Hey there Commanders! Stuck with the Campaign for Command & Conquer: Red Alert Remastered? No worries, XYHC and GameReplays.Org have prepared a guide for you to tackle Missions 1 to 9 of the Soviet Campaign on Hard difficulty. With practice and personal experimentation, you will be going through these missions like plasma knife through polybutter!

Mission 8

Investigate Elba Island

This mission again starts with enemies attacking you right away. You’ll need to build Barracks as your first structure to quickly kill off any enemies.

Doesn’t wait a moment to kill


Enemies will attack from all directions here, including via naval transport & cruisers. Fortunately, this is the mission where you unlock Tesla Coil. It can prove an effective defense to fend off enemies coming from multiple ways.

Place Tesla here to deny three ways of attack at once!

Game’s Laggy?
This is a large-scale mission. If your units become increasingly unresponsive, press “space” to switch to old graphics to avoid some lags.


The forward enemy base is in face “fake” and cannot be captured for expansion purposes. You will need more Ore Trucks than usual for long distance harvesting later on. It will also become necessary to protect Ore Trucks outside of your base from harassments.

Tricked ya!


Tired of Cruiser attacks?
Build and send subs here to camp and kill enemy Submarine Pen

Check once in a while - They will try to rebuild the Sub Pen


At the end of the day, this mission is about defending your economy while amassing tanks. Search across the map thoroughly for any enemy units you missed. You’ll need plenty submarines to defend your base as well as hunt down enemy ships hiding in corners.
