Firefly Rain is the sixth mission conducted by the Ghost Team.
Scott Mitchell: I don't think anyone was expecting what you uncovered. That amount of military-grade hardware shouldn't have been a surprise, and that's got people worried. NSA, CIA, and DIA are swapping a lot of data right now, and a picture's emerging. Prugova's part of a hardline factions inside Russia called the Raven's Rock druzhina. We're still working connections, but this thing runs deep. In the mean time, Langley says Raven's Rock is moving a top-grade system into the hands of some truly bad people. I'll tell you up front, this op is a bad idea. You know it, I know it... and we'll do it anyway. We'll be deep inside Russian territory with zero margin for error. Ops don't get any higher risk than this. But the risk this gear poses if it slips through is even greater. So let's make damn sure we do it the right way.
Lt. Kirk Graham: If the people behind that base are the Raven's Rock faction Prugova mentioned, we've got trouble. There's not much on them - they're mostly young, rich, and ambitious, and they've got their fingers in every pie from government to military to mafia. They're also the ones pushing the arms deal from inside the Kremlin.
SMSgt. Marcus Kelso: You've got to see the battlefield to own it. Your NVG gear gives you a clear look under low-light or obscured conditions. Just don't stare into the sun with 'em on.
The fewer Russian regulars you engage at close range - and the more your teammates know about your target selection - the better. Sniper rifle with an OTR sensor is the way to go here.
