China - Mission 4 'Halberstadt, Germany'
Very soon, you will be informed of the GLA retreating along the path shown on your radar. The GLA are coming from the western side of the map, and are moving northeast. Send in your Helices and tanks to stop them! While you are at it, send Red Guards to all the Artillery Platforms in the area to capture them, and you can see most of the battlefield.
When wave 1 of the GLA has been stopped, you will be notified. Continue to pump out Helix Helicopters and upgrade them with various peripherals for the task. Wave 2 will shortly come from the southern edge of the map, moving north, so send your Helices and Tanks there. When the GLA sends in their Quad Cannons, simply use your Overlords to deal with them. After some destruction, Wave 2 will be defeated. Now, build more Helices and brace for Wave 3.
Wave 3 comes from the far south west corner of the map. Be aware of it, the same methods apply. Wave 4 comes from the south east. Wave 5 comes from the south west.
As for Wave 6, things will get slightly harder. Our intel has been jammed,
so we cannot predict which direction the GLA are going through. However,
I have played this mission several times already, and have found that the
GLA will be entering the region from the west and the south, so watch those
2 areas. You have to be more careful, as more units will enter the region
at once, and sometimes, will be too much for your own units to handle.
Submitter's Tip! Nat Ng's Tip
So here is my strategy: Train lots of rocket soldiers and a few Red Guards. Keep building Helices nonstop from your airfield. Upgrade the Helices in this order: For every 5 Helixes, have 1 prop tower, 1 gattling cannon, and 3 bunkers full of Rocket Soldiers. Always make sure at least one prop Helix travels with each squadron to heal it and detect stealth units.
Capture all the tech buildings on the map as and when you have the time.
Obviously, when you receive an alert that the enemy is coming from a particular point, send all your Helices there and blow them away. You don't even need to upgrade them with bombs! The only things that might give you trouble are Quad Cannons, but they won't be appearing in large groups until you have enough Helices to blast them away.
For the final "two way" part, split your Helixes into 2 groups and station them at the centre of the map... then just wait. The artillery platforms give you such great sight range that you can spot the GLA coming and crush them immediately.
I used this strategy on my first run through the mission. At the end, I had 20 Helixes and about $30,000 (if I recall correctly). Not one of my units was lost.
