Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Mission is named V2 Rocket in the game files.
- It is possible to kill the base commander before he is alerted by blind-bombarding his post with several mortars from the vicinity of the oxygen tank. The resilient officer will perish with the collapse of the building. However, doing so will make the medal unobtainable, as the bonus objective will never be triggered. This is likely a development oversight.
- The "trophy" commander has a fully-scripted escape route: first to another command station on the rooftop, then to the entrance of the launch pad. Basically, he is running into a dead end rather than making an escape. In fact, he could be bypassed by a commander that follows an unorthodox tactic or seeks a faster finish, but not likely be truly missed.
