    2. ABOUT
    This is the second FAQ I ever wrote. This FAQ is for the 
    Red Alert expansion, Counter Strike. There is a little 
    secret in this game that unlocks a whole new different
    campaign. It is a very cool campaign and I think the 
    developers threw it in just for fun. This FAQ contains 
    Spoilers so read at your own risk!

    4. STORY
    One of the allied bases suddenly 
    lost contact. Right before it did 
    they sent a message about giant ants.
    They told you to investigate and to 
    find out what happened at report 
    what had happened. Something was there...
    It came from Red Alert.
    (Note: To access the ANT missions, hold SHIFT and click
    the top right speaker on the Red Alert title screen.)
    Stage 1
    You start out with 5 soldiers and a Ranger. If you wish, 
    you can explore the area with your units. When you find your
    base (which is Northeast of where you are), a time limit of
    30 min will begin. Immediately fix your base up and produce 
    some Rangers to defend your base. When the swarms of ants 
    come, they will attack your Ore Truck and your base. Use your
    trusty Rangers and get rid of them. Keep some Rangers at the
    ore fields and put the on guard mode, just in case some 
    ants come. After 30 minutes, some tanks and a MCV will arrive.
    Just wait a little and mission will be accomplished.
    Stage 2
    Guide your MCV to your base and escort it with the tanks for defense.
    Set up your Construction Yard and quickly build some more Camo Pill
    Boxes for protection. Build all the usual. Then build many Tanks and
    Rangers. Build some APC's now you are ready. Since you have to evacuate
    two villages with civilians to the far northwestern island, you just
    need to send your little army to the far northeastern part of the map.
    See that village? As soon as you cross the bridge with your little army,
    blow it up with force fire from the tanks. Quickly load the civilians
    into the APC's and send them back to base for now. Take your tanks back
    to the base and build more APC's if needed. Locate the village that is 
    at the east and do the same to what you did to the other village. Then 
    build some more tanks and you'll find many ants moving out of the two 
    bridge island. Eliminate the bridges with your tanks and destroy any 
    remaining wandering ants. Move your transport and drive the APC's to
    the Transport and load them. Move the Transport to the other island.  
    Unload the APC's. Mission Accomplished.
    Stage 3
    You will start out with an MCV and some units. Deploy your MCV and build
    the usual. In a little while some civilian/scientists will come to help 
    you. Kill all the ants near your base and quickly send a civilian to gas
    the nest. Then put the civilian back where it was. Now, across the two
    bridges, lies another nest! Get an APC and some tanks and put a civilian
    into the APC. Do a mini tank rush and deploy the civilian and gas up the
    nest. Return the civilian to the APC and rush back. Then, blow the bridges
    to kingdom come. Now, send your tanks and APC up where you'll encounter some
    more killer ants. Kill all that you can see until you find another nest in the
    north. Gas it up. Return the civilian to its cozy room. When you venture to the
    left a little, you will find a practically wrecked soviet base and Fire/Warrior
    Ants swarming around it. Kill them and deploy the civilian and take him to the 
    top left of the base to gas it up. Since the Soviet base is so wrecked, it would
    be a shame not to capture it. Send 2 Engineers (in an APC preferably) and capture
    the Soviet Barracks and completely fix it with the other engineer. Produce more 
    Engineers with these Barracks and conquer all the buildings you want, like the 
    Power Plants and such. Up there, refill your arsenal of tanks with the War Factory
    (if captured) and send them south (along with the Civilian APC). You will find a LOT
    of ants and blow them away and deploy the Civilian and gas up the nest. Mission
    Final Stage   
    You start out with many soldiers, Rifle Infantry, Rocket Soldiers, Medics, Flame
    Throwers and Stravros. Two soldiers that you have no control of will bravely fight
    off two ants and destroy themselves and the ants. Take a few reinforcements of
    Stravos and some other soldiers to the left. Kill all ants and head down in to a
    little chamber with a control panel. Use Stravos to activate the generator so you 
    could turn on the lights. As you proceed, go north. Kill all ants (pretty hard).
    Go west a while defending yourself and head down. Go though some more corridors 
    until you see tons of ants and the fat queen pumping there herself. Use raid (j/k)
    and kill all the ants. After that, concentrate on the queen then the eggs. By then,
    a Mammoth Tank reinforcement will arrive. Get rid of any other ants of eggs you
    might have missed. Mission Accomplished.
