And that Bonus Disc includes everything from 2 Splinter Cell Maps to 4 Island Thunder Maps. Check it:

The new Splinter Cell content includes two new missions involving the Russian nuclear submarine Vselka. Sam is back in his "Snake Eyes" stealth outfit again as he infiltrates a submarine base and then the submarine itself to stop nuclear warheads from falling into the wrong hands.

The Ghost Recon Island Thunder content includes four brand new maps:

Aurora - A barren nighttime desert scenario with campfires and a walled compound. You have to prevent friendly troops from being ambushed
Riverbed - Desert canyons are separated by a dried-up river and road with a useless bridge. You have to neutralize and enemy stronghold
Roadblock - An intersection with an old fortress and hospital is littered with debris. You help man the roadblock and fight off attacking rebels.
Tank - A narrow road with bridges that cross canyons a river. You help escort a supply convoy.

They are exclusive according to

And to squash any rumors...

The new maps for both games were likely intended to be downloadable content at some point, but using the popularity of Ghost Recon:Island Thunder and Splinter Cell to leverage early sales of Rainbow Six 3 makes plenty of sense if you're Ubi Soft. Plus the company gets to show off its spiffy new logo sooner rather than later.
