Part 65: Soviets - Deus Ex Machine

Volkov's been captured, and the secrets of his construction must NOT be relinquished to the Allies. Do what you can to rescue Volkov, or ensure the classified technologies do not fall into Allied hands.

[This space left intentionally blank.]

Location: Unknown, Unknown
Objective: Rescue, or kill Volkov before the Allies learn of the technologies involved in his creation.

Briefing: The Allies have captured Volkov in an attempt to learn the secrets of his construction. This is not allowed. Destroy the four Allied radar sites in the area, allowing us to reactivate our tracking devices and locate Volkov. Once located, send a scientist into the structure to reactivate him. Guide him to our chinook, where he will be airlifted out of the area. Once safe, destroy all Allied forces in the area. Hurry. If the Allies discover Volkov's control codes, he will have to be destroyed as well.

Author's note: A challenging mission, and I love how there are three separate ways to play it out, all in ways that feel organic. However this mission plays out, it is a direct consequence of the player, and that's always a good thing.

Name: Gen. Topolov
Aliases: Unknown
Affiliation: Soviet
Occupation: General in the Soviet Forces
Voiced/Played by: Alan Charof

General Topolov wastes no time in detailing the Allied plans and what he expects of you. Also hates the Allied horonosfiere. Probably drunk on a regular basis, while on duty. Drinks heavily to dull the pain of being a war criminal.
