This mission again has a 60-minute time limit. Load a truck, a couple of AA units, and seven heavy combat units aboard the transport and send it to the LZ. Once landed, construct a Repair Facility and position the AA units north of the LZ to defend against Collective VTOL raids. Immediately call in for reinforcements of heavy combat units. The Collective will send a group of Cyborgs at you from the west and heavier units from the north. Repel both of these attacks and things should cool down for a bit.

Bring in a VTOL group and a bombardment group. Send one of your combat groups north until they come in contact with enemy defenses. Then bring the bombardment group forward to begin its attack. Send the VTOLs into the middle of this enemy base to take out the VTOL Rearming Pads and the Factory, before attacking the defensive structures. When the base is nearly destroyed, send a combat group in to mop up and recover the Artifact.
The Collective has a small outpost in the center. Attack it with the bombardment group while your VTOLs begin assaulting the main Collective base north of this outpost. Take out the defenses that can attack ground units first so the combat groups can come help destroy the main base. Recover the Artifact and begin researching it immediately.
Once the main base is destroyed, all that remains are a few defensive structures. Use the VTOLs and the bombardment group to eradicate the last Collective presence in the area. Then bring all of your units back to the LZ to end the mission.
