The first major difficulty spike of SC arrives mid Chapter 3. This map can run both objectives side by side, luckily for everyone, making things simple. We will also be making use of the good old Gate squish trick to weaken some of the Manticore stacks to the point where they can be easily defeated. If your ARs are struggling you can add an RF to the backline to battle the Manticores, but this should not be needed in this case.
As it happens, you can't quite make the side by side clear happen, but the fix is very simple, and will be noted below. I'll add the actual screenshots in a little while!
Move the Combat Echelon up one node and then to right one node. End your turn now, despite having AP remaining.
In order to complete the Command Post Capture, you will move up two nodes, and activate the Console, opening the second set of Gates. This will break the Elimination objective and allow you to run to the Command Post at your leisure.
