Capture Umagon (New Detroit) is one of the two possible options for the sixth mission of the Nod campaign in Tiberian Sun.[1]


The mutant female may be trying to reach the underground railway system located in New Detroit. Move in and control the station before she arrives. If she boards the train then it must be stopped. This may be our last chance at capturing the abomination.

  • Objective One: Locate the train station in the area and capture it before Umagon flies in and boards the train to escape into the underground.
  • Objective Two: If Umagon boards the train before you have captured the station then you must stop the train before it leaves the region. Destroy the locomotive and we will be able to capture Umagon.



(The southern mission)

When Nod forces loyal to Slavik had returned to the alien ship that Vega had crashed in the southern United States they had expected to find the Tacitus where Kane had left it; within the bowels of the ship. To their distress they had found that the artifact was nowhere to be found and worse Umagon's Forgotten forces had ambushed the Nod force and destroyed it, thus gaining it seemed control over the Tacitus.

CABAL calculated that Umagon would either return to the GDI medical colony near Provo, Utah or to the underground railway entrance in New Detroit. Nod scouts quickly determined that she was enroute to the second objective. Slavik gave orders to the Nod forces operating in Mexico to quickly send forces in order to allow him capture Umagon before she would be able to escape into the underground railway at New Detroit.

Actually the Forgotten had removed the Tacitus from the ship before they had arrived back at the ruins of their old Sarajevo temple and Vega had taken the alien warship to the Americas and crashed it. But having failed to locate the Tacitus either in the alien ship or in the train which Vega had sent to the vicinity to retrieve the Tacitus for himself, Nod believed that Umagon must have it.


New Detroit[]

As Nod forces moved northwards from Mexico and towards New Detroit, McNeil became alarmed as Umagon and her team's land route to the underground railway station was now cut off by Nod forces and she risked death or capture. Umagon however was stubborn, refusing to change her destination despite Nod's manuevre to intercept her. As a result McNeil was forced to send an Orca Transport to her location and transport her to the railway station so that she could avoid being captured by Nod.

Nod forces arrived to the east of New Detroit, on the other side of the river. There were two bridges over the river, but the northern bridge had been destroyed. Bands of armed Forgotten roamed the streets of New Detroit, terrorising the civilian population and forcing them to hide in their homes; as the extensive GDI forces in the area turned a blind eye to their 'allies' activities. There was also a GDI base in the town guarding the route to the railway station.

Umagon's capture[]

There were two ways that the Nod could have captured Umagon. They could firstly had launched an assault on the GDI base and its forces along with the various bands of Forgotten, capturing the railway station and capturing Umagon as soon as she arrived by Orca Transport. The artillery unit that Nod forces had arrived with would then have been invaluable in eliminating the base.

Alternatively they could have outflanked the GDI, perhaps repairing the northern bridge in order to gain access to the raised area north of the base to gain access to a section of the railway track. Once they had done that, they could have used their Rocket infantry, Attack Cycles and Tick tanks to destroy the train's locomotive and drag Umagon from the immobile train.

But regardless of how operation was conducted it was a success and Nod forces were able to take Umagon into captivity before she could escape the area into the underground railroad proper.
