Find the Gift Package
15 June 1944
Now that you've survived the initial field test of your basic conversational German, it's time to get down to business.
First, you'll find-- stuck to the wall-- a clipboard holding a freight manifest. Steal it. It contains a roster of all the German metalwerks that manufactured parts for Greta. The eight air force is very interested in drawing a new target list based on its contents.
Second, you'll need to locate a special "Gift Package" that's been left for you by an undercover Maquis agent. It contains a sniper rifle, some ammunition, and-- most importantly-- the custom demolition charges that you need to destroy Greta.
Finally, we want you to blow up Greta's reserve engine. She's a specially armored beast that's escaped several strafing runs relatively unscathed. It's a good target of opportunity for you.
To place a demolition charge, look for a throbbing red box-- this indicates that a location is suitable for explosives. Press the "Action" button to set the charge.
As for the Gift Package, I'm not sure where it is or what it looks like. All I know is that the Maquis agent who left it for you travels undercover as a member of Reichsmarschall Goering's official orchestra.

- Much of the level stars in a multiplayer map.
- Be careful around the Gestapo Officers. They will blow your cover and are usually near alarms.
- In wireframe mode, the front of the reserve engine is still normally textured. The reason is that it turns into a "destroyed" state (once you blow it up) and the same goes for alarms, crates, barrels, and objective items.
- Despite Patterson collecting an Ausweis Rot "ID Red" in the previous level, for some reason he has collect another in this one. Either he lost the one he had or the one in this level is a different type with higher clearance.
- The act of concealing the firearms into a instrument case was actually used by gangster during prohibition era, where Thompson 1928 was prominent for their main firearms beside the shotguns. During the WWII, especially in D-Day, Griswold Weapon Bag was designed for paratroopers to store their disassembled M1 Garand and reassembling it after landing.
