RAR Soviets Logo The following is based on the Soviet campaign of Red Alert and might contradict canon.
The Allied base in this region is proving to be problematic. Your mission is to take it out so that we can begin to move forces through this area. As long as they have communications they will be able to call upon heavy reinforcements. Crush their communications, and they should be easier to remove.
- Mission briefing

Behind the Lines is the fourth Soviet mission in Red Alert 1.[1]


Following the death of an Allied spy in Sweden, Nadia turned to the Commander for a job well done. The Soviet forces were preparing an assault on Germany, but the Allies were also aware of the impending attack. Nadia tasked the Commander to take some men behind enemy lines and disrupt Allied communications so that the Soviets can attack Berlin with the element of surprise.

New units[]

  • Heavy tank
  • V2


The Commander's successful efforts meant that Berlin fell just in time for Stalin's success in capturing the whole of Germany. The next mission takes place on an island, near Greece.


The player starts out with heavy tanks and V2. Deploy the MCV and build tanks and Yaks. Use the Yaks to defend the heavy tanks from infantry attacks while getting Heavy tanks to deal with the Allied armor in the area.

The Allies strongest tanks are no match for the Soviets starting tank the heavy tanks one on one so get heavy tanks. Build an airfield and Yaks but beware of the rocket soldiers in the area. Paradrop infantry into the radar dome to destroy it which will stop the medium tank reinforcements.

Destroy all Allied units and structures and the mission is a win.
