Soviets Mission 13
Soviets Mission 13

The Soviets have captured Einstein (off-screen, of course) and is being used as bait for the Allies to reveal the "real" Chronosphere after the previous one was detonated before Soviet engineers could inspect it.

Most likely the area of Coimbra, Portugal.

Location: Coimbra, Portugal
Objective: Destroy the Allied Radar Domes in the area and then capture the Chronosphere.

Briefing: We have another chance to capture the Chronosphere. Take out the Radar Domes to cut the link between them and the Chronosphere. The capture it!

Author's note: It would have been nice to know how we managed to capture Einstein. Was he in the Tech Centers of the last mission? No matter, this map is surprisingly frustrating because it is straight up misleading.
