This study covers an URBAN escape. The SEAL has contend with South Korea’s extensive CCTV network. Much like the urban area of NYC or DC today. The cost is 35 minutes. The KNP is the Korean national police.
Don’t think of this as a SEAL vs the KNP. See this as a shooter trying to make an escape from the city or trying to get to a safehouse. Just look at the troubles all those CCTVs cause.
There are 5K cameras in the target city. See you in the shadows.
Keep moving, seemingly at random. Stay ahead. In an urban area, the trail is CC tranactions, cameras and witnesses.
Lay a deception trail. Draw all assets to one area and…..…… slip out. Use their tech against them.
The KNP cordons off a 4 block area. Let himself be seen and then tipped off on. Buy a room at a hotel. Change clothes. He slips out a window.
Timing is everything. They canvass the surrounding blocks. Get into the back alleys.
*****They get the LP of his cab. Their technology allows them to track that car any time it passes a cameras.*****
The police set up roadblocks. He forgot his backpack. He goes into the woods. No cameras there. Skirt the treeline to reenter the city.
LKL: Last Known Location
He crawls across an open field. It takes time and leaves a clear trail. They catch his spore. Interestingly, they don’t use dogs to track the SEAL.
Again, point of entry is important. Best camo is natural soil and vegetation. A helicopter comes and runs search patterns.
He has a choice: either stay put or a risky move across an open field.
He stays in a cave overnight. There’s wind in it, so it has 2 openings, leaving an escape route. He makes a can string detection system.
Even thermal imaging doesn’t have the detail needed. The KNP waits until first light.
He jumps into the back of a truck into the city. Then the cameras start again.
***Ah, finally! He enters the sewers. All rivers flow to the sea. He watches the flow of water.
The harbor is shut down. The KNP lock it up. But that’s where his extract point is. He runs and jumps into the water.
He’s boxed in and caught. He says technology beat him. Stay out of the big cities!
