Ricardo Diaz

He agrees to be a decoy to allow Victor to sneak onto the base, as a step towards avenging her. Victor drives to Fort Baxter Air Base, where he exits the truck and Phil drives the truck, full of boomshine, into the fort's main gates, causing an explosion.

Victor then sneaks into Fort Baxter Air Base and makes his way to the main building, killing any soldiers he spots. After entering the control room, Victor unlocks the gates to the Hunter.
