Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Takedown – Missions in Korea is a South Korean PC game released in July, 2001. The game is not based on the Rainbow Six game timeline since the game was not released outside of South Korea and was only made by Kama Digital Entertainment for the South Korean gaming market. It has major content differences to the existing series, and the game's events take place in South Korean.

It had been announced on a press conference on February 5, 2001 that the game would be released inn June 2001. Despite promises from Red Storm Entertainment that the game will meet an international release, it has not been released in any other countries aside from South Korea as of 2019.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The gameplay is similar to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear.

Major differences in the game include 15 South Korean RAINBOW operatives, 26 game maps, 4 RAINBOW uniforms and 15 firearms, some of which showcase South Korean-made weapons like the Daewoo K2 assault rifle and the Daewoo K3 light machine gun.

Only 5 non-South Korean operatives remained in the game, including Ding Chavez and Eddie Price.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

The game has its events placed between Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Rogue Spear Mission Pack: Urban Operations and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Covert Ops Essentials. As such, its considered to be set in an alternate timeline where the events of Covert Ops Essentials and other subsequent titles after Urban Operations never took place.

RAINBOW is summoned by South Korean officials to be deployed in South Korea in the year 2003 after a rash of criminal and terrorist activities takes place in South Korea, starting with a terrorist group named ATX taking several civilians hostage. As more and more missions continue to be placed under RAINBOW's watch, RAINBOW intelligence gets wind of a criminal plot by a Japanese Yakuza gang to expand their activities in South Korea. To do this, ATX and other criminal and terrorist groups are used in order to distract South Korean security forces from finding out their true motives.
