Part 3: GDI 03: Capture the Train Station

GDI 03: Capture The Train Station
Capture The Train Station

Although Vega was not found in Arizona, it did place Com. McNeil and his team nearest to help a science team examining a crashed unidentified flying object. While attacking and securing the area where the UFO crashed is top priority, the Kodiak's flight path does cross a NOD staging area being used to send reinforcements to the UFO Crash Site. Attacking and destroying the transportation hub first will increase the chances of a successful mission as McNeil progresses towards the UFO.

The Train Station and hub is located somewhere just south of El Paso

Location: Near El Paso, Chihuahua, Mexico
Objective: Destroy all NOD structures in the area, and capture the train station

Briefing: NOD has positioned a supply base in the area near a civilian train station. We can use the train and supplies to infiltrate the larger NOD base to the East. Avoiding patrols where possible and destroy all the NOD structures in the area. Once the area is secure, capture the train station for our use. DO NOT destroy the station or the train, as they are vital to our plans. Engineers and other reinforcements are available, but not unlimited - do not waste them.

Author's note: The first mission where we don't have a base, and it offers two main methods on beating it. Personally, I love how this mission plays out and how great the scripting/trigger work is.
