A Nasty Surprise Remake

Lead the American forces and launch the decisive attack against the CCA Main Base, and encounter the deadliest unit ever created... The first-ever campaign remake has come, based off of one of the most popular missions of all time. A Nasty Surprise has been rebuilt from the ground-up and designed to provide maximum immersion, quality, and explosions! Many praised elements have been passed on from the 1.5 version of A Nasty Surprise Remake.

GOG/External Download Link (English Only, ModDB):

The Soviets are stronger and nastier than ever before! As the mission progresses, the CCA attacks will grow in difficulty, pushing you towards conquering their base and providing you with the scrap required to build your armies.

Commander Eldridge and the Colorado base are living, breathing allies. They will construct a base and attempt to attack the Soviets, until their inevitable fate... unless you rescue the Colorado from their destruction.

Grizzly One gives his story-telling monologue in the critically acclaimed opening cinematic featured in A Nasty Surprise, a similar method used in the opening of the NSDF campaign.

Three key combinations can be used at any time in the mission, but it's up to you to find out how to activate them! Crush the Soviets with the power of RAVE, or WRECK the Soviet L-Powers with free Day Wreckers! The key combo CTRL+SHIFT+TIME also works, showing you the duration of your mission.

Along with the additions and improvements above, A Nasty Surprise Remake also includes several big (and little) bug fixes and upholds a new level of mission quality. A Nasty Surprise Remake is also the first multi-language custom addon in Battlezone!

To play A Nasty Surprise, subscribe to the mission with the button above. Go to the Instant Action menu located in the Singleplayer menu, and select A Nasty Surprise Remake. Enjoy!

This was excellent. I had to use day wrecker mortars to destroy the CCA base. If I left my base it was usually over run by the endless waves of CCA units.

Oh, and things spawning out of thin air FTL. If that's going to happen, at least make it happen from the edge of the map or beyond the enemy's base; at least those are somewhat plausible locations. Not on my side of their gun towers.

Thank God for Day Wreckers and targets being marked from afar.

Great job and a real challenge! I'm playing on very hard and I don't see any possibility to conduct a conventional attack :) My dual SP-Stabber tank battalions get wiped as soon as they leave the base. It seems that the only way to win is to accumulate a lot of scrap and bomb enemy base with Day Wreckers...

Looking forward for more remakes!

This is what this mission was supposed to beat. Ridiculously intense in all the right ways. Well done!

Yeah, I have, but unfortunately I don't have the time to do so. :(

Dude this mission is intense. I have not beaten it yet on Medium. The enemy has so many troops! Great work. Have you thought about redoing other missions?
