— Level Description

Iron Clad is a downloadable Special Ops Mission Mode challenge in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.[1]

Overview[edit | edit source]

The player is either spawned inside a tank, callsign "Pit Boss", or as a ground unit. The player on the ground must escort the tank and blow up obstacles in the way while the player in the tank must drive the tank to a friendly LCAC for exfil. The player in the tank is the tank commander and has remote control over the turret (the view is of a camera on the turret) and the main gun, as well as the tank's movement. If playing this mission alone, the player will always spawn as a ground soldier and have to tell the tank to move forward or use its cannon on enemy troops.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This Special Ops mission goes in the opposite direction of "Goalpost".
  • Suicide bombers wear a different outfit than their survival mode counterparts.
  • Baseplate gives the orders, instead of Overlord.
  • The M4A1's ACOG Scope has a lower zoom level than the regular ACOG Scope, about the zoom level of a Red Dot Sight. This is also seen in the campaign mission "Down the Rabbit Hole".
  • The PMC victory, Inner Circle spawn/victory and the GIGN spawn are all heard in this mission
  • The starting loadout is actually different with two players than with one, the M4A1 will have a grenade launcher and the ACOG will have the correct zoom in co-op.
