A L P H A 6: E N E M Y A T T A C K
D E F E N D T H E B A S E
This mission is quite large. You have a lot of enemies to kill. The New Paradigm is establishing a large base to the east of your base. Hopefully you were able to repair most or all of your units before the end of the last mission. If not, do so now. Send all of your undamaged units to the gap east of your base. They quickly come in contact with a New Paradigm attack force. Defeat the force and then press on toward the southern map edge. While this is taking place, begin producing new units. Form three groups of 10 combat units and one group of Mortars with a Sensor unit. Keep one group back to defend the base.
The enemy has probably attacked your Oil Derrick in the south. Send one group to take it back and bring a truck down to rebuild the Derrick if it was destroyed. Position your groups at the mouth of the canyon leading to the east. This is where the enemy must advance to get to your base. By setting up a forward defense here, your base remains safe. There are numerous technologies to research during this mission. It's a good idea to construct a second Research Facility to increase your studies. Some of the technologies that will be helpful are the Factory upgrades, the Medium Cannon, and the Cobra Medium Body.

Send a single, fast unit down the canyon to locate the enemy. Several enemy units will come after it. Bring it back and let the combat groups clear the canyon. Then bring the Sensor unit forward to target defensive structures such as Bunkers and Towers for the Mortar group. Assign one of the combat groups to defend the Sensor unit. This narrow pass can be deadly, so take it slowly and methodically. Once you clear it, the path opens up so you can deploy more units for the advance.
Position your combat groups to protect the Mortar group as it slowly clears a path to the east of all enemy structures. There are numerous MG Towers and bunkers as well as Flame Towers and Rocket Pits waiting to attack your forces. After you have advanced all the way to the southeast, it's time to check your status. Most of your groups will have several casualties. Hopefully, most made it back to your base and the Repair Facility. Check at the base and bring the repaired units back up to the front to restore the groups' strength.
Use your Mortars to bombard the defenses a bit to the north, including the Tank Traps. Keep your combat groups back and out of the way except when they must defend your Sensor units. Destroy everything here and recover any Artifacts. If possible, form a fourth combat group and send all four toward the Paradigm LZ in the northeast. After you locate defensive structures, hold and bring up the Mortar groups. Bombard the defenses, then rush all four groups toward the LZ. Just north of the LZ is a Power Generator that must be destroyed as well. With the LZ in your control, the enemy can't bring in new units to this point. As you're taking the LZ, you also should assault the hilltop outpost west of the LZ. It has a lot of defenses, so use the Mortars to bring the walls down. This plateau, once captured, will serve as a staging area for the next advance.
By this time, the New Paradigm forces are boxed in. Send a combat group and a Mortar group north to take out the Scavenger outpost near the map edge. Then use all your Mortars to begin taking out the defenses north of the main base in the center. After the defenses are down, rush a group into the base to destroy all the structures, including the objective, and recover any Artifacts. The second LZ is located further south. Wipe it out to complete the mission.
