Almost full Soviet arsenal

Almost full European Allied arsenal
Chronosphere (Red Alert 1)

We have learned the location of the Chronosphere weapon, and we want to capture it.

The Allies have boobytrapped the Chronosphere to explode if approached. Capturing the tech centers BEFORE taking the Chronosphere may allow you to defuse any traps. Use extreme caution.

We have another chance to capture the Chronosphere. Take out the Radar Domes to cut the link between them and the Chronosphere. Then capture it!

Capture the control centers were both the thirteenth and fourteenth missions during an alternate history of Red Alert 1 in the Soviet campaign. It seems that Allied Forces were on the run and Stalin plans to capture the Chronosphere in Switzerland.

Background[edit | edit source]

Proving useful to the wonderful Soviet Commander after an attack on Allied naval forces, Stalin ordered his Commander who now takes up as Supreme Commander of the Red Army after Gradenko's death and his next mission proves to be on his next target: the Allied Chronosphere. Having placed a tracking device on Einstein before his escape, the Soviets located the Chronosphere somewhere in Switzerland. However Kukov advised the commander to capture the three control centers to prevent the destruction of the Allied Superweapon.

Part Two[edit | edit source]

When the Chronosphere blew up in Switzerland after all three tech centers were captured, the Soviets won that mission and Einstein was removed by himself from the Soviet firing squad as Allied coordinates made by Georgi Kukov came through, saying that the Allies have one weapon in either Spain (RA Universe) or Portugal. If the player chooses one, they will be sent to that location. Stalin orders the Soviet Commander to prepare a strike team with the weapon's schedule not to be lost forever and Kukov believes that if one detection is true, the Chronosphere is lost and someone will be at fault to do it.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • Capture some control centers leading to the Allied Superweapon.
  • Destroy all Allied forces in the area around the control centers and also, at the Chronosphere.
  • Capture the Chronosphere before it's too late with an Engineer quickly.

Aftermath/Consequences[edit | edit source]

Although the Soviet Commander captured the Chronosphere, it blew up in front of him. It turned out that there was a fourth control center that Kukov did not inform the Commander of before his departure. In anger and sparing the player, Stalin snapped Kukov's neck and immediately ordered the Commander to invade England as the last Allied nation.
