Part 24: Soviet Mission 10 "Overseer"

Soviets Mission 10
Soviets Mission 10

After preventing the Allies from gaining access to the Iron Curtain project, Kukov gives us the task of defending a convoy moving through enemy controlled territory.

I'd put this as being near Lyon rather than closer to Geneva, mainly because they appear to still be neutral in this conflict.

Location: Area of Lyon, France
Objective: Defend the convoy as it moves to its destination.

Briefing: You must defend a Soviet convoy that is moving through Allied occupied territory. Using the new MiG jet and a complement of Yaks, get the convoy through the area intact. Be careful -- your resources for this mission are very limited. If at least one truck makes it through to the other side, the mission will be a success.

Author's note: A very nice map for the introduction of the MiG, with a mix of new and old to see just how well, or poorly, they each perform in comparison with eachother. Would be nice to know how they got Destroyers there, however...

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. Allows the player the use of the new MiG attack aircraft.

RANGE: Medium
ARMOR: Light
WEAPON: Heat-seeking missiles
This fast-attack craft carries a limited number of powerful and accurate missiles. Used in hitand-run tactics, the MIG can remove armored craft before they can become a threat.

Author's Note: Fragile but fast and dangerous, a group of well-controlled MiGs can take out anything on the map in the blink of an eye. They trade such firepower for a high cost and small health pool, so use them wisely!
