                               WALKTHROUGH
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The game begins at an USN Alaska radiation laboratory base. A panzer and a freight hauler 
blast their way out of the base with a large container. The USN base forces spring into action, 
but a quickly cut down by bomber. A carrier arrives and picks up the container and takes off. 
This FMV is the coolest Front Mission FMV I have ever seen!
   The game starts at Kirishima Heavy Industries testing facility where Kazuki Takemura is 
testing a panzer. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first menu that will pop up will be a name menu(?). There are 5 selections. They are all 
different types of Japanese writing (Kanji, etc..). Choose the last one to just enter the game 
with the default name (Kazuki). 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mission 1 

 
     Your Units : 1
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Attackers
 
     Notes:
      
     1.) This mission is just a tutorial mission split up into 2 sections. The first is part is 
     attacking a single panzer. The panzer does not fight back, so its quick and easy.
     2.) The second half is attacking another panzer that fights back. It is pretty easy as 
     well. It all just gets you familiar with the weapon systems which are almost exactly like 
     previous Front Mission games.
      

You will next be talking to another pilot, Ryogo and the testing engineer in the office after 
the mission when 2 options will appear. Here you choose which storyline to play. You have an 
option to play 2 different ones. Choose the first one and you will play the story line with 
Ema. Choose the second one to play the story line with Kazuki's sister Alisa.  Once you have 
chosen it is easy to tell which one you picked. If Ryogo looks amused, you picked Ema's. If he 
looks mad, you picked Alisa's storyline. 

This is Alisa's Storyline......
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 2

The group travels to Japan to deliver the new panzers to Japanese Self Defense Force in 
Yokosuka. As the panzers are debarking a huge explosion rock the place. Kazuki and Ryogo set 
off to investigate but are quickly brought to a stop when 2 enemy panzers block their way. The 
enemy units are ordered to attack!
 
     Your Units : 2
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Attackers
 
     Notes:
      
     1.) Gang up and attack one of these units at a time. It will be quicker and easier to 
     destroy them.
      
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 3
 
After Ryogo and Kazuki are released after questioning they leave the building to see a convoy 
of trucks moving some strange items. Kazuki is suspicious so he gets in a truck and he and 
Ryogo follow the convoy. Kazuki spots his sister Alisa. Just as the two had met some USN 
panzers emerge and attempt to take Alisa hostage. Ryogo and Kazuki get in their panzes to gstop 
them.

                             2 Attackers            2 Fighters
 
     Notes:
      
     1.) This level ends early when sirens go off and the USN group splits as panzers show up. 
     They new panzers think your group is part of the enemy and start to attack you, but at the 
     last moment a semi pulls up and you escape in the nick of time!

located underground in the base. The center of the base is gone! Something blew it up in the 
perfect shape of a sphere. That is what the group heard when they got off the helicopter in

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 44

This mission finds the group making their way through an underground passage. Ryogo is on foot 
and he needs to activate the elevator platform in order to get the rest of the group up a steep 
wall.
  
     Your Units : 4 (1 on foot)
     Enemy Units:
                       3 Attackers                2 Attackers (w/o Panzes)
                       1 Fighter                  2 Missilers
     Notes:
 
     1.) First off, you cannot loose Ryogo in this battle.
     2.) Have him move and end his turn standing next to the big gray platform/box/computer. He 
     has to be inbetween the box and the wall. At the end of his turn he can activate the 
     elevator. The bottom selection is the "activate elevator" action.
     3.) Don't have him attack (or counter attack) the attackers that are on foot near the box. 
     This will increase his chances of surviving.
     4.) Once the others are on the same level as Ryogo, have one of your team go help him and 
     keep him alive. Move Ryogo back out of the way and leave him there for the rest of the 
     battle.

     Enemy Units:
                            5 Attackers          2 Missilers
     Notes:
 
     1.) When you reach the top of the platforms you must use the platform elevator in order to 
     go higher. Have one of your people exit their Panzer and stand on the little gray area on 
     the platform elevator. The bottom choice is to active the elevator. I suggest taking care 
     of all the other units before you move up.

     Notes:
 
     1.) In this mission you start out on foot and need to get in the enemy units that are 
     standing on the field.
     2.) Wait until all the characters can get into their machines all at the same time. Then 
     go for it! This is a tough level.

     Your Units : 4
     Enemy Units:
                            8 Attackers
     Notes:
 
     1.) 2 of the attackers have cannons so be careful and don't bunch up.
     2.) Once you defeat the boss, she escapes and bombs the place!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 57

The group starts their escape from the base. The enemy stops their egress.

     Your Units : 5 (1 Truck NPC)
     Enemy Units:
                            5 Attackers            1 Missiler

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 58

The island is not what it seems! The group continues the into the base.

     Your Units : 4
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Helicopters          3 Missilers
                       
     Notes:
 
     1.) This was (to me) the most difficult level of the game simply because of the time it 
     takes. 
     2.) The pistons change position every turn and this makes it impossible for some panzers 
     to move much. Take only 2 legged panzers on this mission.
     3.) I suggest also saving the level (in the "in game' save slot) right after you start 
     this level. I had to restart this level more than 4 times and and I could have saved a lot 
     of time if I had saved at the very beginning of the level instead of having to go through 
     all the dialogue before the mission.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 59

The group reaches the core of the base and the MIDAS bomb is gone! Alisa sees her sister Ema 
sitting down near the core. Something has happened to her. Ema is devoid of emoition, she has 
been tortured by the enemy. They have gotten the secret of the MIDAS bomb out of her and all is 
left is an empty shell. This is sooooo sad!

     Your Units : 4
     Enemy Units:
                            7 Attackers
                        

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 60 

The MIDAS bomb has been activated! The group tries to get over Ema's horrible condition while 
they attempt to find a way off the island. Alisa spots a ship and they all set out to get in it 
and get out of there before the bomb explodes. Before they can escape the ship gets stuck and 
enemy units show up. Localf is there with his nasty looking Panzer for this final battle!
 
     Your Units : 4
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Fighters          3 Attackers
                            1 Missile (Localf)                        
     Notes:
 
     1.) Move you units back. You start out too close to all the enemy units. Back off to the 
     othe side of the ship. It will make taking out the enemy a little easier. Good luck!
     2.) Ut oh, it looks like Localf is not quite finished...
      

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The group escapes the island and head pell mell out to sea to try to avoid the explosion. But 
all the sudden the wounded Localf shows up and starts to take his rage out on the ship! kazuki 
comes up on desk to try to finish him off but is cought in Localf's fury! Kazuki's last attempt 
to stop Localf works just as the MIDAS explosion takes place!!!!! What happens????!!! Well you 
will just have to see..............
