The mission begins with [[Michael De Santa]], [[Trevor Phillips|Trevor Philips]] and [[Franklin Clinton]] being summoned by the corrupt FIB agent, [[Steve Haines]].

Michael does the "heavy lifting," and will grab Mr. K. Trevor is tasked with flying a [[Frogger]] helicopter because of his past experience as a pilot. Franklin acts a sniper, who will provide support for Michael.
   
[[Trevor Philips]] is tasked with flying the [[Frogger]] helicopter, considering his Flying experience.

When the 3 protagonists arrive at the IAA HQ, Franklin is already perched with a [[Heavy Sniper]] on top of a building across the street to cover Michael. As Trevor hovers overhead, Michael rappels down the building to the Agency office window to extract the target. The target, Mr. K's being tortured by IAA agents. Michael identifies the target, and rappels in, putting a [[AP Pistol|gun]] to his head and the agents aim their guns at Michael, prompting Franklin to kill some of the IAA agents guarding the target. With the first wave of agents clear, Trevor pulls them out of the building and Michael and Franklin kill remaining agents. Michael rappels him and Mr. K back up to the helicopter, as many IAA helicopters show up. Franklin kills one pilot, while Michael kills the others. After getting rid of the air unit, Michaels tells Franklin to take off, while Trevor, Michael, and Mr. K head to an empty lot to give him to the FIB, where the mission concludes.
   
[[Franklin Clinton]] is the designated sniper, who will provide to be sniper support for Michael when he is inside the IAA Headquarters.

When the 3 protagonists arrive at the [[IAA]] HQ (in-game rendition of the [[wp:CIA|CIA]]), [[Franklin]] is already perched with a [[Sniper Rifle]] on top of a nearby building, in case things get violent. As [[Trevor]] hovers overhead, [[Michael (GTA V)|Michael]] rappels down the building to the 36th floor to extract the target. On his way the player can observe offices full of people, giving a real-life feeling. Michael identifies the target, breaks the glass and catches the man, while the bodyguards are pointing guns at him. The player then switches to Franklin, who covers Michael from across the street by sniping some of the bodyguards, and then has the choice to switch back to play as Michael as he shoots the remaining guards. Trevor then brings Michael and the captured man back up to the helicopter, as many more helicopters show up. Franklin kills the pilot in the chopper going after him while Michael shoots down the other helicopters with an assault rifle, as Trevor flies around them. They all arrive at the [[FIB]] helipad and the mission concludes.

Three's Company[1] is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given by FIB agent Steve Haines to protagonists Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton.

DescriptionEdit

The mission begins with Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton being summoned by the corrupt FIB agent, Steve Haines. Haines forces Michael and his crew to perform an abduction against the IAA, another government force, in order to boost the funding for the FIB. Michael refuses, until Haines uses Dave's leverage into forcing him to do the job.

Michael does the "heavy lifting," and will grab Mr. K. Trevor is tasked with flying a Frogger helicopter because of his past experience as a pilot. Franklin acts a sniper, who will provide support for Michael.

When the 3 protagonists arrive at the IAA HQ, Franklin is already perched with a Heavy Sniper on top of a building across the street to cover Michael. As Trevor hovers overhead, Michael rappels down the building to the Agency office window to extract the target. The target, Mr. K's being tortured by IAA agents. Michael identifies the target, and rappels in, putting a gun to his head and the agents aim their guns at Michael, prompting Franklin to kill some of the IAA agents guarding the target. With the first wave of agents clear, Trevor pulls them out of the building and Michael and Franklin kill remaining agents. Michael rappels him and Mr. K back up to the helicopter, as many IAA helicopters show up. Franklin kills one pilot, while Michael kills the others. After getting rid of the air unit, Michaels tells Franklin to take off, while Trevor, Michael, and Mr. K head to an empty lot to give him to the FIB, where the mission concludes.

Not so, according to the IAA. Agency spokeswoman Lucinda Jacob told reporters the incident was merely a training exercise, and nothing to be concerned by.
