Get El Tigre's medical supplies
You can start this quest after reaching the Patriotas Peak guerrilla hideout for the first time, i.e. after completing the Meet the Legend operation. You must meet El Tigre again at the guerilla camp.
To search for supplies you must go to the location where the helicopter was shot down - namely Sierra Perdida Supply Depot. Once you get there, approach the wreckage of the helicopter to initiate a cut-scene of the first meeting with Jonron and other potential allies.
Secure the crash site
You will be forced to fight enemy soldiers at the crash site. During the gunfight, listen for shouts from your allies about what direction the next group of enemies is coming from. Radar indications are also helpful in tracking newly appearing enemies.
For regular soldiers, you can use any rifle. Just take care not to stay in the open and become an easy target for them.
The enemy machines will be more problematic. Grenades are perfect for quick vehicle destruction, although you can also simply aim to eliminate from behind a good cover of on-board gunners.
There will also unfortunately be at least one enemy helicopter in the area. In this case, we recommend using a rocket launcher, a stationary cannon (e.g. from one of the enemy machines) or using the Volta supremo to send an IEM pulse and "ground" the flying machine.
Bring back a helicopter to airlift the supplies
This mission objective can be quite troublesome, as the helicopter crash site is by default in anti-aircraft gun range. This means that any attempt to reach this location by helicopter will be doomed to failure, as you will be shot down in flight.
The AA cannon is to the west of here and its location is shown in the attached screenshot (Anti-Aircraft Site Zeta) - head out to this location.
Once you reach your destination, it's a good idea to get rid of the surrounding enemies. It is best to do this by sneaking, so that one of the enemies will not want to use the helicopter located in this location.
As for the anti-aircraft gun itself, you can destroy it with grenades, a launcher or suprema Exterminador, for example.
It's a good idea to take the opportunity to steal an enemy helicopter, which should be in the same enemy base. This way, you won't have to visit a helicopter pickup point or look elsewhere in the game world for a "free" flying machine.
With the helicopter acquired, set off towards where Jonron and the other allies are staying. Just fly to the crash site and a mission-ending cut-scene will appear. You don't have to land on your own.
