The mission starts with you in command of four hydrofoils as you and the co-commander escort the MCVs down the river. Switch weapons between the AA cannon and the weapon disabler as necessary, using the later on the tesla coils that guard the land ramps to the MCV’s deploy spots. It may be necessary to instruct the co-commander to destroy the towers with his dolphins specifically.
Once both MCVs have been escorted, you are granted the southern base, while the escorting Naval units are removed from the map. Start working on building an extensive force and well defended base, as this mission will be a tough one. At one point Tanya calls for your assistance at the southwestern point of the map. Send some forces to rescue her as soon as possible, since her abilities will be helpful later.
The exposed super reactors are easily reached by spies, so keep them alive as long as you would like the ability to shut down Olegs defenses, or optionally take them out early on for the collateral damage they can cause on the rest of the base. Keeping spies handy for this purpose makes this mission unbelievably easier to handle the heavy defenses with. Make sure to have some engineers inside of IFVs as well, to remove terror drones that the Soviets use frequently in this mission.
Once the outskirt defenses have been handled and the super reactors destroyed, the flak cannons around the iron curtain will be sold off. At this point construct bombers and have them perform non-stop runs on all the remaining tesla coils to make a path for your ground forces to plow onwards.
Once the Iron Curtain is down, the rear portion of the base is now vulnerable. Send a large force at the same time as instructing the co-commander to attack in order to combine forces. There are 2 Apocalypse tanks at each outer ramp, and 1 apocalypse at each inner ramp leading to the final HQ. These pose the biggest threat here, but can be easily overwhelmed with focus fire and a large diverse group. Once they’re down, you should be free to raze the HQ to the ground. Once its left in rubble, this mission ends in Allied victory.
