You begin the mission with 10 minutes to get the Scout Team to the new Gamma Base in the southwestern corner of the map. They're under attack by NEXUS units, so group them and send them south to the safety of the base. There, order the trucks to demolish the VTOL Rearming Pads, which are too close to enemy SAM sites to be useful. When the Scout Team arrives at the base, you'll acquire command of your original base. The Mission Timer also gives you 90 minutes to wipe out the NEXUS on the map.

NEXUS has built a base and two outposts in the area south of the LZ. The terrain makes attacks difficult and costly. Your best strategy is to use air power. First, have the VTOLs take out all SAM sites in the area. Begin with the outpost to the north. Also, take out the Cyborg Factory to reduce the number of enemy units you must face later. You lose several VTOLs during these attacks, so keep your VTOL Factories churning out replacements rapidly. Send no fewer than 10 VTOLs on attack runs against SAM sites.
Continue knocking out the SAMs at the other outpost and base. When you've reduced them to rubble, attack the defensive structures at both outposts. Take out the Rocket launchers and remaining Factories as well. After the VTOLs work over the enemy positions, your combat units can just roll in and mop up. Artifacts are located at each outpost there are also two at the base. Recover these and research them before finishing off the last NEXUS structure.
