|“|| The Soviets have captured an American naval base in Florida as a part of their invasion plan, severely limiting Allied marine activities along the East Coast. A strike team is deployed in order to weaken the Soviets in the region and retake the harbor.|
- Mission description
Heaven and Hell is the fourth mission in the Act One Allied campaign.
With the first main wave wiped out and the destruction of the Kirov armada, Latin Confederation commanders thought that there were more defences at the US/Mexico border than they had initially believed. As a result, they ordered their troops to fall back in order to reorganize and regroup.
With the border secured for the time being, Command now decided to focus on the Soviets naval influence on the East Coast. Ever since they attacked both sides of the U.S., they were fearful of how powerful the Allied navy was. As a result of this paranoia, they've now captured the Mayport Naval Yards in Florida in order to keep the fleet contained. If the Americans wanted any chance of driving out the Soviet invaders, this port needed to be secured.
They've tasked the Commander with liberating the Naval Yards by first capturing the Port Authority building, with help from Special Agent Tanya. Once that was secured, the Allies would send him an MCV to help build up a strike force to drive the Soviets out. It would be tough as Tanya and several other troops would be on their own in the inital phases of the mission. The Commander must succeed, or else the entire East Coast would fall!
Retaking the Port Authority
While Battlefield Control was being established, the Commander watched as two Humvee's arrived. One Humvee contained Tanya and a Field Medic while the other contained an Engineer. Tanya jumped out and cleared the area of enemy Conscripts. The captured Rocketeers commented that the Soviets thought it would be funny to kill them with either PPsh41 rifles or Flak Cannons.
After taking care of local enemy troops, Tanya destroyed the Flak Cannons that were surrounding the Rocketeers and retook the ammo in a depot that was captured by the Soviets, with the assistance of a local driver. They could now jet up into the sky to help escort Tanya to the Port Authority building.
Making their way past many patrols, including several anti-air vehicles, Buratinos and defences, Tanya cleared out the Soviet outpost and the Engineer entered the Port Authority building, taking it back under Allied control and completing the first objective.
Destroying the Soviet submarines
After retaking the Port Authority, Allied Intel pointed out a sizeable amount of submarines in the area. The Commander was unable to take them out with the forces he had so Allied Command ordered him to eliminate anti-ground and air defences near some local helipads so they could paradrop more reinforcements.
Despite the amount of Pyros and other Soviets forces in the area, Tanya destroyed the defences surrounding the helipads. Allied reinforcements arrived in the shape of an Elite Navy SEAL team. With the addition of these commandos, the Commander located the positions of the Soviet submarines in the Naval Yards and destroyed them all. The Port Authority's sonar detected no more submarines in the area, thus, the second objective was completed. Allied Command could now sigh with relief, if the building was destroyed, since it was no longer important in the grand scheme.
Now that the Soviet submarine fleet was wiped out, the Allies prepared to retake the port. They sent the Commander an MCV ordered him to wipe out the Soviet base in the area. As he was building up his own base, he cleared the south-east sector of Soviet forces in order to give him room to expand.
The fight was long and brutal, many troops and vehicles were lost on both sides and many attacks/counter-attacks were made on each others bases. Eventually, the Commander was able to breach the defences of the Soviet base and wipe out every single building. Without support, the remaining Russian survivors were forced to retreat from Mayport. Despite all the losses, the Commander had, at last, succeeded and the Naval Yards were under Allied control once again.
|“|| Your successful infiltration of Mayport has given us some valuable naval presence in the area. But there is no rest for the wicked: all communications with the forces sent to recapture New York City have gone dark, and it's up to us to investigate.|
- Battlefield Report
Just as the Commander thought he could rest, he received orders from Allied Command. All American forces in New York City had gone silent. No communications could be made with the task force sent to recapture the city. As a result, they ordered the Commander to investigate the area and find out what happened. The things he would find in the city would shock Allied Command to its core...
