Tu-chin Cho, also known as the Three of Diamonds, is a light weapons trainer in the KPA in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.

ExOps Bio[edit | edit source]

Name: Tu-chin Cho
"Lieutenant Cho is a specialist in light weapons training. He supervises light weapon purchases from foreign governments and trains the sergeants who then go on to train the army. He is well trained, served in the DMZ for over 12 years, and is considered highly dangerous."

Overview[edit | edit source]

The e-mail concerning Cho's location was sent to Fiona in Russian, which was then translated and revealed that the Russian Mafia had been making deals with Lieutenant Cho southeast of Kaesong, a site he is apparently often found at. More specifically Cho is found halfway on the road connecting the Propaganda Village and the DMZ (look for the "40" on the PDA map). When you arrive at the location you will see that there is a very large battle going on here between the AN and KPA forces.

The North Koreans have two T-54 tanks which are engaging four AN soldiers, one of which is carrying an Anti-Tank missile launcher, accompanied by an Officer and an AN M3 APC. The AN soldiers will most likely destroy the T-54s and then move on to engage the rest of the KPA soldiers located at the base of the hill near the houses. This area is guarded by three M1955 Artillery pieces and two small underground tunnels which will continuously spawn soldiers, some of which are using the RPG, with a couple of heavy machine gun nests guarding the tunnels. After these threats are eliminated, the AN forces will move up the hill to where Cho is located.

This area contains a large underground bunker which will spawn more T-54 tanks along with some ZSU-57 Anti-Air tanks. Cho himself is located behind the bunker behind some sandbags and next to a SA-8 Anti-Air and is armed with a LMG. If the player wants to verify him alive, they will have to ignore the allies and go straight to him.

Email message[edit | edit source]

Subject: Lieutenant Tu-chin Cho, the 3 of Diamonds
Looks like Josef is helping us out again. I just received a report in Russian from some mafia operatives. I had the boys here translate it, and it discusses a deal with the Russian Mob made with Lieutenant Tu-chin Cho, the 3 of Diamonds, southeast of Kaesong. Apparently he's often at that site. Maybe you should check it out. This is the guy responsible for light weapons training in General Chang's outfit. Time to show him what someone trained in air strikes and mass destruction can do. :)

GSRN Report[edit | edit source]

Upon capturing/verifying the Three of Diamonds, GSRN Trucks will broadcast the following report:

"Allied forces this morning captured Lieutenant Tu-chin Cho, the Three of Diamonds, and General Chang's small arms specialist. Allied intelligence helped make the action a quick and bloodless one."
