- "There has been increased covert activity around our military bases. The Pentagon is worried. People nosing around military bases make the brass nervous. Could lead to some sort of attack, or the theft of secrets or something. It may be nothing, and it may be serious. The President thinks it's serious, so that's all that matters. Check out these reports and find out who's behind it."
Note that this Mission Set shares more than a little similarity with the Broken Arrow Mission Set. The first mission in both sets will always start with a nearly-identical introduction from the CIA Chief, making it tricky to identify one or the other straight away.
The following plots occur as part of a Stealth Fighter Heist Mission Set:
- Data Crime: The enemy acquires an Airbase Operations Plan through the AARPA Computer Network, to discover the location of the Stealth Fighter and the best time to strike.
- Blackmail of an experienced Fighter Pilot who is familiar with the plane itself - presumably coercing him to pilot the plane out to safety.
- Theft of the Stealth Fighter itself from a Secret Hangar.
