Tanya and Natasha overlooking the city
Western tip of the Mediterranean Sea, Spain
Gibraltar is a city at the southern tip of Iberia. It is strategically important due to the narrow trait of Gibraltar which separated Europe from North Africa, and linked the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. It is administered by the United Kingdom. An Allied naval base is located here.
During the War of the Three Powers, Gibraltar was one of the main targets for the Empire of the Rising Sun in its campaign to take control of the Atlantic. Since both the Soviets and the Allies were affected by the Empire's naval blockade, the two powers declared a ceasefire and joined forces to oust the Imperial Navy from the city.
The Battle of Gibraltar[edit | edit source]
The Allied agent Tanya and the Soviet sniper Natasha, under the command of an Allied Commander and Nikolai Moskvin, respectively, entered the city by water and destroyed many vital Imperial facilities in the city, clearing the way for MCV reinforcements.
A small fleet of Allied Assault Destroyers and Soviet Akula submarines were held captive by the Imperial forces, but the joint Allied and Soviet strike team freed the captured ships and mounted a full scale assault on the main Imperial base, commanded by Kenji Tenzai, who was later reinforced by Naomi Shirada's naval forces. However, the Allied and Soviet forces eventually emerged victorious, reclaiming Gibraltar and removing the Empire's influence in the area.
