War Front strategy guide - Allied campaign

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.

Primary Objectives

  • Build up the trap by producing 5 combat units (or by receiving them as reinforcements)
  • Find and destroy the Nazi base in the northeast
  • Locate the secret base on a plateau to the south
  • Secondary Objectives
  • Create a pontoon bridge at the northwest ford
  • Secure the 4 Guard Posts

Key Tactics and Battle Tips

  • Construct the Pontoon Bridge as soon as possible to receive immediate reinforcements
  • Build up a defensive line east of your base early in the mission
  • Select Core Units before battle ends

Map Legend

  1. Send Core Units, Lynch and Bridging Unit here at start of mission
  2. Defensive line of Pillboxes, AT Turrets, and armored units, along with Mustangs on patrol
  3. Use a force of Pershings and Priests (with Repair Trucks) to capture Outpost
  4. Use a force of Pershings and Priests (with Repair Trucks) to capture Outpost
  5. Use a force of Pershings and Priests (with Repair Trucks) to capture Outpost
  6. Advance and destroy base (focus on AT88 Bunkers first)
  7. Capture Tank Factory to produce your own Wurfrahmen
  8. Use your entire force to overrun the last outpost
  9. Attack the secret base

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.
