Part 28: NOD 10: Escort the Bio-Toxin Trucks

NOD 10: Escort the Bio-Toxin Trucks
Escort the Bio-Toxin Trucks

With GDI forces distracted, and public trust in the group waning, Kane and the Brotherhood use this to their advantage by secreting away several bio-toxin trucks. It is imperative that those trucks survive.

Looks to be somewhere west of Fort Worth, Texas, although pinpointing a location is difficult.

Location: West of Fort Worth, Texas.
Objective: Locate, and Escort the Bio-Toxin trucks past the GDI Checkpoint.

Briefing: Nod forces were recently forced out of this area. However, spies report that the Nod bio-toxin facility has not yet been destroyed by GDI troops. The Cyborg Commando and his team should be able to slip through the main GDI force and
recover two tankers full of bio-toxin - provided we act quickly.

Author's note: A nice, short, simple map... provided you don't "explore" for a bit. It's the first appearance on the Cyborg Commando, one of the best units in the game.

Occupation: Supreme Commander of GDI
Voiced/Played by: James Earl Jones

The Supreme Commander of GDI, he oversees GDIs actions from the GDI Space Station Philadelphia. Gen. Solomon was taken aback by the return of Kane, but quickly called for one of his more promising commanders, Michael McNeil. Tasks Com. McNeil with destroying the NOD forces responsible for the attack on Phoenix Base. Believes the Brotherhood of NOD is attempting to steal GDI technology. Disapproves of McNeil's methods, despite the results he gets. Appears to be working with certain members of the Brotherhood of NOD, either to keep them in check, or for other purposes.

Cyborg Commando
RANGE: Medium
ARMOR: Heavy
WEAPON: Cyborg cannon

Those cyborgs that perform well are further modified and promoted to the Nod Cyborg Commando ranks. Packing enough firepower to take out entire bases, the Cyborg Commando is a large threat on the battlefield. Armed with a chain gun and flame-thrower, the Commando can make quick work of vehicles, infantry and structures.

Author's Note: Awesome. The Cyborg Commando is fantastic and great at most roles; the only major downside is that, much like his regular cousins, he cannot regain legs if they are blown out from under him. Still amazing though.
