NOTES
=========
1) I use 'units' and 'mecha' interchangeably. Mecha refers to anything that is
piloted in the game, so battlecruisers, tanks and jetfighters are also be
referred to as mecha for the purpose of this FAQ. Apologies if you get
confused.

2) Romanization is a tricky business, and for the most part, I can only guess
at names. Please take these with a pinch of salt. If you can prove that you
ARE correct and I am wrong, please inform me so I can revise my FAQ and give
you the credit you deserve.

3) What I wrote about gameplay details are educated guesses stemming from
results observed during the game. Should I be wrong, please feel free to
correct me. It's better to leave stuff on the boards rather than e-mail in my
case.

4) With regards to terms and names, I'll probably swap most of the English
terms with the Japanese ones someday once I can confirm everything and have
everything translated. This is why the seishin list is completely in Japanese
and while most of the other terms aren't. While it may make it more difficult
initially for you, the reader, to remember the seishin, I felt that using
literal translations for some things are too unpleasant. Sorry if you don't
feel the same way.

Row 1:
----------
Nekketsu : next attack executed does double damage, wasted if you miss with
  the attack. Doesn't work for Assist Attacks.

Tekagen  : next attack executed will leave the enemy alive with 10 HP if the
  attack would have killed the enemy normally. Doesn't work if the pilot's
  Skill rating is lower than that of the target's, I think.

Sogeki   : next attack has +2 to maximum range. Doesn't work on attacks of
  range 1.

Hirameki : the next attack on the unit will be automatically dodged.

Doryoku  : all EXP earned for the next attack will be doubled, wasted if you
  miss with the attack. Doesn't work for Assist Attacks.

Row 2:
----------
Ouen      : Casts Doryoku on the selected target.

Kouun     : all money earned for the next attack will be doubled, wasted if
  you miss with the attack. Doesn't work for Assist Attacks.

Shukufuku : Casts Kouun on the selected target.

Shuuchuu  : +30% to the unit's Accuracy and Evasion for one Turn.

Hicchuu   : Gives the unit 100% hitrate regardless of enemy defenses for one
  Turn. Can only be avoided by Hirameki.


Row 3:
----------
Kannou  : Casts Hicchuu on a target.

Teppeki : The unit will only take 1/4th of any damage inflicted upon it for
   this turn.

Kasoku  : The unit gets +3 to Movement for one move.

Kakusei : The caster will be allowed another turn after taking the
   current turn. This means that the unit can execute a move and/or attack,
   and then be free to take another move and/or attack again. With sufficient
   SP, another Kakusei can be cast again before the second move and/or attack
   to allow a third move and/or attack, and the process repeats infinitely. Or
   would if your units actually had that much SP.

Konjou  : The unit regains HP equal to 30% of its maximum HP.


Row 4:
----------
Dokonjou : The unit regains all lost HP.

Kiai     : All pilots in the unit gain 10 Morale.

Kihaku   : All pilots in the unit gain 30 Morale.

Shinrai  : The unit regains 2000 HP.

Yuujou   : Casts Dokonjou on a selected target.


Row 5:
----------
Hokyuu   : Resupplies a unit without loss of morale, unlike the Resupply
   command.

Saidou   : Resets a unit that has moved, thus allowing it another turn.
   Basically Kakusei which cannot be cast on oneself for obvious reasons.

Teisatsu : Allows the selected enemy unit's information to be viewed without
   having to attack it first.

Gekirei  : Gives all directly adjacent units +10 Morale.

Kenshi   : Gives each pilot in the selected unit +50 SP each.


Row 6:
----------
Totsugeki : Allows non-P type weapons to be used after moving. Lasts for one
   turn.

Chokugeki : Bypasses special defenses guarding the enemy. This includes
   barriers and Assist Defends, although not Bunshin.

Ai        : Casts Kasoku, Hicchuu, Hirameki, Nekketsu, Kiai, Kouun and Doryoku
  on the unit using it.

Shinnen   : Prevents status effects from being inflicted on the unit for one
  turn.

Inori     : Removes negative status effects on a unit.

**************************
* 2. PILOT ABILITY LIST  *
**************************

Note that abilities with levels are indicated as x+y(z) with z being the level
of ability currently possessed. Thus, an ability of 10+5x will cost the pilot
10 PP to buy the first time, 10+5(1)=5 to upgrade it from level 1 to 2,
10+5(2) = 20 from level 2 to 3 and so forth.

攻撃系 Attack Systems
-------------------------------
連続攻撃 (Combo, from SRT D)
This basically allows the pilot to hit multiple units in a straight line, with
a weapon/attack marked with a (C). Besides having this skill, the pilot must
be directly adjacent to the target, and the maximum number of targets that can
be hit in the line is equal to 1+Combo level. Also, there must not be a gap in
the line of enemy units, or your Combo will only extend that far. For example,
if @ is your unit with the ability and appropriate attack, and X is the enemy,

Case 1:

  @
   XXXX

No combo is possible, since @ is not directly adjacent to the enemy.

Case 2:

  @X XXX

No combo is possible, since there is a gap in the enemy lines.

Case 3:

  @XXX X

@ can hit up to 3 targets with Combo Lvl 2 or greater. The last one again
cannot be hit even with Combo Lvl 4 because there is a gap.
Combo maxes out at Level 4, costs15+10x PP to purchase.

カウンター (Counter)
Might trigger when attacked by an enemy. Allows your character to attack
before the enemy attacks if triggered. Higher levels increase chance of
triggering. Costs 20+5x PP to purchase.

インファイト (Infight)

Adds one to unit movement per 4 full levels of Infight possessed. Costs 20+5x
PP to purchase.

ガンファイト (Gunfight)
Increases attack value of all projectile-class weapons (possibly by 50 per
level). Adds one to range of projectile weapons per 4 full levels of Gunfight

防御系 Defense Systems

指揮官 (Commander)
The pilot radiates an aura, and all friendlies in the area covered by the aura
benefit from increased Hit and Evade rates. The aura is radial, with the
radius equal to Leadership Lvl + 1. To see the actual area covered during a
mission, leave your cursor over the unit carrying the pilot with the ability
for a second or two. Costs 30+10x, maxes out at Level 4.

ガード (Guard)
When the pilot reaches 130 morale or greater, the pilot's Defense increases
significantly. Costs 85 PP.

When the pilot reaches 130 morale or greater, the pilot's Accuracy and Evasion
increases significantly. Costs 85 PP.

Damage is a fraction of normal. Costs 50+10x PP to purchase. Maxes out at
Level 4.

連携攻撃 (Cooperative Attack)
Allows support attacks to be done at full damage. Costs 75 PP.

援護防御 (Assist Defend)
Allows the unit to substitute itself as the target of an attack against the
unit being assisted. Damage suffered is a fraction of the damage that would be
(since the unit which is Assist Defending is guarding.) Costs 50+10x PP to
purchase. Maxes out at Level 4.

SPアップ (SP Up)
Increases SP by 4 per level of ability. Costs 30+5x PP.

**************************
* 3. PILOT LIST          *
**************************

Pilots are listed under the following stat block:

  <Pilot name in Japanese characters>
  <Pilot name, or an approximation if I can't figure it out>

  [Natural]
  <List of pilot abilities possessed by the pilot naturally>

  [Ace]
  <The pilot's Ace Bonus when the Ace rating is awarded for over 50 kills>

  [Seishin]
  <Seishin list in seishin name, level acquired, SP cost>

There's some missing and incomplete seishin data will be be updated once I
find time to reach the end and test-hack the entire crew. Most of the rest
should be fine.

Notes for Ace Bonuses:
Apparently, Doryoku (x2 EXP) overrides all +EXP bonuses units will get from
kills instead of stacking. I presume this will be the same for Kouun (x2
Money).

* 4. MEMORY HACKING      *
**************************

All the cheats you should need are improved stats (which can be raised through
an infinite PP cheat, but assuming you're lazy...), more than 50 kills for the
Pilot Ace bonus, current PP, SP, morale, and possibly EXP. Increases in levels
through the EXP cheat does give you access to the pilot's seishin list and
increase their SP, but your stats do not improve, and more importantly, your
Natural pilot skills don't as well, so unless you wish to rehack the value
repeatedly (or until I manage/bother to discover how to set the Next Lvl EXP
perpetually to 1), it's not meaningful to hack EXP.

I trust you should know enough as to how to do use the cheat device in VBA, so
I won't explain here. I have not figured out how to convert these to
GameShark, nor do I have one, thus, I cannot help with regard to that. Further
more, memory locations are tied to pilot slots and pilots are moved along the
slots as you "unlock" more in the process of playing. The first pilot slot
will always belong to Kyousuke it seems, at a particular base address. The
rest follow a particular sequence. Using a friend's VBA save, this was
obtained for the intermission before the last (secret) stage.

02019764 Kyousuke
0201979c Refina
020197d4 Bullet
0201980c Zengar
02019844 Lamia

02019e64 Mai
02019e9c Yuuki
02019ed4 Carla
02019f0c Zeora
02019f44 Latouni

To compare, a savegame I had in the intermission before stage 30 had Latouni's
EXP at 0201995c, which by my friend's save, is Alfimy's. Since I have not
managed to figure out how the arrangements in terms of pilot slot order are
done, if you must cheat, it's best to just search by memory and convert as
necessary.

To edit a pilot's stat, first, search for the memory location of their EXP as
a 16-bit number. The offsets for the other stats are as follows:

Morale   : -06
SP       : -05
PP       : -20
Kills    : -22
Melee    : -2E
Missile  : -2C
Accuracy : -2A
Evasion  : -28
Defense  : -26
Skill    : -24

Remember, this is hexadecimal subtraction, not decimal.

War funds is just a 32-bit number at location 0201a908. Haven't messed with
weapons or optional parts yet.

ブレイカー無効 (Breaker System Nullifiers)

Nullifiers generally prevent certain types of weapon systems from being used
on the enemies. There is one that I've not encountered yet, but have heard of,
which is basically a Beam Absorber that uses Beam damage to heal the unit.

機体系
-------------------------------
HP回復(小) [HP Recovery, Small]
Unit recovers up to 10% of its maximum HP per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

HP回復(中) [HP Recovery, Medium]
Unit recovers up to 20% of its maximum HP per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

HP回復(大) [HP Recovery, Large]
Unit recovers up to 30% of its maximum HP per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

EN回復(小) [EN Recovery, Small]
Unit recovers up to 10% of its maximum EN per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

EN回復(中) [EN Recovery, Medium]
Unit recovers up to 20% of its maximum EN per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

EN回復(大) [EN Recovery, Large]
Unit recovers up to 30% of its maximum EN per Turn (after both player and
enemy, I believe?)

分身 [Bunshin]
Once the pilot's morale reaches or exceeds 130, the unit will have a 50%
chance of evading an attack directed at it should it be hit normally. The unit
will not escape Hicchuu-aided attacks, for obvious reasons.

ジャマー [Jammer]
The unit has a 50% chance of automatically disabling all missiles (as in the
weapon-type ミサイル) fired at it.

その他 (Miscellaneous)
-------------------------------
修理 (Repair)
Allows the unit to repair damage done to other units. EXP gained is based on
the amount healed and the levels of the repairperson and the repaired, with
more EXP for higher amounts of damage healed and with the repairperson being
of a lower level than the pilot of the unit being repaired. The amount of
damage that can be repaired is based on the repairperson's level, with higher
levels allowing for larger damage repair capabilities.

補給 (Resupply)
Allows the unit to resupply EN and all weapon ammunition to a unit. May not be
used after moving, unless the appropriate Pilot Ability is purchased.

変形 (Transformation)
Allows the unit to transform into another form.

合体・分離 (Combination/Separation)
The first allows the units to combine into a new form, the second for the
combined unit to separate into its component units. Note that EXP, PP and
kills are given to all the sub-pilots in the combined units.

* 10. WALKTHROUGH        *
**************************

Each scenario is listed under the format:

    ===========
    Stage xx
    ===========
    P: <skill point conditions)

    <text block>

where "P:" lists the conditions required for the scenario point. The text
block will basically outline the important things you'll need to take note of
on that scenario. As it is, the only exact known value of scenario points is
for unlocking a hidden stage, presumably if you manage to stay on Hard
difficulty all the way to the end. Currently, skill point conditions are based
on a maxed skill point total, ie, Hard after say Stage 03 or 04, and every
skill point earned. I have no idea if skill point conditions vary with
different difficulty settings, so be warned.

Enemy pilot stats seem to be raised to pretty incredible values in Hard. The
more mobile units such as the Gespensts and the Huckebeins will actually have
almost 10k HP, and can hit Daizengar (100 Morale, 2525 Armor, 154 Defense) for
over 2000 damage, which is abt 1/5 of its total HP, and to hit them, you will
usually have to employ Hicchuu, which I guess, is pretty why Hicchuu features
in almost every pilot's seishin list, and why there's a lot of Kannou around
this time. Of course, you only have that much SP, so for the average player or
someone who wants to try for all the skill points, it will save you some pain
if you actually finish the game a couple of times first to have some PP and
funds to play around with. Assuming you have enough cash to burn, you can
actually skimp on Evasion and spend on Accuracy. Add some targetter for that
little boost, and life will become that much easier.

===========
Stage 01
===========
P: Clear the map in 4 turns.

Kyousuke, Bullet and Excellens appear after Lamia takes her second turn
ingame. The Rion-Fs on the NW side won't move, so you have to rush them.

===========
Stage 02
===========
P: Defeat all units except the Garion Custom by turn 4

Have Ibis and Sley charge up with all their defensive seishin, attacking as
much as possible. That should leave less targets for the rest of your squad
when the come around at the start of turn 3.

===========
Stage 03
===========
P: Reduce the Rhinocerous' HP to 70% by turn 4.

===========
Stage 04
===========
P: Defeat all units except the Garion Customs by turn 4.

Leave Rai to fight on his own, while Kai deals with Arad and the Barrelions.
Kyousuke should be sent to support him with a Screw Module on his Alteisen,
while the rest rush eastward or north, as you see fit.

===========
Stage 05
===========
P: Destroy all the Rion-Fs by turn 4.

You still have only enough Screw Modules for one unit, so you still have
little choice but to leave the other two behind to rush for the Ace Point.

After all initial enemies are eliminated, a group of Barrelions will ambush
the Shirogane. If you do not want them firing at the Shirogane, have two units
positioned directly above and below the Shirogane. After 2 Barrelions are
downed, an event will take place and the story will end.

===========
Stage 06
===========
P: Destroy all but those piloted by named pilots by turn 4, or defeat one of
the named pilots rushing towards you.

Enemies appear after u knock Irm's Grungast down to 70% HP. Thus, you can have
this triggered in turn 1, albeit at high risk, since the Grungast is very
capable of downing the Alblade in one hit. However, since you will be fighting
with Irm's Grungast, I suggest you use the G-Revolver only to minimize damage
dealt. Make use of Ryuusei's Combo attack (the Blade Tonfas) whenever possible
to speed things up.

===========
Stage 07
===========
P: Defeat 4 enemies by turn 2 of the player phase.

Your best bet is to charge westwards for the Rion-Fs. Turn 2 ends with new
enemies appearing. These enemies have Beam Coats.

===========
Stage 08
===========
P: Defeat all units except those piloted by named characters by turn 4.

===========
Stage 09
===========
P: Destroy all but one unit, then reduce that one unit to 5% of its HP by Turn
2.

This mission is interesting in that it requires you to capture your enemies
alive. There are two waves, so to make it easy, reserve 20 SP for Refina and
Sean respectively in the Hiryu Kai for Hicchuu and Tekagen.

For the first wave, just park Leona in her Garion Custom right in the midst of
the enemies with Shuuchuu and spare one to be shot by the Hiryu Kai with
Tekagen.

Dealing with the first set of enemies brings out a 2nd wave. There is no Ace
Point tied to this, but the enemies are generally too strong for the
Gespensts, so it's best to let Tasuku and Leona deal with this. Again, spare
one for the Hiryu Kai to Tekagen.

FIRST BRANCH:
This is the first path branch you'll encounter. The first option is to go to
Ethiopia, and the other is for the Moon. Ryuusei and Excellen will head for
the Moon, while the rest go to Ethiopia.


   |
   |
   |
   |


===========
Stage 10: Ethiopia
===========
P: Wipe out everything in 6 turns.

Nothing special, just charge forward and assault their position. They'll move
to intercept you, with the first three groups moving in turn one, and the rest
in the next turn or presumably when you're near enough. Wiping out everyone
brings yet a second group, with a set of Gespensts from the south and two
boss units from the west. As usual, the bosses are pretty much unkillable, so
there's no need to save your Kouun and Doryoku for them.

===========
Stage 10: Moon
===========
P: Defeat all the enemies within 3 turns.

===========
Stage 11: Ethiopia
===========
P: Wipe out everything in 3 turns.

Nothing difficult here, though I'm not sure if evacuation of friendly forces
is a must for this mission. Destroying the first batch will bring in Alfimy
and another.

===========
Stage 11: Moon
===========
P: Defeat all the enemies within 5 turns.

===========
Stage 12: Ethiopia
===========
P: Clear the map in 10 turns.

After wiping out the initial squad and 2 Rhinocerous', more reinforcements
will arrive and approach to the attack. Deal with them accordingly.

===========
Stage 12: Moon
===========
P: All AI-controlled V-Lions must survive.

===========
Stage 13: Ethiopia
===========
P: Protect the Barrelions.

Here, you play the other group, basically Excellen and Ryuusei who were
supposed to rendezvous with Tasuku and co. Ryuusei is sortied in the R-1 this
time. You lose if any enemies enter the base area, and thus, they will only
attack you if they happen to be close enough on their way there.

The enemy fighters are hard to hit and hit hard, so use Shuuchuu and cover as
much as possible, with Excellen taking the left flank and Leona taking the
right, with the rest in reserve. Leona and Excellen should keep pushing
forward and taking out all the enemies possible, and by the time they get near
the base.

After wiping out the first wave, two squads (each consisting of 3 Rion-Fs and
a Garion Custom), will appear. Leona and Excellen should be able to position
themselves for maximum counterattack opportunities, and the rest will be just
mop up.

After that, a last ditch attempt will be made by your enemies and two sets of
Barrelions will be thrown at your team. The other squad will appear and
regroup with yours, and this is the end of the first path branch.

===========
Stage 13 : Moon
===========
P: Shoot down 9 enemies within 2 turns

===========
Stage 14:
===========
P: Defeat 15 or more enemies within 4 turns, boss mech excluded.

One Rion-F, 3 enemy fighters. Retreat eastward. The cavalry appears in the
form of your squad, but enemy reinforcements arrive on the scene as well.
Ratouni and Rai will have Shuuchuu and Kasoku cast on them. Ideally, Ratouni
would be in a decent mech and sent forward to weaken as much of the enemy as
you can for the skill point. Rai will do fine in his R-2. Rest should be
pretty okay, tactically. The situation is fairly dire, so don't try too hard
to do anything else after the skill point is obtained.

===========
Stage 15
===========
P: Defeat 15 or more enemies within 4 turns

Well, you have three skilled fighters, so send each to tackle one squad on
their own with the Hiryu Kai in reserve. More enemies will pop out around the
end of enemy turn 2 or so. One of the boss units has the ability to immobilize
your mecha, so be extra careful. Kill as much as you can while retreating
away.

Apparently, if you can off the two lesser bosses first, then kill Mekiboss
last, you get 3 great items and 2 great weapons.

===========
Stage 16
===========
P: Allow Ryouto to advance far enough without taking any hits.

Radha in a Schutzwald, vs a group of enemies. Turn 2 has Arad appearing to
assist. Between the both of them, it is possible for you to wipe out
everything by the end of Enemy Turn 2.

This brings in a new wave of enemies, as well as Rin, Rio and Ryouto in a
Huckebain, the AM Gunner, and a ship. Ryouto will head out, and your mission
is to protect him from getting killed. As with all AI, he will just charge
forward to attempt an escape. As it is, I don't see how to do this skillfully.
All you can do is to attempt to kill off as many enemies nearby to minimize
the odds of Ryouto being hit. If he gets by unscathed by the end of Turn 4,
the point will be yours due to an event on Turn 5. The boss is pretty hard to
hit, so make full use of Radha's SP Regen and her Kannou.

===========
Stage 17
===========
P: Destroy all of the enemies by Player Turn 3.

Grungast Nishiki and Garion vs a small group of enemies. Careful placement and
use of Seishin should net you the skill point within the 2nd Enemy Phase
itself, assuming nothing goes horribly wrong (which will usually be the
Alterion getting nuked).

After that is done, an enemy boss will charge towards the base, only to be
intercepted by the man formerly known as Elzam (goes by Rehzel now?). This
will bring up even more enemies, and all you get is Ibis and Rehzel in the
Garion and Huckebein Tronbe. Even in the Tronboe, Rehzel is outmatched, and
you have yet another stupid allied ship to safeguard. To add insult to injury,
Ibis is fairly useless in this battle due to her currently available seishin
set so it's best to be cautious. The battle will end as soon as the ship
retreats to the specified area, so try to kill as much as possible before it
ends.

===========
Stage 18
===========
P: Clear the map of all Inspector units, in four turns from their appearance.

Over here, Ibis had only like... 14% chance of hitting Sley, without Accuracy
boosting parts. If you can win, you get EXP and PP, otherwise, life probably
goes on.

After more events, you'll be surrounded by Inspector units. Just send Kusuha
to the east with Hicchuu and Teppeki, and Retzel to the west with Shuuchuu
(and Hicchuu, if you like). Masaki Andou will appear in his Cybaster to the
south to assist after a couple of enemies are downed.

===========
Stage 19
===========
P: Destroy every enemy except for Vindell's ZwaizerGain (will retreat in 3
turns.)

Arad and Lamia are sent out in their respective units. Zeora appears with a
couple of Gespensts. After further events, more reinforcements appear.
Zeora cannot be killed here, her HP will just reset. When Vindell appears, the
rest will run away, so just kill as much as fast as possible. Focus on killing
enemies till one other unit besides Vindell is left. Then, if you feel
inclined to, save the game and take a couple of potshots at Vindell for the
EXP before finishing off the last unit for the skill point.

SECOND BRANCH:
First sets you on the Abiano path, second sends you to Izu Base. For the
first, you go off with Irm, Viletta, Radha, Ibis, Kai, Leona and Arad. The
second path lets you use RyuKouOu earlier, while the first leads you to Arad's
Wild Wuerger.


   |
   |
   |
   |


===========
Stage 20: Abiano
===========
P: Complete the objective by turn 4.

The objective is to kill all ランドグリーズ (Landgreeze?) units by turn 5
without entering the city . Just stick two agile units right outside the wall
near each cluster of enemies, and they'll move towards you naturally.

After these have been eliminated, a couple of events will take place and some
enemy reinforcements will arrive. Deal with them normally.

===========
Stage 20: Izu Base
===========
P: Achieve Victory within 4 turns.

===========
Stage 21: Abiano
===========
P: Clear the map of all enemies in 8 turns.

There are two Rhinocerous down, and you only have Lee in the Shirogane. Moving
directly south by turn 3 will result in an ambush with the Shirogane removed
from play and Ibis added in with the Asterion. Move Ibis forward, and don't
bother dealing with Sley, just dodge her attacks. Eventually, a story event
will take place, leading into more reinforcements for you.

It helps to have a decently upgraded Asterion in terms of Mobility to weaken
the enemies first before friendly reinforcements arrive. For once, the boss
can be defeated, though she retreats at 11k HP or so.

===========
Stage 21: Izu Base
===========
P: Achieve Victory within 4 turns. (That is, get one of your units next to the
transport.)

===========
Stage 22: Abiano
===========
P: Clear the map in 5 turns.

You start off with Arad vs Zeora. He's in an unupgraded Rion-V, so it's not
good odds for you. Use your seishin wisely, for you need to do enough damage
on her unit to trigger the next event. The Rion-V can take only one hit from
Zeora, so if you want to save SP, go forward with Hicchuu and take the first
hit, to limit her options, use Hirameki/Hicchuu on round 2 and ONLY
counterattack, and on round 3, take recast Hicchuu/Hirameki and attack on your
turn to trigger the event and bring in the reinforcements. Attack with the
Railgun for maximum damage.

After friendly reinforcements arrive, Arad will still be enjoying the effects
of the Hicchuu seishin you cast earlier. Take whatever advantage you can out
of this, because this leaves you 3 more player turns inclusive of this (well,
at least I got it done by Player Turn 3) to earn the skill point, and I assume
that means finishing off Archibald and Zeora. Zeora will retreat after
damaging her sufficiently, killing her results in a GAME OVER. Archibald will
not retreat.

===========
Stage 22: Izu Base
===========
P: Clear the map within 10 turns.

===========
Stage 23: Abiano
===========
P: Reduce enemy forces to 15 units in 3 turns.

After the enemy has been thinned down to 15 units, more reinforcements arrive.
Eliminate everything, and Ouka is sent to deal with you. She's pretty mean,
having Hirameki, Shuuchuu and Hicchuu cast on her every turn. Damage her
enough, and she'll be pulled out, and you'll have to fight Surisaz, who
benefits from the same auto-seishin set. Damage him enough, and the scenario
is over.

===========
Stage 23: Izu Base
===========
P: Defeat Agiiha's Silverwind.

===========
Stage 24
===========
P: Within 7 Player Phase Turns, defeat all enemy units except for Alfimy's.

You start out with Excellen alone and one Einst. Destroying the first brings
out another four. After those are nuked, yet another four pop out. And after
those are done, 3 pop out, but you get some reinforcements. After nuking those
as well, 7 enemy units pop out with Alfimy. Kyousuke appears after Alfimy's
unit is damaged sufficiently.

===========
Stage 25:
===========
P: Clear the map within 9 turns.

After you kill enough enemies, reinforcements spawn, so do not waste time.
There are about three or four waves. Eventually, after all the enemies are
terminated, you'll be left with one boss. Lower its HP sufficiently to trigger
the formation of SRX, and one more time to end the battle.

===========
Stage 26
===========
P: Within 3 Turns, destroy all enemies but the Laz Angriff and Sledgelmil

Lamia ... dies? Oh well, straightforward advance and smash mission, though the
time limit is quite tight. The Laz Angriff and Sledgemill will retreat after
all enemies have been eliminated.

===========
Stage 27
===========
P: Reduce the number of enemies to less than 9 (Not counting the 3 bosses) in
two turns from when the sub-objective is activated.

Great. Mai decides to leave in an unupgraded Mass Production Huckebein Mk-II.
After she gets hit once, Ouka appears and a major event takes place. After
that, you're left with Mai, Ryuusei, Aya, Ratouni and Arad. Mai and Aya are
totally immobilized.

After another turn, our friendly forces come under heavy fire from enemy
reinforcements, but Viletta and Rai appear in the R-Gun Powered and R-2
Powered respectively and mow them down. One thing leads to another and the SRX
team manage to employ Variable Formation to form SRX, and our forces regroup
on one side of the island. More enemy reinforcements arrive.

When enough enemies are killed (to fulfill the sub-objective), friendly
reinforcements arrive. Too bad no extra enemies for you to deal with, and that
submarine boss runs off too. Ouka retreats when damaged sufficiently and takes
Zeora with her, so take out Zeora first, and then Ouka.

===========
Stage 28
===========
P: Shoot down 15 enemy units within 6 turns.

Lamia returns in the Angelgoug (yay!). As it is, the Angelgoug has received
+300 to all weapons power. For some reason though, the max stat upgrade is
disabled, if you've upgraded it that much. You can still select it again once
the battle is over, but it does mean that you won't benefit from it right now.
The enemies won't take the offensive for now, so just keep dodging Axel's Soul
Gain for two turns until the cavalry arrives.

After downing 15 enemies, the enemy battleship warps out, and more enemy
reinforcements warp in. Wipe them all out and put a large dent in Axel for the
end to this stage.

===========
Stage 29
===========
P: Achieve the victory condition within 4 turns (Get Masaki or Ibis to the
designated spot).

Downing a Barrellion will lead into an event where you're ambushed by Rion-Vs.
Sley swoops in to help and destroys them in one barrage. Regretably, she
doesn't have her boss-class Carion anymore and she's a neutral unit (ie,
friendly but unusable), but she does come in with good stats and at level 30.

Once you reach the indicated location, friendly reinforcements will arrive and
Sley will leave. After a battleship crosses a certain point, more enemy
reinforcements arrive. You win either by moving both your battleships into the
clear zone guarded by the Barrelions earlier, or by nuking all other enemies.

===========
Stage 30
===========
P: Achieve the victory condition within 4 turns. (Get Retzel to the designated
spot.)

You begin with the Tronbe and the Sanshiki. Rush them westwards ASAP and make
use of the base terrain in front of the Barrelions for cover. Get there fast
enough and focus both fire and counter-fire on the Barrelions which are
directly blocking your path. After getting through, an event will take place
and you'll only be left with Zengar, though he'll have Teppeki and Nekketsu
cast on him for free. After a while, more stuff will happen, and Wotan Ymir
will appear on the scene with his Sledgemir as a neutral. Zengar will be left
for dead (pretty much so, with the Sanshiki totally immobilized and reduced to
10% HP). One more turn, more events, and bam, the Daizengar! Unupgraded
though. Shucks. And still immobilized. What to do but yet to pass another
turn... to speed things up, let yourself get hit till the Daizengar is reduced
to critical. After that, an event will take place where Wotan tosses Zengar
his Zankantou and Zengar dishes out some major damage to Vigan. As if that
wasn't enough, Retzel busts out in his Ausenzaider and together, they perform
a really painful-looking combination attack on Vigan. After that, friendly
reinforcements arrive. Oh, and the Daizengar will be magically upgraded once
he gets his Zankantou :P Geez, reminds me of Disgaea... Anyway, the
Ausenzaider is not upgraded, but on the right terrain, he should still be able
to pull through unharmed for the most part. The boss has left after that
massive thrashing, so just advance your forces and wipe out the rest.

===========
Stage 31
===========
P: Clear the map within 9 turns. (This will require you to defeat all of the
enemies, and take down one of the bosses enough to make the pair retreat - I
took down Shikarogu.  Then, you will have to get all of your units to the
designated area.)

Not a lot of fun here, if you're going for the skill point. Lots of enemies
with high HP and good evasion, bleh. And to make matters worse, once you've
advanced one of your battleships far enough, Shikarogu will ambush the Hagane,
removing 1/2 its HP. Map weapons are very handy here, so bring a couple of
units with these.

===========
Stage 32
===========
P: Within 5 turns, defeat all of the enemies except for the Garugau and the
Gureitaakin.

You start off with Yuuki and Carla in a Laz Angriff and Langriz respectively,
and with you, four Rion-Vs and a Rhinocerous. As usual, you may only control
Yuuki and Carla, so move them to the attack. Yuuki has Hit & Away, so it
should help a little.

By Turn 3, or possibly when all the Rion-Vs have been shot down, friendly
reinforcements arrive. Quite a few of your top units will be sortied
(Kyousuke, Excellens, Bullet/Kusuha, Zengar, Ryuune, Lamia, Guilliam). Anyway,
this realistically means that you have only 3 turns to wipe out everything, so
get to it.

After everything has been wiped out (except the bosses), one thing leads to
another and, well, more enemies appear for you to wipe out.

===========
Stage 33
===========
P: Within 4 turns, defeat all of the enemies except for the Wild Falcon.

Excellen is taken away by Alfimy and the Einsts. Arad, Shine and Latouni
arrive on the scene too late, but they still get a greeting from Zeora and her
squad. The skill point is easy, though I basically left the stage for Shine to
gain kills. Do not destroy Zeora's unit, it'll result in a Game Over. Reducing
her unit to abt 1/3 HP will bring on the next set of events, which has Ouka
appearing with reinforcements and shooting up everyone, which results in
everyone being immobilized and underwater. You can shoot back, but that might
not mean much. Hold off long enough, and reinforcements will arrive after a
long event sequence.

THIRD BRANCH:
First sets you on the Earth Cradle path, second sends you to Space.

   |
   |


===========
Stage 34:  Earth Cradle Route
===========
P: Within 6 turns, achieve the Victory Condition (get the Kurogane to the
designated area).

===========
Stage 34:  Space Route
===========
P: Destroy all enemies in 8 turns.

After advancing the Hiryu Kwai past a certain point, an event will take place,
and it will be surrounded by enemies. Sub-objective will be revealed at this
point. After enough enemies are killed, even more will appear near the exit
area.

===========
Stage 35: Earth Cradle Route
===========
P: Within 3 player phases, shoot down 11 enemies.

**************************
* 11. SECRETS            *
**************************

Some of these may have been mistranslated when I tried to read it off JP
sites. The link is provided for those of you who are capable to read it
yourself.

1) Not much of a secret, but you get another stage to play with, and possibly
some change in the ending, if you finish Stage 41 with 35 skill points, or
more.


2) Complete the game once to get access to EX Mode, which is much harder than
your normal game. PP costs for all pilot improvements are doubled, and no
weapon upgrades are possible. Complete it one more time for Special Mode?


3) Shishiou Blade + G-Impact Stake + Hagane no Tamashii + High Performance AI
+ Yuusha no Akashi:
Apparently, in Stage 15, you can get some nice equips and weapons if you
manage to kill off both lesser boss units before killing Mekiboss.


4) Wild Wuerger L:
[From GameFAQs]
--------------------------- start --------------------------------------------

From: ShadowRift | Posted: 2/7/2005 8:33:42 PM | Message Detail
Since there seems to be some confusion about getting this unit, this is what
I've observed thus far about how to get it.

1. You seem to need to pick the space route at the first split
2. Second split doesn't matter
3. Arad needs 50 kills by stage 27
4. To keep the unit, Mai needs to get 5 kills with it in stage 27.

I'm not 100% sure about whether you need to go space route at the first split,
but the only playthrough I chose not to I didn't get the Wilger L. I know the
second split doesn't matter, and Arad definitely needs 50 kills by stage 27.

Just now, I played the stage and Mai got 4 kills, and afterwards the Wild
Wilger L mysteriously vanished. I reloaded and got her 10 kills, and it
remained after the stage. Thus, the crucial number may actually be 10, not 5.

Are you sure it's not just 5 kills, and not with the mecha?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

From: ShadowRift | Posted: 2/7/2005 8:45:02 PM | Message Detail
Ah, yeah, that's entirely more likely. Mai probably just needs a certain kill
count by the end of stage 27, either 5 or 10.

--------------------------- end --------------------------------------------

From http://ground2.moo.jp/srwog2/koneta.htm

In stage 19, defeat four or more units with Arad's Alblade, and have him at
Lvl 25 with 50 kills by Stage 23 by the Abiano path, or Lvl 19 with 44 kills
by the other route. Mai will be sortied in the Wild Wuerger-L on Stage 27.



5. A Special Mode is unlockable as well, though the specifics of the mode will
be provided when I can bug my friend to translate, or gather enough energy to
do it myself.


6. Boost Hammer:
From http://ground2.moo.jp/srwog2/koneta.htm
The Boost Hammer weapon can be obtained on stage 16. Arad must kill everything
on his own within the first 4 turns. Radha is allowed to help damage the
units. There is no restriction as to how the kills need to be achieved,
weapon-wise.


7. Gespenst Mk-II S
From http://ground2.moo.jp/srwog2/koneta.htm
Kai must have 55 kills and be at Level 35 by Stage 33. The unit will be
provided midway during the Earth Cradle route, or at the end of the branch
when both forces reunite.


8. Neo Chakram Shooter + G-Impact Stake:
From Mellow RG on GFAQs: "It's really easy to get these. Just make sure
Daizengar doesn't any kill one single enemy during its debut in mission 30.
You are free to kill anyone with Tronbe and Sanshiki, though. You will get
these weapons after you choose the third route split. (after mission 33)"



9. Graviton Launcher
From http://ground2.moo.jp/srwog2/koneta.htm
Killing all enemies with Viletta in her Huckebein Mk-II M in Stage 6 will
provide you with the Graviton Launcher equipped on her unit in Stage 15.

From: FlamingHopps67 | Posted: 2/14/2005 9:12:42 AM | Message Detail

Found the above link...

The proceedure of acquiring the Huckebein Mk III-R is a little different than
what's been listed.

1.) Scenario 18 - Retsuel (?) has 35 kills by the end of the scenario.
2.) Scenario 30 - Acquire the scenario's skill point. [Retsuel makes it to the
indicated flashing square (Tesla Labs)]
3.) Scenario 33 - The six Alpha archetypes [Rio, Ryouto, Leona, Tasuku, Brit,
Kusuha] have combined experience levels add up to 185. [Roughly averaged to
Level 31 for each character].
4.) If all conditions are met...Leona is assigned to this unit instead of the
Mk-III Trombe. [I think I read this sentence right.]

----------------------------- end --------------------------------------------


11. SRX Morale Up Trick
Equip two Neji Hachimakis (ねじハチマキ) on the R-1 for a total morale boost
of +20. After you add in the Ace bonus, Ryuusei will start with a total of 125
Morale in battle. This of course carries over when merging into SRX. Not
something overtly special, but a nice trick that I didn't think of personally.

Tips:
Axel will target to Ramia so you don't needed to fight him to trigger the
event. Axel will chase after Ramia.
After the first conversation and battle with Axel, run as far as you can and
hope you will out run Axel's range attack.(play chicken with Axel)

Lamia Fighting Axel(Starting after round two)
once - Vysaga requirement met
Twice - Ash Saber requirement met(Vysaga requriement cancel)
Three time - Angelgu upgrade.

Before end of stage 24 Lamia killcount reach 55+

[More Specifics from another thread]
After Arad reach Selina, re-enforcement will come(Axel).
The number of battle between Lamia & Axel will be affected the future unit.
---During the first battle, Lamia and Axel will have one pre-battle
concersation and a battle.(Battle Count: 1)
You get Vysaga and Powered Angelgu.
---If you attack Axel or Axel fight you again(no conversation this time).
(Battle Count: 2)
You get Ash Saber and Powered Angelgu.
---If you fight him/he fight you again and repeat...(Battle count:
3->4->5->6... and etc....)
You only get Angelgu.

Anyways, Axel will be homing to attack Lamia so no needed to chase and fight
him. After the first battle, you have to flee like a chicken and keep escaping
Axel's attack range. (movement booster items helps here a lot)

Axel and Selina will flee when the 6 digit boss arrive.
