Try to play on hard this mission :D
I met a problem. I tried to finish this mission (of course on hard level), but it's really impossible!
Or I and some people wrong play or this disbalance should to fix.
PS Mission 06b... is too impossible
This mission seems impossible to me too. I think it's s a bug, but maybe we are missing something.
The problem is that to win you must make a naval yard. But you can only position structures within a certain radius of the (land) base building. Even if you capture enemy buildings by the shore, it is impossible to construct anything on sea or land near them.
If you build the base anywhere near where it is at the start of the game, there is no water within its radius. I tried moving it to the east, but even with the radius overlapping the water I couldn't get more than a little piece of the naval base to show as white.
An alternative would be to move the base somewhere South, either very near the enemy base or down one of the 2 peninsulas. But that seems suicidal.
And the MCV is not one of the units available to build, even with the service depot and radar dome built; so there's no way to make a new base.
I notice this [strategy guide][https://www.keengamer.com/articles/guid ... _North/url]) for the original RA explicitly says to capture the enemy radar dome so you can construct a naval yard. Doesn't work in OpenRA.
The restriction that structures must be within a certain distance of the base building is not specific to this mission; I've noticed it while playing Soviet missions too.
Yes, I was missing something. Right-clicking on a base turns it back into a MCV, so it can be relocated. With that trick, which I inferred from watching @TaxOwlbear's video, I was able to complete the mission. Although I had a lot more trouble surviving the initial attacks than shown there, and I was on the easy level.

I didn't know this feature! I had such a hard time in Khalkis island, when the blue guys destroyed the extra MCV that you are granted, and then I had to attack the island producing the units outside the island and moving them with transports, all with very limited ore, just the one that regenerates, while my blue friends had all the ore of the island for them.
Or in the convoy mission, when I too discovered that if you put the base too far from the water then you cannot build the submarine factory (whatever is named), because the build radius counts from the building factory (whatever is named). Then I had to destroy the boats with tanks.
