Command Directive: 543-Prochnov
Authorization: Moscow Premier
Directive : The Allies have stolen vital data on the design of our MIG aircraft. We have learned that the Allies are constructing a Mig of their own with a nuclear payload. We have established a base in the area, now it is up to you to destroy their prototype aircraft and the bases defending it.
You have been given a group of our new Tesla tanks to facilitate your task. They are irreplacable (sic), so do not waste them.
