"Stop the ICBM test launch."
— In-game description

Rocket's Red Glare is the sixth Operation in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified. It involves Frank Woods to destroy multiple ICBM's located near a snowy Russian mountain.



"Great. Place those charges."
— Woods upon encountering the first ICBM.

The mission begins with Frank Woods climbing over a fence behind three unsuspecting soldiers. Use the knife to silently eliminate them. Clear the next building, and then approach the ICBM. Kill any enemies guarding it, then proceed to place explosives on it. Around the next corner is another ICBM, which contains resistance. Defeat them and place the charges. When moving outside, heavy resistance is set up. Make sure to kill every enemy here, as they are scattered throughout the structure. After moving through a door in the bottom of this building, the final ICBM is spotted- being prepared to fire. Clear all enemies guarding it, then approach the final ICBM. Woods will climb onto it and place an explosive charge, then roll off directly before it fires. The ICBM can be seen flying into the air, but Woods pulls the detonator, blowing it and the other ICBM's up.
