- Mission briefing

Sunk Costs is the eleventh mission of the Soviet campaign for Red Alert.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

The mission takes place on two parts. The Soviet forces either choose the north to attack Great Britain or the south to destroy the Allied naval forces and take over the Mediterranean. Before Kukov arrived, Nadia gave the ruthless Gradenko some tea to drink in Stalin's briefing room. The Soviet Marshal was poisoned to death by the NKVD head as he laid dead on the table and Kukov later came in and showed Nadia the weapon that the Allies are working on.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

The Allied navy was destroyed in fierce fighting against Soviet Submarine columns in a matter of minutes. Stalin congratulated the Commander over the destruction of Allied naval forces, but it turned into a Soviet victory. Some control centers had to be captured next to prevent Allied soldiers from reaching Moscow and Russia in a Chronosphere, made by German professor Albert Einstein.
