Your goal in this mission is to eliminate the CFA armored column assembling to the north of Nova Braga Airport. The column consists of four armored vehicles, which will be moving as soon as the mission begins. There is one spot that three of them will pass through, which is the guard post just west of the central landing zone.

So, land there and quickly head west to that guard post to find around 5-6 enemies there. Quickly put them to sleep and extract them so they’re not in your way. The vehicle from the north will be the first to arrive (tank) and will stop at the guard post before the other two arrive, so sneak up behind it to Fulton it. Wait for the second two to stop and maneuver behind them to grab them, too.

Head to the guard post shown on the map (left) and quickly clear it of enemies. The vehicles will stop here, making it easy to Fulton extract them (right).

You will now have two more targets marked on your map, one of which is an armored vehicle, but the other is an enemy gunship. The ground vehicle will keep going until it reaches the airport, stopping right outside of the entrance, while the gunship will touch down at the guard post. If you have a rocket launcher with high damage, shoot the gunship, knowing it might take a few shots to really destroy it. Find and grab the remaining vehicle, then hightail out of the hot zone to finish the mission.

Mission Tasks 5 & 6

The commander is riding in the gunship, so you’ll need to leave it alone until the commander gets out at Nova Braga Airport. Once he gets out, he will eventually move into a smaller building west of the main building at the airport. This is also the place where he hid the rough diamonds, which will be on one of the shelves in that room.
