Part 26: Soviet Mission 12 "Capture the control centers [Part 1]"

Soviets Mission 12
Soviets Mission 12

Stalin wants the Chronosphere and, due in part to Gradenko's failures, that objective has been delayed until now. Thankfully, there have been signs to indicate that a Chronosphere is in operation near Ceti(?), and we must capture it.

I dunno I'd guess somewhere near Zug, but the map is so small that it could be anywhere in the middle of Switzerland.

Location: Ceti(?), Switzerland
Objective: Capture the Chronosphere at all costs!

Briefing: We have learned the location of the Chronosphere weapon, and we want to capture it. The Allies have boobytrapped the Chronosphere to explode if approached. Capturing the tech centers BEFORE taking the Chronosphere may allow you to defuse any traps. Use extreme caution.

Author's note: A lovely introduction and a challenging map, it's kind of a shame that it offers the same basic premise as the last level, yet does it in a less frustrating fashion.
