|Fog of War||No|
[In this mission, you can freely select which of the three main OS COs you want to deploy. I'll be using Sami on this one.]
<CO Select> : At last! The enemy stronghold! Can we win back our country?
Flak: They've come at last... I'll win it all with this factory.
??? You look like you're having a rough time, Flak.
Flak: Huh? What rock did you crawl out from under, Adder?
Adder: Heh heh heh... I wanted to see the military strength of this world myself.
Flak: Should you be here? I thought you were supposed to be invading Yellow Comet?
Adder: Leave off, Flak. You'd do well not to waste your energy on my affairs. Look! The natives are knocking on your doorstep... and they look restless.
Flak: Grrr... I won't lose.
Adder: "Won't"? Heh heh heh... You mustn't lose, Flak. That's closer to the truth.
Adder: I'm looking forward to your performance. Heh heh heh...
Andy: Whoa! What in the world is that?!?
Sami: It seems to be some sort of an installation. What are they planning now?
Nell: I believe they call it a factory. This is the center of all the damage inflicted upon our forces.
Max: So there's no doubt that it's the key to the entire Black Hole invasion!
Nell: Yes, but... There's still so much we don't know. I've got a spy on the inside, so I'll let you know if I hear anything. In the meanwhile, let's launch some sorties and see the enemy's response.
Sami: Yes, ma'am!
Black Hole / Day 1
Flak: That unit's ready, right? Open the factory gate!
BHSldier: Yes, sir.
Orange Star / Day 2
Sami: That's no base, and yet an enemy unit just came out of it. What's going on?
Nell: So that's it... I understand!
Max: What is it, Nell? Is everything OK?
Nell: No, it isn't, Max. Our army's not the only thing being attacked here. The enemy's been stealing weapons, money, and other materials, too! Somehow, they transport everything here to this factory, then it all goes into that pipe and winds up... somewhere else.
Sami: Black Hole goons... They're even more dangerous than we originally thought.
Andy: Don't worry! As long as we're in this together, there's no way we can lose!
Nell: You're right, Andy. You've all made it this far. I know you'll emerge victorious.
Orange Star / Day 3
Nell: I've got new intel, troops. I don't know what that factory's made of, but I do know that we can't damage it with the weapons we have here.
Max: Are you serious? Well then, how are we gonna put it out of business?
Nell: That's the problem at hand. That long pipe is also made of the same impervious substance. But take a look over there.
Sami: It looks like two separate pieces of pipe are connected there...
Nell: Right. The two pieces appear to be bolted together.
Sami: Maybe Md tanks or bombers could blast that seam apart...
Nell: Yes, and maybe by breaking the pipe, we can halt their troop production. First, we should gain control of that airport in the center of the map. That should give us an advantage. Next, we need to make good use of your CO Powers... Just so you know, your Power Meter fills faster when you're attacked. It does build up for the attacker, too, so firing first is never a mistake!
Andy: OK! Now that that's clear, I'm using my CO Power as often as I can!
Black Hole / Day 3
BHSldier: Lord Flak, it appears that the foe has discovered the pipe's weak point.
Flak: Grrr... That section may be weak, but it's still not easy to destroy. Even so, if they manage to damage the pipe and halt troop production, we're in deep trouble. Hit 'em now, before they're ready! Smash 'em!
BHSldier: Yes, sir!
[After you have destroyed the pipe seam:]
Sami: We did it! There'll be no more units coming from that factory!
Flak: Aarrrgh! Nooooooo!
Max: Give it up, Flak! You lose!
Flak: My invasion of Orange Star may have failed, but I'm not alone. There are other Black Hole COs, with more armies.
Max: What are you saying? Are Yellow Comet and Blue Moon under attack?
Flak: Hah! You'll find out soon enough. They'll be coming for you next! I'm gone.
Max: Hey! We're not done with you!... He got away again! We can't ignore his warning, can we? We've gotta contact the other armies.
Nell: Yes. You're right. Let's ready reinforcements. In truth, though, our own Orange Star Army is in pretty ragged shape. If that battle had gone on much longer, materials and morale might have dropped to dangerous levels. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of your aid! Nice work!
Sami: It's all due to your instruction, Nell.
Nell: No, it was all of you. You made the decisions and performed the deeds.
Andy: C'mon! Let's hurry and check on the other countries!
Sami: Yeah! Let's get busy and drive those Black Hole thugs off the planet!
Max: You said it! We'll knock the stuffing out of 'em, then head home for a victory feast!
