Chapter 2 Main Missions

M49 - Occupation Forces (Subsistence)

# Mission Task Mandatory/Optional
1 Secured the deployment plans. Optional
2 Eliminated the colonel. Mandatory
3 Eliminated all tanks. Mandatory
4 Extracted the colonel. Optional
5 Eliminated the colonel and all tanks before they reach Smasei Fort. Optional
6 Extracted the prisoner held at Sakhra Ee Village. Optional
7 Extracted all tanks. Optional

This mission is identical, mission tasks and objectives, to the original version of Occupation Forces. However, the Subsistence rule starts you with nothing but your binoculars and your Fulton Device. Everything else will need to be acquired in the field, usually from enemies. You cannot bring a Buddy and neither can call in supply drops or support attacks. The Chicken Hat and Reflex Mode are also disabled.

You might have a rough time on this mission, due to starting with absolutely nothing and having to face off against two tanks. However, you have the option to extract the tanks since you still have your Fulton Device, which is how you should do this mission quickly. Since you know where the colonel and the tanks are coming from, you can use an enemy as a roadblock, as that’s really the only thing you can use. While the vehicles are stopped, sneak up behind them and use your Fulton Device to extract them.
