GDI 13: Destroy the Chemical Supply Station
Destroy the Chemical Supply Station

With the mutants rescued from the NOD research facility, GDI began their move against a NOD chemical supply station. Destroying the base will seriously damage the Brotherhood's ability to deploy their new weapon against targets around the world.

I have no clue where this mission takes place specifically, so anywhere in this general area.

Location: South of Viborg, Denmark
Objective: Destroy the Chemical Supply Station

Briefing: This chemical supply station is providing vast quantities of Tiberium toxins to a number of NOD research programs in the area. Destroying this site will seriously hinder further NOD research and prevent this base from transporting reinforcements to others in the sector. Intelligence reports advise caution when near any of the chemical tanks and facilities, as the toxins contained within are highly corrosive and equally deadly to soldiers and vehicles.

Author's note: As a kid, this mission always gave me trouble, mainly because I always built on the low-ground... oh and I'd normally capture that refinery.

An apparent stowaway on the alien UFO, Umagon met face-to-face with Commander McNeil. Little is known about her, officially or otherwise. Despite their initial interactions, Umagon is clearly warming up to GDI, and Commander McNeil in particular.

Disruptor Tank
ARMOR: Heavy
WEAPON: Sonic Weapon

Recent developments aboard the Philadelphia have lead to breakthroughs in harmonic resonance. The Disrupter is the first to use this new technology. Firing a harmonic resonance wave, the Disruptor is capable of shattering any unit or structure
caught in the wave – enemy or ally alike. Care should be used in the positioning of Disrupter units as to minimise incidence of "friendly fire".

Author's Note: Never really used these in general, but as I'm replaying this I find myself building them now and again. Their status as a glass cannon means they'll never replace my beautiful army of 900 Titans.
