The strikeforce missions are a new type of stage in black ops II. The gameplay takes you out of the first person mode and into a tactical RTS kind of game mode.
You are responsible for a whole squad and you can issue commands to every individual member.
You can jump around into first person mode of each character to take care of objectives personally. The outcome of the missions affect the rest of the single player even if you fail the mission.
In this mission, you have to destroy a container ship carrying unauthorized cargo. To do this you will have to capture three control points. Once captured, you do not need to hold the control points so make sure to employ your whole squad to take out the next point. Once you have taken all three points, a guided JDAM will head for the ship, destroying it and completing the objective.
Unlike the previous mission, this one has you defending three communication stations. You might have trouble fending off with a split up squad so concentrate them across two stations instead.
You have to escort a convoy of Humvee as they are targeted by enemy infantry and vehicles. Use your lightly armored drones to take out the infantry while concentrating on the heavier units such as tanks and choppers with the ASDs and the Kinetic Projectile Weapon. Stay with the convoy and try to take out enemies from a distance before they reach their target.
This mission is the outcome of failing to rescue Karma in the normal mission of the same name. This mission is necessary to progress the story before you start the next campaign. Keep your infantry grouped up as you hold off the enemies in each building. Use the VTOL warships to gun down the enemy units while your ground troops stave them off.
This mission should be completed to progress the story before you start the campaign Achilles Veil. You have to eliminate General Zhao Tian in his VTOL ship by cutting through his forces and eventually capturing him.
Keep your squad together for concentrated fire, splitting them up would risk them getting caught out of position and back up. Make sure to have heavy fire to take care of the ASDs.
Use the device to access the ramp that leads to the VTOL. Your men will now capture and kill the general.
