SNAKE EYED HIS surrounding and double-checked them. with the map grid that appeared on the Codec, which was strapped around his wrist. The cargo dock was in a hollowed-out cavern that was supported by metal latticework. There was an empty berth at which government supply ships could dock. The approximately seventy-five-foot platform was dotted with large shipping crates, which were scattered across the space all the way to the freight elevator. The rest of the facility probably was built into the ground as well as in structures above the surface. Liquid had disappeared into the elevator, so that was obviously the only access to the surface level.
Snake drew the Mark 23 Model 0 SOCOM from its holster and checked the chamber. Locked and loaded. In Snake’s opinion, there was no pistol with better accuracy and resilience than the .45-caliber SOCOM. The laser-aiming module was particularly nice. Ironically, in a perfect world Snake would never have to draw the thing. If everything went as smoothly as possible, not a single shot would be fired.

  Fat chance.

  Snake holstered the gun. It was time to make his move. He slipped around the water filtration tank and crawled under the large pipe running along the wall of cavern. Some kind of vermin droppings lined the perimeter, and Snake frowned.

  “Colonel, I see animal feces. Are there rats here?” he asked.

  “Negative, Snake,” Campbell replied. “We already checked with vermin control; those are droppings form brown mice. They’re harmless; they won’t bite. Apparently, everyone who works in the facility is used to them. Be alert. We’re picking up three- on, four guards patrolling the cargo dock. Where did Liquid go?”

  “He popped into the elevator. It’s amazing. Other than the difference in skin tone, the guy could be my twin.”

  “Snake, he’s going to be a formidable enemy. His code name is the same as yours, so you’ll be evenly matched, more or less.”

  “Yeah, but it will be the solid versus the liquid.”

  “Right,” Snake said. He continued to study the Codec ground plan when he heard the sound of boots nearby. He froze and peered over the pipe to see one of the guards. The man was mask and was armed with a FAMAS assault rifle. The guard moved to the edge of the dock, looked across the water, and sneezed. Snake crept behind him, said “Gesundheit,” and executed a silent stranglehold. The guard’s neck snapped, and his weight drooped limply into Snake’s arms. Snake dragged the body behind the filtration tank and left it there. He heard more small space between the tank’s outside lip and the platform. A solider must have heard something, for he was walking carefully toward the edge of the dock. Snake rolled out from under the tank on the opposite side, stood, and stealthily inched his way around so that he was behind the guard.

  Another stranglehold, another dead guard.

  Snake dragged the corpse behind the tank, searched the man, and found a pack of commercially made American cigarettes.
Yuck.

  Snake preferred a nicotine-based mix of chemicals and plant leaves that he had made especially for him. They were also somewhat smokeless, which was an asset on a mission. He’d been temped to swallow a pack before leaving the submarine but hadn’t relished the thought of regurgitating them upon arrival. No, for smokes he would have to depend on the usual On Site Procurement, no mater how awful the brand that he found was.
He took the cigarettes and slung the rifle over his arm.

  “Snake? Naomi Hunter here.”

  “Yes, Doctor?”

  “Just reminding you that the genome soldiers have highly developed sense of hearing and vision. They’ll come running at the slightest noise. I suspect they’re equipped with the same antifreezing peptide I gave you. ”

  “That’s not going to stop me from putting them on ice.”
The colonel interrupted. “Snake, five minutes ago we launched a diversion to keep them from paying too much attention to what’s happening at sea. Two F-16’s took off from Galena and are headed your way. The terrorists’ radar should have already picked them up.”

  Could that have been what Liquid Snake meant about swatting down flies?

  Time to move forward. Snake moved to the edge of the tank and then darted to the nearest crate. He stopped, listened, moved to the opposite edge, and dashed once again to the next closest crate. He continued in that way, sprinting from container to container, gaining yardage toward the end of the platform. When he was at the penultimate crate, he dropped to the ground and peered around the edge at floor level.

  The elevator had just descended and opened. The third and fourth guards were patrolling from left to right directly in front of it, on a path some six feet away from the last crate. There was no way to sneak up behind the men, so Snake waited until they turned and began walking away from him. He bolted across the floor to crate closest to the elevator door. There he waited a few seconds for the guards to turn again and walk slowly toward storm. He surprised them by stepping out from behind the crate and standing directly in front of them.

  “Merry Christmas,” Snake said as he delivered two powerhouse punches, left and then right, into the guards’ faces. The soldiers plopped to the floor. “I forgot to tell you- Christmas is early this year.”

  Snake took hold of one man’s arms and dragged his body around the crate. He repeated the process with the other guard. As soon as the limp figures were stuffed tidily into a corner, a siren sounded throughout the complex.

  “Great,” Snake said. “Either they know I’m here, or something else is going on. Colonel, I’m taking the elevator.”
He stepped into the open cubicle and pressed the button for the surface level. The ride took less than ten seconds. The doors opened to a massive space, the focal point being a Mi-24D Hind-D gunship residing in the middle of a landing pad. Snake looked up and saw that the roof- a sliding slab of reinforced metal- was retracting so that the helicopter could take off. Blocks of snow fell in from above; Snake could see that it was snowing heavily outside.
He moved out of the elevator and slipped along the wall and into the shadows, avoiding the sight lines of two guards at the end of the platform. He crouched in the shadows as a female voice he didn’t recognize spoke. “Snake, weather conditions are bad. A blizzard is hitting your position just about now.”

  “Who’s that?”

  “Oh, sorry. Mei Ling here. I’ll be monitoring the weather as well as your communications devices.”

  The door had retracted completely, and the entire room lit up like Time Square. Guards moved out of the way as the rotor on the Hind began to rotate, building to speed in seconds.

  “Colonel, there’s a Russian gunship here in a state- of –the –art heliport. And someone’s crazy enough to fly the thing in this weather.”

  A good pilot could handle a Hind-D in a lizard. The machine was know for tis agility and speed. Snake had heard that it was the most difficult combat helicopter to shoot down. Its offensive capabilities were formidable as well, as it possessed a Phalanga-P antitank missile complex and machine guns.

  The landing lights around the helicopter rotated in place and pointed upward, creating a tunnel of beams to guide the pilot off the helipad. Even through the beast was large for an assault chopper, it gently as the pilot fought the strong wind, but whoever was flying the vehicle knew what he was doing. After a moment, the chopper was up, had moved out of the open roof, and was gone.
Snake took a moment to light one of the cigarettes. As expected, the commercial stuff was horrible and nearly made him cough. But bad tobacco was better than no tobacco, so…

  Campbell said, “Snake?”

  “Yeah?”

  “Liquid Snake fancies himself an expert pilot. He was a big ego and probably insist on flying it in lieu of anyone else. I suspect he’s after our fighters. That means the diversion is working.”

  Mei Ling commented, “I’m surprised our pilots can fly in that storm.”

  Campbell answered. “The Air Force in Alaska is trained to fly in these conditions. They’re some of the best of the best, so to speak.”

  “Hey, guy, I don’t mean to interrupt this lively discussion, but dose someone want to tell me where I’m supposed to go?”

  Dr. Hunter spoke. “Snake, the DARPA chief, Anderson, was injected with the same GPS- transmitting nanomachines as you, so you should be able to track his signal with the Codec. We’re not picking him up yet, but you should be able to once you’re farther inside the complex.”

  He checked the device around his wrist and noted a faint signal.
“He’s on a different level,” Snake said. “And he’s a lot farther inland. I’ve got to get into the bowels of this place.”

  Mei Ling said. “Then you’ll have to cross the heliport, Snake. We see there’s a lot of genome soldier activity in the place so watch you’re a-, uhm, your back.”

  Snake grinned.

  “There’s another large space north of you. Looks like some type of hangar. You’ll have to cross that as well to get into the main facility. It’s crawling with guards, too.”

  Great.

  “Piece of cake,” Snake said.
 
Chapter 4
Snake环视周围,再次与绕在他手腕上的CODEC上所显示的核实了一下。这个货运码头处于一个人工挖掘用金属架子支撑的岩洞里,有一个供政府给养船停泊的船位。接近七十五尺的平台排布着船运集装箱,贯穿整个空间,一直延伸到货运电梯。剩下的设施应该是建在地面上和上层结构中的,从Liquid离开的方式来看,唯一的通往地面的方式就是那台电梯。
Snake从皮质枪袋里拔出手枪,检验了一下弹匣——装弹完全,并且拉上了保险。在他看来,没有哪把手枪在准确性和弹性方面能胜过.45口径的SOCOM了。激光瞄准器也是相当的不错。实际上,Snake并不需要带这些东西,假如一切如预期的顺利,他甚至不需要击发任意的一发子弹。
好机会。Snake将枪插回枪袋,绕过净水器,从沿着洞墙的管道下爬过。一些小动物的粪便在那儿围成环状,Snake不禁皱了皱眉头。
上校,我看见了一些动物粪便,这里有老鼠吗?”
是的,Snake”上校答道,“我查阅了一下资料,这些是棕鼠的粪便。他们是无害的,不会咬人。很显然,在这里的人已经习惯了。注意,有三个……不,是四个守卫在这个货刚巡逻。Liquid跑哪里去了?”
“他进了电梯。很有趣,要不是肤色不一样,不然他简直就是我的孪生兄弟。”
“Snake,他可是个可怕的敌人,拥有和你一样的代号,绝对是与你旗鼓相当的对手。”
“的确。”
Snake掉头继续研究CODEC上的地图,突然,他听见不断临近的靴子的声音。他站住身子,越过水管望去,看到了其中一个士兵。这个士兵身着雪地迷彩服和羊毛头罩,配备了FAMAS自动步枪,他走到货港的边缘,探头向水面望去,然后打了个喷嚏。Snake蹑足来到他身后,对他低语道:“祝你好运(Gesundheit)。”然后悄无声息地扭断了他的脖子。守卫的颈骨发出一声脆响,他的身子便没有生气地瘫软在了Snake的臂弯里。Snake将他拖到净水器后面藏了起来。很快他又听到了另一阵脚步声,于是他窜到一块金属机件的下面,蜷缩在净水器外延与平台的缝隙间。那个士兵貌似听到了什么动静,小心翼翼的走到了货港的边缘。Snake从另一端翻滚出来,站起身,然后隐秘地挪向那个守卫。
又一次锁喉,又多了个牺牲者。
Snake将尸体藏到水箱后面,在他的兜里搜索了一下,发现了一包美国产的香烟。
不错。
Snake喜欢一种他独创的用基于尼古丁的化学品与植物叶子制成的烟。不仅如此,这种东西还是无烟的,正适合任务时使用。他本来尝试着从潜艇上带上一些,但是他没有预料到登陆前的那一阵激流。不过没什么,经历过无数“就地取得”的任务,他已经习惯了任何烂牌子的烟。
他收起香烟,将步枪提在手中。
“Snake,,这里是Naomi。”

“收到,博士。”
“我记得不久前曾提醒你基因士兵们都有高度灵敏的视觉和听觉,一点点的轻微响动都能引起他们的警觉。而且我猜想他们也注射了和你一样的防冻肽。”
“就算这样我也能让他们好好凉快一下。”
上校插嘴道:“Snake,5分钟以前我们从格丽纳(Galena)起飞了两架F-16来牵制他们的注意力,好让不会太在意海上的情况。现在恐怖分子的雷达因该已经捕获它们了。”
难道这就是Liquid Snake所说的“拍苍蝇”?
该行动了,Snake来到水箱的边缘,然后闪身到了最近的火响。他停了下来,倾听四周的动静,然后再一次窜到了下一个货箱。他如此反复,从一个箱子倒下一个,离平台的边缘只有一步之遥。
电梯停了下来,然后门打开了,第三和第四个守卫从左边向右经过电梯,穿过离最后一个箱子大约6英尺的一条小径。再没有从他们身后潜过去的余地,于是他等待了几秒钟,等到他们将要从他的前方经过,他已经甚至能听到守卫们抱怨这场暴风雪。Snake跨出一步,闪身站在这两个吃了一惊的守卫面前。
圣诞快乐!”Snake一边说一边给了两人各一记重击,直直地命中在他们的脸上,将两个守卫打翻在地:“不好意思我忘记说了——今年的圣诞特别早。”
Snake拽着一个的手臂将他拉到了箱子后面,又在另一个守卫身上重复了一遍。当他把他们都塞到了角落里的时候,一阵警报声开始回荡在空中。
“很好”Snake说,“要不是他们发现我了,就是又出了什么事。上校,我要上电梯了。”
他步入敞开的电梯门,按下了通往地面的按钮。不到十秒以后,他便看到了门外一片开阔的空间,他的视线停留在了一架米-24D雌鹿战斗直升机上。它停在起降坪中央,Snake抬高视线,看到起降坪的顶部加装了可滑动的加强金属板层来保证直升机的起降。几片雪花从上方飘下,Snake注意到外面正下着大雪。
他走出电梯,贴着墙潜入了阴影之中,从而避开两个平台远端守卫的视线。当他蜷身在黑暗中时,一个不熟悉的女声在耳机中响起:“Snake,天气状况很糟糕,一场暴风雪刚刚经过了你的所在。”
“谁在那边?”
“噢,不好意思,我是Mei Ling。除了通讯系统我还负责你的气象监控。”
屋顶完全打开,整个屋子瞬间像时代广场般明亮起来。守卫们纷纷让开,好让螺旋翼开始旋转,几秒钟间便达到的起飞的速度。
“上校,这里有一架俄罗斯的直升机,不知哪个疯子居然想在这种鬼天气起飞。”
一个飞行专家是能够在这种暴风雪天气里飞“雌鹿”的。这架战机正以其迅捷与高速闻名。Snake也听说过这是最难击落的战斗直升机。而它的攻击力也是令人生畏的,因为它携带有“Phalanga-P”反坦克导弹组和航炮。
直升机旋翼周围的灯光照向前方的空中,形成一道光柱指引着驾驶员起飞的方向。虽然它属于突击战机中的大家伙,但是它上升之轻稳好似没有任何重量。它在空中轻轻晃动,与呼啸的狂风抗衡着,似乎那个驾驶着它的家伙很清楚自己正在做着什么。不久,它飞升穿过敞开的屋顶,从视野中消失了。
Snake点起一只烟,正如预料中的,这玩意儿相当糟糕,差点叫他咳嗽起来。不过,有烟抽再怎么也比没有好,那么……
“Snake?”Campbell道。
“怎么了?”
“Liquid自诩是一个飞行专家,应该会坚持自己来飞这一次。我想他已经被我们的战机缠上了,看来我们的诱饵起作用了。”
Mei Ling评论道:“我很惊讶我们居然又能在这样的风暴里执行任务的飞行员。”
“阿拉斯加的空军一只被训练在这种气象条件里飞行,他们可以说是精英中的精英。”
“噢,我并不想打搅你们愉快的争论,但总得有人告诉我接下来我该干什么吧?”
Hunter博士说道:“Snake,DARPA总裁Anderson被注射了和你一样的GPS远程传输纳米计算机,因此你能从CODEC上标记他的位置,我们还没有接收到他的信号,但我想等你进入基地之后就应该没有问题了。”
他检查了一下手腕上的显示屏,注意到了一个微弱的标记。
“他在别的楼层,”Snake说,“不过他在岛内更远的地方,我得进到基地里面去。”
“你得先穿过停机坪,我们注意到有很多基因士兵在这一带巡逻,所以小心你的屁……呃,你的身后。”Mei Ling提醒道。
Snake咧嘴笑了笑。
“你的北面好像有个类似机库的地方,你必须先穿过他才能进入基地主体,那边同样布满了守卫。”
很好。
“小意思”Snake道。
