GDI 12: Rescue the Prisoners
Rescue the Prisoners

After the recapture of vital GDI technology, an assault against the Brotherhood's base of operations in Germany was being devised by Gen. Solomon, with a renewed urgency, thanks in no small part to NOD's newest weapon development, the Chemical (Tiberium) Missile. Reports mention that it accelerates the growth and spread of Tiberium, and posing a global threat.

My best guess is either Leszno or Poznan, but I know nothing about islands such as what we see in the map represented in real life. :shrug: Any polish goons care to help out with this one?

Location: Leszno or Poznan, Poland
Objective: Rescue the Mutant Prisoners and safely evacuate them from the area.

Briefing: Umagon has requested help to rescue her people from a NOD prison. The prison is located on an island to the east. NOD has a strong force in the area, both in outposts and spread through the nearby city. We have limited resources and no reinforcements are available, so avoiding patrols is vital to your success. Umagon has a team in the area already - if you can find them, they may assist you. Make your way to the prison and release the hostages. Once the prison is secure, we will send a transport to evacuate Umagon's people. There may be SAM sites nearby, so make sure the way is clear for the transport.

Author's note: I like the design of this map, and while NOD will constantly send units your way, its clearly meant to be a soft push towards your goal, rather than a means to punish slow players.
