  • Secure the deployment plans
  • Eliminate the colonel
  • Eliminate all tanks
  • Extract the colonel
  • Eliminate the colonel and all tanks before they reach Smasei Fort
  • Extract the prisoner being held at Sakhra Ee Village
  • Extract all tanks

Secure the deployment plans


You can find the deployment plans at the location above. Your iDroid will update your map afterwards.

Eliminate or extract the colonel and the tanks before they reach Smasei Fort

I came across a brilliant method of completing this objective that works like a charm.

Head straight off from the LZ until you reach a small outpost. Head to the end opposite the watchtower and grab yourself a soldier to plant on the road further along. Don’t forget to pick up his weapons.

With your new unconscious friend slung across your shoulders, follow the road away from the watchtower, past the burned out vehicles, and set him down a bit further on.

The convoy will approach shortly and stop when they see him. When that happens, quickly drop down and attach a fulton to the tank at the rear.

Your next target is the truck. If the convoy is on the move again, quickly fire at the wheels to make them stop again, and attach a fulton to the truck.

Use the same method on the last tank and you’ll complete five objectives all in one go.

As long as you stay out of sight behind the vehicles, no one should spot you.

Extract the prisoner being held at Sakhra Ee Village


The prisoner is in a building to the east in the village, in the same room as the outpost’s transmitter. The location is marked on the map above.
