Part 54: Allies - Monster Tank Madness

Monster Tank Madness
Monster Tank Madness

The Soviets are developing a new "Monster" tank, capable of surviving almost any attack, and powerful enough to level entire bases. Thankfully for us, the scientist heading the program wishes to defect. Do what you can and extract that scientist!

[This space left intentionally blank.]

Location: Unknown, Unknown
Objective: Rescue Dr. Demitri.

Briefing: Dr. Demitri, creator of a new Soviet Super Tank, wants to defect. We planned to extract him while the Soviets were testing their new weapon, but something has gone wrong. The Super Tanks are out of control, and Demitri is missing -- likely hiding in the village to the far south. Find our outpost and start repairs on it, then find and evacuate Demitri. As for the tanks, we can reprogram them. Send a spy into the Soviet radar dome in the NE, turning the tanks on their creators.

Author's note: A straightforward mission, I can't say I'm particularly fond of it. I think there are two reasons for that: firstly, we have no vision of the entire map or, at the very least, shared vision of the Super Tanks and their surroundings. Secondly, I can't see how the player would have any fun doing this mission without reprogramming the tanks.
