After our setback in Europe, our recovery efforts have been hindered by GDI's use of its Ion Cannon. Now they have a relay in North Africa! We only have limited forces, but you must take out the Advanced Comm. Center or slowly Africa will begin to fall as well. - Mission briefing
With GDI in control of all of Europe they set their sights on Nod Africa. Advancing across the Mediterranean they set up a base in North Africa and constructed an Advanced Communications Center to coordinate with their Ion Cannon network. Nod, at risk of losing more of their territory in Africa in the wake of Kane's apparent death, sent a small force in the hopes that they can destroy this key structure and halt GDI's advance.
