Operation Cold Dagger is the second mission in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield.
Terrorists have taken hostages in the village of Lamoura, Switzerland. Among them are several delegates to the current IMF conference in Geneva. Swiss security forces have sealed off the area in preparation for your arrival. Your mission is to liberate the IMF delegates.
John Clark - Normally we'd leave something like this to the Swiss authorities, but the profile of the hostages is high enough that we've been called in. There were at least five IMF conference delegates present in the village when it was stormed. I say "were" because we don't know how many are left alive. The terrorists hit the local bank first, then rounded up hostages when they realized they were pinned down. They've issued a few demands, but they haven't identified themselves.
Something about all this stinks, but figuring out what is Intel's job, not yours. Yours is to go in there, clear out that village and make sure both the delegates and the locals who've been taken hostage come out in one piece.
Kevin Sweeney - There's something odd about this operation. At first, the terrorists seemed unaware of the identity of their captives, as though they'd been planning to hit the town anyway and the presence of the IMF officials was a lucky accident. Apparently the delegates were taking a day's ski trip away from the conference in Geneva. They'd have been better off if they'd kept their minds on business. Still, there's something here that doesn't make any sense. There's certainly nothing else in Lamoura worth mounting an operation like this over.
Your mission is to liberate the IMF delegates. The hostages are being held in two separate places marked on your map and are under heavy guard. The terrorists have been alerted to police presence and snipers are probably already waiting for you, so watch out for open areas.
