Paranoid of Red Army coups, a drunken Stalin persuades a reluctant Field Marshal Gradenko to sign execution orders of prominent Soviet officers. Presumably, Stalin did not question Gradenko why he abandoned a truck containing elements of the Iron Curtain as a way to test Gradenko's loyalty. Kukov and Nadia, who were spying on Gradenko and Stalin by camera, now tasked the commander to destroy the truck, which by then had been salvaged by the Allies, since it now became a liability.
The elimination of this Mobile Command Center proved a success. Stalin conquers Norway with great effort despite Allied attempts to hold and defend the Norwegian headquarters from being attacked. This eventually fails as the Allies still broke into the Dark Horseman to override codes and destroy Soviet forces inside before a Nuclear Missile hits London. With the Allies in pockets of resistance, they still hold a convoy of trucks in their grasp and Kukov sends the Commander immediately to France in rescuing them.
