Mission 25: Sea Fortress
Player CO: Eagle
Enemy CO: Hawke
Perfect speed limit: 10 days
This mission is pretty fun as well as pretty easy. You have a superior air
force at your command to take down Hawke’s air units and the minicannons. It’s
actually possible to finish this mission in a matter of three days, given
correct AI movement, good positioning of your units and a Lightning Strike.
There’s not really much to tell about this mission. Hawke will send some air
units your way, which you can easily get rid of. Keep your Bombers alive above
all else, as these are the units that will destroy the minicannons.
Try to pull off a Lightning Strike before Hawke can use Black Storm. In the
three day strategy, this is an essential part, but even if you’re not aiming
for that it’s good to try. You don’t want to kill off all the enemy B-Copters
for this just yet, but rather use your planes to create a wall around your
copters to protect them.
Use a Lightning Strike to punch through Hawke’s units and destroy the Black
Cannons. Watch out for the A-Air and the missiles and you’ll be ok.
