The mission will be unlocked after ‘Three’s Company’ has been completed, Michael and Franklin will receive an email from Trevor. Depending on which method was chosen in ‘Scouting The Port’ the following set up missions need to be completed:
Freight - Minisub
Offshore - Minisub and Cargobob
The mission will play out in either of the following ways
Trevor drops Franklin off on an overpass. Franklin makes his way over to the vantage point. Meanwhile, Michael, dressed in a scuba gear has made his way to his position by the ship. Franklin using a sniper rifle takes out the Merryweather guards patrolling the deck.
Franklin tells Michael he is clear to board the ship, Michael moves around the deck planting the first three charges; at the bow, the first mast and the second mast. The fourth charge needs to be planted inside the ship, Franklin provides cover over the door as Michael enters. The alarm is then raised, swarms of guards are on the deck and the dock. Franklin takes them out along with a chopper. Franklin tells Michael he is clear and to get out of there. Michael makes a run for the north side of the ship and jumps clear, into the water, then detonates the charges. The cargo falls into the water.
Michael dives to locate the device using the scanner in his dive
Trevor, Michael and Franklin head to Sandy Shores airfield where Trevor has all the equipment they need for the job.
At the airfield, Michael picks up the submersible using the Cargobob before flying to the rest site at Paleto Cove. Once at the site the submersible is released in the test site with Trevor in it. Using a phone app Trevor tracks the device and picks it up before surfacing. Michael hovers above in the chopper and airlifts Trevor and the sub back to Sandy Shores airfield. As they are flying, boats full of Merryweather guards speed along underneath them. Franklin shoots at them, as well as Merryweather helicopters that also appear. Franklin then shoots down more helicopters that appear in pursuit. Michael continues to the airfield. Lester, in this

Lester, at the end of the mission, is at the airfield with the same consequence as the Freight option. Turns out they have stolen a super weapon to sell to the Chinese.
The Freight Approach
Plant the four bombs
You'll now assume control of Michael, but this can be played entirely as Franklin if you so choose, who is providing covering sniper fire from the vantage point. If playing as Michael, make your way around the ship and plant the Sticky Bombs in sequence on the locations marked. Be mindful to avoid detection.
Once the first three bombs are in place, make your way to the ship's stern entrance.
Michaelso he can escape the ship
At this point, you will switch to control Franklin if you weren't already.
Merryweather guards will attack Franklin. Eliminate them. You can switch on the thermal sight of the Sniper Rifle, which will make the task easier by highlighting the Merryweather soldiers. An attack chopper will also appear, shoot the pilot to bring it crashing down. Eliminate the rest of the Merryweather guards to allow Michael to escape the ship.
When the Merryweather guards on the ground have been eliminated, Michael will make his escape. Cover him as he does so.
