This, gentlemen, is it. We've pushed the Ethiopian forces back across the border, and we've been in contact with the legitimate government in exile. With any luck, they'll be back in power shortly, and we can wrap this up. There's just one detail left to take care of: Colonel Tesfaye Wolde. Wolde has decided that the best way to salvage the current situation is to ride out with whatever armor he's got left in an effort to rally the troops personally. I'll leave the wisdom of that particular approach for you to judge, but you can't fault the man's guts. In any case, the column he's riding with is moving north. We're expecting it to hit a bridge over the Mereb Wenz at approximately 1100 hours, and you're going to be there to greet it. The column will be moving over a bridge that crosses a gorge near a series of waterfalls. You'll be going in downstream, near a broad, shallow ford guarded by a few customs buildings. You'll want to secure that crossing immediately, then move into position to take out the tanks. The bridge is probably the best place to bottle them up, and you'll definitely want to take out the infantry holding it before the armor gets there. If not, they'll link up and you'll be in a world of hurt. One more thing: The last of their SAM launchers is guarding the bridge as well. It's positioned to the west of the crossing, along the route the tanks are going to follow. Take it out and we can end this once and for all.


With his invasion failing, Colonel Tesfaye Wolde went out into the field to rally his troops. The Ghosts were deployed to take out the advancing enemy column. They secured a bridge ahead of the line and then destroyed Wolde's armored vehicles, ending the conflict.
