Chu-ho Kim, also known as the Nine of Diamonds, is General Chang's chief of staff in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.

ExOps BioEdit

Name: Chu-ho Kim
"Major Kim is General Chang's Chief of Staff. Formerly a cabinet minister in President Kim's government, Kim is likely a principle planner in Song's coup. He served for 20 years in the DPRK army and now puts his experience in the field to use keeping the North Korean troops supplied during the AN action."


The e-mail will come from Allied intelligence officers who have been monitoring NK chatter and have found that Kim is located somewhere north of Haeju. More specifically he is located more north-west of Haeju, along the dirt road leading from the entrance of the city. When you first enter Haeju from the north you should see two Type 89 APCs moving west along the train tracks, follow them and they will lead you to a large battle between PLA and KPA forces. The Chinese will have the two Type 89s, and have set up grenade MGs which are useful for destroying the KPA forces which include a BMP APC and RPG troops.

After the player passes the battle eventually their radar should be jammed. The player will soon encounter KPA T-54 tanks, ZSU-57 Anti-Airs and an MD-500 Scout patrolling ahead. Upon entering the area where Kim is there will be more T-54s and ZSUs. The control vehicle jamming your radar will be located near four FROG-7 trucks which if destroyed will also blow up the control vehicle as well as Kim himself, so killing the soldiers inside to truck would be wiser. Kim himself is guarded by a couple of soldiers, two of which are elite soldiers and two nearby heavy Machine Gun turrets.

He can be found in the Southern Province of North Korea, along with the Clubs, but he and the other Diamonds can only be verified after the Ace of Clubs contract has been completed.

His exact location is north-west of Haeju, far south of the Ten of Diamonds and directly far west of Farmland. He can be found at the end of the dirt road.

Subject: Major Chu-ho Kim, the 9 of Diamonds
I've received another dispatch from Allied intelligence. They're monitoring a lot of NK chatter that indicates Major Kim is active north of Haeju. This guy served for 20 years in the DPRK's army before becoming General Chang's Chief of Staff. watch out for the guy.
