ExOps bio[]

Name: Nam-cheol Kim
"Kim is a high-ranking member of Kang's nuclear weapons team. He is one of the few men in the Asian-Pacific theater with the background necessary for developing the integrated targeting and trajectory systems required for an intercontinental ballistic missile. Kim's presence on the team means the threat of Song's nuclear capability extends across the entire globe."


Kim is located in the Northern Province of North Korea, along with the Spades, but he and the other Hearts can only be verified after the completion of the Ace of Diamonds contract.

Kim's exact location is at the NK Outpost, which is south-south-west of Tenement Ruins and east of Sinuiju Farms. To reach him normally you need to drive through the Chinese occupied region of the ruins until you reach a dirt road which spirals up towards a small cliff. Once you reach the top there will be a small outpost with a small bunker, two Sungri Scouts, and a small amount of regular KPA soldiers. Turn right at this outpost and continue along to the outpost where the HVT is located. Alternatively, after entering the ruins and before entering the Chinese territory you can drive to the right, past a large ditch and approach the small outpost from behind.

The outpost itself is filled with only a small amount of elite KPA soldiers mostly armed with light machine guns, though there is a large, tough bunker nearby that will infinitely spawn elite soldiers to harass you. Kim himself is armed with an SMG.

He has a bounty of $75,000 alive or $37,500 dead.

Subject: 9 of Hearts, Nam-cheol Kim

Peng's aide de camp Captain Leu just called me to let me know they've got a handle on the current whereabouts of Dr. Nam-cheol Kim, the 9 of Hearts. He's hiding out somewhere south of the tenement ruins. Thanks to this guy, Song's nukes have intercontinental delivery systems. Lots of governments in the West would like to get a hold of this guy.
