After a series of attacks on the Chinese positions, all of the Kanegawa Industries' facilities under their control have been placed on lockdown, terminating the Revolt's access to their research. To continue work on new weapons based on particle collision tech, the leader decides to retrieve it.
- Mission description

Operation: Tainted Empire is the third mission of the Foehn Origins campaign.


-- The operation in Fort Shevchenko was a success, but it would appear the Chinese army has begun to take additional countermeasures. -- After the capture of Ironwing, they started reinforcing their positions as they now believe that there are traitors among their ranks. -- This is an issue, as they have fortified positions around the occupied KI facilities in Japan, which were affiliated with the Leader, working on new tech together with her science divisions. -- In order to secure Our continued growth, We have to reestablish contact with KI and retrieve the crucial workprints for particle collision-based weaponry they were making in Hidaka Mountains.

-- The region is also playing host to a significantly sized portion of Yuri's forces, which appear to be making a play for the Hokkaido Seismic Stabilizer. -- In order to maintain the relationship We have with KI and the allies in Pacific Front, it is within our best interests to engage the Epsilon in a counterattack and drive them out as this benefits us in multiple ways. -- This base provides us with a window of opportunity to hack into Yuri's communication network, and learn more about his next moves. -- Battlefield recon suggests the Seismic Stabilizer is still under Chinese control. -- While it would be in Our best interests to ensure it stays standing, the Chinese forces are going to engage on Us regardless._

Objective 1: Reach the Kanegawa Industries outpost.
Objective 2: Wait for further instructions.


Into the KI HQ

Four Kappa Tanks, three Armadillos and two Repair Drones soon arrived at the banks of the Hidaka Mountains. The local Kanegawa Headquarters was also positioned: It was in front of the Pacific Front outpost, but was sealed by the Chinese army. The task force quickly started the operation: Kappa Tank moved forward, sunk the enemy's Armadillo, and hit the oil drums next to the Sentry Guns. Just half a minute after completing this action, Yunru paradropped from Ironwing to the area.

VOLKNET has analyzed that the risk of frontal offense is very high, and there is a trail to the east. Although farther away, it is also safer. After proceeding cautiously, this task force arrived at the entrance of the outpost and used the sent Blizzard Tanks to destroy the Gyrocopter hovering over it. Finally, the entire task force arrived at the outpost and Yunru entered the Kanegawa headquarters.

Foehn took over the defensive structures at the outpost, and the surrounding Chinese troops also responded quickly. At the same time, four Zubrs, loaded with Sentinels and Nuwa Cannons, also arrived here, as well as some Pacific Front infantry. After quickly knocking down the enemy, VOLKNET discovered that enemy Kirov Airships was approaching the Kanegawa Headquarters and he commanded the previously released Sentinels to shoot them down. At this time Yunru's retrieval has also been completed, and then left Kanegawa HQ.

Defense from the Epsilon

VOLKNET learned two news after gaining access of the KI production buildings: First, Epsilon had two Radar Spires here, which being captured would learn about what Epsilon Army are doing recently. The second was that they are trying to destroy the Seismic Stabilizer, which was protected by the Chinese army, to completely destroy everything here.

After capturing Tech Hospital, VOLKNET received the troops of main Revolt and also Spies, and the technicians in KI HQ also obtained the ability to use EM Pulse. Second, three Psychic Beacons were also positioned and they were used to control three other Pacific Front outposts. VOLKNET decided to build some Hailstorms to destroy the nearest beacon from KI HQ. After discovering the blueprint for Future Tank X-0, his troops also discovered four larger Future Tanks on the west side, but the methods to control them went missing.

While strengthening the defense of the Epsilon invasion forces, VOLKNET was also trying to destroy those beacons with minimal losses. Whenever a beacon is destroyed, the liberated PF forces will join Foehn, and more support will be sent at these fortify outposts. Among them, after gaining control of the eastern outpost, VOLKNET also received 6 Jackal Racer prototypes — although it was temporarily impossible to build more.

Recovering the Future Tanks

After a while, the Chinese outpost finally failed their defense against Epsilon, and VOLKNET began to hurry up. He dispatched some Kirov Airships to rush directly to Tech Missile Silo that harassed outposts again and again. In the meantime, he also discovered 4 hidden Radar Domes in the North, South-West, East, and Middle. He decided to repair these and he found the codes stored in these domes and reactivated those Future Tank Alpha prototypes, armed with HE grenades and particle colliders additionally, as a result.

Capturing the Radar Spires

VOLKNET's troops raised more and more and began attacking several Epsilon bases. Unexpectedly, as he directed the troops to clear the obstacles around Radar Spire, he learned that the Foehn was able to convince some other Pacific Front forces that was unaffiliated with KI joined the Revolt's cause. They continuously drop their infantry here to support Foehn's actions, even if the offense takes a long time. However, it is relatively easy for them to destroy the Psychic Dominators outside the Epsilon base.

Eventually, both Radar Spires were occupied as the remaining troops of the Epsilon Headquarters fled.


The data acquired from Epsilon's comm network confirms the worst. Yuri has accelerated his operation due to continuous attacks from the reorganized Allied forces in the Southern Hemisphere. The Revolt must make its way to Bering Strait with haste.
- Situation assessment

After Foehn and the local Pacific Front forces wiped out the local Epsilon forces, intelligence from Radar Spire showed that the Allies has begun to make the most aggressive attack on Epsilon's headquarters in Antarctica. But they think that this is not a good news - in this case there will be no more time left for them. After the local Pacific Front troops were assembled, all Foehn Revolt set out for the Bering Strait, where located near the headquarters of the Alaska. No one knew what they would experience in the Bering Strait.
