This is the briefing now:

The empire is constructing a channel which will connect Lake Yukarwa with Lake 
Lulu. If finished, it would enable quick transport of troops between the 
lakes, endangering our operations.

You are chosen to lead a small force which will take control of the area and 
stop construction of the channel.

However, it appears that enemy forces are somewhat stronger than we 
expected... Good luck!

Well, how do you destroy a channel? ;) The Empire is (ab)using local workforce 
anyway, so if FNA wants to finish the channel, it can do so, and it's near 
completion anyway.

(Almost) final map is attached. I introduced handicaps, and the only thing I 
don't have is map name.
