Extract the prisoner plotting to escape from the Wakh Sind Barracks

The barracks are heavily guarded, but there just so happens to be an easy way in that will deposit you right next to the prisoner hatching an escape plot. There are two ways to approach the barracks; one will have you facing tiered guard stations kitted out with spotlights, beyond which is the main road into the barracks. The other is on the opposite side, along the main road with a barrier across it.

Considering it's the main road into the barracks, it isn't very heavily guarded. Grab the intel from the security guard's hut, then use the containers on the right for cover. The road to the main barracks runs parallel to this spot.

You can climb up to the guard station, and staying low, cross the road to the watchtower. Climb the ladder and jump off the top onto the cliff-side next to you - you'll make it, don't worry. From here, skirt around to the right of the cliff to find the prisoner sitting on the edge and fulton him out of there, taking care not to be seen.

Extract the captured engineer

After entering the barracks as described above, make your way inwards and you'll spot the bare bones of a multi-story building opposite, with stairs leading down. There are a number of guards lurking down there, so of course, that's where your engineer is. They do patrol and venture up the stairs, so depending on whether you've got a decent place to dispose of the bodies and how fast you can move, you could kill them as they each emerge at the top of the steps. Whatever your approach, don't get stuck in the basement if it all kicks off.

After getting the engineer out of his cell, cross into the room opposite to see a gaping hole in the ceiling which is where you can fulton the engineer out of, saving you the hassle of carrying him around for longer than necessary. Remember - as long as you can see the sky above you, you can use your fulton.

Extract the four wheel drive

Depending on how your R & D team is shaping up, you may not have the capabilities to use a fulton on a vehicle yet. You'll find the four wheel drive in the lower part of the area leading to the barracks. Where all of the soldiers, turrets, mortars, and spotlights are. If you can sneak past and airlift out a vehicle from under the noses of a dozen Soviet soldiers, then you deserve a medal. Otherwise maybe it's time to commandeer a turret and unleash hell. You can wash the blood off the car back at Mother Base.

Secure the blueprint at Wakh Sind Barracks

You can interrogate soldiers to find the location of the blueprint and various resources at the barracks, or take a look around once you infiltrate the outpost. The location is marked on the map above.
