Since we can pull High-Gs in the game, the annoying part with the UAVs is alleviated somewhat. It's not Sulejmani's level of annoyance. The gunfight with ADF-11 over Lighthouse though... now that's pushing it.
In my opinión the mission 5 is one of the worst. It is really good untill You kill all enemies. After that It ll spam fighters squadrons really easy to shot down making the end of the mission very repetitive.
And at Mission 7. When You have to destroy the fuel truks is really bored too
Faceless soldier is at least unique. Imo, every mission has something better than Charge the Enemy. Charge the Enemy is just the most basic mission of the game. 444, for me, is similar, but it has much better dialog, music, it has a takeoff and a landing.
