With the enemy closing in, PsiCorps intends to move the few remaining Topol-M units they secured to safety. The ICBM launchers will be escorted to a tunnel which leads to the underground Soviet base before enemy forces arrive.
- Mission description

Operation: Focus Shift is the tenth mission of the Epsilon Act One campaign.

Briefing

Yuri's Message: "Proselyte, I apologize for the circumstances I put you and PsiCorps through recently. I had to flee though - the tornado of lies continues to pile up around the Kremlin, and they finally suspected me enough that I had to go. You did well though, as PsiCorps is still active. We only need them a little longer. The Soviet comrades are also finally starting to figure out the endgame with the Chinese. Apparently their secrets are legion as well - the PRC, who requested the Soviets take out the Beacon, now say they did no such thing. On the other fronts, while the Black Forest and the Chronosphere I knew they were building is ashes thanks to a MIDAS, the invasion of Britain failed, as I knew about in the end. Even now, only one last MIDAS is all we have left. They may need it soon, for the Chinese accusations grow loud and numerous.

Fortunately, I think I have one last gambit up my sleeve, one that will allow me to return to Moscow. I need to deliver Romanov a trump card, and I shall. If the Chinese mobilization is anything like these numbers appear to be, they will need to take out the last MIDAS bomb first. I sense our Comrade-Commander is moments from learning of the awful truth in the Kagoshima KI complex in Japan. With that, China I feel will pounce, because they have nothing more to hide. When that happens, they will go after the two Topol-M platforms we hid. The Russians don't know the PRC already has the coordinates. You MUST protect the MIDAS, and get it to a bunker. Then, I can have the trust to go back to Moscow and face my accusers. If all else fails, and the device is destroyed, take our troops and run. I believe in you, and all my proteges, and I always did. "

Objective 1: Escort the Topol-M units to the underground bunker.

Events

Escorting the Topol-Ms

"It's a trap!"

Aftermath

Its over Proselyte - my gambit failed. I couldn't foresee all this. Now, my prodigy, you must be prepared to run. Take PsiCorps with you, and we'll meet up again, where we agreed to. Just trust yourselves, and your mind and soul, and you all will make it.
- Yuri's message

The destruction of Russia's last MIDAS ICBMs (or so they thought) means that everything that Yuri has been gambling with fails. He did not foresee that the Chinese had set up a trap right at the last moment. This is also the end for Yuri, as his failure means that he is no longer accepted by the Russians. Before contact with him was lost, Yuri told the Proselyte to take the PsiCorps with him and run away, and to contact him wherever possible should he make it. The Proselyte agrees and goes into hiding for some time with the PsiCorps.

It takes a while for the Proselyte and Yuri to get in touch with each other again. By this time, the Chinese invasion of Russia fails and they are now preparing for a second attempt. Yuri knew that this cannot be ignored, so he sends the Proselyte to instigate war between China and the Pacific Front.

It was not until over two years later that the truth behind the last MIDAS is revealed: Rashidi had ordered his Scorpion Cell to secretly recover the MIDAS ICBM, dismantle it and transport it away with Drillers, which is the reason why the warhead did not detonate upon the tunnel's destruction. He gave the MIDAS warhead to Yunru as a "fail-safe" measure against Yuri in exchange for her protection and technology, which she would use to bury her research and traces to "the Revolt" from the Soviet General and Epsilon's attempt to obtain them.
