|“||We have learned the path of evacuating Nod forces. They are moving through this valley. Cut them off so that they can't rejoin the main force. Attack and destroy all the vehicles in the Nod convoy.
- Mission briefing
Kane had successfully evaded the GDI's wrath. But the war in Europe was essentially won by GDI. Knowing this Nod forces had began to retreat to the center of their domain, Bosnia. By consolidating all their forces together they hoped to stage a last stand that would inflict massive losses on the GDI and buy time for their forces elsewhere in the world.
A powerful convoy of Nod vehicles leaving Belgrade was of particular concern to the GDI. Mark Jamison Sheppard gave James Solomon the urgent task of eliminating this convoy before it could escape to Bosnia. It was as he described it, "Fish in a barrel time".
James Solomon was given a hastily assembled force and immediately set about to the task of launching an assault that would eliminate the convoy. Though initially encountering Nod Artillery in the area he was not deterred.
