Player CO: Sonja
Enemy CO: Lash
Perfect speed limit: 9 days
This mission is pretty fun and easy to complete. Lash needs to move one unit on your HQ in order to win the mission. All you have to do to make sure that that does not happen is to move one of your MD Tanks on it and keep it there at all times. The other one should be placed on a nearby city and attack from there. Move the Artillery and Rockets in the center field into the forests just southwest and southeast respectively. Lash will have trouble locating them there while you will have no trouble shooting things.
Positioning of the units behind the mountain ranges is pretty straightforward. Have Mechs move on the mountains for vision, but in such a way that they can't be hit directly. The rest should be placed as close to the mountains as possible so they can strike the farthest. If Lash sends Mechs over the mountains, take those out first. The Neotanks have the next highest priority, as they can bring down the MD Tanks while at full HP. Artillery or Rockets threatening to take out any indirects or Mechs also should be taken care of immediately. After that, the only possible threat comes from the enemy MD Tanks, but they are so slow that they can be picked off by your indirects pretty easily. Lash won't attack your MD Tanks with anything else, so all other units are just cannon fodder for your indirects. Low HP Neotanks and hurt MD Tanks also won't attack them.
Once the scary units are dealt with, have the MD Tank on the city and the Mechs move in to sweep the area of surviving units and complete the mission in 9 or 10 days.
