The Mbele Squad platoon leader was one of targets the Mbele general wanted Venom Snake to assassinate in 1984. According to the general, the platoon leader betrayed his men and joined a local PF after he and his child soldiers were captured by Buta enemies and brought to Kungenga Mine.[1][2] However, if Venom Snake interrogates the platoon leader, he will claim that it was the other way around; he sold himself to the PF to save children's lives.[3]

Behind the scenes

The Mbele Squad platoon leader is one of the targets in the mission "Blood Runs Deep", as well as the only target allowed to be killed (as the other five targets, the remaining members of the Mbele Squad, will automatically be spared by Snake in a pivotal cutscene after he faked their deaths). If the player decides to extract him, Miller will state to Snake with implied disappointment that they were supposed to kill him before nonetheless acknowledging that it was ultimately Snake's decision.

The PF he joined was not explicitly stated by Miller, although his profile image revealed that it was Rogue Coyote. In addition, Rogue Coyote soldiers are present in the area that the platoon leader patrols.

    Kazuhira Miller (briefing tape): The targets are six former members of an Mbele rebel platoon. That's one of them. He was the platoon leader. Then he turned his back on the others and joined up with the local PF. Now he's part of the security detail at the Bampeve Plantation. He's not so different from the general. They get plenty worked up for rebellion and revenge, but don't give a damn about their own men.

    Platoon leader: I didn't betray them... I sold myself... to protect them...
