Hard Campaign Guide
Mission 9: Toy Box
Player CO: Olaf
Enemy CO: Lash
Perfect speed limit: 27 days
This mission is pretty easy to win, but annoying to win quickly. There are lots of choke points on this map and annoying locations of bases, making advancing with your units to be quite difficult. The biggest choke point on this map is just north of the eastern neutral base (the one surrounded by mountains on the north, west and south sides). You really need to hold this choke point to stop Lash from advancing. All of the territory behind this choke is then up for grabs. Capture every city in this territory and the neutral base near the choke to build up an advantage in income. Build a sizeable army of tanks and artillery first to hold the choke and later to press through. If you can, try to use your artillery to stop Lash from capturing the neutral base west of the one near the choke. When you receive enough income, build an army of MD Tanks, as they're best suited to take out Lash's units when you have little room to maneuver. Don't forget to take the Lab Map from the city three spaces west of the neutral port. This battle probably will take a good amount of days, but the speed requirement isn't really that strict. As this map prevents any quick advances from both sides, don't bother with Blizzard and stick with Winter Fury to actually do some damage to Lash's units.
