Allied Mission 2: A Red Enigma
With the Germans ousted from London, a celebration would seem to be in order — but that would be foolish considering that kicking the Krauts out of England’s capital is only the first step of many toward total and complete victory. Knowing how rabid the Germans are to acquire new weapon technology, General Wells has devised a plan to lure them into an ambush. The bait? New radar equipment that would be invaluable to the Nazi war effort if they could capture it.
But there’s not much chance Lynch is going to let that happen.
Key Tactics and Battle Tips
Just as in the previous mission, you don’t have much time to enjoy the scenery! Start immediately by pausing the game and selecting your Headquarters. Queue the production of first a Studebaker and then an Engineer, then select the existing Engineer and have it build a Supply Stash. By the time the Supply Stash is complete, the Studebaker produced by the Headquarters will already have a load of ore from the mine for it. Be sure to order the Supply Stash to construct two extra Studebakers to collect resources from the mine. In the meantime, order the Engineer to erect a Weapons Factory and Barracks, and order the Core Units (the veteran units from the previous battle) and Lynch escort the Bridging Unit to the northeast and build the bridge that will bring in reinforcements — you desperately need them. They’ll come across the moment the bridge is completed.
At that point, you’ll learn your outposts aren't responding, and you'll have a new objective on your hands: secure each of the four guard posts. Construct a few Pillboxes and/or AT Turrets to protect the eastern flank of your base, and when you have enough Resources build a couple of Airports — the planes they produce can provide aerial cover and respond quickly should trouble arise. You’ll also want to order your Weapon Factory produce a few Priests and Matildas to back up those defensive fortifications guarding the eastern part of your base.
