Here's a guide on how to get the S-rank on the main mission called Ground Zeroes. Play it on Normal difficulty. You can easily get an S-rank without playing on hard so why make it difficult?

To get the S-rank you have to be quick (I got after clearing the mission in about 11 minutes), get through the mission without being detected (Reflex mode will be your best friend) and without killing anybody (use the silenced tranq. gun by pressing down on the d-pad)

I will try to explain it as best as possible on how I did it. But if you're struggling or don't really know what I mean watch the video at the end of the solution. Any feedback on where I could improve the text guide would be appreciated!

At the beginning of the mission wait until the search light is gone and move along the right wall. Climb up, follow the path and drop down to the road. Now follow the road to your left until there it splits to the right. Go to the right but immediately jump over the fence on your left side. Walk between the tents there and afterwards turn to your right again to get back to a road. If you've done this super fast you'll have to wait until the jeep is gone.

Run towards the camp where Chico is being held. You'll have to run to get close to the guard on the road there. Reflex mode will kick in, making him an easy target to tranq.

Stay close to the wall on the left side. There will be a guard on the cliff on your left and one in the camp. Wait on your position above until the guard at the cliff turns his back to you. Run towards him and tranq him. Get into the camp and to Chico fast enough and the other guard won't notice.

After you picked up Chico you'll want to leave the same way you got in. But watch out, the second guard will be to your right just as you leave the prisoner area. Tranq him and move on. Follow the cliffside until you can walk down to a small ledge. It will lead you to the first place where you can call in the evac chopper. Just be quick and the guards on the road won't notice.

After the chopper picked up Chico you want to climb up the wall in front of you. Follow the wall on the right side until you arrive at the road. Wait until the truck driver gets back to his vehicle and tranq the guard on your left. Now hop onto the back of the truck.

Stay on the back of the truck until you see a small building on your right side. Jump off and crawl underneath the building. On the other side you will find an open sewer. Crawl through it. Get out of it and stick to the right wall to get the admin building.

Now you want to haul ass sticking to the left wall. Right after the first generator (or whatever it is) will be a guard. Run up to him and hit RT to melee him. Move forwards towards the stairs but watch out for the camera there. Get down and sneak past the guard. At the bottom you can now free Paz.

Almost there! You want to get out of there the same way you got in. Wait until the guards stopped talking. When the guard is going up the stairs follow him and take him out. Watch out for the camera again! To get the guard in front of the door you want to get up onto the walkway on your left side. Tranq him and get to the open area.

You want to use the evac where you started the mission. Stick to the right wall and follow it all the way around. After a while you'll see an AA gun. Tranq both guards next to it. Follow the right side again until there will be a spot where you can walk down the hill.

Get to the street in front of you. There will be one guard there that you can easily take out. Either sneak up on him or run up to him and take him out using Reflex mode.

There is only one more guard between you and the S-rank! Don't follow the road. Instead you'll want to stay on the right side of the fence. At the end of the fence you want to take a sharp right to get a guard house right around the corner. You need to get to the door or you probably won't be able to take out the guard. When you tranqed him just get to the fence leading to the area where you started the mission. Call in the chopper, get Paz in there and voilà you should be done!
