of this mission are to take out the SAM site, rescue
the crew of the V-22 Osprey and reach the extraction
zone safely - with an optional objective of retrieving
the code book.
I play as a sniper and try to use my men in a way to cover
all avenues. When I play SP games I always go for the
optional objective first, see the route below which
reflects how I would sweep down to where the code book
is. C is the sniper/demo team and at A I can scope the
watchtower and take out the snipers at both the tower
and the shack below, where your team can take up its
Scope the Watchtower
By moving your teams thru the passages
in the cliffs you can make short work of meeting the
objectives. After dispatching the snipers from the watchtower
you can advance the team until they are in position
to cover the rescue of the Marines (and give you more
firepower for retrieving the codebook) and to the V-22
as shown below. This route also shows where the teams
can be set up for covering and holding back until the
SAM can be taken out, as shown in the second image.
Scope the SAM
Once the SAM is taken out it's just
a matter of sweeping south to dispatch the rest of the
Cubans. If completed in a similar way to how I have
outlined there is no need to enter the extraction zone
as you will eliminate all resistance.
Playing as a sniper allows for taking
long shots from hidden places where the enemy knows
not where you are.
