Ch 17a


  • Schwartzgrad
  • Arch Plaza
  • Cathedral

The final phase of Operation Cygnus is upon us

"The Centurion has successfully stormed the capital and is ready to prep the A2 bomb. Squad E's objective is to capture all enemy camps to secure an escape route. However, the enemy is mobilizing sooner than expected and are on the attack. We're already under fire, so be mindful of where to position your troops. It's a lot to handle, but this is the moment Squad E has been working for all this time."

Location: Schwartzgrad

Description: Capture all enemy camps to save the Centurion and secure an escape route. Detonate ragna-crates to destroy the archways around the city.

"Alright, you're cleared for deployment. Get out there and finish the fight."





  • This is the first mission where Ultimate Tanks are encountered.
  • Any key targets that are crushed by collapsing the archways will not be credited in the mission report.
