1. Game Story

A solution has turned into a problem!  
Man's solution to war, the artificial brain "MHC2", has somehow overidden its
programming and is turning our own weapons against us.
In response to this threat, world leaders have chosen a two member team
from the top-secret defense program code-named, "Silkworm".
This team will utilize the unique weaponry and maneuverability of the
Silkworm attack helicopter and the Silkworm interceptor jeep 
to infiltrate MHC2's defenses and eradicate the threat.
To do so will take ever ounce of the team's strenght, reflexes
and determination.  MHC2 has issued its ultimatum:  
"Surrender! Worship me as your god or DIE!"
Intelligence recommends extreme caution.  Beware of MHC2's trickery!
The world is anxiously waiting.
Will the Silkworm team succeed or will they fail?  Only time will tell.

7. Helpful Hints.

*Use different firing patterns in the 2 player game
in order to cover each other.

*Try to destroy the 2nd vehicle of the MH and C2 SNAKEHEAD before it forms.
You will be rewarded.

*Each waves main target has a weak spot.  
A white flash will occur if you score a direct hit on this spot.

*Avoid contact with idestructable enemies.  (DUH!)
