GDI Mission 06
Geographic Area: 30,449 Square Miles
Gross Domestic Product: $120 Billion
Point of Conflict: Ostrava
Military Power: National Guard
Apparently, Nod is jamming communications and Carter needs our help. Or maybe the cut funding is messing with our comms?
Location: Ostrava, Czech Republic
Objective: Use the Commando to infiltrate the Nod base and destroy the... damnit.
Briefing: Use a GDI Commando to infiltrate the Nod base. **** ** destroy the ********** so that the base is incapacitated. Get in, hit it, and get the **** out.
Author's note: Another commando mission!
Name: Commander Carter
Occupation: Commander within the Global Defense Initiative
Voiced/Played by: Bill Collins
Author's note: We've had quite a bit of back and forth with Carter, and sometimes I wonder if he's supposed to be the main character with the GDI. Certainly more personable than Sheppard.
TRANSPORT CHINOOK HELICOPTER
SECONDS TO PRODUCE: 100
Provides field transportation for all infantry, rapidly deploying new troops into, or out of battle. This unit is basically an aerial version of the APC without the weapon.
Author's note: Great if your opponent is missing air defense weapons in critical areas, and even better if you can combine it with attacks to distract. Its usually a one-way trip for this unit, when moving into an enemy base.
SECONDS TO PRODUCE: 67
WEAPON: SNIPER RIFLE AND C-4 EXPLOSIVE PACKS
The Commando is part of the GDI Elite Forces Unit. This unit uses a Raptor 50cal. assault rifle with suppressor that is able to take out infantry units from extreme range. In addition, the Commando carries C-4 explosives.
When placed in enemy structures, these explosives will level the target structure in seconds.
Author's note: The lore text here is why I think that Nod has one Commando, whereas GDI has an entire team of them. GDI also started out as a SpecOps group. Maybe one of them defected to Nod? Its all headcanon, loosely based on text from the manual, which could just be an error/typo anyways, but I like the interpretation.
