—Mission description

Operation: Mind Over Matter is the seventh Epsilon cooperative mission.

Briefing

The Soviets took a working Psychic Amplifier from us, but we have means of negating its effects with our Psychic Beacons deployed across the United States. Two of our Beacons are under attack, one in Boston and one here, in Detroit. The Beacon in Boston has been captured by Allied rebels, but this one is still ours. Before we deal with the other one, you must repel the Confederation's attack here. The Soviets have deployed two outposts in the northern part of the city. Two Iron Curtain devices are making things difficult for us. Get rid of them.

Objective 1: Destroy the Iron Curtain Devices.

Objective 2: Protect the Psychic Beacon.

Objective 3: Kill the Soviet Commander.

Events

Focusing on the Psychic Beacon

After the construction of the bases, the intelligence raised: First, about the two Psychic Beacons of Epsilon in the northeastern United States, the one in Boston was captured by the US Remnants, but the one in Detroit remained intact; second, the largest threat was two Iron Curtain Devices, which must be destroyed.

The proselytes assembled some troops, including the infantry reinforcements that were dispatched soon, near the Psychic Beacon, and filled the gap of the Wall when they learned that the General would send Arsonists to secretly destroy the Psychic Beacon.

At the same time, the proselytes also frequently noticed the rear of the bases to prevent the Soviets from paradropping infantry there, or using the Motor Ambush.

Choose to destroy

Then the proselytes got the position of the mind-controlled Americans' base and several Nuclear Reactors. They found a large number of barrrels in one of the Soviet bases, many of which were concentrated around the Palace - the Palace provided the General with the right to build heavy units of the Russian army. They decided to launch Risen Inferno next to the Palace, a Tech Artillery Bunker hit the barrel next to the Inferno Tower and blew up the Palace.

After assembling sufficient forces, the proselytes launched a two-way attack on the Soviet base and preferred to destroy two Iron Curtain Devices.

When Iron Curtain Devices was destroyed, even if the Soviets lost control of this city, their mission was not completed: Yuri said that a VIP of the Soviet army was nearby.

"He's escaping!"

The General, who survived the attack on Stalington from Epsilon is preparing to board Borillo to escape.

The proselytes also confirmed that this was the General who escaped from Stalington and immediately found his hiding place: he was on the southeast side, on the other side of the river, when he was preparing to board a Borillo run and try to command the surviving forces to protect him.

They could only use Invaders to destroy the Borillo, but when Invaders launched attack, a large number of Soviet infantry appeared around them and covered the General.

In the end, both proselytes lost the battlefield control, Invaders was also shot down by a large number of Flak Troopers, and the General eventually escaped under the guard of Foxtrots and Tesla Cruisers.

Aftermath

Although successful in defending Detroit's Psychic Beacon, PsiCorps lost the opportunity to assassinate their former comrade-commander. Chicago's Psychic Amplifier remained in the hands of the Soviets, placing Epsilon forces around the Great Lakes region fell into disarray. However, Epsilon was able to ascertain the location of the Soviet General's next mission, which was in Singapore.

Other news soon came in from east, as a Psychic Beacon in Boston had fallen into the hands of the local American remnants, along with an outpost containing Yuri's super weapon program. To make matters even worse, the Americans seemed to have got chrono reinforcements from Europeans.....
