There is a special cargo that needs to be transported to a nearby Soviet base in the northeast. Make sure the trucks reach their destination intact. Along the way, there is a bridge which the Allies may have destroyed. If so, use the Naval options at your disposal. Our attack subs will make short work of any Allied boats you discover.
- Mission briefing

Bridge over the River Grotzny is one of the route for the sixth Soviet mission in Red Alert 1.

Background[edit | edit source]

Following the capture of Khalkis Island near Greece, Stavros was affected by this and caused a mournful retreat to Eastern Europe. A bridge in Yugoslavia must be crossed to win overall successes on the continent. Stalin sends his personalized Commander to take the bridge, not realizing that Stavros ordered a blow-out on the bridge to prevent further consequences.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

With the bridge to cross first, Stalin was proud of his new Commander, who received a promotion. The Allies ran from the battle, but were defeated at a second bridge which the Soviets had a convoy to which they escaped from Allied forces, attempting to stop them.
