In The Box

Riots have been quelled, but the war against the fractured Brotherhood of NOD continues. As well, Tiberium still threatens to overtake the entire planet; with limited resources and Tratos dead, GDI must turn to capturing CABAL in order to translate the Tacitus. It may be humanity's last hope at preventing Tiberium from poisoning the entire planet!

Somewhere at or near Gdansk, Poland.

Location: Gdansk, Poland (or the surrounding area)
Objective: Infiltrate and Capture CABAL's core.

Briefing: CABAL’s core is believed to be in this area. Using an engineer, infiltrate and capture the core. Cut off enemy reinforcements by destroying the two bridges that supply this base. Nod is utilizing self-powered laser fencing to protect the core from intruders. Disable this fencing by capturing the appropriate command stations using local civilian technicians. Once inside, neutralize any remaining defense systems guarding the core.

Author's note: The training wheels are off, and CABAL is not pulling any punches! Aside from the almost forced length of the mission, I did appreciate the bridge/reinforcement mechanic and the tactics used by the AI were legitimately fun to play against.
