This mission is identical, mission tasks and objectives, to the original version of The War Economy. The Total Stealth set of rules sounds just like the name; you need to make sure you are not seen at all (red warning). If this happens, then it is automatically a game over, so you have to go back to the previous checkpoint. As with the other rulesets, Chicken Hat and Reflex Mode are disabled.

The War Economy is probably the toughest out of the Total Stealth set of repeated missions, as the airport doesn’t leave a lot of room for error. One of the easier ways to deal with the main objective is to wait until the arms dealer meets up with the official and when they get to one of the hangars, spring out and go after them both. Using Quiet is another option, but she might have trouble hitting the soldiers using the Walker Gears.
