The Defender of Hwangbo is a nickname given to one of the members of Dung Hwangbo's security force while he was hiding inside Song Tower. The soldier flew an Mi-35 Gunship, and took off from his landing pad after Hwangbo's location was destroyed by a Bunker Buster Bomb by an ExOps mercenary. He covered Hwangbo from the air, but was promptly blown out of the sky by AN anti-air strikes. His death rendered him unable to protect Hwangbo and the mercenary escaped with Hwangbo.
- This is the first time the infamous Mi-35 Gunship is seen in the series.
