- Mission briefing

Liability Elimination is the tenth Soviet mission during its alternate history in Red Alert 1.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Paranoid of Red Army coups, a drunken Stalin persuades a reluctant Marshal Gradenko to sign execution orders for prominent Soviet officers. Presumably, Stalin did not question Gradenko why he abandoned a truck containing elements of the Iron Curtain as a way to test Gradenko's loyalty. Kukov and Nadia, who were spying on Gradenko and Stalin by camera, now tasked the Commander to destroy the truck, which by then had been salvaged by the Allies, since it now became a liability.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

The elimination of this truck containing the documents proved a success. Stalin conquers France with great effort despite Allied attempts to hold and defend the Parisian headquarters from being attacked. With the Allies in pockets of resistance, they still hold a convoy of trucks in their grasp and Kukov sends the Commander immediately to southeastern France in rescuing them and bring them to safety.
