First, an introduction:
There is no quick way to do the challenge missions. You have to do all 10 with all 9 sub-factions. It takes an average of 15 minutes (give or take) for each mission, so you're in for the long haul.

Kane's Challenge is similar to the Generals Challenge in Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour, if you played that. You pick one of 9 sub-factions (within 3 factions), and battle against all 9 of the sub-factions, with a 2v1 battle at the end.

Now for this particular sub-faction:
The Black Hand is one of the 3 sub-factions of NOD, which means for the most part, they are very similar to the regular NOD units, but there are some slight differences:

- They have NO aircraft. You won't need them though.
- They can buff their flame units (Purifiers, Flame Tanks, and Black Hand troopers)

For pretty much each level, build two war factories and spam out purifiers ($3000). Make sure you have enough resources coming in (I recommend at least 3 refineries) to keep up. Also, purchase the "Purifying Flame" upgrade from the Secret Shrine ($2000) to upgrade their flamethrowers. They use lasers by default but rape anything in close proximity with the flamethrowers. Build a couple of Mantis's too, to protect your purifiers from air attacks.

Remember to build a decent defense, with AA and Obelisks, but don't focus too heavy on it. Build a Temple of Nod and nuke your enemy's power plants to knock out their defense to make it a little easier.

Only the third battle (VS Traveler-59) gave me any real trouble. They'll throw aircraft at you early on and obliterate your harvesters if you aren't careful. Get a few Mantis's early on to counteract this.
