We've been tapped for a search and rescue. The Navy's been flying sorties against rebel positions from it's carrier battle group in the Black Sea. Last night, the bad guys got lucky with a SAM and took out one of our F-18s. The pilot and the weapons officer both bailed out before impact, but the rebels picked them up shortly after they activated their beacons.
They're being held for interrogation at a farm near the crash site. You're job is to go in and bring them back out alive. Recon photos show the F-18 is still largely intact but heavily guarded. If it's possible to plant a demo charge and blow the plane, do it - but don't jeopardize your main mission.
And try to minimize Ossetian casualties - the Russians are already making a big stink at the U.N. about us being here and we don't want to give them any more ammunition. If Moscow decides to intervene, we're going to find ourselves smack in the middle of a major war.
1. Rescue Pilot
2. Rescue W. Officer
3. Get to the Extraction Zone
X. Destroy Avionics (Secondary Objective)
Location: South Ossetian Autonomous Region
Date: 24 April 2008
Time: 2:15AM (Night)
The Farm House
Insertion and Extraction
You will be inserted to the North East of the farm where the captured pilot and WSO are being held. From there you will make your own way to the farm on foot.
Intel shows that the enemy is approximately 40 men strong. Naturally the enemy is concentrated around the objectives but there are a few of them pacing the creek. With this amount of man power it would make sense that they've set up a command post somewhere on the map, most likely the farm house in the middle of the AO.
We also know that when the pilot and WSO were captured they were separated and are currently held in 2 different locations. We suspect that one is being held in the farm house and the other in the near by barn.
Once you've found both the pilot and WSO, make your way back to the insertion zone where you will be picked up by helicopter.
If possible, we'd like you to destroy the downed plane as well but only if you can. The pilot and WSO come first as you should know.
As you know the night will be cloudy so that means it'll be pitch black out there which means zero visibility. You might want to use that to your advantage.
