MGS The Phantom Pain Traitors' Caravan Mission 16

Pinpointed escort unit’s estimated route from an intel file

The intel file can be found inside an enemy outpost at map mark 14. It is in a small green tent. Once collected, it shows you the estimated movement route of the cargo truck and its escort.

Identified escort unit (armored vehicle)

This three-vehicle unit stops at the outposts. It is suggested not to engage them in combat while they are on the move. I’ve managed to find them at the #16 outpost. Note: Remember if you decide to take them down, you won’t alarm them if they can’t see you. As you shoot one missile move away, then shoot again, then move away. This way, they don’t get moving.

Identified transport truck

The transport truck is usually between two armored vehicles.

Extracted transport truck

You’ll need the Cargo 2 upgrade for the Fulton device for this case.

Eliminated the Skulls

Once you are about to steal the transport truck a Skull unit will show up. This is where D-Walker is extremely handy. The fact it has a high fire rate and fast movement makes it perfect against Skulls. There are four of them you’ll have to take down. If you have not upgraded D-Walker’s main weapon ammo storage yet, be careful, as you can run out of bullets rather fast.

Extracted the transport truck driver

Wait for the escort to come to any of the outposts and do not sound the alarm.

Listened to all conversations between transport truck driver and outpost/guard post soldiers

Int-scope is great for this. The escort stops at enemy outposts, where you can complete this task.

Extracted 3 Zero Risk Security soldiers

This unit of 4 soldiers and one 4 seat vehicle is on the crossroads east of Nova Braga Airport, on the projected escape route.
