by Jobbo_Fett

Part 31: Alliex X06 - Operation: Trick or Treaty

Allied X06: Operation: Trick or Treaty
Operation: Trick or Treaty

With desperate times come desperate measures. We must seek out an alliance with... the Reds. Without their manpower and support, we stand little chance of defeating Yuri. That said, Premier Romanov and President Dugan will be travelling to London to ratify the treaty that will cease hostilities and focus all efforts against Yuri and his troops.

Into the heart of London we go!

Location: London, Britain
Objective: Defend Parliament House at all costs!

Briefing: Having failed to clone the world leaders, Yuri plans to capture the real ones. Defend them at the Houses of Parliament in London, England...then deal with Yuri.

Author's note: An interesting map, lacking in treats. It has a similar cashflow issue from previous titles, but decidedly more fun than Clones Down Under.

Top military official for the United States of America's armed forces. Reports directly to the president. Enjoys antagonizing Tanya. Was temporarily subverted by the Soviet Union due to mind control weapons. Impressed by the Commander's ability to befriend Tanya.

Faster than Par Time: "Yuri never had a chance. The world leaders are safe and Yuri has been driven from London. Excellent work, General."

Slower than Par Time: "The day is won...but at what cost? The world leaders feared for their lives during the battle and fled at first chance. The treaty holds...for now."
