This situation is going to have a very fast turnaround, so I hope you're up to it.
This is Vladimir Arastov, a Soviet nuclear physicist who's been on Washington's most wanted list for fifteen years.Responsible for many significant Soviet nuclear developments, Moscow has kept him very close. In fact, he's on his first outing from Moscow for twenty years, and the news is he wants to defect.
He's scheduled to visit this power plant tomorrow night as a part of a scientific advisory tour.It's the closest he's ever likely to get to Western soil and he's contacted Washington with a plan to get him out. This is where we come in.
We are to make an air strike on the power plant to create a diversion for Arastov.He reckons that in all the confusion he can escape by road along this route.Whilst he's running, we then concentrate on the Northwest, doing our best to draw Soviet attention away from him.He'll be in contact with us via a scrambled radio link so if anything goes wrong we can improvise.
Washington has assured us his plan is solid, but I'm not so sure.They want him so badly they're prepared to go with it, after all, it's probably the only chance they'll have to get him. Of course, Arastov has picked a fine time to do this.This is the latest intelligence information on Soviet armored units in the area, apparently they're on maneuvers.
This is the location of a Soviet advanced warning station which covers this sector.It's your job to get in there and disable it.
