Storm an enemy radar and engage targets of opportunity before extracting.

Copy the pbo file(s) to .\ArmA\MPMissions (installation) folder or to .\ArmA\Missions.

- EVAC chopper and CAS may have to be called several times with the \Request_Evac and \Confirm_Evac or \Request_CAS and \Confirm_CAS commands for it to find its path.
- Red chain may appear at the beginning of mission. It will disappear after 30 seconds tops. If not, launch the mission again.
- A voice.pbo is normally needed with GLII.sqf; if you don't have it, an error message may appear once. Click on it, the mission will go on as it should.
- Choose a relatively flat location for chopper extraction. Don't abort the extraction once the chopper has started its landing approach.
