    The plot centers on the American First Family, and the President of the United States, it was returning from a function in Chicago, Illinois when their convoy was ambushed by heavily armed terrorists. In the resulting confusion, the terrorists managed to capture the entire First Family, and are demanding the release of their leader (the dictator) in exchange for the safe return of the president.

    TRIVIA
    Silent Scope was released in March 1999.

    Cobra and Hornet, the 2 bosses for stage 1 have their codenames based on Konami's Cobra Hardware (which runs the 1997 fighting game "Fighting Bujitsu") and Hornet hardware (which runs Silent Scope).

    The twin bosses codenamed 'Tom and Jerry' have their code name inspired by the cartoon cat and mouse duo of the same name.

    The female boss, Monica is probably named after Monica Lewinsky who was the intern involved in a scandal with then president Bill Clinton.
