Operation Silent Ace is the second mission in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear: Black Thorn.
An unknown terrorist group has seized an Italian cruise ship anchored near Tunis, Tunisia. High explosives have been detected on board, and two passengers have been taken hostage. A night assault is Rainbow's only chance to safely extricate the hostages. Your mission is to disarm the bomb and liberate the captives.
John Clark - The Rei di Tutto is a 100-meter luxury cruise ship designed for an elite clientele. We've located two bombs aboard the ship. Both have been placed on the third deck, with one in the ship's casino and the other in the bar at the other end of the vessel. They're both well guarded. The hostages seem to be held somewhere below the main decks of the ship. Get in, disable the bombs, and then get those hostages out alive. The terrorists have started posting their ransom demands for each passenger, and if we don't wrap this up quickly, matters could get extremely complicated.
Kevin Sweeney - With the information we've got, the resemblance between a 1985 cruise ship attack and the one we're looking at now is too close to ignore. We still don't know who these guys are or what they want, but they're well organised and well equipped, and they seem to have done their homework on how to tackle a ship like this one. Tangos are holding hostages on this ship, and threaten to bio it up if their demands are not met. It is up to you to save the hostages and the ship.
The assault team will infiltrate the harbor next to the cruise ship under cover of darkness. The liner has three entry ramps, which can then be used for boarding. The terrorists on the deck should be vulnerable to snipers. Make sure you synchronize your attacks on the 3 objectives since the terrorists are making frequent radio checkups. The hostages must be escorted back to the rendezvous area without casualties.
