This mission starts off with the commander’s base built in the water just north of the co-commander’s base built on land to the west area of the map. The first task should be to build a Barracks and War Factory on the land next to the co-commanders base, in order to easily reinforce land operations. It is also possible to build a barracks on the northern piece of land above the commanders base in order to secure the area and the Swiss bank that is there. Make sure to build some defenses for the naval base, to allow it to handle any harassing units without having to draw your attention from the fight on land.
The Allied commander will soon start using the chronosphere in order to transport naval forces into the field of engagement, during which the first attempt, 4 akula subs will join the fight under your command. Stingrays are helpful in this mission due to their mobility, and the spread of enemy forces in both the water and land. Start taking the Swiss banks and other capturable facilities as soon as possible, using infantry in garrisoned buildings nearby to defend the captured civilian buildings.
After clearing out the main strip of land where the banks are, start working on the Allied naval base, while the co-commander handles the land Allied base in the bottom left. Using Natasha from the land ramp behind the naval base allows the avoiding of naval defenses, thanks to her long range for her airstrike ability. Move your forces to help finish off the land forces one dealing with the Naval base.
A cut scene occurs after clearing the map, with Krukov bitching about.. something, he doesen’t make logical sense. What an ass. Once the cut scene is over, the map is expanded with Krukov joining the soviet forces. His HQ must be defended, so placing some defense turrets nearby his base will help with that goal, along with constructing ore refineries next to the ore spots next to his base in order to support your war effort.
With most of the Allied forces already vanquished, and having a serious economy going thanks to the ore spots taken near Krukov’s base and the Swiss Banks (which Krukov eventually captures or “requisitions” some from the main soviet forces) from her on just push to the north east with all your forces at once.
Take out the outskirts first before working on the main area defended by prism towers. Having V4 Rocket Launchers at this point is invaluable, since they completely outrange the prism towers defending this last pocket of resistance. Once the turrets have been destroyed at range, its free reign for the rest of your combat units, so just let them run in, mop up, and secure the victory for Soviet forces in this mission.
