Commandos Wiki

Frustrate Retaliation is the ninteenth mission of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines.

Historic Background[]

January 1945. While the whole of France is liberated by Allied troops, the Soviets reach a devastated Warsaw. Berlin is the next stop for the Red Army. Meanwhile, the V2 missiles, the last hope of the Führer, begin to be launched against London and other Allied points.


Reconnaissance flights have spotted a V2 launching center in a small industrial setting at Oldenburg, west of Bremen. You will destroy the launching pads before the missiles are launched against London.

Tactical Advice[]

Well, officer. You'll start from this point and destroy these launching pads. Be careful if you cross the river. The waters here are so fast that you won't be able to row upstream. The light truck and the conveyor belt can be good means to get inside the base. Once you've completed your objectives, get away to the extraction point. Good luck, officer.
