|“||Use a GDI Commando to infiltrate the Nod base. **** ** destroy the ******** so that the base is incapacitated. Get in, hit it, and get the **** out.
- Mission briefing
Following the GDI victories in Germany and Ukraine and with Mark Jamison Sheppard still in the UN, James Solomon had been placed under the direct command of J.C. Carter. Following the Czech Republics defection to the Nod cause J.C. Carter had been tasked with commanding the GDI forces invading the Czech Republic.
The commando was brought to a small pair of islands at the edge of the area. Once there, he destroyed the two SAM sites located there. When the SAM sites were destroyed, a Chinook helicopter arrived to carry the commando unit to the mainland, staying to help transport it when necessary. The commando worked his way towards the Nod base. Along the way, he successfully avoided any Nod vehicles which his weapons could not adequately damage.
Once at the base, a decision had to be made as to which building needed to be destroyed. It is not known if the commando unit correctly determined that it was to destroy the airstrip. Having destroyed the building the commando unit fled.
Note: If the commando destroys the airstrip, the subsequent mission, Finish The Nod Base, is skipped as this is the "correct" choice. However, it should be noted that whichever other building is destroyed in this mission is still destroyed in Finish The Nod Base. Therefore, if you plan to complete that mission, an important building such as the Refinery should be targeted to make it easier.
Wrong building was destroyed
Having destroyed the wrong building, GDI was forced to launch a full assault on the base.
Airstrip was destroyed
By destroying the airstrip, GDI won the battle. It's unknown what the Nod forces proceeded to do.
Nod forces however as they invaded from the north-east were aided by pro-Nod rebels in Italy. At the same time their conquest of Turkey allowed them to launch their assault on Ukraine, which included an amphibious assault on the southern coast made possible by Nod control of the Black Sea.
