Red Alert Walkthrough: Soviet 13
The keys to this mission are setting up your base defenses, keeping the economy rolling, and taking out the allied power units. You start in the top center of the board; deploy your base anywhere nearby and get started. There will be ore to your right and to your left, and there are three entrances to your base area. The bad guys will come up from the southeast and southwest and they'll come across from the northwest. Build your base out so you can protect these areas with tesla coils and mammoth tanks.
Once you have a stable base, you can then build up some attack forces. Build a sub base in the northeast, and send some subs to keep that side of the board 'clean'. Once you've taken out all their ships and their base, they'll stop coming at you from that side.
Get your air power going, groups of 4-6 MIGs are good for taking out anything that you need to go after. Keep another group or two of 3-4 YAKs for taking out infantry units. There's a bridge in the southeast quadrant that allows the allies access to a field of ore; have your MIGs take this bridge out. If you take out the bridge in the NW as well, there will only be a long land bridge up the middle across which they can send units at you. Fortify your end of this land strip and use air power and send things by transport to complete the mission.
A note from a friend, Shawn O'Malley:
I found a way to finish the mission without following the mission objectives. If you destroy every allied unit and structure and can defend the cronosphere from being destroied by the allies you will get the mission accomplished message. Note that I never captured the cronosphere only defended it from the allies, may or may not work if you capture it. Thanks for responding to my request & good luck with the mission.
