Noble Tempest is the third mission conducted by the Ghost Team.
Scott Mitchell: The black box you recovered in Zambia was well-traveled. DIA managed to pull the nav data from it, and came back with hits in Nigeria. There's been a lot of activity in the Niger Delta recently. Turns out CIA already had an asset in-country to monitor a PMC operating in the region. Watchgate says they're providing security for oil companies, but it looks like that's not all they're up to. These guys are muscling in on refineries, running ops into local villages... they're destabilizing an already shaky area. We want to know why. CIA's agent, Officer Dan Sykes, delivered an intel package on the situation, and then went dark. Langley's tried to re-establish contact. So far, no luck. They're assuming the worst. We're going in to locate, secure, and extract Officer Sykes, whatever his condition.
Lt. Kirk Graham: Oil companies in the region have hired Watchgate to keep the locals out of the way of their oil operations. Looks like they took that as a blank check to treat the region as their playground, and to start funneling guns to people like Dede Macaba.
SMSgt. Marcus Kelso: In base mode, this is a low-IR signature UAV. Use it to ID enemy positions from on high, or to pinpoint and lock in targets. It's your eyes in the sky.
You want to improve your aim, get yourself a stable firing platform like this. You're giving up mobility, but you're trading it for accuracy.
You're going up against pros, but the PMC boys have gotten sloppy pushing civilians around. It might get pretty heavy, because that refinery's easy to defend. I'd go with an LMG with a scope, and back it up with a silenced carbine.
- This is the first time Hunter Team called up an air strike from two fighters (call-sign: Wolverine One-Five) out of the Navy's amphibious assault ship, U.S.S. Wasp, as it was seen in the NSA satellite when Mitchell was using it to monitor the Ghosts.
