Part 16: Soviet Mission 02 "The Thin Red Line"

Soviet Mission 02
Soviet Mission 02

Prepare your forces for an attack on Germany in the coming days. If the allies choose to Pearl Harbor sneak attack us beforehand, well... defend yourself at any cost!

It would appear that we're in the trifecta of borders between Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Germany.

Location: Zittau, Germany
Objective: Defend yourself against any Allied aggression.

Briefing: Tomorrow, the attack on Germany begins, but today, we must protect our facility from Allied attacks. Keep the Command Center intact at all costs, and destroy any Allied fortification you might find.

Author's note: Another easy level that eases you in to using Grenadiers and attack dogs.

Occupation: Commander within the Soviet Forces [Chief of Field Operations]
Voiced/Played by: Craig Cavanah

ARMOR: Light
PURPOSE: Trains attack dogs
The Kennel trains Attack Dogs.

Author's Note:

WEAPON: Sharp teeth
Attack Dogs are the only unit that can detect Spies that are trying to infiltrate the base. Although unarmored and easy to kill, Dogs make the perfect in-base guard unit against sneak attacks by Engineers, Spies, and Thieves. They also make fine pets.

Author's Note: It's comforting that Attack Dogs also make great companions

ARMOR: Heavy
PURPOSE: Fire-based defense
The Flame Tower targets and destroys approaching enemy ground units by shooting balls of fire. It is best used against large groups of infantry; it is effective against armored units as well. Since there are volatile fuels used in the Flame Tower, it damages nearby units and structures if destroyed.

Author's Note: Not quite so effective against armor, they are only better than Tesla Coils in a few circumstances. Oh, and they take way less power.
