Mission 17: Silo Scramble


Player CO: Kanbei
Enemy CO: Flak
Perfect speed limit: 18 days

This mission is not all that hard. Your main concern here will be rushing to
the farthest properties to prevent Flak from getting a foothold anywhere. At
the very least, you’ll want to capture the bases on the small outer islands
and fire the missiles on there before Flak can reach them. Also you have to
take over the middle island. If you can do all that, you can keep firing
missiles on everything Flak has and complete the mission quickly enough. If
you’re good, you can even stop Flak from capturing both the base somewhat
south of the northwestern small island and the base next to the northern port,
south of the bridge leading towards the center island. If you can achieve
this, you’re really in good shape, but in order to do that you’ll need to fire
three missiles on each of the two capturing infantries and then reach it with
a Tank or A-Air to finish it off. When you’ve successfully foiled Flak’s plans
at these parts using an army of Tanks combined with a barrage of missiles,
he’ll go down easily. Just keep rushing for the bases and the missiles.
