     I. Introduction & Current Status
     --------------------------------
    
        The purpose of this guide is document the fastest 300pt. S-Rank possible
     for listed missions. It is recommended that players first strive to complete
     documented missions without aid in order to build individual strategies.
     Once sound tactical background has been gathered, players are encouraged to
     compare strategies and challenge those documented within the guide.
    
        As evidence to support listed records, day-by-day walkthroughs have
     been included. However, performing and documenting the work that provides
     information for such walkthroughs is a grueling and meticulous task -
     meaning that progress of this guide will continue a snail's pace and may
     possibly never be completed. Additionally, this guide will make an effort
     to never deploy neotanks, as players may not have access to such units.
    
        Concerning general layout, each mission has three sections: a documention
     of the earliest day a mission can be completed with a 300pt. S-Rank (a.k.a.
     the time to tie or, possibly, beat), a list of strategies that will help in
     completing the mission with the "earliest perfect S-Rank," and a day-by-day
     walkthrough that implements those strategies.
    
        In addition to mission documentation, 'General Tips & Strategies' details
     certain tactics and information often helpful in achieving a 300pt. S-Rank.
     Any questions or concerns about the guide should be directed to the e-mail
     address listed in the document header.

     III. General Tips & Strategies
     ------------------------------
    
     -Talk is boring-
    
     If you'd like to skip all the incessant talking of the COs, use the Start
     button instead of the A button.
    
    
     -Don't know your CO's strengths and weaknesses? Find out!-
    
     Instead of using the in-game menu for solely saving and ending your turn,
     check out the "CO" and "Intel" options. The "CO" option specifically
     explains the statuses of units, powers, and personailities for both
     allied and enemy CO's during a mission. Additionally, if you're unsure
     as to which units have been upgraded or degraded (in relation to firepower,
     movement range, and attack range), scroll all the way down, past the CO
     description, to find a chart detailing each unit's penalties and bonuses
     for the chosen CO.
    
    
     -Finding lab maps grants access to missions that, upon completion, will allow
      deployment of neotanks-
    
     Careful attention to game dialogue will often reveal missions in which
     specific cities can be captured, allowing access to lab maps and, in
     consequence, hidden missions.
    
     Lab Map Missions:
    
        Orange Star - Flak Attack (Campaign)/Andy's Time (Hard Campaign)
        Blue Moon - Toy Box 
        Yellow Comet - Show Stopper
        Green Earth - Sinking Feeling
    
     Specific locations have not been listed to ensure enjoyment and fustration
     of a hunt. Nevertheless, information on the specific locations can be found
     elsewhere. Additionally, failure to capture the specific city in "Flak Attack"
     is overlooked by the Campaign - the lab map and hidden mission will be
     granted upon completion of "Flak Attack."
    
    
     -Keep units from damage in direct combat by placing them next to enemy units
      that cannot effectively attack-
    
     This technique is useful in blocking the AI's advance through "choke points," 
     such as bridges or passes between mountains. Once a direct-combat enemy unit
     is adjacent to an allied unit, it will attack. However, the AI is unwilling to
     lose or severely damage a unit in a skirmish that heavily favors the player.
     Therefore, if an enemy unit cannot attack without taking severe damage, has
     more than 2HP, and cannot join with another unit, the AI will command it to
     wait, prohibiting a stronger enemy unit from taking its place and attacking.
     Use this to your advantage to halt the AI's advance while amassing a force to 
     win the battle. Be wary, however, of long-range unit movements.
    
    
     -Limit enemy deployment by sending crippled enemy units packing home-
    
     As an alternative to using your own allied units for prohibiting deployment
     from bases and other deployment structures, let enemy units that have 
     relatively low offense and defense capacities (such as infantry) with less
     than 3HP return to repair and supply at deployment structures. Of course, 
     enemy cities provide an alternative to bases for enemy land units, so try
     to limit the enemy's access to his own cities. Additionally, discern which
     types of units (air, land, or sea) can be repaired. If there's an enemy
     transport copter but no enemy airport to limit deployment from, go ahead
     and finish it off when it's beneficial or convenient!
    
    
     -Prohibit deployment of expensive enemy land units by cutting down
      enemy infantry-
    
     The AI strives to have a minimum of 5 infantry-class units. Therefore,
     if the total of enemy infantry and mech units combined is less than 5,
     enemy bases will be used to deploy infantry-class units. Exploit this by
     eliminating enemy infantry with spare firepower to greatly decrease
     the strength of the opposing army and the difficulty of the mission.
     If possible, attack while the enemy army is still developing for
     greater potential. (This is the underlying basis for the so-called "mech
     flood" that players often experience when attempting to rout the AI in
     deployment maps.)
    
    
     -Perfect S-Rank Scoring-
    
     The following, unfortunately, may become somewhat technical due to the
     calculations for the power, technique, and speed aspects. The speed
     aspect is detailed last as calculations for it are the most complex and
     the required information is usually unknown to the player.
      
     Power:
    
        Minimum ratio - 10% or 1:10 (*:**)
        *  Maximum number of enemy units destroyed in a single day
        ** Net total of enemy units deployed on day of completion
    
     (Important note: The "Net total..." (**) is solely denoted by the figure
     representing enemy "Units" displayed by the "Status" chart, under the
     "Intel" menu. Destruction of enemy units does not deduct from the net total.)
    
     If the perfect power ratio of 1:10 is not met, then the floor of the
     ratio percentage multiplied by 10 is taken to represent the power score.
     A 1:15 ratio (approx. 6.67%) becomes a power score of 66 points.
    
     On maps with enemy deployment structures (bases, ports, airports, and
     factories), the power aspect potentially becomes more difficult to
     obtain, as the enemy can theoretically keep increasing the net total by
     deploying additional units. Thus, speed can become a determining factor
     for power difficulty in deployment maps.
    
     Additionally, perfect power can be achieved on any day - not neccessarily
     the day of completion. However, to maintain perfect power throughout the
     final day, the enemy net total must not exceed 10 times the maximum amount
     of enemy units destroyed in a single day. If a maximum of 3 enemy units
     destroyed in one day was performed, the net total of enemy units deployed
     must not exceed 30 units upon the day of completion.
    
     Although the enemy is limited to 50 units on the map at a specific time, the
     AI is capable of deploying more than 50 units during the course of the
     mission. Therefore, if the figure representing enemy "Units" reaches 94
     (notwithstanding any destroyed units listed under enemy "Lost") by the day of
     completion, a maximum of 10 enemy units must have been destroyed in a single
     day sometime during the course of the mission in order to acheive perfect
     power. Consequently, the mere action of routing the AI does not necessarily
     guarantee perfect power - dependence lies on how the enemy was routed.
    
     Concerning War Room, in missions that have multiple enemies, the net total
     is the combined sum of the net totals for each individual enemy. In addition,
     enemy units must be physically destroyed by allied units in order to affect
     scoring - enemy units destroyed by the capturing of an enemy HQ do not count
     towards power.
    
     In closing, only enemy units affect the power aspect - Black Hole structures
     (Black Cannons, minicannons, lasers, etc.) have no bearing on power
     whatsoever.
    
     Technique:
    
        Maximum ratio - 20% or 2:10 (*:**) [Campaign/Hard Campaign]
                      - 10% or 1:10 (*:**) [War Room]
        *  Total number of allied units destroyed
        ** Net total of allied units deployed on day of completion
    
     If the perfect technique ratio is surpassed, then the floor percentage
     deducted from 120 (for Campaign modes) or 110 (for War Room) is taken
     to represent the technique score. A 2:7 ratio (approx. 28.5%) becomes
     a technique score of 92 points for Campaign and 82 points for War Room.
     The "Status" chart contains both totals for allied units for quick
     reference ("Lost":"Units").
    
     Problems with technique can be countered by deploying additional units
     using non-essential deployment structures and extras funds during the
     course of the mission or on the day of completion in order to raise the
     net total.
    
     A joined unit, if destroyed, will count as only a single addition to
     "Lost" while, towards the net total, it will still count as however
     many units were used to comprise the joined unit. This makes it possible
     to rout or be routed with the "Lost" total less than the "Units" total
     for the same army.
    
     As a final note on power and technique, the allied army that is given
     the first move on any specific day will be the army that determines
     these two aspects. However, concerning missions located in Black Hole
     territory, the army that completes the mission objective is deemed the
     scoring army.
    
     Speed:
    
        Maximum Limit - Mission dependent
    
     If the perfect speed limit is exceeded for a specific mission, deductions
     from the speed score are dependent on the speed limit for that mission and
     the total number of days over the limit. The 'base deduction value' for any
     mission will always be 100 divided by 3 times the speed limit. To calculate
     a speed score of less than 100 for a mission, multiply the total number of
     days exceeding the limit by the 'base deduction value' for that mission and
     then take the floor of that product and deduct it from 100. Completing the
     mission on or later than 4 times its speed limit will result in a speed
     score of 0.
    
     If the mission "Cleanup" (with a limit of 8 days and a 'base deduction
     value' of approx. 4.167) is completed on Day 15, the attempt will result
     in a speed score of 71. If completed on Day 32 or later, the attempt will
     yield 0 points for the speed score.
    
     The speed calculations are next to useless as the 'base deduction value'
     cannot be determined without information of the maximum limit or multiple
     trials for a specific mission. Therefore, there is ideally no other way
     to improve speed scores than to improve in skill and strategy.
     
     Finally, Advance Wars 2 has done away with any mission rank below a C-Rank.
     The following details the new rank stratifications.
    
     Mission Rank Strata:
    
         S-Rank - {280-300} points
         A-Rank - {250-279} points
         B-Rank - {200-249} points
         C-Rank - {001-199} point(s)

     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 11 Days
    
     Strategy: Deploy sole infantry to capture neutral propteries while heading
        east towards enemy land forces; deploy battleship to head towards pipe
        seam, destroying northeasternmost minicannon of island quartet while en
        route before positioning to destroy pipe seam; deploy adequate force of
        tanks and anti-airs to destroy invading infantry and copters; (Sonja must
        be used as she is able to most cost efficiently destroy Black Hole
        structures (with battleships) using initial resources given; any CO may be
        used for supplemental allied army as Sonja needs little if any aid;
        however, Sami is recommended as she is able to provided deviatory aid
        while attracting as little unwanted attention as possible due to increased
        lander movement should Sonja's battleship somehow come under danger of
        being attacked by deployed enemy rockets on Day 10; however, often times,
        Yellow Comet needs no assistance, so supplemental army may simply
        accumulate funds and watch on sidelines; complete this mission before
        completing "Factory Blues" on Blue Moon continent to receive additional
        dialogue about aiding in freedom of Blue Moon and obtain ability to use
        any Yellow Comet CO (in addition to Orange Star COs) to lead supplemental
        army in "Factory Blues")

           infantry this day, capture neutral port as soon as possible, deploy
           lander when possible and move east towards pipe seam with deployed
           infantry inside placing next to Yellow Comet battleship and within
           potential enemy rocket range on Day 10; Sami is alotted day delay
           due to increased lander movement)

           former case for remainder; however, latter case will still follow
           closely - with only day delay in capturing of neutral base and deployment
           of anti-air from specified base, resulting in one less able unit to
           attack on Day 11; however, final deployed force will still be able to

     --Drake's Dilemma--
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 8 Days
    
     Strategy: Head two battleships down to take down Black Cannons using reefs
        as cover and hide remaining battleships in reefs of strategic locations
        for attacking; use subs for vision; make cruisers useful by relegating
        them as cannon fodder along with one sub for Hawke's rockets to completely
        fill up Drake's CO Power bar; use Typhoon and destroy enemy unit near
        Kanbei's territory with tank deployed from Drake's base and three others
        with battleships while making sure to make additions to Hawke's CO power
        bar minimal; use Kanbei's units as early lures in addition to deploying a
        small force to prevent Hawke from capturing either neutral base; attack
        Black Cannons at least once before allowing Hawke to use Black Storm

     --Navy Vs. Air--
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 10 Days
    
     Strategy: Advance lander loaded with anti-air and infantry accompanied by
        all available cruisers towards enemy HQ to destroy enemy air force and
        capture neutral airport nearest enemy HQ then enemy HQ itself; deploy at
        least two fighters to aid anti-air in protecting capturing infantry from
        enemy attack; destroy and attack as few enemy units as possible after
        eliminating original enemy air force to prevent use of Hawke's CO power;
        (enemy movement requirements after Day 5 are rather exacting, especially
        Days 6 and 7; saving at and loading from beginning of Day 4 will provide
        most possible options should enemy movement requirements not be met;
        however, luck may be tried to save at beginning of each satisfied day to
        save reloading time, despite more limited enemy movement possibility
        and chance of satisfying requirements; completion can still be obtained
        after Day 10 should allied infantry be attacked or Black Storm used if
        use of both fighters and anti-air in preventing attack is efficient enough)
    
     Day 1:
    
        -Load anti-air then western infantry into lander and move 1 space south,
           5 east, then 1 north
        -Move westernmost cruiser 6 spaces east
        -Place southernmost cruiser 2 spaces north then 5 east
        -Head final cruiser 4 spaces east then 3 north
        -Move remaining infantry all the way north
        -Deploy infantry from both bases
    
     Day 2:
    
        -Capture both western neutral bases with both southern infantry
        -Head final infantry as far north as possible
        -Move southernmost cruiser 6 spaces north then 1 east
        -Place reamining southernmost cruiser 5 spaces north then 2 east
        -Head lander 4 spaces north then 3 east
        -Move final cruiser 3 spaces north then 4 east
    
     Day 3:
    
        -Head easternmost cruiser 5 spaces east then 1 north
        -Move westernmost cruiser all the way east

           cruiser from north
        -Destroy easternmost accessible battle copter with remaining westernmost
           cruiser from north
        -Move lander 5 spaces east then 1 south and drop anti-air south and
           infantry west
        -Destory southernmost accessible battle copter with final cruiser from
           north
    
     Day 5:
    
        -(Note: It is recommended, but not necessary, that not one of the allied
           cruisers be attacked to limit excessive addition to Hawke's CO
           power bar)
        -Destroy/attack all remaining battle copters with apt cruisers from either
           north or east (any damaged allied cruiser should attack adjacent damaged
           enemy battle copter)
        -Capture southern neutral airport with easternmost infantry
        -Place anti-air as far east along bridge as possible
    
     Day 6:
    
        -(Note: Enemy APC must not have moved; additionally, walkthrough assumes
           that enemy artillery has moved 1 space east and 1 space north and 
           continues to move generally north subsequent days; however, if enemy
           artillery resides east of enemy HQ, completion is still somewhat
           feasible (more so if all cruisers are undamaged) while any other
           position, especially enemy HQ itself, is highly prohibitive)
        -Move anti-air 1 space east then 2 north
        -Finish capture of airport
        -If any enemy battle copter remains, destroy with farthest possible cruiser
        -Head all (remaining) cruisers as far east as possible, staying outside

           for 1 space south and 5 west
    
     Day 7:
    
        -(Note: Enemy recon must not move onto enemy HQ)
        -Load easternmost infantry into lander
        -Deploy fighter from airport
        -Destroy transport copter with any undamaged cruiser
        -Place remaining cruisers near bridge, outside range of enemy battle
           copter deployed from northern airport
        -Head anti-air onto enemy HQ, attacking any adjacent infantry if present
    
     Day 8:
    
        -Move lander 4 spaces east onto nearby shoal and drop south
        -If enemy battle copter advanced south towards allied cruisers, destroy
           with any available cruiser
        -Defend and blockade infantry from attack with fighter and anti-air
           movements (assuming enemy infantry was attacked previous day,
           placing allied fighter 1 space south then 7 east and attacking any
           adjacent enemy infantry with allied anti-air from enemy HQ will often
           suffice if enemy recon resides north of enemy HQ while, if enemy
           recon resides south of enemy HQ, moving allied fighter 6 spaces
           east then 3 south and attacking any enemy infantry adjacent allied
           infantry with allied anti-air will usually be sufficient; more
           generally, any enemy infantry directly adjacent allied infantry or
           enemy HQ should be attacked with allied anti-air, allied anti-air
           should remain on enemy HQ if possible - especially if enemy recon
           resides north of enemy HQ, while allied fighter should assist in
           blockading - restricting enemy recon access back across bridge if
           enemy recon resides south of enemy HQ)
        -Deploy fighter from airport
    
           
     Day 9:
    
        -Capture enemy HQ
        -Blockade capturing infantry from enemy attack with both fighters and
           anti-air (moving eastern allied fighter directly south of eastern
           enemy base, placing allied anti-air directly south of western enemy
           base and not attacking, and heading final fighter onto road between
           eastern allied fighter and anti-air will usually suffice)
        -Deploy any desired offensive unit from airport
    
     Day 10:
    
        -Destroy any desired units with available units
        -Finish capture of enemy HQ

        -(Note: Walkthrough assumes that enemy APC drops infantry onto neutral
           base, southern enemy infantry attacks APC, and final two infantry
           remain stationary; also artillery must move east)
        -Move northernmost western recon 1 space south then 6 east

     --Hot Pursuit-- (Grit)
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 10 Days
    
     Strategy: Use rockets to destroy minicannons necessary to clear path to Black
        Cannons; deploy artillery and rockets with primary CO to move towards
        territory of secondary CO to destroy entire western enemy naval force in
        single day; deploy medium tanks with both secondary and tertiary COs to
        draw Black Cannon fire away from approaching allied rockets and aid in
        destruction of necessary and miscellany minicannons; deploy artillery with
        secondary CO to draw western battleship fire away from primary CO's
        artillery force; (Grit must act as primary CO as increased indirect range
        allows for less movement within minicannon and Black Cannon range and
        increased chances of destroying entire western naval force on same day;
        Jess and Max are suggested for secondary and tertiary CO selections due to
        respective increased artillery and medium tank firepower; however, choice
        of secondary COs is rather unrestricted - with only constraint that if
        Kanbei is to lead, he must lead tertiary army; use of Sami or Sensei as
        secondary CO and Kanbei as tertiary necessitate slight modifications in
        movement and deployment directions (due to respective decreased land
        direct firepower and increased deployment costs), which have been appended
        throughout; while four artillery and sole rockets unit are used to ensure
        destruction of western enemy naval force, often only two artillery and
        single rockets unit can easily suffice in completing assigned task)
    
     Day 1:
    
        --(Grit)--

        -Deploy medium tank from western base
    
     Day 5:

        -(Note: It is recommended that western enemy battleship attacked artillery
           of secondary army previous day and continue to do so for remainder of
           mission as opposed to repositioning itself; remainder of walkthrough
           makes this assumption; however, at very least, no enemy western naval
           unit must be out of range of Grit's artillery positioned on allied port
           of secondary army on both Days 9 and 10; attainment of Grit's CO Power
           made add some leeway, but attainment is not necessarily guaranteed; it

        least one bomber and infantry each in order to aid in damaging units,
        drawing Black Cannon fire, and defending central allied army bomber with
        missle launches against threatening enemy units; (Colin must act as central
        primary CO as only he is able to deploy a bomber by Day 3, allowing for
        maneuverability around Deathray fire; although Max and Eagle are defined

     V. Hard Campaign
     ----------------
    
     The Hard Campaign of Advance Wars 2 is very different from the Advanced
     Campaign of the original Advance Wars. While many missions have additional,
     more powerful enemy units (as in Advanced Campaign of Advance Wars), the
     Hard Campaign of Advance Wars 2 often gives the player additional, more
     powerful units to combat those of the enemy - instead of downgrading
     allied units. Also different from Advanced Campaign, map layouts of
     Campaign missions are often subject to rearrangement and change in Hard
     Campaign. Complete missions have also been discarded and others inserted,
     specifically those on the Orange Star continent. Finally, the Power and
     Technique categories can no longer be taken for granted.

     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 3 Days
    
     Strategy: Advance towards sea fortress; avoid triggering use of Hawke's
        Super CO Power on Day 2 and for duration of mission by crippling and
        destroying only fighters and southernmost battle copters and forming
        barrier of planes to protect against remaining enemy battle copters;

           copters of main enemy air force as farthest accesible units, 4 spaces
           north of westernmost and easternmost allied fighters; however,
           minimum requirement that both enemy fighters and four southernmost

     --Drake's Dilemma--
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 8 Days
    
     Strategy: Head two battleships down to take down Black Cannons using reefs
        as cover and hide remaining battleships in reefs of strategic locations
        for attacking; use subs for vision; make cruisers useful by relegating
        them as cannon fodder for Hawke's rockets to fill up Drake's CO Power bar;
        attack a unit with a battleship to completely fill CO Power bar;
        use Typhoon and destroy two units near Kanbei's territory with a couple of
        Drake's land units and three others with battleships while making sure
        to make additions to Hawke's CO power bar minimal; use Kanbei's units
        as early lures in addition to deploying a small force to attack units
        near Hawke's captured base and prohibit deployment from base; attack
        Black Cannons at least once before allowing Hawke to use Black Storm

     ------------
    
     --Spann Island--
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 5 Days (6-day walkthrough)
    
     Strategy: Deploy recon and infantry on Day 1; move east and deploy APC on
        Day 2; move east, attack infantry, and deploy recon on Day 3; load and
        drop infantry so enemy HQ is within potential movement range on Day 4;
        start capture of HQ by Day 5 and prevent hostile units from attacking
        capturing infantry; finish capture by Day 6; (this strategy is potentially
        viable for any CO other than Kanbei, because of unit cost; however, Grit's
        recon units may not be able to do enough while those with above average
        recon units may deter required enemy attack for Day 5; additionally,
        Sami's capturing abilities allow enemy requirements to be less strict
        for Day 5; finally, with such universal capability, luck and saving
        before executing allied movement will be a necessary requirement; this
        specific walkthrough is recommended more to a degree for general
        completion; however, 5-day walkthrough follows afterward)
    
     Day 1:

           Sami or Colin, it is advised that allied recon take no damage or that
           only 5HP remain for enemy infantry)
        -Finish capture of enemy city
        -Place APC onto road 3 spaces north of infantry
        -Deploy recon from northern base
    
     Day 4:
    
        -(Note: Enemy APC must move south, just north of northern bridge)
        -Finish infantry with recon from east (infantry must be killed)
        -Load infantry into APC, head north of northern neutral city, and
           drop onto neutral city
        -Move recon northeast along road
    
     Day 5:
    
        -(Note: Northern enemy infantry must attack eastern recon from mountains
           coupled with enemy recon; additionally, for any CO other than Sami, only
           single enemy mech unit must be deployed from western enemy base instead
           of tank and infantry units)
        -Capture HQ with infantry
        -Place APC west of capturing infantry
        -Head damaged recon north of capturing infantry (do not attack with recon)

        -Deploy infantry from all bases
        -Kill injured infantry with remaining capable recon
        -Finish capture of HQ
    
    
     --Spann Island-- (Sami)

     Strategy: Deploy APC from easternmost base on Day 1 that will transport
        infantry deployed on Day 2 within range of enemy HQ on Day 3; deploy
        recons on Days 2 and 3 to injured and destroy infantry; (Sami is only
        CO who can complete in 5 days due to necessary capture and transport
        bonuses; necessary requirement for Day 5 is on average a rare occurence)

     Strategy: Deploy infantry and APC on Day 1 and advance through forested area
        towards enemy HQ with support of three recon units deploy on Day 2;
        continually deploy infantry from Day 3 on to cushion casualties; (only
        Sturm can perform this quickly due to lack of movement penalties)

     Day 5:
    
        -(Note: Walkthrough assumes that enemy artillery is deployed from eastern
           base - if deployed from western base, modify recon (and, if necessary,
           APC) movement to continually prohibit tank from attacking infantry;
           nonetheless, one enemy unit must be destroyed before mission completion)
        -Head APC north of enemy HQ, dropping onto enemy HQ
        -Place southern recon on southern enemy base
        -Attack artillery with both northern recons from north and east

        on Day 5; meanwhile, deploy three mech and tranport copter pairs on
        Days 3 and 4 to bait enemy anti-air and tank into allied attack range
        and destroy with mechs and battle copter deployed on Day 5; deploy six
        additional units to compensate for loss of decoys; (Sami is only CO
        who can complete in 7 days with ease due to capture abilities and

     Strategy: Deploy lander, mech, and infantry on Day 2 to serve as HQ
        infiltration force, moving towards enemy HQ every subsequent day; deploy
        second lander and infantry to lure enemy battle copter away from
        infiltration group, if necessary; destroy one additional unit besides
        recon near enemy HQ on Day 8; (as recon guards enemy HQ starting Day 7,
        only Sami and Andy, with 'Hyper Repair,' can perform in 8 days; however,
        more work is necessary to acquire 'Hyper Repair' than to rely on Sami's
        innate capturing abilites)

        -Move lander all the way east
        -(Note: Walkthrough assumes enemy battle copter moves directly west,
           either 3 or 6 spaces - if enemy battle copter moves onto enemy HQ,
           deploy medium tank from either southern base this day instead, moving
           unit as far south as possible Days 5 and 6; additionally, deploy tank
           from either southern base on Day 5, moving unit all the way south on
           Day 6; finally, lie in wait until Day 8 to destroy one enemy land unit
           along with recon at enemy HQ)

           north and 1 space west of infantry and move tank 2 spaces south, west of
           neutral base; additionally, if enemy medium tank was not able to attack
           lander (deployment from easternmost of northern enemy base pair), enemy

        infantry and APC pairs through Day 4 (deploying mechanized infantry
        on Day 2); head towards enemy territory throughout mission; destroy
        rockets with mech and infantry with infantry pair; (Sami is best
        suited for this infantry assault as her capture abilities allow her
        leeway with enemy attacks; however, if no enemy unit is situated so
        that enemy HQ is within attack range by the beginning of Day 7,
        Sensei is a comparable CO; Sami and Sensei are the only two who can
        perform in 8 days due to their increase in infantry firepower and
        transport movement)
    
     Day 1:

     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 7 Days (8-day walkthrough)
    
     Strategy: Deploy two pairs of infantry and transport copter pairs - 
        one infantry to decoy enemy medium tank into position so that
        transport copter duo can easily barricade enemy medium tank from
        capturing infantry and enemy HQ; deploy fighter to neutralize
        threat from enemy battle copter; deploy two units, either pair of
        tanks, or battle copter and tank, to destroy intruding enemy units
        in allied area along with destruction of battle copter(s) to secure
        power aspect; deploy three units to aid in loss of decoy; (this
        specific walkthrough is recommended for general completion; however,
        7-day walkthrough follows afterward)

        -Load infantry into transport copter and move all the way east
    
     Day 4:
    
        -(Note: It is recommended to some extent that enemy recon be loaded
           into enemy lander and moved south by this day, as this will assure
           completion of power aspect)
        -Head eastern transport copter as far north as possible
        -Move remaining transport copter all the way east
        -Deploy fighter from airport
    
     Day 5:
    
        -(Note: If enemy recon was not loaded into lander previous day, then
           either enemy tank or anti-air (or both) must be loader into lander
           this day; any remaining unit(s) (enemy tank or anti-air - or both
           if recon was loaded into lander) must move south along road and
           not reside on any enemy bases)
        -Deploy tank from eastern base

           enemy lander; otherwise, deploy battle copter from airport
    
     Day 7:
    
        -(Note: If lander enemy contains either enemy tank or anti-air, enemy
           lander must move towards allied shore and not drop off unit(s) at
           enemy shore; additionally, potential enemy threats must continue to move
           south and not north towards enemy HQ and capturing infantry)
        -Head western tank (or battle copter) as far east as possible
        -Destroy/attack battle copter with fighter
        -Capture enemy HQ

     Strategy: Raid enemy HQ with infantry and transport copter pair (Sensei
        must deploy an additional infantry and transport copter pair to act
        as decoy); deploy two battle copters as soon as possible after
        completing raiding preparations to secure power score; (Sensei is 
        able to complete this mission due to special reaction of AI towards
        upgraded infantry with only one guarding unit, while Sami must strain
        her capturing capabilities to maximum potential in order speed up
        power aspect preparations due to decreased direct firepower; the
        scenarios required by this walkthrough are rather improbable; thus, it
        is not recommended that this be used for general use; however, if it
        is to be used, Sensei is recommend over Sami for easier completion)

           units were loaded into enemy lander and moved south; otherwise, either
           enemy tank or anti-air must have been deployed from either eastern or
           southern base and unit deployed from eastern or southern base must move
           as far south along road as possible while remaining deployed unit must
           be loaded into lander and moved south; additionally, enemy rockets must
           have been deployed from eastern base)

     Strategy: Deploy tank and APC loaded with infantry to infiltrate enemy HQ from
        south; continously deploy tanks near edge of allied territory to eliminate
        two enemy units for power rating; (while the brute force and universal
        movement of Sturm play effect little upon the outcome of the mission, his
        upgraded defense makes him the best candidate; nevertheless, Lash is well
        a suited second; when increased firepower is needed, her abilities allow
        her units to surpass any other CO in terms of attack, abling her to
        neutralize difficult situations that would otherwise put any other CO in
        a quandry; other COs who have bonuses favoring direct land units are
        also favored)
    
     Day 1:
    
        -Deploy infantry from both bases
    
     Day 2:

           line of enemy properties denoted by southernmost enemy base)
        -Finish capture of neutral city
        -Load remaining infantry into APC and supply tank from bridge
           north of tank
        -Attack easternmost infatry with tank

           south of enemy HQ)
        -Attack southernmost infantry with western tank from west
        -Deploy tank from easternmost base
        -(Note: Walkthrough assumes that attack range of enemy artillery does not
           threaten easternmost enemy base; otherwise, attack artillery with tank
           from enemy base 1 space south and 1 west of enemy HQ instead of 
           executing directed movement order for tank directly following)
        -Head tank 3 spaces north, 1 east, then 2 north onto easternmost enemy base

     --The Trident-- (Grit)
    
     Earliest Perfect S-Rank Time: 8 Days
    
     Strategy: Deploy lone infantry to capture single neutral property as soon
        as possible to secure necessary funding; deploy two artillery units - one
        on Day 2, moving it up on Day 3 to destroy pipe seam by Day 5, and a second
        on Day 5 to aid in fulfilling power requirement; deploy APC to tranport
        sole infantry to enemy HQ and lure two enemy infantry into attack range of
        artillery units; (Grit can complete the mission in 7 days - given highly 
        conducive enemy deployments and actions; however, only an imperfect S-Rank
        is possible as movement to finish capture enemy HQ by Day 7 does not decoy
        enough enemy units into Grit's range of attack)
    
     Day 1:
    
        -Deploy infantry from northern base
    
     Day 2:
    
        -Capture western airport
        -Deploy artillery from northern base
    
     Day 3:
    
        -Move artillery as far north as possible
        -Deploy APC from northern base
        -Finish capture of airport
    
     Day 4:
    
        -Load infantry into APC and supply artillery from north
        -Attack pipe seam with artillery
        -Deploy recon from northern base
    
     Day 5:
    
        -Attack pipe seam with recon
        -Deploy artillery from northern base
        -Destroy pipe seam with northern artillery
        -Move APC 4 spaces north and drop north onto enemy base
    
     Day 6:
    
        -(Note: Enemy arillery must be deployed from westernmost base and enemy
           tank from easternmost base; additionally, enemy transport copter must
           have moved 1 space south of enemy airport and two enemy infantry must
           have attacked allied APC)
        -Move infantry 2 spaces north, keeping outside range of enemy artillery
        -Place recon 4 spaces north, just south of infantry
        -Use APC to supply recon from south
        -Head northern artillery 2 spaces north just within attack range
           of enemy infantry
        -Move remaining artillery as far north as possible
    
     Day 7:
    
        -(Note: Enemy battle copter must not have been deployed from enemy
           airport; additionally, allied northern artillery and APC must have been
           attacked by the two southern enemy infantry)
        -Destroy southernmost enemy infantry with southern artillery
        -Move APC onto remaining central enemy base
        -Destroy remaining southernmost infantry with artillery and recon,
           if necessary
        -Capture enemy HQ
    
     Day 8:
    
        -Finish capture of enemy HQ
    
    
     VII. Miscellaneous
     ------------------
     
     -Have fun with Japanese in 'Design Room - Map'-
    
     When selecting 'Design Room - Map' (pressing the A button), hold down the
     L and R buttons. Instead of a random map output, the map will contain three
     Japanese kanji characters - outlined by mountain and forest terrain. To see
     the characters more clearly save the map in any open file slot and view the
     compact preview at the "Load" screen. For those desiring a translation,
     "Nintendo" is the message being displayed. This can also be done in the
     original Advance Wars by executing the same process while selecting its
     map-designing counterpart, 'Design Maps.'
    
     -Receive commendation from Nell in 'Design Room - Map'-
    
     After the initialization of a random map, execute any illegal action
     between 50 to 60 times (approx. 55 times, if not exactly) by rapidly tapping
     the A button. Illegal actions are denoted when the cursor contains an
     'X' symbol and include placing brigdes over land, naval units on land, land
     units in the sea, vehicles on mountains or rivers, or pipe seams without
     properly adjoining pipes. Once the required action is fulfilled, Nell will
     comment on the feat. As with the previous 'Design Room - Map' activity, this
     can also be done in the 'Design Maps' of the original Advance Wars.

     ***Additional notes concerning the Japanese names***
     --The Santa Claus personification of Olaf is largely what drives his Japanese
         analog name of Whip.
     --Specifically, Itto Ryodan is a sword technique form of the Toyama Ryu iaido
         (a martial arts style), literally meaning "cut in two with one stroke."
         Colloquially, the meaning of the phrase is equivalent "to cut the (Gordian)
         knot" - i.e. to take decisive or drastic measure
     --A bonze is a Buddhist priest
     --There is a noticeably stronger animal theme for the Japanese Black Hole 
         characters - i.e. Cat & Kong
     --The name of Catherine's (Nell's) super CO power, Red Star Dream, is a
         reference to her army affiliation, as the Orange Star army is named
         the Red Star army in "Game Boy Wars Advance 1+2"
     --Wasshoi Festa is likely a reference the any number of performing arts
         festivals, possibly Wasshoi! and its other numerous names
         (www.wasshoi.org); otherwise, it may be interpreted literally as
         an '"I've Come" festival'; nevertheless, both of Hachi's Japanese
         CO power names evoke a theme of gathering and joyous spirit
