Mr. Juho Antikainen, going by the nickname Spede, is 37-year old man from Helsinki, Finland. A lieutenant in the Finnish army reserve, he works for the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a military contractor. He leads a team specialized in extraction, and has worked for the Ministry for 3 years. He and four others were sent to Chernarus to evacuate the Finnish Consul General, Mr. Antero Hartikainen and his wife Mrs. Aino Hartikainen from Novodmitrovsk. During their pre-flight briefing, Spede and his team were informed of a serious outbreak in Chernarus of an unknown origin, a sort of a "rage virus". They were told that communications with the Consulate were gone, and that they will most likely have no further intel on the situation on the ground before they arrive, and no help from the local officials.
2 hours later:
Preparing to land at a nearby airport, the pilots reported they saw a tracer bullet or two flying in the air, and told they want to abort the mission. "We don't leave our guys behind", Spede said, and ordered the pilot to proceed to land. Just as he had said that, Spede heard a loud bang, as one of the motors of their gray painted Learjet surged. The airplane made a sudden turn to the left, and four seconds later plunged in to the sea, cartwheeling and sinking, taking all passengers and crew beneath the waves, alongside their equipment.
Except one man.
Wearing nothing but his jeans, Spede swims to the shore, exhausted and thirsty. He now has to survive, locate the Consul General and his wife, and wait for help.
