THE HERO: JOHN GLAMES
John Glames has been a member of the CIA, the American secret service,
for the last 7 years. His pedigree is outstanding, which is why he
has been chosen for numerous dangerous and delicate international
missions. The mission he is being entrusted with today is of capital
importance, for the diplomatic stability of the world hangs in the
SUBJECT: AGENT DSC 3 - JOHN GLAMES CHOSEN FOR THE MISSION
BRIEFED: MARCH 1990
Height: 1.85 m
Weight: 75 kgs.
Born in 1957 to an upper middle class family in Vermont, from his
earliest childhood his acute intelligence was remarkable. He went to
school in his home town where he became a member of the local skiing
and swimming teams.
After having studied at the famous university in Boston, where, as a
member of the swimming team, he established university records for the
1.500 m freestyle and the 200 m butterfly, he was admitted to Westpoint
military academy at the age of 22.
In 1981 DSC 3 spent a year at an American base in Asia. He put his time
to good use, learning all the techniques of the martial arts, and is
currently a Master of Ninjitsu. In 1983 he was recruited by our agency
while he was finishing a brilliant Masters degree in chemistry at MIT
(Massachussets Institute of Technology.
He is, therefore, an excellent skier and a very good swimmer (he is
particularly fond of skin diving, which he learned during his stay
in Asia). His mastery of the techniques of the martial arts makes him
very strong in hand-to-hand combat and very resistant both to effort
and to injury. His brilliant studies, (he was among the top students
both at MIT and at Westpoint) have made him an expert on armaments,
shooting and chemistry. He is also infatuated with electronics and is
passionately interested in anything touching upon that area. DSC 3 is
also a great enthusiast for racing cars and car chases, an area in
which he excels.
His weakness? Women.....
REPORTS ON HIS PREVIOUS MISSIONS
Restricted access - Top secret documents.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF THE STEALTH FIGHTER
o Selected targets are located by Laser technology, which guides the
bombs onto the chosen one.
o Target error factor : 0.001%.

o Each bomb can destroy a town the size of New York in 10 seconds.
o A mixture of refined aviation fuel, CAT 08 and 34% liquid hydrogen.
o Quantity of fuel : minimum of 300 litres.
o STEALTH Model A is not refuellable in flight. This option will

o from 2,500 to 3,000 km/h in 3 seconds : option "HYPER BOOST".
DANGER! Only use HYPER BOOST option in cases of last resort because
the fuel consumption is enormous. There is a risk of fuel shortage.
1) THE FALSE ATTACHE CASE
The false attache case has a double bottom.
CALCULATOR : DANGER!!!
Never take the calculator far away from the attache case. The
calculator is linked with the attache case by an infra-red beam.
If you separate the calculator from the attache case, the infra-red
beam is broken, setting off an explosion equivalent to 10 kg of
plastic explosive. (Serious damage to everything within a radius of
This ultra modern machine is designed to forge passports. The forger
is in the secret compartment of the attache case and has three programs:
o false French passport.
o false British passport.
o false German passport.
Type in the required code on the calculator to get the NTY FORGER.
a) Use the nationality best suited for the current political situation.
b) Use the arrows on the NTY FORGER to select the nationality you have
c) Press the button to confirm your choice.
NOTE! This attache case is a new invention of our weapons service.
The director of the service, Professor CARLING is very attached to it.
2) THE WATCH CABLE
This can be an invaluable aid under any circumstances. An object like
a watch is so ordinary that it would never raise the suspicions of your
enemies, for example: the Watch Cable was very useful to agent DSC 2
during a chase over the roofs in HONG-KONG in the course of his last
THE CHASE IN HONG KONG
After stealing documents from the Chinese secret services building in
HONG-KONG, agent DSC 2 was spotted by the security services of the
building. After a wild chase, DSC 2 found himself on the roof of the
building. The enemy was at his heels. There was another building
facing DSC 2. He used the cable option on his watch and was thus able
to escape from his pursuers.
o Maximum length of cable : 30 m.
o Maximum weight the cable will support : 100 kgs.
o The cable plays out in 10 seconds.
3) THE CUTTING PEN
Just like the watch, an ordinary pen will never awaken the suspicions
of your enemies. The cutting pen looks like an ordinary fountain pen.
It is special because it contains a pressurized capsule of benzoic
acid. When the swivel ring on the pen body is turned through 180
degrees, the benzoic acid capsule depressurizes and lets drops of benzoic
acid fall from the nib of the pen.
PROPERTIES OF BENZOIC ACID:
DISSOLVES ALL AMOUNT OF ACID
STEEL 3 drops
IRON 2 drops
GOLD 10 drops
MANGANESE 5 drops
TUNGSTEN 1 drop
PLATINUM 8 drops
LEAD 12 drops
COPPER 2 drops
Use the prescribed number of drops. If you exceed the dose the vapours
given off by the chemical reaction could suffocate you.
NOTE: The cutting pen was used successfully by agent DSC 1 to escape
from the ALMADENA prison.
4) THE RECORDING RAZOR
a) Make sure the razor contains a blank micro cassette. To do this,
first press the Eject button. You will find the micro cassette
located towards the upper rear portion of the razor. Make sure the
cassette has been rewound.
b) Replace the cassette.
c) To record a conversation : switch the On/Off switch to the On position.
d) The shaving heads will now function as very powerful microphones,
capable of recording any conversation within a radius of 20 meters
of the razor.
e) When the razor is recording : the indicator light is green. When
the razor is not recording : the indicator light is red.
f) When the cassette is full, the razor rewinds it automatically. When
the cassette has been rewound, the indicator light changes to red.
o Recording time of the micro cassette : 30 minutes.
5) THE SAFE - CRACKING BOX
Allows you to find the combination of any safe. This box was dreamed
up by world famous burglar known as "The Cracker". When he was caught
by agent DSC 3, this mastermind of burglary told us all of his secrets.
With his help, Professor CARLING perfected the Code-Breaking Box. Let it
be said that Professor CARLING added his own personal touches so as to
improve on the ideas of "The Cracker".
HOW TO USE THE CODE - BREAKING BOX
a) Place the box on the safe.
b) Press the On/Off button.
c) Slowly turn the tumbler of the safe.
d) The numbers in the code will be shown on the number display in the
same order as they occur in the combination lock.
e) Recompose the code in the same order as that shown on the number
display of the box and the safe will open.
The Code-Breaking Box is powered by two batteries containing enriched
mercury. This substance allows it to sense all of the infinitesmal
variations in sound. That is why it is used in the box. The
disadvantage of enriched mercury is that it does not last very long when
in use. You must act quickly.
6) THE CIGARETTE CASE
This cigarette case contains two types of cigarettes.
A) Rocket launching cigarettes.
B) Finger print revealing cigarettes.
A) ROCKET LAUNCHING CIGARETTES
This cigarette contains a rocket near the filter. The rocket is linked
to a heat sensor at the end of the cigarette by a minute thread. When
the cigarette is lit, the thread burns and launches the rocket.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ROCKET:
o Length : 3 cm.
o Range : 25 m.
o Hit Rate : at 5 m - 100%.
at 10 m - 95%.
at 15 m - 92.5%.
at 20 m - 90%.
at 25 m - 87.5%.
o It can destroy an object the size of a car.
B) FINGER PRINT REVEALING CIGARETTES
The cigarette contains an ultra-sensitive micro-film made of CrO2.
With this micro-film, you can photograph any finger print. All you
have to do is to place the micro-film on the spot where you have
found the finger print. The computerized database research unit can
then identify the owner of the finger print you have photographed.
SUSPECT No. 1 - GENERAL MANIGUA
He was democratically elected by the Paraguayan people three years ago.
At that time, he was adored by his fellow countrymen. He had thwarted
a military junta that threatened to sieze power. General MANIGUA was
not known then as General but as President MANIGUA.
He had never been a military man, but had studied sociology at Harvard.
Unfortunately, he has changed a lot since he came to power, but we do
not know the reasons why.
A year ago he assumed the title of General and dissolved the People's
Assembly, making himself dictator.
The country is now in a state of siege. Even his own family no longer
recognize the good President MANIGUA. Freedom of speech has disappeared
in SANTA PARAGUA. No one dare voice any opposition. General MANIGUA
has surrounded himself with a terrifying secret police force which is
ruthlessly efficient in its repression of political opponents.
It is under these circumstances that a resistance group called LIBERTAD
has been formed.
This group struggles in secret against the dictatorship. According to
them, MANIGUA is only the puppet of an international crime syndicate.
However, opinions are divided in the group. Other members believe
that MANIGUA rules the country with a rod of iron by himself.
Since General MANIGUA plunged the country into a dictatorship, we have
ceased to support him.
We are now supplying LIBERTAD with arms to fight MANIGUA's secret police,
making us MANIGUA's enemy No. 1, for without our arms supplies, the
local resistance would be incapable of fighting.
We are sending you to SANTA PARAGUA immediately because agent DSC 2,
who has been on a mission there for the last six months, has sent this
"IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE STEALTH AFFAIR. STOP. I NEED URGENT
It is therefore probable that MANIGUA is implicated, either directly
or indirectly, in the theft of our STEALTH. We do not know, however,
if he planned the whole affair, or whether he was callaborating with
a foreign power.
SUSPECT No. 2 THE U.S.S.R. (The KGB)
Over the last few years our relations with the Soviet Union have
We have jointly signed several treaties in such areas as disarmament
and trade. The present leaders of the Soviet Union seem to be looking
However, in the heart of the Supreme Soviet there are extremist
elements who advocate the destruction of capitalism and war with the
United States. We also know that Soviet scientists have been working
for the last two years on an aviation project similar to STEALTH. The
man in charge of the project, Professor LUKASIEWICZ, fled the U.S.S.R.
and sought asylum in West Germany. Since he left, the project has
been frozen. It could be that the Soviets, unsettled by our progress
on the Stealth project, have stolen our technological jewel to copy it.
Did they act in collaboration with General MANIGUA?
We have no clues.
