E S T A B L I S H A N L Z
This away mission requires several VTOLs as well as some heavy ground units. You have only 60 minutes to complete this mission. To begin with, load a truck and nine combat units aboard the transport and send it on its way. Once at the LZ, secure it by fighting off an attack from the east by a group of Cyborgs while the truck constructs a Repair Facility and as many VTOL Rearming Pads as you have VTOL units. Immediately bring in a second group of heavy combat units and prepare for an attack from the north. Once the Cyborgs have been defeated, you'll only be attacked by units coming across the crater north of the LZ. On the third and fourth load of reinforcements, bring VTOLs, and then just land units in following loads.

Once your VTOLs arrive, organize them into two or three groups. Immediately target the Factories in the northwest. The sooner you knock these out, the fewer enemy units you face later. Once all three are destroyed, order one group to attack the Reactor structures in the main base while the other group or groups take out the hardpoints and defenses to the west of the base. Doing so makes it easier for your ground force to advance.

There are a lot of enemy defenses, so bring in a group of Bunker Busters. Send this group along with a couple groups of heavy combat units to begin advancing up the road to the base. Take your time and don't rush the assault. If two or more hardpoints can fire on your ground forces, back off and let the VTOLs do their job. The only purpose of the ground force is to get into the base, recover the Artifacts, and mop up any remaining structures. Along the way, they'll have to fight off the surviving enemy units. Don't worry about the defenses to the south. They'll have little effect on your attack. Once the main base is destroyed and the Artifacts recovered, you'll be ordered to return to the LZ, where the mission ends.
