Introduction
Are you tired of having a completely staffed out Combat Platform with every manly face possible but still lack that certain fairer sex with something else than Gunslinger and asthma syndromes?
Then welcome to my Guide where I'll introduce you to the best Prisoner Extraction Side Op, how to get there and how to utilize it.
Unlocking and repeating Prisoner Extraction 09
This Side Op takes place in the Aabe Shifap Ruins (it's where you got ambushed by Quiet) and to replay a Side Op in that area you will have to complete every one that takes place in the Ruins or the adjacent East Guard Post 04.
This is the list of Side Ops you need to complete:
  • Eliminate the Armored Vehicle Unit 11
  • Eliminate the Wandering Puppets 10
  • Extract the Highly-Skilled Soldier 05
  • Eliminate the Heavy Infantry 03
  • Eliminate the Tank Unit 03
Once you complete an Operation, you can immediately head back to your ACC to unlock the next one until you reach Prisoner Extraction 09 and we move over to the next part.
Re-rolling Appearance and Skills
For the following, you'll need a fully upgraded Int-Scope and Stealth Camo. Having some upgraded Armor on Pequod is also recommended.
You really won't need anything else, so conserve your resources.

Select Prisoner Extraction 09 and choose the Landing Zone right in the middle of the Ruins.

Before you leave the Helicopter, activate your Stealth Camo and drop in undetected so the game saves a checkpoint. Pequod will take some fire from snipers but he should make it out safely so don't worry about him.

From your Landing Zone you can already spot the prisoner. Stay cloaked and run up to her to take a look. If you don't like her appearance, return to ACC and restart the whole Operation until you get your preferred face/hair combination so we can move over to the next part.


Now we can focus on getting the exact Skill you want. From the pause menu, select to reload your checkpoint. This won't change her appearance but instead re-roll the stats and special ability. Simply move a few steps from your Landing Zone, scan her and reload the checkpoint until you get lucky.
This prisoner can draw every combat Skill possible and get an S-Rank, but this part is entirely RNG reliant and may take quite a while.

Once you got your dream combination, simply fulton extract the prisoner and return to ACC.

For those having trouble with getting this to reappear if they've already unlocked it:

Just keep doing the Side Ops at Abe Shifap and the guard post just east of it until Prisoner Extraction 09 reappears. Sometimes you'll have to repeat the same one; they don't reappear in any exact order.

Forget the Side Ops menu. Go to Missions > Mission List > Free Roam tab > Afghanistan, and check Abe Shifap on the map. Check the Side Op, and deploy where desired.

And remember, if you badmouth my wafiu, I'll end your lifeu with Nihongo tamahagane folded over 1,000 times.

What if all of these missions are unavailible?

Can confirm @DudeDesigns method works very well, and one thing I'll add - after aborting mission 11 you can use the binoculars to check the prisoner's stats from right where you spawn in and if they are no good just use the checkpoint from the menu to re-roll, saving even more time :)

There is an easier way to grind this side op. Instead of just simply fultoning the prisoner, if you open up the Mission List and select Mission 11 while you're right next to her, you will start Cloaked in Silence while at the same time auto fultoning this prisoner. Best part? You don't have to re-do all the other side ops to re open this one using this method. You can quiet literally open and re open mission 11 to farm this side op endlessly. every time you go into Mission 11, simply select abort mission from the menu and it'll put you back at the start of the ruins where you can keep the process going.

Whoa, that's a little edgy Landeyx. The politcaly correct term is "Chocolate".

No? Brown people!

Like come on, Afghanistan has some black people in it.

Not true I was just seeing a crap ton of white chicks and was gonna call out racism.

Sorb is into black girls...

Can you get a black girl from this mission or just from White Mamba?
