You begin the mission with four MG Vipers and three trucks. Assemble the MG Vipers into Group 1 and send them to the narrow gap east of the Landing Zone (LZ). It's time to build a base. While one of the trucks builds an Oil Derrick on the Power Source to the east, the other two can begin building a Command Center and Power Generator. Your base will also need a Research Facility.
During the construction of the base, small groups of Scavengers try to attack it. Your MG Vipers will have no trouble defeating them. As soon as the Factory is completed, begin manufacturing some additional MG Vipers.

During the mission, you'll receive new orders to locate and destroy Scavenger outposts in the area. There are four outposts altogether (numbered 1 through 4 on the mission map), located north of your base. As your Factory is producing more MG Vipers, send Group 1 along the road to the east, and then north. The first outpost is just west of the road. Group 1 should stay back from the base and eliminate as many Scavengers as possible. When no more come out to attack, begin assaulting the outpost. Target the MG Towers first, then demolish the rest of the base. There is a Power Source here, so bring a truck up to build another Oil Derrick. You also find an Artifact. Once your units have recovered it, go to the Research menu and begin researching Hardened MG Bullets.
By now, you should have produced some more MG Vipers. Assign them to Group 2 and send both groups north up the road to the next outpost. It is also guarded by a couple MG Towers, so target them first. There are more Scavengers in this area, so clear them out before bringing a truck up to build a third Oil Derrick. You also find another Artifact. All attacks will come from the west, so position your MG Vipers in this area.
Continue producing MG Vipers. Bring up the new units to add to the two groups. When you have six in each group, send them west to the third outpost. While one group attacks from the northeast, use the other to attack from the southeast. Once the outpost is destroyed, gather any Artifacts you discover.
The fourth and final outpost is located south of the third. It's heavily defended by both MG Towers, and Flame Towers. There are also a lot of Scavengers around. Bring up some reinforcements and let the Scavengers come out to you first. Also, use this time to complete all the research and produce more units. During this mission, you'll find Flamer Technology. Go to the Design menu and create a Flamer on a Viper chassis. Build some of these and send them to the front. Once this is completed, begin your assault. Take out all the Towers before eliminating the base. Recover the Artifact and any barrels you see lying around. These barrels add to your power supply.
