John Devereaux and his MANTRA-6 team are now fully operational.

On the frozen landscape of Northern Russia, four figures dressed in arctic camouflage uniforms, break into the Polyarny Naval Base near Murmansk – Home of Russia’s Northern Fleet. Their mission, to steal 60kg of highly enriched Uranium-235 (U-235) and hand it over to the Russian Mafia.


Rogue nations & despots – North Korea, Libya, Iran, Al-Qa’Ida, Hamas & Hezbollah, all want their hands on this murderous cargo… Let the bidding begin!


MANTRA-6 is on the hunt.

God help anyone who gets in their way!
