Yuri has established cloning facilities in Sydney, Australia. It is believed he plans to clone the world leaders. We must put an end to this operation at any cost.
- Mission briefing

Clones Down Under is the fifth mission of the Allied campaign in Yuri's Revenge.[1]

Background

Einstein has thanked the Allied Commander for his daring rescue in Egypt from Yuri's Psychic Dominator blunder. The German Chancellor was happy to see his scientist, who helped the Allied forces against Yuri's Army, returned home.

Meanwhile, General Carville and his intelligence officer, Eva has told the Allied Commander that Yuri is secretly making clones of Allied leaders at a cloning laboratory located in Sydney, one of Australia's most important cities. The Allied Commander is then sent to the city, tasked with destroying the cloning facility.

Yuri deployed Boomer submarines in the area to defend his cloning lab, Eva warns the Commander that they are armed with both torpedoes and missiles.

Force composition

The Allies have a base near the Sydney Opera House. There is an Allied fleet containing Destroyers and Dolphins defending the base. The Allied ground forces at the base are not very substantial but the Commander is authorized to train infantry and build tanks. And, the Korean Air Force is sending a fleet of Black Eagles to reinforce local Allied base.

Yuri has a base guarding the cloning facility. The base is guarded well by Gatling Cannons and Psychic Towers. The cloning facility is able to "produce" large groups of Initiates. Yuri has taken the control of a civilian Hospital in Sydney, thus making his infantry very powerful. Yuri also has captured the Airport of Sydney so he can air drop Initiates to assault the Allied forces.

Yuri also built a naval base with a fleet in Sydney. Yuri's fleet has a dozen Boomers which have the ability to bombard shore targets with heavy missiles. The two Submarine Pens are protected by a Psychic Tower and Gatling Cannons.

Events

Sinking Yuri's Fleet

As soon as the Commander arrives, one of Yuri's Boomer subs assault him with their long range missiles. Luckily the Patriot missile system already in place manages to shoot down all missiles and the Boomer is sunk by Destroyers and Dolphins. To intercept the missiles, the Commander should build a Aegis Cruiser and guard it with the destroyers. The Commander should also sends GIs to garrison buildings near the base, repelling Yuri's infantry and tanks.

Soon Yuri sends out much of his Boomers to destroy the Allied base. The Boomers have tough armor so the Destroyers and Dolphins are quite inefficient at attacking them. The Commander quickly sends a Navy SEAL team to blow up all Boomers detected by Destroyers and Dolphins.

After the attacking subs are destroyed, a dozen of Black Eagles of Korean Air Force join the battle and destroy Yuri's shipyards. Yuri cannot produce more Boomers once the Submarine Pens are destroyed.

Fighting in the Streets

The Commander sends an infantry company with GIs and Engineers to gain the control of the Hospital and the Airport from Yuri. Yuri also clones a lot of Initiates to fight the Allies for control of the city. Though the Initiates garrison many of the buildings in Sydney, the Allied forces are still able to secure the Hospital and the Airport, and garrison the buildings near them. The Commander can also capture a Machine Shop near a large ore field on the northern coast of the city, but beware. The machine shop and ore field are very close to the small base guarding Yuri's sub pens. They will send forces after your newly captured buildings, so be sure to garrison troops nearby to defend. Use your provided Grizzly Tanks to draw Yuri's Gatling Tanks close to the garrisoned buildings so they can be quickly destroyed. The large ore field near the Machine shop can be used as a building point for a Refinery, for faster resource gathering.

Yuri also sends out his new Chaos Drone to disrupt the Allied defenders. The Allied Commander has to order his GIs stay in the garrisoned buildings to avoid being affected by the hallucinatory gas of the Drones.

Destroy Yuri's Cloning Facility

The Commander builds a small base near the Airport, and begins to attack Yuri's cloning facility from the backside of Yuri's base. The Prism Tanks destroy a few Psychic Towers and Gatling Cannons defending the base, and a Navy SEAL team blows up several of Yuri's Bio Reactors, powering down Yuri's base. The cloning facility creates a group of Initiates as the "material" of the remaining Bio Reactors but they are killed by the Navy SEALs before they could reach the Bio Reactors. Then the Navy SEALs and Prism Tanks simply destroyed all buildings in the base.

Repel the Banzai Charge

Though Yuri's cloning base is destroyed, there are still many cloned Initiates hiding in the buildings of Sydney. They begin to assault the Allied forces under Yuri's command. They are too many Initiates so the GIs garrisoning buildings are outnumbered. The Commander sends Navy SEALs and Dogs to the street. They slaughter Yuri's Initiates easily.

Destroy Yuri's Naval Base

Now Yuri's naval base is an easy target for the Allies. The Prism Tanks and Destroyers simply wipe it out.

Trivia

  • There is a small glitch in this mission: three convoy trucks are placed in the southeast corner of the map. Despite them being labeled as "Truck (loaded)," destroying the trucks do not yield bonus crates.
  • Civilian traffic moves on set paths along the roads of the city in this mission. If the player captures the means to mind control technology, (Psychic Towers or Yuri Clones), and use them to mind control a civilian vehicle moving on a path, one will find that any vehicle mind controlled from their set path will be replaced by another that drives into the map from the outside.
  • Instead of the McKong Burger franchise seen on other Allied Maps, Sydney instead has a McRoo Burger franchise. Several of the burger joints are scattered around the city.
