    ----------TANX----------
    -Learn you Tanx, beat your enemy's, win the game.
    -Stats out of Four Stars****.
    
    ____________
    M1A1:   The heavy tank of the US Army during the Apocalypse, the M1A1 Abrams is
    a fearsome machine. Although it is difficult for smaller tribes to keep these
    maintained, larger tribes have little to lose by fielding them.
    
    -Speed:**
    -Armor:**1/2
    -Firepower:**1/2
    ____________
    Goliath:    The super-heavy Goliath has the best armor and weapon. Mounted on a
    small rail platform, it can leave its railway bed at any time. Designed for
    base protection, its firepower is incredible. On rails, the Goliath Tank has a
    significantly increased rate of fire, due to its extra stability. Its 210mm gun
    can knock the fight right out of an M1A1.
    
    -Speed:*
    -Armor:****
    -Firepower:****
    ____________
    Inferno:    This flame thrower tank is deadly at close range. Watch out, or
    your goose is cooked! Pressing rail right/rail left will cause the Inferno to
    spew flames to the left and right of its directional path.
    
    -Speed:***
    -Armor:*1/4
    -Firepower:****
    ____________
    HoverTank:  This unusual European light tank uses anti-grav technology. As a
    result, it is a challenge to maneuver. But in the hands of an expert, it is
    fast and agile. Pushing rail right/rail left, you can effectively strafe with
    this tank.
    
    -Speed:****
    -Armor:*
    -Firepower:*1/2
    ____________
    Hornet:     Popular with the American Gangs, this low-tech variant mounts twin
    missile launchers on a standard tank body. Get it before it gets you! By
    pushing rail left/rail right, you can fire “hook shot” missiles.
    
    -Speed:**
    -Armor:**
    -Firepower:**1/2
    ____________
    Marksman:   This medium tank mounts a laser weapon as its main gun, and is
    great for long range sniping.
    
    -Speed:**
    -Armor:**
    -Firepower:**1/3
    ____________
    Rhino:  This heavy tank-destroyer was cobbled together from a medium chassis
    and a trainload of armor. The designers mounted 6 inches of Chobham composite
    armor on the front of the vehicle, but didn't have any left over for the sides
    and the rear! So it is almost invulnerable from the front, but easy to damage
    on the flanks. Pushing rail right/rail left allows veiws to the sides of the
    Rhino as you drive.
    
    -Speed:**
    -Armor:****(In Front)*(In flanks)
    -Firepower:***
    ____________
    M-2 Hydra:  The Hydra is a light French tank with 2 rapid firing guns. It's
    good for leveling buildings and hitting fast moving targets.
    
    -Speed:**1/2
    -Armor:**
    -Firepower:**
    ____________
    Mototank:   Born of a motorcycle fork and customized tread work from a military
    half-track, the MotoTank trades armor for Speed. Watch out for them near your
    queen lords, as they are the abduction vehicle of choice among the inner Gangs.
    Pressing rail right/rail left makes the Mototank execute a tight turn.
    
    -Speed:****
    -Armor:*
    -Firepower:*
    ____________
    Rattler:    The Rattler is one deadly snake. It mounts a vicious 30mm Gattling
    Gun. Almost as agile as the MotoTank, it can also execute tight turns using
    then rail right/rail left buttons.
    
    -Speed:***
    -Armor:**
    -Firepower:**
    ____________
    FLP-E Tank:     Pronounced “Flippy”, the name stands for
    “Full Lateral Propulsion  - Experimental”. By pushing rail
    right/rail left, you can effectively strafe with this tank.
    
    -Speed:***
    -Armor:**
    -Firepower:**

    ---Single Player Campaign---
    Story line mode, 18 levels, Co-op Option.
    
    ---Multi-Player---
    -Deathmatch: First player to have 10 Kills
    -Battlelord: First player to capture all Queenlords from the opponents base
    wins.
    -Tank Wars: Team of Tanks battle each other for 3 minutes. The team with the
    highest score at the end of this times wins.
    -Frenzy: To win, you must resque the queenlords that appear radomly on each
    level. Get 10 to win.
    -Convoy: Each team of tanks is assigned to either Protect, or Destroy the
    convoy of about 8 transports.
    -Hole 'Em: To win, you must take the Queenlord from the center of the map,
    return her to your base, and gurad her for 30 seconds. Very fast paced.
    -Family: An alternate style of deathmatch, where you have unlimited main cannon
    ammo, and power-ups are automatically armed in sequence when you pick them up.
    Power-up weapons are automatically used in preference to your main cannon.
    Single button control is utilized; all weappons are fired from the Z button.
    Very confusing to learn.
    
    
    ----------MULTI-PLAYER MAPS----------

    where the tain is when it passes by. That side also has tons of Guided
    Missiles. If you are on the south side(The shorter side), there are tons of gun
    buddy's. When you have 8 Gun Buddy's Press A+B simultaneously, you will let out
    tons of Gun Buddy's, including Pop-up, Giant, half-giant, and normal.
    
    -Germany - Railyard
        Difficulty: Hard
    
    Hope that helps!!!
    
    
    ----------POWER-UPS----------
    This is a list of the Power-ups you can get in the game.
    
    Star- This is left behind when a tank is destroyed and gives a little ammo and
    health.
    
    Health- Duh.
    
    Ammo- Ammo for your main cannon.
    
    Radar- Tells where your objectives, enemy's and allies are.
        Blue= Good
        White= Nuetral
        All other colors= Enemy
    
    Swarmer missiles- Fires three moderate damage afflicting missiles.
    
    Grenades- Good for clearing mine fields.
    
    Guided Missiles- Everyone's favorite, after firing hold down the A button to
    guide the missile from a camera angle behind the missile. You tank does nothing
    when missile is being guided.
    
    Mines- Pretty self-explanatory.
    
    Laser- a laser that does moderate damage.
    
    Sheild- A shield goes around your tank and deflects things fired. Turns reed
    when wearing out.
    
    Cloaking- Makes your tank invisible from enemy's and radar, but you become
    visible for a second when you fire any weapon.
    
    Nuke- Um... Duh.
    
    Gun Buddy- A stationary turret that fires at enemies.
    
    The Edge- Found only in later levels of campaign mode, this one use power-up
    can take over some units or make others spin in circles for a short time.
    
    Teleporter- Teleportation power-up. A good use for this is... right after a
    nuke explodes, teleport. That way the nuke won't harm you a bit, because you
    are teleporting.
    
    Plasma Bolts- These bounce and bounce off buildings till theyt hit a tank.
    
    Turbo- Similar to a nitro in many racing games, you can go fast.
    
    Flame thrower- A powerful short range attack.
    
    Bouncing betty- Similar to a mine, when anyone comes near it it jumps into the
    air and shoots out random laser shots.
    
    
    ----------CAMPAIGN WALKTHROUGH----------
    
    This is a detailed walkthrough for the main Campaign mode, 2 player or single
    player.
    
    |----|San Francisco Airport
    -Destroy all Tanks
    
    When you start get the radar. Turn around and get the swarmers. In one-player,
    beware of the trucks. When you blow one that has propane in back, there is a
    very powerful shockwave. In the dock area, there are some tank bucks. This one
    is very easy. You don't even have to press a button to win.
    
    Par Time: 3:00
    
    |----|San Francisco Break Out
    -Get to the escape ship
    
    This one is a little harder. Blow up a couple buildings and get the swarmers.
    Destroy the boats in the water in the beginning. There is a sub near the tunnel
    that will get you 3000 points. When in the tunnel, a good 2-Player Tactic is
    one player breaks to the left, while the other person goes straight. The one
    that went straight kills the inferno on the turn, while the one that turned,
    kills the second. With guided missiles you can destroy the boats from the cover
    of the buildings. The enemy tanks generate from the pier at the beginning, so
    watch out. Towards the end, there are some tank bucks surrounded by buildings.
    Get those and touch the escape ship to win.
    
    Par time: 3:00
    
    |----|Truck Stop
    -Destroy all Tanks and Bunkers
    
    Bunkers are those buildings with green fronts. You should definintly be the
    Moto-Tank on this one. One the first run through, go straight right away and
    turn right. Destroy the bunker. In the gated area next to it, there are some
    tank bunks. Continue, and watch out for enemy Gun buddy's. If you get guided
    missiles, use them and destroy the bunkers, but keep an eye out for enemies. A
    little past the middle, there are some tanks inside a breakable wall, w/ some
    tank bucks. Watch out for the trains, and the two hornets at the end. Next to
    each hornet are some tank bucks.
    
    Par Time: 7:00
    
    |----|Texas Slave Fortress
    -Rescue all Prisoners
    
    This is the only tough one. There are so many gun buddy's near the prisoners,
    that your first couple runs with the M1A1 will be just for blowing them up! So,
    as you heard... use the M1A1 and blow up tons of Gun Buddy's. The more gun
    buddy's the better. At the beginning each time you die get the radar, there
    should be one in front of you and one behind to the right. (Remember: Gun
    Buddy's are not on the map!) Once you take out the turrets, the mission should
    just be a matter of where the prisoners are. Using guided missiles you can
    easily take out the gun buddy's. You will find some at the top of the map, near
    some missiles. (Note: If you get yourself in the right position, the gun
    buddy's shots will just go by you if you are a Moto-Tank.) Often times you will
    need to blow up buildings to reach the prisoners. There are eight Prisoners.
    (Note: Gun Buddy's can see you when you are cloaked after you fire! Another
    tip, use the train as cover.) These enemy bunkers cannot be destoyed at this
    level. Many times, you will find tank bucks after you destroy the missiles.
    
    Par Time: 6:00
    
    |----|Drive In
    -Destroy two video projectors
    
    >From the beginning, chose a moto-tank. Take the first left and DON'T SHOOT
    ANYTHING! Avoid the mines, and take a left after the two buildings. Keep going
    straight until yo come across a breakable wall on the left. Blow it up, and go
    inside ignoring the pop-up gun buddy.  Go through the next breakable wall, and
    destroy the first building. Always be moving! Get the grenades, and throw an
    aimed one at the movie projector. If you've practiced, you can leave now. Exit
    the same way as you entered. When you exit take a left. Then take another left.
    Continue going and take the jump. There should be another jump. You should see
    a concrete tiny wall. Take that path. There should be a jump, on a tun going
    left. Take the turn slowly and keep going. There should be another breakable
    wall, next to the propane tank. Go through the wall, run in, throw a grenade at
    the movie projector and kepp moving. This should take about 0:53. With the par
    time of 9:00, you will get tons of points.
    
    Par Time: 9:00
    
    *MORE COMING SOON!*

    ----------TIPS/CODES----------
    
    CUSTOM GANGS:
    In Cheats Menu type:
    
    TRDDYBRRKS
    
    and then type anything that you want. When I type in sprmn(Superman), I get
    certain tanks, and a certain starting power-up. If your Custom Gang has nothing
    as its power-up, that means that it starts with short-range radar.
