|“|| The Soviets are deploying more Psychic Beacons in order to subjugate their enemies. While trying to discover why the devices' influence is expanding, the Allies locate a structure that enhances mind control and launch a desperate attempt to destroy it.|
- Mission description
With the discovery of the Soviet Psychic Technology, US Intelligence had finally understood the root cause of their defeat. The Soviets had been using mind control since the start of the war, sabotaging the Peacekeeper Missiles and allowing them to march on through the country nearly unhindered.
Of course, after discovering the Psychic Beacon in New York, more of them will start popping up in the United States, like mushrooms in every major city. If left unhindered, they will bring every man, woman and child under Soviet control. For now, Intel has located of two new Psychic Beacons located in St. Louis and Chicago.
So far, the Allies understand little about the Psychic Beacon device and its range. However, the one in Chicago is a lot different because a second device, located a short distance from the beacon, which can increase the frequency, expanding the radius. If this Beacon and Amplifier are not stopped, it might bring the whole continental US under Soviet control. The Allied Commander was selected to control of the operation, leading a fleet into Lake Michigan. Once they destroy the Psychic Beacon there, they'll get assistance from the freed victims to destroy this Amplifier before the Soviets can activate it!
Destroying the Psychic Beacon
Wasting no time, the Commander ordered his Destroyers and Navy SEALS to keep the Soviet and mind controlled Allied vessels occupied while his Aircraft Carriers took care of the Grand Cannons & Patriot Missile Sites guarding the harbor. After these were cleared, he ordered them to make a quick surgical strike on the Psychic Beacon in order to destroy it as he wanted to minimize causalities in the Allied ranks since he'll be using them later.
Once the Psychic Beacon was destroyed, the freed American forces attacked their Soviet masters and cleared the harbor. Now that he had a base, he began constructing war factories and expanding his refinery operations. He also built more shipyards in order to support his naval fleet.
Destroying the Psychic Amplifier
Allied Intel soon gave the location of the Psychic Amplifier, located a short distance from the Commander's base, just over the Calumet river. He was soon given a timer to show him how long it would be until the Amplifier activates. With this information, he constructed an army to break through the Soviet defences in order to reach the device.
The Commander suffered moderate losses as he had to fight his way through a tight street environment. The Soviets had used the buildings as cover, creating killing zones for the Allied troops. Regardless, he eventually broke through the line of Soviet defences and reached the base containing the Psychic Amplifier. After losing many more units, he managed to reach the device and destroy it, preventing the activation.
Normally, this would be a cause for celebration. However, moments after destroying the Amplifier, sirens rang across the city. The Commander, nor the Allied troops, had any idea what was going on. Suddenly, a MIDAS ICBM landed right on the old Soviet base, annihilating both American and Latin Confederation forces. The city of Chicago was now in complete ruins.
|“|| Today is a day that will go down in infamy. Although we have delayed nationwide mind control, a price has been payed for it with the annihilation of the Chicago and a large portion of our remaining forces. We must seek help from our allies.|
- Battlefield Report
Despite the Allied Commander preventing the Psychic Amplifier from being activated, he could only look in horror as he saw his forces present in the city being wiped off the face of the planet by a MIDAS ICBM. Those who survived retreated elsewhere. In St. Louis however, the Psychic Beacon is successfully deployed and the US taskforce that gathered there are now under Soviet control, ready to bring down their own country for the 'Great Revolution'.
U.S. forces were now nearly in taters as they try to figure out some sort of miracle...
They soon get their miracle when the Japanese give them intel about a facility that contains the locations of the MIDAS ICBMs.
