BONUS: Bribe the Chinese artillery officer ($50 000 required)

The ContractEdit

The contract is worth $45 000, deduct $50 000 if the officer is bribed as part of the bonus condition.


  • Completing this contract with the bonus will actually cost the player $5 000; as the contract value is $45 000 but the bonus cost the player $50 000 for the two artillery barrage support items; as part of the bonus condition
  • It is possible to complete this contract without killing or destroy South Korean forces. The NK forces at the garrison will eventually destroy the opposing SK forces. The SK forces have soldiers and K1025 Scouts, but the NK forces have soldiers, RPG soldiers and T-54 tanks.
