Gen Gameicon The following is based on Generals cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Black Sheep was the name of a GLA mission cut from Command & Conquer: Generals before its release. In this mission, the player is tasked with eradicating civilians in a town sympathetic to Chinese forces. This mission was likely meant to take place between Pillage the Village and Astana City.

The player is given a quota of civilians (typically 300) to kill and is given chemical weapons (namely Toxin Tractors and Anthrax Bombs) to complete the mission. The player also battles Chinese troops, as the People's Liberation Army has a major presence in the town.

In 2009, to celebrate the sixth anniversary of Generals, Electronic Arts released the scenario for free download. The mission can be downloaded here.

  • Despite being cut, footage of this mission can still be seen in the recap video at the end of the GLA campaign in Generals. Also, text and audio associated with the mission can be found in the game's files.
  • This mission can be played in Zero Hour, which grants access to all Zero Hour exclusive content, including Fake Buildings. The player can gain access to black markets by constructing a fake one and upgrading it to a real structure, despite it not being originally available in this mission.
  • Similar to Pillage the Village, this mission also displays HP for civilians.
  • Chinese forces will try to disrupt your movement from the base by constantly deploying Cluster Mines by air. If the player captures the Chinese Command Center, the plane (now in GLA colors) will still drop the Cluster Mines, but the mines will no longer harm the GLA.
  • Anthrax Bomb in this mission can be obtained by destroying the Pharmaceutical Factory. If the player did not notice this after some time, the "informants" will reveal its location to the player.
