Unknown Island is a location in Mafia III.

History

Background

The Unknown Island is located in the Gulf of Mexico, about 500 miles south of New Bordeaux, just above the Yucatan Peninsula. At one time the island supported a decent fishing industry, but that died out and the residents relocated to the mainland. The island has been abandoned ever since.

Lost Plane

In 1962 a Cuban cargo plane in route to Mexico City experienced difficulties due to a severe storm and crash landed on the island. The plane was carrying a thermonuclear warhead from an R-12 theater ballistic missile belonging to the Soviet Union. The plane and its cargo were considered lost at sea until Connor Aldridge learned of its whereabouts on the island and decided to retrieve the warhead in order to sell it to a contact inside the North Vietnamese Army.

Hermosa Pez

Hermosa Pez is a small abandoned village in the western side of the island. It is currently being used by Aldridge's Mercenaries as a base camp on the island. It consists of several dilapidated houses and an old church. The mercenary commander is found here, along with a handful of men and a mounted Turret. A Griffin Borneo Sport and three Bulworth Mohicans are parked in the village.

Aircraft Crash Site

The site is where Reuben Paez, Horatio Balmana and their crew crash landed their cargo plane as they were flying the warhead to Mexico City to meet with their Russian allies. The site is guarded by several mercenaries and has a turret placed on the hill to the south.

Siniy-2 entrance

Siniy-2 is a small Cuban military installation containing an unfinished missile silo and submarine bay. Construction on the facility halted in October of 1962 as a result of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when United States President John F. Kennedy pressured Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev into dismantling their offensive weapons buildup in Cuba and return all nuclear warheads to the Soviet Union. [1]

Trivia

  • The location given by Reuben Paez is 22.5 latitude, -87.9 longitude. This places the island in the Gulf of Mexico, just north of the Yucatan Peninsula.
  • A Note found at Siniy-2 mentions Nikita Khrushchev sending one of Strelka's puppies, named Pushinka, to President John F. Kennedy. Strelka was one of two dogs aboard Sputnik 2, which carried the first living creatures to be sent into space and return alive.
