Part 11: Allied Mission 11 "Secure the river for the navy"

Allied Mission 11
Allied Mission 11

After averting a nuclear crisis, the Allies discover that there are no other such devices ready to be flung across the globe.

I don't know how it couldn't be St. Petersburg, looking at the map.

Location: St. Petersburg, Soviet Union
Objective: Clear the way for allied shipping by destroying all Soviet units and structures in the area.

Briefing: Our assault on the USSR is underway, although our efforts are being hindered by large pockets of soviet armor. To counter this, we need to move warships up the Volga river, but there is a bottleneck near Volograd which you must clear so our naval vessels can move in. Good Luck!

Author's note: I think the area in the briefing is supposed to be VOLGOGRAD, whoopsie! Then again, according to the game the Volga river runs into Leningrad St.Petersburg. Speaking about the mission itself, its not bad, and I love that the player is actually given two MCVs from the get-go, but the win condition prolongs what could already be a very long scenario for some.

Name: General Von Esling
Aliases: None
Affiliation: Allies
Occupation: Commander of the Allied forces in Europe
Voiced/Played by: Arthur Roberts

A seemingly no-nonsense leader who is willing to try unorthodox means if it means completing his goals. Von Esling has a renewed belief that Soviet aggression has only made the Allies that much stronger. General Von Esling has tasked the Commander with numerous high profile and important missions, including the rescue of Major Kosygin.
