As Norio Tomokawa and his task force attempt to join the counter-attack operations, an Epsilon blockade of the Panama Canal makes it impossible for them to reach the Virgin Islands. To answer the call for help, the heroes of the Allied Nations join forces together to deal with this crisis.
—Mission description

Operation: Convergence is an Allied Special Operations campaign mission.

Briefing

Two years after we've retreated to Australia to establish a stronghold against the Soviets, Yuri's Epsilon rose to power, attacked the east Australian coast with their ballistic submarines, and forced us into exile again. There is some good news, however, as we have managed to contact the London survivors, now moving through the Atlantic. Their presence on the ocean gives us an opportunity to attempt to reach one of the last remaining Pacific Front outposts near the U.S. During the early stages of the war with the Soviets, as the first joint venture between Kanegawa Industries and SteinsTech under what was to eventually become known as the FutureTech international research corporation, their scientists were focused on a weather manipulation project together with the Europeans, and even had a research site on Virgin Islands, formed after the U.S. downfall and the destruction of the Weather Crystals in Germany. This project has been finished, but the base has kept a low profile after the Mercury Uplink on Hawaii was destroyed in an attack by the Soviet fleet.

With increased activity of Yuri's forces in the Atlantic the situation has changed and the base has been discovered, so we must hurry. The fastest way for us to reach the Virgin Islands is to cross the Panama Canal, however, Yuri has already created a heavy blockade there. Luckily, most of the Chinese fleet has withdrawn from the Pacific, as the rumours of an uprising in their ranks appear to be true. Thus, with help from the heroes of the London task force, ready to deploy by Chronoshift, we must clear the passage for our cargos to move through.

Objective 1: Destroy all Artillery Bunkers.
Objective 2: Escort the Voyagers to the designated location.

Events

Secure the canal sides

With deciding the hero supporting this operation, the Allies cleared the left side of canal quickly and disintegrated several Tech Artillery Bunkers there by the hero alone. Subsequently, when the hero arrived at the right side of canal, additional reinforcements came to support, they had the rest of Artilleries on the right side destroyed aswell, also found and disintegrated two Coal Plants that power the defenses located in the canal entrance. With all Artilleries down, Pacific Front sent their Voyager Transports to the battlefield.

Escort the transports

With several Black Eagles scouting the canal, the Pacific Front commander got a fleet to escort the transports. Through commanding them to repel enemy interceptors from all directions, including eliminate the ambush forces from several water caves, aerial assaults and the naval unit blockade at the destination, sufficient amounts of transports have been reached the safe zone successfully.

Aftermath

Thanks to our combined efforts we will reach the Virgin Islands and later rendez-vous with the London survivors' task force in no time. We must now ready ourselves as Yuri's eyes will definitely be focused on the device, but together again we stand a chance.
—Battlefield report

The Pacific Front, which had been separated from the Allied Nations for a long time, finally rejoined at the unusual moment and integrated with few of entourages from PF among the London survivors. They soon start focus on the next thing: return to the Virgin Islands, protect the Weather Controller research base that are already exposed under Epsilon's eyes, complete the remaining development activities and drive all enemies out of this area.

Easter egg

  • Each corner of the map, except the bottom left one, has a Tiki Face. Each of them has their own element: Water, Wind and Electric. After freeing the ram, click the three big statues in the correct order and then click on the Tiki Faces to unleash their corresponding effects.
