Eustice.
Bruce Mastracchio,
Sylvester Smith
Michael Pfleegor

Guardian G.I.
RANGE: Short-Medium
WEAPON: M60 and Missile Launcher
COST: 400

Like a normal GI, the Guardian GI fires a powerful machine gun from a standing position. When deployed, the Guardian GI can not be crushed and switches to a powerful anti-tank weapon that is effective against vehicles and aircraft. Guardian GIs cannot be used to garrison structures.

Author's Note: Filling in the anti-tank needs for the standard Allied arsenal. Their major downside is not being able to garrison buildings, which is fair, and leaves them open for mind control.


Faster than Par Time: "Your quick thinking caught both the Soviets and Yuri off guard. The Soviet invasion of San Francisco has been thwarted, and Yuri's plans have been thrown into disarray. Well done, Commander."

Slower than Par Time: "Though we have thwarted both the plans of the Soviets and Yuri, the population of San Francisco suffered terrible losses."
