This is a high-risk hostage rescue operation with two primary objectives; Safely rescue the hostages, and leave no survivors. Gear up; It’s time to step off.
The thrash of the helicopter is felt as it descends upon you from the night sky above. All overt lights have been dissabled as to not alert enemy spotters of an oncoming military attack. You board the helicopter, depart the CIA Black Site, and fly into the darkness. Your legs hang from the helicopter door as the pilots make their way closer to your insert position. Through night vision goggles, the pilots spot your maritime rendezvous vessels waiting 70 miles off shore: 30 seconds! The crew chief yells over the roar of the helicopter blades. On his call, you helocast into the black water, lurking 25 feet below.
The helicopter departs; You wait in the dead quiet of the ocean. There is a growing hum from the blacked-out military boats approaching. The boat crew helps you and your team aboard, and assists in dawning the final pieces of your tactical loadout: Your M4 with an IR laser secured to the rails, a full load of 5.56 magazines, and your night vision goggles. With the turn of a dial, your night vision device illuminates. There it is; The steel island pinned against the distant horizon. The engines roar and you head directly towards it.
With your weapon slung on your back, and your night vision goggles providing the only source of sight, you grip each rung of the 60 foot ladder leading up to the lower deck of the oil rig, knowing that the consequences of falling six stories to the metal boat deck below will certainly compromise the mission. Your team is fully accounted for and ready to assault the steel jungle lying ahead. You maintain absolute stealth for as long as possible, but inevitably, you come face to face with your opposition. Your training proves worthy as you send rounds from the barrel of your weapon, ripping through your enemy’s chest. Stray bullets from the gun fight ricochet into the gas lines winding throughout the entire platform. Flames begin to pour across the maze of metal beams and piping. Your element of surprise is over; The enemy knows you’re here.
