|Metal Island ← → Air Traffic Control |
We have stopped the enemy from destroying Kazakhstan's oil infrastructure for the moment, but we have much work still to do. We have an unidentified, deep-draft vessel inbound toward our oil platform from the south. You will conduct an aerial reconnaissance to determine the ship's origins and intentions. If she's neutral, pull off and report. If she's anything else, she's hostile and you will defend yourself accordingly.
In this mission, the player plays from the point of view of the People's Liberation Army. The mission takes place in the same location as Metal Island. The PLA is suspicious about a nearby ship that just entered the vicinity, so they send WZ-9s to check whether the ship is a civilian one or a NATO one. When they realize the ship belongs to NATO, they helicopters are tasked to sink the ship before it does damage to the oil rig nearby. The player can either use the WZ-9's rockets at the weak areas of the ship or hot-swap to one of the soldiers at the ship and plant explosives at the same spots. When the ship is destroyed, the mission is complete.
To achieve a full 10-star rating, the player will need to complete the following milestones by the end of the mission:
