I ran through some other tips on Ambush mission..but for some reason..the tips always assume I am farther along in the mission than I've reached...Now I know there's gotta be away to do this without retreating to the duast off point.?!..Mayday!

Wardog where are you at in the mission? No matter what you do in that mission you will have to retreat to the beach. But I'd be gald to help you out if your stuck on a certain part

Sorry, but what are your mission objectives in Ambush? I can`t remember, it`s been a while... Posted Image
Red Hammer or the original campaign?

if your talking about the mission i think you are (single mission #2) then no you dont always get forced to the beach, it only forces you to retreat because of the tanks if you enter the town.
If you stay on the outskirts, say 50-100m out and kill all occupants from there then the re-inforcements wont arrive followed by the tanks

hope this helps Posted Image

I guess getting "out alive" and retreating to the beach isn't the defeat I thought..I've since made it past tehis mission and curently getting my chopper basics down...

I know iv beaten that mission before without having to retreat to anywhere. I think its contigent on how many squad members you have left by the time you reach houdan.

I'v done it before with about 7 squad members still there by the time we reached houdan and all we had to do was clear the town of infantry and we won. But then, i just got done playing it through again and had about three mates left by the time we reached the town and we got forced out by tanks.

what i think it is after doing some experimenting is a trigger zone around the town, enter it and it sets off the tanks, dont enter it, they stay put...

I finally did it!

My entire team got killed when approaching Houdan, the first town. I didn't enter the town, as to not set off any triggers. But the tanks came anyway. I retreated in the direction of my base, as suggested. And one tank came after me. I managed to capture that one (with a lot of saving and reloading). Then I got back to Houdan, killed some infantry. Didn't see the other tanks anymore. Moved on to Dourdan. Nobody was there. Then I moved around the area in the direction of the beach. There were the 3 other tanks plus a shilka. I destroyed those, and went back to Houdan. I found some remaining infantry there. I shot them, and the game was over. Mission completed! Posted Image
