Four spies from MI6, the United Kingdom’s intelligence service, were sent out to record activities at four locations in four countries near the Caspian Sea. They set up stakeouts at an embassy, a nightclub, a prison, and an island compound. They were each armed with a different remote control vehicle and had different cameras (night vision, low-light, 100x zoom, and thermal) to complete their mission.

Figure out which country each spy went to, along with the location they were monitoring, and which camera they used, mounted on which remote control drone.

» The island was being scoped by the R/C boat, but not with the night vision camera.

» The embassy being watched was located in Azerbaijan. Agent 005 was not in Kazakhstan.

» Agent 007 went to Uzbekistan, but was not controlling the R/C car. Agent 004 was scoping out the club.

» The embassy was not being monitored with the low-light camera.

» When the spy who had the R/C helicopter realized he couldn’t get close enough to the dance floor, he used the 100x zoom camera.

» The thermal camera was used on the prison, but was not mounted on the R/C car.

» Agent 006 was not in Tajikistan. He was scoping the island compound, but not using the R/C plane.
