Deleting the DLC pack and then attempting to load a save in which the character has this perk will cause the game to freeze at the loading screen. On the other hand, a save in which the character has completed the simulation but doesn't have this perk won't cause the game to freeze, however all items obtained from Operation: Anchorage will no longer exist.
