The Motherland is a Commander's Challenge mission and features a second-last appearance of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This also contains the second-last appearance of Vera Belova, one of three Soviet Commanders plus Oleg Vodnik and Nikolai Moskvin are needed to be defeated by FutureTech. The Futuretech Commander needs to set-up anti-air defenses to take Belova's slowest aircraft of all time, down to the ground. Kelly Weaver thinks that victory gets closer for FutureTech's businesses with at least forty-five technologies, but another five to go. This is the forty-sixth mission between the aftermath of Red Crush and before the misson, Come and Get It.
