|“|| Using intel gathered from Sakhalin Island, the Allies have discovered the location of several Soviet ICBM launchers holding the entire world at gunpoint. The European Alliance scrambles to destroy the launchers before they can be used against them.|
- Mission description
After remnant U.S. forces managed to recover the information they needed on the location of the ICBM launchers, they informed the European Alliance of the situation. The Alliance has taken no chances on this this mission since it will be deciding difference between victory and defeat.
As a result, the Pacific Front have agreed to send Kanegawa jamming equipment to them while the Euro Alliance prepared a strike force to deploy. Time was of the essence here. As soon as the Europeans landed, and with their communications cut, the Russians resort to a backup plan and start fuelling the ICBMs for immediate launch. If they launch, it would be both Armageddon and a final victory for the communist nations.
Fortunately, several European sleeper agents were around. The Allied Commander was ordered to secure a Field Bureau, in order to reveal the locations of the launchers. He was reminded that they would have only one shot at this. If it works, it would help change the course of the war for the Allied Nations.
Capturing the Field Bureau
Working with an inital team of Navy SEALS, the Commander made his way to the shoreline, destroying any submarines and killing any patrols that were in their way. After the beach was secured, a Voyager Transport arrived on the battlefield. The Commander ordered it to make its way to the shore and drop off its reinforcements, including the brand new Siege Cadres which were excellent at destroying enemy structures. With new units to reinforce the SEAL team, he ordered the task force to move out.
Fighting his way through Soviet territory, the Commander, and his troops, finally made their way to the Field Bureau. After clearing the enemy forces in the area, the double agent Engineer revealed himself and captured the building, completing the first objective.
Destroying the Topol-M platforms
Now that the Field Bureau was under their control, Allied intel used the data recovered from it to locate the Topol-M platforms. During this time, the Commander ordered in several reinforcements via an air drop due to Allied double agents disabling the power to the anti-air guns for a while. Eventually, the power came back online and he was unable to call in any more forces.
A few minutes later, a test missile launch was detected by Allied intel. It destroyed a nearby city, killing thousands of civilians. The Allies had to destroy the platforms before the real payload could be launched at cities across the globe. Making their way across the battlefield, the Commander ordered his units to target and destroy the launchers they came across. For each launcher that was destroyed throughout the mission, the Europeans sent more reinforcements into the area.
After destroying several, the launch of the platforms had fast forwarded from a few hours to a mere half hour, causing the Commander to rush to the next few launchers before they could fire the payload at another city. The fight was brutal, many Europeans lost their lives in the raid as a result of heavy Soviet defences. Eventually, the Commander was able to destroy all 6 ICBM platforms, completing the second and final objective of the mission. His forces were soon evacuated from the area before the Russians sent reinforcements to investigate.

As a consequence of these actions, the Soviets have dropped their slow pace, giving up their methodical absorption of countries, and commenced a massive and brutal blitzkrieg into Eastern Europe. Once Chinese reinforcements arrived to assist the Russians, the bad news began to pile up for the Allies.
Soon enough, they reached and partially captured a vital communications array in the Jizera Mountains, located in Czechoslovakia. With the threat of losing their communications to the Pacific Front, Allied Command ordered the Commander to head to the array and drive the Soviet forces out of the region.
