Eventually, Lance drops him on the ground to retrieve the money in the building. Tommy enters the eastern mansion and fights his way through, killing several gang members and eventually making his way up to the roof where he collects the money. Lance reappears to collect Tommy and they fly back to Diaz's mansion.

The name of the mission is a reference to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, which was used as a base by the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Other references to the Vietnam War include the use of the M60, a weapon equipped on the UH-1 Huey which was used during the Vietnam War.
When the Maverick passes under the Links Bridge, if the player looks to the rear, a Spand Express worker can be spotted jumping off the bridge into the water below. The camera must be pointed behind the helicopter to see this.
The Maverick seen in the cutscene before the mission is orange-colored and has slide rear doors, similar to Police controlled Police Mavericks, but once the mission starts, the helicopter reverts to a normal, swing door, red-colored Maverick.
While flying to Prawn Island, a Sparrow and a Sea Sparrow can be seen flying away from it. This is the only time in the game where these two helicopters are controlled by NPCs.
Despite not being visible until Diaz calls him over, Lance is fully animated during the part of the intro cutscene when Diaz is talking to Tommy and also reacts appropriately when Diaz throws the vase out of frustration.
