|“|| Having 'borrowed' a Stalin's Fist prototype from the Russians, PsiCorps secretly meets with the leader of the terrorist group 'Scorpion Cell' in Cairo, who is willing to reverse engineer the machine in return for aid against the Allies in Africa.|
- Mission description
With the PsiCorps' initial goals are achieved in America, Yuri requests his proselyte to move on to the next phase of his plan – acquiring more support. For a while, Yuri's intelligence network are tracking a certain man by the name of Rashidi, who leads the African-Middle Eastern terrorist group Scorpion Cell currently based on the Sahel in a war of resistance – as he calls it – against the American influence in the region. Though his ultimate goal remains unknown, Yuri believes that Rashidi can be useful to furthering his plan.
Rashidi is not only known as a terrorist leader, but also a talented machinist. In fact, given the proper resources, he is not only the best in Africa, but probably, the world. His inventions, one of which is a robotic walker prototype, are strong for what they are, but due to lacking Mobile Construction tech, he cannot extend his "creativity" even further. Yuri have the PsiCorps persuade Rashidi into helping his cause by giving him what he really desires. In fact, Yuri, being not cleared to access the Soviet Weapons Protocol freely, needs the Mobile Construction technology as much as Rashidi does, so that the PsiCorps can get off the ground they've stepped on all the time. To make this happen, Yuri "borrowed" a Stalin's Fist prototype mobile War Factory which uses roughly similar technology with MCVs, and brought it to Rashidi, who agrees to strike a deal with the PsiCorps, but needs some time.
Actually the Proselyte did not want to wait and considered of mind-controlling Rashidi's forces, but he realized that Rashidi seems to have somewhat aware about the PsiCorps' powers. In fact, the Proselyte is being constantly watched by the Scorpion Cell fighters, and he has assassins lurking everywhere. Knowing this, the Proselyte have no choice but to follow whatever Rashidi wants to get him into Yuri's cause.
Raid on the embassy
Astonished with the Proselyte's skill in commanding his PsiCorps operatives and Scorpion Cell fighters to bring down the American embassy and clearing the city of Cairo from their presence, Rashidi praised him and remarks the stolen Stalin's Fist as the most valuable gift he ever received. He told the Proselyte to inform Yuri that he is pleased with Yuri's offering and agrees to cooperate with him. The Proselyte agrees and notes this moment as the start of a lasting, mutually beneficial partnership between the PsiCorps and the Scorpion Cell.
Returning to Russia without raising any suspicion to his Soviet overseers, the Proselyte was soon given another mission to crush the American fleet in the Caribbean Islands.
