Valentine Pocket

After suffering their first defeat at Damah, APC forces withdraw through the narrow canyon. 501st must protect retreating forces until evacuation is complete. Be mindful of muddy terrain as you engage PEU attack helicopters and AWGSs.


Ice Crystal
Location: Vostochnaha Litsa, Russia

Destroyed during battle of Novosibirsk, 502nd Company is rebuilt and sent to rescue APC survivors of a plane crash near Kola Peninsula. 502nd must protect the rescue helicopter as it collects the survivors and transports them to a nearby Chinese submarine. Both the helicopter and submarine must be protected at all costs.


Angel Present
Location: Jartai, China

PEU forces capture a cache of nuclear weapons from a Chinese missile silo near Mongolian border and 502nd has been tasked with recovering the deadly stockpile. PEU forces has dug in behind a well protected line. 502nd must lead the attack and open a path through enemy lines allowing allied forces to move in and recover the warheads.


Counter Attack
Location: Tan Cheng, China

With AFTA forces declaring war on both PEU and APC, massive number of enemy units pour into China. 504th, rebuilt second time, launches a surprise attack against AFTA controlled air base in the South China Sea to prevent AFTA forces to launch airborne attacks and allow allies to withdraw safely. Engage and destroy three C-17 transport planes defended by US 101st Airborne division and avenge the Linyungang.


Hell's Highway
Location: Jinan, China

With the war situation is detoriating, Japanese Foreign Legion begins a fighting retreat towards the coast, hoping to return to Japan. 504th must protect the allied forces as they cross the Yellow River. Massive number of AFTA forces will swarm the battered Japanese forces. Expect heavy casualities.


Location: Pai-Ling Miao, China

War is over. Vastly outnumbered and completely surrounded, 504th Company agrees to surrender. However, one of the ace pilots of the unit, a German pilot named Michael "Black Tulip" Hartmann refuses to surrender and challenges the 504th's best pilot (you) to a 1-on-1 fight. Hartmann will be using a Jagdpanther, Germany's best AWGS against your HIGH-MACS. Pacify him before he re-ignites the war and find out who is the ace of the aces.


During the mission briefings, a woman nicknamed "Berlin Lily" can be heard talking in the background. Obviously named after infamous Tokyo Rose, this half-Japanese and half-German DJ broadcasts propaganda to Japanese troops. According to the official lore, despite being an enemy propaganda asset, she is quite popular among Japanese soldiers in the Europe and Asia.
