During Operation Kingfish, Captain Price. Price conducted a joint Task Force 141/Delta Force mission dubbed Operation Kingfish on October 8, 2013, to strike an ultranationalist facility in Ukraine suspected of housing Makarov. This resulted to Price's confinement in the Gulag, where he was known as Prisoner # 627. The operation was intended to lead to the capture or death of Vytas Mazeika, a Lithuanian paramilitary commander believed to be behind several high-profile murders in Lithuania.
Price was captured after he stepped on a landmine while patrolling a forest near Luhansk in eastern Ukraine. He was treated for leg injuries at a hospital before being transferred to prison custody. A senior U.S. official said that Price had not been given medical clearance to travel to Poland for specialized care and that his right foot was amputated after it became infected due to the lack of proper medical treatment in the prison.
In an interview with Newsweek magazine, Price's wife, Jennifer, said that her husband was working with the CIA when he was taken hostage in Ukraine.
"He was doing a job for his country," she said. "And three other people paid the price for his action."
The other men who were executed with Price are: Gary Solton, 47, of West Virginia; Michael Basonka, 42, of Wisconsin; and Charles Johnson, 23, of North Carolina.
6:08 p.m. on October 2, 2005 on July 29, 2016 Due to delays in getting an Environmental Protection Agency permission, the Navy's cost of sinking the former aircraft carrier USS Oriskany as an artificial reef has risen from $2.8 million to $12.73 million. The agency must give its approval before the ship can be destroyed.
The price includes the removal and disposal of the ship's remains at a location to be determined later. If no one objects, the reef site will be selected by the National Marine Fisheries Service, which is responsible for regulating marine protected areas across the country.
The bill also includes research and design costs for a permanent memorial that will mark the site where the ship rests at a depth of about 40 feet. The memorial is expected to be paid for using money raised through private donations.
When the Oriskany was sunk, it was the most expensive naval vessel to date. She had been built as America's flagship for four years ($350 million back then). Then she suffered damage during stormy weather at her home port in Norfolk, Virginia, and had to be towed away for repairs. When she was back in action a few months later, the Navy decided not to repair her but to replace her with a new ship. The Oriskany was sold for scrap metal in 2006.
Now you know how much it cost to sink the Oriskany.
Respawning through Buy Stations If you die in the Gulag, you can still fight again if you have a live teammate. If that buddy gets $4,500 and reaches a purchase station, they can use it to respawn you. If they don't reach a purchase station within 15 minutes, the game will consider you dead and move on to the next survivor.
Gulag missions are available daily at various times throughout the day. They usually offer a choice of two different missions that must be completed within a certain time limit. Some days may only have one mission available while others may have two or three. The type of mission you receive depends on what kind of loot is left in the camp after the previous survivor has been revived.
Each mission gives you a number of credits that can be used at purchase stations to revive other players or yourself. When you first enter the Gulag, you will see a purchase screen where you can choose to buy one of three options: revive, shield or helmet. Reviving another player costs 50 credits, while using a reviver on yourself costs 200 credits. Shields are used to protect you from attack while you're out in the field. They can only be bought at supply stations and cost 100 credits each. Finally, helmets are used to hide your identity when you're with your team. You can only buy them at market stalls and they cost 500 credits each.
