|“|| PsiCorps, now at the height of their strength, mobilizes their troops to capture the Leninisk Cosmodrome and steal its rocket tech for their own purposes. It is only a matter of time before Yuri reveals his true intentions to the world.|
- Mission description
Yuri's Message: "Proselyte.. I understand the stress has been a lot on your mind, but please have faith in me - we are nearly ready. No more skulking around in shadows. No more futilely pulling strings. Soon, we will have the power to make our vision not only overt, but a reality. Our armies have been building slowly, and they will soon strike. The treaty between the Pacific Front and China is broken, and now fighting desperately rages on in Korea. I believe the former will soon return to the status of being conquered instead of being a partner in crime. Furthermore, to discourage anymore rash moves by Chinese command, I faked intelligence reports that the Union has more MIDAS warheads, and while the Soviets, I think, also have seen the reports, they for obvious purposes have decided to keep our charade going.
Now, comes the final move. You've been with me all these hard times, it's only fitting I give you the honor of this task. With the Soviets having to divert most of their armies to the East, control in Europe is wavering. Further, I sense something odd with our Comrade-Commander, who is back to his usual operations in America. Maybe he suspects something, but that is neither here nor there. What I need you to do is capture the Leninsk Cosmodrome in the Kazakh SSR.. yes it's an odd request, I understand that. But do you have faith in me, or my vision? You have so far, this is one path on that step. If you are confused, look at the future with your mind's eye.."
Objective 1: Capture the Rocket Launch Bay.
Objective 2: Defend the Rocket Launch Bay until extraction is complete.
Objective 3: Capture and defend the remaining Launch Bays.
Into the Cosmodrome
Due to the Rocket Launch Bays were quite necessary to their great endeavor, the Proselyte commanded his one of the task forces arrived at the Leninsk Cosmodrome to finish the extraction if the rocket engines. The initial task forces, that was, 6 Lasher Tanks, 4 Borillos, 2 Wolfhounds and some PsiCorps Troopers, immediately launched an attack on their nearest outpost. Just as the units opened fire, the Russians were alerted and called a large reinforcement, and they would arrive in two hours. This night would be doomed, not to be calm.
Wolfhounds wiped out the incoming Terror Drones, and then the entire forces advanced to an enemy checkpoint. At this time, Drillers sent some Soviet infantry. The Proselyte caused the task force to perturb the entrance to the base, including the newly sent Gatling Tanks: they mainly aimed to destroy the Terror Drones. After the base defense was completely destroyed, the Proselyte released Engineers from Borillos to capture the base and Rocket Launch Bay, as well as a Tech Maintenance Center.
After Rocket Launch Bay was captured, the Russians began to surround the Proselyte's forces in multiple directions. He captured some of the surrounding defense structures and built more Wolfhounds and trained more PsiCorps Troopers. Shortly afterwards, Drillers came to complete the extraction. The arrival of each one resulted in the completion of the extract mission by 10%. In the course of ten extractions, he received reinforcements in succession: Borillos→Lasher Tanks and Tesla Cruisers→Initiates and PsiCorps Troopers→Gatling Tanks.
Occupying the first launch bay
After the Rocket Launch Bay was extracted, the Proselyte was told that one was not enough, and there were an additional three in the area that needed to be extracted. Fortunately, he finally got reinforcement from MCV. At this time there was still approximately one and a half hours before the arrival of the main Russian troops. The Proselyte cleaned up an area in front of the initial base and deployed his MCV there, followed by support troops including Kirov Airships.
With Wolfhounds and PsiCorps Troopers providing a reliable defense, he captured the two Tech Oil Derricks near his new base. He then discovered that the Russians built an Iron Curtain Device and used it to protect the three rockets.
He first used the Kirov Airships to destroy the Tesla Reactors on the north base, cut off their electricity, and then the Proselyte used Wolfhounds to destroy everything except Rocket Launch Bay there. Since the rocket was also protected by Iron Curtain, the Proselyte decided to put an Engineer on standby here, and then he started preparations for the Iron Curtain to power off.
Occupying the second launch bay
The northwestern base was larger and more defensive. The Iron Curtain Device was not only located here, but there were even Apocalypse Tanks. The Proselyte slowly destroyed the base of the northwest side while defending enemy Kirov Airships attacking his base. This time, he decided to add some Scud Launchers. As his attacking forces continued to deepen, the power at the northwestern base was also interrupted, which allowed Engineers, already at the site of the north base, to quickly seize the opportunity to capture the second rocket.
As before, the Proselyte received reinforcements each time when Drillers completed several rounds of extraction tasks. After knowing that two more rockets had been stolen, the Russian army sent their attacking troops without any doubt, in an attempt to destroy them. However, there were a large number of units of the Proselyte near the two rockets. Even if they use their top siege weapon like Kirovs, the Russian counterattack had also failed.
Occupying the third launch bay
Before destroying the base in the west, the Proselyte added PsiCorps Troopers and quickly surrounded the third rocket not far from them in the direction of the base station on the northwest side. Then, Engineer captured this last one.
The Russian Army arrives
However, at this moment, the main Russian troops had already reached the southeast. The main force that arrived each round had a large number of advantages, and also included many Apocalypse Tanks. The Proselyte had spent time waiting for the two extractions before for too much time. These major forces quickly destroyed the base that the Proselyte had initially captured and the bases he had built himself. This made him decide to stick to this last rocket at all costs. Hard work pays off, and the ten rounds of extractions were successfully completed before the main forces approached the base on the west side.
|“|| The Soviets now know that I was behind recent events, but it doesn't matter now. They are a thing of the past. Now, our time has come. From hence forth, we shall be known as the Epsilon. Mankind's future shall be ours to command and conquer!|
- Yuri's message
The successful takeover of the Leninsk Cosmodrome eventually made the Russians realized that Yuri is the one responsible for the recent events. He contacted the Proselyte to not worry, as it now no longer matters and merely a thing of the past. Yuri announced to his followers, the Proselyte included, that their time has finally come, and from now on, they will be known as the Epsilon Army. He closed his declaration by stating: "Mankind's future shall be ours to command and conquer!"
After the Epsilon Army is founded, the Proselyte oversaw their buildup of a large military force strong enough to challenge the Allies and the Soviets using unconventional but effective weapons. He is also involved in the Epsilon's taking of Antarctica, where it henceforth becomes the Epsilon's base of operations.
It takes two years before the Epsilon are ready to reveal themselves into the world. The Proselyte is given the honor to take part in their action to make the world knew the Epsilon's existence: exposing the Russians' lies that has kept the world in check.
Behind the scenes
- In version 3.0, the player would not get MCV after extracting the first rocket, but was simply the "main force of PsiCorps" instead; however, Saboteur could be trained from Soviet Barracks.
- Hammer Defenses were existed in the Russian bases in version 3.0, and all of them was removed in version 3.3 because Hammer Defense had been used only by China before Juggernaut.
- Drillers extracted more slowly in version 3.0.
