|“||Your mission: Use your commando to establish control on our side of the river. We will send some help when all SAM sites are taken out. Then send your forces across the river and attack Nod from the rear. Destroy them all. They won't be surprised for long, so act quickly.
- Mission briefing
GDI was able to send a lone commando into a heavily defended Nod zone. His plan was to eliminate all Nod SAM sites on his side of the river so that reinforcements could land. With the area then secure GDI would send forces across by air and strike Nod in the rear.
