The Russians receive an offer from the Chinese government to combine their forces in the fight against Yuri's army in Eurasia as an attempt to reestablish good relations between the countries. Negotiations begin in Singapore, but the PsiCorps forces lurk nearby.
—Mission description

Operation: Juggernaut is the fifth Soviet Act Two campaign mission.

Briefing

What a twist of fate this is, Comrade. Your falling out with the High Command that has resulted with you in America, rather than on one of its seats, might just have saved your life. Now you are part of what's left of our chain of command, and desperate times call for desperate measures. The Amplifier has given us time to think and regroup, but with Romanov dead, our forces suffering major losses almost everywhere, and Yuri's forces controlling as much as they do, we have no choice but to push aside past transgressions and reform the alliance with the Chinese, who remain the least affected by Yuri's actions thus far. With us at a disadvantage, even if temporarily, we must put all the differences behind us to deal with an enemy that threatens us all.

As such, after preliminary talks with the Chinese, we have determined that we shall hold our negotiations in the neutral area of Singapore. In order to secure the alliance, we have released several Chinese POWs and shared some of our intel and tech, in hopes of receiving some of theirs. You, Comrade, will be placed in charge of the defense of the Congress of Singapore. It is regrettable that we have to ask the Chinese for favors like this, but it is necessary to ensure our survival. Intel reports that Yuri's forces are heading to Singapore as we speak. Your MCV will be deployed just outside the Congress of Singapore itself, while the Chinese set up a large blockade at all points of access into the city. Reinforcements will be en route, with Morales, Volkov and Chitzkoi following not long after. Do what must be done to protect the Congress!

Objective 1: Build a base and prepare for the defense.

Objective 2: Protect the Congress of Singapore.

Events

Preparing the defense

Transmission complete.
—Soviet EVA as the entire battlefield is revealed

With the help of the Chinese, they began fortifying their positions around the congress. The Chinese Forces had already made defensive positions in the outlying parts of the city and key routes that would likely be taken by Yuri's forces. The Soviet General quickly inspected the surrounding fortifications for weak spots and organized everything to ensure that the meeting would be a success.

Engineers were dispatched to secure important structures to help the defense as well. Conscripts and Flak Troopers fortified as many buildings as they could in the urban areas around the Congress, providing a sturdy (albeit temporary) defense. During that time, the Chinese had also sent satellite data to the Soviet General's HQ, allowing him to see the whole city, and they even sent reinforcements in from the north. Nevertheless, they had less than 20 minutes to prepare before a massive Epsilon Army arrived.

Repelling the onslaught

Yuri's army beginning the invasion

Soon the siren rang in the whole city, Yuri's forces and the mind-controlled Russians had arrived from the South by naval and aerial assault. Civilians panicked as Yuri had already planted infiltration forces inside and was attacking from the urban areas. The Chinese informed the General that they'll deploy more Nuwa Cannons in the city, giving the command to him in ensuring the defense remains firm.

In mere moments, the Chinese Outpost in the outlying parts of the city were overrun as Invaders began to appear and move closer towards the Congress, but they were swiftly taken down by squads of Wolfhound Gunships. At same time, the Chinese had deployed Sentinels to the Congress as well as authorizing the Soviet General to build them. They also provided the schematics to the Hammer Defense system - the advanced base defense would make short work out of Epsilon's lightly armored vehicles.

Drillers had began to appear underneath the city, sending in enemy reinforcements. Masterminds were also deployed in their attempt to shatter the Soviet forces defending the city. However, the sheer number of the Russian and Chinese defenders were simply too much for them to handle. The Epsilon Army was persistent though, and they responded in kind by sending even more forces at the defense lines, hoping to overwhelm the garrison with their sheer numbers.

At the heart of the battle, Yuri began deploying mind-controlled Kirov Airships in the south-east. At the same time, the Iron Guard were deployed in hotspots around the defensive line surrounding the congress, and the Chinese announced that they'll be sending armored forces into the city to help the General; along with it, the Latins also sent their Catastrophe Tank to support the Desolators. Morales and his taskforce had appeared as well, a token of thanks for saving him before. The Russian heroes Volkov and Chitzkoi arrived shortly after, providing some much-needed relief to the faltering defenses.

Nevertheless, the Chinese defense line began to shatter as more Wolfhounds appeared to reinforce the Congress. With the Chinese positions overrun, it was now up to the Russians to hold the line until reinforcements arrived in Singapore. Yuri's Magnetrons had appeared from the sea as well to support his army constantly pouring into the city, continuously sending everything at the Soviets.

Needless to say, the Soviets fought on with unrelenting fervor, smashing every offensive that the Epsilon directed towards the Congress. Though losses were immeasurable, the General was quick to order immediate replacements for his fallen troops and units - if the Congress fell, all chances of an alliance will be for naught, and with the majority of the Soviet leadership present inside, it would also mean the end of any resistance against Epsilon's ever-growing influence across the globe.

After what seemed like an eternity for the General, the fight for the Soviets was over once the Chinese reinforcements arrived in the area - the cavalry proceeded to mop up the remaining Epsilon forces, and the invaders had no choice but to withdraw... for now.

Aftermath

I am sorry to ruin your recent victory, Comrade, but despite your best efforts we have failed to reach an agreement with the Chinese due to their ridiculous demands. To make matters worse, Reznov and Krukov have found out something worrisome about China.
—Battlefield report

Despite everything the Epsilon Army threw at them, the Chinese reinforcements had arrived, just in time, to relieve the sturdy Soviet defense of the Congress. Unfortunately for the Soviet General, the news was grim. The meeting ended in failure because they could not reach an agreement with the Chinese. He also received word that the Chicago Psychic Amplifer had finally been overrun. When the Soviets received some worrisome intelligence from Reznov and Krukov, the General was sent to the Xinjiang region to find out why the Chinese were unwilling to negotiate.

  • On the west side of the city, there's a cannon with two piles of cannonballs next to it. If the player sends a unit close to the cannon, a laugh taunt can be heard. A veterancy crate will spawn next to the cannon while this message is played:
What? Do you think this cannon could send Yuri's warships to hell?

Behind the scenes

Our victory against Yuri's assault in Singapore already proves the strength of our rebuilt Comintern with the Chinese. With our combined might we will crush Yuri's rebellion and take back our homeland. The traitor's days are now numbered.
—Old battlefield report
