Part 23: Soviet Mission 09 "Liability Elimination"

Soviets Mission 09
Soviets Mission 09

After watching Stalin celebrate with Gradenko, and deliver an impassioned plea to him to sign the death warrants of those who would see him dead, we learn that, behind the scenes, Kukov and Nadia talk about the missing Iron Curtain truck that was lost by Gradenko. Oh, and death.

It looks like it would be near Verdun, maybe a little further into France.

Location: Verdun(?), France
Objective: Destroy the truck carrying the Iron Curtain technology.

Briefing: The Allied forces have intercepted and destroyed a convoy that carried parts for our secret weapon. One truck remains, but they have captured that last truck and its cargo. This is not acceptable! You are to destroy that truck before the Allies leave the area with it.

Author's note: A fun mission regardless of if you play it the right way or the cheesy way.

Name: Capt. Georgi Kukov
Aliases: Unknown
Affiliation: Soviet
Occupation: Commander within the Soviet Forces [Chief of Field Operations]
Voiced/Played by: Craig Cavanah

A seemingly no-nonsense leader within the Soviet Forces. A god damn pervert who likes to watch his boss fuck. Conspiring with Nadia to eliminate Gradenko.

Name: Gradenko
Aliases: Unknown
Affiliation: Soviet
Occupation: Commander(?)
Voiced/Played by: Alan Terry

Manages the production and management of Stalin's lethal gas weapons. The only good one. Was the first to report the Allied use of the Chronosphere to Stalin. Demonstrates his loyalty to Stalin by signing death warrants against "traitors of the Soviet Union".

Name: Unknown
Aliases: Unknown
Affiliation: Soviet(?)
Occupation: Unknown
Voiced/Played by: Unknown

Advisor to Joseph Stalin, apparently. Everyone appears uncomfortable when he is in the room.

ARMOR: Heavy
PURPOSE: Anti-aircraft defense
SAM Site automatically launches longranging missiles at enemy aircraft. Slower moving or hovering aircraft will fare the worst against this defensive structure.

Author's Note: Not quite as great as the AA gun from the Allied side, it does a decent job. They're changed from Tiberian Dawn by not going underground, drastically increasing their response time, and consequently their lethality.
