The Checkpoint

As the lead element of Team Two are making their way back to base, Yuri Orlov and his bodyguard are stuck in a traffic jam right ahead of them crossing a bridge at a roadblock.

The mercenaries must get through the crowds away from the chasing Rainbow team and through the checkpoint, keeping Orlov safe.

The logjam at the bridge has been caused by a new checkpoint - swiftly set up to look for terrorist suspects 
Orlov's bodyguard get out of their cars - they'll look to hijack other cars at the far end of this traffic
Orlov's in the Mercedes and he urges his men to advance quickly across the bridge
Three well-armed police officers await at the far end
As the engagement begins, civilians start to pour out of their vehicles. Near the back of the traffic jam, they get in between Rainbow and the second mercenary group, making life difficult for the counter-terrorist team. 
Orlov's men force their way through the civilians and take control of the truck at the far end of the bridge
Rainbow work their way around the civilians and annihilate the mercenaries taking cover behind their car
The police gain reinforcements as another patrol has arrived, and they square off against Orlov as they get the truck in gear. The police officers' fire forces the mercenaries 
However, the two late arrivals are actually working for Orlov they gun down their fellow officers, allowing Orlov and his men to run to the checkpoint
The Rainbow team get through the panicking civilians without too much trouble and have almost caught up with Orlov
Their fire takes out the mercenaries, as the traitorous police dive into the checkpoint hut for cover
But before Rainbow can follow up and capture him, two of his bodyguards recover enough to escape! 
Rainbow fail to catch their quarry, but only by the skin of his teeth!
