Snipers and eliminate enemies and remain a safe distance. They can also detect mines and invisible units.

You will gain control of a small squad of Snipers. They have a long range and can deal tremendous damage (only against infantry). Snipers can often eliminate hostile troops before they can even get close to them. After resisting the attack, slowly move forwards. You will be notified that you can detect mines (Wolverines can also do that). On your way, take control over energy nodes, as there won't be a lot of opportunities to gain resources. Once you get to a broken Pelican, Jerome will join your team. Furthermore, as soon as you clear the area, you will be granted with a mini base where Kodiaks will be placed. This heavy artillery will support you during attacks on the enemy base.

Build additional Marines and Snipers. You can get off track and eliminate Warlords, patrolling the nearby area. Once you reach a fortified position, instead of going towards the base, move the opposite direction. You may use Snipers without any additional help - they will easily get rid of enemy infantry and their leader. When assaulting the enemy base, make sure to eliminate the infantry in the fortifications first. They have a long range and are very effective against other infantry units. Now destroy the shield generator and eliminate all the remaining structures. Reach the target. You'll advance to the second part of the mission.

Alice needs to place 3 Kodiaks on the other side of the elevator. You will receive a small base and some space to build turrets. Upgrade one of them to fight against infantry, and the other to specialize in vehicles. You can also build 1-2 artilleries, as you will providing Kodiaks with an ally in each of the locations. The rest of the army will consist of Marines/Warthogs, some Cyclops and Snipers. The enemy will control a lot of mines and camouflaged units. Once you pass the second position, 2-4 Wolverines will come in handy.

Build a full army, destroy the generator behind the energy wall and slowly progress towards the first post. You will come across Grunts and heavy infantry on your way. Set Kodiaks, before each attack, so they can assist you in battle. When you pass the seconds post, you will reach the first Banished mini base. Destroy it and build your own. Now, you can eliminate another Warlords (just use the new path that leads towards your base. He will be defended by a turret and some vehicles, so throw all you have got to eliminate them as quickly as possible.

Use Holograms or Turret airdrop, to fire at the artillery without damaging your own troops. - Mission 9 - Under the Dark | Campaign - Campaign - Halo Wars 2 Game Guide
Use Holograms or Turret airdrop, to fire at the artillery without damaging your own troops.

Another energy wall is protected by some turrets. Place Kodiaks in the right distance, and send Jerome forward to provide vision for the artillery. As soon as his shield begins to fade, make him come back. There are two safe options to continue your attack: Turret airdrop (commander's ability) or use the new ability and create a hologram of your troops. Once you deal with the defenders, destroy the generator and move towards the second post. It will be protected by some heavy tanks. Place the artillery on the hill and strike will the remaining forces. Make sure that Alice takes over one of the tanks. There is another mini base on the mentioned hill. Use the opportunity and build a garage there. You could use some Wolverines.

The path to the last post will be defended by fortified turrets and an energy wall with some troops. Next, is the very enemy base supported by a new flying unit - the Shroud. It can shoot down your rockets and missiles. Its special ability makes the nearby units invisible. You will need a Wolverine to destroy it. Destroy the defenders and the base, and take a Kodiak to the last position.
