Synopsis/Details: 

Sirius Mudd hasn’t had much luck. The last mission of Delta Force Bravo Bravo Alpha resulted in the death of beloved comrade Gunner Hummel, and betrayal by commanding CIA operative B.G. De Foe.

Years after their dishonorable discharge, Mudd latches upon a scheme to make everything right…or at least earn enough money to make up for past failures. Gathering his reluctant team, Mudd heads for Nigeria – to help a prince reclaim his lost wealth.

Upon arrival, Mudd and the team find they’ve been deceived…and stumble onto an even greater conspiracy. De Foe is there, scheming to bring the oil and gas resources of Nigeria under his complete control. Will Mudd and the team defeat their old nemesis? Or will their final mission become the last mistake in a lost list of failures?
