       :[ T H E   S P Y / I N T E L L I G E N C E   U N I T ]:
    
       The Spy/Intelligence unit is responsible for collecting various pieces of
       information.  Up to four soldiers can be deployed in one area.  The info-
       mation gathered varies  depending on the abilities and number of soldiers
       stationed in the given area.
    
    
       :[ S N S / ( S E N S E ) ]:
    
       SNS (or Sence) affects the reconnaissance area displayed in the START menu,
       (the Blue Circle surrounding your soldiers). However, it also affects your
       intelligence  activities.  The  higher the SNS rating/value of a soldier -
       the quicker reports come in.
    
    
       :[ R E P O R T S ]:
    
       Once intelligence units have been formed in areas, you will recieve reports
       from them.  The information  contained in the reports may be helpful during
       the course of the game. Information regarding things from weapon locations,
       sabotage  targets, prospective  recruits to peices of information essential
       to your continued progression through the game.
    
    
       :[ S U R V E Y O R S ]:
    
       Surveyors  increase the amount of information  displayed in your area maps,
       (acessable  through the START menu).  Things like a detailed  map, and item
       box locations can make your progress through Portable Ops alot more stream-
       lined, and is almost  essential  when you are looking  for specific weapons
       and items you have to find from a Report.
    
    
       :[ A R M S   D E A L E R S ]:
    
       Arms dealers increase the chance of your  Spy/Intelligence  Unit procuring
       ammunition  from an area (You will be informed  after you complete/abort a
       mission if this has happened).  This can take  alot of the leg-work out of
       keeping your weapons/ammunition caches nice and full.
    
    
       :[ S P Y S / A G E N T S ]:
    
       Spys or Agents  (depending on version) have the effect of lowering enemies
       life in the area they are deployed.  This can be a "double edged sword" in
       some senses.  In one sense; they make prospective  enemies easier to kill, 
       on the other hand; they make possible new-recruits weaker.  It is really a
       matter of  deciding what effect works best for your style of play and what
       situation you are presently facing.
    
    
       :[ S U R R O U N D   I N D I C A T O R]:
       A radar that displays  sounds from  a soldiers  surroundings in visual and 
       wave form.  Useful when trying to find or stay hidden from enemies.
    
    
       :[ S C O P E / B I N O C U L A R S ]:
       Great for viewing distant objects and people from a safe distance.
    
    
       :[ I N F R A R E D   G O G G L E S ]:
       Battery powered goggles that detect heat signatures. They are useful when
       conducting CTR's  (Close  Target  Reconnaissance) of areas beleived to be 
       protected by a laser security grid.
    
    
       :[ N I G H T   V I S I O N   G O G G L E S ]:
       Battery  powered  goggles that enhance  light, allowing you to see in the
       dark more effectively.  Handy  during night  missions when  visibility is
       poor.
    
    
       :[ M K 2 2 ]:
       A 9mm handgun modified to fire tranquiliser rounds (Surpressor  Equipped).
       Handy for putting  enemies to sleep,  dragging  them to a safer area, and
       interorgating them in comfort.
    
    
       :[ S T E A L T H   C A M O U F L A G E]:
       Battery powered optic - camouflage that renders users virtually invisible.

       O -  Try to have atleast one Surveyor in each area.
    
       O -  Try to have alteast one Arms Dealer in each area.
    
       O -  Be cautious as to when, where and why you are using a Spy/Agent.
    
       O -  Try to fill up the remaining (OPEN) slots in your Spy Unit.
    
       O -  Pay close attention to the SNS rating of your soldiers.
    
       O -  Deploy your soldiers with the highest SNS rating, to the areas
            you deem to be most important.  For example; a newly discovered
            area or an area you are missing a Report(s) from.
    
       O -  Complete Reports as the come in.
    
       O -  Use the right tools for the job (night vision, MK 22 etc).
    
       O -  Interogating enemies can surface valuable information.
    
    
       These are just strategies designed to give you a grounding in Spying,
       as you progress through the game, these concepts will evolve and
       become second nature to you.

       The higher the SNS skill of your spies the more detailed the map will
       be when you deploy your Sneaking Unit to that area.  Spy/Detail level
       are  indicated at the top of the START  menu, as well as your MISSION
       screen by a symbol somewhat like this:
    
                  Level 1            Level 2            Level 3
                  _______            _______            _______
                 |       |          |       |          |       |
                 | ))) 1 |          | ))) 2 |          | ))) 3 |
                 |_______|          |_______|          |_______|
    
       Level 0: No MAP detail is displayed
       Level 1: Shows the outside of the area in detail
       Level 2: Shows the inside and outside of the area in detail
       Level 3: Shows inside, outside and item/weapon box locations in detail
                (item/weapon boxes indicated by a small green square)
    
       
       Achieving those levels can be quite easy if you have the right units:
    
       Level 0:  No units deployed to an area from your Spy Unit.
    
       Level 1:  Depoying a soldier with (approx.) 40 SNS will usually give
                 you a Level 1 Spy Detail.
    
       Level 2:  Deploying soldiers with a combined SNS of (approx.) 80 SNS
                 will usually give a Level 2 Spy Detail.
    
       Level 3:  Deploying soldiers with a combined SNS of (approx.) 160 SNS
                 will usually give you a Level 3 Spy Detail.
    
                 Or alternatively - deploying a single Surveyor will do the
                 same job.

       Active Reconnaissance refers to intelligence gathering conducted by
       soldiers [OUTSIDE] your Spy Unit - more  specifically, they are the
       intelligence  gathering  activities  that are  conducted by you and
       your Sneaking Unit.
    
       These activities refer to paying attention to things like:
    
       O-  What enemies are actually stationed in the area you want
           to infiltrate (Officers, FOX Soldiers, etc)*  This will make
           infiltrating alot easier.  (When is Rome...)
    
           *   This changes throughout the game, so I will not provide
               specific details, (consult a walkthrough if you are in
               desperate need).
    
       O-  What weapons your enemy is carrying, this is useful for a number
           of reasons:
    
           o-  It shows you, what you are potentionally up against
           o-  The weapon an enemy carries usually means they have either
               an [A] or [S] ranking in that trait (Handgun, SMG, etc)
    
       O-  What patrol routes your enemies are moving along.  So you can
           avoid them etc.
    
       O-  Remembering where you saw a specific item/weapon box may
           save you some time when you are looking looking to
           replenish supplies.
    
       O-  Familiarising your self with the area will save you time
           and make you a much more potent foe. (in MPO: Online aswell).
    
       O-  Interorgating enemies will often yeild valuable information.
    
    
       These are just some of the "Active Reconnaissance" activities
       you can conduct in MPO.  These were just a guide, to bring to
       attention  the  fact that  it is not only your Spy  Unit that 
       conducts espionage.

       It is always best to clear all your reports, (unless you are SpeedRunning
       or attempting to recruit Cunningham)  because it is my understanding that
       if certain reports are not completed you may not recieve certain reports.
       The higher the total SNS rating of all the soldiers  deployed in an area,
       usually allows for a quicker  income of  Reports, and you are less likely
       to miss reports.
    
       Its also noteworthy to mention that Reports give MPO alot of replay value
       and  also  provide  background  information  on  characters and about the
       Metal Gear story in general.

       The following is a list of all the reports in MPO.  It has been broken down
       areas,  below is a "sub"-table of contents  to help you find the report you
       are after.  Note: that some of the reports may be out of order, or some may
       be missing - if you notice something like this, please  contact me so I may
       make the the corrections or additions as needed.

          Progress continues on arming Metal Gear with nuclear warheads.
          The work is being carried out in the south part of the plant.      
    
          -------------------------
          U-SMG LOCATED
          -------------------------
          Sources indicate that there is an U-SMG stored indide the Plant.
          We assess that it is available for procurement at any time.

          MK22
          -------------------------
          Sources indicate that an MK22 has been transported to the
          Eastern Ravine.
    
          -------------------------
          POWER SUBSTATION LOCATED
          -------------------------
          We have reports of a substation near the ravine. The exact
          location is unclear, but it appears to be to the south of
          the Ravine.
    
          -------------------------
          ADDITIONAL SOLDIERS
          -------------------------
          An elite officer has been deployed to the Eastern Ravine. We
          assess that recruiting this officer would augment our
          combat capabilities.
          Be advised that visual range is limited due to thick fog.

          PERFECT SOLDIER LOCATED
          -------------------------
          A cargo truck has been sighted delivering a large piece of
          equipment. Judging by the packaging of the equipment, we
          believe it may be the culture tank. The perfect soldier may
          also be housed inside the tank. Exercise extreme caution.
    
          -------------------------
          HIGH-RANKING OFFICER SIGHTED
          -------------------------
          We believe that a high-ranking officer commands the security
          units at the entrance to the nuclear launch silo. This person
          appears to be responsible for any incidents occurring in the
          vicinity.
    
          -------------------------
          TECHNICAL DOCUMENT OBTAINED
          -------------------------
          We have obtained a technical document believed to be structural
          diagram of the gate leading from the entrance of the nuclear
          launch silo to the underground silo complex.
    
          -------------------------
          DETAILS ON SILO
          -------------------------
          We have obtained information regarding the basic structure of
          the nuclear launch silo.  The silo complex is roughly devided
          into three sections:
          1. Exterior (Entrance)
          2. Interior (Freight Elevator)
          3. The Silo Itself

          M10 FOUND
          -------------------------
          Sources indicate that there is an M10 submachine gun stored
          in the substation. We assess that it is available for
          procurement at any time.
    
          -------------------------
          ALIEN INVASION?
          -------------------------
          A female dressed as what can only be described as a Venusian
          has been sighted at the substation.  The subject appears
          to be armed.
