01. Introduction to Advance Wars 2
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Advance Wars series that Americans have known to love has a far longer 
history in Japan, where it originated. 

FAMICOM WARS (1988) by Intelligent Systems - The first game in the Wars series 
came on the Japanese version of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), the 
Famicom system. It utilized a similar play style to Advance Wars but featured 
just two armies, Red Star and Blue Moon, fewer maps, and obviously not as good 
graphics. It was a Japan-only release. 

GAME BOY WARS (1991) by Intelligent Systems - Game Boy Wars released as the 
second Wars game, and unlike Famicom Wars, it uses an unusual diagonal grid 
system rather than a straight up grid. It still has two armies and unlike 
Famicom Wars, plays in black and white since Game Boy Color would not be 
released for a good several years. It was a Japan-only release. 

GAME BOY WARS TURBO (1997) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft took over the reigns of 
the Game Boy Wars series, and added a few more maps to the original version. 
Like the first two games, it was a Japan-only release. 

GAME BOY WARS 2 (1998) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft creates the Game Boy Wars 
series in color for the first time, with the release of Game Boy Color. It was 
a Japan-only release. 

SUPER FAMICOM WARS (1998) by Intelligent Systems - The most well-known of the 
pre-Advance Wars games, it is the closest to the Advance Wars series and 
features four armies, though still no campaign mode, and was released on May 
1st, 1998. There are a lot of units, including many that don't have a 
counterpart until the release of Advance Wars: Dual Strike (like four types of 
tanks), and many of its maps are shown on the Advance Wars game pack. It was a 
Japan-only release. 

64 WARS by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft originally wanted to make a N64 version of 
its Game Boy Wars series and make it compatible with Game Boy Wars 2 but the 
plan fell through and the game was cancelled. 

GAME BOY WARS 3 (2001) by Hudson Soft - Hudson Soft improves the graphics of 
the Game Boy Wars series even further on the Game Boy Color. It was a 
Japan-only release. 

ADVANCE WARS (2001) by Intelligent Systems - Advance Wars for the Game Boy 
Advance system went into stock in stores on September 9th, 2001 in the United 
States and was released to the public on September 11th, 2001, and was nearly 
pulled off the shelves because of the terrorist attack on America the same day. 
However, it did make it to the USA, and was the first of the series from Japan 
to reach America. It released in Europe four months later, on January 11th, 
2002, and was pulled off the shelves in Japan. It is the first to include a 
campaign mode and follows the Orange Star Army as they fight across Wars World 
to defend their homeland. Japan would not get the game until Game Boy Wars 
Advance 1+2 was released in 2004. 

ADVANCE WARS 2: BLACK HOLE RISING (2003) by Intelligent Systems - The Advance 
Wars sequel continues on Advance Wars' storyline, as Black Hole returns to take 
revenge on the Allied Nations and conquer their territories. It was released on 
June 23rd, 2003 in the US and followed in Europe on October 3rd of the same 
year. It was never released in Japan because they did not get Advance Wars 
prior to this. 

GAME BOY WARS ADVANCE 1+2 (2004) by Intelligent Systems - Japan decided to pull 
off Advance Wars off their shelves on September 12th, 2001 after the terrorist 
attacks on the United States, and did not get Advance Wars or its sequel. Three 
years later, on November 25th, 2004, Intelligent Systems released a combination 
game of both Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2, with both campaign modes intact. 
Users may then switch between AW and AW2 modes. It was a Japan-only release. 

ADVANCE WARS: DUAL STRIKE (2005) by Intelligent Systems - Known as Famicom Wars 
DS in Japan, AWDS features yet another Black Hole invasion, with the Allied 
Nations trying to fight the invaders. It was released on June 23rd, 2005 in 
Japan, and will be released on August 22nd in the US, and September 30th in 
Europe. It will become the first game in the entire series to be released 
universally. 


The Advance Wars series is like chess played to a global scale. With a 
compelling story, various commanding officers and terrific music add to the 
reason why you'd want this game.  As the advisor of a fighting force,  you 
maneuver allied units into position, capture cities and bases, and attack the 
enemy units while avoiding threats like the Black Cannon and carrying  your 
plan to eliminate the enemies. Every unit under your control have weaknesses  
and strengths with movement, hit points, attack restrictions, ammunition and 
fuel that you must monitor often in order to defeat your enemy. You can repair 
and supply battle units, deploy new units, and use the special powers  of your 
commanding officer to gain the upper hand on the enemy. Every mission is an 
epic struggle that requires a firm grasp of the battle tactics to win.

when it's not on a unit. 

B: Use B to cancel a selection. Holding B will also show you an indirect unit's 
attack range.

information. 

Start: Press Start after a mission briefing to enter a Campaign Mission. This 
shows a mini-map in battle, and also skips dialogue in Campaign Mode.

05. Advance Wars 2 Modes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------
Mode Select Menu
----------------

VS. Mode: The versus mode allows you to battle against your friends and/or the 
computer. You will take turns using the same DS, so you'll need to pass it 
around. 

Link Mode: The linking mode allows you to battle against your friends where you 
use a Link Cable to link up your 2-4 Game Boy Advances, and allows for quicker 
battles. If the other players do not have AWDS, then they can play a few 
limited maps, but if they have the full version game, anything can be played. 

Campaign Mode: You can't go without this mode. Campaign mode plays out the 
storyline of Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, and you can save up to three 
slots. If you beat Normal Campaign mode, you will be able to access Hard 
Campaign mode. After each mission, you will get coins in which you can buy maps 
from Battle Maps. 

War Room Mode: Want a challenge? War Room's got it, and AW2 has brought brand 
new maps to the mix! From easy 1v1 to hard 1v3 maps, you will be tested, given 
a score, and given coins for your efforts. 

Design Room: Contains Design Maps and Design CO modes.

  - Design Maps Mode: Design Maps mode lets you create your own map, and as 
usual, there's a limit of 60 properties. The maximum size the map can be is 
20x30, like the old games. Have fun! You have three save slots that you can 
also name.

  - End : Use End to exit Design Maps mode.

  - Design CO Mode: Like in Advance Wars 2, you can edit the colors of your 
favorite (or least favorite) COs.  

Battle Maps Mode: You might be asking...what do you do with those coins you get 
in Campaign and War Room modes? Enter Battle Maps mode to buy maps, COs, and 
edits with your coins! Hachi will also give you some tips and talk to you. 

Sound Room Mode: Unlocked near the end, this gives you full access to all the 
music AWDS has to offer.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
07. The Five Countries
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The five Advance Wars countries are all unique in their own ways, and are 
probably based off of real-world nations from World War II. Here is information 
about all these five powers. 

-----------
Orange Star
-----------

Color: Red

Training Missions: Controlled
Campaign Mode: Controlled
War Room Mode: Controlled (Enemy if player controls a Blue Moon CO)
Versus Mode: 1st Army

Resemblance To: United States of America
Headquarters: American Skyscraper

Orange Star CO Leader: Nell
Available Commanding Officers: Andy, Hachi, Max, Nell, Sami

Brief Bio: Early in history, the Orange Star forces clashed with Blue Moon 
rebel forces which seized the eastern end of the Orange Star, with forces 
commanded by some poor commanders. The arrival of Commander Olaf from the 
Orange Star to the Blue Moon, as well as Grit's support, surprised the Orange 
Star. Blue Moon forces were now commanded by a former Orange Star commander, 
Commander Olaf from Macro Land. Eventually, Olaf's forces entered Orange Star 
and Orange Star, led by Commander Nell, drove them out. Weeks later, Olaf 
invaded again, this time with a full-fledged force, except for the defenders on 
the Green Earth border. Blue Moon forces swept to the capital, but the entrance 
of you, the advisor, in Advance Wars 1, along with Commander Andy, forced Olaf 
and Grit's forces reeling back into Blue Moon. On Olaf's tail, Orange Star 
forces swept into Yellow Comet and Green Earth, eventually figuring out that 
Black Hole was their real enemy. With CO Sturm defeated in Cosmo Land, the area 
was freed once more, but as Advance Wars 2 rises, CO Sturm is back. You, 
controlling the Orange Star forces in Advance Wars 2' campaign mode, must send 
Flak packing from Orange Star, and aid your allies against the Black Hole 
threat. 

Orange Star is also known as Red Star in the Japanese version; Red Star was 
renamed Orange Star when the Advance Wars series came to Nintendo to avoid 
American negativity from associating red with Communism. 

---------
Blue Moon
---------

Color: Blue

Training Missions: Nonexistent
Campaign Mode: Controlled
War Room: Main Enemy (Controlled if player controls a Blue Moon CO)
Versus Mode: 2nd Army

Resemblance: Russia
Headquarters: Russian palce

Blue Moon CO Leader: Olaf
Available Commanding Officers: Colin, Grit, Olaf

Brief Bio: Blue Moon separatist forces managed to achieve a great victory over 
the Orange Star forces after Olaf and Grit joined their ranks. Olaf's forces 
invaded Orange Star the first time with minor forces but failed to penetrate 
Nell. They tried again with their entire forces, but Andy stopped them, along 
with the Advance Wars 1's advisor. Olaf's forces were forced to flee through 
Yellow Comet and Green Earth after Orange Star was on its tail, betrayed by 
Sturm's promised support for Blue Moon. After learning this betrayal, Olaf 
joins the Allied forces invading Sturm's homeland, defeating him in the Cosmo 
Land War. In Advance Wars 2, CO Sturm is back. He has sent Commander Lash to 
seize Blue Moon from Olaf. You, controlling the Blue Moon forces, must liberate 
your country and launch an invasion of Black Hole's main island. 

-----------
Green Earth
-----------

Color: Green

Training Missions: Nonexistent
Campaign Mode: Controlled
War Room: 2nd Enemy (Controlled if player controls a Green Earth CO)
Versus Mode: 3rd Army

Resemblance: Germany
Headquarters: German Castle

Green Earth CO Leader: Eagle
Available Commanding Officers: Drake, Eagle, Jess

Brief Bio: Green Earth forces existed farther back than the Blue Moon forces, 
but their major wars did not begin until Black Hole forces, commanded by a 
Clone Andy, attacked Green Earth. Believing it was Commander Andy of Orange 
Star, Eagle launched blitzkrieg campaigns on Orange Star on the southern island 
of Orange Star and southeast Blue Moon, losing both times. With the Orange Star 
forces arriving from the east, Drake and Eagle fails to take out the advancing 
Orange Star forces until new intel from Commander Sonja of Yellow Comet gives 
them an alliance against Sturm. Sturm is defeated in the Cosmo Land War. In 
Advance Wars 2, Sturm is back, dealing the greatest damage on Green Earth. With 
its allies victorious on all fronts, Eagle, Drake, and Jess are still left 
dealing with a surprising commander, Commander Hawke. Liberate your country and 
attack the lair of Sturm. 

------------
Yellow Comet
------------

Color: Yellow

Training Missions: Nonexistent
Campaign Mode: Controlled
War Room Mode: 3rd Enemy (Controlled if player controls a Yellow Comet CO)
Versus Mode: 4th Army

Resemblance: Japan
Headquarters: Japanese Palace

Yellow Comet CO Leader: Kanbei
Available Commanding Officers: Kanbei, Sensei, Sonja

Brief Bio: Yellow Comet forces were inactive in wars until Black Hole forces 
struck Green Earth. With forces on alert, Orange Star forces invaded Yellow 
Comet to chase Olaf, leaving a devastated Yellow Comet army in its midst. 
Kanbei and Sonja were defeated, and the Orange Star forces moved into Green 
Earth, where Sonja figured out Sturm was the real enemy. The Allied forces, 
including Yellow Comet forces, defeated Sturm. In Advance Wars 2, Commander 
Adder of Black Hole has invaded Yellow Comet. Repel their advances and attack 
the citadel of Black Hole! 

----------
Black Hole
----------

Color: Black

Training Missions: Main Enemy
Campaign Mode: Main Enemy
War Room Mode: Controlled if player controls a Black Hole CO
Versus Mode: Nonexistent

Resemblance: Alien Country
Headquarters: Something that shoots up to the heavens

Black Hole CO Leader: Sturm
Available Commanding Officers: Adder, Flak, Lash, Hawke, Sturm

Brief Bio: As the most technologically advanced and most powerful army, Black 
Hole is quite a force to deal with. Forging an alliance with Blue Moon to 
create conflict in Cosmo Land, Sturm led Blue Moon forces to attack Orange Star 
while he attacked Green Earth, failing. Sturm's strategy was dealt a great 
defeat when Yellow Comet intelligence figured out the real cause of the war, 
and Sturm was defeated quickly by the Allies. In Advance Wars 2, Sturm has 
returned, with four new commanders, underlings. With the entry of Flak into 
Orange Star, Adder into Yellow Comet, Lash into Blue Moon, and Hawke into Green 
Earth, they drew big defeats against the Allies and lost much of its territory 
until Sturm was betrayed by Hawke. The remainder of Black Hole is rebuilding 
again, but there's a suspicion that they might be back for even more. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
08. Commanding Officers
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

There are even more playable Commanding Officers (COs) in Advance Wars 2 than 
in the first game, and most have to be unlocked through playing through Normal 
Campaign mode once. 1 strength means average, or compared to Andy, who is 
average. 

-----------
ORANGE STAR
-----------

Andy (Orange Star CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Default

Hit: Mechanics
Miss: Waking up early

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 100%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 100%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 100%

CO Power: Hyper Repair (3 bars) - Repairs all of his units by 2 health points 
and gives them all a slight battle bonus (10%) for the rest of the round on 
defense. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 110%

Super CO Power: Hyper Upgrade (6 bars) - Restores five HP and gives his units 
even greater firepower than with Hyper Repair. Also gives Andy's units +1 
movement.

Infantry Offense: 120%, +1 movement
Infantry Defense: 120%

Direct Offense: 120%, +1 movement
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 120%, +1 movement
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strengths/Weaknesses: None, unless you count his awesome healing abilities when 
a lot of units are on the field. 

Andy Strategy: Andy, when with large armies, is the best CO in the game. Say if 
he has all medium tanks versus Max's...he'll still win. Why? His power charges 
up well enough to actually bet Max. Andy is also a great overall CO and good in 
maps where it requires different strategies all the time. Andy can also survive 
long battles due to his CO power, so don't be afraid to get in a big fight, you 
will win if you have even less units. Remember to pay close, close attention to 
what the enemy produces. Andy doesn't have any strengths, so he must react well 
to what the enemy is using and find an appropriate counter. For instance, Andy 
must always pack rockets and any other long range unit against Max, always use 
recons and tanks against Grit, and anti-aircraft and fighters against Eagle. 
Only by countering his enemy's strength or use the enemy's weakness to your 
advantage will he win easy victories. 



Max (Orange Star CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Default

Hit: Weight Training
Miss: Studying

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 100%

Direct Offense: 120%
Direct Defense: 100%

Indirect Offense: 90%, -1 attack range
Indirect Defense: 100%

CO Power: Max Force (3 bars) - All direct types (from submarines to tanks to 
battle  copters) get +40% offense. All units including direct units also get 
+10% defense and +1 movement. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 140%. +1 movement
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 90%, -1 attack range
Indirect Defense: 110%

Super CO Power: Max Blast (6 bars) - +2 movement and increases firepower for 
direct units. +2 movement for all units. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 160%, +2 movement
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 90%, -1 attack range
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strength/Weakness: Direct units deal +20% damage, but indirect units do -10% 
damage and -1 range. 

Max Strategy: Max is good for aggressive players that love to use direct 
forces, and a strong CO in almost every situation. Use him on any flat maps 
that don't have many choke points or any that direct forces are required for a 
win. Use his Max Force CO power when you've popped a hole in the enemy line and 
you have the chance to storm some tanks into the enemy base are. Don't worry 
about losing that round, if you can get several tanks to the enemy base, you 
will pull their force in half (those stranded in the field and those contesting 
with the invading tanks), and then your next wave of troops will achieve 
victory. Max should always destroy all enemies instead of trying to capture the 
enemy HQ, since it's just so easy to do when direct forces are an advantage. 



Sami (Orange Star CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Default

Infantry Offense: 130%, 150% capture rate
Infantry Defense: 100%

Direct Offense: 90%
Direct Defense: 100%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 100%

Note: Sami's transports also get +1 movement.

CO Power: Double Time (3 bars) - All of her Infantry/Mech/Transport units get 
+1 movement and her infantry group movement cost is 1 in every terrain and 
every weather condition, including snow. 

Infantry Offense: 150%, +1 movement, 150% capture rate
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 90%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 110%

Super CO Power: Victory March (8 bars)- Units can capture any property in one 
turn regardless of HP. Her infantry also get +2 movement. 

Infantry Offense: 180%, +2 movement, can capture any property instantly 
regardless of health 
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 90%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strength/Weakness: + Infantry better + Infantry capture buildings 50% faster + 
Transports move faster, but Direct Fire worse for non-Infantry/Mechs.  

Sami Strategy: Sami is great for hilly/foresty/rivery terrain, obviously. Sami 
will have problems against many of the enemy COs, though. Grit, Max, and Kanbei 
all have extreme advantages on her. The only way you can win against them 
(unless you're unstoppable and your enemy sucks) is capturing the enemy HQ, and 
to do so, it is hard unless you crank in as many mechs as possible every turn, 
because they won't have enough time to destroy all of them. Massed mechs are 
still very effective, so don't count them out, even against Grit, Max, and 
Kanbei. 



Nell (Orange Star CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Beat Normal Campaign with an A-rank or above.

Hit: Willful students
Miss: Downtime

Infantry Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-2 damage
Infantry Defense: 100%

Direct Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-2 damage
Direct Defense: 100%

Indirect Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-2 damage
Indirect Defense: 100%

CO Power: Lucky Star (3 bars) - This allows her units to be extremely lucky in 
her units' attack power, occasionally dealing 50% or even 100% extra damage! 
Also, they get a plain attack bonus added to their dmg%. It also damages a few 
enemy units. 

Infantry Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-7 damage
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-7 damage
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-7 damage
Indirect Defense: 110%

Super CO Power: Lady Luck (6 bars) - Nell's EVEN luckier. Damages more enemy 
units than Lucky Star. 

Infantry Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-9 damage
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-9 damage
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%, chance of dealing +1-9 damage
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strength/Weakness: - Her units are slightly more lucky than every other CO. 

Nell Strategy: That can determine a winning battle or a losing battle! You can 
actually cheat with Nell: just save and then come back until you get the 
maximum luck, so then you can win extremely fast with Nell. Time-consuming but 
very effective. I haven't personally tried it but it could be a new way to get 
better ranks with her. 



Hachi (Orange Star CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Beat Hard Campaign.

Hit: Tea
Miss: Medicine

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 100%

Power Meter: xxxXX
Barter: All units 100/110, all units cost 50%
Merchant Union: All units 100/110, all units cost 50%, ground units can be 
deployed from 
cities you control

CO Power: Barter (3 bars) - All units receive +10% defense and cost just 50% 
this turn. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 100%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 100%

Note: Olaf's units can move normally in snow, like in clear weather, but has 
snow-related effects when it rains. 

CO Power: Blizzard (3 bars) - Covers the land in snow. All enemy units have big 
movement penalties on snow, but his units are unaffected. Note that roads and 
cities are unaffected by snow. It snows for one turn only. Snow is like clear 
weather to Olaf, while rain is like snow to him. Olaf also gets +10% defense. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 110%

Note: It will snow this turn.

Super CO Power: Winter Fury (7 bars) - Inflicts two damage points to enemy 
units as well as usual Blizzard. Enemy units with 2 or 1 HP will drop to 1 HP. 
Also snows for one day like Blizzard. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%
Indirect Defense: 110%

Note: It will snow this turn and all enemy units will lose 2 HP.

Strength/Weakness: - Units are unaffected by snow, but units are greatly slowed 
down by rain.  

Olaf Strategy: Olaf is an unusual CO with an unusual power that changes the 
weather, but even with that, it's a challenge. His CO power won't help much 
unless you're playing some sort of custom map without roads. Additionally, his 
power only really delays a faraway enemy force, it won't help an  
ongoing battle and it certainly doesn't help you get into the enemy base 
faster. Small maps also make the CO power useless! However, his Super CO Power 
does damage as well, which makes him useful if you use it.  



Grit (Blue Moon CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Beat Blue Moon missions.

Hit: Cats
Miss: Rats

Infantry Offense: 100%

+50% offense. All units get +10% defense. 

Infantry Offense: 100%
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 80%
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 150%, +2 attack range
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strength/Weakness: - Indirect fire is stronger (especially when CO Power is 
used) but direct fire is weaker.  

Grit Strategy: Grit is the opposite of Max. Use Grit on stages with lots of 
choke points. Grit needs a lot of resources (to produce Medium Tanks and of 
course his Artillery/Rockets), so practice Infantry/APC deployment before 
trying Grit. Grit should probably go for the capture of the enemy HQ instead of 
destruction, but if he can find enough sniper boosts he might be able to win 
via destruction sometimes. 



Colin (Blue Moon CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Beat Blue Moon missions.

Hit: Olaf and Grit
Miss: Black Hole

Infantry Offense: 90%
Infantry Defense: 100%

Direct Offense: 90%

Hit: Lucky goggles
Miss: Swimming

Air Offense: 115%, 2 less fuel used each day

Other Offense: 90%
Other Defense: 100%

CO Power: Lightning Drive (3 bars) - Lightning Drive increases Eagle's air unit 
stats to +30% offense and +30% defense, plus all other units get +10% defense. 

Air Offense: 130%, 2 less fuel used each day
Air Defense: 130%

Sea Offense: 70%
Sea Defense: 110%

Other Offense: 90%
Other Defense: 110%

Super CO Power: Lightning Strike (9 bars) - Once the CO power of the original 
Advance Wars, it's now the Super CO Power. Unlike the original Advance Wars, 
Lightning Strike gives Eagle's air units +30% offense and +30% defense, and all 
other units +10% defense. This power also allows all units except for infantry 
to move and/or attack again as if it were a second turn. 

Air Offense: 130%, 2 less fuel used each day, can attack again
Air Defense: 130%

Sea Offense: 70%, can attack again
Sea Defense: 110%

Other Offense: 90%, can attack again
Other Defense: 110%

Note: Infantry and mechs cannot be commanded twice in the same turn.

Strength/Weakness: Air units are better and have +15% offense, +10% defense, 
and use -2 fuel each day. However, his naval units have -30% offense.  

Eagle Strategy: Eagle is a very fun player to use, because his strength is 
unusual and "breaks" most enemy strategies. Eagle, however, needs a lot of 
resources to win, since air units cost a lot. Just play using him, he's cool! 
Lightning Strike gives all but infantry-type units one more turn but weakens 
units during the same turn. However, don't take it that Eagle is an unstoppable 
CO. Many COs can beat him if you use them right. Eagle is not necessarily the 
best CO, despite Lightning Strike. Know that. 


Drake (Green Earth CO):
To Be Unlocked By: Beat Green Earth missions.

Hit: Open sea
Miss: High places

Air Offense: 70%
Air Defense: 100%

lose any health. All units also get +10% defense.

Air Defense: 110%

Sea Offense: 100%, +1 movement
Sea Defense: 140%

damage, plus loss of half fuel. Hinders enemy unit movement for one turn.  

Air Offense: 70%
Air Defense: 110%

Sea Offense: 100%, +1 movement
Sea Defense: 140%

Other Offense: 100%
Other Defense: 110%

Note: Enemy units get -2 HP (except for 1 and 2 HP units) and lose half fuel. 
It will also rain this turn. 

Strength/Weakness: Drake's air units are -30% offensively weaker, but his sea 
units have +30% defense and +1 movement range. Drake's units also are not 
affected by rain.  

Drake Strategy: Drake owns water maps. His CO power is generally wasted against 
Sami and Andy, but is reasonable against big Max or Kanbei forces. Not much to 
say, really! He's just the man to choose for water maps (without airport ones), 
because he gets +1 movement AND +1 range (Battleship) with his CO power!  
That covers + of the entire map! Only Max and Grit can match his ranges (both 
direct and indirect combined).

Direct Offense: 150%

Indirect Defense: 160%, counterattack strength 150%

Strength/Weakness: - All of Kanbei's units have +30% offense and +30% defense, 
but are +20% more expensive. 

Kanbei Strategy: For the Kanbei War Room stages, Kanbei is your best choice. 
Max players enjoy fighting Kanbei, because it is a great, challenging battle.  
While one might be tempted to roll over the enemy with Kanbei's super power 
tanks and Medium Tanks, remember that ALL of his units are powerful, and 
everything will work! (Max still has a slight edge on Kanbei on open maps 
however) 


Sonja
All units 100/100, +1 vision, HP hidden from enemies, chance to deal -1-2
Power Meter: xxxXX
Enhanced Vision: All units +1 more vision, can see through woods and reefs, and 
+10% defense

Super CO Power: Counter Break (5 bars) - Sonja's units have +1 vision and +10% 
defense, and can see through woods and reefs. Also, Sonja's units attack before 
the enemy's even if Sonja is attacked first. 

Infantry Offense: 100%, chance of dealing -1-2 damage
Infantry Defense: 110%

Direct Offense: 100%, chance of dealing -1-2 damage
Direct Defense: 110%

Indirect Offense: 100%, chance of dealing -1-2 damage
Indirect Defense: 110%

Strength/Weakness: The HP of her units is hidden to the enemy outside of battle 
and farther vision in Fog of War. She also has strong counterattack power. 
Still a little weaker overall, but better than in AW. 

Sonja Strategy: Sonja's improved from Advance Wars. Her HP is still hidden to 
foes, she still has better vision in FOW maps, and has better counterattack. 
Sonja does extremely well in Fog of War stages, yes. What about non-FOW stages? 
She's still not as horrible here than in AW, but she still won't do as well 
there. She still gets her counterattack and hidden HP bonus, though. Her units 
are always marked with ? HP to the enemy, meaning no one will ever known how 
many Sonja's units' HP is, unless it's an infantry or mech taking a property or 
you have Visuals on when playing against her or using her against another 
person.

Normal Campaign
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Whether you're new to Advance Wars in general, came out of Advance Wars knowing 
only some things, or are a veteran, you will start your Field Training (whether 
new or once again) in the first mini-campaign of Advance Wars 2 Normal Campaign 
in Orange Star. Players new to Advance Wars in general may find it a bit 
overwhelming to go through eight missions knowing everything about the game, so 
this is where the mini-campaign guide is for. However, the Campaign steps up 
its difficulty fast, and your paths will vary due to your decisions through the 
game. A new unit is hidden, as well. 


Campaign missions are rated under a point system just like War Room. Out of 300 
points, 100 each goes to Speed, Power, and Technique. 


The objective of this Normal Campaign Mode Guide is to help you to get past the 
scenario you're stuck on, but still keep some replay value so you don't 
completely look at a guide to beat the game. Have fun! 

Caution: Though these guides have been researched extensively for your viewing, 
and we have tried our best to bring you information that is accurate, we will  
not assume any liability for any troubles you may encounter on the way through 
using the guides. Game play tactics, as well as hints and strategies, have been 
included, but we do not assure complete success. Questions should be directed 
elsewhere. Some mission tactics require perfect timing and may force you to 
repeat countless attempts before results are achieved. We are also not 
responsible for the randomness of the AI which may in turn destroy or alter 
mission strategies. The AI in Advance Wars 2 is also much more randomized and 
stronger than in the original Advance Wars 2, and will use its intelligence to 
fight you. It is far more unpredictable than in Advance Wars, so it will be 
troublesome to know what will happen next, though expert players will have a 
general idea. The strategies provided by us are simply guidelines to help you 
through Campaign Mode and War Room mode. No turn-by-turn strategy can be 
followed perfectly, and that's where you step in, to beat it for yourself.

How to use this campaign guide:

This is a turn-by-turn guide. Since you move units around, here's what certain 
examples mean: 

1S - Move this unit 1 square south.
5SE - Move this unit 5 squares south and 5 squares east.
4NE - Move this unit 4 squares north and 4 squares east.
2N - Move this unit 2 squares north.
3W - Move this unit 3 squares west.
6E - Move this unit 6 squares east.
3NW - Move this unit 3 squares north and 3 squares west.
3SW - Move this unit 3 squares south and 3 squares east.

Literally, N is north, S is south, E is east, and W is west. Have fun!

Prologue

Sturm is back in Macro Land.

Hawke and Sturm ramble onward on taking Macro Land and Wars World.
Cosmo Land was taken in the past, but this is different.

Andy, Sami, and Max (in that order) talk about Black Hole's return
Andy and Max argue over the fact that Wars World has more than one
continent, and that Macro Land is not on the same continent. The other
armies have also spotted Black Hole forces in their country. Andy seems
to like this war to bring the four countries together. Andy runs to
the first campaign battle. Here is your first training mission!

ORANGE STAR MINI-CAMPAIGN

Mission Briefing: Flak and a space infantry talk on about their failed advance. 
OS soldier and Nell talk awhile about the OS victory there, and then for Andy 
to clean up the remaining BH forces. "Take out Black Hole's troops!" 


Mission Terms: After Nell's near-victory against Flak, it's time for Andy to 
gain some experience once more and get used to fighting another war. Take out 
the two infantry or the HQ to win! 


Starting Properties:

Cities          0  0  0
Factories       0  0  0
Airports        0  0  0
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


Predeployed Units:

OS: 3 infantry, 1 APC

BH: 2 infantry


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Don't let Black Hole beat you with HQ capture.

Although it might seem unlikely, watch out for HQ capture. If you're a new 
gamer, remember that if your HQ is captured, you will lose. 

2. Advance twice as fast with loaded APC.

APCs travel twice as fast as any infantry, so you should load an infantry in to 
move units east faster. 

3. Use forest defensive advantage.

Woods squares (or forest) have more defensive stars and cover than regular 
roads or even plains. Use them to your advantage when attacking or defending. 

4. Attack in numbers.

You usually can't kill a unit in a single turn unless it's a lot more powerful. 
In this case, it's an infantry clash so you should attack from two or even 
three sides against one infantry. 


Black Hole Strats: Flak is not very smart...yet, so he will rush his infantry 
at you. You should be able to take out both one by one. 


To S-Rank: Make sure you attack first by staying out of infantry range, and 
hurry on with speed and don't take more than 5 days. 


General Strategy Day 1: Move everything east.

Andy Day 1: Here, you'll have to learn to move units, capture the HQ, and kill 
infantry, and also how to use an APC. Of course, to AW fans this will be easy, 
but new AW2 players will need it. Move every infantry 3E. Move APC 3SE. End 
turn. Nell talks on and on, don't you think? Nell is too overly excited... 

Flak Day 1: He moves his infantry down to meet yours.

General Strategy Day 2: Move everything east.

Andy Day 2: Nell rambles on about how infantry attack. Move all three infantry 
3E. Move APC 6E and end turn. 

Flak Day 2: Flak moves his two infantry down.

General Strategy Day 3: Take out one BH infantry.

Andy Day 3: OK, now you can surround that front infantry with all three 
infantry, but do this, so move everything 3E and kill the infantry. 

Flak Day 3: Flak is pathetically screwed. He moves his infantry 2W to attack 
your 8HP infantry and deal 6. 

General Strategy Day 4: Destroy the last BH infantry.

Andy Day 4: Flank and kill the final BH infantry to win!


End: Andy has taken back a part of Orange Star captured by Black Hole!

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank!

Mission Briefing: Flak now has tanks against you. You have one of five units. 
You can take them! Flak talks about how to capture cities. If you're new to 
AW/AW2, this will help. Nell talks about defensive cover. 


Mission Terms: Sami is told by Nell to plan an operation against Flak in Orange 
Star. He now has tanks, so you'll want to take them out and set up a defensive 
position at the bridge. 


Starting Properties:

Missile Silos   0  0  0


Predeployed Units:

OS: 1 Infantry, 1 Mech, 1 APC, 1 Artillery, 1 Tank

BH: 2 Infantry, 1 APC, 3 Tanks


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Destroy anything that directly threatens you.

The first tank should be weakened by the mech first time, else you want to get 
some damage. At the bridge, you'll want to use both artillery and tank, and 
perhaps your mech, to defend. 

2. Use allied cities as defensive cover and to heal.

Allied cities, when you station units on them, gain +2HP each turn, as they 
heal. You might even want to take the neutral city for another healing place. 

3. Hold the bridge!

If you can't hold the bridge, you'll be flanked. You must hold it with a tank 
on the allied city. 


Black Hole Strats: Flak, as he is the enemy AI, will not look for a nice 
defensive position, but rather, tries to advance. If you can even hold the 
bridge, you win. 


To S-Rank: Hold your position at the bridge, and use tank and artillery to 
weaken forces on the bridge. Do not lose a single unit. 


General Strategy Day 1: Take out the tank and move east.

Sami Day 1: Click the mech and move it 2N to attack the tank, dealing it 7 and 
taking 1. Move your tank 2NE to finish it. Move your artillery 3E 2N. Move your 
infantry 3E and begin capturing the city. Sami's infantry are stronger than 
anyone else's, so she can capture faster. Nell rambles on again. Move your APC 
3E 4N. As you see, APCs seem to have gained another square now... 

Flak Day 1: He moves in to start capturing your city, and moves in his tank and 
other infantry units. 

General Strategy Day 2: Set up a defensive formation with your tank in front 
and an artillery in the back, with mech support. 

Sami Day 2: Sami and Nell talk about how to heal units in friendly cities. 
Finish capturing the city, and the crowd goes into uproar. Move your tank 2E 
and your mech 1NE. Move your artillery 1E to keep a defensive formation at the 
bridge. 

Flak Day 2: BH forces take one of your cities, and his tanks, APC, and infantry 
come rolling west. 

General Strategy Day 3: Deal damage to the front tank.

Sami Day 3: Ok, here's where you use your artillery, don't move it but still 
click it, and click Fire to take 6 damage on that tank. Move your APC 1S and 
move your mech 1E. 

Flak Day 3: His tanks and infantry move in, but they can't attack as you're in 
too strong a defensive position. 

General Strategy Day 4: Take out two tanks with your artillery and tank.

Sami Day 4: Fire away! Kill the tank with your tank, attack the other tank with 
your artillery, and finish it by moving your mech 2E. Move your infantry into 
the APC and move it 1N 3E. Drop south and end. 

Flak Day 4: He's screwed. He attacks your infantry on the river which takes 5 
damage. The other infantry attacks your mech. 

General Strategy Day 5-7: Take out infantry and last APC.

Sami Day 5: Use your artillery to kill the infantry in the east. Move your tank 
2E 1N to finish the other one. Move the rest towards last APC. 

Flak Day 5: Do nothing.

Sami Day 6: Attack the APC with your tank and infantry.

Flak Day 6: Do nothing.

Sami Day 7: Finish off the APC with your artillery. Good job!


End:

Sami has the exact opposite attitude for Flak as for Eagle in AW here.
But you won, so who cares? :)

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now total at 600 points.

Mission Briefing: Advancing back through Orange Star on Macro Land against 
heavy Black Hole forces, Flak and Max call each other apes and gorillas. Max is 
furious and Nell convinces Max to calm down. 


Mission Terms: Sami is told by Nell to plan an operation against Flak in Orange 
Star. He now has tanks, so you'll want to take them out and set up a defensive 
position at the bridge.

Predeployed Units:

OS: 1 Infantry, 1 Artillery, 2 Tanks, 1 Medium Tank, 1 Transport Copter, 2 
Battle Copters 

BH: 2 Infantry, 2 Tanks, 2 Medium Tanks, 1 Battle Copter


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Seize the small four-square island.

The island gives you a lot of manuevering room, plus bridge, forest, and city 
defensive advantage. 

2. Transport Copter should be used for HQ capture if you don't manage to kill 
all units or see HQ wide open. 

On this mission, later on, Flak will leave his HQ wide open. Therefore, it'd be 
useful to go for it. 

3. Take out the battle copter!

Taking out the battle copter will give you total aerial control.

4. Block bridges!

Don't let Flak's units swarm you! Guard the bridges!

5. Have your medium tank in front.

Your medium tank can withstand more damage than any other of your tanks, so use 
that. 


Black Hole Strats: Flak will move his blundering forces east to meet you. Kill 
him. 


To S-Rank: Take out his battle copter quick and don't lose any units, and use 
your battle copters to weaken his units. 


General Strategy Day 1: Move all units north, taking out the battle copter.

Max Day 1: You've got medium tanks, battle copters, and transport copters now. 
Max is strong with direct units but weak with indirect, so your artillery can 
be a bit useless here. You have the upper hand here. Click the SW battle copter 
and attack the enemy battle copter to the south to deal MAJOR damage. Use your 
other battle copter to finish it off. Click your artillery and move it 3N 1E. 
Move your medium tanks 1E 2N. Move your two small tanks to the west and south 
one square of the medium tank, next to it. Move your infantry into the 
transport copter and move it 2E 4N onto the sea. 

Flak Day 1: Flak says Max reminds him of himself. He moves all his units east.

General Strategy Day 2: Injure a medium tank with your battle copters, and move 
your land forces past the bridge. 

Max Day 2: Nell talks about how to heal battle copters and how to join units, 
and when to do so. Move in your battle copters to target the eastern medium 
tank and take off 5HP. Move your medium tank 4N. Move your other small tanks to 
the south and SE 1 square of it. Move your artillery to the south of that, and 
end. 

Flak Day 2: BH forces move east except for the damaged medium tank.

General Strategy Day 3: Take out a medium tank and a tank.

Max Day 3: Attack with your medium tank the tank left of it and kill it in one 
move. Move in your left small tank to attack his. Finish off the 5HP medium 
tank with your two battle copters, move your small tank and artillery 1N, and 
end turn. 

Flak Day 3: He moves his medium tank east.

General Strategy Day 4-5: Destroy the last medium tank to effectively cripple 
Flak, and then finish the last small tank and infantry. 

Max Day 4: With your small tank, finish off the tank next to you, and attack 
the infantry with your medium tank. Move both battle copters 3E to deal 6 
damage on the medium tank. Move your transport copter all the way west. Move in 
your small tank to attack the infantry, and move your artillery 1N. 

Flak Day 4: His medium tank attacks your small tank. You deal 2 damage like he 
does. 

Max Andy 5: Finish off his last two units any way you like.


Max and Flak continue to bicker at each other. Nell talks about how to use the 
points you get in Campaign Mode into buying maps from Battle Maps with Hachi. 
Nell talks about Speed, Power, and Technique as well. Max yells that Flak is a 
dumb name. 


Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now total at 900 points.


OK, from here, you get to choose which part of OS you want to recover. You have 
three here, all rated **. Move in west (southernmost battlefield).

Mission Briefing: With bombers and fighters on his side, Flak has a big air 
force at you. Remember though, you have some anti-aircraft gunners and missiles 
to down them, and power isn't everything... 


Mission Terms: The Orange Star and Black Hole war sets up into the skies above, 
as Max and Flak's aerial forces clash. Flak arms up his air force with stronger 
attackers, while Max gets stronger defenses. Make sure that you can repel it 
and grab the lab map from the neutral city on your island by capturing it.

Predeployed Units:

OS: 1 Infantry, 1 Mech, 1 A-Air, 1 Rocket, 1 Missile,
1 Transport Copter

BH: 1 Infantry, 1 Tank, 4 Battle Copters, 1 Fighter, 2 Bombers


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Protect your missile Day 1 with surrounded A-Air.

Your missile has some range that your A-Air will never get in taking
down planes. Make sure you keep it safe, then move out on Day 2.


2. Check aerial force range.

Remember, if you're out of Flak's range he can't attack you...

3. Grab the lab map!

The lab map is located on your island's neutral city. Capture it
with an infantry or mech and enter the hidden mission of Orange Star!

4. Take out anything in your path, but aim for bombers first.

Bombers deal the greatest damage of all of his units, and he has two.
Weaken those first, then move on to battle copters, and then, fighters.


Black Hole Strats: Flak will move all his air units south on Day 1 and
attack. Make sure you are ready, and counter it with your 4 A-Air and
one missile.


To S-Rank: Go defense Day 1, then counterstrike on Day 2 and give
yourself a pronounced advantage.


General Strategy Day 1: Take out the battle copter and injure a 2nd one,
making sure the A-Air protect the missile and that your other planes are
out of range.

Max Day 1: Down the battle copter with your missile. After this, Sami
will note the new CO Power star chart, instead of a bar for CO powers.
Your battle copter in the sea is doomed. Move it 1W and attack the
battle copter to do damage. Move mech 2N to capture city. Move rocket
and infantry all the way up.

Flak Day 1: Flak explains how to use stronger aerial units like the
fighter and bomber. His fighter takes out your battle copter. His
bomber comes in to bomb your anti-air. His other battle copter finishes
it. He moves the rest towards you.

General Strategy Day 2: Injure his air force with your four A-Air
and one missile.

Max Day 2: Finish capturing the city with your mech as defense against
the tank later on, which turns out to be a Black Hole lab that
researches new weapons like...*shhh*. Yeah. Move your southern A-Air
to take 9 damage off of the bomber and get your CO power ready. You
could do that and get the CO Power Max Force or save up for the
Super CO Power Max Blast. Save up for now. Take out the battle copter
with an A-Air, and down the other bomber. With your missile, down his
battle copter.

Flak Day 2: His air force is half down in one day! Flak uses
Super Power, Super CO Power Barbaric Blow! His fighter moves towards
your battle copter, his bomber does nothing to your missile, and his
weakened battle copter does ONE damage to your rocket. Apparently, you
took out so much his Super CO Power is useless. His tank moves in to
deal 3 damage to your mech, which you deal back. His infantry moves
forward.

General Strategy Day 3-4: Use Max Blast and destroy all remaining
units with your now superior numbers.

Max Day 3: Max now has his Super Power. Go to the main menu and go down
to a 3-star icon called Super. Use Max Blast! Move his A-Airs east and
destroy the bomber, the fighter, AND the battle copter. If you must,
use your missile to finish the fighter. Destroy the tank with your
battle copter. Move everything else north.

Flak Day 3: Do nothing.

Max Day 4: Finish off the last infantry with your battle copter and
infantry.


End:

Flak still points to the upcoming Black Hole invasion as moral
support, and says Sami is Max's girlfriend. Max and Sami argue that
Black Hole has no respect.

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now have 1,200 points.

With your victory, a new mission opens up for you on the island
far off. It is a *** mission, so don't go just yet. Instead, move to
the mission farthest south and west. This one deals with sea units as
well.

Mission Briefing: Lash has appeared! She taunts Nell, who tells Sami to
bring her prisoner alive.


Mission Terms: This is your first timed mission, and you must eliminate
Lash's forces through HQ capture or by elimination. Though you may not
have Victory March quickly, you should care to advance from both the
western and eastern fronts, advancing most forces at the base but keeping
an eye towards the HQ.

Predeployed Units:

OS: 3 Mechs, 1 APC, 1 Artillery, 2 Tanks, 1 Rocket, 1 Lander, 1 Sub,
1 Cruiser, 1 Battleship

BH: 3 Infantry, 2 A-Air, 1 Rocket, 1 Sub, 1 Cruiser


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Don't let BH beat you with base-built units.

The bulk of your land forces should take care to eliminate anything
Lash builds from this base.


2. Don't lose your transport copter. You can send it into your cruiser
for safety.

The transport copter is required to be saved, and it might even be
useful if you use it right...

3. Win the naval war.

You can seize naval advantage early by destroying the sub, cruiser, and
even the rocket in the first few days to give your lander a bit of room
to land later.

4. Land forces on the eastern shore to march towards the HQ.

You can win by HQ capture. Sami has Victory March, and you might even
activate it. You'll need to win the naval war before you can do this,
though...


Black Hole Strats: Lash will focus early attacks on your transports
unless you keep them out of range, so their forces will go and seize
power near the base.


To S-Rank: Take out their navy first, then advance on both fronts with
superior numbers. Lash just can't deploy fast enough...


General Strategy Day 1: Take out Lash's entire useful naval force but
her cruiser. Move remaining units north. Save your T-Copter.

Sami Day 1: Nell notes that a deployment base is near Lash. Nell notes
Sami's infantry and transport power as well. You spot that you have
a lander here, and a transport copter in trouble. Click the battleship
and Nell gives you a short brief. Fire on the rocket to the north and
deal it 8 damage. Click your cruiser to get a short brief, then attack
Lash's sub. Move your sub 4N 1W and dive after that brief. Move the
bottom tank and an APC with a mech into the lander. Click the lander
to get a description, then move the lander 5E 2N. Move your other mechs
2N, your tank 5W 1N. Click your rocket and move it 1E 3N. Move your
artillery 1W 4N. Remember that you now only have 7 days left to beat
this mission. Move your transport copter into your cruiser. End.

Lash Day 1: Lash tells Sami that Flak will be coming on Day 7 to kill
Sami's forces. This is the reason why you must win quickly. Lash moves
in infantry to capture a base and a city. His A-Air move eastward.

General Strategy Day 2: Move everything north.

Sami Day 2: Nell talks about how sea units sink if they don't have
enough fuel. Move your battleship 5N. Move your cruiser 4E...don't
drop the transport copter! Move your sub 1NW to finish off hers. Move
your lander 1E 3N. Move both mechs 1NW. Move your tank 4N 1W. Move the
artillery 2W 3N. Move the rocket 2NW. End turn.

Lash Day 2: She finishes capturing the base and city, and deals 1
damage to your battleship with the rocket. Her A-Air comes west.

General Strategy Day 3: Land on the eastern shore and advance north.

Sami Day 3: Take out the rocket with your battleship, then move your
lander 2N 1W. Drop your APC west, and drop your tank north. Rise your
sub. In the west, attack the infantry with your tank from the south,
move the northern mech 2N, the southern one 2W, and the artillery AND
rocket 2N. End turn.

Lash Day 3: She uses her CO Power Terrain Tactics. Her A-Air comes in
to attack your artillery. She takes a city in the east and builds an
infantry.

General Strategy Phase 4: Advance north on both fronts, using your
battleship to help take out the infantry in the east, and your
artillery and rocket in the west.

Sami Day 4: Use your rocket to attack the western A-Air, move your
artillery 4S, and bring up your mech to take it out. In the east,
attack the cruiser with your battleship and finish it with your sub.
Drop the transport copter from your cruiser north. Move your tank north
to attack the infantry from the north, then move up your APC 1E 4N and
drop the mech north. In the west, move your mech 2N and attack the
infantry with your tank from where you are.

Lash Day 4: She finishes capturing a city and kills your mech with her
A-Air. One infantry moves west, one east to HQ.

General Strategy Day 5-7: Sweep entire BH forces in east and west.
West with more firepower, east because there's no BH base there.

Sami Day 5: Use your battleship to attack the infantry blocking the
way to the HQ and finish it with your tank. Move your mech back into
the APC, and move it onto the HQ, dropping the mech north. In the
west, attack the A-Air with your rocket, and use your tank and mech to
finish off the infantry. Move your artillery 1N. Move your T-Copter
towards HQ. End.

Lash Day 5: Continuing to take cities, the AI takes another one and
attacks the APC with her infantry, dealing none.

Sami Day 6: You only have 2 days left, or as Nell says, tomorrow! In
the west, take out the Anti-Air with your artillery, and with your
rocket and mech, take out the infantry north of you. Attack the
infantry with your tank. With your battleship, attack the infantry
near you. Take out the infantry next to the HQ by using your tank,
and move your APC 5W to block the infantry from going east. Move your
mech to start capturing the HQ.

Lash Day 6: The infantry attacks your APC, so she can't build! The
other one continues to take a city.

Sami Day 7: You can actually go for elimination now! Take out the
infantry with your battleship. Attack the infantry on the deployment
base with your rocket, and finish him with your tank.


End:

Sami drags a dummy of Lash over. Lash apparently escapes. You won!


Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now have 1,500 points.


With your victory, Orange Star has only two more provinces for you
to take back. Select the mission to the southeast (not on the island).

Mission Briefing: Lash tells Flak about her new invention, the Black
Cannon. Hawke urges Flak to complete his conquest of Orange Star, but he
seems be reeling backwards, eh? Commander Andy and Nell notices the
giant cannon, and Max argues Andy can't take it, he can with his
strength. Andy still is confident, however, and will do it himself.


Mission Terms: Andy's Time introduces you to Lash's new invention, the
Black Cannon, which deals five damage to the strongest unit with the most
HP in its range, which covers some 82 squares and has 99HP. Ignore it if
you can until you attack it.


Starting Properties:

               OS BH Neutral

Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


Predeployed Units:

OS: 1 Infantry, 1 Transport Copter

BH: None


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Stay out of Black Cannon range until you attack it, and when you do,
attack from range.

Although the Black Cannon on this first mission will only attack every
few turns, it's to your best interests to stay out of the way, as you
can capture the middle base out of Black Cannon range, as well as send
rockets to smash it from afar.


2. Capture the middle and northwest factories.

Flak is slow and won't reach either base in time if you use your
transport copter. It's also a nice way to flank him.

3. Occupy Flak's factory within several days.

With your superior property advantage, you should be able to seize
control of it so Flak doesn't go slapping you when you attack Lash's
Black Cannon.


Black Hole Strats: Flak doesn't get much, so he'll build infantry and
small vehicles to attempt to match your superior forces. Chances are
he won't last...


To S-Rank: Take both neutral factories over ASAP, and also neutralize
Flak's deployment base. Smash BH's small force quickly.


General Strategy Day 1: Move toward central island.

Andy Day 1: You notice you only have 1 infantry and 1 transport copter,
but you do get deployment bases to deploy new units. Nell talks on
about how to make units. Look around on the map. BH has a base north of
you, east of the cannon. The cannon has 99HP and can destroy practically
everything; it takes out 5HP from any unit it attacks. Watch out with that.
It takes as much damage as a Md Tank, so attacking it with a Md Tank will
mean 55% damage, that will take out 55HP from it (so it's not that difficult
to eliminate!). There are three bases to the west of both of you. Move the
infantry into the transport copter and move it all the way west.
Deploy two infantry.

Flak Day 1: The cannon will fire starting Day 2, and Lash tells Flak
to advance south.

General Strategy Day 2: Land on central island to grab that base, and
move infantry north.

Andy Day 2: Check out the cannnon's range, which seems to cover a
massive range of about 82 squares! The best you can do right now is
avoid being fired upon. Move your T-Copter all the way up and drop to
the south onto the base. Move your western infantry to capture the
city, and move the other one 3N. Build an infantry in the left base
and tank in the right base.

Flak Day 2: An infantry moves SE to take a city. He builds another one.

General Strategy Day 3: Move units north and take middle base.

Andy Day 3: Nell informs you to attack the Black Cannon door. By the
looks of it, it's best if you attack with an indirect unit or you'll
get blasted. Start capturing base on middle island. Finish capturing
other city. Move left infantry 3N, right infantry 2N 1W. Move tank
6N. Make another infantry and another tank. Move T-Copter 2S 4E.

Flak Day 3: He finishes capturing a city, moves infantry, and makes
yet another one. Poor guy with no money :)

General Strategy Day 4: Take central island, strike BH units from
the south.

Andy Day 4: Finish capturing the base on the central island. Move your
northernmost infantry 3N to start capturing the city. Move up your tank
5N 1W to attack the infantry on the city. Move your infantry from 3S of
the transport copter and move it 3N into the copter, and move it 3NW.
Move your two infantry 3N and tank 6N. Build an APC on the left base
and an infantry on the right base.

Flak Day 4: He begins capturing a neutral city, backed by two other
infantry. He makes a mech.

General Strategy Day 5: Seize control of the left base to surround
the remaining BH forces.

Andy Day 5: Move your transport copter 1W 5N and drop the infantry to
the left. Move your northern tank 3W to kill the infantry. Move your
other tank 6N. Finish capturing the neutral city on the right side with
your infantry. Move the infantry on the central island 3N. Move your
left infantry (that is left) 3N and the one east of it 2N 1W. Move your
infantry on the right base 2W into the APC. Move the APC 1E 5N, and
drop your infantry north. Build nothing.

Flak Day 5: BH units capture ONE city, and another infantry unit is
built.

General Strategy Day 6: Close in on the last base and build a rocket.

Andy Day 6: OK, you've at a clear advantage now. Move your infantry
west of the T-Copter 2W to begin capturing the base. Move your left
tank 1N to attack the infantry on the city, and move your infantry
on the middle island 2N to finish that one off. Move your other tank
3W 2N to deal damage to the mech to the left. Build a rocket on the
middle island base. Move all infantry except the one just above the APC
3N. Move that last infantry into the APC 5N and drop east. End turn.

Flak Day 6: BH infantry moves 3S to attack your infantry. Another one
moves onto a city and attacks another one. A mech moves west and fails
to kill your T-Copter.

General Strategy Day 7: Move rocket up, surround BH base with anything
you can muster.

Andy Day 7: Move your rocket 3N. Move the infantry above the rocket
1NE to finish off the mech. Finish capturing the top base. Move your
bottom 9HP tank 1SE and deal that infantry 6 damage. Finish it with
your 4HP infantry without moving from below. Move the infantry below it
3N to attack the infantry on the city. Move the infantry east of the
APC 2N to finish it. Attack the infantry on the base with your tank.
Move your APC 4N, and your T-Copter 4E 1S. Move your other infantry
3W. Create an artillery on the middle island base.

Flak Day 7: He's doomed. His infantry on the base attacks your T-Copter
and does three damage.

General Strategy Day 8: Effectively take the surrounded BH base and
build a rocket.

Andy Day 8: Move your rocket 2N 1W. Move your artillery 4N. Your tank
west of that enemy infantry should attack it and bring it to 2HP. Move
your T-Copter 6W. Move your full health infantry 2W 1N and finish that
infantry off. Move your 9HP infantry 2N and capture that enemy base.
From your northwest base, move that infantry 1W 2S and build a rocket
from there. Move your APC 6W, your 4HP infantry 2N 1W, your other 9HP
tank 5W, your 5HP infantry 3W, and your full health infantry 1S to
capture the BH city.

Flak Day 8: He has no base or units. Do nothing.

General Strategy Day 9: With your two rockets, destroy the 99HP cannon.

Andy Day 9: With your rocket on the base, attack the cannon down to
44HP. Finish it off with your other rocket. You win!


End:

Andy and Flak have a clash of words and then Andy spots Max's tank
force. Maybe it'll be helpful?

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now have 1,800 points.

With most of Orange Star now secure, you have to hop to the last
island. Andy will provide you assistance in marching into the
mountains to take out that final Black Hole lab.

Mission Briefing: This is the first FOW map, but the last Training-type
mission. Andy will come here and wipe out Flak's remaining units and
lab. You have 7 days to complete this mission. Run like the wind, Andy!


Mission Terms: Now that you've found Black Hole's lab inside Orange Star,
you have one week to penetrate it and seize the plans for the new Black
Hole unit, the Neotank. This is your first FOW mission.


Starting Properties:

               OS BH Neutral
Cities          3  4  3
Factories       0  0  0
Airports        0  0  0
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


Predeployed Units:

OS: 1 Infantry, 1 Mech, 1 APC, 1 Recon, 1 A-Air, 1 Tank, 1 Medium Tank,
1 Artillery, 1 Rocket

BH: 2 Infantry, 1 Recon, 1 APC, 1 A-Air, 1 Artillery, 1 Rocket, 1 Lander


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Remember Black Hole has a lander, artillery, and rocket that hides
in forest on the eastern half of the map.

They can snipe you if you don't take them out (exception: lander), and
they're just plain annoying...


2. Infantry on mountains give you +3 vision.

Your recon can't do all vision...your infantry and mech can give you
extra vision.

3. Move in groups.

One unit can't take out any unit or army, even your medium tank, as
you may be sniped. Move units up together.

4. Capture the secret lab or destroy all units.

Instead of taking out all units, you may want to capture the secret
lab instead, since you have a time limit...but destroying all units
can be easier.


Black Hole Strats: Flak has forces in the north that will attack you,
but he'll leave his artillery, rocket, and lander hidden from view and
snipe you when he has the chance. Find them and kill them. One is in
the north, one is next to the HQ.


To S-Rank: Fog of War makes the mission somewhat more difficult, but
you should be able to take out the northern forces with ease and move
on.


General Strategy Day 1: Use FOW tactics to uncover the area, then
take out an infantry, an APC, and an artillery.

Andy Day 1: Nell rambles on about FOW tactics, and you find yourself
spotting only ONE artillery of BH. Select your infantry and move it
2N onto the mountain. Move your A-Air 1E 5N and take out the infantry
to the north. In the east, move your mech 1NE. Move your medium tank
3N 2W to weaken that APC 9 damage. Move your tank 1W 4N and attack
the artillery from the east. Kill the artillery with your artillery.
Move your recon 3NE. Move your APC 2N. Move your rocket 1E 3N. End.

Flak Day 1: His recon attacks your infantry on the mountain, and moves
his A-Air to the east of your recon to attack it. His APC moves south.

General Strategy Day 2: Take out remaining unhidden units except a
recon.

Andy Day 2: You are informed by Sami that an indirect unit hides in
the forest. Nell also points out the reef that you can hide in FOW in.
Move your 6HP infantry 1S to kill the 1HP APC. Move your A-Air 1S to
attack the recon. Move your recon 2W 1N and move your medium tank 3E
2S to destroy the A-Air. Move your artillery 3E 2N. Move your tank 1S
4E with 5 damage. Finish off that infantry with your rocket. Move your
mech into the APC and move your APC 1W of the HQ, and drop your mech
on the HQ.

Flak Day 2: Your mech will be attacked by a rocket.

General Strategy Day 3-4: Uncover hidden units, then kill them.

Andy Day 3: Move your mech 2E to reveal the rocket. Move your tank
1S 3E to deal 6 damage to the rocket. Move your A-Air 3S to finish
off that recon. Move the damaged infantry 1E 2N. Move your recon 1E 5N
into the forest. Move your APC 6N. Move your medium tank 2E 3N. Destroy
the lander with your artillery and rockets.

Flak Day 3: He can't do anything.

Andy Day 4: Finish off the rocket with your damaged mech. If it isn't
finished, use your tank. Move your mech 2E. Move your medium tank 1E
2N and recon 3E to destroy the last artillery to win!


End:

Flak urges everyone into the factory. With the shutting of the final
lab and you learning about the new Black Hole unit, the Neotank,


Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 = S-Rank! You
now have 2,100 points.

Mission Briefing: Flak is surprised by the sight of Adder, who was
supposed to invade Yellow Comet. With his wordplay, he angers Flak.
Here is a factory and base that is the center of the BH war on OS. If
you can take this out, victory on BH will be a reality, at least in
OS, for now. You have the base advantage here.


Mission Terms: Entering the final mission of the Orange Star Campaign,
you hold a disadvantage due to Black Hole's factory, which is given
units through a pipeline. You'll want to seize the neutral airport early
and smash the pipeline seem.


Starting Properties:

               OS BH Neutral
Cities          2  2 11
Factories       3  1  2
Airports        0  0  0
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Destroy the pipeline seem for a quicker and easier victory.

See the weak spot, the pipeline seem, in the pipeline? That's where
you should hit it to break the pipeline connection and stop the
factory from building more, as well as win the mission.

2. Take the neutral airport away from BH hands.

The lone airport is vital if you want to take out the seem fast.
Capture the base below it, too, if you don't plan on taking Flak
down within first 10 days.

3. Take lone eastern cities if you have the time.

The eastern cities will supply that extra 2000 a day you could use.

4. Block factory from producing units.

The BH factory can be blocked from cranking any more units out, by
blocking the three doors.

5. Produce an APC and infantry early.

Use both units to speed to the airport/base.

6. Seize the west as a diversion.

This won't really help speed or technique, but if this mission is a
bit rough, marching units west and taking that SW neutral base will
be useful.


Black Hole Strats: Flak's forces have stepped up a notch, and now
uses more indirect units to throw mushrooms on your head. Block
the bridges with anything you can, and you'll want to seize the skies
even with A-Air and missiles threatening you.


To S-Rank: You'll want to rush and crush the pipeline seem while keeping
some strong attacks on units at and near the factory for power.


Sami Strategy:

Sami Day 1: Build an infantry from the SW base and an APC from NW base.

Flak Day 1: Build an infantry from base and mech from factory, which
shifts west.

Sami Day 2: Move infantry 2N 1W into APC, then move APC 2N 5W and drop
infantry north onto the river. Build a mech from NW base.

Flak Day 2: Start capturing cities with infantry and mech, and build an
infantry.

Sami Day 3: Move infantry 2N to start capturing the airport, move mech
2W, and move APC 1SE.

Flak Day 3: Finish taking both cities with infantry and mech, move
units, build an infantry. Factory produces recon.

Sami Day 4: Move mech 1NW into APC, then move APC 4W 3N. Finish
capturing airport.

Flak Day 4:	Finish taking city, and surround base with his units.
Build infantry, factory produce an artillery.

Sami Day 5: Move infantry 2N off airport. Move APC 2NE and drop
north. Create a bomber from new airport.

Flak Day 5: Finish taking city, attack infantry with artillery,
create APC from base, make missile and mech from weird-looking
factory.

Sami Day 6: Move bomber 4W 1N to attack mech, move infantry 1SW
into APC, attack artillery with mech, and move APC 2NW. Drop
infantry to the east.

Flak Day 6: Attack APC with artillery, and build a tank. All
other units move south except for a few that move east.

Sami Day 7: Move infantry 1SW and attack the artillery to your
right. Move mech 1NW. Move bomber 3E 1N. Move APC 2SW. Build
a battle copter.

Flak Day 7: Build a rocket. Move most units south to neutral
zone.

Sami Day 8:	Move battle copter 4W 1N to attack mech, then move
bomber 2E 3N to attack pipeline seem. Build a battle copter. Move
APC 1E 2N.

Flak Day 8: Continue seizing neutral base and cities nearing your HQ.

Sami Day 9: Move newly built southern battle copter 5W to attack missile.
Move APC 1E. Move mech 2W to kill mech. Kill artillery with infantry.
Using other battle copter, finish off missile. Use bomber to finish off
pipeline seem.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!


You have beaten the Orange Star Campaign!



BLUE MOON



Olaf informs Grit that Black Hole forces have attacked Blue Moon. Grit
argues that they're only losing the countryside wastelands, which makes
Olaf furious. Colin arrives to tell Olaf that he is the new BM CO.
Colin seems to call everyone "sir", so Grit tells him not to get worked
up. Olaf is furious.

Choose the top mission first with Colin.



Mission 9: Reclamation

Mission Briefing: Olaf hears about the Black Hole invasion on the
northern frontier, the border with Orange Star. Colin volunteers to
go, while Grit doesn't seem to care as much, just like in the past
war. Grit acknowledges that Colin is now a full-fledged CO, and Olaf
lets him. Grit gives him a little advice. Lash is informed that
Colin leads the Blue Moon army, though she wanted "the bearded
geezer, or at least the scarecrow", pointing to Olaf and Grit. She
orders a retreat because Colin will be boring, but decides to
attack anyway.


Mission Terms: With your first Blue Moon mission comes a new CO,
Colin. His units are weaker than everyone's, but they're
cheaper. You'll want numbers early on, especially with infantry.

Starting Properties:

               BM BH Neutral
Cities          0  0  6
Factories       3  3  1
Airports        0  0  3
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Seize the middle airport.

The middle airport gives you a place to build cheap battle copters
to aid your cause. They will be helpful for when you are unable to
kill a certain unit in one hit.

2. Take the neutral factory.

It's highly unlikely you will want to build units from your HQ bases,
so you'd better take one closer to the enemy.

3. Produce infantry early game.

As Lash will have lots of infantry as well, beat her with numbers
before you move on to tanks and copters.


Black Hole Strats: Lash will build APC and infantry early on. She'll
also rush for both airports and eventually build tanks. You should have
the upper hand.


To S-Rank: You may want to build a medium tank or two to destroy those
pesky A-Airs and tanks, but add battle copters as well. This should be
quite easy.


Colin Day 1: Build three infantry.

Lash Day 1: Build three infantry.

Colin Day 2: Move the right one 1W 2S, and the left two 1N 2W. Build
three more infantry.

Lash Day 2: She builds two more, and moves two east towards you, one
towards the airport.

Colin Day 3: Move your southern infantry 3S, your uppermost infantry
2W, the one just below it 2W 1S to capture that city, and move the
infantry on the right base 3W. Move the other two 1N 2W. Build an APC
from the northern base.

Lash Day 3: BH begins capturing a city and builds an APC.

Colin Day 4: Move your southern infantry 1S to start capturing the
airport. The infantry capturing the city should move 2S to start
capturing the base. Your NW infantry near the cities should move 2W
to take that one. The infantry on the road should move 2W 1S to capture
the city. The one on the forest should move 2W, and the last one should
move 1E 2N into the APC. Move the APC 1S 5W and drop to the left. Build
an A-Air from the northern base.

Lash Day 4: She finishes capturing one city, starts another, and begins
capturing the airport. He moves east and builds an artillery.

Colin Day 5: Finish capturing the airport and three cities. Move the
infantry on the mountain 3W. Move the infantry not doing anything 1W
to capture that city. Move the APC 2W, and the A-Air 1S 5W. End turn.

Lash Day 5: She finishes capturing a city and an airport and moves east
without building anything.

Colin Day 6: Your westernmost infantry should move 1N and grab that
airport. Finish capturing the other city. The one on the other airport
should move 3N. Now that you have a western base, build a Medium Tank
from it after moving the infantry 2W from it. Move your other two
infantry 2W as well. Move your A-Air 4W. End.

Lash Day 6: BH starts capturing a city and attacks your infantry on
the bottom mountain. He moves his artillery east and builds a tank.

Colin Day 7: Finish capturing the airport with your infantry. East of
the river, move that infantry 3N. Move your A-Air 3S and attack north.
Move your 5HP infantry 2N 1E. Move the top one on the city 2S. Move
down your medium tank 2S 1W. Move the infantry near the airport 1S.
Make nothing.

Lash Day 7: Her forces move north. She builds another tank.

Colin Day 8: Move your medium tank 1S 3W to severely damage that tank.
Your infantry right of the airport should move 2S 1W to kill the 4HP
infantry and relieve your A-Air. Move your A-Air 3N 1E to damage the
artillery. Move the infantry on the airport 3S and attack east. Move
the one 2E of the artillery 1W and deal it 1 damage. Move the 5HP one
1W, and the last one west of the river 2W into the APC. Move the APC
2W 3S and drop east. Move that infantry east of the river 1N 2W. Build
a tank from the western base and a battle copter from the airport.

Lash Day 8: Her 5HP artillery deals damage to your damaged infantry on
the city. Her tank moves up, and her combined infantry assault yours
and take out your infantry on the neutral city. She builds a mech.

Colin Day 9: Move your medium tank 2W to deal that tank 7 damage. Move
your A-Air 1W 2S and attack left on the infantry. Move your battle
copter 1SE to finish off the artillery. Move your infantry besides the
APC 2W to finish off the 3HP infantry. Move your full health infantry
1W to kill the weakened one. Move 5HP infantry 1W. Move your 4HP
infantry 2S into the APC. Move your tank 3SW. Build another fighter
and another tank. Move the infantry east of the river 3W.

Lash Day 9: She joins her two tanks to 7HP and kills your 5HP infantry.
Your APC gets attacked as well. She builds two mechs.

Colin Day 10: Attack east with your medium tank to eliminate the tank.
Move the tank 1N 4W to attack the APC. Move your A-Air 1NW to attack
the infantry. Move your other battle copter 4W 1S to attack the
transport copter. Move your 5HP infantry on the mountain 1S 2W to
finish off that one, and then move your battle copter 3SW and deal the
other infantry damage. Move your APC 4S 1W and drop the infantry east.
Move your infantry west of the mountains 1W 2S and finish that
infantry. Move your tank 3SW and your eastern infantry 1W 2S. Build a
medium tank.

Lash Day 10: He moves his mechs, transport copter, and builds a mech,
an infantry, and an artillery.

Colin Day 11: Move your A-Air 4S. Move your top battle copter 3S to
take out that transport copter. Move your other battle copter 1S 4W to
attack the mech. Move your back tank 1S 4W. Move your medium tank 2W.
Move your 4HP infantry 1W into the APC. Move your other tank 1S. Move
your 5HP infantry 2W and full health infantry 1N to capture that city.
Move that last infantry 3S. Move your medium tank 2W 3S. Build a
transport copter.

Lash Day 11: Move up units, build two more mechs.

Colin Day 12: Move transport copter 4W 1S. Finish the mech below with
your battle copter, then use your other one to attack the mech at
the bridge. Finish it with your medium tank. Take out the artillery
with two tanks, capture the city, and stay out of range of the two
mechs. The first is fine.

Lash Day 12: She attacks a tank with a mech, and builds a mech
and infantry.

Colin Day 13: Hit mechs with battle copters, then finish the mechs
but the top one with your A-Air and tanks. Build a bomber. Block
two bases and let only an infantry and mech alive.

Lash Day 13: Use Prime Tactics and nearby destroy your A-Air with
his mech. He builds an infantry.

Colin Day 14: Sweep down the last mech with two battle copters and
a medium tank. Attack the infantry on the base with all you've got.

Lash Day 14: Move infantry to attack transport copter, build a mech.

Colin Day 15: Use Gold Rush and kill the mech with two medium tanks.
Use your bomber to bomb the final infantry, you win!

Later on I was able to beat this in 13 days...just move for
elimination with battle copters and tanks.


End:

Lash retreats and Colin has won his first battle!

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

At this point, select Mission 10 to be the bottom Grit one.

Mission Briefing: Grit wakes up to find an angry Olaf asking him to
seize a victory over the Black Hole forces in the south because it
was his duty to defend the mountains. Grit seems to take it lightly
as always but still goes before Olaf can say more. Grit spots the
vast number of medium tanks even in Fog of War and decides not to
fight them head on. Adder says that he went to offer a proposition
to Grit, that they want Grit to join the Black Hole Army. Adder
seems to say Grit's feelings about protecting Blue Moon, which
wasn't much, but Grit doesn't respond. Grit agrees that Adder is
correct, but that Adder has no call to treat the civilians and
people in Blue Moon as they pleased. Adder had destroyed whole
cities, and Grit finds Adder his #1 enemy.


Mission Terms: With Grit's first mission an indirect combat one, it
shows his power with rockets. Use recon and Super Snipe to your
advantage.


Starting Properties:

               BM BH Neutral
Cities          0  3  0
Factories       0  0  0
Airports        0  0  0

Missile Silos   0  0  4


Predeployed Units:


BM: 2 Infantry, 4 Recon, 2 Artillery, 4 Rockets

BH: 4 Mech, 4 Recon, 12 Medium Tanks


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Missile silos are your friend.

The missile silos are on your side, so they will be you that fires
them as long as the infantry survive going east. Use them to hone
down on enemy medium tanks. They have the impact of Sturm's Meteor
Strike, except they only do 3 damage. Aim carefully, they'll even
injure your units. No unit will have lower than 1HP, however.

2. The mountains are your friend, too.

The mountains will keep your rockets safe from all but mechs, and
your recon will be as well.

3. Weaken advancing units.

By Day 2, let your rockets fly some damage onto the medium tanks that
advance. When mechs arrive, take them out first, as they can kill your
rockets easier.


Black Hole Strats: Adder's medium tanks are hindered by mountains and
are forced to go all the way around to hit anything of yours that they
see, so the only thing that will do big damage is mechs and the few
medium tanks that may make it to the end.


To S-Rank: Have your recon as far as you can without being hit, so they
can be spotters for your rockets and artillery. Missiles will aid the
attack on clustered medium tanks as well.


General Strategy: You have rockets. Grit is awesome with rockets. They
fall in a single turn to medium tanks, though. Luckily, the mountains
will protect you for a while, so take out ALL you can so he doesn't
advance too far and take them out. Also note that in the east you have
missile silos, the new property. They don't do much damage but they can
be useful on medium tanks that really need to be weakened.

Grit Day 1: With your left rocket, attack the middle medium tank. Move
your rocket on your HQ 2W. Move your top and bottom rockets to the 1E
and 2E of those two that are already used. Move both infantry 1E. End.

Adder Day 1: His 2 recon moves in to attack your 2 infantry. His medium
tanks all move east.

Grit Day 2: Here, you're taught from Olaf that you can use missile silos
to hone missiles on Adder's forces. Use the back rocket to take out the
northern recon. With your second to back rocket, injure his bottom
recon. With the one left of that, attack the middle of the three top
medium tanks you see. With your front recon attack to the 4S 1W, the
medium tank closest to your southern forces. End.

Adder Day 2: His second recon attacks your infantry on the top. His
bottom one moves up and his 1HP one flees. More medium tanks move up
in the south, and your infantry is taken out in the south.

Grit Day 3: OK, so you're overwhelmed. Don't worry just yet. In the
south, use your artillery to take out the medium tank. In the north,
attack the medium tank with your artillery. Move your 1HP infantry 2E.
Use your CO Power Snipe Attack. Move your middle two recons 4W (the
top one 4W 1N). Kill the recon with your HQ rocket, the 5HP medium tank
with your next one, going left, weaken the bottom medium tank that you
spot with your next one, and with the front one, weaken the full health
medium tank in the north. End turn.

Adder Day 3: Adder uses Super CO Power Superwinder to move units
even faster. His mech moves 4 squares to capture your city. His recon
and medium tanks move in on both fronts. Your rocket is destroyed by
mechs (the front one).

Grit Day 4: Move your 1HP infantry 1S 2E. With your northern artillery,
attack the medium tank furthest right. Continue hitting medium tanks
with your rockets, the ones with most HP. With the front rocket though,
use it to kill the mech on the road. Move a recon in the middle to
leftmost city without attacking, right one back to the eastern forest,
but take the NE one. In the south, move artillery 2W.

Adder Day 4: BH takes one of your cities, northern artillery injured
by weakened medium tank, two mechs completely rid your next two rockets
ineffective.

Grit Day 5: Use Snipe Attack. Injure the mech with your southern
artillery, take out the front 5HP medium tank with your northern
artillery, and weaken the mountain mech with your non-injured rocket.
With your 2-HP rockets, take out a recon. With your last recon, take
out an infantry as well. Move 1HP infantry 3E. End.

Adder Day 5: Sideslip. He captures your buildings but this time doesn't
attack with those crazy mechs. Your northern artillery is injured.

Grit Day 6: With northern artillery, weaken a medium tank. Move 1HP
infantry 3E and target just east of the artillery and mech, taking
down the 3-10-2 HP medium tanks to 1-7-1 HP. With your full HP rocket,
attack the mech taking your city. With your other two, take out the
2HP mech and injure the southern recon. In the east, move your lone
recon in forest 3S 1W to attack the enemy recon and to protect your
last infantry. In the south, move your artillery 1N 4E and your recon
3E 1N. End.

Adder Day 6: He continues to capture the city and in the east, the
recon wars continues. In the north, he combines his 1+7+1 medium tanks
to form 9HP and also moves up his 6HP and 5HP medium tank.

Grit Day 7: Move your full HP rocket 3N. Move your 1HP infantry 2S.
Take out the recon with your two recon. Move your front 2HP rocket 2E
onto the HQ. Move your other 2HP rocket 2E. Move your middle recon 2NW
to finish off the final mech. With your northern artillery, attack the
6HP medium tank. Move southern artillery 1E 2N.

Adder Day 7: His medium tanks move in and hide in forest except the
9HP one.

Grit Day 8: With your full health rocket, deal 6 damage to the rocket.
Move your 1HP infantry 1S to launch a missile. Center it on the 3HP
medium tank. Move everything else to take out the last medium tank!


End:

With Adder's medium tank brigade routed, he retreats! Grit doesn't seem
to care what Olaf says, but who cares?

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

Three new missions open up here. Take the middle Olaf mission.

Mission Briefing: Olaf prepares his forces to enter his hometown and
liberate his hometown from Black Hole forces. Olaf and Lash have some
talk about what happened to his hometown due to Lash. Olaf is furious
and demands to take Lash 1 on 1 for his hometown back and to find
what Lash has hidden, a lab map.


Mission Terms: As Olaf has turned Olaf's hometown into near-rubble,
Olaf is prepared to send his forces to liberate it and hopefully, find
it not as damaged as he thinks it is...


Starting Properties:

               BM BH Neutral
Cities          0  0  7
Factories       2  2  1
Airports        0  0  0
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Guard the mountain passes.

If you guard the mountain passes, then Lash is unable to get past.
This includes the northwest neutral city with that river pass.

2. The secret lab map must be taken.

The secret lab map is found on that small SW island area, the neutral
city there in the southwest and closest to enemy HQ other than the one
directly above it. Take it to get the hidden Blue Moon mission.

3. Take the east fast.

Your side of the map should be taken ASAP so that you have enough cities
to solidify your advance towards the neutral middle base.

4. Smash Lash's units with power.

When you have more money and props than her, and with the neutral base,
start building some stronger units like massed tanks.


Black Hole Strats: Lash will be crossing rivers and mountains to sneak
up on your unguarded cities. She'll also build mechs, artillery, and
tanks.


To S-Rank: Take the middle factory early and win in 20 or less days
to seize a S-Rank, or at least in speed. Don't lose too many units.


General Strategy (300-Pt.):

You'll want to beat it in just 16 days. Build infantry only from the right 
two bases to take cities. Combine when necessary, you don't want to lose more 
than two units for full technique. Advance with an A-Air and LOTS of tanks. 
This is very effective because Lash builds slow, and you can outnumber them. 
Just remember to take that southwest city on the island-ish area for the lab 
map.


Turn-by-turn, 285 Pt. S-Rank:

Olaf Day 1: Build two infantry.

Lash Day 1: Build two infantry.

Olaf Day 2: Send both infantry 3W and build two more.

Lash Day 2: BH starts capturing two cities and builds two more infantry.

Olaf Day 3: Move both northern infantry 3W. In the south, move the
front one 3N and the back one 3W. Build two more infantry.

Lash Day 3: Lash takes two cities and builds two more infantry after
moving the other two east.

Olaf Day 4: ANY infantry in range should capture a city, and the one
close to the base should capture the base. The remaining infantry
should move 3W. Make a recon on the northern base and an infantry on
the southern base.

Lash Day 4: Her infantry move west. Your northern infantry is fired
upon but the city's defensive power leads you well. She builds a recon
and an APC.

Olaf Day 5: Capture three cities and the base. Continue capturing the
northwest city. Move other two infantry 3W. Move recon 3W. Build
nothing.

Lash Day 5: His forces move eastward. The infantry in the north
resumes attacking your infantry. She builds nothing either.

Olaf Day 6: Finish capturing northern city. Move infantry on central
base 1SW to attack that infantry. Move infantry on northeast city
2S 1W as well as the one west of it. Move recon 5W. Make tank in
central base. Move infantry (in terms of closest to middle base) in
this order: 2N 1W, 2N, and 3W. End turn.

Lash Day 6: Recon moves up, two infantry combined kill yours on the
southern front. In the north, the city/river fighting continues.

Olaf Day 7: Retreat your 4HP infantry from the northern city 3E and
move your recon 1W to finish off that infantry. Move tank 1SW and
finish off 6HP infantry. In the south, move the northernmost
infantry 1W to east of tank, and the other two 2N 1W. The other two
northern infantry should move 1SW. Build an artillery.

Lash Day 7: Her recon attacks your infantry. She doesn't dare attack
anything else but does move in.

Olaf Day 8: Move your tank 3W 1N to attack the enemy tank. Use your
artillery to attack the enemy recon. On the northern front, keep your
recon's guns firing at the infantry left of you. Move your 3HP
infantry next to the recon 1N 2E and move the 4HP infantry 1W 2S.
Move BM infantry in to surround the BH infantry and kill it. Move
other infantry west.

Lash Day 8: Recon attacks 4HP infantry to 2HP. Builds mech and
artillery. Moves units east.

Olaf Day 9: Continue dealing damage with recon on northern front. Kill
enemy tank with yours. Move everything from southern front west,
including artillery. Attack the recon from the south with a full
health infantry. Build a medium tank. Move 3HP infantry southeast.

Lash Day 9: An infantry comes in to down your 2HP infantry.

Olaf Day 10: Destroy enemy APC with tank and artillery. Capture
southwest neutral city. Attack anything in sight but stay away from
enemy artillery range except for that tank. Use the 3HP infantry to
take out the 1HP recon. Move medium tank 1S 2W. Create an artillery.

Lash Day 10: Destroys tank with artillery, infantry with infantry.

Olaf Day 11: Finish capturing the southwest neutral city. It is a map
that pinpoints to the hidden enemy lab. You will now unlock the hidden
Blue Moon lab mission. Continue taking out units with northern recon,
and use that near-full health northern infantry to chase hers. Move
medium tank to take out infantry in the way to the northwest and
southwest. Move front infantry north of the medium tank, and use an
infantry to attack her mech and block your artillery. Build a rocket.

Lash Day 11: Her recon and infantry attack your artillery, and the
mech kills your infantry.

Olaf Day 12: Use Blizzard. Send infantry from SW city northeast.
Weaken recon with medium tank. Move up rocket. Kill wandering Lash
infantry in the east. Build a tank. Injure APC. End.

Lash Day 12: Advance troops east.

Olaf Day 13: Move Rocket 1S 2W. Take out APC with southern artillery.
Take out mech next to northern recon with artillery and recon. Finish
infantry with medium tank. Move the rest up and build a tank.

Lash Day 13: Advance and build an infantry and mech.

Olaf Day 14: With your southern artillery, attack the mech. With your
rocket, attack the infantry on the base. Kill another infantry with
medium tank. Finish the southern mech with your tanks. Advance toward
SOUTHWEST base. Build a tank.

Lash Day 14: Mech attacks northern recon. Move infantry up in the
south. Build two mechs.

Olaf Day 15: Continue sweeping units with indirect units first, aiming
for mechs first. With your tanks, you should be able to take out the
mech and infantry defending SW base...as the artillery is out of the
way. Use your infantry as well to help. By end this should be cleared
all but 3HP artillery. Finish off mech in the north with medium tank.
Build a rocket.

Lash Day 15: Build an infantry and mech.

Olaf Day 16: Take out the final artillery and infantry in the southwest
with two tanks and a rocket. Use your infantry to capture the SW base.
Take out the 5HP recon with your artillery, and injure a mech in the
NW. Move up units to NW and end.

Lash Day 16: She uses Prime Tactics. Unit movement cost goes to 1, but
she only has 3 full mechs even after building one. She doesn't attack.

Olaf Day 17: Start capturing HQ. Attack mechs with medium tank and
a tank. Finish the 2HP mech with your 5HP infantry, and with an
artillery and infantry, take out the mech in front of your tank. Move
tank to cover SW base, and move all other units towards NW base.

Lash Day 17: Take out an infantry with a mech, advance mech, and use
mech.

Olaf Day 18: In the northwest, kill front two mechs with rockets and
artillery. Use the medium tank and a tank to finish that final mech.


End:

Lash leaves and you've won. Olaf's memories come back to him as he
looks at his shattered hometown. He promises to avenge Black Hole's
actions.

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

This victory opens up a mission on the island. Anyhow, move to the
northwest flag to Mission 12.

Mission Briefing: The Blue Moon COs spot a giant missile silo being
operated by the Black Hole Army. Surprisingly, Andy comes with a
small air force to aid you in Olaf's fight to take out the giant
missile silo. In 15 days, your forces will be blown up along with
the missile silo.


Mission Terms: Andy joins Olaf in this 15-day mission to neutralize
the giant missile silo by taking over 8 cities surrounding it to
take it. Destroying the pipelines will help for the central and
southern fronts.

Predeployed Units:

Northern Front:

OS: 1 APC, 4 Battle Copters, 1 Fighter, 1 Bomber
BM: 2 Infantry, 2 Mechs, 2 APCs, 2 Tanks, 2 A-Air, 1 Artillery, 1 Rocket
BH: 1 Infantry, 1 Mech, 1 Recon, 1 APC, 1 Artillery

Central Front:

BM: 2 Tanks, 4 Medium Tanks, 1 Rocket, 1 Missile
BH: 4 Tanks, 4 Medium Tanks, 4 A-Air, 3 Rockets, 2 Missiles

Southern Front:

BM: 2 Mech, 3 A-Air, 1 Rocket
BH: 1 Rocket, 2 Medium Tanks, 2 Neotanks, 5 Battle Copters, 3 Bombers


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Destroy both pipeline seems in the east to provide some aid to the
south with Andy's aerial forces.

2. Save your Blue Moon infantry and mechs and leave them unhurt before
you start taking the eight cities.

3. Use your northern forces to boost the central front forces.


Black Hole Strats: Flak has powerful units, but doesn't seem to know
how to use them. He will move it east, but since he only has three
rockets even near the silo, he doesn't really have that much of
a chance.


General Strategy: An even quicker way to do it in Day 11 is to advance
in the middle while staying out of rocket range. Use the medium tanks
and tanks' major powers to strike through the middle, while using
most of Andy's forces in the SOUTHERN front to go for total elimination
in just 10 days (dominating the middle in seven). Taking over 8 cities
should be done in 11 days. Easy 300 points.


To S-Rank: In the south, you'll want to block those Neotanks and medium
tanks from getting through with Andy's fighter or bomber. Sweep the
middle with your northern two fronts' forces of Olaf's. For power rating,
eliminate most of the southern front, if not all.


Olaf Day 1: Send all your forces as far west as possible.

Andy Day 1: Move the bomber SE as far as possible. Move your back
battle copters all the way west to attack the APC and mech. Send the
fighter to the bomber. Send other two battle copters northwest,
avoiding the missile range. Send APC 2SE.

Flak Day 1: He attacks Andy's APC. His forces move east. He builds
an infantry.

Olaf Day 2: Grit informs Olaf that Olaf needs to capture the 8
cities in the middle to deactivate the tower. Andy reminds Olaf to
destroy the pipes. Capture cities in northwest, as much as you can.
Advance toward pipes on the Northern Front but do not attack it.
In the Central Front, attack as far west as you can, injuring both
rockets. Move everything as far west as well except for one medium tank
which should attack the southern pipeline and deal it 55 damage. In the
south, start capturing the airport with one mech and keep A-Air out of
bomber range.

Andy Day 2: In the west, stay out of missile range and take out an APC,
recon, and mech. Use the bomber to bomb the northern pipeline and deal
it a massive 95 damage. Move APC 2E, end turn.

Flak Day 2: Brute Force. Advance units east. Rockets attack your
attacking tanks in the middle. All units move east. Infantry built.

Olaf Day 3: Use your 5HP tank to blow up the northern pipeline and
send units over. Finish capturing cities. In the south, capture the
airport and attack two bombers with two A-Air. Destroy a battle copter
with the other one. Try to keep your rocket protected, as he has
Neotanks coming at you. Destroy two rockets with your small tank and
medium tanks in the center, then use big bad medium tanks to take damage
next turn while dealing heavy on those pesky BH A-Air. Send all units
possible from northern front down to central except for one APC. End.

Andy Day 3: Move Andy's bomber 5S to destroy that pipeline. The missile
will destroy it, but you have to blow it up anyway...move your fighter
3S. Move your battle copters all east except one which should start
blowing up the northwest scorched pipeline to deal 25 damage. Move APC
down.

Flak Day 3: Your medium tank is bombarded by his remaining rocket and
medium tank in the north, and his missile downs your only bomber. In
the south, you lose an A-Air to a bomber while your mechs and rocket
get random hits as well.

Olaf Day 4: Winter Fury! That Super CO Power unleashes slow AND deals
2 damage to all enemy units AND boosts your power. Weaken the near
full-health bomber in the south, and take out a battle copter. In the
north, use your rocket to knock hit points off of the medium tank.
Use your artillery to take that out. Bring up a full health medium tank
to take out a small tank in the north of the Central Front. Use a tank
to clear the tank in the southern half, then finish off the A-Air with
your medium tank. Bring in your last one to form a solid medium tank
line and injure the tank. Send all units west (or southwest from
Northern Front). Remember to capture that last city up there...

Andy Day 4: Continue giving a smack on that pipeline. Move other
battle copters east. Move APC south. Keep fighter out of missile range.

Flak Day 4: Barbaric Blow. A rocket attacks northern medium tank. A
mech falls to battle copter fire on the Southern Front and together,
the air force wipes out a lot of your weakened army. The northern
medium tank is finished by another medium tank. He still makes another
infantry.

Olaf Day 5: On the Southern Front, wipe out a battle copter and a
bomber. On the Central Front, use your northern rocket to take 5HP off
of the northern medium tank. With your southern rocket, attack the
missile. Finish off the 3HP small tank with your medium tank in the
south. Wipe out the missile with your other medium tank. Send two tanks
there to weaken the A-Airs. Finish capturing last city in the Northern
Front and send everything southwest.

Andy Day 5: Send fighter south to the Southern Front to wipe out the
bomber. Continue to kill the pipeline seam. Move battle copters down
to Central Front.

Flak Day 5: Infantry and rocket destroyed on southern front with battle
copters. A tank is attacked on the central front by another one.

Olaf Day 6: On the Southern Front, take out both battle copters with
your A-Air. Build a bomber. With the rocket, weaken the small tank in
the north and finish it with your tank. Send up a high-HP tank to
attack the medium tank in the north and deal it 1 damage. Add an A-Air
to finish it from the north. Send an artillery there to get ready to
attack down that final rocket. In the south, take out an A-Air and
weaken the other one with two tanks. Move up a medium tank to attack
his. Move units west, south from northern front.

Andy Day 6: Move battle copters as far west as possible without getting
them in missile range. Take out the seam with the battle copter in the
west. Move APC west. Move fighter west to the forest to block ANY unit
from passing, so the Neotanks won't make it.

Flak Day 6: Brute Force. Your A-Air is weakened by the rocket, and his
medium tanks weaken a tank and destroy a medium tank. He builds an APC.

Olaf Day 7: Day 7 now. You have 8 days to clear BH forces from Central
Sector and take cities. Hurry! Use an artillery and 2 tanks to take
out the northern rocket. Winter Fury. Use your medium tank to attack
his higher-HP one. With a tank, finish off his 1HP one. Use another
tank to finish off his A-Air. Have the mech start capturing a city.
Move rocket up so you can kill the medium tank next turn. On the
Southern Front, move your bomber and A-Air forward.

Andy Day 7: Move south towards Southern Front, but avoid missile range!

Flak Day 7: An artillery nearly kills your tank. His medium tank
strikes your A-Air. He advances pointlessly on Southern Front.

Olaf Day 8: Destroy the medium tank with your rocket. Send units to
attack missile. Send the rest to Southern Front. Move infantry and
mechs to capture the cities ASAP. Bomb down one Neotank. Make another
bomber.

Andy Day 8: Use battle copter to attack missile as well. Send other
battle copters to Southern Front along with APC. Move fighter west
to block units from getting through.

Flak Day 8: Attack your A-Air. Advance.

Olaf Day 9: Finish capturing THREE cities. Attack missile. Move units
to Southern Front. On Southern Front, destroy a Neotank and a Medium
Tank with your bombers.

Andy Day 9: Take out an infantry on Southern Front with battle copters.
Continue moving them south. Move battle copter north on Central Front
to chase artillery.

Flak Day 9: Advance, move up A-Air, build mech.

Olaf Day 10: Finish off missile, continue capturing cities, bomb
out a medium tank and rocket. Move units to Southern Front.

Andy Day 10: Chase artillery on Northern Front. Eliminate two infantry
on Southern Front.

Flak Day 10: Barbaric Blow. He's pissed. He advances and builds a mech.

Olaf Day 11: Blizzard. Finish capturing 5 cities. Advance to Southern
Front. Bomb the A-Air with both bombers. Take out a single infantry
unit with your A-Air. No need to move anything else. Build a bomber.

Andy Day 12: On the northern front, deal 4 damage to that artillery.
Weaken a tank with battle copters.

Flak Day 12: Advance mechs, make another one.

Olaf Day 13: Finish capturing 6th city, start capturing 7th and 8th
cities. Send a tank up to the artillery on Northern Front. Wipe out
the tank with your rocket from Central Front. Bomb an APC and a mech.

Andy Day 13: Hyper Repair. Take out a mech and APC on the Southern Front
and weaken a second mech. Attack the artillery from the west on Northern
Front.

Flak Day 13: Move up mechs, build another one.

Olaf Day 14: Victory day, here it is! On the northern front, take out
the artillery with your tank. In the south, weaken a mech and kill one.
Capture the last two properties. You win by neutralizing the missile
silo!


End:

Olaf downplays the role of Andy, but he was quite useful, eh?

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

This victory opens up a mission to the northeast province with a star.
Go to the southeast island flag for Mission 13!

Mission Briefing: Olaf gets furious over Black Hole forces using
Blue Moon to do whatever they want. This is their laboratory base.
Choose Grit. You have bases, but you only have 15 days to win or Lash
will self-destruct everything.


Mission Terms: As you took the Toy Box secret city's lab map, you have
only 15 days to seize the lab and its Neotank plans. Attack with rockets
and medium tanks in the east while firing missiles at enemy forces near the
lab.


Starting Properties:

               BM BH Neutral
Cities          0  1 13
Factories       3  2  3
Airports        0  0  1
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  8


Predeployed Units:

BH: 2 Medium Tanks, Rocket


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Missile power is important. Send missiles raining down on troops near
the lab and in the northwest, and don't let the enemy take one.

2. Seize that neutral base halfway to the lab. It's useful for when you make
forces from there.

3. Make APCs to send infantry to take properties fast.

4. Take the lab with advancing tank and indirect forces.


Black Hole Strats: Lash will take properties in the northwest, then advance 
from 
the southwest towards your HQ while sending a few units to stop you from 
taking 
the lab.


To S-Rank: Remember, you only have 15 days. Move quickly through the east,
and with missile help, use tanks and rockets to smash the lab defenses.


General Strategy: Very easy mission...missiles to hit everything at the lab 
area, 
then just send a few units over along with an infantry to capture the lab.
Piece of cake to win in 13 days.


Grit Day 1: Build three infantry.

Lash Day 1: Build two infantry.

Grit Day 2: Move western infantry 3N, and the other two 3E. Build three
infantry.

Lash Day 2: Start capturing two bases. Build two infantry.

Grit Day 3: Unleash a missile silo in the west, target center on the
rocket/lab. Start capturing a city. Move east. Build an APC.

Lash Day 3: Finish capturing two bases. Start capturing another city.

Mission Briefing: It appears to Grit that while Olaf is inspiring
his troops, he notices THREE black cannons aiming fire on you
through the forests in FOW. Lash seems to be the other Sonja of the
BH universe, knowing all the intel and now having THREE Black
Cannons against you. Grit accepts the challenge. You must reach the
HQ with ANY unit to win. Your goal here is to keep everything in
forest or out of range of the Black Cannons so they won't kill you.


Mission Terms: Lash has created three Black Cannons in Blue Moon territory,
and has a stronghold at the HQ. Lash has infantry coming up towards your


Starting Properties:

               BM BH Neutral
Cities          0  1 13
Factories       3  2  3
Airports        0  0  1
Seaports        0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  8


Predeployed Units:

BM: Two Infantry, 1 Mech, 2 Recon, 2 APC, 1 A-Air, 4 Tank, 1 Medium Tank,
4 Artillery, 2 Rocket

BH: 2 Infantry, 2 Mech, 4 Recon, 6 Tank, 1 Medium Tank, 1 A-Air, 3 Artillery, 1 
Rocket 


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Black Cannons have heavy firepower. Take cover in forests and make sure no 
enemy 
unit sees you.

2. Use forests to avoid enemy units and Black Cannons.

3. Advance slowly.

4. Keep forces together.

5. Take back HQ building with any unit.


Black Hole Strats: She will use her overpowering laser cannons and units that
also hide in FOW to smash you. She will also try to take your HQ with infantry
that move up and attempt to smash anything that gets close.


To S-Rank: Advance north with everything together, using recons for vision
and other units. Have forests with units pushing forward to save your HQ.


General Strategy 300-pt strategy: As long as you keep your units out 
of sight, Black Cannons can never attack you and the enemy will have to 
find you first. Kill the few units at first, but save your artillery and 
rockets as well as tanks on the final assault on the units at the city. 
Sneak a recon towards the HQ through the forests and make it.


Turn-by-turnish 290-pt strategy:


Grit Day 1: Weaken the tank and recon you see at first sight with your
two artillery. Send the bottom tank of both sides to finish them off
from the side. With your right rocket, kill the artillery. Move up both
other tanks 3N. Move up your left rocket 3N. Move up your two infantry
2N and 2N 1W into the forest. Move everything as north as you can,
preferably in forest. Don't go past the road though...

Lash Day 1: The right Black Cannon fires and deals 5 damage to your
medium tank. Units move north and towards HQ.

Grit Day 2: Advance north everything through the forest, and take out
a tank in the west with your rocket. Weaken that recon with a tank.
End.

Lash Day 2: Black Cannon hits your left tank.

Grit Day 3: Finish the recon with your weakened tank.

Lash Day 3: Infantry and mechs continue to move up.

Grit Day 4: Move up units.

Lash Day 4: Get owned if you hit ambushes and lose a few units...

Grit Day 5: Advance north fast to take out his infantry/mechs.

Lash Day 5: Black Cannons will hit you, but you must sacrifice some
units for speed here. You'll lose a few more units here.

Grit Day 6: Fire back with Snipe Attack and all your direct units.

Lash Day 6: Prime Tactics.

Grit Day 7: Kill infantry, mechs, artillery, and tanks in your way.
Sneak recon and APC with mech toward HQ and maybe a few other units
just in case like a tank.

Lash Day 7: Advance north.

Grit Day 8: Take out a mech, move APC to 1S of HQ and land the mech
to win!


End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

Your victory brings you down to two missions. Go to the southern
white flag one!

Missile Silos   0  0  0


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Guard the chokepoint by taking the neutral cities nearby,

2. Take out all you can, but Lash has too many units and too many bases to
deploy from. Do not worry about pushing her back, just take out everything at
the chokepoint.

3. Establish a strong defensive force of direct units in the front and 
indirects 
in the back that smashes all that come to you.


Black Hole Strats: Lash will capture all the neutral bases and properties near
her, and advance with all air and ground units that rush forward to destroy 
you. 


To S-Rank: After a few days, be ready for her first forces. By the end of the
first week, you must be ready for everything, as her second week's attack is
fierce...

Colin Day 8: A nervous Colin convinces himself to stay alive for another
week. Kill the battle copter with your A-Air. Use Gold Rush! Create TWO
Neotanks. Deal damage all the way to 1HP on the medium tank with your
artillery.

Lash Day 8: BH forces advance as they take most of the cities on their
side of the isle. A tank comes in to attack your infantry. His Medium

attacks your infantry with a rocket. A bomber kills one of your 1HP
infantry. A tank takes out your 2HP infantry, and an A-Air takes another
one.

Colin Day 12: Attack the advancing A-Air with your Neotank, and finish
it with the rocket. Move your A-Air out to finish off the bomber, and
use the Neotanks to take out the tank. It's also good as defense for
your back line. With your artillery, hit an infantry. Build 4 infantry.

Lash Day 12: A rocket strikes your infantry on the mountain, and his
medium tank attacks your weakened Neotank. Her infantry advance.

Colin Day 13: Use a rocket to injure the medium tank, and an artillery
to finish it. Use Gold Rush! Take out an infantry with one of your
Neotanks, and weaken one with another one. Build a rocket.

Lash Day 13: Lash's infantry comes up to take your city, and a battle
copter injures one of your infantry at the shore that is at full
health. The rocket moves up.

Mission Briefing: Flak, Lash, and Adder talk about how to save the
remainder of their holdings in Blue Moon, the factory. Olaf and Grit
say they're ready for this challenge, when Nell pops up under Grit's
request. Grit's help turns out to really be useful when an OS-BM
alliance is helpful in defeating BH. Choose BM Olaf and Sami. Olaf
has the bases while Sami has the predeployed units. You'll want Olaf
to get the two bases.


Mission Terms: In this 14-day defensive mission, you must keep Lash out for
the entire time with your cheaper but weaker units.


Starting Properties:

               BM OS BH Neutral
Cities          1  0  4 13
Factories       3  0  2  2
Airports        0  0  0  2
Seaports        0  0  0  0
Missile Silos   0  0  0  3


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Block factory doors when you get there to prevent more factory-produced 
units. 

2. Take airports and missiles and fire missiles on Lash's concentrated forces.

3. Attack north with Sami early to reduce the enemy's forces early on, then 
come 
in with Olaf.

4. Control the middle with your units.

5. Bring in forces with Olaf like tanks and then smash the pipeline seem with 
them. 


Black Hole Strats: Lash will capture all the neutral bases and properties near
her, then take control over the airports on both sides. She aims to take out 
Orange 
Star early so you lose. Her factory also produces many units that will try to
kill you. If you have any units blocking her factory doors, she will aim for 
those 
first.


To S-Rank: If you can block her factory doors, you will have the advantage as 
Lash 
can't build much. Take the left side and smash the pipeline seem.

Prologue
--------

Sonja calls Kanbei over, who was looking for his sock. Sonja is unsure
of what the forces have, but she is sure it is all over Wars World.
Sonja thinks they're Black Hole forces, but Sensei interrupts that they
are hostile. Sensei joins the Yellow Comet Army to aid Sonja who
gathers intel and Kanbei who controls Yellow Comet land.

OK, so you've now beaten the Blue Moon Campaign. Take the southeast
mission.

Mission Briefing: Sonja informs Kanbei they installed missile silos
to protect Yellow Comet. With the Black Hole attack, the missile
silos are unguarded and Kanbei rushes off with Sonja's intel help
to take on Flak. Sonja informs Kanbei on how to use the missile silos.


Mission Terms: The missile silos in the middle are up for grabs for both 
sides. 
Whoever speeds to the middle and grabs them and the bases will have a 
noticeable 
advantage over the enemy. Take the island and charge southwest.

Missile Silos   0  0 10


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Secure the silos in the middle with fast troops, along with the bases 
there. 

2. Build island forces and fire missiles on massed enemy forces.

3. When you reach the HQ, camp on enemy bases.


Black Hole Strats: Flak will take a seaport and build a lander, but his 
primary 
forces will either be in the north or the east, depending on how long it takes 
to 
launch two missiles and take those properties.


To S-Rank: For the first few days, race to the middle to launch those missiles
while taking properties and silo attacks on the way.

a rocket in the middle base. Move infantry 3N on eastern shore.

Flak Day 13: Move up tank, infantry, APC, and artillery.

Kanbei Day 14: Take out 7HP APC with your medium tank from above. Move
your other one 1E 3S to take out the artillery. Move your rocket 2E 1S.
Move in formation to attack, without having tanks in front of medium
tanks. Make a tank and an infantry in two bases on the middle island.

Flak Day 14: He moves his tanks up to you.

Kanbei Day 15: Take out the tank just below you with your medium
tank. Move your other one 3S. Move everything south but not farther
than medium tanks.

Flak Day 15: Move units east.

Kanbei Day 16: Use rocket to kill mech. Move front medium tank 1S 3W to
take out that small tank. Move your other one 4S 1W to take out the APC.
Move your forces forward, staying out of range of the two enemy tanks.
Make two APCs and fill them with two full health infantry.

Flak Day 16: Move units forward, move infantry to deal 1 damage to
rocket. Build two mechs.

Kanbei Day 17: Take out the infantry with your tank, and move your
right medium tank 1NW to weaken the tank to the east. Move the other
medium tank 1W to take out that tank. Use the rocket to take out an
infantry. Send everything else southwest that still avoids mech/artillery
fire and takes out the small tank at 1HP. Send APCs down too. Build
another medium tank.

Flak Day 17: Barbaric Blow. Moves units east, makes two mechs. See why
to keep out of range?

Kanbei Day 18: Take out a mech with a medium tank. Weaken one on base
with the other one. Have the rocket attack the lander. Move everything
down...stay out of range of the mechs. Build another rocket.

Flak Day 18: Move mechs out, make a mech and APC.

Kanbei Day 19: Move rocket on base 1S. Attack lander with rocket. Take
out two mechs with two medium tanks. Take out another two with three
small tanks. Move APCs west, making sure to drop one on the eastern base
which is now empty of units. Move the rest down.

Flak Day 19: Attack an infantry with an artillery, attack APC with
mech.

Kanbei Day 20: Destroy two mechs, artillery, and APC. You win!

With a Kanbei victory, apparently Flak is one of the greatest losers of
all time, losing to Orange Star, Blue Moon, AND Yellow Comet. And
Kooper says he most likely smells too. Sonja hurries to tell Kanbei an
apology for the silos, but Kanbei refuses to accept it, as it helped
him more.


End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

Take the mission on the western isolated island for Mission 18.

Mission Briefing: Sonja informs Kanbei they installed missile silos
to protect Yellow Comet. With the Black Hole attack, the missile
silos are unguarded and Kanbei rushes off with Sonja's intel help
to take on Flak. Sonja informs Kanbei on how to use the missile silos.


Mission Terms: The missile silos in the middle are up for grabs for both 
sides. 
Whoever speeds to the middle and grabs them and the bases will have a 
noticeable 
advantage over the enemy. Take the island and charge southwest.


Starting Properties:

               YC BH Neutral
Cities          1  2  8
Factories       2  2  2
Airports        0  0  0
Seaports        0  0  3
Missile Silos   0  0 10


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Secure the silos in the middle with fast troops, along with the bases 
there. 

2. Build island forces and fire missiles on massed enemy forces.

3. When you reach the HQ, camp on enemy bases.


Black Hole Strats: Flak will take a seaport and build a lander, but his 
primary 
forces will either be in the north or the east, depending on how long it takes 
to 
launch two missiles and take those properties.


To S-Rank: For the first few days, race to the middle to launch those missiles
while taking properties and silo attacks on the way.


General Strategy 300 Pter: To beat it even faster, use only tanks,
recons, lots of infantry, and of course, battle copters for speed.
Have two transport copters around and win in 16 days.

A different victory screen showing infantry forces shows up here. Good
job!

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pt. S-Rank

Your victory opens three new missions. Now all your choices are ****.
Take the southernmost one.

Mission Briefing: Sonja's intel shows that the Black Hole forces
are encamped there. Sonja spots the stronghold but Kanbei refuses to
let her go. Sensei convinces Kanbei to let her go. Sonja spots the
8 cannons surrounding the fortress and knows to kill all 8 to win
or capture the HQ. Adder laughs, and Sonja quickly notices that
it's CO Adder. There is a hidden map to the secret lab here, which
is the southwesternmost neutral city. It's in FOW, so it's Sonja's
specialty. It'll still annoy you a bit though...

Predeployed Units:

BH: 1 Infantry, 2 Mechs, 4 Recon, 2 Tank, 1 Medium Tank, 1 A-Air, 1 APC,
1 T-Copter, 2 Artillery, 4 Rocket, 5 Battle Copter, 2 Bomber


General Strategy 297 Pt Strategy: Do a bit of the same as the other one,
but read my strategy for Hard Campaign of this mission. You basically
build a wall of infantry in front, then have tanks, A-Airs, a recon,
and artillery behind it for the initial attack. Defeat them and then
hit the minicannons. You can take your time, but technique is major
so you must build infantry or other units every turn. 23 days will do.

Turn-by-turn 275 Pt Strategy:

Sonja Day 1: Build an APC from NW base and infantry from other two
bases.

Adder Day 1: He moves two or so bombers, 3 indirect units, 2 medium
tanks, 3 tanks, two copters, 4 infantry, and an A-Air (estimate, as
this is FOW) east. That's all with my ears...

Sonja Day 2: Move southern infantry 3W. Move northern infantry 2W into
APC, which should move 4N 2W and drop west. Build a tank from NW base,
infantry from NE base.

to that tank, then move the northern one 3W to attack the other one.
Move top infantry 1W. Move APC 2W. Build A-Air from new northern base.
Move southern A-Air 2W 4N. Shift northern infantry 1W. Move SW infantry
3E. Build an A-Air from SW HQ base, NW base, an infantry.

and artillery, weaken APC with recons, attack A-Air with tank, destroy
tank with battle copters. Move other units east.

Sonja Day 6: Move northern A-Air 2W to destroy battle copter. Move tank 2S
1W to destroy tank to the east. Move southern A-Air 4W to weaken battle
copter. Shift NW infantry 1N 2W. Move southern infantry 3W. Move bottom
A-Air 1N 4W to attack invading bomber. Move APC 5S and make an A-Air from
northern base.

Adder Day 6: Sidewinder. Attack infantry with bomber, finish taking city
with mech, move units east, attack A-Air with A-Air, infantry with tank.
Attack infantry with battle copter that destroys itself. Destroy A-Air
with mech, APC with recon. Move all other units east.

Sonja Day 7: Counter Break. Move northern A-Air 3N to attack infantry
taking a neutral port. Move NW infantry 2S to attack tank. Destroy bomber
with A-Air in the south. Move SE infantry 1NE onto city to attack tank.
Move next-to-north A-Air 2S to destroy mech to the left. Move tank 2S 1W
of the A-Air and weaken it. Build a tank from northern base, a tank
from NW HQ base, and two more infantry.

Adder Day 7: Continue taking northern port, and destroy both infantry
that attacked the tank with two recon. Move other scattered forces at you.

Sonja Day 8: Move northern tank 4N 1W to destroy infantry. Move northern
A-Air 2SW to take out T-Copter. Move southernmost A-Air 5W 1N to destroy
tank. Move 2nd to north tank 2E to eliminate A-Air. Move 2nd to north A-Air

Move both top A-Air 1S 2W to destroy artillery and reveal a rocket. Shift
SW infantry 1SW to take city. Move next to west A-Air 2N 4W. Move SW APC
3N 2W. Move eastern APC all the way north. Move tanks northwest as well
as SE A-Air.

Adder Day 11: Attack A-Air with rocket.

Sonja Day 12+: Continue sending your forces to eliminate the minicannons
and the units near it.

End:

Adder is surprised, but still blames it on bad luck. Adder is forced to
retreat, and you win by clearing the fortress! Kanbei is impressed with
Sonja's ability as well. "Perfect planning wins the day!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 97 Technique = 297 Pts. S-Rank

Now with three missions with ****, and a lab with ***** in the
northeast, you have little options. Choose the southeast mission.

Mission Briefing: The laser cannon has been deployed for Adder on a
mountain. Flak doubts YC will actually go up it, but Adder replies
that he'd siege YC cities if they don't. Flak helps him deploy
infantry. The cities are for bait, it turns out... So Kanbei wants
to fight, but Sonja notices the trap and notes that the cities
aren't too important. Kanbei replies that they are YC COs and

Mission Briefing: Black Hole seems to be ready to sign a peace
treaty with Yellow Comet with their heavy losses in the country,
and are giving a favorable proposal to Yellow Comet. Sonja
believes it's a trap, Kanbei still wants to hear out. They reach the
peace treaty location and it seems Adder is clearing obstacles on the
road to reach YC. Sensei accepts the challenge. Sonja tells Sensei
the pipe is indestructible but that the seam can be broken. Sensei
knows this battle as only a skirmish in comparison to the past.
Sensei must destroy the three minicannons to win. Look around, the
map is big. Take out the seams to bring reinforcements from the
south to the north. Also you don't have allied cities in the NE
corner for no reason. You will get soldiers from there when you use
the CO Power or the Super Power.

Sensei Day 1: In the north, move your medium tank 2W 3N, move tank 1N
5E, and move artillery 2N 3W. Note this will play a lot like Mighty
Kanbei! from AW, so you should know to defend the choke points with
style. Build an artillery from the right base. In the south, move all
bombers 3E 4N. Move battle copters 2E 4N. Build two infantry from both
remaining bases. Move all 3 infantry into transport copters 3W and move
them 6E. Drop east.

eastern base 3N 2E. Infantry in the west 1W 2N. Move medium tank and
artillery 1NW. Build two artillery in northern bases. In the south, use
your SE bomber and move it 7E to bomb Adder's A-Air. Use top two bombers
to bomb the two seems above you. Move one bomber in between them, and
the other one to severely injure the infantry next to it. Move your
battle copters east and have one take it out. Send all transports and
one infantry to airport. Use the other three to capture cities near
base. Create another infantry.

Adder Day 2: Move down vast army.

Sensei Day 3: Finish capturing two cities and start capturing the
airport. Use the bomber that attacked before to attack the other A-Air
and take 3 damage while dealing another 8. Blow up the seems with the
same bombers, then send the other two to bomb the next two seems. Use
your battle copters to weaken the medium tank nearing the airports,
take out a 2HP A-Air, and nearly kill an artillery. Use T-Copters to
surround the medium tank and use infantry. In the north, attack
the mech with your artillery and medium tank to attack tank in the
left, while finishing the A-Air with artillery and tank in the right.
Send another artillery to both sides. Build an artillery in the left
and an infantry in the right.

Adder Day 3: Move down massive army. In the south, attack infantry
with tank and attack transport copter with medium tank. In the north,
advance and use some mechs to cross mountains. Also attack right tank
with medium tank.

Sensei Day 4: In the north (right), attack the medium tank with both
artillery. Move the tank 1S from the city. Move the infantry from the
eastern base 3N and build another one. In the west, move the left
artillery 1W. With the right one, injure the full-health tank. In
the south, finish capturing the airport and move ALL infantry off
cities. Use CO power Copter Command! Back to the north (left), take out
the tank above your medium tank with it. Take out the mech with your
infantry, and then move your 9HP infantry up to attack the 4HP one.
Move other artillery 1W 3N onto city. Do not move infantry to the right.
In the south, finish the next seems with your two bombers and move up
your other two to start blowing up the next two. Use three battle
copters to kill a mech, injure a recon, and injure a tank. Use your
last bomber to finish off that other medium tank. Move infantry from
there northeast to take out tank, and surround other medium tank with
two transport copters. Move other one to infantry on airport. Build
infantry from bottm base. In the top left one, build an infantry as
well.

Adder Day 4: Two cannons fire at that first infantry you have, now down
to 2HP. Sidewinder. In the north, take out 2HP infantry with artillery,
attack your infantry in northeast corner you recently got but didn't
move, and a Neotank attacks your medium tank in northwest. A tank takes
out an infantry in northeast. Nearly take out artillery with mech and
infantry. Move down units.

Sensei Day 5: Use infantry now that you got from northeast 3S. In the
south, bomb the medium tank with your bomber. In the north, move your

infantry and artillery. In the east, an infantry is destroyed. Three
total infantry taken down all over.

Sensei Day 6: In the southeast, take out 1HP artillery with infantry,
and medium tank with battle copter. In the northeast, use weakened
battle copter to take out missile and use full HP battle copter to
weaken 4HP A-Air to 1. Take out missile with two infantry in very
northeast, and weaken rocket to 1HP with infantry. Continue to attempt
to take city and base. With your infantry near missile silos, aim a
missile at that hits most units on the western front: A Neotank at
the bottom, a medium tank, three tanks, an APC, 1 infantry, and 1 mech
to deal it a massive 24 damage overall. Use the other one to aim a
little higher, aiming one with top at rocket and hitting 8 units again,
to deal 22 damage. With western artillery and two infantry, take out
two tanks, kill an infantry, and weaken a mech. In the east, the medium
tank came in, but ignore it for now. With your front two bombers,
destroy the seems. Move in your right back bomber 6N 1E to severely

bombers up and attack anything in sight but don't go into missile/A-Air
range. Attack anything in sight, as this is the turning point. Build
medium tank from left base.

Adder Day 7: Attack infantry with cannons. Attack a few units, feel
doomed. Build an infantry.

Sensei Day 8: Copter Command, thought you won't get units. Move up
units but still stay out of range of A-Air/bombers. Blow up eastern
seem. Move everything else up! That, and continue taking properties.

Adder Day 8: Attacks bombers with cannons :P

Sensei Day 9: Send EVERYTHING up to destroy cannons. And the units
near them. You can hit the missile/A-Air, but it won't matter too
much here.

Adder Day 9: Attack bombers. Attack everything else in sight. Feel
doomed.

Sensei Day 10: Finish off all three cannons to win! Victory for Sensei!
Sensei scares away Adder :) .

Mission Briefing: Sonja and Kanbei notices no one at the battlefield
once again but they move onward. Lash notices no one as well. The clash
of Lash and Sonja comes when Sonja arrives. Sonja told Lash that
Sonja's army had moved on, which turns out to be fake intel, getting
even Kanbei and Sensei to agree. Sonja trapped Lash, it turns out.
Artillery and rockets for you, but Lash has a huge army. Both noticing
each other's weaknesses and attacking them, the battle begins.

General Strategy:

1. Always have a unit on the HQ. If your rocket is weakened, run it into forest 
and let 
tank guard it.

2. Attack stronger units first like medium tanks. The others you can match with 
your tanks. 

3. You'll want to have your indirects firing as much as you can, so move them 
whenever they don't hit anything. 

4. Don't advance in the middle till she only has a few units left or looks like 
she has no chance of taking 
your HQ, which should be somewhere 7+ days.

and thanks Olaf..."with some help from Orange Star". Nell tells Kanbei
that Hawke, the last Black Hole new CO, has Green Earth near defeat,
and ask of Blue Moon and Yellow Comet to aid Green Earth. 

Victory! 99 Speed + 76 Power + 100 Technique = 275 Pts. = A-Rank

This concludes the Yellow Comet Campaign, but the hardest has yet to
come.



GREEN EARTH



Drake seems to have a face problem here...even after hearing Allied
victories over Black Hole in western countries, Green Earth is still
half occupied by Black Hole forces under their best commander, Hawke.
Jess comes in and asks if they're counterattacking. Eagle and Drake
are not land masters, so Jess's return from training is much needed
for GE. Eagle doesn't care for "Red"'s help and would rather do it
himself, but Drake notices that with all three fronts covered as them
three, they can take back GE. Choose the northwest mission with Eagle
versus Hawke first.

Mission Briefing: Hawke asks Adder if the fortress is readying, along
with minicannons. Adder says it's true. Hawke also learns that only a
GE air force is coming. Eagle asks all to take out the fortress. A GE
pilot reports that it is no good cause Hawke has too much A-Air. Eagle
learns that Black Hole knew about him coming, and notes that they
could let BH take the factory, or suffer heavy casualties taking it.
The GE pilot decides to go, as he remembers Eagle told him that they
mustn't lose. Another pilot agrees. Aim for the minicannons and
"Let's give them a show of power they won't soon forget!"


Eagle Day 1: Look east. You have eight battle copters, four fighters,
and six bombers. He has six battle copters, four fighters, two cruisers,
four A-Air, and four missiles, as well as eight minicannons. Move middle
two battle copters 5E. Move all other battle copters 6E. Move middle
four bombers 7E. Move the side two 6E. Move top and bottom fighters 8E.
Move next to top fighter 7E 2N, and the next to bottom fighter 7E 2S.

Hawke Day 1: Send front fighters 9W, send front battle copters 6W,
send back fighters and battle copters in a crazy 1N, all the way W
formation. Cruisers move 6W.

Eagle Day 2: Here, the fighters are nearby. Move top fighter
5E and take out the battle copter south of you. Move bottom fighter 4E
and take out the battle copter to the north. Move 2nd to top fighter
2E 1S to attack that fighter, and move the 2nd to bottom fighter 2E
1N to do the same. Move bottom two copters to take out Hawke's copter,
then use the 2nd and 3rd highest copters to take out his northern one.
With your remaining 4 battle copters, surround the four fighters so
they can't get out. Move your non-middle 2 bombers 7E except for the
north one which should move 6E 1N. Move the last two bombers 5E.

Hawke Day 2: Attack battle copters to the left with both fighters
to deal 4 damage each. Fighters, battle copters, and the bombers
move up westward.

Eagle Day 3: Use top and bottom bombers to bomb down both front cannons
from the left. (Northern one 7E, southern one 1S 6E) Finish off both
weakened fighters with same fighters from the right. Move northern
no damaged fighter 5E 1S to attack it. Move your southern fighter 5E
to attack his. Move the now southern bomber 1E. Move the top one 2N 1E,
and the middle two 3E. Move middle two battle copters 5E. Move top battle
copter 4E 1N. Move the left remaining top copter 5E 1N. Move the one
directly right 5E 1S. Move the bottom copter 4E 1N. You have two battle
copters to move. Move the left one 6E and the east one 5E 1N. End.

Hawke Day 3: Cannons hit closest bombers to 7HP. Black Storm, dealing 4
damage this first time. Fighter moves to take out one battle copter and
injure the other. Your battle copters move up, one injuring another
copter. Northern cruiser takes out bomber, southern cruiser takes out
battle copter. Take out the northern cruiser

Eagle Day 4: You now have an air force of (and HPs at):

Battle Copters: 2, 3, 4, 4, 8, 8
Fighters: 6, 6, 6, 7
Bombers: 5, 8, 8, 8, 8

Send top two fighters to take out top fighter, then use one fighter
to attack the bottom fighter. Bomb the northern cruiser with your
8HP bomber, staying out of range. In the south, use two 8HP bombers
to take out the cruiser. Move up remaining fighter to attack the full
health battle copter in the north instead of finishing 1HP on the final
fighter, and use a 4HP copter to weaken that to 1HP. Use your two 8HP
battle copters to finish off the bottom one. Move your other forces
out of missile, A-Air, and cannon range and prepare to advance now
that you have Lightning Strike, but don't actually use it yet.

Hawke Day 4: With fighter, deal 1 damage to battle copter. Send 3HP
cruiser down to take out 3HP battle copter. Move up northern missile.

Eagle Day 5: Move units in this formation:

North: 8HP bomber, 7HP bomber, 8HP battle copter, 4HP battle copter,
3HP battle copter, 7HP fighter, 5HP fighter

South: 8HP bomber, 7HP bomber, 5HP bomber, 6HP battle copter, 2HP
battle copter, 6HP fighter, 6HP fighter

Eagle Day 6+: Prepare to launch your attack in this order in upcoming days:
Take out western A-Air, missiles, then western cannons, then move
to back cannons, take out those, and take out A-Air. Then take out
the cannons near them to win.

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

Hawke has a Black Cannon now, and Hawke seems to be the only one that
takes any allied country seriously. Drake, who is spotted with his
navy at a small southern island, debates whether to take out the Black
Cannon head-on or to seize the HQ. Eagle comes in through a transmitter
and learns of Drake's dilemma, but that Yellow Comet troops are on their
way, led by Kanbei. Take out both Black Cannons here with Kanbei's aid.
Drake and Kanbei together shall take out Hawke, right?


Black Hole units to beware of:

Western side of Lake: Recon, Rocket
Northern side of Lake: 2 Recon, Artillery
Northeast side of Lake: Artillery, 2 Rockets, Recon


Drake Day 1: Move bottom sub 1E 5S and dive to spot one infantry, two
artillery, and two rockets. With northeast battleship, attack the
rocket you spot to the east. Move southern battleship 1S. Move subs
all the way south and dive. Move everything else either south and out
of range (do not venture out of central of lake as you will be sniped
on), or onto reefs. So cruisers should all be on subs, while
battleships are just around lake. Build an infantry in SE base near
Kanbei. End.

Kanbei Day 1: Build two infantry.

Hawke Day 1: Move infantry east to take city, move units south. From
the south, move units north.

Drake Day 2: Move dived subs down. Hawke has no navy. Start sending
battleships into reefs over to cannon. Must be in reef or don't go
into cannon change, except for dived subs. Move battleships down.
Don't worry about air either, he only has a few battle copters. Move
bottom infantry 1N 2E to take base. Make a recon.

Kanbei Day 2: Move both infantry 2N to take two cities. Build two more
infantry.

YC infantry.

Drake Day 4: Move bottom dived sub west. Move sub spotting rocket to
the left on forest 2S. Move lowest battleship 1W 5S. With next two
battleships, take out western rocket. In southeast, move recon 2E 5N
to attack his recon. Move infantry east.

Kanbei Day 4: Move tank up to kill weakened recon. Get missile and fire
at rocket and units nearby, using eastern rocket as leftest target.
Move up infantry, start taking another city.

Hawke Day 4: Attack GE recon, fire missile at YC forces, move forces
south at Kanbei, attack infantry with recon, all other actions unknown.

eastern cannon and deal it 55% damage. Weaken artillery, finish off
eastern rocket with back battleships. Move up recon into forest. Move
infantry east. Move running out of fuel subs to shoal of GE SE island.

Kanbei Day 5: Build tank from western base. Weaken recon with tank.
Finish capturing city. Build recon from eastern base.

with 3HP recon. Watch eastern cannon get destroyed.

Drake Day 6: Destroy eastern cannon with battleship. Heal two dived
subs at bottom with APC. Move down all fuel-dying dived subs down
except for top one which moves north. Can't fire with no subs with
top battleships. Move 4HP recon in the east to 1E of attacking
battleship, 2E of evil rocket. Move fueled dived sub up.

Kanbei Day 6: With two tanks, kill and weaken recon. Bring up other
recon. Start capturing another city.

Hawke Day 6: Destroy a YC infantry, weaken a GE infantry.

Drake Day 7: Move bottom battleship 4S 1E into reef. Fuel two more
dying dived subs in bottom. Fuel dying sub in north. Keep moving that
one oldest fueled dived sub north. Take out one artillery and weaken
the other with battleships. Move down top battleship but keep out of
cannon/artillery range. Build rocket from NE base from bottom.

Kanbei Day 7: Combine 1+1=2HP infantry. Finish capturing city. Take out
two recon with two tank. Build tank in eastern base.

Hawke Day 7: Move down recon, surprise Kanbei with medium tank attacking
tank, A-Air to surround it. Move random other land units.

Drake Day 8: Move bottom battleship 6W. Move subs for vision. Take out
recon with one battleship. Move other two south but out of range of
artillery fire. Move rocket east onto YC HQ.

Kanbei Day 8: Look at newly built Hawke Neotank. Retreat all you can
into forest or south. Build nothing.

Hawke Day 8: Continue taking south. Recon takes out GE infantry.
Neotank takes out tank. A-Air takes out GE infantry, moving it on
eastern YC base.

Drake Day 9: Attack western cannon with southern battleship. Move

units. Continue taking props, advancing at Kanbei with Neotanks and
taking out rocket on YC HQ. Continue making useless units.

Drake Day 12: Kill the western cannon with your battleship to win!


End:

Hawke seems to not care too much about the Black Cannons, but suggests
a retreat. Drake thanks Kanbei for the reinforcements, although Kanbei
really didn't matter on this mission except for some power. Kanbei and
Drake agree to work together when they storm Black Hole.

Victory! 100 Speed + 22 Power + 100 Technique = 222 Pts. = B-Rank

Lash tells Hawke that Flak wants to talk to him about launching an
attack at a volcano, with Hawke annoyingly finishing all of Flak's
comments about it being dangerous and it's why they're doing it.
The new volcano terrain disrupts air currents. Lava pours out as well.
Flak questions Hawke to save himself as the mission begins with "The
lava's going to make little people pancakes! Tee hee hee!" Maybe like
Lash herself? :P Anyway, go on into the mission. Green Earth notices
they can't go air with the volcano nearby, so Jess takes the ground

the final battle against GE, which he says will win. GE soidier tells
Drake of the victory, but Drake won somehow, Drake says. Eagle sent his
air force, but it seems he sent it too late. Drake is modest and Eagle
gives him credit anyway. "Blow me down...We finally won."

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts. = S-Rank!

"Attack the Black Hole citadel!" Here is the first mission you fight
Sturm in. Don't spell Strum, please...unless you think it's funny, haha.
Sturm is informed by his lieutenant Allied force movements into Black
Hole itself. Flak and Adder argue over taking command, but Sturm
insists on taking command himself. "You wretches report to the missile
platform and assist Lash." They leave, and Sturm is very disappointed
with their losses. "When this is finished, I will make...adjustments."

Max tells Sami that this is Sturm's citadel, and Sami says that they
pillaged everything from allied countries and have them here. Jess
agrees to that, and Andy argues to get back their money here. Nell
thinks it got moved. Eagle and Olaf ask why, and Grit thinks the same
as Nell. Kanbei comes and asks for a general assault to take out the
cannons. Sonja says you must take out the 3 Black Cannons. They will
run if you take them out. Sensei agrees, and then they'd find out if
that was Sturm's HQ. "That's brilliant, Commander Sonja!" - Colin.
Indirect fire is useful here, and using decoys, as well as what COs
you use.

I suggest a combo of Andy, Grit, and Jess. OS gets 12 properties, while
BM and GE get 10. Don't use YC.

"CO Select: The final conflict! Stop the enemy's missile from
launching!" Sturm asks Lash how long it will take to build the missiles.
Lash seems to have a weird mind and picks 3 or 40. Sturm demands it be
done in 30 days. A Deathray is invented by Lash as well, which fires on
enemy units every 7 days 5 damage on ALL allied troops in the path of the
ray. Choose Colin, Eagle, and then Max, to have Colin in the middle,
Eagle in the west, and Max in the east. The missile platform is spotted
by Andy. "Look at what I've found!" "You...you're Sturm!" "And you're the
little girl who likes playing with soldiers." Sturm notices Sonja
again and acknowledges to Nell that they will see their world destroyed
by his missiles. Allied forces and Black Hole forces finally meet in the
final battle, and Colin is informed of a giant laser blocking the platform.
Jess says to weaken his defenses, attack the platform, and stop the
launch. Note that you actually have a 30-day limit...

General Strategy:

Make six infantry for each side to capture cities. Make bombers and
fighters for everyone that will charge towards the Deathray after Day
14's Deathray attack. ONLY build those until the last day when you should
build technique. Do not need to defend base, go for Deathray as Sturm
isn't fast enough anyway. Eagle and Max should primarily defend their
bases, but Colin's bombers should sweep for the Deathray by Day 19 and win.

An argument arises after the missile platform is inoperable, and Sturm says
he will kill everyone there, including himself. Hawke betrays Sturm with
Black Storm, and self-proclaims himself commander-in-chief of the Black
Hole Army. Hawke wanted to test his power, it seems. Hawke doesn't really
care about anything but to get himself something, but Eagle is furious at
Hawke's invasion of Green Earth and refuses to let him go. Drake and Colin
try to convince that the Allied forces are too weak right now to do anything.
The Black Hole forces under new commander Hawke retreats. Andy says that
what've been done to Macro Land was unforgiveable but killing Sturm saved 
them. 
The Allied forces will have to be prepared again if Black Hole invades
again. But for now, Andy asks for a party and you've won the war-ridden
campaign! "He can keep trying, but he will never beat us!" - Max

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 36 Power + 93 Technique = 229 Pts. = B-Rank

War World Paper: War is Over! Macro Land is free, but peace is fragile
and can be broken again...and the staff credits roll. Good job!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hard Campaign
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hard Campaign is hard. Abbreviated HC, some may confuse it with "Hell
Campaign". Are you up to the challenge? Hard Campaign can be unlocked by
beating Normal Campaign once. Go into Hachi's Battle Maps to find Advance
Campaign for 1000 coins. Buy it and press select when you reach the Campaign
section and Hard Campaign shows up. Most of these missions are much harder
than their Normal Campaign counterparts, need a lot more strategy, and in many
cases, have more units and even sometimes have all-different maps. Getting
S-ranks on these missions are is harder, and even good players will have
trouble even beating some missions.

You'll be happy to know that like in Advance Wars, you get more points towards
Battle Maps for your efforts. However, unlike Advance Wars, you can't lose
every single unit and still get full technique points. Speed is a smaller
factor than its Advance Wars counterpart, but it's still much harder.

With Hard Campaign's rougher battles, you must know how to use your COs 
better. 
Even with this FAQ, you will need to come up with your own strategies many, if
not most of the time, due to the randomness of the AI, and you'll have to make
up from what you have.


The objective of this Hard Campaign Mode Guide is to help you to get
past the scenario you're stuck on, but still keep some replay value so
you don't completely look at a guide to beat the game.



ORANGE STAR



Prologue
--------

Sturm is back in Macro Land.

Hawke and Sturm ramble onward on taking Macro Land and Wars World.
Cosmo Land was taken in the past, but this time it's different.

Andy, Sami, and Max (in that order) talk about Black Hole's return
Andy and Max argue over the fact that Wars World has more than one
continent, and that Macro Land is not on the same continent. The other
armies have also spotted Black Hole forces in their country. Andy seems
to like this war to bring the four countries together. Andy runs to
the first campaign battle, which is a beefed up version of Border
Skirmish on NC. Sami and Nell talk about the upcoming battle and that
Sami will handle it. Flak agrees to send out his tanks against you.

Four new missions open up! 4 Red difficulty missions await you. Choose
the southwestern one with Andy.



Mission 4: Sea for All
-----------------------
Andy vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: ****

Hawke challenges Andy to a battle in western Orange Star where Black
Hole forces have taken a strong position and Andy accepts. Hawke
introduces himself to Andy and challenges him. "That's right. I hope
you'd show me your tactical prowess." Hawke feels that Andy is the best
for a challenge. Hawke asks Andy to learn from the battle. The rules
are that both sides will only use aerial and naval units. If Andy wins,
Hawke gives the territory back to Orange Star. If not, Hawke keeps the
territory.

Scout: The map is shaped with both sides' symbols, with their
islands representing each country. You control the southwest portion of
the map, Hawke controls the northeast. The HQs can't be captured as no
one has any base. Both of you have three airports and two ports. You'll
want to gain aerial advantage early, as whoever controls the air will
win, as only cruisers from below can do anything to air, and air can fly
anywhere. Hawke does have one more city, though...

copter 3E to finish it off. Move top 4HP fighter 1E 3S. Move bottom

copter 7N. Move NW fighter 5E to take out 5HP fighter. You win!

End:

"How was THAT, Hawke?!?" Hawke leaves with the deal, and Andy gets
excited and asks for Nell. Nell doesn't really care and asks what
Andy is doing, as Black Hole forces are where Nell are in doves.
"They've advanced beyond the front you were supposed to be holding!"
Andy is ordered to go back, as it was a trap. "If the continent falls,
those islands mean nothing!!!" Andy orders his troops back to the
mainland. "That creep! Next time I see him, there'll be trouble!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 87 Technique = 287 = S-Rank



Mission 6: Mountain Ops
-----------------------
Sami vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: ****

Mission Briefing: "Cross the mountains and destroy Lash's laboratory!" The
Black Hole HQ is located in the mountains so that Lash's laboratory is shut
down as she is making yet another invention. There are missile silos and
intel to be taken there. Lash is told that OS forces are arriving to
take her down. Lash tells her advisor to engage them while she takes
care of her invention. "Once this is finished, I'll bathe all of Orange
Star in a sea of fire..." Lash reluctantly accepts to battle.

Sami Day 1: Build an APC from eastern base, infantry from western base.

Lash Day 1: Build three infantry.

Sami Day 2: Move infantry 3N, move APC 3N, and build two infantry.

Lash Day 2: Move infantry towards you. Build two infantry and APC.

Sami Day 3: Move NW infantry 1W 2N to take city. Move eastern base infantry
3N into APC and move APC 5N 2E, dropping to the north. Move other infantry
3N. Make infantry from left base and mech from right base.

Lash Day 3: Move infantry and APC down. Make a recon.

Sami Day 6+: From here on, you'll want to grab two more bases and attack with
pure infantry/mech, plus some tank numbers. Take some southern cities and move
to the east to blast the Black Cannon and the BH forces in the way to shreds.
Best way to blow up the Black Cannon is by afar with rockets, and some tanks
and mechs to defend them. Win in 27 days.

End:

Victory! 95 Speed + 100 Power + 93 Technique = 288 S-Rank



Mission 7: Test of Time
-----------------------
Andy vs. Flak
Red Difficulty: *****

General Strategy: On this map, you'll want to move up your units, using the red 
 
city and the square 1NW of it as defensive formations. Use recon and 
mechs/infantry for vision.Swipe the battleship and then the medium tanks, then 
 
march towards the lab anddestroy the hidden rocket and capture the lab. Ignore 
 
the northern two hidden artillery, it'll slow you down and hurt you.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 99 Technique = 299 S-Rank!



Mission 8: Liberation
---------------------
OS CO vs. Flak
Red Difficulty: ********

Mission Briefing: Flak is surprised by the sight of Adder, who was
supposed to invade Yellow Comet. With his wordplay, he angers Flak.
Here is a factory and base that is the center of the BH war on OS. If
you can take this out, victory on BH will be a reality, at least in
OS, for now. You have the base advantage here.

General Strategy: Choose Max. You'll want to build infantry to seize the two 
neutral bases and eventually, the airport near you. Move your tanks north and 
blockade the factory and advance to the base at the seem. Grab it and build 
from it, taking the seem down in 13 days. The enemy forces from the west will 
be too big to fight, but you'll still win by destroying the seem.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 58 Power + 70 Technique = 228 B-Rank

You have completed the Orange Star Campaign!



BLUE MOON



Mission 9: Reclamation
-----------------------
Colin vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: *****

Mission Briefing: Olaf hears about the Black Hole invasion on the
northern frontier, the border with Orange Star. Colin volunteers to
go, while Grit doesn't seem to care as much, just like in the past
war. Grit acknowledges that Colin is now a full-fledged CO, and Olaf
lets him. Grit gives him a little advice. Lash is informed that
Colin leads the Blue Moon army, though "I wanted the bearded
geezer, or at least the scarecrow", pointing to Olaf and Grit. She
orders a retreat because Colin will be boring, but decides to
attack anyway.

Predeployed Units:

BM: None

BH: 1 Recon, 1 Tank, 1 A-Air, 1 Tank, 1 Medium Tank, 1 Artillery, 1 Rocket


Colin Day 1: Make three infantry.

Lash Day 1: Fire new laser cannon, move units east. Make two infantry.

Colin Day 2: Move northern infantry 2W, other two 3S. Make an APC from SW
base, infantry from other two.

Lash Day 2: Fire at nothing, move units east. Move both infantry, build two
infantry.

Colin Day 3: Move bottom two infantry 3S. Move western infantry 2E.

Lash Day 3: Move units eastward.

Colin Day 4: Move bottom two infantry 1SW to start taking cities. Move APC
1W. Build a tank from SW base.

Lash Day 4: Attack infantry with recon.

Colin Day 5: Move injured infantry 3S. Move tank 2N 3W to attack recon.
Finish taking cities. Move SE infantry 3W into APC. Build tank from SW base.

Lash Day 5: Attack nothing with laser cannon, injure APC and infantry.

Colin Day 6+: Grab the southern airport and start sending units westward out
of laser cannon range. Have three tanks to guide your advance to that neutral
middle base. Destroy the artillery when you get to it, and capture the neutral
base. Make two medium tanks and move them west, ready to slam the laser cannon
together. Have two A-Air to swipe her air and infantry. Also start taking the
neutral base a bit farther from you. On Day 13, destroy laser cannon with
two medium tanks to 1HP, then destroy it with an infantry. Keep adding tanks
and medium tanks and infantry and sweep to the west. Don't let the infantry 
take 
too many of the missile silos or the left neutral base, but Lash will have the
southern base pumping units. Add a rocket and two A-Air to fight off Lash in
those desperate situations, as well as some reinforced infantry from HQ bases.
Once you reach the HQ area, you will find that the area is surrounded by
some mountains for defensive protection. Note that this also works the other
way around, as no units from the outside can get in. Use this to your 
advantage 
when you storm it by Day 27. Complete by Day 31 with HQ capture.

End:

Lash retreats. Colin shyly declares victory. "This is just the beginning!"

Victory! 99 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 299 S-Rank


Mission 10: Tanks!!!
-----------------------
Grit vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: ****

Mission Briefing: Grit wakes up to find an angry Olaf asking him to
seize a victory over the Black Hole forces in the south because it
was his duty to defend the mountains. Grit seems to take it lightly
as always but still goes before Olaf can say more. Grit spots the
vast number of medium tanks even in Fog of War and decides not to
fight them head on. Adder says that he went to offer a proposition
to Grit, that they want Grit to join the Black Hole Army. Adder
seems to say Grit's feelings about protecting Blue Moon, which
wasn't much, but Grit doesn't respond. Grit agrees that Adder is
correct, but that Adder has no call to treat the civilians and
people in Blue Moon as they pleased. Adder had destroyed whole
cities, and Grit finds Adder his #1 enemy.

Predeployed Units:

BM: 4 Mechs, 4 Recon, 2 Artillery, 4 Rockets

BH: 5+ Medium Tanks, 2+ Neotanks

General Strategy: Your primary objective here is to bring up rockets to the 
west.  
Adder's forces come in more so in the north than south, so strike the north 
first.  
Missile silos will help clear those pesky Neotanks. Kill the mechs when they 
come  
to you. By the 6th day, move your rockets north to eliminate the few remaining 
 
ones on Day 7.

End:

"This ain't for show."

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 Pts S-Rank!



Mission 11: Toy Box
-------------------
Olaf vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: ???

Predeployed Units:

BM: Mech, APC, Tank

BH: Recon, Tank, Medium Tank, Artillery, Rocket

General Strategy: From the right side, grab that neutral base to the west and 
the cities nearby. Take down the two pipeline seems at the bottom with 
artillery,  
then march lots of infantry over tomow down units with artillery help and gain 
 
the lab city, which is the SW one on a small 1-square island that links to 
other  
parts with two bridges, at around the same area as the NC version. In the 
north,  
sweep through with tanks and indirects. Take the western neutral base (which is 
 
under BH control) by Day 18, the lab by Day 19, the SW and W base by Day 21,
and the mission by Day 23. 

End:

"I'll continue fighting until my country is restored!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 89 Technique = 289 Pts S-Rank!



Mission 12: Two-Week Test
-------------------------
Colin vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: ???

Predeployed Units:

BM: 2 Tank, Rocket

BH: 2 Infantry, 2 Mech, 2 Recon, Tank, A-Air, 2 Medium Tank, Battleship

General Strategy: Take the 3 bases and cities near you, and move out of your 
isolated area to the cities west of the two mountains. Avoid indirect range 
at all possible and defend there. Slowly retreat back on week two when you 
will get overwhelmed. Add tanks and indirects, as well as infantry and A-Air, 
to halt Lash's threat. The battleship will do nothing to you.

End:

"I'll continue to do my best!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 97 Power + 59 Technique = 256 A-Rank



Mission 13: T-Minus 15
----------------------
Olaf vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: ???

General Strategy: On this mission, Andy should leave one bomber in the north 
to wipe out everything on the western front, even the missile and artillery by 
 
the end with a destroyed seem. Andy should break open the seems to the other 
two fronts, and leave much of his aerial force bombarded Black Hole positions 
on the southern front until Flak falls on Day 13. Meanwhile, Olaf should fly 
an A-Air as well to the southern front and make a battle copter and some 
bombers to eliminate the south, while keeping an eye on firing shots from 
indirect units onto those Neotanks, with direct support. Take properties and 
finish by Day 15.

End:

"I won! That is, we won!"

Victory! 92 Speed + 74 Power + 90 Technique = 256 Pts A-Rank



Mission 14: Nature Walk
-----------------------
Grit vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: ********

BM: Two Infantry, Mech, 2 Recon, 4 Tank, 2 APC, 4 Artillery, 2 Rocket, A-Air,
2 Medium Tank

BH: ??? (more units than you can count)

General Strategic Checklist:

1. Don't be stupid. Hiding all your units in the forest means they can never
fire on you first unless they find you first, and that takes two units.

2. Your indirects are powerful. Keep them alive.

3. Remember, sneaking one unit to the HQ gives you an easy victory.

Grit Day 1: Hide ALL your units in forest after taking out the front tank and
recon. Load infantry into APCs so it will work.

Lash Day 1: Move down all units but infantry which move up.

Grit Day 2: Take out a Neotank, artillery, and tank with indirects. Move up
everything up without being next to any one unit and in forest.

Lash Day 2: Move down units and apparently is unable to destroy anything.

Grit Day 3: Destroy A-Air, recon, and 2 tanks with indirects and direct help.
Move up units through forest as always, and avoid any contact.

Lash Day 3: PRIME TACTICS. Move down units. Start taking two of your cities 
with 
infantry.

Grit Day 4: Move all units either out of enemy sight (north) or up through 
forests 
(south). As usual, never leave a forest.

Lash Day 4: Destroy found mech, weaken APC.

Grit Day 5: Weaken tank, medium tank, A-Air, and destroy tank with indirets,
then destroy the medium tank with a rocket. Finish off tank and A-Air with any
tank for both, so one tank will get hit by a Black Cannon, but at least your
rocket doesn't take damage. Move remaining units up through forest.

Lash Day 5: Two Black Cannons blast tank. Finish taking 2 cities, start taking
4 other ones.

Grit Day 6: Move all units up but in forest and out of enemy sight.

Lash Day 6: Finish taking 4 cities, move units north.

Grit Day 7: Super Snipe. Weaken eastern Black Cannon with eastern rocket to 
17HP. 
Destroy artillery with artillery. Destroy infantry with rocket. Move units 
north 
and start sneaking a recon up towards HQ from the west.

Lash Day 7: Destroy something.

Grit Day 8: Sneak recon towards HQ. Move units north and destroy a rocket with
a medium tank, weakening a Neotank with a medium tank out of Black Cannon 
range. 

Lash Day 8: PRIME TACTICS. Destroy a tank and weaken medium tank with Neotank.
Start taking two BM cities.

Grit Day 9: Sneak recon towards HQ, through forest. Finish off Neotank with
two medium tanks. Move units north but out of sight and in forest.

Lash Day 9: Destroy tank, finish taking two cities.

Grit Day 10: Snipe Attack. Destroy EVERYTHING YOU CAN. Go into enemy sight 
even. 
Move recon onto HQ and attack the rocket. You win! "I hope they don't come any
tougher 'n that."

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Pts = 300 S-Rank!



Mission 15: Neotanks!?
----------------------
BM CO (Olaf) vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: ???

BM: 2 Tank

BH: Mech, Tank, Artillery, 4 Battle Copter, Medium Tank, Neotank, Rocket


Olaf Day 1: Move tanks 6E. Build three infantry.

Lash Day 1: Move swarmed units south except for the three lab units.

Olaf Day 2: Move western tank 1N, eastern tank 1W. Move western two infantry
3N, eastern one 3E.

Lash Day 2: Move massive force south, start taking cities in NW.

Olaf Day 3: Move western infantry 2W 1N and fire missile on 4 battle copters,
artillery, and mech. Do the same with northern infantry 3N. Build A-Air from
eastern base, infantry from northern base. Move eastern infantry 3E to take
city. Move tanks 1N.

Lash Day 3: Finish taking two properties. Move up battle copters, two to 
attack 
infantry, one to attack tank.

Olaf Day 4: Move western infantry 3N towards airport. Move SW infantry 3W. 
Move 
north-central infantry 1NW to fire a missile on mech, artillery, and tank.
Finish taking city. Move tanks 2E 3N (north) and 1E 5N (south). Move A-Air 3NE
to destroy battle copter. Build three infantry.

Lash Day 4: Destroy infantry with three battle copters, move units.

Olaf Day 5+: Fire last three missiles on three units at lab. Move all infantry
eastward to take those missile silos and infantry, then move on to the neutral 
base. 
Destroy weakened tank, mech, and artillery with both tanks. Move A-Air 
northwest to 
rid battle copters. Speed things up with an APC. Move both tanks up to rid the
weakened lab units quickly, taking a little damage on the way. Add an A-Air
to the west against copters and A-Air/recon. Start taking neutral base and 
cities 
nearby, then move in some newly built medium tanks and tanks from new base to
kill her units near the lab. The left can be held with one A-Air. Start 
capturing 
the lab ASAP. Hold the bridge to win! 

End:

"With this new weapon, no one's a match for us!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 93 Technique = 293 S-Rank



Mission 16: Factory Blues
-------------------------
BM CO (Grit) + OS CO (Max) vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: *******

OS: 3 Mech, A-Air, Tank, APC, Artillery, Rocket, Medium Tank

BM: None

BH: 2 Recon, Tank, 2 Artillery, 2 A-Air, Neotank, 3 Battle Copter

General Strategy: Here is a nasty predeployed addition from NC, and the factory 
 
boasts stronger units too. You'll want to give Max both bases and the cities 
in 
the left. You'll also want to keep a defensive wall, meaning that units can't
just sneak around your defensive positions.

General Strategy Day 1: Build two infantry for Grit (bottom two bases), while 
Max goes to capture both bases and two cities. Max should move every unit to 
the 
middle except for the A-Airs which should get moved up.

General Strategy Day 2: Attack the A-Air with Max's units but leave artillery
and rocket of Max out of recon range. Same build as last time.

General Strategy Day 3: Have Grit build an artillery and infantry, and keep
capturing properties. Use Max's units to own the recon, anti-air, and two of
the battle copters that get to you (A-Air positioning = awesome). Luring and
waiting for the enemy is key on this mission.

General Strategy Day 4: Have Grit build artillery from now on...they will 
serve 
as backup and the final assault. Max should build an infantry, and destroy the
battle copter. Move your units in position for the BH assault.

General Strategy Day 5: Counterattack with what you have, and destroy the BH
Neotank in the west. Keep luring and waiting for them, Grit's artillery trap
in the back should be powerful.

General Strategy Day 6: Advance with direct units and use Grit's artillery
whenever possible. Otherwise, move it up. Keep building artillery with Grit,
and infantry with Max. You shouldn't even have lost more than one unit that is
Grit's...Max should take the damage so you don't lose much technique.

General Strategy Day 7: Keep getting cities with Max's and Grit's infantry,
and build the same order. Keep advancing.

General Strategy Day 8: Black Hole is weakened now. Use Max's infantry as bait
as you reach the factory, while Max's tanks and Grit's artillery take care of
the opposition.

General Strategy 9-11: Grit is now the main attacker, and Max is bait. Use the
artillery to destroy all in front of the factory, and block it. Remember to
add in an A-Air or two so that BH can't put up air domination against you.

General Strategy Day 12-18: Block the factory gates, build tanks and infantry
for Max, focus your main Grit attack to the LEFT of the factory, clear
everything, and fire away at the seem. Orange Star forces should attack to the
right of the factory to keep Lash occupied. Victory is yours if you watch out
for the left airport area, which Max should take with Grit's support.


End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 98 Power + 95 Technique = 293 S-Rank



YELLOW COMET



Mission 17: Silo Scramble
-------------------------
Kanbei vs. Flak
Red Difficulty: ****

Amazingly nearly as easy as its predecessor, this forces you to play more to 
the sides 
rather than the center. There are no bases in the middle, but now they are on 
islands that 
are actually in a nice position for you. Keep pumping infantry from all bases 
for most of 
the battle, and add in tanks and medium tanks to charge forward. Beat BH to the 
middle to 
fire off the silos, and attack from the north and the west to defeat Flak by 
Day 19. 
Though beating it by Day 20 like I did is fine too, you'll lose a few speed 
points and 
prevent you from taking that 300. "Raise your voices in victory!"

Victory! 97 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 297 S-Rank



Mission 18: Sensei's Return
---------------------------
Sensei vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: *****

YC: 2 Infantry

BH: 2 Cruiser, a lot of other units

General Strategy: This is basically an enlarged version of the NC map. 
There's an extra airport, and more room to manuever with. However, there are 
two cruisers lurking around, and you'll use battle copters to oust them in 
pure numbers. As they are also your offensive force, you should land infantry 
in the eastern peninsula and inch up with battle copter help. Watch out for 
missiles in the northeast. Your key in the land war in the south, is to grab 
the neutral base, arm up a tank or two, as well as artillery, and advance 
upward. Though those indirects and infantry hiding in the forest on the 
western front will stall you, those battle copters will help again. Remember 
to destroy those minicannons, too. The last unit is usually found hidden next 
to the HQ or the northeastern corner of the map. Beat this in some 22 days. 
Not very hard.

End:

"Ho ho! Guess that's that."

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 89 Technique = 289 S-Rank



Mission 19: Show Stopper
------------------------
Sonja vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: *******

General Strategy: Unlike some other missions, this hasn't changed that much
from its NC counterpart. Sure, there's more battle copters and bombers, but
with a defensive wall and cheap units built (you should never build anything
worth more than an A-Air on most maps), you should keep them at bay. Use tanks
for anything that you can't reach, artillery to kill every land unit, two
A-Airs to wipe out any sort of air, and infantry for a defensive boundary.
Those early units will easily wipe out his early aerial and land forces, which
leaves the small navies he has on both fronts. Use rockets to smash those
minicannons from a distance. Just keep both eyes on the neutral bases and 
don't let Addere take them...you shall take control. Shift your forces westward 
 
by Day 12 and capture both ports, building subs to crash his sub-battleship 
navy  
on both fronts with help from indirects. Smash the minicannons with medium 
tanks and  
rockets, add an A-Air against his random battle copter encounters, and take
the southwest city again, which is the lab city. Beat this in 26 days!

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 92 Technique = 292 S-Rank



Mission 20: A Mirror Darkly
---------------------------
Sonja vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: *****

General Strategic Checklist:

1. Always have a unit on the HQ, preferably your medium tank. If your rocket is 
 
weakened, run it into forest and let medium tank guard it.

2. Attack stronger units first like medium tanks and Neotanks. The others you
can match with your medium tanks.

3. You'll want to have your indirects firing as much as you can, so move them
whenever they don't hit anything.

4. Don't advance in the middle till she only has a few units left or looks 
like 
she has no chance of taking your HQ, which should be somewhere 7+ days.

5. Use mechs for vision on mountains that aren't adjacent to fire, unless you
really need it. This is so you don't lose technique points.

Beat this in 11 days or less!

End:

Victory! 93 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 293 S-Rank



Mission 21: Foul Play
---------------------
Sensei vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: *******

General Strategy: Don't get fooled by the two-front war...there is only one. 
You 
want your air force to reach your home base ASAP to save it, which means your 
entire air force except for a bomber should be blowing through the seems. 
However, since you can't send everything at once, you can destroy some southern 
 
units while you wait. In the north, don't even try defending at the forests. It 
 
won't work. Instead, use artillery and medium tanks that you build to attack 
the  
seems...maybe even an infantry. In any case, after the arrival of the bombers 
it's  
really easy, and your Super CO Power gives you an edge in the northeast as you 
 
take over a few areas with those mechs. Use those bombers to take out the 
minicannons after those units are cleared. Do so in 11 days.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 S-Rank



Mission 22: Sea of Hope
-----------------------
YC CO (Sonja) + OS CO (Sami) vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: ???

I actually beat this mission faster on HC than on NC, due to predeployed
units. For Sami, attack the strongest units you can, as you don't need to kill
anything till the Neos come. Make sure that the bombers are baited to attack
yellow infantry and APCs at the island with the airport and port. Build a tank
in the right base and some infantry for first two days to take props and 
defend 
your island, but afterwards, build all bombers. Use your cruiser to destroy
all subs and bombers except for the northern sub, and have Sami's aid along
with your bombers to smash the battleships. Your battleship will be destroyed
eventually, but you'll take out enough units. Grab the northern neutral 
airport 
and lure an A-Air with a T-Copter, then smash them with your bombers, out of
missile range. If you can stay out, you will win. Just finish everything else
off with reinforced bombers by Day 16 (Day 15 if luck goes well).

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 95 Technique = 295 S-Rank



Mission 23: Duty & Honor
------------------------
Kanbei vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: *****

General Strategy: On HC, this mission still looks kinda bland, don't you 
think? Anyway, this mission has gotten trickier, but the tactic remains the 
same. Speed isn't on your side, so you'll want to win in 17 days. The trick 
is to take out the laser cannons with rocket range, and possibly mechs to 
finish  
them off. Move those tanks as far as you can. Adder's infantry and mechs will 
start capturing your cities on Day 5, and finish taking them on Day 11 if 
you're not careful. Utilize those indirect units and the bridge to your 
advantage...stay out of BH indirect range, and use your tanks and Super Power 
to  
mow through them when the time comes and you shouldn't really even lose many 
units.  
Remember to join units if the tanks get weakened...they are your major 
offensive 
weapon. Decimate those forces at the bridge, and then, after you've had the
city situation under control, pull back some tanks to take care of that final
Black Hole hold in the south-central portion of the map while also crushing
those rockets with rapid-moving tanks. So, take out laser cannons in days 4 
and 8, smash their forces from the back then march through and stop BH from 
taking your final city on Day 11. Advance to the south and win by Day 17. 
Tanks are your major offensive weapon...remember to join units if they get 
weakened...piece of cake.

End:

"No enemy can stand before Kanbei!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 S-Rank



Mission 24: The Hunt's End
--------------------------
YC CO (Kanbei) + OS CO (Max) vs. Adder
Red Difficulty: *******


Predeployed Units: 

OS: 2 Infantry

YC: 1 Infantry, 1 Recon, 1 APC, 1 Tank, 1 A-Air

BH: 2 Mechs, 1 APC, 1 Recon, 3 Tanks, 2 Artillery, 3 Rockets, 2 Missiles,
1 Medium Tank, 1 Neotank, 1 Submarine, 1 Cruiser


General Strategy: Final mission of Yellow Comet...and this won't be easy. Your 
 
primarily battle front doesn't even take place on land. As your objective is to 
 
take out the seem, Max is the perfect one. With Max, you'll want to have 
another  
infantry built, to take the three properties on your island, then grab the 
airport and the two cities near it ASAP. With it, use it to build a bomber when 
 
you have the money, then a fighter to seize the air advantage, and then as many 
 
bombers as you can make. Use these to destroy the four cannons in the middle, 
as well as all naval units and any A-Airs that come by. With all this, you 
should be easily able to prepare a bomber force of 2~4 to unleash an offensive 
 
to hit the cannon in  front of the seem and then destroy it. You might lose a 
bomber in the process, but so what? Technique won't be lost. For Kanbei, 
you'll 
want a national force of just about everything. First, put in three artillery 
in  
addition to a few infantry to take land, but your primary offensive force to 
strike those indirects are tanks. And medium tanks. Use a lot of those, and 
keep  
one or two A-Airs around. You'll also want to put in a sub to lure those naval 
 
units, and possibly kill a few with artillery backing. In any case, this 
mission  
should be easy...just watch out on power points and make sure to kill a lot of 
 
units in one go.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 71 Power + 100 Technique = 271 A-Rank



GREEN EARTH



Mission 25: Sinking Feeling
---------------------------
Jess vs. Lash
Red Difficulty: *********

Now in command of a shiny new navy and Neotanks, Lash has made the 17-day 
limit 
rougher. However, as long as you pay more attention to keeping your initial
predeployed forces alive to lure aircraft to destroy, and keep on churning in
aircraft, you will be able to sink the battleships fast enough. Remember to
bring a lander to capture those northwest island properties, including the lab
city that has stayed there. You'll want a cruiser to sink those subs...the
two battleships you will build will be enough to take out those rockets on the
side. On land, be in a defensive format with medium tanks in front and 
artillery 
plus rockets just behind for protection for the initial assault, then flank 
and 
take them out. Do not lose more than 6 units for full technique. Also remember
to keep two A-Air at the top of the continental region to keep those damned
bombers away. Building artillery makes things much easier...battleships,
artillery, and your rocket will burn those ships in no time, but only if you
take the two bases. Build units at the end so you don't lose technique.

End:

Victory! 98 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 298 S-Rank



Mission 26: Sea Fortress
------------------------
Eagle vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *****


Predeployed Units:

GE: 10 Battle Copters, 4 Fighters, 8 Bombers, 2 Cruisers, 2 Battleships

BH: 2 Artillery, 8 A-Airs, 4 Missiles, 2 Neotanks, 10 Battle Copters,
2 Fighters, 2 Submarines, 4 Cruisers


This HC mission has been flipped from horizontal to vertical, and you'll have
to hit the cannons first again. However, there's more of everything here, for
both sides, but to your greater disadvantage. On Day 1, move everything as far
up as you can north, and then on the same day Hawke will run into your trap.
Use fighters against fighters, cruisers and battle copters on battle copters
(to weaken battle copters and kill two of them) on Day 2. Hawke then uses his
Super CO Power. Prepare a formation outside submarine-cruiser range on Day 3
for the assault on Day 4, in which you will use your Super CO Power. Have
bombers in front, followed by battle copters and then fighters. Destroy the
front four minicannons and with Super CO Power, weaken the front two minis
on the island. Then pull back and combine two 5+5 HP minis. By now, 4 minis
are destroyed, 2 are weakened (Day 4 and 5). On Day 5, aim your bombers ready
to aim at the final minicannons. Kill the front ones, then the back ones.
Victory is yours. Sneaky. Easy. Just don't lose more than 2 units. Win in 6
days.

End:

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 300 S-Rank



Mission 27: Drake's Dilemma
---------------------------
Drake + Kanbei vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *****

Mission Briefing: Drake is swept up in Hawke's assault. Will he survive? 
Hawke understands that "it's too early to relax. Much could happen before 
they are annihilated."


Mission Terms: Your objective is to destroy the 2 Black Cannons. 


Predeployed Units:

GE: 1 Lander, 5 Submarines, 4 Cruisers, 4 Battleships

YC: None

BH: Too many to count (especially rockets)


Black Hole Strats: Hawke doesn't really go on the offensive anywhere except
against Kanbei...his large land force is eventually directed at Kanbei.


General Strategy: Use all battleships, cruisers, and subs to attack units 
around the sea except have one sub and two battleships move down to take out
the Black Cannons. You can beat it in as fast as 8 Days, but you won't have
enough power. The lander should carry a Medium Tank, Neotank, or Rocket to 
take out the cannons, as the naval units should clear the sea shores for 
power. Win in nine days...use Kanbei and Drake's built forces (tanks mainly) 
in the east to deal as much power damage as you can get the power points.


End:

"That was some rough sailing!"

Victory! 100 Speed + 40 Power + 100 Technique = 240 B-Rank



Mission 28: Rain of Fire
------------------------
Jess vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *******

The volcano returns! HC brings you a small predeployed force to face Hawke's
mighty huge force. Unlike last time, your main focus of attack should be from
the north, as the south will take longer to dislodge with all the mechs in 
your 
way early. Grab the northern bases ASAP, as well as killing those mechs that
are up in the mountains. Use mostly tanks, adding in a couple of medium tanks.
Build 4 infantry and one APC the first two days and watch for the volcano 
pattern, which is the EXACT reverse of the NC one. Stall down the BH 
forces at your HQ but make no major effort in the south...the north is where 
you advance. Remember to capture the city on your home island. The initial
two mechs and recon are killed/weakened with the A-Air and tank. Remember
that you can manipulate the volcano pattern by luring units into the lava :D
Anyways, the southern path should be void of any defense, owing to the fact
Hawke sucks anyway and will take forever to advance there. The southern tank
should actually retreat to the northwest base where a medium tank and tank
can combat BH's on equal...ish ground. They might even retreat from lack of
fuel...this is the best time to kill them. Join units if they get injured 
badly, 
and keep around an A-Air on the northern front to kill pesky mechs and 
infantry. 
Once you've reached the river in the north, use Overdrive and attack past it.
TANKS are key, I repeat. Bring along that A-Air and the two APCs (and
infantry) to capture cities and eventually, the bases and HQ itself. Continue
making tanks or Medium tanks (depending on funds) every turn from the closer
northwest base. By Day 15, start building infantry from other bases so you
won't lose too much Technique points, and to defend your HQ island. Once you
get the chance, make a major push with those tanks in the north and seize the
HQ by blocking all the bases...advance at the bottom for more power. Hawke 
will not be able to stem the invasion, and you can beat him in some 17-18 
days. Win in 24 days for security.

End:

"Looks like I survive another day."

Victory! 96 Speed + 100 Power + 100 Technique = 296 S-Rank



Mission 29: Navy vs. Air
------------------------
Drake vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *******

A rougher version than its NC counterpart, this version is completely 
different 
than its NC version. A-Air and cruisers should advance to meet the bombers and
battle copters. Destroy them. Missiles from the northern island will also help
soften those, so send a lander with an infantry to take those missiles. Also
take the base, port and cities near you. Build only infantry from the two 
bases 
(one you take later) for the first seven days. After you had taken out those
initial predeployed units, it's so much easier to advance from the middle
though you have virtually nothing but A-Airs! Send that northern lander back
to transport infantry to the middle to grab that neutral base. Remember!
Missiles are ALWAYS aimed at air units on this map. Keep advancing with your
two A-Airs (you build one more on Day 2)...and send a southern lander with
infantry to grab the airport on the island. Take properties on both northern
and southern islands, and do not let BH transport units to take the neutral
"central" airport. Keep moving the missile east. Build a medium tank and
transport the remaining units from the west eastward. With that new base of
yours, and BH bomber healed, kill the bomber with the remaining A-Air, since
your other one would have been killed. Keep churning in medium tanks from the
central base after building an A-Air the very first time. After getting the
bottom airport, build a fighter. "Victory goes to the better combatant", as
Hawke says. Unfortunately for him, it's not him even as he closes in the
neutral airport with more units. Regroup, then send those medium tanks. Add
in a bomber and fighter from the bottom airport. Add an A-Air whenever 
needed, but go tanks (7000G) ones now. Aim the central missile at land units 
(or air, if they're more grouped together), and build infantry from two 
western bases for technique reasons. The battle might cover the seas, but 
the main war is on land on that isthmus. Add in an artillery or two. With
fighters, try to neutralize the airports to the north and south. Long story
short, advance on land with medium tanks and A-Air with an artillery, take
out all air resistance with fighters, and use landers to send infantry to the
HQ when the time comes, and to grab cities. In the west, build infantry for
tech points. Once you capture the neutral airport, do whatever you want.
Easy win here. Keep units out of range of the 2 infantry that try to take the
HQ and you have it. Bringing two is better because Hawke uses his CO Powers...
Simply surround the infantry on all four sides. "Naval units repelling a 
superior air force? Quite a feat." Win in 23 days for full speed.


End:

Blow me down...We finally won."

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 96 Technique = 296 S-Rank



Mission 30: Danger x9
---------------------
GE CO (Eagle) vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *********

Predeployed Units:

GE: 1 Mech, 2 Battle Copters, 1 Rocket

BH: 1 Recon, 2 Tanks, 2 Artillery, 1 A-Air, 1 Rocket, 2 Medium Tanks, 3 Battle 
 
Copters

In this HC counterpart, use Eagle for quick effiency as well as a lightning
strike to eliminate the enemies quickly here. Piece of cake, but you don't 
want 
to lose more than 2 units or tech will drop (I lost 2 recons and a mech). Do 
not 
build from the right base till BH begins the collapse...there will be nothing
defending the lab. Use mostly battle copters from the left side (plus one
bomber) to wipe out everything...the two recons you build in left and central
are for vision. Easy.

End:

"These tanks will cement our victory."

Victory! 100 Speed + 100 Power + 97 Technique = 297 S-Rank



Mission 31: To The Rescue
-------------------------
Eagle + Sami vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: ???

This HC counterpart gives Adder even more units against you. You'll once again
want your major air force in the north to eliminate those pesky airplanes,
with a few in the south, and avoiding the laser cannons. Unlike in NC, you 
must 
race your planes to save Sami quickly, as she gets besieged by more forces...
remember, bombers are the best to take out minicannons...you might actually
want to them to suicide-kill the three farther ones with them. Win in less 
than 
8 days...13 will give you just 86 technique points.

End:

"I will not permit the enemy a moment's rest."

Victory! 94 Speed + 86 Power + 86 Technique = 266 A-Rank



Mission 32: Great Sea Battle
----------------------------
Any Three COs (Jess, Max, Kanbei) vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: *********

Use a team of Jess, Max, and Kanbei. Pure power. Let Max have the group of 
cities,Jess the base, cities, andports next to it, and Kanbei having the 
southeast island properties by sneaking a lander through the sub's range 
without  
going into it. Also have Kanbei take the properties on his home island. Build
only infantries over the first three days for all COs. Attack northern units
with Jess' and Max's missiles, which lures those units towards Max. 
Afterwards, 
have Jess build tanks until the neutral airport is taken (move infantry up, as
with the tank). Go regular tanks with Max from the right base (one base as
well), too. Kanbei's missile should pull those units down to just one HP. 
Sneak 
Kanbei's lander back out of sub range. Those forward BH units will retreat.
Keep moving Jess' units up the bridge while Max gets easy money from the eight
cities. After capturing the three neutral bases near your three COs, you're
ready for Stage 2 of the battle. Build a rocket from the southeast Kanbei base
to knock out that close minicannon early. After taking the base, Max will need
to build two A-Airs to stem the battle copter threat. Jess should wait till 
her 
tanks smash through the three units guarding the neutral base, then use it to
build Medium tanks and one bomber to help Max a bit. Bring back the lander to 
Kanbei's southeast base, for you will want to launch an amphibious invasion 
soon...add an A-Air to the rocket you send over. The Black Hole empire's 
forces 
may be rising in the north by Day 10, but Kanbei is the key to victory. Jess' 
bomber should attack the A-Air in liberating that neutral base if you haven't 
already. Once Max gets those A-Airs churned, build an artillery to hit the
Black Cannon and then medium tanks or regular tanks (depending on whether you
have the money) afterwards. 2-3 turns should kill the Black Cannon. Launch 
Kanbei island and Jess area missiles at northern (Max front) units. Kanbei
should launch the amphibious invasion (a rocket and an A-Air), but also create
another A-Air and send another infantry to send over right after through
lander. Your point is to pull off a land victory to take the base...medium
tank will help, too. No need to destroy the western minicannon. When Max uses
his super power, use that as an op to advance. Build a second medium tank for
Kanbei in the invasion for the invasion, then bring along another infantry 
with 
it on the lander. By the time you capture that base with Kanbei, start using
Medium and even Neotanks for Max and Jess. Kanbei should add in some A-Air for 
 
cover in taking that base, as well as a rocket. With the base and airport on
your side, rockets will come easily so you can easily destroy the minicannon
and the seem. Victory is sweet...build as much units as you can at the end
for technique. Win on Day 29. Major casualties, but "Is this the end?"
You have captured the factory! Now it's time to advance into Black Hole
itself...the score is counted for tech w/ Jess' units, not anyone else's.

End:

"We made it...I'm glad that's done."

Victory! 88 Speed + 25 Power + 89 Technique = 202 B-Rank



BLACK HOLE



Mission 33: Hot Pursuit
-----------------------
Any Three COs (Grit, Andy, Eagle) vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: **********


Mission Briefing: Attack the Black Hole citadel!


Mission Terms: Destroy the three cannons with ranged units...the battle has
begun on BH's turf.


Use a combo of Grit in the middle, with Andy and Eagle in the left and right.
This being one of the rougher missions, you'll need Grit to consistently build
infantry or artillery (use up all funds each turn, or get close) if you want
to survive. Infantry first turn, as you'll want all 5 bases churning 
everything. 
After you eliminate about half of the forces that fight Grit, have him a 
medium 
tank so he won't lose, that will stay out of artillery range, just in case you
do lose all your units. Andy should take out everything below the Black 
Cannons 
on his side, including the navy. Eagle has an easier time as she has one more
base. Mass artillery as well, and have a few tanks to eliminate Sturm's army
there, ignoring his navy. Eagle' units should aid Grit after about 10 days and
send him out of that miserable battle alive. If he wins, so does Jess. After 
you're 
ready, bombard those Black Cannons with all you have, may it be rockets,
artillery, or air. Win in 23 days. 

End:

"This is the beginning of the end."

Victory! 95 Speed + 62 Power + 91 Technique = 248 Pts. B-Rank



Mission 34: Final Front
-----------------------
Any Three COs (Sensei, Drake, Max) vs. Hawke
Red Difficulty: **********


Mission Briefing: The final conflict! Stop the enemy's missile from launching!


Mission Terms: Destroy the Deathray "plug" to win. You have a 30-day limit.


Predeployed Units:

OS: 2 Infantry, 1 APC

GE: 2 Infantry, 1 APC

YC: 2 Infantry, 1 APC

BH: 2 Tanks, 2 A-Airs, 2 Medium Tanks, 2 Neotanks, 2 Submarines, 2 Cruisers,
2 Battleships


General Strategic Checklist:

1. Hold out in the south and keep Sturm's forces pinned down.

2. From the sides, defeat Sturm by cracking the seems and advance from the
west and east.


Black Hole Strats: Sturm's armies are deployed in an interesting fashion. He 
focuses on Sensei (central) and Drake (left) to the point that neither can 
pull off any major advances, but in the east, with Max, he puts up little 
resistance. Eventually, his focus will be to take the neutral base near the 
left Black Cannon, and he'll even pull in some air forces from the island 
airport in the west, as well as land forces from the three bases near the 
Deathray.


General Strategy: Here, you'll want to use a combo of Sensei (center), Drake 
(left), and Max (right). Sensei should send (in the first 3 turns) an 
infantry with a T-Copter to capture the southeast base, and southwest airport 
of Sturm's, respectively. You will succeed if you go in that order. The only 
thing BH even builds from each side is an artillery (you can avoid it until 
it goes away, then capture it...the transport copter will block the base), 
and a T-Copter, which will leave, giving you an opening. Sensei at this point 
should capture the cities around, mass mechs, and add a few tanks, A-Airs, 
artillery, and eventually two rockets to take out the aggressors, then use 
those to hit and destroy the two Black Cannons. Basically, Sensei takes 
EVERYTHING south of the Black Cannons. Drake takes the somewhat small left 
side. He can't do much with Sturm in the way, but that's why we're using 
Drake...Drake has Typhoon, which will suck the seas dry of fuel and destroy 
Black Hole's power in the air and sea in the west. By then, you'll be able to 
advance a little and take that front...keep a few A-Air and artillery around 
and take those properties. Finally, Max is the major offensive force. Quickly 
grab the properties around...all COs should remember to use the silos to 
weaken Black Hole power in the center. Take those neutral properties for all 
COs nearby by Day 7. By Day 17, you'll want to have smashed the pipeline seem 
to the middle with Max. Powerful Max, who actually controls the Technique 
points you get, should take care to have four bombers, and Neotanks coming 
every turn to break through the east's seems and minicannon. Move in with 
your quick units, preferably with a Super CO Power, to destroy the minicannon 
and Deathray by Day 25. The entire middle should have fallen...Max's direct 
power is unmatched. Just remember that Sensei should avoid the Deathray on 
Days 7, 14, and 21, since Sensei doesn't even need to advance anyway. 
Remember that the Black Cannons should be neutralized by Sensei's rockets. 
Breaking the seems TO the Black Cannon is unnecessary.


End:

"Attack the missile platform." (self-destruct device). "Chance is a fickle 
thing. You never know when it will come your way. Sturm... it's time for you 
to go! Black Storm!" "What you've done to Macro Land is unforgiveable! But... 
You saved me... You saved all of us. Thanks." Eagle and Hawke argue again. 
"Isn't that... Hey, it's Hachi! What brings you all the way out here?" 
Olaf goes back to rebuild his hometown, Grit may or may not rejoin Orange 
Star, 
and they argue again a bit. But Andy starts the party! Of course, you did a
great job too...celebrate before you watch the credits.

Vision: How many square spaces they can see in Fog of War conditions
Fuel: How much fuel or ammo the unit has left
CO Powerup: What COs have those units strong
CO Powerdown: What COs have those units weak
What they look like: Self-explanatory

Basic Info: What are they used for?


-Infantry-
Rating: *
Cost: 1000 credits
Movement: 3
Vision: 2
Fuel (Ammo): 99
CO Powerup: Sami, Kanbei
CO Powerdown: Grit, Sonja
What they look like: Soldiers holding machine guns

Basic Info: Infantry units have the lowest deployment cost. They can capture 
bases but have low firepower. Infantry move on foot. They can cross most 
terrain but only in short increments. They gain 3 vision whenever climbing a 
mountain. They can fire at infantry, vehicles, and battle copters. Infantry 
are the backbone of any battling army. You need them to capture cities, 
factories, airports, seaports, and most importantly, the enemy HQ. Their 
vision increases to five on mountains. Their main purpose, though, can be 
used to overwhelm the enemy with loads of infantry.

-Mech-
Rating: ***
Cost: 3000 credits
Movement: 2
Vision: 2
Fuel (Ammo): 70
CO Powerup: Sami, Kanbei
CO Powerdown: Grit
What they look like: When against any of the 4 kinds of tanks, infantry with 
bazookas, when not, infantry with normal machine guns

Basic Info: Mech units can capture bases, traverse most terrain types, and 
have superior firepower. They can cover most terrain at the movement cost of 
one. They also increase vision by 3 whenever climbing a mountain. They can 
attack for three rounds before recharging. The bazooka is effective against 
vehicles, especially with Sami. Plus, they have more firepower, more defense, 
and the ability to take out an Artillery or Rocket Launcher in one shot (if 
Sami's CO power Double Time on)! They're also potent against Tanks. They do 
have one drawback and that is that they're really slow. They have all the 
abilities of Infantry, including Capture and 
mountain-climb-to-get-better-vision-in-Fog-Of-War. Also, Infantry and Mechs 
are the only units that can get the defense bonus for fighting in the 
mountains and are the only units besides Air units that can get into 
mountains in the first place!

-Recon-
Rating: **
Cost: 4000 credits
Movement: 8
Vision: 5
Fuel: 80
CO Powerup: Max, Kanbei
CO Powerdown: Sami, Grit
What they look like: A cube with a turret on wheels

Basic Info: Recon units have high movement range and are strong against 
infantry units. Recon units travel on tires. This prevents them from 
crossing some types of terrain. Recon units have a large vision range, 
making them invaluable in Fog of War. Recon units use machine guns, and 
are obviously best used for Fog of War conditions. They can't really 
stand up to tanks and they don't have a lot of firepower to their name. 
Not much to say!

Weather effects in SNOW weather: Infantry slow down on plains and 
mountains, mechs slow on the mountains, tread and tires run slower on 
plains as much as rain, tires run as slow on forest as in rain but 
tread are virtually stuck, and air units are slowed by 1 space, as 
are sea and transport units.

Terrain Effects:

Shoal and forest both are able to hide your units in Fog of war maps. 

Terrain Advantages - Shoal and forest are places for your units to hide
out of vision on fog of war maps, so use them. Also, friendly cities 
are even better than being on a mountain, as you heal 2 HP per turn.

Advanced Strategies:

I use a strategy called the defensive wall strategy. The first line of
units takes hits from direct fire, then the weakened units (5 or less
HP) retreat and regroup, and then you bring in tanks and use indirect
fire to defeat everything that reaches you. Very effective in campaign
modes.

13. War Room Mode Guide
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

In Advance Wars, it was fairly easy to get S-ranks, as long as you put
your mindset into strategies. In Advance Wars 2, they're taken it up
a notch. Although the first twenty War Room missions are the same, they
have all-new computer opponents that have a stronger AI. Original
strategies will more or less work less well here.

War Room strategies coming soon!

Islas Five - This 4 player map is probably the one I've played the most.
Best to worst on this map: Max, Grit, Sami, Eagle, Nell, Sturm, Kanbei, 
Sonja, Andy, Drake, Olaf. Use what you're best at, and control the 
bridges! Just don't use Olaf, Olaf's CO power is weak and also hits your 
own allies (if you have any).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
15. Design Maps Mode
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Want to design a map? You have 3 slots to save your maps. This section
will tell you how to make your custom maps the best they can be! I
personally have the best out of about 1200 maps at Advance Wars Network,
and they grade quite strictly. I'll give you the tips and tricks for 
making the BEST AW map ever, and still keep it quite playable! Use these
Design Maps against your friends!

Design Map Mode Controls: 
-------------------------

This may be a bit confusing at first, so here we go!

Control Pad - Move to another square of the map, hence the cursor. Bit
like regular gameplay except you're making a map.

R - Access the terrains. Put mountains, properties, forests, sea, it's
all here.

L - Access the units you can place. Every unit is available.

Start - This shows a mini map of your design map. It flashes between
terrain and units on it if you have units on your design map.

Select - This access the menu, which in turn have its own categories:

File - This lets you load, save, or name a map. Note that there's a
limit on how many letters you can use to save on a map, and that you
can only save three total maps.

Help - This shows the conditions of your design map that you must
follow (like 60 maximum properties, 50 maximum units for each side),
and instructions on how to design a map.

Intel - This tells you how many properties of each kind you have for
each army color, as well as neutral properties.

Fill - This lets you fill the map with plains, mountains, forest,
sea, or random terrain. This lets you fill a certain terrain quickly
so you don't have to enter everything from hand. The random map
option is useful, but not very useful. It's better to fill it with, 
say, sea, and then add in everything. It looks better that way.

End - This stops you from making any more Design Maps for now. 
If you haven't saved, Nell will ask you if you want to save.

Design Map Restrictions
-----------------------

You must have at least two HQs, and at least one unit or one
deploying base for each army. You may also put units without
a HQ but they won't attack anyone unless you attack them.
They're basically Andy without the attacking power or the CO
power.

The standard map's dimensions is 30x20, decent for most maps unless
you're planning to make like a perfect map of Europe or something
(I've gotten close, mind you). Make it a mini-map in the middle or
in a corner if you want and surrounded it with sea or mountains or
something, it will still work (like making It's War! on DM).

You may not have more than 60 properties on your map at any given
time. This is decent for a 30x20 map, depending on how your map
goes.

You may not have more than 50 units of any army at once. Besides,
if you had 200 units Advance Wars would actually lag. So don't put
that much, and besides, it doesn't look good in VS. Battles.

Terrain-wise, you must have roads on maps, or else you'll slow down.
Bridges are optional for sea/river maps, as with shoals and reefs.
In a sea map, make sure to have enough shoal but not too much. You
must have at least a fairly decent percentage (like at least 5%) for
mountains and forest. So put about 30 squares each of mountains and
forest, cause they look good on maps, like my map Gift River. You 
need the forest for FOW and/or defensive cover, anyway, and it looks
better than all plains. Just don't have too much of that, that's
standard.

Building-wise, put your city to deployment base ratio at 1:1 to 3:1,
depending on what the map looks like. Don't have less than 10
properties, cause that's not even a mini-map, but don't go overboard.
Look comes first, you can fix the gameplay later.
