Overview[edit | edit source]
The Central Intelligence Agency is an organization that works to gather intelligence for the purposes of assessing foreign threats to the United States, and how to properly respond to them. CIA agents have been seen in both games.
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction[edit | edit source]
The CIA make their first appearance when the mercenary travels to Kaesong and meets Buford, an old style CIA agent that has been working for 30 years behind the scenes and helping out the South Koreans as much as he can. The CIA has created an alliance between America and South Korea, called the South Korean Union or SKU in hopes of defending against the KPA and developing a friendship with the West. It is Buford's job to make sure that neither the KPA nor the PLA gain control of South Korea and turn it into a communist country and instead make it a pro-democratic country.
Mercenaries 2: World in Flames[edit | edit source]
The CIA appear once again in the second game in the form of Agent Joyce. This time however they are working in collusion with the Allied Nations, funding and supplying Universal Petroleum so they can take control of Venezuela's oil supply for the West. Also featured in this game are other CIA agents in one mission. A CIA plane carrying precious documents and high tech equipment was downed over Isla De Magarita, an island owned by China and the surviving pilots were taken captive. These two pilots are the only other CIA agents featured in both games and wear an AN officer type uniform, but more casual looking.
