OPERATION INTENSE ANGEL

DELIMITED TENEBROUS BRIEFING 001

I. SITUATIONAL PROFILE - INTELLIGENCE SUMMARY

BACKLIGHT in conjunction with the National Reconnaisance Office (NRO) has located a secret operational center for the Sudombian Irregular Forces (ISF). The ISF, controlled by the Deneraran drug cartel, employs metahumans and hypertechnological applications in order to dominate the drug trade on the north coast of South America.

The hideout is located in the jungle-covered Makaparima Mountains south of the coast, in the Upper Guanajay region near the wilderness border with Brazil and Venezuela.

II. PRIMARY MISSION OBJECTIVE

Your mission is to destroy the physical resources of this enclave, disrupt any operations, and eliminate any resistance.

III. SECONDARY MISSION OBJECTIVE

The purpose of the enclave is currently unknown. Documents or ELINT may be on-site and should be obtained if possible.

IV. MISSION PARAMETERS

Care should be taken as only seventy-five miles away, to the north is a prison camp controlled by the Sudombian government and staffed by the regular Sudombian military. Avoid all contact with regular military forces.

Anti-Deneraran mercenary forces backed by Venezuela have been active in the area, according to satellite information. They are a potential asset to this mission but should not be wasted as their eventual success is in the interest of the U.S.

V. MATERIEL

A customized Boeing Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche armed reconnaissance helicopter outfitted for covert insertion has been activated at Barksdale Air Force Base. (Transport to Barksdale is arranged via helicopter from civilian facilities in New Orleans.) The aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is currently deployed in the West Atlantic and will provide refueling to the helicopter while the mission is in progress.

One Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) for communication via secure channels when pickup is required. An attachment allowing interface with computer systems has also been provided. The Sudombian military monitors radio frequencies in the area and so radio silence is recommended until extraction.
