I defeat the enemy with two assaults, for each of which I patiently
build units. Also, trucks drive over scavengers and pick up oil barrels.
I begin with an HQ, followed by a factory.
Then, I instantly recycle a truck and start building an MG tank.
The remaining trucks build a power generator and an oil derrick, which
triggers the scavengers. The trucks kill them, suffering little damage.
As soon as 8 MGs have been built, the first assault begins.
The objective is to take the first enemy base and two oil barrels.
The trucks drive up the road, killing scavengers and seizing an oil drum
in a valley to the north-east. Meanwhile, the MGs drive into the first
enemy base to quickly get the oil barrel therein and afterwards destroy
everything in the base.
The trucks drive back into the occupied base and build its oil derrick
to speed up production.
Destroying that base has triggered a scavenger factory to the north.
While its savages rush south in small groups, the MGs hold their ground
and defeat them.
Once 14 MGs are available, they carefully destroy the base to the north.
To the east of that base are two valleys full of enemies, which must be
cleared. Ideally, the southern valley should be attacked first, because
it contains an oil drum which should be quickly seized by a truck. Then,
the northern valley should be cleared.
MGs should then move to destroy the next base, located in the west. Care
should be taken to minimize exposure to enemy fire by good positioning.
Obviously, reinforcements should be sent to the front as soon as they
become available. This can be important if a few scavengers slip through
our lines during the attack on the twin valleys and the western base.
Trucks should move back to the defeated base to build its oil derrick,
the third one for the generator. Any remaining MGs should seize the
final base, keeping their distance from its flamer towers to destroy
them without needless casualties.
In this example, it took me 17:25 minutes to complete the mission.
I expect that good players will find find better strategies to win.
