This is Bandit One starting

prep sequence, cleared for takeoff.

Full engine start.

This is Bandit One.

l'm easing her up.

-Are we transmitting yet?

-Not yet.

Rodgers, Orin, how's the perimeter?

lt's clear.

Bandit One receiving signal.

Approaching target vector.

Transmitting to base now, sir.

-The place is secure.

-Good. Now we keep it that way.

-Take the left flank, Hargs.


Was that him?

l don't know. Let's check it out.

-Talk to me.

-We got the bogey on the run, sir.

Which way?

Rodgers, which way?

-Which way, Rodgers?

-Cannot identify, sir.

ls he jamming our frequency?

-Looks like it, sir.

-You're supposed to be jamming his.

This is Bandit One,

homing in on target vicinity.

Hightop. Hightop!

l want you to hold this position.

Nobody gets in. You got that?

Got it, sir.

Closing to zero mark center.

Still on approach vector.

Sir, sir, he's here.

The Painter's here, sir!


Over target signal.

Target is lit. l'm going in.

Got it. Locking on. Flares away.

Too easy, Naish.

Way too easy.

Damn it.

Training mission is over,

and the Painter does it again.

Returning to base now.

What are you doing here?

Wait here. Be quiet.

Where's your mommy

and daddy, huh?

Okay, come on.


Thank you for organizing this

in such short notice, everyone.

As l'm sure you can appreciate,

we've had a serious situation...

...come up over the last 1 2 hours

in southern Russia...

...which requires

our immediate attention.

General lgor Zaysan... iron fist from the Brezhnev days,

Afghanistan, the southern states.

Over the last few years

he resurfaced in Chechnya.

He made good use of the rebels,

considering he's a Russian.

He put together a new army,

new weapons.

And now it seems,

quite possibly, a nuke.

Yesterday, he led a band

of his rebels across the Terek River...

...and captured

the Kamshev nuclear plant.

Now, three of the four reactors... Kamshev have been


The fuel rods have been removed

from the fourth reactor...

...but it is capable of going online

if it is re-cored.

This would appear to be

a Russian problem, Mr. Tensor.

Please, general,

let us make no mistake.


...lgor Zaysan

is a very dangerous man.

We have been tracking him

for a number of years.

His hatred for the Kremlin

has become a complete obsession.

What's this?

-What are you doing with them?

-They are prisoners.

They surrendered when we moved

into the plant.

Where are you taking them?

Exactly my point.

lf he is capable

of re-coring this reactor...

...he is capable of detonating it.

That is to say, potentially

1 00,000 deaths in an instant.

And a few hundred thousand more

when the winds...

...send the fallout over an area

the size of Texas.

We have proof

he's capable of all this?

Amanda, pull up the Flintov picture.

This surveillance photograph

was taken in North Korea.

The Asian is John Lee Kim.

He's the ace of hearts in our deck

of most-wanted arms dealers.

The man with him is Andre Flintov...

...Zaysan's second in command.

Now, it seems that Flintov

has plutonium on his shopping list.

What has Uncle Kim got for sale?

Fuel rods from a failed

North Korean reactor.

We have to destroy

the Kamshev plant...

...before Zaysan re-cores it.

-ls the package moving?


Will they know what's in it?

The Americans will have

their intelligence, and they'll act on it.

You'll see.

We are not in the business

of doing Russia's dirty work.

lt's not just the Russians,

there are seven scientists...

...from the private sector

working at Kamshev...
