The Cartel pretty much runs Bolivia. El Sueño is a very dangerous man and his hunger for money leads him to bring the cartel the place where there is lots of coca. He has bribed the goverment which gives the cartel the freedom to do anything they want.They also have the local military, UNIDAD, on their payroll.
Equipment and Personnel Edit
Since the Cartel is powerful,they have vehicles like Humvees etc.Their equipment is modern but they don't have tech like The Ghosts.Most of the forces seem to be former mercenaries.
