Surveying the Score - Mission Details:

Michael, Lester and Franklin all meet Trevor at the Vanilla Unicorn to plan the Union Depository heist. Trevor explains he wants to get Merryweather and the FIB off their tails and do one big score. He also wants to bust Brad out of jail.

The group plan how they are going to rob the Union Depository. Michael and Franklin decide to survey the Union Depository building while Franklin and Lester scope out the Securicars routes for a hijack point. Time is tight. The team only have three hours to complete the tasks.

Michael and Trevor drive to the Union Depository and scope out the front entrance and garage access, both lightly guarded. After that's done, play switches to Trevor, who is driving him and Lester to Sandy Shores Airfield. Ont the way there, Trevor talks to Lester about breaking Brad out of jail.

Trevor and Lester get into Trevor's Frogger and fly to Murrieta heights. There, they find the Securicar convoy and tails them, finding a place to ambush them. Trevor suggests various ambush places but Lester keeps rejecting them all until the convoy goes under one of the skyscrapers in Downtown Los Santos, making a perfect spot for a hijack.

Now they've found the hijack spot, Lester wants to investigate an escape route. he remembers a construction site near the building which leads into the Los Santos Transit metro tunnel. They find the site and Lester records some footage of the site.

Once done, the pair head back to the airfield to drop off the Frogger. They discuss how they're going to get the take away from the Union Depository, either by chopper or in the armoured trucks. Once back at the airfield, play switches to Michael, who is dropping Franklin back home.
