GDI 7: Destroy the Airstrip
Mission 7: Destroy the Airstrip
Unfortunately you didn’t get your orders right in the last mission. You were supposed to destroy the NOD Base. Now you’ll need to go back and finish it off. Whatever building you destroyed in the last mission will still be missing for this mission.
As soon as you land on shore you’ll be attacked by Flamethrowers and NOD Buggies. Try to keep your Infantry separated so that don’t all immediately get flamed to death. You’ll soon get 2 Tanks and then your MCV.
Send your MCV a little way to the north, nearer to the Tiberium field and start building your base. You won’t have long before the attacks start coming so build a Guard Tower to the north and one to the south-east of your base.
Soon the Tiberium just to the north of your base will run out. There is a larger Tiberium field further to the north but it’s less protected and will face constant streams of NOD Rocket Infantry. To combat this place 3 or 4 Light Scouts on the eastern edge of the Tiberium field to mow down any infantry. NOD have also placed a couple of Rocket Infantry on the north western corner of the field so make sure you deal with them before sending in your Harvesters.
Build a second Refinery as far to the north as you can to speed up the harvesting of Tiberium. Build up your forces and place them in the center of the map. The NOD Base is to the east and a little bit north. It’s protected by three Turrets and a bunch of Infantry guarding the entrance.
Once the Turrets have been cleared send in a Light Scout to take a look at the NOD Base. You’ll be able to send in an APC with Engineers through the southern entrance. Place it between the Construction Yard and the Refinery so you can easily capture both of them.
With that done it’s just a matter of sending in your Tanks and Light Scouts to finish off the remaining NOD forces and buildings. Once all enemy units and buildings have been destroyed the mission will be complete.
