Part 5: GDI 05: Defend the Crash Site

GDI 05: Defend the Crash Site
Defend the Crash Site

After preventing NOD forces from extracting valuable information from the crashed UFO, GDI forces have set up a temporary defense and what forces are on guard are waiting for more reinforcements to completely eliminate NOD from the area... and to help decypher whatever can be learned from this new source of technology.

The crash site appears to be just south-west of Lubbock, Texas

Location: South-west of Lubbock, Texas, USA
Objective: Defend the Crash Site until reinforcements arrive

Briefing: Whatever is contained in this craft, it is apparent that Nod doesn't want GDI to have it. Protect the crashed UFO until GDI reinforcements can arrive to fortify the area.

Author's note: A rather simple mission, but interesting to see if you can break out and explore the map a little bit. It isn't necessary, but there's a continuing thread of stuff the map makers added to parts you'd never ever explore.
