Operation Windsor. Carpiquet Airfield is key to Caen's defense. Royal Commandos from 3rd Battalion are to infiltrate and establish a frontline for a predawn attack by the Royal Canadian Rifles.
News of the British taking Hill 112 has reached Carpiquet. A squad of volksgrenadiers is gunned down by commandos to clear the anti-aircraft site for the glider. Major Blackmore has been assigned to take Carpiquet, and is given commandos to infiltrate the area and take out the enemy command posts, supported by artillery fire from the Royal Scots.

Parachute Regiment Badge
Awarded for successfully destroying the targets of opportunity.
- Success highly depends on the understanding of the Commandos, for example, commandos excel at close range combat and using rapid firing rates to take out enemies quickly.
- Until the command posts are taken out and the RCR can move in, tetrarchs cannot be repaired, so keep them protected from explosives.
- Conditions will carry over for the next mission, so keeping the Flak 88s intact will prove to be highly beneficial later.
- This will also include any commandos used in taking the bonus objectives.
