The ContractEdit

This contract involves locating and escorting a Chinese officer to Haeju. The officer is marked on the map on the road next to the NK Artillery base, with the NK outpost just down the road. Once you leave HQ hop in a nearby BJ2020 and start driving towards the officer. It is not recommended to do this contract via helicopter because of the anti-air weapons, plus the SA-8 at the chokepoint and the SA-8 that can target the player from the NK Artillery Base.

Escort service nk outpost

The NK outpost, with all three tents

A North Korean roadblock is set up on the intersection of the road towards Nampo, Allied MASH and the NK Artillery Base. The roadblock is comprised of several NK troops and a T-54 tank. Two Sungri Scout's patrol the road past the roadblock and the NK outpost. There is a SA-8 Anti-Air vehicle past the NK Roadblock and the NK outpost. Sometimes, there is an NK soldier with a AA missile launcher on the hill above and behind the tunnel entrance near the Officer's location. A single Strategic Missile Strike placed right in the middle of the three tents is enough to take all three out, as well as many of the nearby NK forces. Once the tents are taken care of continue driving towards Haeju.

Once you pass the tents you will encounter numerous RPG troops along the road, as well as Sungri Scouts and two BRDM Scouts. Simply drive past these obstructions in a fast vehicle and you should be fine, but be careful, the Sungri Scouts will give chase and may follow you into Haeju, so take them out of they do. Once you enter Haeju you'll be safe. Just drive to the drop off point and it's contract complete.

The value of the contract is $60,000 plus an additional $20,000 for the completion of the bonus objective. Completing this contract will make the Type 89 APC available for purchase from the Merchant of Menace. Intel regarding the location of the Two of Diamonds will also be given.
