The Spy Hunter, Part III

From the mission brief:

Operation CHASTISE – Strategic Aims
Subvert NybbleComms’ next missile test, replacing the inert test warhead with a live one and targeting the BATCAVE. The net effect will be the physical destruction of SIBHOD, and the discrediting of arch-rival NybbleComms as a business competitor for allowing a test firing to go so badly wrong… 

Yellow Sun Heavy Industries have been playing catchup ever since Donald Burgess was recruited by the Sinister Icy Black Hand Of Death. Now, at last, a chance has arisen to strike decisively and put an end to Yellow Sun’s two biggest threats. Do you have the skills to carry out the mission successfully? Click here to find out!
