Into the Green Zone (Level 1)

Get the VIP into the yellow circle.

"I may lose my lunch"
— the VIP sharing his worst fears

This contract is not story related and is not required for anything except unlocking shop items. This challenge is very short and straightforward: Deliver the UP VIP to a location. It is a leveled contract and optionally timed contract, it has three levels of increasing difficulty and an increasing bonus for delivering the VIP within a time limit. Imagine this as being a overqualified (hopefully) and overpaid taxi driver being paid to drive through several intense firefights.

The locations vary according the the level, Level 1 is the UP HQ, Level 2 is the UP Supply Depot, Level 3 is UP's Altagracia Outpost.

The in-game recommendation recommends a Raven GL, that is totally up to the player but it is a bad idea to have a gunner on the GL because there is a high chance that the gunner will fire at an elevated angle and actually lead the vehicle and hit the Raven. The best idea is to use a helicopter since there will be no resistance in the air if the player flies high, keep in mind that VZ (Hostile) anti-air rocket troops will spawn on buildings along the way and they will fire at any helicopters in range of them, so fly above their lock-on range. 

This contract is significantly easier from the air after the Allied invasion since most buildings in Maracaibo will be destroyed, therefore less SAM troops.
