Thieves in the Night is a mission conducted by the H.A.W.X. squadron in the near future.
The weapons that were used against the Prince Faisal base are tracked back to a notorious smuggler residing in a lawless, militia controlled city on an African coast. The weapons are of Russian origin and the Russian government sends one of their top field agents to assist the HAWX in dismantling the weapon smuggling chain.
Major Alex Hunter remotely piloted a reconnaissance drone off the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt to mark warehouses, buildings and cargo ships with infrared strobes used by the insurgents to transport and store the newly manufactured Russian weapons with the arms dealer, Ahmed Faridi, as their primary target who had connections with a number of high-ranking insurgent leaders and FSB Agent Stephan Drachev was deployed into the city to work with the HAWX squadron to prepare the destruction of the weapons smuggling network controlled by Faridi himself.
