Bolo finds this pleasing, but she would like more.
The Rajang is most likely the largest and longest river in Panau. Most of the river is relatively wide and its delta (in the Panau Tengah Bay) is the largest delta in Panau. Several different inlets can be found entering the middle-sections of the river. It is to be noted that the Rajang is technically a channel - not a river.
It's not possible to travel the entire river before the mission River Runs Red, because the Kem Rajang Floodgates and the Kem Sungai Floodgates are blocking the way. These are located in the northern part of the river and will be opened during the mission.
Those floodgates are very mysterious, because the purpose of a floodgate is to close a section of a river, to protect coastal settlements from rising water. Trouble is that there is no massive source of water between the two gate facilities and the gates couldn't be there to protect the small section of river from ocean storms either, because all of Panau has many coastal settlements, so it makes no sense to build the two facilities so close together in the middle of the river. It would only have made sense to build them at the opposite ends of the river (or possibly only to the southern end, to create the illusion that the middle of Panau is a lake that flows to the oceans).
The total length is over 14.5 km, while the length on all the currents is unknown, but that would be a very high number.
It's not possible to determine the amount of flowing water (in m3/s) by only the size of the river, because it's not possible to determine how fast it's flowing.
"Rajang" means "Choppy" in Malay.
The end in the Panau Gulf, in the influential territory of Ramai Rakyat Islands, is fairly small and ground, but all boats are able to go in there. Though, travelling a little more than a kilometer from the northern end and you will reach the Kem Sungai Floodgates, successfully blocking your way south before the mission River Runs Red. The northern floodgate is destroyed by an explosion during the mission, while the southern one will stay open.
Travelling a few hundred meters to the south, you will reach the Kem Rajang Floodgates. These will block your way if travelling from the south before the mission. Going further south, you will enter the middle part while coming out on a wide river section with one inlet on either side of it.
The middle part stretches from the wide section outside Kem Kuala Rajang, and passes through the desert landscape until it reaches south of Port Rajang Selatan. Then it goes over in a turn to the east and in south-east direction, into the green rainforest landscape around the delta.
The Rajang river delta is the largest delta in Panau. It has got more than 10 currents going out in the sea. A green rainforest grows in the area, and is a high contrast to the desert landscape west of the area. There's a lot of small villages here. The islands in the delta has got several wetlands and small water pools, usually close to the river currents.
Unfortunately, the Pemainan Racun Facility dumps their hazardous waste into the delta.
