The Heart of
In Dade County, the
CIA Bureau Chief
has gone renegade. He has gained control over drug traffic into
Florida. With plenty of cash, he has corrupted the local law enforcement
officials. He has control over the cops, the Customs officials, and two
Coast Guard installations. He even seems to exert enormous influence over
activity at Homestead Airforce Base.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff want to take him
out. But how?
They canít send in the Marines. This guy
has his own battalions and nobody wants to see uniformed Americans fight
other uniformed Americans on our own territory.
The only solution is a secret operation. You are "recruited"
(coerced actually) to lead a commando raid into Florida.
They recruit you from Krome Detention Center. In handcuffs, you are thrown
into a cargo plane for deportation. On board are a bunch of desperate
Caribbean misfits. These guys (and gals) have different skills, different
degrees of courage -- sharing only a criminal past and a hazy future. They
speak various forms of English, Spanish and Creole. From them, you select
You are given a high speed drug boat
hidden in the swamps of a deserted Bahamian out island. Posing as
smugglers, your crew has to get your boat undetected into the heavily
protected base of this CIA druglord, and eliminate his headquarters.
A shootout in an abandoned marina. Your secret fuel dock in the
swamps is attacked by punk Bahamian thieves. These aren't your enemy's
men, just small time pirates who want your premium gasoline. And maybe
your boat. Even using laser-sighted weapons, it is hard to shoot the
thieves without hitting the drums of gas that they are hiding behind. When
you hit the gas it explodes, which is pretty, but decreases your fuel
supply and limits the range of your boat in ongoing segments.
Lots of boat chase sequences. A run across hull-shredding coral
shoals. Some boats are faster than yours. Some boats draw more water. You
race with one eye on the rearview mirror and another on the depth meter.
At one point, the Coast Guard chases you with a jet powered catamaran
which can outrun you in the straightaways but cannot turn as fast. If you
are clever, your last-minute U Turn leaves him spread across 100 yards of
A strafing attack by an Air Force drug plane. You stand on the
pounding deck, & aim a shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile. With SAM-Cam
you steer the missile through the planes defenses (chaff, evasive
maneuvers, anti-missile-missile) to knock out plane and its turncoat
Wading through chest-high water, pushing the boat up a night river.
(The boat's engine is too noisy.) You must avoid the searchlights and
machine guns of defensive emplacements by silently wading under mangrove
growth. Must confront sinkholes, quicksand, and most of all hungry
alligators. Latter must be killed with rubber-powered spear gun or with
knife to avoid making noise that will turn the machine guns and
searchlights on you.
Lots more chase/combat/stealth in the Carib & So Fla &
Everglades.. Any ideas? Maybe some kind of urban naval battle?
