    7.#The Walkthrough
    1. {Introduction}_________________________________________________
    Front mission 3 is one of the most fantastic games ever created, infact the 
    whole series reeks of sheer genius. For me as a fan of the series, there 
    couldn't be a more perfect formula in terms of the depth of everything in this 
    game such as the characters which are amazing, the wanzer design is perfect. 
    Whats a wanzer? oh sorry let me explain, a wanzer is a combat unit with 
    movement like a human being & looks kinda like the mechs in gundam wing. Let me
    stress that if you don't like robots in games you will be hooked after playing 
    this game, anyway back to the point. The story is set in 2112 & takes place all
    over the world but starts in Okinawa, Japan where a young man named Kazuki 
    Takemura is begining a training session as he is a wanzer test pilot later he 
    meets his old friend Ryogo Kusama who is also a test pilot for the company 
    known as the JDF, (I won't explain everything because you will see for yourself
    as you are playing the game) so Kazuki & Ryogo recieve orders to deliver some 
    wanzer robots to a nearby JDF base & thats when all the trouble began with an 
    explosion they witness & the creation of the MIDAS bomb. Ok, ok, so the story 
    is really hi-tech & requires some thinking but it will become much eaiser to 
    understand as you get in to it. I guess that about wraps the introduction up 
    phew! I hope the layout of this walkthrough is easy for you to follow

    3. {Equipment & setting up}_______________________________________
    Right lets get to the punch, when equiping weapons & backpacks (you need 
    backpacks to carry healing or reloading items) you can't go past the set weight
    limit of that wanzer so always check the weapons weight in shops before you buy.
    The set up feature allows you to alter your wanzers parts for example if you 
    want to change the arms for better ones with higher hp you could do that in set
    up but remember about weight limits, you can also name your wanzer & change 
    it's colour which is useful so you know who your guys are(try to keep the 
    colours separate from the enemy otherwise you can get confused about who you're
    players are. When you equip a backpack on your wanzer you can carry items but 
    only as many as the red lines will allow as this is the capacity of the 
    backpack, confusing? After you've played a couple of times you won't believe 
    how easy it is.
    4. {Weapon classes & leveling up}_________________________________
    The amount of damage your weapons do depend on the weapon class & it starts at 
    A(amature) & S(supreme) is the best class, baisicly a wanzer is composed of 
    several parts. Body, left arm,right arm, left leg, right leg, & the pilot if 
    the body is put down to 0 hp then the wanzer is imediatly destroyed. If one of 
    the arms goes then you can no longer use the weapon set to that arm & if both 
    arms go you can't do nothing but move around. If the legs are destroyed you can
    only move one square at a time opposed to many if you have the wanzers legs 
    intact,& if the pilot goes then that person dies & the wanzer will become 
    neutral until someone gets inside it. These parameters effect you & the enemy 
    so try to use them to your advantage, this is where leveling up your weapons 
    comes in because you get expirience on your weapon for each enemy part you 
    destroy & when the weapon bar becomes full you're weapon will level up making 
    it's class go up therefore making it stronger. it is very important to level up
    your currently equiped wepons so you can deal more damage. All weapons start at
    A class & after one level up it will go to A class with one star, then 
    two star, & finally three stars. After three stars the letter of the class will
    go up, example- A*** class (three star)- machine gun would become B class 
    machine gun & so on.
    5. {Battle skills}_____________________________________________________________
    Not only can wanzers wield heavy artilery but they can also use battle skills 
    which can aid your attack on an enemy unit, you can equip battle skills of 
    course you have to learn them first by using various weapons or fulfilling 
    certain critiria on that wanzer, you can only equip so many battle skills in 
    the wanzers computer & it works like the back-pack where the green lines show 
    whats equiped & red show empty slots. when you learn a battle skill you can 
    equip it straight away if you're computer has enough slots left, once you learn
    a battle skill a screen will come up & to equip the skill you just have to move
    it over to the small slots on the right. Battle skills occur randomly but you 
    can increase the likelyhood of activating one by equiping the same skill in the
    wanzer computer if you learn it again, this also would make it possible to do 
    the same battle skill twice in a row or three times etc. At the start of the 
    game only you're players can use battle skills but on later missions enemys can
    use them too & they can be nasty ones too, but if you come preapared you won't 
    have to fear unless the enemy pulls out a battle skill, likewise you should try
    the same.
    6. {Medals}_______________________________________________________
    Medals mark how well you perform in battle & range from bronze to platinum, you
    gain a platinum medal if you don't take much damage & destroy all enemy wanzers
    etc. this is just optional to show your skill with wanzers & gaining every 
    platinum medal will not gain you anything, apart from the money you win after a
    battle will increase.Got all that? I hope so, after playing a few times it 
    really is very easy it's just getting the hang of things. Let's begin then 
    shall we?! 
    (I've only explained the very basic actions but there are many tutorials in the
     game so watch them.)

    7. {The Walkthrough} (Alisa's story)
    Okinawa-Ocean city_____________________________________________________________
    After you view the opening you will awake in Kirashima industrys, you will then
    be asked to name your character(note: this guide refers to the default name) 
    after that it's time for action! You now begin a training session, it's very 
    simple here just follow the scientists instructions until you reach the 
    destination point. Along the way you will be told about AP & how to move your 
    wanzer. When you do reach the destination point it's time to use your artilery!
    In this first battle you don't have to worry about being attacked so use the 
    shotgun or press square to switch to a melee weapon (note:For melee class 
    weapons you must be next to your enemy as it isn't ranged like a shotgun, due 
    to it's lack of range it has awsome destructive power) & destroy the practise 
    wanzer. After doing this, a JDF pilot will throw down a challenge for you to 
    try & beat an actual fighting wanzer. When battle commences just use your 
    shotgun several times to bring the fight to a close, (I don't think it will 
    matter wether you lose or not as it's only practise but I've never lost, you 
    should be able to get a platinum medal here easy.) After the battle(save if you
    like) you will talk with the JDF pilot & the scientist who is introduced as Dr.
    Koike, all of a sudden an old friend of Kazuki's drops by with some deliverys. 
    Kazuki & Ryogo talk then Dr.Koike will give Ryogo a job to do, talk to Ryogo & 
    he will ask you something & now you are faced with who's story you will do 
    depending on your answer you will either do Emma's story or Alisa's story. 
    Seeing as this guide is written for Alisa's story choose not to go with Ryogo 
    (Ryogo will still join your team as he joins in both storys regardless of your 
    choice) & you will now be playing Alisa's story from here on. Now from the 
    command menu select move & go to the dormitory to continue or go to the wanzer 
    test site to learn some game basics. Anyway, Kazuki will go to the dormitory & 
    he will find he has an E-mail from Alisa asking how he's doing so Kazuki 
    decides to go buy her a sovenier. From the move command select the only option 
    avalible "Shopping mall", at the shopping mall you run in to Ryogo again after 
    the talk go to move to leave the area & head to the JDF Facility. After some 
    talking you will find out Ryogo will be coming with you to deliver some wanzers
    to a JDF base, as soon as you regain control select move & go to the heliport, 
    you now travel to Yokosuka.
    Watch the scenes to witness an explosion on the base, Kazuki realises Alisa is 
    working in the base & rushes towards it only to be stopped by JDF soldiers.
    Wanzers:Wanzer pilot JDF + 2 - Enemy battle skills: none   Enemy weapon class:A
                                                               Battle rating- *Easy
    This is your first real fight, you will have both Kazuki & Ryogo in Shunyo 
    mk111 wanzers, Kazuki will be exactly the same as when you used him in 
    practise. As for Ryogo, he is equiped with quite a decent machine gun & 
    hardblow which won't do much at all, try to let Kazuki deal with one & Ryogo 
    the other as you want them both to get weapon exp, it's highly doubtful you 
    will learn any battle skills as you won't be keeping these wanzers as they are 
    strong & would prove easy to walk all over enemy units, don't get attached to 
    these wanzers as this will be the last time you use these. Overall this is 
    quite easy compared to the first real battle in Emma's story. Before you have 
    chance to completly destroy these goons the battle will end.
    Watch the scenes & wave goodbye to those good Shunyo mk111's as you are 
    arrested & thrown in prison, bah I never did like prison food anyway not that 
    I've tried it of course, at the Inter mission Save & you can begin your 
    sentance. Anyway after a talk with the prison guard Kazuki's dad Isao gets you 
    out of jail & he will tell you Alisa is safe & dismiss you so go to move & 
    leave the base. You will also see a scene between Sasaki & Kuroi. After some 
    more scenes you will be in for a fight with USN special forces & you will be in
    a new wanzer!
    Wanzers:Gastor, Emma, Cindy, Joe,               Enemy battle skills: None   
            Enemy weapon class:A                    Battle rating:*Easy+           
    U.S.N. fight 1
    You shouldn't worry too much about winning just don't let Alisa die, & after a 
    while the fight will be brought to a close & you will be saved by a man who 
    introduces himself as Liu. When you arrive at the Yokosuka hanger talk to Liu &
    he will talk about making alterations to your wanzer to travel across the sea 
    to escape the JDF don't worry this is done for you but be warned, don't stay as
    a hover wanzer for a long time as later you won't be able to use boost if you 
    are in a hover wanzer but it can eaisley be reversed by changing your wanzers 
    legs back to proper ones, but for now you will have to like & lump your wanzer 
    as Liu would put it. After you've finished here you will see a scene at the 
    docks & it's time for a showdown!
    Wanzers: Wanzer pilot JDF + 4  Enemy battle skills:None   Enemy weapon class:A
                                                              Battle rating:*Medium
    In this fight you will have Kazuki, Ryogo, Alisa & Liu. Alisa is equiped with a
    rocket launcher that has limited ammo( you can reload it by using the missile 
    item & you have one spare for this battle so use it well) so you might wanna 
    save those missiles for an emergency, while Liu is equiped with a rifle which 
    will come in useful. The rifle has unlimited ammo & does decent damage when it 
    hits that is but for now you can't do anything about the accuracy of Liu's 
    rifle. You should learn some battle skills here like Tackle for Kazuki, Panic 
    shot for Alisa, & possibly Rofup1 for Ryogo. 
          Bear in mind these occur randomly so it's about luck. Start the battle by
    ganging up on a wanzer & you may even capture it which gives you the enemys 
    wanzer at the end of battle so you can take parts off & move them around to 
    your wanzer to learn new battle skills & get more Hp etc. Don't take one wanzer
    on for each person just have all your team attack one wanzer at a time. If you 
    need to heal your wanzers use some items which by default you now have but you 
    don't have much repair kits so only use them when you need them & try not to 
    let key body parts equipped with weapons to be destroyed otherwise you won't be
    able to attack. Work as a team & take the JDF pilots down one by one spreading 
    out at this stage in the game isn't really an option as you don't want anyone 
    dying in battle giving you a major disadvantage. If you are really lucky here 
    you could pick up the double assault battle skill for kazuki which uses both 
    melee & any other gun together for a 2 hit combo! After this battle there will 
    be an inter mission as always so save your game here or visit the network 
    (there really isn't much to visit the network for at the moment)
    Miharu-cho, Yokosuka garage______________________________________
    There will be a scene with all yor current party & Liu will explain he is from 
    DHZ army (Da hang zong) when you get chance talk to Liu & he will continue to 
    talk about the 'accident' at the JDF base & you will discover that the USN want
    their hands on MIDAS the new type of bomb that you saw cause the accident at 
    the JDF base. once again after this talk to Liu & he will say the DHZ are here 
    in Yokosuka to destroy MIDAS after this talk to Ryogo then Liu again & he will 
    tell you he is leaving Japan. At this point Liu will join you & he will help 
    you escape the JDF, after this Liu & Alisa will teach you about set-up if you 
    are a novice or you are new to the game read through this very carefully. 
    whether you know how to set up or not you will still have to go through the 
    tutorial so just wizz through it if you know your Zenislev from your Shunyo. 
    it's up to you how you set up your wanzers at this point but for now if you 
    want a good advantage I would keep things as they are, once this is done make 
    sure you always remember to resupply your backpack after every battle if it is 
    required. Now before you continue I highly reccomend you set each member of 
    your team a specific colour for their wanzer so you don't get confused with who
    is who & you can also name their machine if you like by going to setup 
    selecting someone by pressing X & then by pressing X again on setup then go to 
    body setting to adjust the name & colour of your selected character's wanzer. 
    when you are ready it's time to hit the road & pretty quick I might say, oh & 
    by the way you have some new features in network (shop) where at the minute you
    can only buy items such as repair & simulator(indepth explanation later) where 
    you can train your wanzers to learn battle skills & upgrade your weapon classes
    which you might want to do for everybody as the next few battles are going to 
    be almost hell! train everyone's weapon class to- A three stars then save & 
    when you are ready it's time to high tail it! select move & go out to leave in 
    the truck Liu prepared. There will be a scene with Isao after you leave.
    Power plant_______________________________________________________
    You will be found by the JDF & a fight will ensue. Be ready for a brute 
    struggle, but don't worry having Liu's rifle should be of great help...
    that is when it hits...
    Wanzers:Wanzer pilot JDF +3  Enemy battle skills-none   Enemy weapon class-A
                                                            Battle rating- *Medium+
    You will start this battle against three choppers & they can be a pain in the 
    neck at this stage so use the missiles to take care of them, hopefully you 
    still have some stored in Alisa's backpack or you should have bought some & 
    equiped them in your backpack. By turn 3 thats when problems can arise because 
    backup will arrive, the problem is they will try to sandwich your team members 
    off so stick together & take the enemy wanzers out one by one as before, repair
    kits may be required for use. after this little scuffle you may have captured a
    few wanzers even if you have two of the same one's keep them for now you can 
    sell them later if you need to(it's worth keeping one to learn the battle skill
    rofup2). Anyway ONWARD! At the inter-mission save & either train in simulator 
    or setup your wanzer also check your mail he he he. after this exit the inter-
    mission. Now once again it's showdown time!
    Wanzers: Wanzer pilot JDF +3, Kuroi, tank pilot +2  Enemy battle skills- Kuroi:
    Zoom I              Enemy weapon class:A            Battle rating-*Normal+
    You are clearly outnumbered here as if that isn't obvious but to add a slight 
    amount of difficulty Kuroi has a battle skill similar to the ones your wanzers 
    have been learning. Zoom I is mainly for accuracy & it isn't a real threat but 
    it's still best to be on your guard with at least Kuroi. Also by now you should
    be making it a rule to check the enemys stats so you know what to be ready for 
    in the way of battleskills & the like, do this by placing the cursor over them 
    then press X for a display. Now first take care of Kuroi with Kazuki, Ryogo & 
    Liu, only have Alisa provide support fire by missiles if you are in danger, 
    after Kuroi goes down pay immediate attention to the JDF rocket wanzer pilot & 
    now take him down to avoid hasstle make full use of Alisa's missiles & Liu's 
    rifle as both have the long range effect but the accuracy won't be great at the
    minute so grit your teeth for now meanwhile have Kazuki & Ryogo upfront to 
    cause major damage at close range. Make it top priority to eliminate or capture
    (if you can) all enemy wanzers first the small fry tanks can be destroyed after
    hopefully, you won't be presented with a struggle as soon as "backup" arrives 
    the area is bombed & you escape under Liu's orders.
    After this save at the inter-mission & we are ready to rock!
    DHZ submarine______________________________________________
    Ha, ha Ryogo is full of energy & Kazuki scolds him for his foolishness, Alisa 
    agrees with her brother & Liu will converse about the situation & you are taken
    to your room how nice! when you can talk to Alisa then talk with Liu. Liu 
    leaves your party to rest so now select move & go to the bridge to hear a 
    dispatch after talk to Liu who will explain the ordeal you are facing. things 
    look grim... talk to Alisa to hear a genius plan to solve the problem. 
    Now we put it in to action! 
    Hatano digi-com base_______________________________________
    Here we pull up in the lorry for some infultration & Alisa & Liu take front 
    wing, oh damn the base is on red alert. Wanzer action here we go!
    Wanzers: Tank pilot + 4, Wanzer pilot JDF enemy  Enemy battle skills: None 
             Enemy weapon class:A                    Battle rating-* Easy
    Don't worry about your two Sekida trucks here it's not even armed anyway but it
    still appears as a unit so take that to mind, saying this though you don't have
    to protect it & you can still win should they be destroyed.
    After the aftermath Liu says you are being followed so lets haul butt outta 
    here, time for intermission so save & lets train Liu up a bit with 
    the simulator. Oh before I forget change your wanzers legs back instead of 
    havinghover parts because this will make life a lot eaiser for me & you! give 
    Kazuki Zenislev legs, Ryogo Kyojun Mk107 legs, Liu Jinyo Mk110 legs (if you 
    have them) & finally Alisa should get Meledyne M1 legs. Keep the Hover parts as
    we can sell or use them later. That done? Great then lets move on shall we?
    Your advance along the road is halted by a police checkpoint, oh great! good 
    old Liu to the rescue well sort of... just when we were getting cosy things 
    turn sour & yet again we are surrounded by the damn JDF! Liu gets the wanzers 
    ready & it looks like we are backing sides with the young female police officer
    in this fight, here we go!

    Aside from Liu Ryogo & Alisa you also have Miho the female police officer on 
    your side, try to protect her & she will in return deal damage to the enemy if 
    her wanzer is destroyed then don't worry you won't lose however to make this 
    fight easy you need all the help you can get. Alisa should use her missiles 
    while Liu can aim longrange as before. Miho will attack at random so aid her 
    with support fire with Ryogo & Kazuki on the closest chopper & take it from 
    there. Try to take out the choppers as quickly as you can as they pose a big 
    After the battle you will talk with Miho now save at the intermission shortly 
    Ashigara/ rest area_____________________________________________
    Here we take a break with Miho who also knows of the MIDAS bomb & she says 
    that's why the JDF attacked her, looks like we have been framed by the JDF too!
    anyway we will get those chumps yet, talk to Miho who wants to come with your 
    group but Liu has his objections. Talk to Liu & Kazuki will tell Liu that Miho 
    is coming with the group for her protection, Liu agrees & it's off we go. Miho 
    now joins your group!
    Numazu Harbour___________________________________________
    No rest for the wicked eh? the escape plan backfires & we gotta fight would you
    believe the JDF!

    Pick a team of four from your characters I'd reccomend for now you use your 
    default team & let Miho sit this one out because her shotgun isn't too great, 
    Take down those choppers they will cause you much frustration & more to the 
    point they are in the way!
    Well now thats over & done with it's time to meet our friends eh? save & train 
    little Miho a bit as well as change her parts & colour to your liking.also 
    check your e-mail. after the intermission there is a scene between Kuroi & 
    DHZ submarine______________________________________________
    You can have fun attempting to talk to Liu or you can do as he says & go to 
    your room which is the crew room. Talk to Miho & you will rest the night. Alisa
    has a dream actually more of a memory & is woken by Miho, Kasuki is on the 
    bridge so make your way there too. on to the Philippines we go! Say goodbye to 
    Japan for now....
                      ********THIS CONCLUDES THE JAPAN CHAPTER********
    Davao-Philippines/ rebel headquaters_______________________
    Liu will explain everything & then when you are ready talk to the commander 
    Bamarm twice then move to your new crew room quarters, here you can talk with 
    all your team so do so. Now when you are ready, move to go out in to the city 
    of Davao it's time we did some real shopping! visit the bar while you are at it
    to get a new website adress by talking to the business women (this is 
    automaticly added & you won't be notified so keep this in mind when you 
    converse with other people in future) Leave the bar & go to the city & enter 
    Davao shop. Whoops! did we come at a bad time? When the oppurtunity presents 
    itself talk to the snotty girl after the event, watch the tutorial on 
    purchasing & upgrades this will be very important to improve your wanzers HP, 
    accuracy, etc so take note if you are a novice player! Right now down to 
    business! select buy & choose a character & their wanzer now select what area 
    such as weapon you want to change on the wanzer upgrade Kazuki's shotgun on the
    right hand to SPPG 14 & on the left hand upgrade his melee weapon to fear fist 
    you may do as you please but this is a good setup to take either way get better
    weapons or parts here for the characters that need them especially Miho who you
    should give a better melee weapon & either a better shotgun like Kazuki's 
    reccomendation or give her a machine gun like Ryogo the choice is yours. Make 
    sure that before you leave the shop you also upgrade everyone's wanzers as much
    as possible & any parts you want upgrading hp & accuracy wise too this 
    DEFINATLY applies to Liu & Alisa who's accuracy could be better anyway make 
    sure you are fully prepared before you go, also don't bother upgrading all your
    parts that you have in stock because you waste more money pay direct attention 
    to your current wanzers status. Below I'll list what you can buy here so you 
    have a good idea of your options & how much each item & weapon costs. (note: if
    you need more money use simulator training to gain 300- 600 in prize money if 
    you complete the training.) One last thing make sure you buy & equip backpacks 
    to wanzers you want to carry items!

    Phew! Well when you are done here Leave the shop & head back to the Rebels 
    base, (now when you visit shops all the items & parts they sell are added to 
    the network & you can buy them at intermissions via network or where ever you 
    are! exept for in a battle of course) check your e-mail then you will discuss 
    your next mission with Liu, talk to Liu to listen to his plan. Well well the 
    girl you met in the shop shows up for what seems like idle banter part 2, ok 
    talk to Pham then to Bamarm to get their website & password BEFREE. Finally 
    talk to Liu to get going, your next destination is then set you are going to 
    Well we crash the plane & it looks like we have company well at least it isn't 
    the JDF, get ready for combat!
    Wanzers:Wanzer pilot PHF +6  Enemy battle skills:None Enemy weapon class-A*   
                                                          Battle rating- *Normal
    When you select your characters be sure to allot AP in to the slots so you can 
    take full advantage seeing as you just upgraded your wanzers, make sure you 
    have at least 14 AP to move around with you can check this by viewing how much 
    max AP the character has which is displayed for you so make sure you have at 
    least 14 or the very least 13 AP to conduct your moves. Also once you allot AP 
    to your defence you can change the damage your wanzer is resistant to by 
    pressing R1 or L1 when you select defence so select Anti-P (penetration)  for 
    this fight, also take in to account that if you are ejected from your wanzer or
     get out of it you will have to re-allot the AP again which isn't at all hard 
    so be aware. Now let's begin, take the wanzers out one by one but try to get 
    rid of the launcher wanzers first cause those rockets can hurt! Liu & Alisa 
    have the longest range (provided you gave Alisa a rocket launcher & Liu kept a 
    rifle weapon) & don't need to move far so use this to your advantage choose two
    other people either Kazuki & Ryogo or Miho to attack & pick off the nearby 
    targets. this isn't a tough battle as long as you got equipped back in Davao 
    If you have captured any wanzers here sell 'em we can get these wanzers later, 
    well their parts anyway. Save at intermission & you are done here. Lets moisey 
    SAM Missile base
    If you exeeded nine turns in the previous battle there will be more enemies 
    here so take this steady & don't rush the upcoming battle or you may die rather

             Enemy weapon class:-A*                        Battle rating:*Normal+
    The less of the gun turrets mounted on the platforms you have to deal with the 
    better take them out & finish the wanzers only after you take at least two of 
    the three gun turrets out. bring missiles for Alisa so she can deal  major 
    damage to them. The first Wanzers you should take out should be the one's with 
    the rocket launchers then eliminate the rest. On the plus side if there are 
    more enemies you will get more money so it isn't all bad. Use anti-P defence 
    for this battle.
    After the battle it's time to blow the place to smitherines ha, ha, that will 
    teach em! Save, restock your items & train if you like then it's time to press 
    on our assault wanzer style!

    A few simple enemys & 3 crap setup wanzers, no problem right? If there is 
    anything to watch out for it's only the three gun turrets & that's nothing a 
    couple of missiles can't take care of, the turrets do have rather long reach so
    don't get within their range, if you do simply move out of it as they can't 
    move around like the other units here.
    Well that was a piece of cake, Anyway HQ is doing bad on there side or so Liu 
    informs the group so we have to go meet up with them, Save then catch up on 
    your e-mail & away we go again!
    Negros fortress/Jungle

    Eh?! over all ready! Well at least we are looking good above all else so says 
    Liu agh but the ghosts! save your game now & lets continue on to victory... or 
    something like that.
    it's quiet... too quiet Tadahh! So the commander is ready to do battle at last 
    Wanzers: Manaro Felipe, Wanzer pilot PHF+5     Enemy battle skills:None   
                            Enemy weapon class:A*  Battle rating*Normal+
    Take out the main gun turrets by missile before they can cause any havock to 
    you, watch out for the main wanzers because some are equiped with a fear fist 
    that can cause heavy damage so use the battle skill Fast attack if you have 
    learned it it should activate so you don't recieve a counter attack. make 
    absolutly sure you bring repair kits & other aid items missiles etc to avoid 
    defeat. Also take out the damn pilot who likes to aid Manaro in the missile 
    frenzy otherwise you may lose more than just an arm or some legs! once the 
    major threats are out of the way (rocket launcher wanzers!) take down Manaro, 
    who won't be able to lay a finger on you at close range because the only 
    counter you can expect to recieve is a pitful hardblow! If you are having 
    difficulty give some wanzers a shield which can be bought from the network shop.
    Phew! Glad that's over & done with, Save & continue
    Negros command room___________________
    Looks like Pham has likened to us finally, talk to Bamarm now we commence our 
    next mammoth operation. when you next can, talk to Liu again & then we head 
    back to the DHZ submarine.
    DHZ submarine________________________
    Pham is eager to join the squad now so talk to her then talk to Liu, looks like
    we have to split our forces in two this time & uh... yes Pierre is coming too 
    well time to set sail!
    Dagat Ahas
    Watch the following scene that follows up with a battle.
    Wanzers: --  Enemy battle skills --  Enemy weapon class -- Battle rating*Normal
    For this battle you have to have Kazuki, Ryogo, Alisa & Miho so hopefully they 
    are all prepared. Right about this battle, the enemy don't even start in 
    wanzers so if you can kill them before they reach a wanzer this will be very 
    very easy indeed. Should a soldier board a wanzer it will be equiped with quite
    a high calibur shield so try not to let it happen. This isn't hard & you will 
    most likley get a platinum medal here.
    Save at Intermission & especially make sure Liu is prepared before going on to 
    the next mission! Also Pham has joined your squad now so give her another 
    weapon besides her cleave axe such as a machine gun also Pham's wanzer Zeros is
    quite stong too but put repair kits in her backpack too in any case make 
    effective preparation then proceed with the game.
    Meanwhile on Liu's side we are a little off our target but just as we are gonna
    go further we are ambushed, oh yeah like we didn't expect that!
    Wanzers: Wanzer pilot PHF+3         Enemy battle skills:None    
             Enemy weapon class-A**     Battle rating* Easy
    Here you have Pham, Liu, & Pierre. Pierre is NPC & will attack automaticly when
    & who he wants, he has a rocket launcher & a shotgun so he won't be completly 
    useless to you, you need to move on to the lift & I suggest you move both Liu &
    Pham to it first & end their turns so you can  then press the switch to make 
    the cargo lift go up. Move at least one square off from the cargo lift with 
    both Liu & Pham so you don't go back down on the lift again now take out the 
    lone wanzer at the top, once you have done this you now need to blow down the 
    red shutter with any weapon where there is a lone soldier armed with a grenade 
    launcher take him out & then smash down the next shutter on your next turn move
    over to take out the second wanzer, Don't worry about getting Pierre up on the 
    lift as you can take care of these wanzers with just Pham & Liu provided they 
    have good equipment. Liu will directly benefit from a shield if you can manage 
    it to reduce the damage he takes but you don't have to keep it just using it 
    for the remainder of the operation would be a good idea to save on repairing 
    his wanzer's parts all too often. Once you have destroyed the second wanzer 
    walk over to the blue light then have Liu step on the lift or snipe from the 
    top of the platform of the last remaining wanzer & after it's destroyed you 
    Liu makes contact with Kazuki then Save at intermission, Now we head for the 
    flight deck & are back with Kazuki's squad. 
    Flight Deck
    Face to face with the enemy! Kazuki's team gets ready for battle with no
    alternaive but to destroy the enemies before them to secure ground.
    Wanzers:WZR Pilot PHF+3, Chopper pilot+2    Battle skills:None     
            Enemy weapon class-A**              Battle rating*Normal+
    Watch out! two of the wanzers here have rifles that have long range they are 
    also anti- impact defence which means shotguns & melee weapons won't be as 
    effective against them, have Alisa take care of the two choppers while the 
    others eliminate the wanzers on the ground. The one soldier can be left till 
    the very end of this battle so pay him no mind. Once the two wanzers lose their
    rifles they are entirley helpless so you can then pick them off with ease.
    After the battle check out the cool music! you will be hearing a lot of it 
    later, now let's move & we are once again back with Liu's squad.
    Wanzers: WZR pilot PHF+3  Battle skill: none   Enemy weapon class:A**  
                                                   Battle rating*Normal
    Take out the wanzer & the soldier straight ahead then activate the lift to go 
    up, this lift can only hold one person at a time so if Pierre gets on let him 
    go up to do battle then send either Liu or Pham up to assist him. If Pierre 
    takes on too much damage aid him with a repair kit because he deals pretty high
    damage & is worth keeping alive at that. That's all really & Platinum medal is 
    guaranteed here unless you completly mess up.
    The bombs are set By Liu, then his unit retreats along with Kazuki's. Save & 
    when we resume we travel to Mindoro to set up camp.
    Mindoro camp ground______________________
    Here talk to Liu who talks with you about attacking Taal base, most of the 
    group think it's suicide but Liu informs everyone it won't be easy after this 
    Move to the hanger to get ready for the long haul, upgrade & buy more parts 
    such as Zeros & Genie. Here are the products & upgrade prices, using equip 
    after sale would be useful here too to trade in old weapons for reduced price

    If you have a lot of money upgrade some stock parts but again this can wait for
    now, anyway return to the main camp & tell Liu "you are ready" to leave the 
    main camp. before you go check your e-mail!

    Hey everyone I have an idea why not just let everyone know we are here to steal
    midas & raise the alarm, ... nice going Pham!

    Pierre helps again, provided Pham is in your squad for this battle & he will 
    prove quite useful just don't depend on too much from him.
    Huh?! who else could have been here? What?! they want MIDAS!!! Well let's save 
    & unravel Just what's going on heh heh Liu's turning in to a great commander 
    don't you think? forward march!
    Hey, Hey! what the hell's... The USN! well it's been a while oh look it's that 
    babe Cindy, oh right the walkthrough. Liu remebers these guys from before & so 
    does Kazuki it looks like we have to kick their butts all over again then.

    U.S.N. fight 2
    Wow these guys have buffed up! Seriously though they are armed with nasty 
    weapons & battle skills! you could work on them one at a time but the others 
    will sandwich you together which ain't good, so choose your best four from your
    squad & face each one on one here is who I pitted against each other.
    Kazuki vs Joe
    Liu vs Dennis
    Pham vs Cindy (Ahh but I like em both!)
    Alisa vs Gastor
    Pierre is also on hand so I guess you do have some back up for this battle come
    with repair kits & restore lo's just in case you lose a part & make sure you 
    have battle skills on everyone to turn the battle in your favour. This battle 
    will be harder if you haven't got to grips with the battle system yet but 
    saying all this I got a Platinum medal for this so you may not do bad at all 
    but don't underestimate the U.S.N. or at least not that babe Cindy he, he
    Save at intermission & do what you like until you feel ready to continue & get 
    back to the action!
    Taal base/Heliport
    Ahhh nice fresh air & everything is peaceful, well kinda.... Kazuki blows the 
    lock on the door & that's when our trouble's start oh boy!

    Alisa is out of action for this battle so those choppers can only be taken down
    from close range unless someone has another rocket launcher, but you will have 
    Liu who's range will make up for Alisa's absence in this battle. I find this 
    battle rather annoying because the Hannigers always use missiles & they are 
    ussually too far out of range for you to counter attack unless you are Liu, If 
    only for this battle I would advise replacing your Melee weapons with shields 
    so you don't get put at a major disadvantage. There are also cannons mounted on
    platforms to left & right of you starting position so if possible avoid them 
    because if they do hit it can cause a fair amount of damage.
    I don't know about you but that battle was a load of crap! & on top of it all 
    damn annoying, well nevermind Liu tries to reactivate the door then... we 
    follow Kazuki heh.
    Taal base/Research facility
    Alisa! Who the? hm oh that guy it's just Lukav everyone, come on Kazuki let's 
    kick his damn ass! well looks like he got away but only for now, we have to 
    stop MIDAS getting away! Oh shit the plane! Jose huh? put yer dukes up pal.
    Wanzers: Jose, OCU Hanniger, Tank pilot OCU+2, WZR pilot OCU+2    
    Enemy battle skills: None   Enemy weapon class-B      Battle rating*Easy
    Best take those choppers down first then you can really do as you please 
    because Jose doesn't have any battle skills so he isn't that much of a worry to
    you but in Emma's story he has the ROFUPII battle skill. You may even manage 
    platinum here & on that note there isn't much more to say about this battle.
    After coming all this way we fail?! Damn! well let's save & continue our next 
    plan of action. Also before going on do some rounds of the simulator
    Here you witness an FMV of the awsome destructive power of the MIDAS bomb, Liu 
    heads full speed ahead for Batangas. When you arrive the city is in ruins..... 
    You also meet Emma again here oh & that damn Lukav who seems smug with the 
    bomb's destructive capabilities. When you are presented with a choice of what 
    to do talk to Alisa & Emma oh alright Emir will call Alisa by her real name 
    Aliciana, then you see an FMV showing how Alisa knows Emma & this also explains
    some of her past. Then after Lukav tells you of a shocking truth (The bastard! 
    I can't stand this guy!) talk to Emma then Liu will tell you we now need to 
    escape the Philipines. Talk to Liu to head to the bar, he tells the group to 
    head to the ambassador of Ravnui for help so our new target is DHZ lands. Talk 
    with all your party & especially save first, you will see why in a minute. Then
    talk with the people in the bar & get ready. This new nemesis Serov will prove 
    to be a real freak, Kazuki runs out to do battle & Liu & co follow up. Serov is
    outside & is obviously insane so we need to bring him down for good!
    Wanzers: Serov, WZR pilot OCU+4  Enemy battle skills:None  Enemy weapon class-B

    Nasty battle here, Serov has many weapons here such as rockets & a machine gun 
    & a grenade launcher! firstly make sure you dispose of as many wanzers as you 
    can, don't worry if you don't take them all out cause you will have some rather
    unexpected help there. If you haven't taken out many wanzers by turn 7 or 8 
    then Serov goes insane & yes he even attacks his own allies! this he ussually 
    does until they die or until your squad's wanzers are the only one's left. when
    attacking Serov & you defeat him something a little wierd happens, he instantly
    gains 500 hp back on his body! I call that cheating but guess there isn't much 
    we can do about it so surround him & finish him off for good, Damn maniac! 
    Whoever deafeats Serov after his regenaration will gain massive & I mean 
    massive weapon exp well 774 exp to be exact!
    After the battle listen to Serov banter on about crap all then see him get 
    turned in to southern fried chicken as his wanzer gets blown to bits by Liu! Is
    ... Liu hiding something... Nah he wouldn't do that right? Anyhow Pham's luxery
    transport comes to the rescue & we take to the air just in time! But Pierre 
    stays behind to protect Pham...... Save & check your mail, let's move on....
    Poor Pham, Kazuki gets mad when Alisa is talked about in conversation but Alisa
    is fine with it. Meanwhile anti- aircraft missiles are approching & we have a 
    major crisis at hand! No! we're going down. Liu has some witty sarcasm with 
    Kazuki but Kazuki's having none of it so we jump off in our combat ready 
    wanzers. Now prepare to meet your new neighbors in this country, the Hua Lian 
    rebels! Gulp maybe not.

    First of all don't group your wanzers together! The reason for this is that the
    tank like crab wanzer has a grenade launcher that can hit all of the wanzers 
    within quite a wide area range, be careful as some of the wanzers use a melee
    spike weapon that can stun your team. Missiles are recommended along with two
    of your team with fire armour, & the other two using impact. There are also
    various trees in place & you can tactically use these to reduce the enemy's
    chances of hitting you with a rifle, machine gun, or shotgun. This tactic
    will help you survive future battles so don't forget to use the environment
    to your advantage! With most of the wanzer rebels take them down one by one
    this will later allow you to focus your full attention on the crab wanzer..
    Phew, to hell with that! Now let's save & make out for Jilong base
    Jilong base
    Meet with commander Han who looks like an alien I must say, you learn that our 
    old friends the U.S.N are on the move talk to Han once again then after talk to
    your "real" commander Liu to find that we our meeting someone who is of real 
    help, Thank god! At the bar talk to Man in a brown suit this guy is Clay who is
    ... wait ambassador for the U.S.N.! oh that's ok he's a spy as luck would have 
    it, talk to Clay then after talk to him for a third time to recieve the Taal 
    base mission in the battle simulator. Leave the bar to come out in the city of 
    Taipei, yes that's right head for the shop before going anywhere else.
    Taipei shop
    Kazuki's pretty pissed off but Ryogo's still as happy as a bean. Right after 
    the initial chat, get down to shopping for new weapons, re-stock you know the 
    drill also you can buy level 3 upgrades for your wanzer here! I would highly 
    reccomend you still keep Kazuki in a Zenislev but it is up to you, be sure to 
    buy the new computers but choose COMB554 as I will explain the benefits later. 
    Also you can purchase the first flamethrower here which can do extra damage at 
    the cost of more AP. Don't feel the need to buy & upgrade everything at once 
    because we can buy stuff later on the network terminal, Happy shopping!

    Oh crap! curse you money maker! Han schemes & decides not to send back up
    Taipei suberbs
    Oh my is it? yes it really is! ohhh Cindy & the.. oh the U.S.N. I don't think 
    they will just retreat do you? nah didn't think so either, here we go again!

    Enemy weapon class:B**                         Battle rating*Hard
    U.S.N. fight 3
    Gastor & Joe pack quite a punch with those max weights as their main melee 
    weapons sometimes taking off 300-400 HP of damage from your wanzers! They are 
    the biggest threats so eliminate them fast, Dennis & Cindy really don't have 
    much that can pose major damage to you because if you take out their main arms 
    where their weapons are mounted they are helpless & like most enemies in this 
    situation they will skip their turn or try a crap hard blow, If Alisa has 
    multiple panic shots there is a good chance that when she fires her missiles 
    she will launch several panic shots in a row thus destroying a major part of 
    Joe or Gastor's wanzer. Then it becomes eaisier to immobolize them for the 
    battle. For this battle come with anti-impact defence to reduce the damage Joe 
    & Gastor dish out also having the battle skill fast attack will improve your 
    chances of attacking without receiving a counter attack
    Back to base we go! oh what joyful bliss.... Save at intermision & we return 
    once again to Jilong base.
    Jilong base
    We have to go through the tunnels of Futai to get to the DHZ which isn't good 
    as Liu explains, you are then back in town but if you have done what was 
    required here before return to base to start the next mission. Talk to Liu once
    you return then tell him you are ready to go, after Han is scheming again 
    can't he just go back to Mars or something? Anyway on to Futai tunnel your 
    weapon class should be at least B** or beyond by now. 
    Futai tunnel
    Wow, nice going Liu! that armoured train is sure to come in handy uh company?

    The difficulty now starts to crank itself up in Alisa's story & this battle has
    no exeption because most of your enemy's not including Marcus have rifles! Use 
    the armoured train as you have one now so you might as well put it to use, if 
    you decide to pilot the train you will need to get out of your wanzer by using 
    eject but make sure you are right next to the train so you are not left wide 
    open on the battle field & can get straight in to the train. The train is armed
    with missiles & grenades I think, it also has a machine gun. Pass a turn & wait
    for the wanzers to come to you & If Kazuki has double assult with a shotgun or 
    machine gun & a melee weapon in hand you are likley to take out both an enemy 
    wanzer's arms. Marcus won't make a move right away so don't head straight for 
    him because you can finish him off after you've used a few missile's from the 
    train. Note that the train will still take on damage & it's probally a good 
    idea to use anti-penetration defence on it & Allot most if not all your AP in 
    to it providing you have over 15- 20 AP to spare for lauching the attacks & 
    moving, counter attcking etc. If you capture many of the grapple M1 wanzers I 
    would keep one to use the parts then sell any additional one's for about 2000- 
    4300 cash depending on what upgrades it had. This fight may take you a few 
    tries but take your time & you will be victorious. 
    That takes care of that! Do the usual at intermision & we charge down that 
    tunnel but Hault! More fun loving U.S.N.

    This is pretty much the same as before but the enemy will try to surround you 
    in less turns than before plus most are again armed with rifles. Having
    Missiles is an a good option but usually if the enemy is within your missile
    range, then you will also be within rifle range! Play this battle carefully
    & try to anticipate the enemy moving to postions out of your reach.
    Well there is light at the end of the tunnel then, Let's move people! What 
    awaits us in the DHZ? Nobody knows. actually Liu knows but you will see what I 
    mean later.

    Whoah! Now report back to Liu at the supply base for your new orders.
    So the old fart wants to fight, fine by me I hate the Hua Lain to hell by now 
    anyway. Let's finish this!
    Wanzers: Yu, WZR pilot HR rebels+2 tanks   Enemy battle skills: None 
                 Weapon class:C                Battle rating*Easy
    This is quite an easy battle to tell you the truth, as most of your enemies 
    here are tanks that don't present any real challange to take down. Take out the
    two wanzers before anything else & deal with Yu last so you can surround him 
    for an easy take down. Yu does have a powerful Melee attack but that is really 
    all he has going for him.
    Lan arrives & I'm only too happy to oblige by what she says, the RRF destroy 
    Suichuan reducing it to ashes, well our job's done here anyway save & let's 
    continue. The e-mail for Liu here is a virus, from moneymaker it's your choice 
    whether you read it but it won't make any difference because nothing can result
    from it only a short conversation with Liu & Miho.
    Wan'an/supply base
    Lan comes in to the supply base rather angry, talk to the soldier then to Lan. 
    Now you must leave the supply base for a while so do so, now head to the bar 
    for a chat with your team members. next talk to Wei then Kaszuki follow in 
    pursuit! Talk to Wei in the empty house for some very shocking & quite 
    disturbing infomation...... Wei then gets away. Return to Liu.
    Watch the cool scenes that unfold here & we are flung in to battle yet again!
    Wanzers: Zhuwen, HR rebels+4, chopper +3    Enemy battle skills:None        
                     Enemy weapon class:C       Battle rating*Hard              
    I am really sick of these guys now & I thought the JDF were bad, the choppers 
    are armed with machine guns but most of the wanzers here including Zhuwen are 
    armed with rifles so they kind of have the advantage but you do have a armoured
    car left over so use it if things get rough but it would be best to use it with
    someone who has a high weapon class with missiles or machine guns. If it is
    possible eliminate the threat of the Choppers A.S.A.P
    After the battle we are saved by the Wulong! These guys are cool seriously & 
    later on in the secrets section I'll tell you how to get thier wanzers for 
    yourself! Anyway enjoy as Chang's jaw drops to the floor & the cowardly rebels 
    withdraw! Rudolf does the introductions & you have some new allies but they 
    won't join forces with you just yet. Liu knows these guys quite well & the 
    centepide take us directly to Tian Lei... for a fee of course, don't worry 
    everyone Liu's footing the bill! heh.
    After the drop off thanks to Rudolf & co we arrive on the Tianlei only to be 
    scolded by Lan, Jiu talks to Liu about something suspicious. Now head to your 
    room to rest. Liu talks about an imaginary number & you meet the rather strange
    Jared in the hallway, now go to crew room. Just as we get comfy the alarm is 
    raised & no Ryogo it's not time for lunch just yet! Grrr Hua lain idiots!
    Wanzers: Chang, HR rebels+5  Enemy battle skills:None   Enemy weapon class:C***
                                                            Battle rating*Medium
    You do have some rather handy missile support from the launchers on the Tianlei
    & they attack after all your allies have had their turn.
    The Imaginary numbers show up for clean up & it's time to aid the R.R.F, 
    no rest? oh bummer. By the way if you e-mail moneymaker after reading Alisa's 
    e-mail Alisa can win the beauty pageant but it's up to you, if you want to win 
    pay 500 cash to moneymaker. ^_^
    Why am I not surprised... surley you can guess who shows up here?!
    Wanzers: HR rebels+6       Enemy battle skills:None     Enemy weapon class:C***
                                                            Battle rating*Hard
    After the battle you encounter Lan again then at intermission save & resume 
    your game.
    Brutal going's on here.... the Tianlei tramples over all in it's way too, 
    Kazuki is having none of it but a shot stops him in his tracks. a young boy is 
    seriously injured & shouts for help so Lan to the rescue then. Jared warns Lan 
    & Kazuki but Liu steps in & tells the coldblood unit to pull out. Lan's wanzer 
    falls to the ground which prompts the end of this scene.
    Tianlei infirmary
    Here Kwang talks with Alisa about the rebels, then talk to him again & Jiu 
    arrives & orders Kwang's treatment to stop then Alisa is thrown out of the 
    Tianlei crew room
    Alisa is pretty down & Liu tells of what will happen to Kwang now he has been 
    captured, then talk to Alisa & Liu get's rather mad & Miho hatches a rather 
    risky plan to save Kwang. The scene then shifts to the brig where Lan is 
    prisoner because she won't kill Kwang, Miho is on the bridge with Alisa to 
    disable the security. meanwhile Kazuki, Pham, & Ryogo need to take the inner 
    elevator to go outside but.....
    Wanzers: Shangdi 1 +3, Wude 3 + 2, Battle skills:None    Enemy weapon class-C**
                                       Battle rating*Very Hard
    Stupid, stupid fight here because we have reduced numbers for battle which 
    isn't that bad right? but when you are out numbered by at least 3 wanzers that 
    have melee weapons that's when you die
    Ah now we find out where Liu is, why didn't you say before Miho!!! After the 
    scenes you assume control of Lan so talk to Kwang in the brig. Then after 
    Miho's blabbing we save Lan & Kwang so talk to Lan to escape. get ready to face
    more auto piloted wanzers!
    Wanzers: Shangdi 1 +4, Wude 3 +2
    Lan-w.rank -E, Alisa, Ryogo, Kazuki, Pham 
    This may be a tough fight alright, but to level the playing fields Lan
    is also assisting in this fight with her weapon rank of E no less!!!
    Save at intermission then resume & Lan destroys Ryogo's wanzer! this was the 
    plan right. then we go from Chongyan to Wuhan!
    Wuhan supply base
    After the convosation ends select go out to get ready for the trip to Shanghai.
    Yep head straight for the shop unless you want to visit the bar but there isn't
    much there anyway, In the Wuhan shop HP upgrades of level 4 are now avalible so
    upgrade & buy what you can. Other than the level 4 HP upgrade there is nothing 
    major abot the Wuhan shop in the way of weapons.
