Primary Objective no:1
Eliminate Enemy Early Warning Radar to allow friendly shipping to approach the island. (timelimit 5 minutes)
This is a very easy objective to take. Have your team follw you in a tight formation then move them to defensive position close to the burned out car. Wait until the orders from Saber have finished and take out the two hostiles which appear regulaly from the left side of the building. Try to get them before they go prone, much easier that way. Once they are gone move fast to the building but dont go straight around it. Have your team split 2 in defense one following you. Your objective is to get to the radar and blow it up. Have your medic follow you laying down suppressive fire if necessary whilst you move to the radar. There is usually 3 to 4 hostiles behind the defensive sandbags protecting the radar. Once you have eliminated them plant the detonator on the radar and move to a safe distance before blowing it. Once you have blown up the radar you need to be heading into the village. Firstly, use your artillery strike in the center of the village and move fast down the bank.
You can avoid the village altogether but thats the chicken route and your sabre teams are in contact in the village and need additional support. If you support them they will come to your aid just when you need them most. Dont leave them behind. Moving down the bank into the village can be tricky. Make sure you have your team in tight formation and firing on your lead. As you can see in my video my team sees the defensive machinegun bunker with a rifle man on guard. I fire into the air, since I dont see him initially, and he is taken out. From there move directly into the village clearing the hostiles on your left. The artillary should of taken a good few of the hostiles so the village clearance might be quick. What I tend to do, what I always do rather, is make sure there is a jeep repaired and left in the village for the Saber 1 and 3. There is 2 to 3 jeeps in the village but the artillary might take one and u might have to destroy one if you are starting to get over run and the jeep is causing too much hassle. If you are wanting to keep the jeep dont give the order to engage jeep. They will take it out with anti tank and bye bye jeep. If there is only one jeep left in village leave it and run to LZ with you team. By the time you get into defensive position Sabre 1 will be in the jeep and in the fight supporting you.
Primary Objective no:2
Clear the LZ of any hostiles (no timelimit)
Move to the area where you started the mission from, just past the ammo crates. Hostiles will be coming along the MSR to your north. take a prone position on the road and have your team left flank heading north. Try to keep moving fast and heading left into the woods near the point where the two hostile jeeps are parked. There is always hostiles in these woods so be careful on your approach. Eventhough LZ looks clear always be aware that one straggler may be lurking near by. If you want to be a total chicken board the helicopter without doing the rest of the mission. If you do you will miss the best parts and you have not played the game completely.
Once you have cleared the LZ get your team into a jeep and head up the MSR on onto the clifftop area over looking the lighthouse area and hostile defensive bunker near the ruines. Drive fast and avoid hostiles on route and you can clear them on the way back to helicopter for extraction.
Secondary Objective no:1 and 2
Take out sam missile launcher at the lighthouse.
Always do the lighthouse first once all secondary objectives have been done you have a timelimit to get back to LZ and get on the helicopter. If you are 2km away at the lighthouse and you have to do repairs to vehicle you are pushing it to get back to LZ in time. Do the closest to LZ secondary object last, that way you only have 600 metres of so to get back to LZ.
Once you are in position over looking the hostile defensive location heal any team members and have them fire on your lead. Send 2 right flanking the defensive bunker and have your medic follow you. keep clolse to the tree line and move slowly. Once you are 150 metres away move up the side and take a shot at one of the hostiles, if he has not already opened fire on you. there will be at least 4 hostiles at this position so make sure there are all taken care of before you move up to the ruines. They may get sneaky during the firefight and move down onto the cliff edges. No worries that where you sent 2 of your team members too. Assist them if possible with the firefight. Move up to the ruines ASAP and regroup your team. In the ruines you will find an ammo create. Get yourself with the javelin and take out secondary objective no:2 from 800 metres. This will take out the sunburn missile launches easy without risking engagementsdoing it on foot. Once you have taken out the sunburn launcher get another javelin round from the ammo create and head down the far side of the cliff to the road. Move slowly forward until you see the APC to the right of the lighthouse hidding in the corner. Take it out with the javelin. Whilst all this is going on I suggest you have your team defend the ruines weapons free. Sometimes when I do this part of the mission the team get ambushed. Once you have done this head back up the hill to the ruines and get rid of the javelin. You then need to be heading down the right side of the cliffs towards the lighthouse.
It is at this location where you will have this biggest engagement of this section of the mission. Watchout for ambushes from your left flank. Have 2 members of your team defend the wooden structure on your far left and take your medic into the complex to blow up the missile laucher. Once you have blown up the missile launcher get into the jeep and head to the exit of the complex. Call in your team and get them to board the vehicle.
Secondary Objective no:3
Take out sam missile launcher at the beach.
This bit can be tricky, especially if its night time and you are doing it in the dark. You will come across a an hostile defensive location near the top of the hill before you reach the beach. Also you will notice on the beach there is a hostile helicopter which you can use if you want. Attact the objective left flank eliminating hostiles in bunkers on right of missiles. Be aware that enemy can reinforce from the hills so keep your team up on the hill s whilst you blow up the missiles. Once the missiles are blown leg it back to the jeep aviod contact on route to jeep just keep running and you will be fine. There is a barret and the destroyed house if you want to take that before you start the assault on the missile laucher, but you dont really need it your primary weapon is more than adequate for the close quarter fighting that you will be involved in for this objective.
Get back to LZ for extraction.
He comes the simple bit just get back to your jeep and head back to LZ avoid contact if you can mission is over once you board the helicopter.
