Arctic Flare is the second mission in the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear.
Japanese terrorist group "Kawakiri" have seized a PetroMech oil tanker off the coast of Japan and are threatening to destroy it with explosives. Your mission is to board the vessel and neutralize the aggressors before they can trigger the explosive devices.
John Clark - Good work in New York. Intelligence is still trying to figure out how a small-time, regional group like the Islamic Vanguard managed to launch an operation in the States. It's pretty obvious they had help - we just don't know from where.
The people holding the tanker are rabid anti-nuclear types. They won't hesitate to blow the ship if they suspect you're on board. If that happens, the resulting oil slick will foul the plumbing of at least three nearby seawater-cooled reactors and bring down half of Japan's power grid. You'll have to hit them hard and fast.
The hostages are held in two groups in the stern of the ship. The leader is on the bridge - he's the one who'll blow the ship if he finds out you're on board. You'll be inserted near the bow to minimize the likelihood of detection. No heartbeat surveillance this time, I'm afraid - you'll have to locate the hostiles the old fashioned way.
