Mission Transcript
RAR Soviets Logo.png The following is based on the Soviet campaign of Red Alert and might contradict canon.

You must defend a Soviet convoy that is moving through Allied occupied territory. Using the new MIG jet and a compliment of Yaks, get the convoy through the area intact.

Be careful -- your resources for this mission are very limited. If at least one truck makes it through to the other side, the mission will be a success.
- Mission briefing

Overseer is the tenth Soviet campaign mission in Command & Conquer: Red Alert.[1]

The mission is to escort three friendly supply trucks to the opposite end of the map using four Heavy tanks. The route however, is blocked by the Allies. The air force will assist the convoy, but their resources are limited with the exception of the spy plane. If all four heavy tanks are destroyed before they reach their objective, the trucks will attempt a run for it. When the Soviets are halfway through the map, a timer will trigger. If it ends, a convoy of Allied tanks will arrive from the east and give chase. The mission is a success if at least one truck makes it to the end.

Walkthrough

The player has limited resources and only four heavy tanks with air support. If at least one truck makes it to the other side of the map then the mission is completed. If all the heavy tanks are destroyed then the trucks will make a run for it.

Use Yaks to take out infantry and MiGs against tanks and turrets, but watch out for the AA guns and destroyers which will take out your aircraft.

The player will also get reinforcements of infantry and engineers which can be used to capture an Allied base. If any of the buildings are captured, a timer will count down. Once the timer reaches zero, a group of Allied tanks will arrive to take out the convoy.

Continue to clear the path to the west, igniting barrels to soften up the Allied defenses along the way. Get at least one truck to the other side to complete the mission.
