This page includes a transcript of Lone Guardian, the first Allied mission of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2.[1]


Eva Lee: Commander! Good morning. We've successfully instituted the President's emergency Lazarus Protocol. I'm Lieutenant Eva, the intel officer assigned to your command, and since you're the only commander left alive, I guess I'm pretty lucky to have a job.

Eva: It appears that we have suffered a full-scale Soviet invasion. Nearly all our major cities are under siege and our forces are in complete disarray. Please stand by commander, we have an incoming broadcast from General Carville at the Pentagon.

Ben Carville: I hope you're rested and ready commander, because as of 0800 hours you are in control of every satellite, base, tank, enlisted man, woman, and child in the eastern United States. You answer to the President... and you answer to me. Your ops officer and vital lifeline will be the Lieutenant. Your point man for this mission will be Special Agent Tanya.

Tanya: General, I hope the Commander is up to speed because we don't have time to waste.

Carville: I'm sure Tanya has every confidence in you, Commander.

Tanya: Oh you're sure. Well it's not your life that's on the line out here!

Carville: [Chuckles] She's the best there is but you'll get along better with the Soviets. You'll get started immediately. First stop - New York, the Lieutenant will give you the details.

Eva: Not long ago the Soviets made an amphibious landing on Manhattan Island and are using their ground troops to systematically take over the city. Fortunately we still have a hold on Fort Bradley, but our comm link has been severed. If you can get Agent Tanya into Bradley she will re-establish the link. Good luck Commander.

Operation: Lone Guardian - Location: New York
Objective 1: Destroy the Soviet Dreadnought fleet.
Objective 2: Make contact with Fort Bradley.
Objective 3: Keep Tanya alive.


The Soviets have invaded. They outnumber us ten to one. You must assist special agent Tanya in New York. We are marshaling our forces as fast as we can, Commander, but we need time. A small American base, Fort Bradley, is in the New York area. If you can make contact, they may be able to assist in the defense of New York. Tanya will be moving through a chaotic battlefield. Keep your eye out for targets of opportunity and watch for new mission objectives.

  • Objective 1: Destroy the Soviet Dreadnought fleet.
  • Objective 2: Make contact with Fort Bradley.
  • Objective 3: Keep Tanya alive.

Mission script

Mission start

Establishing battlefield control, stand by...

Eva: The Soviet navy is attacking the Statue of Liberty. We can't let them get away with that! Sir, is there anything you can do?

Incoming transmission...
Tanya: Tanya here, listen up! We got a couple commie dreadnoughts in the harbor, looking for a special sightseeing tour of the Hudson River. I say we give them a very special view of the bottom first.

Battle control online.

Objective 1

[Objective 1: Destroy all four Soviet DREADNOUGHTS]

[Objective 1 Complete]

[WARNING: Soviet PARATROOPERS are incoming]

The Statue of Liberty is destroyed by a V-3 rocket.

Incoming transmission...
Alexander Romanov: I offer special invitation to citizens of United States from the great Soviet Union. See your Liberty, how she lies broken before you... In but a moment's time your once powerful city of New York will follow in her footsteps. The choice is yours: you can continue to mourn your past, or surrender... and join us in the great Soviet revolution!

[These GI's have deployed their heavy machine guns.]

[HINT: DOUBLE-CLICK the GI's to switch them between DEPLOYED and MOBILE states]

Objective 2

[Objective 2: Rendezvous with FORT BRADLEY]

If player locates the three Grizzly tanks northwest of the map
Grizzly tank: Good to see you, sir! What are our orders?

Eva: Congratulations, we reestablished contact with Fort Bradley. They're turning over control of the base and troopers to you.

Incoming transmission...
Eva Lee: Good work Commander! We're back in contact with the Fort. Tanya sent over intel on the location of an important supply base in the area. General Carville would like you to dispose of it ASAP. Oh, keep up the good work sir.

[HINT: Select the infantry TAB to view additional PRODUCTION OPTIONS]

[WARNING: Soviet PARATROOPERS are incoming]

Objective 3

[Objective 3: Destroy the Soviet SUPPLY BASE]

Eva: Sir, this is an engineer. He can repair any Allied building, and once inside an enemy building, can turn it to our side. He is much smarter than the Soviet counterpart.

If player loses base power
Eva: We've seem to have lost power, sir. Build more power plants.

Eva: There's the supply base, destroy all of the buildings and we'll buy some time for the rest of the country.

Eva: Watch out for those petroleum barrels, they seem highly unstable. Perhaps we can use them to our advantage...

Eva: We've done it, sir! The supply base has been eliminated.
