Next mission Operation: Silent Ace

Operation Desert Dragon is the first mission in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear: Black Thorn.

Mission objective:

An unknown terrorist group has taken over the Japanese Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela during a party being held for visiting Japanese dignitaries. Your mission is to subdue the terrorists and rescue all of the hostages.


John Clark - The terrorists have separated the hostages into 2 groups. It's important to take out the terrorists guarding both groups at the same time, so that they won't be able to alert each other. These hostages are all prominent political leaders, so be careful. Losing any one of them would cause all sorts of trouble.

Kevin Sweeney - This mission reminds me of the operation at the Japanese embassy in Peru back in '97, when the Embassy was held for 4 months. With luck, this will be resolved a lot faster than that.

The Embassy is a two-floor building with a basement and an enclosed backyard garden. Terrorists are holding hostages in the basement and the Japanese Ambassador is being held separately on the first floor. Their locations are marked on the map. Because of the potential repercussions of this matter, it will be especially important not to alert the terrorists.
