Mission objective:[edit | edit source]
Nuclear weapons grade plutonium has been recovered during a RAINBOW interdiction operation in St. Petersburg. The material has been traced to a weapons storage facility near Murmansk. Your mission is to raid the facility and take control of any remaining fissile material.
Briefing[edit | edit source]
John Clark - You hit the jackpot. Those suitcases contained almost two million dollars American, and enough plutonium to level a city.
The installation the material came from is a storage facility for tactical warheads used by the Russian navy. It's run by a Colonel Viktor Rudenko - who until yesterday had a perfect service record. The Kremlin publicly admits nothing, but privately they're extremely embarrassed. They've agreed to let RAINBOW shut Rudenko's operation down - that's how little confidence they have in their own forces. Be sure to bring the good colonel out alive - we'll want him for questioning.
Susan Holt - We've been afraid something like this would happen for a long time. The Russian military is coming apart at the seams. Some units haven't been paid for over a year. It was only a matter of time before there was a major security breach.
The Kremlin is taking a huge gamble in using RAINBOW for this operation. The only people who know about this are the president and a few of his closest aides. If this operation is botched, it'll bring down the government.
Mission Orders[edit | edit source]
Your objective is to locate the Colonel and escort him back to the extraction zone. If the alarm is raised Rudenko and his bodyguards will try to escape by car - keep all the escape routes covered. Be aware that the guards at the front gate can contact the main complex by telephone.
