GDI 5: Restoring Power
Mission 5AW: Restoring Power (Germany West)
[Upper Left Route]
Your objective in this mission is to repair the GDI base and then build up your forces to destroy all NOD units and structures in the area.
You’ll start the mission in the bottom left corner with some Infantry 2 Tanks and an APC. Send them out to the east until you find the GDI base. You’ll have to take out a Small Tank and a few other NOD units along the way. The GDI Base is on the other side of the Tiberium field across a small river.
Repair all of your buildings and then send out a small force of Grenadiers to take out the SAM Site just below the bridge in the center of the map. There are 4 SAM Sites on this map, and once they are all destroyed you’ll get the airstrike ability. The other SAM Sites are to the north east of the bridge, up on a ridge and the last two are to the south of the NOD Base.
If you run out of Tiberium there is another field to the north of your base. There is also a crate with Credits just to the north of the bridge and then east below the ridge.
Send a Light Scout into the NOD Base to find out where all of the buildings are located. You can now perform an airstrike on selected buildings such as the Hand of Nod. The NOD Construction Yard is on the south western side of the base. One easy way to incapacitate the base is to send an APC with a couple of Engineers and take over the Nod Construction Yard and Refinery.
Send in your army to finish off the NOD units and buildings to complete the mission.
Mission 5BW: Restoring Power (Germany East)
[Lower Left Route]
The objective for this mission is the same as the Upper Route but you’ll start on a different map. To find the base send your forces south and then east across the bridge. As in Mission 5AW repair all of your buildings and start training Grenadiers and building Light Scouts.
There is a crate with credits directly north of your base so go and pick it up when you’re low on case. Look for the tree by the Tiberium field that looks slightly different. Hidden behind it you’ll find the Crate.
There’s a SAM Site north of your base that you need to destroy and that’s probably where you’ll find the NOD Harvester as well. The NOD Base is located in the north-east corner of the map. Approach it from the south with Grenadiers and Light Scouts to draw out the NOD units.Then drive in with an APC with Engineers to take over the main buildings.
Once that’s done it shouldn’t take more than a Light Scouts to push through into the NOD Base and destroy all of their structures to complete the mission.
Mission 5A: Restoring Power (Ukraine West)
You start out with 2 Tanks, an APC and a group of Infantry in the bottom left corner of the map. Send your forces out to the east until you find the GDI Base. I like to keep the APC behind a little bit to make sure it’s in full health before later in the mission.
Repair your buildings and start producing more Light Scouts. This map is the same as 5AW except your base appears to be a little bit different. Regardless, send out a Light Scout to explore the map and find the NOD Base.
Bring the bulk of your forces outside the NOD base to distract them and then send in the APC with Engineers to take over as many buildings as you can. Make sure you grab the Construction Yard. The Refinery and unit production buildings are a bonus.
Move your forces in to wipe out the remining NOD units and buildings to complete the mission.
Mission 5b: Restoring Power (Ukraine East)
[Far Right Route]
For this mission you’ll start in the southeastern corner of the map. Move your forces, 2 Tanks, 2 APCS and Infantry, west to the bridge and then north until you find the GDI base.
Repair your buildings and start building up a force of Light Scouts just like the previous missions. Scout out the map until you find the NOD base in the middle eastern side of the map. Distract their forces with your own and send in the APC with Engineers to take over their Construction Yard and whatever else you can grab.
Once all NOD buildings and units have been destroyed the mission will be complete.
