Military Hardware in GTA 5


Military Hardware is a setup mission for the Paleto Score heist in GTA 5. This mission can be done as protagonists Michael De Santa or Trevor Philips.


In this setup mission, the player has to take out the soldiers guarding the military convoy and take the truck back to the meth lab.



At the start of this setup mission, the player will receive a message from Lester Crest with information that the preparations for the Paleto Score heist mission have been done, except for the military truck. The truck will be seen on the map. To complete this mission with a gold medal, the player has to take out the first vehicle with a sticky bomb by placing it on the route of the convoy and setting it off when the first vehicle drives over the bomb. The guards will then attack the player. After taking out all the guards(with headshots for the gold medal) the player has to get into the truck and drive it back to Trevor’s office (the meth lab) where the heist was planned and park it at the yellow marker.



The mission ends when the player walks out of the vehicle after parking it.
