2)Version History
===============================

03/7/2003: Version Final
--This will be the last update for this FAQ for sure; I can't see anything more
I could add to this even if I tried. ^^; I hope you'll enjoy reading this as
much as I did writing it; albeit I'll need to take a long break before I even
think about writing another again. It's unfortunate to go out on such a sombre
note, but hopefully that'll just give me motivation to start again later! So
once again, see you soon!

--What I've Done--
-Added A Special Note.
-Added a little bit about translations to the Introduction.
-Added Takeru and Sabaras to the Pilot Seishin/Skill List.
-Modified the walkthrough for mission 38 and 39 slightly, and made little
changes in several other places..
-Confirmed Takeru and added a bit more info about Barns in the Secrets section.
-Added a crapload of Miscellanous Notes.
-Added a couple of credits.

22/6/2003: Version 1.0
--Well, it doesn't matter if I'm two days early, does it? ^^; This update marks
the completion of the walkthrough; now there are only a few things here and
there to add, although there's a good chance I might not, since I've gotten
downright sick of Alpha 2 while writing this FAQ. ^^; If anyone wants to send
me the information I'm lacking, I'll include it and give the appropriate
credits. For now though, this is likely the last update to this FAQ; I hope
you've enjoyed my labour of love, and maybe, MAYBE I'll see you again come SRW
Destiny. ^^;

--What I've Done--
-Finished Arad's walkthrough.
-Went through the Walkthrough section and corrected several mistakes and
inconsistencies in them.
-Changed the method to get Star GaoGaiGar in the Secrets section, and added a
highly unconfirmed Barns and Totouga.
-Added Arad and Zeora to the Pilot Skill/Seishin List.

--What I've Still To Do--
-Find Takeru and Sahara's Skills, Seishins and Squad Leader Skill, as well as
Barns if he is truly a recruitable character.
-Confirm Takeru, and Barns and Totouga.

15/6/2003: Version 0.85
--I've been busy, but not too busy to finish up Kusuha's walkthrough and do
some more work elsewhere. I've also got all of Arad's mission data down, now I
just have to work on mission notes for them and this FAQ can be officially
declared complete. My projected completion date: 24th June.

--What I've Done--
-Finished Kusuha's walkthrough.
-Found out the translation for the Brain Powered skill. DAMN that was obvious.
^^;
-Added a note about rough terrain penalties and how to get around them in the
Squad System section.
-Added Jonathan, Quincy, Shira, Richter, Hainel, Kusuha and Bullet to the Pilot
Skill/Seishin list, as well as adding a note about the seishin of main
characters.
-Added the Psychic Field to the Robot Skill List.
-Modified the methods of receiving several secrets, as well as adding the
Crossbone Gundam X2, Richter and Hainel, Takeru, and the GP-02's Nuclear
Bazooka to the Secrets section, which should officially complete that section.

28/05/2003: Version 0.66
--It figures that I'd forget SOMETHING while putting in this update. Never ever
try and keep track of several documents in one walkthrough at once.

--What I've Done--
-Added Ivis's scenarios 31 and 37
-Modified Scenario 34 Moon route and Scenario 35 Axis route
-REALLY added Jeeg's last seishin. ^^;

28/05/2003: Version 0.65
--Whew, this update came faster than I expected. Holidays really help in
blasting through games. Additionally, it's my Birthday today, so you'd better
be appreciative that you even got any update today, eh? ^^;

--What I've Done--
-Finished Ivis's walkthrough, and added real and super-specific scenarios.
-Formatted the walkthrough more to fit the other characters in.
-Standardized the date settings for the Version History. Oopsie. ^^;
-Added Jeeg's last seishin, as well as Ivis, Tsugumi, Suray and Commander
Kidogar to the Pilot Skill/Seishin List.
-Realized I've been spelling "Croquette" wrong all the while. ^^;

--What I'll Do Next--
-Kusuha Walkthrough.
-Confirm GP-02 for characters besides Arad.

17/05/2003: Version 0.50
--Well, less than a week, as it seemed. Also finally put what I wanted into the
Squad System section, and added in some of the unknown seishin for existing
pilots in the Pilot Seishin/Skill list. Now the only things that remain
uncomplete are the Seishin/Skill list and the walkthrough, and perhaps a few
secrets...

--What I've Done--
-Finished Zengar's walkthrough.
-Formatted the walkthrough to accomodate for the other characters.
-Added the missing seishin for Synapse, Hasalov and Kanan, and added Radora to
the list.

--What I'll Do Next--
-Ivis walkthrough.

11/05/2003: Version 0.29
--More walkthrough. Should be able to finish up Zengar in a week, hopefully.

--What I've Done--
-Did Zengar's walkthrough up to mission 47.

08/05/2003: Version 0.28
--And the walkthrough slowly trudges on. The thing is that I actually have the
raw data for most of the stages already; I'm just usually lazy to actually
write up notes for them. ^^;

--What I've Done--
-Added more secrets to the Secret list: Hi Nu Gundam, Dorel Rona, Nightingale
as an enemy, FA ZZ Gundam and Pizza.
-Did Zengar's walkthrough up to scenario 38.
-Added a few new pilots to the Pilot Skill/Seishin list: Bundol, Kuttnel,
Kelknuckle and Pizza.

04/05/2003: Version 0.27
--Just another little update. You may see a lot of these little updates coming
thick and fast now, depending.

--What I've Done--
-Confirmed the method to get ZZ Gundam's Hi Mega Cannon (Full Power).
-Added Musashi's information to the Pilot Skill/Seishin List.
-Did Zengar's walkthrough up to mission 31.

29/04/2003: Version 0.26
--Okay, so I lied. ^^; Exams ARE still on, I just love procrastinating
studying for them. Go me?

--What I've Done--
-Did Zengar's walkthrough up to mission 25.
-Added a few more secrets.
-Changed some more translations.

04/20/2003: Version 0.21
--Just a teeny little update for now. Exams are coming thick and fast soon, so
don't expect many, if any, updates between now and early May.

--What I've Done--
-Did Zengar's walkthrough up to mission 13.
-Fixed a few typos and errors here and there.
-Added Nu Gundam HWS to the Secrets, which I forgot about before.

--What I've to Do--
-That embarassingly-empty Squad System section.
-Walkthrough.

15/04/2003: Version 0.2
--Don't you just love the flu? It gets me off school to work on this FAQ, after
all. For those who are wondering why I didn't start on Arad's walkthrough
first, it's because I realized Zengar's the only character who doesn't yet have
a walkthrough in progress on GameFAQs, excepting the message board one. ^^;

--What I've Done--
-Added Pilot Skill/Seishin List. Uncomplete, still a few missing seishin. Arad
and Zeora also not put up, because I used a different birthday for Arad than
the default one, so some seishin or skills might not be the same.
-Changed some translations in the Seishin List and Pilot Skill List.
-Added Items List.
-Added first 4 stages of Zengar's route, and a bit of stage 5.
-Changed Game Mechanics to Squad System, since that's pretty much all I'll
cover there when I get to it. ^^;
-Added another credit.

--What I've To Do--

-Squad System explanation.
-Find out the proper translation for several Pilot Skills.
-More Walkthrough.
-Find out the Seishin I missed for the Pilot Seishin/Skill List.

11/04/2003: Version 0.11
~Garrr, accidentally submitted this as a Pilot FAQ, since I forgot to change
some of the text up there. Silly me. ^^;

--What I've Done--
-Added Pilot Skills.
-Added Robot Skills.
-Added some Secrets, far from complete though.

--What I've To Do--
-Once again, nearly anything else. As a particular plea, can anyone tell me
the proper names for the pilot skills of most Gaiking pilots, and all Brain
pilots? Those are the ones I have no real idea about.

--What Will _LIKELY_ Be Done Next Update--

-Seishin and Skill List by Pilot
-Game Mechanics

10/04/2003: Version 0.1
~First release of this walkthrough. Lots missing and exams coming up. Makes
me wonder why I even started this. ^^; Most of what I've done has been taken
from my Super Robot Wars Original Generation FAQ and modified to fit Alpha 2's
engine, so if you read my previous FAQ, you may note some similarities.

--What I've Done--
-Added Seishin List.
-Added Pilot Points System.
-Add Miscellanous Notes.

--What I've To Do--
-Everything else, pretty much. :b Sections besides the walkthrough probably
take priority, since they take less time to finish.


===============================
3)A Special Note
===============================


On June 27th 2003, the Super Robot Taisen community lost a well-respected and
knowledgable member. In the early morning of that fateful Friday, Tony Green,
better known as Dragoon T on the internet, took his own life. He was 21 years
old. Just 3 days earlier, he himself had messaged me with several corrections
for my FAQ which I duly implemented; never in my wildest dreams could I imagine
that he would have a reason to do such a thing.

However, what is done is done, and the mourning for the loss of a cherished
friend cannot last forever. And as I send this update to GameFAQs, I also
subsequently dedicate this FAQ/Walkthrough for Super Robot Taisen Alpha 2 to
Dragoon T. May you soul rest in peace, and may you be happy wherever you are.


===============================
4)Introduction
===============================


Super Robot Wars Alpha 2 is the 3rd games in the Alpha timeline, following on
the path made by Super Robot Wars Alpha and Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden.
From the very start, it was obvious that the proper sequel would have a huge
weight to carry; Super Robot Wars Alpha was the first Super Robot Wars game
for the Playstation, and was a massive jump in graphical and audio power over
the Super Famicom versions of the game. Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden only
carried the torch further, with one of the best storylines in a Super Robot
Wars game to date, and began the transition from what was a game that basically
advertised the robots it featured, to one which weaved a massive encompassing
story featuring the robots, rather than prioritizing them. Alpha Gaiden also
introduced the Support System for the first time, a gameplay mechanic that
would be used in every Super Robot Wars game after.

With all the superlatives thrown at the aforementioned two games, the burden
the sequel carries looks very large indeed, but Banpresto has taken the burden
and converted it into a beautiful statue of Mazinger. Ever since the first
few Famitsu magazine pages came out, it was apparent that this game was going
to be something very big, something that could alter the direction of the Super
Robot Wars series forever. The carried-over storyline, including two of the
original's protagonists, the percentage upgrading system, the entirely new and
extremely fluid battle animations, and most of all, the Squad System; the first
step in making Super Robot Wars a truly tactical series.

From the first magazine scans, to the two promotional videos, to the weekly
revelations, it was obvious that this was the most anticipated Super Robot Wars
game for a long time, and now, it has finally been released. Following up on
my Pilots FAQ on Super Robot Wars Original Generation, I will now attempt to
write a more general one for the masses of Super Robot Wars fans. Quite a bit
of this FAQ will be taken from my SRWOG FAQ, since the mechanics between the
two games are somewhat similar.

However, a word of warning. Although I plan to include just about every
trimming you could think of, the walkthrough itself will probably not be very
detailed. This is due to my weak grasp of the Japanese language; don't expect
a full translation of every scene in the game from this FAQ. What you will
find in the walkthrough, however, is a detailed explanation of how to beat
every scenario in the game, trouble spots, APs for every stage, and everything
I feel accomplished enough to do. If you are looking for a full translation, I
suggest waiting for someone more skillful than me to do so. Consequently,
translations of names will not be exact, so please do not email me on name
corrections.

After all that talk, I'll now begin the journey. I hope you find this FAQ
useful.


===============================
5)Seishin List
===============================


Seishins are the very core of Super Robot Wars games; I frequently shake my
head in disbelief at stories of people somehow getting far into Super Robot
Wars games without even knowing that these nifty little commands exist. They
are the rough equivalent of a magic spell; you cast a seishin before you move
or attack, and it can do anything from increasing your move range to doubling
your experience for your next attack. The use of seishins is far more
pronounced in Alpha 2 than in any other game, due to the massive amount of
pilots you sortie per mission, making support seishins that much more useful.

You use seishins by selecting the second-from-bottom option on a squad's menu
when you press A on the squad. You can then use the L1 and R1 buttons to scroll
through all the units in the Squad and their seishin, or the L2 and R2 buttons
to scroll through sub-pilots in certain robots, and selecting the seishin you
want to use. A list of all the seishins your currently deployed pilots have can
also be seen by selecting the 2nd option after clicking on a square without a
squad during battle, or the third-from-bottom option in the main menu. The
seishin in this list will be arranged by the way they are shown in this table,
read like a book (left to right, up to down).


-----------------------------
Row 1
-----------------------------


Nekketsu (Hot Blood) : For one attack, the pilot's next attack does 2x damage.
Obviously a popular spell for most Squad Leaders, it's almost a must when
facing high-HP enemies especially when aiming for turn-based or HP-based APs.
Also makes a good combo with ALL or MAP attacks, since you're hitting several
units for double damage.

Hichuu (Sure Hit) : For one turn. Hit rate is 100%. Mostly used by Supers who
have trouble hitting boss-level enemies, or by low-level pilots when trying to
get up to everyone else's level, or Squad members who don't have much else use
for their SP other than to get a small hit in. Flash takes precedence, however.

Shinrai (Trust) : Heals 2000 HP of any non-enemy unit on the map. This is
mostly used only for helping NPCs in the few missions you have them.
Otherwise, it's best used on Reals, whose low HP makes this spell economically
wise. In general though, Friendship has this seishin beat for most
circumstances, since this seishin can only heal one unit at a time.

Tekagen (Mercy) : For one attack. If this attack reduces the enemy's HP to 0,
and your pilot has a higher Skill stat the the enemy pilot, the enemy's unit
will survive with 10 HP. This spell will be mostly used to help level up any
weak pilots, by letting a high-level pilot lower an enemy unit to 10 HP, then
having the weak pilot run in and finish the enemy unit off with a high
accuracy attack, as the lowest damage you can do in all SRW games is 10 HP.
Also useful for stages where the objective is to lower a unit past a certain
amount without actually killing it, for added insurance.

Kakuran (Confusion) : For one turn, all enemies' attack's accuracy will be cut
into half. Given the massive amount of enemies you face in one battle, it's
not a bad idea to cast one of these during a pitched battle to give your side
a major advantage. This spell is also almost vital for late-game bosses, who
have absurdly high accuracy AND strong ALL attacks, which often mean death
for squad members; Confusion will give them that extra bit of chance they need
to survive.


-----------------------------
Row 2
-----------------------------


Tamashi (Soul) : For one attack, the pilot's next attack does 2.5x damage. In
MOST cases, Hot Blood is economically more effective, but Soul is often better
if you're racing against time, whether it be an AP or the stage itself, and
need to deal as much damage as possible, as quickly as possible. It goes
without saying that this should be saved for bosses, or perhaps ALL and MAP
attacks.

Kannou (Inspire) : Casts Sure Hit on any one team member, including the pilot
who uses Kannou. The same rules of Sure Hit apply here. Thereotically, this is
a good spell to use on anyone who doesn't learn Sure Hit naturally, but in
reality, the majority of people who need it either already have it (Supers) or
don't really warrant the relatively large amount of SP needed to use it (Squad
members).

Yuujyou (Friendship) : Heals all HP of any one squad. This spell has pretty
much gone HUGELY up in usefulness, especially since it usually costs only 2
times more than Trust. Especially useful for squads which have taken big ALL
hits from Bosses or Map events.

Sogeki (Snipe Attack) : For one attack. Excepting MAP and range 1 attacks,
the range of all other attacks are increased by 2. Best for units without good
P weapons, or dedicated Snipers like the Heavyarms.

Ai (Love) : Gives the effects of Accelerate, Sure Hit, Flash, Hot Blood, Yell,
Great Effort and Lucky on the caster. Dangerous and expensive, always save this
seishin for bosses only, and even then, it might not be a good choice over two
Souls or Hot Bloods.


-----------------------------
Row 3
-----------------------------


Hirameki (Flash) : For one enemy attack. Unit's dodge rate is 100%. Use this
against bosses, since most other attacks are either easy to dodge, or easy to
take without much damage inflicted. Especially useful for squad members who
need to dodge bosses' ALL attacks to survive.

Kasoku (Accelerate) : For one movement, the affected squad's movement range is
increase by 3. A slight change from other Super Robot Wars games, since it
now generally costs a LOT more SP than it used to (with the exception of
battleship commanders and sub-pilots), since it now affects the whole squad
rather than a single unit. However, you'd still want at least one person in
every one of your squads, and preferably not the squad leader, to have
Accelerate as one of their Seishin, since it's invaluable as always for time-
based APs and general speeding up of map travels.

Hokyuu (Resupply) : Recovers all EN and all weapon ammo of any one teammate,
including the pilot who casts Resupply. Unlike previous versions, this spell
no longer decreases morale, and coupled with the massive amount of support
pilots you can sortie, you'll see a lot more use of this seishin than in any
previous Super Robot Wars game.

Chokugeki (Direct Attack) : For one attack. Your attacks will pass through
whatever defenses the opponent has, including Buushin, Support Defenses and
any sort of barriers, and will hit the enemy directly. This is useful for most
bosses which have support defenders (Here's looking at YOU, Death Gale
Squadron...) or the ever-annoying Buushin.

Kou'un (Lucky) : For one combat sequence. Gain 2x Credits.  You should always
cast this before killing a major character, or large, expensive units
(anything with 15000+ HP), or when using MAP or ALL attacks that kill several
units. If you Defend or Evade with this seishin in effect, you will lose its
effects completely.


-----------------------------
Row 4
-----------------------------


Fukutsu (Invincibility): For one enemy attack if it hits, unit will take 0
damage. Most Super pilots get this in place of Flash, but for the few Real
pilots who DO learn this, it's actually very useful; it acts as a safety
mechanism should the low chance of your robot getting hit actually happen, and
prevents what would likely be a big amount of damage, while Flash would be
used up more or less instantly. Otherwise, everything said with Flash applies.

Kakusei (Awaken) : The affected unit's squad will get two combat turns; that
is, it can move and/or attack one more time after it's normal move and/or
attack. You can't cast Awaken consecutively to gain three combat turns in a
row, but you can cast after you've used it's effects once. In other words,
Cast Awaken, move/attack, cast Awaken again, etc. This is usually pretty
expensive, but with the modifications made to it due to the squad system, it
actually becomes a pretty useful support seishin (albeit very few SUPPORT
pilots learn it ^^;), especially since Move Again is no longer around.

Kiai (Yell) : The affected unit will gain 10 morale. Very useful in older
SRWs, it's usefulness is debatable in Alpha 2. On one hand, kills only gain 3
morale for most pilots, but on the other hand, the new morale boosting skills
make it just as easy to gain that lost morale. I more or less suggest using
Vigor instead.

Kitai (Hope) : Recovers 50 SP of any chosen teammate, including the pilot who
casts Hope (although it makes no economical sense). Once again, the massive
amount of support pilots greatly increases the usage of this spell.

Shukufuku (Bless) : Casts Lucky on any one team member, including the pilot
who uses Bless. The same rules of Lucky apply here. Although it costs more, you
might actually find yourself using this more than Lucky, since your supporter's
SP are less important than the ones who are delivering the killing blows.


-----------------------------
Row 5
-----------------------------


Teppeki (Iron Wall) : For one turn. All enemy attacks on the affected unit
will be reduced to 1/4th their normal damage. This modification means that
less attacks will do a piddling 10 damage, but the really strong attacks will
do far less than normal, making it more viable for Reals. Use this before
throwing the unit into a ton of enemies for cackling fun. As with Invincibility
and Flash, also good for helping Squad members survive dangerous ALL attacks.

Konjou (Peseverance) : The affected unit will regain 30% of any lost HP. Not
much to say here, it's useful if you need it.

Kihaku (Vigor) : The affected unit will gain 30 morale. Quite good
economically wise, but not really used as much for the same reasons pointed
out in Yell. Definitely more useful, for the pilots who learn it, though.

Teisatsu (Surveillance) : Used to scout the statistics of unknown squads
(those you haven't attacked or haven't been attacked by). Scout out bosses
with this, then make sure you don't get into their longest attack's range
unless you're good and ready for them.

Doryoku (Great Effort) : For one combat sequence (your unit attacking, or your
unit getting attacked). Gain 2x EXP. It goes without saying that you should
always use this just before killing a major character. Do note that if you use
this seishin, then Defend or Evade in the next combat sequence, the effect of
this spell will be completely lost.


-----------------------------
Row 6
-----------------------------


Shuchuu (Concentrate) : For one turn. Dodge and Hit rates are increased by
30%. Useful all-around, especially if you cast it on a good dodger, and just
throw it right into the middle of all the enemies. Otherwise, it's a nice
dodge boost for your Reals, or accuracy boost for your Supers. Also makes a
good combination with Confusion, resulting in a enormous accuracy decrease
for all enemies on that unit.

Dokonjou (Great Peseverance) : The affected unit will regain all lost HP.
Again, not much to say about it.

Gekirei (Rally) : All units in the squad gains 5 morale. To make up for the 5
morale decrease, it's now noticably cheaper. It's not really that effective
though, as morale is more important for squad leaders than for the entire
squad in general.

Datsuryoku (Exhaust) : Choose any enemy squad, and all units from that squad
will have their morale decreased by 10. Very few pilots learn this, but the
massive amount of support pilots, which lend into a massive amount of people
who can use Hope, means that it gets used even more. Use this on bosses who
run away after they lose a certain amount of HP, as you can then inflict more
damage on your final attack on them. In special cases, this spell can also be
used to prevent an enemy unit from using powerful morale-based attacks, or
morale-based skills like Buushin.

Ouen (Aid) : Casts Great Effort on any one team member, including the pilot who
uses Aid. The same rules of Great Effort apply here, and most of the same logic
in using Bless apply here too.


===============================
6)Item List
===============================


Items, also known as "Equippable Parts", have been around since the heady days
of Super Robot Wars 4. In RPG terms, they're the equivalent of equipping an
accessory that provides a boost in status, performance or some form that helps
whoever uses it. The number of items a unit can equip depends basically on the
overall "worth" of the unit; the majority of units get two item slots, while
weaker grunt suits usually get 4. You get items mostly by defeating enemies,
although bosses drop the most and rarest.

You can get to the Items List in the game by choosing the 5th-from-bottom
option in the menu during Intermission. The item list here will be arranged
in accordance to the one in the game.

-----------------------------
Page 1
-----------------------------

Hasusu -- Not really an item, but the first one listed. Allows you to remove
whatever item is in the slot you chose to get to this menu.

Booster -- Increases movement range by 1. Standard item which you'll get
plenty of; judge who you will give it to carefully though, as with the Squad
system around, usually one Booster doesn't affect the Squad on a whole. Best
recommended on flagships, who can make full use out of them.

Mega Booster -- Increases movement range by 2. Not-so-standard item, and
makes more of a difference to Squads. The same rules still apply, though.

Apogee Motor -- Increases movement range by 1, and mobility by 5. Basically
a Booster and Magnetic Coating combined, and can function well as both for
your Real robots.

Learning Computer -- Increases mobility by 5 and weapon accuracy by 5%. A bit
of a half/half, with bonuses that benefit Reals and Supers respectively. I
generally suggest putting it on Reals who have aiming problems; Brain pilots
and pretty much both of the Real protagonists are a good general example.

Magnetic Coating -- Increases mobility by 5. Standard item to equip on Real
robots, but gets outclassed by nearly everything else rather quickly.

-----------------------------
Page 2
-----------------------------

Bio Sensor -- Increases mobility by 10. Upgraded Magnetic Coating basically,
and a staple item for Reals all the way to the end of the game, being the item
with a balance between decent bonuses and availability.

Psycho Frame -- Increases mobility by 25 and weapon critical rate by 10%. One
of the best items you can give to any Real robot, a 25-point boost is major.
Unsurprisingly though, you don't get that many of these.

Bio Computer -- Increases mobility by 20 and weapon accuracy by 20%. The
advanced version of the Learning Computer, and the same reasoning applies.

Dual Sensor -- Increases weapon accuracy by 10%. A good fit for most Supers,
who usually have aiming problems. Flagships are another good choice for the
same reasons; who you put it on would depend on who needs it more.

Multi Sensor -- Increases weapon accuracy by 20%. Improved Dual Sensor, with
the same reasoning.

High Powered Targeting Device -- Increases weapon accuracy by 30%. The best
targeting item for your Supers.

-----------------------------
Page 3
-----------------------------

Haro -- *deep breath* Increases movement range by 2, mobility by 25, critical
rate by 20% and increases the range of non-map and non-point-blank weapons by
1. *breath* Unsurprisingly, one of the best and rarest items in the game. Put
it on your favourite Real and watch it kick more ass than ever before.

Kenta's Pokecon(Pocket Computer?) -- Increases weapon critical rate by 20%.
A good fit for high-critical machines, like the Deathscythe Hell Custom or
the Mother Vanguard, to let them get even more criticals than usual.

High Powered Radar -- Increases the range of non-map and non-point-blank
weapons by 1. In general, you'd put this on robots with REALLY long range
weapons to push the limit even further, or onto a robot with few or bad P
moves, to allow it to use its better non-P moves more often in a standing
position.

Minovsky Craft -- Allows unit to fly, and changes all Air stats to A. As in
previous SRW games, this is a good bet for units which have bad Air stats;
most Gundams usually have Beam Rifles with are B in Air, which makes a
large amount of them as candidates. With the squad system though, a Minovsky
Craft can mean the difference between a squad taking to the skies, or being
bogged down by a single land-trudger.

Mniovsky Drive -- Increases movement range by 1, allows unit to Fly, and
changes all Air stats to S. VERY good item, as the S bonus is far more
pronounced than one might think. I usually put this on favoured robots, even
if they can already fly naturally.

Thruster Module -- Changes all Space stats to A. There aren't many units who
aren't already at least A in Space though, making this item a bit of a waste.

-----------------------------
Page 4
-----------------------------

Dust Adapter -- Changes all Land stats to A. As with the Thruster Module,
there aren't really many units who don't have A ratings on Land; the only
exception I can think off off-the-cuff is the Re-GZ, with its Beam Cannons B
on land.

Screw Module -- Changes all Water stats to A. Definitely more useful than the
Space and Land versions, especially for those waterlogged stages. Especially
useful for Gundams, which will allow them to use their beam weaponery
underwater.

A-Adapter -- Changes all terrain stats to A. This item won't give you flight
capabilities though, but it's still good as a Thruster Module, Dust Adapter
and Screw Module all in one.

S-Adapter -- Changes all terrain stats to S. EXTREMELY useful, due to the
previously-mentioned pronounced bonus of an S-rating. Unfortunately, you only
get one, really late in the game.

Chobham Armour -- Increases maximum HP by 500, and Armour by 100. Standard fare
for most Supers; the whole line is pretty vital for Supers, in fact, since
they tend to take a lot of damage, even for Supers.

Hybrid Armour -- Increases maximum HP by 1000, and Armour by 150. More standard
fare for Supers, outclasses the Chobham Armour pretty quickly.

-----------------------------
Page 5
-----------------------------

Ultra Alloy Z -- Increases maximum HP by 1000, and Armour by 200. Not as huge
a difference as Hybrid Armour was to Chobham, but it's still a nice bonus.

Ultra Alloy New Z -- Increases maximum HP by 1500, and Armour by 250. One of
the best Armour/HP items you can get in this game, put this on your favourite
Super.

Zolmanium Alloy -- Increases maximum HP by 1800, and Armour by 200. I
personally value 50 more Armour over 300 HP, but it's your choice as to which
is better, and besides, both make good items for your Supers anyway.

Large-Scale Generator -- Increases maximum EN by 50. If you don't have a
Solar Cell, this might be the best replacement. Use it on EN heavy robots,
which is most of them.

Mega Generator -- Increases maximum EN by 100. An upgrade of the Large-Scale
Generator, and basically performs the same functions except better.

Giga Generator -- Increases maximum EN by 150. The best EN-increasing item you
can get, and makes a great combo with EN recovery skills or items, as you not
only increase your maximum EN, but the amount of EN you recover per turn.

-----------------------------
Page 6
-----------------------------

GS Light -- Increases maximum EN by 100, and recovers 20% EN every turn.
Doesn't increase as much EN as the Giga Generator, but the 20% EN recovery
more than makes up for it. Put this on your favourite EN-consuming robot.

Organic Bit -- Recovers 10% HP per turn. Preferable for Supers who are usually
targeted by enemies, to help them regain some of their lost HP every turn
rather than having to waste a Squad's movement or some Seishin Points
recovering it.

Solar Panel -- Recovers 10% EN per turn. Good on just about anything which
consumes EN at a steady rate, such as the Brains, where you need the extra
EN per turn to do decent damage.

Anti-Beam Coating -- Beam damage is reduced by 700. A little specialized, since
usually only Gundam enemies use Beam weapons, and even then not all of them.
Does make a good combination with Combattler V and Voltes V though, since their
Squad Leader Skill sees them taking 20% less damage from Beam Damage, enhancing
the chances of completely nullifying Beam attacks.

I-Field Barrier -- Beam damage is reduced by 850. Pretty much the same as
Anti Beam Coating, except stronger.

Gravity Territory -- Damage below 1500 is nullified. Extremely useful on just
about anything, since the barrier will affect all the members in the squad of
the unit that carries it. Especially excellent against ALL attacks.

-----------------------------
Page 7
-----------------------------

Hyper Jammer -- Gives the Buushin robot ability. Since no Supers have Buushin
naturally, its a good idea to give this item to them instead, since Supers can
make the best use of Buushin in general, as it only has a chance of activating
if the attack will hit.

Propellant Tank -- Fully recovers EN, Consumable, can be used on other units
in the Squad. Normally I never use consumable items in SRW games, but this game
is a change, mainly because you can use it on ANYONE in the squad; thus I
usually kit up my supporting squad members with these consumable items, then
have them use it on the Squad Leader if it needs it. As for the item itself,
its obviously best used on robots who'll have their EN depleted rather fast,
mainly those who you didn't have the space or resources to put EN-increasing or
recovery items on.

Cartridge -- Fully recovers Ammo, Consumable, can be used on other units in the
Squad. Same logic as the Propellant Tank, except for robots heavily reliant
on Ammo.

Repair Kit -- Fully recovers HP, Consumable, can be used on other units in the
Squad. Same logic as the previous two items, mostly used on squads headed by
Supers, since they take damage and take it hard, usually.

Super Repair Kit - Fully recovers HP, EN and Ammo, Consumable, can be used on
other units in the Squad. All of the three items above jammed into one cozy
package, good for just about any Squad Member.

OVA's Croquette -- Recovers 20 SP, Consumable. Since you can't use it on any
Squad Member within a Squad like the other consumable items, its usefulness is
somewhat decreased, but it still makes a good fit for Squad Members who require
the 20 extra EN to pull off another Aid, Bless, or good support seishin.

-----------------------------
Page 8
-----------------------------

Cecily's Bun -- Recovers 50 SP, Consumable. Powered up version of OVA's
Croquette.

Victory Meal -- Recovers all SP, Consumable. Super-powered version, not a bad
choice for Squad Leaders either. Unsurprsingly, you don't get too many of
these.

Kuttnelizer -- Recovers 50 SP, decreases Morale by 50, Consumable.
Thereotically, this could work as a poor man's Cecily's Bun for support
members, since they don't really need the morale at all.

Hachimaki -- Starting Morale +5. Good for Robots who either need plenty of
morale for their best moves, or just need a quick morale boost to start kicking
ass. Combine it with Fighter's Spirit for even morale boosting.

Nejiri Hachimaki -- Starting Morale +10. Combine this with Hachimakis,
Fighter's Spirits and High Spirits, and you can have a Squad Member who hits
150 morale by turn 3 or 4. ^^;

Brave Hero's Crest -- Increases Armour by 200, Mobility by 25, and Weapon
Critical Rate by 30%. An excellent overall item which can find its way on both
Super and Reals, although it works best on either Supers who have some form of
dodging ability like GaoGaiGar, or Reals who tend to get hit often, like the
GP-03 Dendrobrium.

-----------------------------
Page 9
-----------------------------

Soul of Steel --  Increases Armour by 250, Mobility by 30, and Weapon Critical
Rate by 35%. Slightly better than the Brave Hero's Crest, and should be used
accordingly.

Cost Down -- Decreases unit's Squad Cost by 1. If you have unused Supers you
want to use as Squad members, this is probably the item for them to help them
fit into a 4-man squad easier.


===============================
7)Pilot Points System
===============================


The Pilot Points System is taken from Super Robot Wars Original Generation,
and allows you to customize your pilots far more than was ever possible in
previous Super Robot Wars games.

When you defeat enemies, you normally gain Experience and Credits, but in this
game your pilot also gains some "PP", or Pilot Points. These are
squad-specific, like Experience; only the squad who finished off the enemy
gets to use the Pilot Points. During Intermission or just before deploying in
a mission, you can access a menu that allows you to customize your pilots
using the Pilot Points you gain. You can then use Pilot Points either to
increase your pilot's stats, change your pilot's terrain rating, or add to and
modify their pilot skills. For reference, this menu is accessed by going to
the second option in the intermission menu.

After you do so, you will be presented with a list of pilots. After selecting
one of them, you will be shown three sections; upgrading the pilot's
statistics, adding or upgrading the pilot's skills, or upgrading the pilot's
terrain rating, respectively. Depending on what you want to do, the Pilot
Points needed can be piddling or expensive. In this section, you'll find a
quick breakdown of how many PP points are needed to increase or add whatever
you desire.

-----------------------------
Pilot Stats
-----------------------------

The first option in the menu, this allows you to use your Pilot Points to
increase your pilot's stats. Simply move your cursor and press Right on the
directional pad to increase the stats by however many points you want,
depending on your current amount of Pilots Points. From top to bottom on the
list:

Melee -- 10 PP for +1
Shooting -- 10 PP for +1
Defense -- 10 PP for +1
Skill -- 10 PP for +1
Evasion -- 10 PP for +1
Accuracy -- 10 PP for +1

-----------------------------
Pilot Skills
-----------------------------

This is the second option on the menu. Pilot Skills were implemented in Super
Robot Wars 4, and have been a staple in all the games since. However, Alpha 2
follows in the footsteps of Super Robot Wars Impact in allowing you to
customize every pilot's skills to a certain degree. First, I'll give a quick
explanation on how the system works.

All pilots start with some natural Pilot Skills. These skills cannot be
removed or replaced, and are the only skills that can grow without using any
PP at all. However, all pilots have 6 slots for Pilot Skills. The empty slots
can be customized by using your Pilot Points to "buy" new skills for your
pilot to use. Note, however, that not -all- pilot skills in the game can be
bought. Making everyone Newtypes might be fun, but sorta plays havoc with
continuity. ^^;

This will be listed by page number, in order.

Page 1:
Sword Cut -- 25 PP for +1, 30 PP for +2, etc
Shield Defense -- 25 PP for +1, 30 PP for +2, etc
Potential -- 25 PP for +1, 30 PP for +2, etc
Counter -- 20 PP for +1, 25 PP for +2, etc
Support Attack -- 100 PP for +1, 120 PP for +2, etc
Support Defense -- 100 PP for +1, 120 PP for +2, etc

Page 2:
SP Up -- 25 PP for +1, 30 PP for +2, etc
SP Recovery -- 200 PP
Fighter's Spirit -- 80 PP
High Spirits -- 70 PP
Morale+(Evade) -- 70 PP
Morale+(Accuracy) -- 70 PP

Page 3:
Morale+(Damage) -- 70 PP
E Save -- 150 PP
Learning -- 100 PP
Extra(?) Attack -- 200 PP
Assisted Attack -- 150 PP
Abandon -- 150 PP

Page 4:
Guard -- 150 PP
Repair Unit -- 80 PP
Resupply Unit -- 100 PP

-----------------------------
Pilot Terrain Rating
-----------------------------

The last option on the menu, the pilot's Terrain Ratings are a judgement of
how skilled the pilot is in that selected terrain, affecting everything from
dodge and hit rates to attack damage, with D as the worst and S as the best.
Unsurprisingly, the order goes D-->C-->B-->A-->S. In order:

Air -- 40-60 PP for upgrade
Land -- 40-60 PP for upgrade
Underwater -- 40-60 PP for upgrade
Space -- 40-60 PP for upgrade

The range of 40 to 60 PP depends on the current rating of your pilot on that
terrain. If the rating is C, then it costs 40 PP to upgrade it to B; if it's
B, then 50 PP to upgrade it to A, and if it's A, 60 PP to upgrade it to S.
Logically, It takes 30 PP to upgrade D to C, but I don't think there's a pilot
with a D rating in any terrain. ^^;

As for my advice in terms of what to use your PP on, I suggest buying Support
Attack for nearly EVERYONE who doesn't have it at the start, with the possible
exception of pilots whose robot's main form of attack are ALL attacks which
can't be used in Support Attacks, such as most of the Wing boys. After that,
if the robot the unit pilots has several attacks that use up EN, I usually save
up for E Save for them. Otherwise, for Real Robot pilots, I give them
Abandon, and Morale+(Dodge) and/or Morale+(Accuracy); if there's only one
slot left, I choose depending on whether the unit has ALL attacks. Super Robot
pilots get Guard, and Morale+(Accuracy) and/or Morale+(Damage); I follow the
same format of choosing if there's only one slot as for Real Robot pilots.
Permanent support pilots ALWAYS get Assisted Attack and Learning. If there's
spare slots after that, I go for SP Up and Sword Cut or Shield Defense, in
that order. After all the slots are filled, then I modify the terrain ratings
to S in Space and either Land, Air or both depending on the robot's
capabilities. After all  that, then I start modifying staistics.

Do note that the above is entirely my style of play though. If you happen to
have a style which entails maximizing everyone's Evade or Defense stat and
Mass-rushing ASAP, hey, if it works for you, more power to ya. ^^;

A list of all the pilot skills and their explanations can also be found in
this FAQ.


===============================
8)Pilot Skill List
===============================


In here, you'll find a list of every pilot skill in the game, and what they
do. You can access this menu in the game either by choosing the third-last
option in the intermission menu, then pressing R1 to go to the second section,
or by going to the second option after pressing Circle on an empty square in
battle, then pressing R1 to go to the second section. If you do it in battle
though, you will only see the Pilot Skills of those you have deployed in that
battle, whereas doing so in the Intermission allows you to see the Pilot Skills
of all the pilots in your roster.

The skills will be arranged as they are shown in the aforementioned menu.


------------------------------------------------
Sword Cut
------------------------------------------------

Only usable if the unit possesses a Sword. Can cut down physical projectiles
or sword attacks, taking 0 damage. The higher the level, the higher the chance
of this skill taking effect. Not a bad, if slightly specialized skill.

------------------------------------------------
Shield Defense
------------------------------------------------

Only usable if the unit posses a Shield. Will take 40% of normal damage if the
enemy succesfully hits with an attack. The higher the level, the higher the
chance of this skill taking effect. I'd suggest buying this for squad members
with extra slots and nothing else to use it on.

------------------------------------------------
Potential
------------------------------------------------

The lower your HP goes, the higher your accuracy, mobility, Armour and critical
rates go. Higher levels mean that the effects take place faster, and has more
of an effect. Mostly Super pilots get this, which is fitting considering they
take a LOT of damage in general.

------------------------------------------------
Counter
------------------------------------------------

Attacks before the enemy; even before Squad attacks. The higher the level, the
higher the chance of this skill taking effect. Not a very useful skill in my
opinion, since unless your one attack can kill off the enemy, it doesn't
really do anything special.

------------------------------------------------
Support Attack
------------------------------------------------

Allows a Squad Leader to support another Squad Leader in a double-pronged
attack. The higher the level of Support Attack, the higher the number of
Support Attacks you can execute in one turn. I buy this for pretty much every
one of my designated Squad Leaders, since high-powered Support Attacks are
usually more damaging than Squad Attacks, especially late game.

------------------------------------------------
Support Defense
------------------------------------------------

Allows a Squad Member to take damage for the Squad Leader, should the Squad
Leader get hit. Damage is 60%, the same as blocking normally. The higher the
level of Support Defense, the higher the number of Support Defenses you can
execute in one turn. Not as useful as before, since you can't have Squad
Leaders support defend each other, which means mostly it's your support squad
who take the beating, and most of them usually can't take too much damage.

------------------------------------------------
SP Up
------------------------------------------------

Increases maximum SP by 6 SP per level. Great for supporters if you want to see
results instantly with less PP.

------------------------------------------------
SP Recovery
------------------------------------------------

At the beginning of every turn, recover 10 SP. Not surprisingly, one of the
most useful skills in the game IF you can save up for it, although if you're
the type that goes for APs, most often you won't be able to feel the full
benefits of this skill, as you're too rushed to complete battles quickly to
fully appreciate it. Still, if you ever get enough PP to buy this for pilots
with good support seishin, go for it.

------------------------------------------------
Newtype
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy and Evade, and increases the range of weapons that require
the Newtype skill to use. You can't buy this anyway, but its a good bet that
if the pilot is a newtype, then he or she would be at least half decent, if not
an ace.

------------------------------------------------
Enhanced Human
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy and Evade, and increases the range of weapons that require
the Newtype skill to use. Essentially the same as Newtype.

------------------------------------------------
Psychic Energy
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy and Evade. The bonus is a bit more pronounced than Newtype
or Enhanced Human, I believe, although I haven't fully tested it yet. The
higher the level, the higher the increase.

------------------------------------------------
Supernatural
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy, Evade and Critical rates.  The higher the level, the higher
the increase.

------------------------------------------------
Brave Hero
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy, Evade, Critical and Armour. It's basically Potential
without as big a bonus or needing to be below full HP, pretty much. The higher
the level, the higher the increase.

------------------------------------------------
Antibody Reaction
------------------------------------------------

Increases Accuracy, Evade and the power of your attacks, as well as increasing
the range of attacks. One of the best natural skills, and really needed for the
slightly weak Brains. The higher the level, the higher the increase.

------------------------------------------------
Leadership
------------------------------------------------

Emits a Leadership "aura" around the unit with the skill. All other units
within that aura gain Accuracy and Evade bonuses, depending on how close they
are to the unit emitting the aura. The aura is 2 squares wide at level 1, and
increases by 1 square for every subsequent level.

------------------------------------------------
Strong Luck
------------------------------------------------

Gain 1.2x credits for all enemies killed. Not bad for the money-mad, if you
want that bit extra for normal kills.

------------------------------------------------
Fighter's Spirit
------------------------------------------------

Start with +5 Morale when sortied. Not a bad choice for either pilots who
require lots of Morale for their best attacks, or even those who just need
a little morale to get them started (Brains especially).

------------------------------------------------
High Spirits
------------------------------------------------

After turn 2, gain +2 Morale on every subsequent turn. Like SP Recovery, you
can't really gain the full benefits of this if you're rushing to get AP all
the time.

------------------------------------------------
Morale+ (Evade)
------------------------------------------------

Increases Morale by 1 if your unit successfully dodges an attack. -Excellent-
for pretty much all Real robots, and is one of the few ways for Real pilots to
gain morale quickly, especially if you dodge enemy Squad attacks too.

------------------------------------------------
Morale+ (Accuracy)
------------------------------------------------

Increases Morale by 1 if your unit successfully hits with an attack. Not a bad
choice for either Reals or Supers, but a VERY good one for pretty much anything
with ALL attacks, since you gain 1 morale for every hit.

------------------------------------------------
Morale+ (Damage)
------------------------------------------------

Increases Morale by 2 if your unit is damaged by an attack. Combined with the
morale bonuses some Super pilots get when they get hit, it's easy to get to 150
morale very quickly with this skill on. Not a good choice for Reals though,
obviously.

------------------------------------------------
E Save
------------------------------------------------

EN usage is 80%. Excellent for units that require EN for their strongest and/or
most used attacks, Mazinkaiser, Getter and Brains being the best examples here.
Rather expensive though, but it's usually worth it.

------------------------------------------------
Learning
------------------------------------------------

In battle, Squad Member's PP gains are the same as the Squad Leader's. This is
actually a good first skill to buy for Squad members, since they will then
get PP much faster and learn other skills. It's obviously useless for Squad
Leaders, though.

------------------------------------------------
Extra Attack
------------------------------------------------

When performing a Support Attack, the unit will always perform a critical hit.
Thereotically, you would put this on Squad Leaders with a high level of
Support Attack, and let him Support several times per round. In practice
though, you'd be rather hard pressed to find a good Squad Leader who has a
decent level of Support Attack.

------------------------------------------------
Assisted Attack
------------------------------------------------

If performing a Squad Attack (i.e if you're a Squad Member), the power of your
individual attack will increase. Pretty much a must for all permanent support
pilots.

------------------------------------------------
Abandon
------------------------------------------------

At Morale 130 or above, Accuracy and Evade is increased by 10. Can be useful
for Supers, but is more aimed towards Real pilots who can make use of both,
while most Super pilots only really use the Accuracy boost. A must buy for
Real pilots, though.

------------------------------------------------
Guard
------------------------------------------------

At Morale 130 or above, Defense power is increased. The Super version of
Abandon, most Reals shouldn't even be getting hit in the first place to
make use of this skill, but Supers will find it handy in reducing the damage
done to themselves, especially if it makes certain barriers like G-Territory
or Protect Shield work better.

------------------------------------------------
Repair Device
------------------------------------------------

When using the Repair command, heal 1.5x normal repair amount. Highly
specialized, but good for what it is used for.

------------------------------------------------
Resupply Device
------------------------------------------------

The Resupply command can be used after moving. EXTREMELY useful for Resupply
Units if you use them, but with the enormous amount of the Resupply seishin
that you can cast in this game, it's not as important as one might think.


===============================
9)Pilot Skill/Seishin List
===============================


In this section, you'll find a listing of pretty much every pilot in the game,
along with their natural skills, Seishin set and Squad Leader Skill. If you
want to compare who has the cheapest Bless or whatever, this is probably your
best resource in this FAQ to do so.

The pilots will be listed by series, according to the game.

===============================
10)Robot Skill List
===============================


In here, you'll find a list of every robot skill in the game, and what they
do. You can access this menu in the game either by choosing the third-last
option in the intermission menu, then pressing R1 to go to the third section,
or by going to the second option after pressing Circle on an empty square in
battle, then pressing R1 to go to the third section. If you do it in battle
though, you will only see the Robot Skills of those you have deployed in that
battle, whereas doing so in the Intermission allows you to see the Robot Skills
of all the pilots in your roster.

The skills will be arranged as they are shown in the aforementioned menu.

------------------------------------------------
Beam Coat
------------------------------------------------

Decreases Beam Damage by 700. If activated (i.e if the opponent uses a Beam
weapon), uses 5 EN.

------------------------------------------------
I-Field
------------------------------------------------

Decreases Beam Damage by 850. If activated, uses 10 EN.

------------------------------------------------
I-Field Delta
------------------------------------------------

Decreases Beam Damage by 900. If activated, uses 10 EN.

------------------------------------------------
I-Field X3
------------------------------------------------

Decreases Beam Damage by 900. If activated, uses 10 EN.

------------------------------------------------
Protect Shade
------------------------------------------------

All damage below 1600 is nullified. Uses 5 EN, and requires 100 Morale to
activate. Also affects the whole Squad, so works excellently against ALL
attacks.

------------------------------------------------
Chakra Shield
------------------------------------------------

Decreases all types of damage by 700. Uses 5 EN, and requires 100 Morale to
activate. Also affects the whole Squad, and is somewhat better than most
other types of shielding if the damage is high, although if so, absorbing 700
is a little small considering. ^^;

------------------------------------------------
Psychic Field
------------------------------------------------

All damage below 1300 is nullified. Uses 5 EN, and requires 100 morale to
activate. Unique to the Dragoner Machine and Dragon-Tiger Lord, who doesn't
really need it that much since it can dodge pretty well anyway. ^^; It only
affects the Dragoner Machine or Dragon Tiger Lord though, and not the members
of the squad its in.

------------------------------------------------
Neza Barrier
------------------------------------------------

All damage below 1300 is nullified. Uses 5 EN, and requires 100 Morale to
activate. However, this does NOT affect the whole squad of the unit, so be
forewarned.

------------------------------------------------
G Territory
------------------------------------------------

All damage below 1500 is nullified. Uses 5 EN, and affects the whole squad.
Basically a slightly weaker version of Protect Shade.

------------------------------------------------
Protect Wall
------------------------------------------------

All damage below 1800 is nullified. Uses 5 EN, requires 100 morale to activate,
and affects the whole squad. Basically an improved version of Protect Shade,
and similarly as good.

------------------------------------------------
Shield Attachment
------------------------------------------------

If Defending attacks, take 40% damage instead of the normal 60%. Also, allows
the Shield Defense pilot skill to be used.

------------------------------------------------
Sword Attachment
------------------------------------------------

Allows the Sword Cut pilot skill to be used.

------------------------------------------------
Resupply Unit
------------------------------------------------

Resupplies any unit in the Resupplying unit's Squad, or any unit in Squads
directly adjacent to the Resupplying unit's Squad. Resupplying a unit will
recover all its EN and weapon ammo, but decrease the pilot's morale by 10.
More useful however, is the Resupply Unit's ability to regain 10% EN of all
members of the Squad its in at the beginning of every turn, meaning that
putting a Resupply unit will give the Squad Leader permanent EN regeneration
on top of whatever EN regeneration skills it has. Extremely useful for
EN-eating robots, and generally excellent everywhere else.

------------------------------------------------
Repair Unit
------------------------------------------------

Repairs all units in the Reparing unit's Squad, or all units in Squads directly
adjance to the Repairing unit's Squad. The Repair Unit also allows a Squad to
regain 10% HP at the beginning of every turn. Not as useful as the Resupply
Unit in my opinion, but still worthy to put on Super Robot Squads who get hit
often.

------------------------------------------------
Split Image/Afterimage (Buushin)
------------------------------------------------

When Morale reaches 130, if the enemy attack would successfully hit, there
will be a 50% chance that the robot uses this ability to dodge the attack
completely. Unsurprisingly very useful on pretty much anything, although it'll
see most use on Super Robots.

------------------------------------------------
HP Regeneration (Small~Big)
------------------------------------------------

At the beginning of every turn, regain a certain percentage of HP. If the
amount is Small, the percentage is 10%; if the amount is Medium, the
percentage is 20%, and if the amount is Big, the percentage is 30%. More useful
for Supers than for Reals again, although Reals might like it to allow it to
regain HP it might lose from lucky attacks without having to stop and heal it
directly.

------------------------------------------------
Mazin Power
------------------------------------------------

When Morale reaches 130, all attack damage is mulitiplied 1.25x. This is more
or less the entire reason to use Mazingers regularly; the damage boost usually
lets you perform the highest-damage attacks in the game, and the damage boost
helps in taking out the smaller fry in lesser hits too.

------------------------------------------------
Zero System
------------------------------------------------

When Morale reaches 140, Accuracy and Evade are increased by 20, while Melee,
Shooting, Defense and Skill are increased by 10. There's no real need to wax
lyrical over how good this skill is; it's plain and simple to see, and makes
the Wing Zero Custom one of the most dangerous Robots in the game.

------------------------------------------------
Vital Jump
------------------------------------------------

If the unit is the Squad Leader and has reached 120 morale, it "teleports" when
moving rather than physically moving to grid squares. This has the advantage
of being able to move through rough terrain much easier, or completely
bypassing obstacles or enemies in your path. Additionally, you lose no EN
from moving while performing a Vital Jump. Similar to the Boson Jump abilities
of the Nadesico robots in Super Robot Wars Impact, and just as useful here.

------------------------------------------------
Transform
------------------------------------------------

Allows the unit to Transform, whether it be to a Mobile Armour, or to a nearly
entirely different robot altogether.


===============================
11)Squad System
===============================


The Squad System is the new system in place for every new SRW game, but it's
definitely anything but obligatory, and may drastically change the way you play
and strategize. The Squad System now allows you to bring in several more units
than ever, forces you to think about how best to attack an enemy squad,
heavily emphasizes the use of support seishin, and generally makes SRW Alpha 2
a far more strategical game than its predecessors. In this section, I will go
into great detail into the Squad System, and how to use it effectively.

------------------------------------------------
Making a Squad
------------------------------------------------

First off, every unit is worth a certain number of "points"; anywhere between
 a point, such as the Gulver FX II or Ready Command, and 3 points, the titanic
Daitarn 3. Squads are made up of either 4 units or 5 points, whichever is more
restrictive. This means that it's extremely hard to put Daitarn 3 in a 4-member
squad, while squads whose total points is less than 4 is usually a waste. The
number of points a unit holds is shown as a 5-bar gauge, with the amount of
points the unit is worth shown by the amount of bars highlighted.

During the first few stages, it's highly unlikely that you'll have enough units
to make several squads, but in the later stages, you'll have them coming out
of your ears. To make squads, go to the 4th from top option in the intermission
menu to go to the Squad Management screen. You will then see several 4-square
grids signifying Squads; some may have units already in them, some may have
none. Units in the first square(the lower-right one) are designated as the
Squad Leader.

Squads with "EV" next to them are Event Squads; they are needed for the next
mission, and cannot be modified. Other 4-square grids can be chopped and
changed at your will. To do so, press Circle on any 4-square grid; the squad
will then be shown close-up, and you use another menu to manage the squad.

The first option in this menu is to place units into the squad, chosen from a
different list which you see often when you check your unit's status. The
second option is used to remove units from a squad. The third option is to
re-arrange the members of the squad; this is mostly used to designate a new
leader for the squad, while the order of the other three doesn't matter
(although the second (lower-left) unit is the only one who has a battle quote
besides the squad leader). The 4th option allows you to rename the squad to
whatever you like, to give it a personal touch, and the final option allows you
to undo any changes you made to the squad.

------------------------------------------------
Squad Specifics
------------------------------------------------

Now you've finally made your own squad, but there may be certain variables that
are easy to overlook. The two most important are:

Squad Movement Range: The movement range of the squad is calculated by taking
the average movement range of all the members of the squad, then the value is
_rounded down_. This means that a squad with, say, 3 units who have a movement
range of 8, and 1 unit who has a movement range of 7, will still move only 7
squares thanks to that 1 unit. Try to ensure movement efficiency by equipping
Boosters, Mega Boosters and Apogee Motors if a squad is only one or two
unit movement ranges away from increasing the entire squad's movement range.

Squad Terrain: Calculating the terrain rating of a squad is simple; if there's
even one single unit who cannot fly, then the squad is a ground unit, plain
and simple. That isn't really a huge problem by itself; land-bound squads can
still be very useful. However, the trouble starts when you have units who are
supposed to be only able to Fly, forced onto ground by land-bound units. When
this happens, you get a heavy movement penalty, which really hurts the squad
in general. To check whether this problem inflicts any squad of yours, check
the first bar of the bottom half of the squad menu; it details the squad name,
squad movement range, squad terrain rating and squad cost. If none of the
Japanese Kanji that make up the terrain ratings are highlighted, then it's time
to make some modifications. Additionally, even if you have all units that are
capable of moving on land, they'll still suffer heavy movement penalties when
traversing through rough terrain; however, if they have even just one unit who
is capable of both flight and land travel, then all movement penalties from
rough terrain are nulled. This obviously doesn't apply to rough terrain in
space maps, though. Items that help you adjust to these effects are the
Minovsky Craft and Drive, the Dust Adapter and the Screw Module. All squads
function perfectly in Space terrain.

------------------------------------------------
Squads In Battle: Attack Methods
------------------------------------------------

So now that you've made several squads ready to kick ass, how DO they kick ass
anyway? Here's where you can find the details of how squads work in the thick
of battles. First, you'll notice that when using squads, and when you actually
attack an enemy, you usually have at least two, or sometimes three choices;
these are in order, Supported Attack, Squadron Attack and Direct Attack.

Supported Attack: To perform this attack, a squad whose squad leader has the
Support Attack skill must be adjacent to the squad actually performing an
attack. If you've played the previous versions of SRW games, you will know how
the Support system works; after you launch your own attack, the support
attacker will come in and launch his own attack. Similar restrictions also
apply; the supporter must have a weapon that has enough range to hit the
targetted enemy, and the supporter must be able to access the same terrain of
the main attacker; a little quirk about that is that it takes only the terrain
ratings of the supporting squad's leader, so a land-bound squad can support a
flying squad as long as the supporting squad leader is capable of flight. When
hitting a squad with a Supported Attack, you can only target the Squad Leader;
if the enemy squad has Support Defense, then the main attacker's weapon will
hit the support defender, while the supporting attack will hit the leader
directly. Combination attacks can also use the Supported Attack method.

Squadron Attack: This attack uses all your squad members who have a PLA, or
Platoon attack. When you use this type of attack, the entire squad will attack,
your squad members using the PLA attacks and your squad leader using whatever
attack you chose. The platoon attacks are similarly restricted in terms of
range; you can't have a point-blank attack with a platoon Beam Rifle that's 2-4
squares, so only the point-blank attack will hit. The squad member(s)'s
attacks will also do 40% damage of what they normally do, unless they have the
Assisted Attack pilot skill, which ups that to 60%. Squadron attacks can only
be performed on squad leaders; support defenders will eat the platoon attacks,
while the main attack will hit the opposing squad leader directly no matter
what. Finally, Squad Leaders get a 20% increase to hit rates when you perform
a Squadron attack; very useful for Super robots.

Direct Attack: This attack uses only your Squad Leader to attack, but to make
up for that, the attack can be directed at any member of the opposing squad,
as opposed to only the squad leader. Damage is normal, but this type of attack
is weak to squads with a generous amount of Support Defense. It is mostly used
in missions where you have to leave the squad leader alive, or for when you
want to attack squad members directly to deprive the squad leaders of their
support defenders. Also the main method of attack for single-unit squads.

------------------------------------------------
Squads In Battle: ALL and MAP weapons
------------------------------------------------

Finally, a quick note about two types of weapons: ALL weapons, which are
signified by an ALL mark on the weapons page, attack the entire enemy squad
and ignores support defenses. You can only perform a Direct Attack when you
choose an ALL weapon, and the attack will do 100% damage if there is one member
in the enemy squadron, and progressively less damage for every extra enemy
squad member; not less enough to prevent it from being economically effective
in dealing with enemy squads, though. If your squad gets targeted with an ALL
attack, the AI will then choose the method of defense for your squad members
depending on their evade rates, and you are free to choose whether to counter
or defend for the squad leader. However, if you are COUNTERED by an ALL attack,
your squad members will not dodge or defend at all, so be careful about that
situation.

Lastly, MAP weapons are similar to the MAP weapons of old, with one crucial
difference; the MAP weapon now hits -all- members of all squads in its area
effect, without any damage penalties. This makes MAP weapons -excellent- for
clearing out masses of enemy squads.


===============================
12)Walkthrough
===============================


The format of the walkthrough is as follows:


------------------------------------------------
Mission number, and character or route name
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads: The squads that are event squads for the mission, as well as
the amount of squads and battleships you can deploy. The name on the left is
the default name of the squad, while the names on the right are the units that
make up the squad, with the first name the leader. This name scheme is kept for
the next three sections as well.

Reinforcement Squads: The reinforcement squads that will appear for your side,
and under what conditions they do appear.

Starting Enemy Squads: The enemy squads that you will face in the mission.

Enemy Reinforcement Squads: The enemy reinforcement squads that will appear,
and the conditions on which they appear.

AP Condition: The condition to receive the AP. Successfully getting APs will
give all pilots on the map 5 extra PP, and will shift the difficulty towards
the Hard spectrum.

Notes: The strategies and general thoughts that I suggest you employ during the
mission.


For the walkthrough, the first 19 missions are different for each character,
but after that, almost all the missions are the same; thus I will cover the
first 29 scenarios for each character in order, then combine them all for the
rest of the walkthrough, splitting up into character-related paths for the
rest of the protagonist-specific stages, 31 and 37.


*********************************
Zengar Route

*********************************

Zengar's a pure bruiser, as evidenced by his stats, with an obvious focus on
melee attacking; his Squad Leader skill is the epitome of this, which increases
Melee attack damage by 20%. His first unit, the Grungast Sanshiki, is a fairly
versatile one, with a nice range 4 P attack, an ALL attack and a nice, meaty
finisher; it's only problem is its lack of range, and a bad Platoon attack.
The Daizengar, on the other hand, is all about power, power and more power.
Every one of its attacks are Melee-based and based off the Zankantou, and is
one of the biggest damage dealers in the game. However, it loses its ALL
attack, which is a rather big blow to its versatility. Zengar also has a very
vanilla seishin set, with all the typical offensive and defensive seishin.

Grungast Sanshiki cannot fly, by Daizengar can, so you should give him an S
terrain rating in Air even if he can't use it yet. Otherwise, I'd suggest
Guard, E Save and a morale-boosting skill for him (Evade if you plan to use
him in a G Territory or Protect Shade squad, or Damage otherwise). Support
Attack is also a good choice, since the more times he gets to attack per round,
the far better, and SP Recovery is always good. Don't bother increasing his
natural skills, since they all reach Level 9.

------------------------------------------------
Mission 1
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads
Zengar -- Grungast Sanishiki

Reinforcement Squads

1 turn after Kukuru retreats:

Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
Sanshiro -- Gaiking
Fan Lee -- Skylar
Yamagatake -- Pasolar
Funda -- Nezar

Deployable Squads: None

Starting Enemy Squads

Haniwa Genjin 1 -- Rucon
Haniwa Genjin 2 -- Garuga
Kukuru -- Ma Garuga (Retreats after Haniwa Genjin 1 and Haniwa Genjin 2 are
destroyed)

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

After Kukuru retreats:

Superhuman General -- Almighty Fortress Mikross (Retreats turn after your
reinforcements appear)
Mikene 1 -- Gogura[Dual Sensor]
Mikene 2 -- Gogura
Mikene 3 & 4 -- Glacios

AP Condition: Clear the map within 6 turns inclusive.

Notes: Not too hard a first stage, and will be a good time to get acquainted
with the fact that most of the enemies can take down your Supers in 4-5 hits,
and your Reals in 2. >_< Regardless, Zengar starts with 120 morale at the start
of the stage, which makes it even easier. The AP condition isn't too hard;
attack the Rucon with Drill Boost Knuckle, which should kill if it hits
critical. If it doesn't, then kill on the second turn, and counter the Garuga
with Drill Boost Knuckle, and kill it on turn 2. After this, watch the
kick-arse scenes, at which point the Mikene enemies show up. The Mikross will
retreat before you can even hit it, so don't worry about it; have the Daikuu
Maryuu squad take care of the two enemies closest to them, while Zengar can
probably handle the other two by himself.

From now on in the walkthrough, when I say "within x turns", it means that
amount of turns inclusive. I'm just too lazy to keep on writing that
constantly. ^^;

------------------------------------------------
Mission 2
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Tetsuya -- Great Mazinger
Jun -- Venus A
Boz -- Boz Borot

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 2:

Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
2 Squads

After Kukuru Appears:

Zengar -- Grungast Sanshiki

Starting Enemy Squads

Evil Spirits General -- Almighty Fortress Mikross (Retreats after Kukuru and
Zengar appear)
Mikene 1 -- Psycho Bear
Mikene 2 to 5 -- Skull

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

After Mikene 1 to 5 are defeated:

Kukuru -- Ma Garuga (Retreats below 4000(?) HP)
Haniwa 1 & 3 -- Rucon[Magnetic Coating]
Haniwa 2 & 4 -- Garuga

AP Condition: Clear the map within 6 turns.

Notes: I'm not covering the first part of the stage in the stats above, but
just here. You start with Tetsuya in a interesting scenario, where he gets
attacked by Kouji, Jun and Boz. Mazinger Z has 55,000 HP, so don't even bother
trying to dent him; it's entirely possible to kill the other two who have
around 4000 HP, but it's actually a losing condition to do so. Simply run away
from them for three turns.

On turn 4, Tetsuya will snap out of the illusion made by the Psycho Bear, and
Jun and Boz will join up. Too bad Boz is nearly useless here, since all the
starting enemies are airborne...^^;

On turn 2, the Daikuu Maryuu squad shows up, a bit far away from the action;
send them to the southeast corner instead, in anticipation for more enemies.

Those enemies won't appear until you defeat all the enemy grunts though, and
Tetsuya generally can do it by himself. Throw him into the mess of Skulls with
Iron Wall slapped on, and he should be able to wipe them all out within 2 turns
thanks to his Squad Leader Skill. The Psycho Bear is a slightly tougher
prospect, but three good hits from Tetsuya should take him out as well.

Once you do so and Hadias retreats, you have more pathetic Haniwa enemies to
deal with. Since Kukuru retreats at such a low HP level, it might be possible
to defeat her outright with a Sanshiki Zankantou supported by Daikuu Maryuu's
Dragon Cutter, but setting that up would probably cost you the AP.

In terms of the AP, the time limit isn't as depressing as it looks; the turn
count is reset after you get out of the illusion sequence, so you have 6 turns
to deal with the enemies, not 3. ^^;

------------------------------------------------
Mission 3
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Miwa -- Big Shooter

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 2:

Wild Base Squadron -- Kotetsu Jeeg, Big Shooter

On turn after Kukuru appears:

Zengar -- Grungast Sanshiki
Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
4 Squads

Starting Enemy Squads

Yamada Kingdom 1 -- Rucon
Yamada Kingdom 2 -- Guraga

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

After initial enemies are destroyed:

Ikima -- Yamada no Orochi[Chobham Armour]
Kukuru -- Ma Garuga
Yamada Kingdom 3 to 5 -- Rucon
Yamada Kingdom 6 to 8 -- Guraga

AP Condition: Prevent the Yamada No Orochi from attacking the base.

Notes: More Haniwa enemies, and Jeeg makes his first appearance.  There may
look like a lot of them, and Jeeg tends to suffer from a 40% evade rate on most
grunt enemies, where two good hits can take him out, again. Use Concentrate for
the first few turns to help him survive. until your dudes arrive and get their
metallic butts to where Jeeg is; they start at the western area.

In terms of the AP, fortunately Ikima won't make a STRAIGHT dash for the Wild
Base; he still prioritizes attacking your dudes over it, so send Jeeg over to
the south part to distract him while you clean up the rest of the small fry.
Don't forget to cast Aid on whoever defeats him.

Note that once you defeat Kukuru, Zengar's unit will become unusable, so try to
save that for as late as possible.

------------------------------------------------
Mission 4
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Hyouma -- Combattler V

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 3:

Kazuya -- Daimos, Garuda FX II

On Turn 4:

Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
4 Squads
Zengar -- Grungast Sanshiki

Starting Enemy Squads

Bird General -- Almighty Fortress Mikross[Booster]
Mikene 1 to 3 -- Toruken
Mikene 4 to 10 -- Ovelius

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat the Mikross, which retreats below 5000 HP.

End of Stage: 2 Repair Kits, 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Cartridges

Notes: At first, it's Combattler VS a whole mess of Mikenes; I don't suggest
taking them all on yet, although doing so now may give you a slight advantage;
instead, just hang around the Daimohick, or even better, the western area of
the map and let the enemies come to you.

Daimos appears on Turn 3; if you had Combattler pound the enemies around a bit,
he'll benefit from a Great Peserverance immediately after. At this point, its
probably a prudent idea to retreat Combattler to the two aforementioned areas,
since Combattler still can be nuked in 4-5 hits. Move Daimos to wherever
Combattler is as well.

Your own dudes show up on turn 4, again at the western area. Either move them
to the Daimohick, or stand your ground, depending on where Daimos and
Combattler are.

For the AP, your best bet is either Daimos's Reppuu Sekken Zuki or Combattler's
Chodenji Spin, supported by Daikuu Maryuu's Dragon Cutter. I'd suggest
Combattler's, since its easier to get the morale up for him as the enemies
seem to prioritize attacking him over others, and Chizuru has the Lucky
seishin. Don't forget the Aid or Great Effort either.

------------------------------------------------
Mission 5
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Zengar -- Grungast Sanshiki

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 2:

Kouji -- Mazinger Z
Sayaka -- Diana A
Ryouma -- Black Getter

On Turn 4:

Miwa -- Big Shooter
Hiroshi -- Kotetsu Jeeg

Starting Enemy Squads

Radora -- Sieg(Retreats on turn 4)
Kyoryuu Empire 1 -- Bird
Kyoryuu Empire 2 -- Zai
Kyoryuu Empire 3 -- Zuu
Kyoryuu Empire 4 -- Saki
Kyoryuu Empire 5 -- Giro
Kyoryuu Empire 6 & 7 -- Kyoryuu Jet Unit(2)
Kyoryuu Empire 8 to 10 -- Kyoryuu Jet Unit

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On turn 4:

Zanki -- Zen 2
2x (Kyoryuu Empire -- Bird, Kyoryuu Jet Unit(2))

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating Sanki.

Notes: At first, it's one-man army Zengar against a whole bunch of Kyoryuus.
The odds may look bleak, but unsurprisingly, reinforcements come in the shape
of the good ol' Mazingers and Getters. I'd suggest rushing Getter towards
Radora as fast as possible; you need Radora to initiate a battle with him if
you want to convince him later.

On turn 4, an event occurs where Radora blows up the barrier holding the lava
from the town. At this point, you have to keep 4 units in the 4 highlighted
squares by the time the Enemy Phase comes around, or its game over.
Fortunately, Jeeg and Miwa come in to help; you can put any 4 there, whichever
you feel are the least helpful in combat. For me, it was the Black Getter and
Sanshiki which got clean-up duty.

The AP is easy enough. Once again, Bless and Aid on whoever kills Zanki.

------------------------------------------------
Mission 6

Starting Enemy Squads

Yurishiza -- Almighty Fortress Mikross
Mikene 1 & 2 -- Gogura
Mikene 3 & 4 -- Glacios
Mikene 5 & 6 -- Toruken
Mikene 7 & 8 -- Ovelius
Mikene 9 -- Psycho Bear[Chobham Armour]
Mikene 10 & 11 -- Skull

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On turn 3:

Commander of the Dark -- Commander of the Dark(Retreats on Turn 6)
3x (Mikene Empire -- Gogura)

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating Yurishiza.

Notes: A relatively standard scenario; you finally have a decent amount of
units to use. Send most of your units to the east to deal with the threat
there, and when your reinforcements arrive just south of the Big Falcon, Send
them west to deal with those enemies.

On turn 3, the Comannder of the Dark appears with a few more standard Mikenes.
Unfortunately, the great general is far from standard himself; he weighs in at
a whopping 130,000 HP, and considering the AP condition, things may look fairly
bleak. Thank goodness for you though, he retreats on turn 6.

The AP is easy enough. Just make sure you don't accidentally kill off
Yurishiza before the Dark Commander retreats, like I did. ^^:

------------------------------------------------
Mission 7
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Good Thunder -- Good Thunder
Shingo -- Goshogun

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 3:

Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
10 Squads

Starting Enemy Squads

Kelknuckle -- Kelknuckle Ship[Booster]
Dokuga 1 to 6 -- Debiza, Impactor(2)
Dokuga 9 & 10 -- Impactor(3)
Dokuga 11 to 14 -- Impactor(2)

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On turn 3.5:

Kuttnel -- Kuttnel Ship[Kuttnelizer], Impactor(2)
Dokuga 15 & 16 -- Debiza, Impactor(2)
Dokuga 17 to 19 -- Impactor(3)

AP Condition: Clear the map within 7 turns.

Notes: As you can see from the enemy list, the amount of stuff you'll have to
bring down is impressive. Fortunately enough, most of them are weak little
1400 HP Impactor ships, which die in pretty much any ALL attack, and luckily
enough, both the Good Thunder and Goshogun posess them. They should be able to
take care of the riffraff that surround them from the get-go until your own
dudes arrive.

When they do, I suggest sending two or three fast-moving Squads to the Good
Thunder crew, since they'll likely meet Kuttnel on the way. The rest of your
squads should intercept the enemies moving from the east; don't forget that
all enemies will prioritize the Good Thunder over your dudes, so don't expect
them to rush you like every other enemy.

The AP can be a little hard, mainly because Kelknuckle doesn't move from his
spot until turn 5. If you have several flying units, its entirely possible to
take the battle to him before he starts moving; if not, you'll have to plan
carefully to lure him to the shore, and take him down on turn 7.

------------------------------------------------
Mission 8
------------------------------------------------

Starting Squads

Hime -- Hime Brain

Reinforcement Squads

On Turn 2:

Daikuu Maryuu -- Daikuu Maryuu
Miwa -- Big Shooter
Zengar -- Grungast Sanshiki

On Turn 3:

Jeeg & Miwa -- Kotetsu Jeeg, Big Shooter

Starting Enemy Squads

Yuu -- Gran Cher
Kanan -- Gran Cher(Retreats below 1000 HP)

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On Turn 2:

Jonathan -- Gran Cher(3)[Dual Sensor]
Shira -- Gran Cher(3)[Magnetic Coating]
Reclaimer 1 to 12 -- Gran Cher(2)

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies within 8 turns inclusive.

Notes: Your first meeting with Brain Powerd enemies, and the first time where
you will probably have to make dedicated use of the Sure Hit and Concentrate
seishin. Them Gran Chers can get devillishly hard to hit, especially
non-generic Reclaimers. Anyway.

At first, it's just Hime with her Brain alone. You can't actually attack Yuu
or Kanan even if you wanted to, so just head northwards in anticipation of the
Daikuu Maryuu.

On turn 3, a waifish little girl will wail for help near the western corner.
Hiroshi tries to save her after some prodding from your dudes, but ends up
needing Zengar to save his ass anyway. At this point, you get Jeeg, who Miwa
joins up with, as well as the Sanshiki on the western point of the map. This
allows you to perform a pincer attack of sorts on the masses of Gran Chers.

The main problem on this stage would be Jonathan, who has dodging rates on par
with most Aura Battler bosses. Yuu and Kanan aren't nearly as much of a
problem, and can be blown up at your leisure since they start closer. I'd
suggest a few ALL attacks to get rid of the supporting Gran Chers (even if the
attack won't hit Jonathan), then a nice big finisher to do the job. Don't
forget about the Chakra Shield though, which pretty much neutralizes any sort
of Squad Attack.

All the units will eventually start rushing you, thankfully; remember that
most of them have extremely long range weapons though. The large amount of
enemies mean that the AP is relatively difficult, but as long as you make good
use of your Seishin and ALL attacks, it should be fine.

Bundol Ship -- Bundol Ship, Impactor(2)
Dokuga 1 to 4 -- Debiza, Impactor(2)
Dokuga 5 to 12 -- Impactor(2)

AP Condition: Defeat Bundol. Retreats below 7000 HP.

Notes: Introduction of GaoGaiGar, and the Zondar enemies. The first turn is
GaiGar VS Zondar, and just form looking at the stats, it'll be pretty obvious
that its a battle you can't quite win yet. I suggest having Gai cast
Invincibility, then trying his best to dodge whatever the Zondar throws at him.

The Brain Squadron shows up on turn 2, and start at 120 morale; have them mosey
towards the Zondar, but don't bother damaging it too much; the Zondar will use
Great Peserverance if you knock its HP low, so don't have your BP dudes waste
-too- much EN on it.

On Turn 3, you can finally reduce the Zondar's HP to 0, after a sweet FMV.
Do so, and watch the fireworks. After the show, the ever-fruity Bundol
makes an appearance, as do your dudes; he's brought more Tokuga enemies with
him, which shouldn't really be a problem by now.

The AP, however, might. 7000 HP will be a lot if you haven't been upgrading
properly, or haven't gotten Support Attack for your SR pilots. If you have
Support Attack for Kazuya, a good finisher supported by Daimos Kick should do
the job, but if you don't, well, good luck. ^^;

Notes: Besides the Gran Chers, this will be your first encounter with Real
enemies, and fortunately enough, they don't dodge nearly as well as the Gran
Chers. They can still be a pain though, given their numbers. Once again, good
use of ALL attacks is the order of the day.

A couple of "hidden" faces show up to help you on turn 3, but they're easily
recognizable (that is, if you at least know the series list. ^^;). They'll be
the first Real robots you can control, and can (obviously) dodge far better
than your Supers.

The AP may seem slightly hard given the large amount of enemies, but all you
really need to do to clear the map is to defeat either Dorel or Shire; all the
other enemies will retreat after you do so, clearing the map. Consequently, you
can only kill one of the two, and not both; if you have the time, Shire's
battleship obviously rakes in more cash. Both ways, you should destroy as much
as possible before you land the final shot, of course.

AP Condition: Clear all enemies within 7 turns.

Notes: A familiar Daimos scenario to anyone who's played the earlier SRWs.
Surprisingly, the starting forces may look big in number, but eventually thin
out and most of them are weak in HP. It'll be entirely possible to finish this
within 4 or 5 turns, if not for that one Dark Horror enemy who seems to go
in no direction whatsoever...but I digress.

On turn 3 (or was it 4?), the order goes out that your dudes have to evacuate
Small Balm within 4 turns. Immediately after, Kazuya finds an unconcious woman
on the ground near the center of the map; no guesses as to who it is.

The AP is easy, as already previously mentioned. Just make sure those Dark
Horror monsters don't run away too far from your sight. At the end of the
stage, you receive 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Repair Kit and 1 Cartridge.

it's Seabook and Cecily, or Kinkedou and Bella as they're now known. They then
radio their help for your mission; to reduce the Thousand Jupiter to below
7000 HP. It's unlikely that you'd have the firepower to outright kill it, but
anyway, it's a standard scenario with more Crossbone enemies to mash up,
although the earlier story events between Tobia and Kinkedou spice things up
a bit.

The AP is easy enough as long as you rush the satellite. It starts with
30,000 HP, so you'll have to whittle it down slowly. Don't forget to kill as
much as you can besides it,

again relatively small. You've done the routine before; just follow the
standard squad tactics to win easily.

On turn 2, Erika makes off with a Gulver FX II, but gets caught by Raiza and
disappears anyway. Kazuya does move a bit towards the South and gets out of
position because of that event, so don't rely on him too much. Surprisingly
enough though, he doesn't lose any morale.

This AP should be easier than Scenario 9's, especially since you've had more
time to do some upgrading in terms of weapons and skills. Hopefully at least
one of your Super pilots has Support Attack by now, which will make it easy.

AP Condition: Defeat the Crossbone Gundam X2.

Notes: More Crossbone enemies to mash up, but more importantly, Zabine defects
with the X2, AND you meet the Death Gale Squadron, who are about as hard a
boss squad as you'll come across. Not to mention you're in bad terrain which
both limits your movement, and gives the enemies nice defense bonuses.

First things first though, and the AP isn't hard if you've been upgrading or
had the sense of mind to check where your squads will be placed before
sortying. Put your two best squads, preferably with Acecelerate, at the two
positions nearest to Zabine, and move them out and hit Zabine with your best,
Sure Hit-aided attacks (as far as Morale allows, anyway...). If you can't
finish him by turn 1, turn 2 should be a certainty. For added drama, have
Tobia or Kinkedou off him. ^^;

After showing the traitor who's boss, you have the little matter of several
more mobile suits, a few battleships and the Death Gale Squadron to deal with.
The first two aren't much of a problem, but the last, especially Gilly's
Kuabase, are pretty much the most mobile units you've come across so far, AND
the support defenses of the other two characters are highly annoying. You
practically HAVE to use Seishin to defeat them; since the whole squad retreats
once you kill Gilly, I suggest taking out the other, less mobile units first
by attacking them directly, then spending your Sure Hits and Flashes or
Invincibilities on Gilly.

All that and I haven't even touched on the reinforcements. They appear to the
south, where likely only the Mother Vanguard can lend any sort of support fire.
Fortunately, the 0083 crew and their ALL attacks are more or less capable of
handling themselves; just make sure to cast defensive Seishin like Iron Wall
just in case. Rezun herself is a slightly tougher cookie, since she takes
damage very well, but continuous barrages of attacks should wear her down.

After the scenario, you'll receive GP-01 Full Vernier.

AP Condition: Defeat the Death Gale Squadron within 5 turns.

Notes: Again, I'm not covering the first part of the mission in the stats up
there, but down here instead. It's a colliseum battle between Rosemary in the
X2 and the rather outmatched Tobia in a Zaku II F2 Production Type. It's more
or less a story event though; the first two turns, you have a very low hit
percentage, and should just concentrate on dodging Rosemary's attacks. On the
third turn though, the Wing boy's sabotage will take place, then Tobia will
gain 30 morale and automatically have 100% hit and dodge rate on the X2.

What's important here though, is lowering the X2 to critical health WITHOUT
actually killing it. In my case, I was lucky enough that two Zaku Machine Gun
attacks lowered her to double digit HP, but if your Tobia's better levelled,
you might have problems. If that's the case, then try your very best to land
a weak Heat Hawk during the first two turns, in order to try and force the X2
into critical HP with just one attack. If you don't feel bothered enough to do
that though, don't worry; you'll still go to the second part regardless of
whether you destroy the X2 or not, but if you destroy it, you lose the X2
forever, and it is quite a nifty little unit.

Whatever happens, after Tobia escapes, the Wing and ZZ team make their
appearances. From the enemy numbers and the lack of battleship reinforcements,
you might be tempted to think the map is a lost cause; technically it is,
since the goal is to either defeat all enemies, or reach the edge of the map
(i.e run away), and the whole crew shows up on turn 6 to whisk your guys away
from battle anyway. This basically means you have 5 turns to "kick" as much
"ass" as possible; the truth being that the latter is more likely, as the
enemies have rather good hit rate thanks to their 20% bonus from Squad
Attacks, and your Gundams can only really take 1 or 2 hits before they blow;
don't forget that it's a losing condition to let -any- unit die.

As for the AP, you'll have a much harder time with the Death Gale Squadron now
as opposed to the last time, not only because your resources are smaller, but
mostly because only two of the pilots out there know Sure Hit; Tobia and
Trowa. Abuse that, as well as their (or one, if you didn't get the X2...) ALL
attacks, as much as possible in order to put some damage on the Death Gale
Squadron, which should be chasing Tobia around the map anyway. Once you've
destroyed the Arpeggio, go for the Totouga with direct, range 1 attacks to
save yourself from counterattacks, then finally take out Gilly with whatever
seishin and weapons you have left.

Don't forget on every turn after turn 3 to use Concentrate for everyone,
since it's far harder to survive the onslaught if you actually throw yourself
within it...^^;

AP Condition: Decrease enemy squads to 4 or less by turn 7.

Notes: At first, this scenario doesn't look too hard. The only
halfway-troublesome unit would be Gyunei's, and even his falls to a few
Sure-Hit attacks. The AP is easily gotten, and if it wasn't for the 90,000 HP
that the Reolura possesses, it would probably be very much possible to clear
everything out by turn 7.

...Except that once the number of enemies drop below 5, Char comes out to make
up the numbers, and he's worth pretty much 10 enemy squads. He has an extremely
dangerous Funnel Attack that can decimate any squadron in 2 hits, and has
99,000 HP. Fortunately, all you really need to "do" is to survive his onslaught
until he retreats himself. If have visons of grandeur and Char's head on a
platter in your mind though, you're trying a bit too early; Char will also
retreat if you lower him to below 2/3rds HP, and I don't think anything even
with full upgrades have the capability to do 66,000 HP damage in two hits. ^^;

Notes: Don't even TRY to take on the massive(well, to your puny Getter
Squadron...) forces with just your two little units; you'll die -very-
quickly, especially since you can't transform Getter Raigar, and are thus
near-useless against air enemies. Retreat towards the southwest part of the
stage, since that's where your dudes will show up (eventually).

Before that though, the quarelling AI show up on turn 2 to deal with some
naughty Spinzars playing around with the G Island City residents. They can
easily handle the three Spinzars on their side of the map; I suggest moving
them away from the action once you finish them off though, or other enemies
might give their unwanted attention to the brothers.

On turn 4, your dudes arrive, and it suddenly starts looking like a standard
anti-Boazan/Balm scenario. Guy and the EI follow hot on their heels though;
the former to the north of your arriving squads, and the latter a bit more
to the northeast. The goal then changes to defeating the EI-07. To help
facilitate that, Hyouryou and Enryou fuse into the Choryuujin a turn later and
rushes over near the Zondar (assuming you didn't attack it before).

For the AP you'd want to send the majority of your squad towards the Alliance,
but send 2 or 3 Squads to weaken the Zondar too. You'll have to kill it with
GaoGaiGar's Hell And Heaven ONLY; anything else means a Game Over. Of course,
try and clear out all the alliance enemies, including Belgan himself, before
then.

AP Condition: Defeat Jonathan within 7 turns.

Notes: It's back to those ever-annoying BP enemies, as Yuu tries to bargain
using his info about Orphan. Your dudes start pretty far away from the
starting Gran Chers, although Hime hurries over right from the start. Send
your dudes after her; even the slow and non-flying ones, to prepare for
reinforcements.

On turn 2, Hime joins Yuu's squadron, and they start kicking ass with Chakra
Extension. It now suddenly becomes much easier to fight off those Gran Chers,
especially since Shira's squad will be hurting from the business end of a
Chakra Extension; throw another one her way for the finishing touch.

After you defeat all the initial enemies, more Gran Chers led by Jonathan
appear at the southern edge of the map, which most of your squads should be
around if you were moving towards the initial enemies. It's more typical
anti-Real strategies; Jonathan and Ega are slightly harder, but they still
shouldn't be that much of a problem, making the AP pretty easy.

After you clear out the Gran Chers, it's time to change your battling
strategy again, as the Balm-Boazan alliance performs its umpteenth attempt to
kill your dudes. This time, there's an interesting rebel in Halleck, who
challenges Kazuya to a duel; you can either accept or deny, but both ways,
Kazuya and Halleck end up having their duel in the northwest corner of the map
anyway. You should accept, as it'll unlock a secret later.

As long as you make good use of Kazuya's seishins, it shouldn't be hard to
destroy Halleck; one or two Reppu Sekken Zukis with a few normal hits, should
be enough. If you do though, all the other Alliance squads will retreat, so
it'll be preferable to destroy all of them first, and use Kazuya's
Invincibility seishin to hold Halleck off meanwhile. When you do finish him
off, enjoy the further double/triple/lost count crossings that ensue.

AP Condition: Clear the map within 8 turns.

Notes: A fairly novel way to start a mission, with the game practically
telling you to match up your available units with their respective enemies.
It's not a bad idea to do so, although Jeeg might have slight problems
dodging Takeru's attacks. Zengar though, should be able to make mincemeat of
Kukuru, with the help of Flash and morale gained from your reinforcements'
killings.

Speaking of which, the main force should take on the main body of enemies;
the Haniwas, and the Kyoryuus that appear shortly after. None of them are
anything you haven't seen before, so rush in and apply standard squad tactics.
Even the bosses are relatively easy to deal with, making the AP easy.

Supposedly, if you destroy Takeru using ONLY Jeeg, you can get him in stage
22. I didn't, but that may be because I let Miwa attack him once to see
whether it'd initiate any conversation. ^^; You may not be allowed to use
Squad attacks either. Also, you will need to attack Zanki with Getter Dragon
to convince Radora later.

This ends the first 19 Zengar-specific missions. You can now proceed to the
main route; to do so quickly, do a Ctrl+F for "@: Main Route".


*********************************
Kusuha Route
*********************************


Kusuha's the strongest link between this game and the first in the series,
being one of the 4 possible choices of a female protagonist back in Alpha 1;
the game assumes you chose her as your main character, with Brooklyn Luckfield
(aka Bullet) as her significant other, on the Super Robot route.

Kusuha has fairly standard super-robot stats; in other words, horrible compared
to most pilots, but made up for by the Godliness of their unique units. Despite
this, you may want to consider giving her Abandon as a skill, since both the
Dragoner Machine and Dragon-Tiger Lord are fairly adept at dodging (for a Super
Robot, anyway), and Kusuha could really use the +10 bonus to Accuracy. Other
possibilities for slots include the ever-useful SP Recovery and SP Up, perhaps
Extra Attack since for quite a bit of the start of the game, she'll be the
main supporter, Guard a mainstay for most Supers, and perhaps Sword Cut since
both of the units she pilots possesses a sword. Her seishin is a pretty
standard set as well, save for the Awaken seishin; that's really better used
for Support pilots though.

You don't get Bullet till mission 31, but he's unsurprisingly significantly
better that Kusuha in terms of stats; apparently all the main characters'
partners/rivals follow that outline. ^^; He also pilots a unit that can dodge
very well for a Super Robot, so Abandon is a very good choice for him. His last
slot should be one of the usual mainstays; don't forget that the Tiger-Dragon
Lord has a sword too. His seishin is a bit too similar to Kusuha's, but he does
have a slightly cheaper Hot Blood.

As for their respective units, Dragoner Machine is a decent Super Robot; it has
less HP and Armour than your typical Super, but has decentish Mobility to
somewhat make up for that. The weirdest part about the Dragoner Machine is that
while its two P attacks are Melee based, its ALL attack is considered Shooting
based, which can confuse people on which damage stat to upgrade for Kusuha.
I definitely suggest increasing her Melee though, for the Dragon-Tiger Lord,
which makes a return from Alpha 2; this time all 3 of its strongest attacks are
Melee based, including its ALL attack. The main problem with the Dragon-Tiger
Lord though is that Mountain Pressure only has 3 shots, and both its finishers
require quite a bit of morale, so you have to rely on the Shooting based
attacks at the start. Another problem is that besides Mountain Pressure, all
its attacks takes up a surprisingly large amount of EN; you can fix this with
an EN-Recovering item, or EN-Recovering squad members, or better yet both,
since Kusuha's Squad Leader Skill greatly increases its effects. The
Tiger-Dragon Lord has less of the Dragon-Tiger Lord's EN problems, and also
manages to be a Super Robot who dodges regularly. It's main weakness is its
lack of range, with its longest-range attack being 4 spaces, and also its
weakest; I'd suggest sticking on a range-increasing item to help that out. All
the Tiger-Dragon Lord's attacks are Melee based as well, so there's no problems
on what to upgrade for Bullet there.

attack you, don't bother attacking him; instead, move Guy and Volfogg west to
prepare for the Mikenes to come.

When both sets of reinforcements arrive, have Mazinger Z move as close to the
enemies as possible and use Rocket Punch to damage the nearest Ovelius; Volfogg
will likely be in range of the Ovelius from the start, so have Guy kill it with
support from Volfogg, then have Volfogg attack any of the other Oveliuses once.
On the enemy turn, all of them should aim for Mazinger, counter the Oveliuses
with more Rocket Punches, but likely you'll have to defend against Badara's
attack. On the next turn, have Kouji cast Great Perseverance, and finish the
weaker Ovelius, while Guy and Volfogg SHOULD be able to take the other one by
themselves. After that, it's just Badara to deal with; 3 Breast Fires up his
ass, with a little support from Guy and Volfogg, should finish him off.

along with your shiny new Dragoner Machine, shows up on turn 3 to make things
even easier.

Besides the Impactors, the Debizas are standard Super enemies who actually
pack a fair bit of a punch, but the hardest enemy by far on this stage is
Kelknuckle, who can really run up some major numbers on your units with his
strong ram attack and Squad Leader Skill. Use whatever defensive seishin you

Notes: More GaoGaiGar goodness here, as you get GaiGar VS EI-02 at the start.
As with the other main characters' routes, don't bother attacking the EI-02
much at the opening stages; you can't really do more than a couple of thousand
HP damage to him anyway, and once you ping him too hard, he gains it all back.
Instead, I'd suggest caasting Invincibility, moving Guy to one of the building
squares to increase his defensive stats, and dodging everything the EI throws
your way, until turn 3 comes along and Guy Final Fusions into GaoGaiGar.
Although your forces show up on turn 2, they start all the way to the
southeast, and likely won't be much of a help against the Zondar. Regardless,
keep moving them westwards anyway.

The fruit makes a much earlier appearance in this route than in others, and the
AP condition is scaled down to make up for it. This time though, you already
have a great supporter in the Dragoner Machine, so either Breast Fire, Chodenji
Spin or Go Flasher with support will do the job easily. The rest are really
just cannon fodder to gain morale; there aren't even any Debizas around.

After the mission, you recive 1 Kenta's Pokecon and 1 Ova's Croquette.

When all initial enemies are defeated:

??? -- Tiger Lord Machine

AP Condition: Defeat 10 or more enemy units by turn 2.

Notes: The AP condition looks exceeedingly hard, considering you've only got
3 weak units and 2 slow units to kill 10 enemies within 2 turns, but Skylar
will be your best friend here. The general strategy is to prioritize hitting
the 3-unit and 2-unit squads on your turns, both because you can kill the
1-units squads easily on counters, and that it makes it easier on your units
if the enemies don't get +20% hit bonuses, as your main three units in this
stage will be ever-so-slightly low on vitality. Skylar will be the main counter
unit due to its speed and mobility; have it hit the 3-unit squad on the first
turn, then move to the furthest 2-units squad on the next turn. The Nezar and
Bazolar should focus on cleaning up the mounds of stuff the Skylar leaves
behind, and as long as you counter everything possible and be wary of the range
of the Black Monsters, you should just about be able to swing the AP.

Of course when your dudes arrive, the mission suddenly gets so much easier...
assuming you haven't bogged every squad down into land, that is. ^^; With the
increased firepower, you can now retreat your little animals back to safety
and let the bigger boys do mop-up.

...And BOOM, there's Tiger Lord Machine. -_-; You have to lower it below 20,000
HP to make it retreat, and it instantly aims for Kusuha, so have her pre-cast
Sure Hit if you can, since the Tiger Lord Machine has an insane movement range.
Assuming you kept most of your force together, after the Tiger Lord Machine
launches one attack on the Dragoner Machine, you can then focus all your
Supers' Sure Hit attacks on the Tiger Lord Machine until it beats a hasty
retreat.

AP Condition: Fufill the winning conditions within 5 turns.

Notes: Your first encounter with the ever-annoying Gran Chers; I hope you've
given all your squad leaders at least one squad member, to take advantage of
the 20% hit bonus; you most definitely need it to get a decent hit percentage
on the S-Size Gran Chers.

Besides them, the most immediate concern is the AP, and fortunately enough
that's pretty easy to get; you have 4 turns to get Kusuha to the designated
spot, and the 6-square movement range of the Dragoner Machine allows you to get
there within 3. Have the other squads run interference for her while she moseys
her way over.

Once Kusuha actually gets to the point, the girl still continues to freak, and
then we get a newtype moment, and suddenly the girl decides that she's been
waiting for Kusuha. ^^; At any rate, the winning conditions change, but you
still get the AP; now you can focus on mashing up the rest of the Brains, which
is no easy task with Edgar anyway; don't forget that his Chakra Shield protects
his squad members as well, which takes a lot of the edge off ALL attacks. I'd
instead suggest a direct assault with Sure Hits and squad attacks to ward off
Support Defense(if he has them ^^;).

After Kuttnel retreats or is defeated:

EI-07 -- EI-07[Screw Module]

AP Condition: Destroy Kuttnel, which retreats below 5000 HP.

Notes: It's more Dokuga goons back for a thrashing, and this time its the
tranquilizer-cocking Kuttnel out for your hide. Of course, it's never quite
that easy, and the Impactors that appear and play havoc with G-Island City
backs that ideal up. Fortunately enough, Hyouryou and Enryou appear to save
the day, and pretty much any of their attacks can take out the Impactors (heck,
a good shot from a civilian's pistol probably could...); you just might need
to throw on a Concentrate or Sure Hit to make absolutely sure of hitting them.

At the main force, the enemy units are surprisingly few in number; the bigger
problem here may be garnering enough morale to unlock your best attacks to get
the AP from Kuttnel. Again, a good finisher from any of the big three of
Mazinger Z, Combattler V or Goshogun supported by Dragoner Machine should be
sufficient in dealing upwards of 5000HP damage combined.

And then an EI comes out to make more trouble, and of course Guy then appears,
wounded and all, yet still with 150 morale (masochist...?). When you actually
attack the EI-07, it's discovered that it's carrying a rather large gasoline
load in essentially a kamikaze mission. This spurs the AI brothers to reach
100% Sync, and perform Symmetrical Docking into ChoRyuuJin. Unfortunately, he's
way too far away to actually help you defeat the EI-07. ^^;

Regardless, don't forget that it's a losing condition to defeat the EI-07 with
anything BUT GaoGaiGar's Hell & Heaven attack, so make sure Guy lands the
finishing blow. When he does, he removes the Zondar Core, and ChoRyuuJin
contains the subsequent explosion with the Eraser Head, and all's well in
G Island City...for now. ^^;

AP Condition: Defeat Jonathan within 9 turns.

Notes: Make sure before this stage that your biggest hitters either have
Accelerate, or have squad members that possess that Seishin; you have a LOT of
ground to cover in this stage, which is already obvious from the very start;
You have to practically move across the map just to get to the starting enemy
Gran Chers, and Hime standing there and taking the attacks rather than letting
the Gran Chers move towards the rest of the force doesn't help very much.
Still, Hime's a good enough pilot to take care of herself and perform a few
good hits while she's there, and she's soon aided by Yuu; you then have the
ability to send some Chakra Extensions down that annoying Shira's throat. Of
course, while all this is happening, you should be rushing the rest of your
squads towards the rampaging pair, even if it looks futile.

The Kyoryuu enemies that appear nicely decide to rush you, and are few in
number anyway; Zanki himself isn't even that much of a threat for a non-generic
character. Still, you should handle him quick, keeping in mind that you have
to defeat all the Gran Chers to unlock the second set of Gran Chers and
FINALLY see the AP condition. Now aren't you glad I had you rush all the way
across the map? ^^;

Even if you get there though, Jonathan is the best dodger you've encountered
so far; Sure Hit is the order of the day here, both for him and for Edgar. You
should try and kill as much as you can before you off Jonathan, but if you're
a stickler for APs, rush him if you're hard-up on time. Everyone else retreats
once he goes down.

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat Zanki within 6 turns.

Notes: Just looking at the starting enemies, and your starting units, the one
word to follow is SURVIVAL. Even after Ryouma appears to back you up, you still
can't transform Raigar, and you'll get surrounded rather quickly. Cast Flash,
defend if the percentages and health don't look good, and cast Great
Perseverance at the start of every turn. Ryouma should also be casting his
cheap Invincibility every turn; have the Ready Command focus on healing Ryouma
when needed. Fortunately, if Ryouma gets hit alot, then Bunshin will only take
effect that much faster and start saving your hide.

Survive for 4 turns and the calvary arrive. Assuming you're going for the AP,
make sure your biggest hitters can fly, since you start in water terrain. You
basically have to rush Zanki right as soon as your forces arrive, while holding
off as best as you can with your two Getters; unless you're God, or possess a
GameShark, or both, you're not going to be able to kill everything in this
stage, so aim for Zanki to force all the other units to retreat; killing as
much as you can before, of course.

Notes: Tetsuya and Jun can basically handle themselves pretty well at the
start; you might want to have Tetsuya cast Iron Wall just in case, but its not
really neccessarily to deal with the initial Birds that assault you.

The Yamada Empire and your own dudes join in the fun on the next turn, and you
get to see the AP condition. Unless you're on a repeat game, you likely can
either go for the AP, or destroy the Yamada No Orochi, but not both; there
isn't enough enemies to gain morale from for your final attacks within 4 turns.
It's up to you whether to decide whether the AP or a Magnetic Coating is more
helpful to your cause.

Besides the addition of the Yamada Empire, it's a fairly standard mission
against the Kyoryuus at first; have Ryouma defeat Captain Radora as a step to
convincing him later. After you defeat all the enemies, you'll have to evacuate
the Kyoryuu fortress; simply move all your units to the edge of the map to do
so, and within 4 turns. Just make sure that any units with movement ranges less
than 6, or units who suffer from bad terrain, are near the edges when you kill
the last enemy.

Notes: After the last mission's introduction of the Haniwa Genjins, you get
an even ruder appearance here, as Kotetsu Jeeg makes his first showing, and you
get two weak little Yamada Empire enemies to take down; Jeeg's no monster
himself, but at least his Squad Leader Skill will help in taking them down.
The enemies still geet a rather decent hit percentage on Jeeg, so you may have
to cast Concentrate to let him survive.

Reinforcements for both sides appear shortly after defeating the initial
enemies; now would just about be a prudent time to retreat the overmatched
Jeeg back a little to let your incoming forces cover for him, after which it
becomes a by-now standard mash-everything mission, saving Ikima for last for
the AP. Don't forget that getting the Wild Base blown up is still a losing
condition though. ^^;

Notes: You're off to space, and its time to help the Wing boys retrieve their

2 Taurus Squadron get next to the nearest Musaka ASAP; 3 turns is the time
limit. There are some mobile suits running intereference, but your Super Robots
should be able to easily handle them; just make sure Trowa concentrates on
dodging if they decide to target him.

Once Trowa does reach the Musaka, it's time to retrieve your Gundams... unitl
some Rick Doms show up from nowhere to surround the Tauruses, along with Zechs
and his Neo Jion forces. Heero then saves all their asses though, so it's
fine. ^^; The AP is a little on the generous side, especially if you manage
to lure Zechs out of his defensive terrain; any finishing move from your Supers
should do the business, and all the other enemies are nothing different. Just
be careful, since they appear to the north and you still have forces to deal

Notes: You get your first taste of Balm and Boazan enemies here, as well as the
inevitable double/triple/whatever backstabbings and crossings that occur
whenever they show up. Besides that, it's a standard Super scenario, with most
of the enemies spread out along the south to southeast.

The most immediate concern is the closer Richter in the Garunroll, who starts
with rather high morale, while you have to take him with only a few Daris and
Spinzars around for morale. Kazuya does start with some extra morale too
though, so you can have him take on Richter almost from the get-go. Otherwise,
it's fortunate that the Garunroll doesn't have too much HP, and concentrated,
if weak attacks will do it in fairly quickly. Because of this, you shouldn't
commit all your forces to Richter; send a few southeast towards the main bulk
of Boazan enemies, especially important if you're going for the AP. Don't
bother sending Kazuya that way, though.

After the slight problem of Richter, the rest is almost cake, assuming you
split up your forces evenly. Belgan's in a similar type of battleship, but
poses less problems thanks to his horrible stats.

On Turn 3, Kazuya will find a girl lying around in the town, and will go
horribly out of position if you sent him with the Boazan forces. Besides that,
you also have a 7-turn time-limit, so take out all the enemies before the 7

Regardless, you still have to battle him and a rather paltry Alien force, in
the very essence of a What You See Is What You Get mission. If you've gotten
through the last mission, this will be cake comparatively; Barubas is the only
half-decent enemy, and you can lessen most of his danger by attacking from the
Garunroll's ALL weapon's blind spot.

Notes: Your first taste of Gundam goodness in the guise of the modified F-97
and F-98, or the Crossbone Gundams. Sadly, you can't seperate them into two
different squads here; you probably wouldn't want to use Zabine much anyway,
for obvious reasons. ^^;

The starting enemies are fairly large in number, but Daitarn can handle itself
quite well with a bit of support from Noin; I'd actually suggest keeping
Daitarn in Daifighter mode, to take advantage of its ALL attack and S weapons
in Space. The Crossbone Gundam team also won't easily be hit, while the Mother
Vanguard has enough HP to survive several attacks; only old man Umon and
Annamarie are in any danger, and you'd best cast Concentrate on stuff them into
the Mother Vanguard, as we all know how much enemies like attacking weak units.
Your 4 squads should concentrate on surpressing the forces in their immediate
area, which should be plenty anyway.

The calvary arrives at the southern end of the map on turn 2, and the mission
becomes depressingly simple. It's a matter of clean-up before fufilling the
winning conditions if you want the AP, and the Thousand Jupiter is a typical
battleship; you don't even have to kill it anyway, considering it's a losing

Notes: Now that enough time's past to allow Kazuya's relationship with Erika
to blossom, of course it's time to lose her, and that event happens on turn
2.5, with Raiza going over to pick her up. Kazuya also rushes back, once again
likely putting him horribly out of position as the rest of your squads brave
the meteor shower terrain to reach the enemies.

The meteor terrain right smack in the middle of your two forces is a real pain;
unless you're patient enough to wait for all the enemies to cross the terrain
for you, you'll have to slog your way through and likely face a few Deslas with
enhanced defensive capabilities while you're at it.

Besides the rough terrain though, it's another Alliance scenario with nothing
you haven't seen before. The >6000 HP damage required to off Belgan for the AP
generally "just" requires any finisher supported by any finisher; you don't
even need to buy Support Attack for anyone, since you already have an excellent
one in Kusuha herself.

the Titans, led by the cockroach with eternal life, Yazan. Cue more arguments
between him and Camille. ^^;

Your most manuverable units by far are Camille in the Zeta and Kou in the
Stamen, with Amuro a little ways behind thanks to his inferior MP Nu. However,
as valuable as these units will be in this mission, they lack one major facet;
ALL weapons, which fortunately the rest of the laggers have to make up for
their lack of dodging prowess. The general strategy would be to use whatever
ALL attacks you have from the start to decimate as many enemy squads as
possible; the Albion is excellent at this, thanks to it's LL size, and the
Heavygun squad is quite good as well, as its ALL attack can be used after
moving. After unleashing the ALL attacks, use your ace pilots to attack any
enemy squads within range to weaken the lead unit, using Squad Attacks to
bypass Support Defenses, and finishing up with whatever weaker squads which
weren't within range of ALL attacks. This strategy works for pretty much
the entire stage with the possible exception of Yazan, where attacks from
anything besides your aces simply won't hit, and the battleships, which require
some time to take down.

The AP simply requires you keeping Yazan alive for slightly longer while you
destroy the battleships behind him. He doesn't have any squad-killing ALL
attacks thankfully, so you can just continually use the Trust seishin, or the
Metas's Repair ability to continously heal whatever unit he targets until
you've finished off the battleships, and can finally off Yazan.

Notes: Took a while, but Zabine finally shows his true colours by abducting
Bella and Belnadette; thankfully his subordinate doesn't think on the same
wavelength. ^^; At any rate, you'll have him and some typical Jupiter Empire
cronies to deal with, with the very notable exception of the Death Gale
Squadron, who you'll quickly learn to hate.

The most immediate concern, for AP goers anyway, is the chicken-like running
of Zabine from your group. Fortunately, he's a long way away from the edge
of the map, so you can (relatively) take your time and Accelerate and
Sure Hit/Concentrate your attacks onto the traitor's ass, for the AP and a
large amount of self-satisfaction.

After the game of tag, you have the rest of the Jupiter Empire fodder to blow
up, with the Death Gale Squadron causing plenty of problems; unlike the other
routes though, by now you should have plenty of experience in dealing with
highly mobile units with support defense, and tons of weaponery to put in their
face, so it should be considerably easier than in the previous routes. Just
be sure to at least ice Rosemary before Gilly, in order to yoink the Booster

Beecher gives out the order for the next, far more logical plan; run like hell.

Unfortunately, AP goers can't follow his plan, and instead have to throw
themselves into the thick of things to try desperately to destroy 8 units with
three squads, with all the enemy squads save one having Support Defense. It
isn't easy at all, but I can give you a few hints; Judouu and the Purus are by
far the best at dodging attacks, so they should be the ones thrown into the
fray in general. Elle should lead the other team as she has the better
stats and mobile suit, while Puru 2 should lead the Qubeley team as she has
the VERY helpful (for this AP, anyway) Support Attack skill, and slightly
better stats than Puru. The basic strategy is to first throw Judouu into the
middle of the mess and counter the subsequent turn with as many Double Beam
Rifles as you can handle, then on the next turn, retreat Judouu back a bit,
hopefully allowing him to kill something on the way, and move Puru 2 forward
instead, who should have enough morale to use the Funnels. Both ways, the
most important thing is to make sure to counter as many enemy attacks as
possible, as it allows you a good hit not undermined by Support Defenses; for
the first turn, this means positoning the Qubeley team VERY carefully, since
all the Gira Dougas have a maximum range of 6, while the Qubeley's Beam Gun
reaches 5 squares only. Oh, and don't forget to cast Concentrate for everyone
and Invincibility for Judouu on every turn; it greatly enhances your chances of
survival. ^^;

After you've hopefully received the AP, the calvary arrives, and the mission
then falls into the standard mash-them-all scenario. Retreat your likely spent
Gundam Teams, push forward your main force, and finish them all off.

After the mission, you receive 1 Minovsky Craft, 3 Dust Adapters, 2 Screw
Modules, 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Cartridge and 1 Repair Kit.

Notes: Wow, doesn't Kanan look 50 times hotter in a kimono and her hair done in
a ponytail? ^^;

Anyway, excusing my lecherous tendencies, the scenario, after a Brain Powerd
event where Shira blows up Kanan's Gran Cher (ARGH HATE KILL), and turns tail
as soon as the main force arrive; fortunately enough, your dudes don't come for
nothing, as more Alliance enemies then pop out. They're led by Halleck, who
challenged Kazuya to a 1-on-1 duel; you can choose to accept or decline, and
there's no real reason to decline since you end up doing it anyway. ^^; Not to
mention that accepting it is the first step to getting some secrets later on.

The AP condition is what greedy players will do anyway, as all enemies retreat
once Halleck is destroyed. Have your flying squads take care of the enemies
above water terrain, and rush your way to beat up the Garunroll, all the while
having Kazuya smack Halleck around a bit and casting Invinciblity every turn.
Eventually you'll take them all down; enjoy the further backstabbings that
ensue.

This ends the first 19 Kusuha-specific missions. You can now proceed to the

*********************************
Arad Route
*********************************


Arad is very average in many respects. His piloting statistics aren't bad, but
they're not very good either; both his machines are your average Reals with not
very much power, while his personality, as well as that of Zeora's, is about as
cookie-cutter as you can get. You get to use the Huckebein Mk III extremely
early this route though, which will keep fans of the Ace Attacker very happy.

Although it was one of the most kickass units back in the day, this Mk III has
been underpowered somewhat, and is barely on par with most series main Reals.
Fang Slasher is nice as a P "finisher", but it just seems a little underpowered
in general. The Bruger is a considerable improvement on this, with nice attacks
and mobility, but suffers a lot in terms of range, with his longest range
attack at range 5; I suggest giving it some range-increasing items when you get
it. The Falcon is a pure long-range shooter, although it has a pretty sweet
Beam Sword animation. It's quite good for what it does, and is far more
versatile than the Bruger with range and a decent ALL attack; where it suffers
is that while its Okstan Rifle W is shooting, the combination attack between
it and Bruger is considered Melee, so you might be confused on which to upgrade
for Zeora (I personally went for both ^^;). Arad has no such problems; it's
Melee all the way for him.

Arad has a Squad Leader Skill, natural skills and seishin fairly befitting of
his general happy-go-lucky character, although the addition of Snipe Attack is
a little interesting considering the poor range of the Bruger. I'd suggest
giving him the usual Real mainstay Abandon; E Save might be an okay idea since
Fang Slasher, Victim Beak and Twin Bird Strike all use EN, although most of his
other attacks don't. There's also the usual SP Recovery and SP Up, and both
the Mk III and Bruger also posesses a Sword, so Sword Cut is a possibility.
Zeora is practically the same, although her natural Extra Attack and Assisted
Attack abilities make her an excellent supporter. Any of the usual skills can
go into the remaining two slots, although E-Save will only work for Twin Bird
Strike.

Grapp -- Grapp
Camille -- Z Gundam
Emma -- Gundam Mk II
Fa -- Metas
Kou -- Gundam Stamen
Keith -- GM Cannon II

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Fufill the winning conditions within 5 turns.

Notes: Well HERE'S an interesting starting mission. Arad and Zeora both start
on the side of the Titans, and your first mission pits you right against the
members of the old Lond Bel. Yazan along with his flunkies, as well as Heero
and Wufei are along for the ride as well, and you'd best relish quite possibly
the only chance you'll ever have of blasting Kou into space dust. ^^;

Anyway, of the starting enemies, Camille, Kou and Emma pose the most threat,
but surprisingly enough, most of your own forces, supplanted by Concentrate,
can get very good dodge and hit rates on them; Heero is especially good at
this, having the best stats, although note that Zeora's a better pilot than
Arad, so keep her as the leader. Yazan's not a bad pilot, but you'll want to
keep him from killing too much stuff, since it's pretty obvious you won't keep
him. Of course if you want, you can simply ignore all the Lond Bel members and
aim straight for the Grapp to destroy it and finish the mission.

The AP condition is exceedingly generous here; if you rush your three squads
in with Accelerate and concentrate all your fire on the Grapp, you can easily
destroy it by turn 2, aided by a critical or two, without any of the Lond Bel
members landing a shot on you. The 5 turn limit seems to be a message to tell
you to take your time and kill off your future comrades though. ^^;

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On Turn 3.5:

DF 1 & 2 -- Gelgoog M
DF 3 to 7 -- Rick Dom II

AP Condition: Clear the map within 6 turns.

Notes: The majority of the "enemies" start practically on the opposite side of
the map from you, so it's going to be a fairly long trek there. You may want to
keep from using your Accelerate seishin if possible, since AP goers may need it
for the events that happen after.

Regardless, unless you're on a replay game and gave SP Ups to Zeora and Wufei,
it's unlikely that you can destroy more than the closer Beid and Adel before
they all retreat. You've got bigger things to worry about anyway; the
reinforcements that appear are sizable compared to your piddling forces, appear
right smack in the middle of the map, and generally don't budge; AP-goers will
be in trouble if they've spent up their Accelerate seishin before then. But
with advance notice, you should probably ignore the Immortal 4th Platoon
altogether and head straight for the center of the map. Note that the Rick Doms
can outrange all of your units with their Bazookas, so you'd want to keep
within at least 5 squares of them.

After the mission, you receive 1 GP-01 Full Vernier and 1 Zaku II F2 Production

Starting Squads

Albion -- Albion

Reinforcement Squads: None

Starting Enemy Squads

Yazan Squadron 1 to 9 -- Hazam

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

After all initial enemies are defeated:

Saramis Kai -- Saramis Kai
Zeora -- Hazam
Yazan Squadron 10 to 16 -- Hazam

AP Condition: Defeat all initial enemies within 3 turns.

Notes: AP goers might find the initial stages rather difficult; you have
three turns to take out 9 units, but only Heero's squad is in an attacking
position from the start, and the others will take at least a turn before they
can get their licks in. First things first, you should have Heero's squadron
head north a little and concentrate on the few Hazams there, casting
Concentrate if you need it. For the other squads, since you were able to make
squads just before, I suggest putting your two Accelerate people (Beid and
Keith) with Camille and Kou, to hurry them towards the Hazams ASAP, and switch
the Zeta to Waverider mode to increase the squad's movement range. With two
good Mobile suits bearing down, assuming you counter everything(don't forget
that the Hazams, with their 5-square range beam rifle, can outrange the Zeta's,
if you don't want to waste EN yet), you should be able to achieve the AP.

When you do, Yazan pops out again, oddly enough helming a battleship, with
more Hazams for you to clear out; most interestingly, Zeora is among them,
while Arad whines about not being able to sortie by Yazan's order. Regardless,
things become fairly easy for your dudes by now, now that you can take your
time.

If you're on a repeat game, it's probably possible to defeat Yazan by fully
upgrading the Z Gundam's weapons, and giving Camille large boosts in his
Shooting skill; the Saramis always defends on your turn, so you'll have to
counter with a Hi-Mega Launcher, aided by Camille's +20% Counterattack Power
skill to do the job.

When you lower Yazan's ship below around 5000 HP or Zeora's Hazam below  HP,
the story events start coming in thick and fast; Heero aims either at Zeora's
Hazam, or Yazan's Samaris covered by Zeora's Hazam, and tries to destroy it,
and Arad goes all hero-like and takes the hit, damaging the Mk III. Yazan then
orders a retreat, and the disabled Hucky with its comatose pilot is recovered
by the Albion.

Arad finally wakes up completely weirded out that his supposed enemies didn't
kill him on sight, although Heero tells him that it was only the armour of the
Mk III that saved his hide. Arad asks "Duo" to explain to him why he saved him,
and the only thing Heero will reply with is his real name (^^;).

After the mission, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Cartridges and 2 Repair
Kits.

On Turn 2.5:

Bug 1 to 10 -- Bug

AP Condition: Defeat the Samus Gilly, which retreats once all Bugs have been
defeated.

Notes: Before the mission starts, Kou and co (hahaa i kill myself again) do a
quick interrogation section on Arad, who's by now finished three helpings of
rations(^^;). They try to convince him to fight for their cause, and greatly
alienates Arad's Titans-influenced view of their intentions and certain events.
Just when Arad is beginning to consider things, battle sirens come out, and
Kou tells Arad to stay where he is. (as if. ^^;)

It's the Cosmo Babaronia led by Shire, accompanied by meagre mobile suits.
They're not much compared to most of your aces, although you get to fight a few
squads for the first time; simply move all your squads downwards all the time
and countering every shot.

On Turn 2.5, the Bugs come out, leaving most of your dudes alarmed; to add more
oil to the fire, Arad deploys as well, but moves away from the Albion and
towards the colony, thanking your dudes for their hospitality but wanting to
return to the Titans. Your guys try to explain to him about the Bugs and ask
him to help exterminate them, and Arad gets caught in two minds about returning
and saving innoncent lives.

On Turn 3, Arad recalls what Zeora used to tell him, and makes his decision,
moving over to the colony to defend it. He can't really do that much himself;
fortunately, some half-masked pirates appear near him and radio their support
to Synapse.

You have at least 6 turns to destroy the Samus Garu, since your
Bug-exterminating squads need one turn to move towards the Bugs before they
can start kicking ass. You should be able to begin earnest attacks on the
Samus Garu by turn 4 anyway, and even if you're slow, you can just use your 4
squads to completely surround 1 Bug to keep it from moving towards the glowing
space while you wail on the Samus Garu. Just be careful of its ALL attacks and
you should do fine. Once you do destroy all the Bug squads, the pirates vanish
into the darkness, but not before one of them confuses Camille by calling him
by his name. ^^;

After the mission, Arad finally relents and joins the rest of your dudes. You
also receive 1 Thruster Module.

AP Condition: Defeat Zechs, who retreats below 2000 HP.

Notes: Your dudes start in some rather rough terrain, and although you may be
tempted to stay in it for defensive cover, you have to push forward anyway as
Heero and Wufei have to reach the Musaka within 3 turns, and will need support
from your other squads to make it there safely.

Once Heero reaches the Musaka, the Wing boys finally get their Gundams back;
and right on cue, here comes Zechs as well, just a little south of where your
own forces started (now aren't you glad you pushed out of that meteor shower?
^^;). At this point, I'd suggest heading even further north and out of the
meteor shower altogether, taking out the rest of the initial Neo Jion forces
in the meanwhile, and taking the reinforcements on normal terrain instead. This
means that you have to wait a while for the reinforcements to make their way
through, but also makes the AP considerably easier, as you can inflict more
damage on Zechs. If you still can't do enough damage though, you can always
have Arad support with Fang Slasher for more, but it's a kinda crappy attack
that can't do 2000 damage, even considering Guard. ^^;

After the stage, you receive 1 Thruster Module.

Balm Army 4 to 8 -- Spinzar

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Clear the map within 7 turns.

Notes: The typical Mars double-crossing scenario that happens on every route;
it happens earliest on this one though, so your forces might be a little weak
to start with, although you get your first influx of Super Robots with Daitarn,
Voltes, Daimos, Gaiking and the Daikuu Maryuu itself, which helps that problem
considerably. Don't rely all THAT much on Daimos though.

Your first main worry would be Richter right smack in front of your guys;
however, I suggest splitting up your forces a little, sending all flying squads
towards the remainder of enemies at the southeast while your land-bound squads
deal with Richter in order to achieve the AP easier. Additionally, don't bother
sending Daimos towards the further enemies either; he should be perfectly
comfortable dealing with his series rival, especially since on turn 4, he finds
an unconcious lady while the order goes out to escape Small Balm within 4
turns, and gets himself out of position anyway.

Richter's quite tough to beat, since he starts with rather high morale;
fortunately Kazuya does too, and repeated barrages of attacks should wear his
17,000 HP down. Just make sure to either attack close-range, or only attack
far range with squads of 3 units or more, so that he doesn't completely
annihilate you with his ALL attack. Belgan follows the same logic, except has
a harder time hitting your guys, and has a far more dangerous close-range
attack.

Jupiter Empire 11 to 14 -- Badara

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies except the Thousand Jupiter before fufilling
the winning conditions, which is to reduce the Thousand Jupiter below 10,000
HP.

Notes: It's Daitarn 3 and the pirates who helped you before against the Jupiter
Empire; the pirates also finally become unmasked, revealing themselves to be
Seabook and Cecily, comrades in the previous Balmar War; or Kinkedou and Bella,
as they're now known. Unfortunately you're stuck with both of the kickass
Crossbone Gundams in a single squad; then again, you probably wouldn't want to
use Zabine that much anyway.

Half the enemy squads consist of more than 1 unit, so I suggest switching
Daitarn to Daifighter mode to access its ALL attack to make cleanup a little
easier; The others should also focus on reducing all the squads around to 1
member to void the 20% hit bonus they might get, which is crucial when you're
relying mostly on a few Reals to pull their weight.

You won't have to rely on them for very long though, as the main force arrives
at the south on turn 2, and then the mission looks very standard, with your
Reals easily dodging their attacks and your Supers (relatively) easily taking
them. The AP condition is easily fufilled as well simply by being greedy and
getting all the cash and EXP possible before fufilling the winning conditions.

After the mission, you receive 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Cartridge, 1 Repair Kit, 1
Cecily's Bun and 1 Gundam F91.

Boazan Army 4 to 6 -- Boazan Fighter Ship(2)

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat the Skullrook, which retreats below 6000 HP.

Notes: A huge meteor field seperates your two forces, and is generally a bigger
pain for you than for your opponents, since you're expected to go on the
offensive; the main enemies will wait ages for you if you don't go for them
pre-emptively. Hopefully you have people with Accelerate in quite a few squads
now, to make the tedious moving process a little faster.

Don't bother moving Kazuya around too much; on turn 2.5, he Erika bails out in
a Gulver, and Kazuya moves over right next to her and pretty much destroys any
attacking position he had, so he won't be much of a help in this scenario. Pity
really, since his P ALL attack would be really useful against the Boazan
Fighter Ship squads stuck in the meteor field with the rest of yourforce.

Your main problem is again navigating and fighting your way through the meteor
field with likely 8 enemy squads benefitting from defense boosts. The two
battleships on scene are ones you've already faced before; in terms of the AP,
a good finisher with good Support should do the job; I suggest Chodenji Ball
V Slash, as it's the strongest non-range-1 finisher you have, and can be
supported by Huckebein Mk III's Fang Slasher if you haven't yet given Support
Attack to anyone else.

AP Condition: Defeat the Crossbone Gundam X2.

Notes: Man, all the tail-turning and backstabbing are happening really fast in
this route. ^^; This is the hardest of all the Zabine-defecting scenarios in
all the routes though, as Zabine not only starts very far away from most of
your units (with the exception of Tobia), but right smack in the middle of a
meteor field too, making bridging the gap between your forces and the X2 a far
harder task. You might actually find it easier to work your way north and west
around the meteor terrain, and intercept Zabine from there; Tobia can put
around 2000 damage on him with 2 Heavy Machine Gun and 1 Shot Lancer attack,
so you don't need a huge amount of support from there.

The main problem is that if you do decide to head north and west, you'll come
under heavy fire from most of the other Jupiter Empire forces, including the
first appearance of the Death Gale Squadron. I suggest dividing your force into
two; a small advance force of 2 or 3 fast moving squads(6 or 7 movement range
and Accelerate) whose goal should be to intercept the X2 before it reaches the
north part of the map, and the rest run inteference and face the main bulk of
enemies directly.

The most troublesome enemies here by far are the Death Gale Squadron, with
units who can actually dodge and dodge well, and one of the first squads you
come across with dedicated support in defense, and the ever-dreaded 20% hit
bonus on squad attacks. You'd want to save most of your Concentrates and Sure
Hits for this team; don't forget that Rosemary holds a Booster though, and thus
you should pop her before you pop Gilly, since the whole squad retreats once
the leader is defeated. Other then them, it's a fairly standard scenario,
albeit with somewhat greater numbers than you've faced before.

Notes: Welcome to SRW Alpha 2's only indoor/corridor mission. Fortunately,
there's no time limit unlike previous SRW's versions; in fact this one is a
cakewalk compared to some of the older indoor missions, with two great units
against a host of standard grunts at the start.

Judouu and Tobia will likely only face the single-unit squads, as Beecher and
the Purus pop out in the southwestern exit to help, and Rosemary and the two
nearest squads will head straight for them; Judouu and Tobia need no real
assisting, but you might have some trouble with the others. I suggest having
Puru 2 lead the Puru team since she has the Support Attack skill, which
Beecher's squad can make great use of. Have Puru 2 in front of the other squad,
hopefully attracting most of the hits since she has the greatest piloting stats
of the two squads (don't forget to cast Concentrate!), and counter with Beam
Guns and once you can use them, Funnels. Beecher's squad's main role is to let
Puru 2 land another hit usually. Rosemary is still rather tough to hit, but
save-restart can help with that quite well. Most of your damage on her will be
done via counters, since all the members of her squads have Support Defense.

Once you cleared everyone out, it's a matter of reaching the designated point,
although once you get close to it, here's Barns. Although he's on defensive
terrain and won't budge an inch, he doesn't bring very much support with him,
and he's actually far easier to deal with than Rosemary because of
unwillingness, to move an inch; you can easily attack him from his two blind
spots, range 1 and anything range 6 and above. The trouble here is actually
getting the AP, as Barns brings two Support Defenders with him, and you have
to kill them before taking down Barns to get the AP, and Barns still has that
annoying Support Defense skill as well. I suggest using the ALL attacks of the
Hyaku Shiki, X2 and ZZ (even if the latter puts you in range for a potentially
painful counter) to exterminate the lower-HP squad members before putting the
finishing touches on Barns.

Notes: Arad and Tobia get called out to do some training with Monsha, who's in
the GP-02; Arad freaks a little after remembering that it's nuke-capable, but
Monsha tells them to relax since that function's been disabled. In other words,
it's a straight out fight with no silly mass destruction weapons to worry
about. Of course, a unit stripped of the one thing it was designed for leaves
very little to worry about, and either Arad or Tobia can handle him easily.
It's how fast you can take him that matters; try and do it on the first turn,
although two is acceptable, to give yourself more leeway for the AP.

Once you reduce the GP-02 below 2500 HP (or destroy it, on a replay game ^^;),
the shit goes spraying everywhere as the watching battleships turn out to be
Titan warships, and send out Hazams to capture the GP-02. Your dudes sortie a
little too late to prevent that, but you can always take your anger out on the
poor Hazams and Yazan still hanging around. Arad and Tobia likely won't help
much, unless you've given Arad a birthday with early Accelerate, since they're
stranded a long way from the action.

The majority of the enemies are in squads, so ALL attacks are the order of the
day. Yazan's group is somewhat similar to the Death Gale Squadron of 2 missions
ago, but Yazan isn't quite as good a dodger as Gilly and their units have less
HP, making them considerably easier to lay waste to. With Accelerate and 12
squads on the go, the AP should be easily fufilled, especially if you sortied
on turn 1.

Once you finish the mission, Zeora pops out with the Wild Falcon, and then
realizes the Hucky Mk III's on the battlefield; of course she assumes that the
Lond Bel just killed its pilot and used his machine. She's all ready to extract
some revenge on it, but before she can and actually find out the truth, Yazan
orders her to retreat with her mission objective already fufilled, which she
unwillingly does so. Arad then gets to angst a little. ^^;

When the AP condition is fufilled:

Red Comet -- Sazabi

AP Condition: Destroy 17 or more enemy units within 6 turns.

Notes: This looks like a fairly standard mission against Neo Jion units, with
the exception of the 90k(!!) HP Reulura which you should more or less ignore
anyway. The main difficulty at the start is the usual problem of having to
navigate through meteor fields and the defensive boosts they give to enemies
inside them.

You can get your fill of enemies for the AP just from the Gira Douga squads,
you don't actually need to mess with battleships or face characters to receive
the AP. It's not too hard to take down everything except the Reulura within the
time limit you have anyway; the only "slightly" difficult problem is the
appearance of Char, who's far more powerful than your piddling force at this
stage; you'd do well just to survive his ALL funnels without having a unit
destroyed. Make sure to cast Trust or Friendship (Iino has this early) on the
poor squad Char decides to target.

Your goal is to survive for a set number of turns, although on a replay game,
you can "just" lower the Sazabi or Reulura to below 2/3rds HP to end the
mission prematurely.

Halleck -- Dari[Hachimaki]
Boazan Army 1 to 3 -- Ocosenia
Boazan Army 4 to 6 -- Boazan Fighter Ship(3)
Balm Army 1 to 3 -- Spinzar(2)

AP Condition: Defeat all initial enemies within 5 turns.

Notes: You have 14 squads to deploy here, but chances are you won't be using
more than half of them, at best; this is because the stage is HEAVILY
waterlogged, with only small pieces of land where most of your units start.
This gives a heavy importance to any flying squads you have, since they'll be
your main attacking force for this scenario; land-bound squads will be more or
less useless, since even the enemy reinforcements appear towards the southwest
far away from your starting point; pretty much all your land-bound squads will
be good for is seishin support.

Having said that, it's fortunate that the starting squads aren't that hard,
although it's your first time dealing with the Aura Battler-esque Gran Chers.
These are high-mobilility units with their speed enhanced by their S size, but
the same statistics make them exceedingly easy to defeat; Supers can take them
with one hit, while Reals just need a couple of squad attacks to weaken them
enough for the kill. You may just need your Supers to throw on Sure Hit to
actually hit the buggers; this is especially true for Jonathan and Shira, who
will most likely have their Chakra Shield activated. Chakra Shields decrease
damage by 700, and affects the whole squad; thusly you shouldn't try using ALL
attacks, instead focus on strong, Sure Hit attacks with squad attacks to ward
off the Support Defenses. Assuming most of your flying teams also have
Accelerate, and assuming you have at least 4 or 5 of them (not counting the
Battleship), you should do okay, not even counting that Nanga and Lasse appear
to help you on turn 2 anyway.

Once you do finish off the initial forces, it's the Alliance enemies again, but
this time there's a bit of a wildcard in Halleck, who challenges Kazuya to a
1-on-1 duel. You can either accept or decline; there's no real reason to
decline, since in both cases you end up doing it, and you need to accept it to
unlock a secret later anyway. The two martial artists move to the north side
of the map to have their duel, leaving the rest of your (flying) forces to
deal with Raiza and the Alien mecha at the south.

Unlike the similar missions of the other routes, it's actually pretty hard to
take down all the Alliance enemies before Halleck goes, since there's quite a
few of them compared to your likely meagre flying army, and a few of them are
waterlogged as well; if you want to just finish things relatively quickly, you
might want to "just" take out the flying Ocosenias, Boazan Fighter Ships and
the Garunroll before you have Kazuya destroy Halleck, and watch all the double
crossings and backstabbings that will become commonplace whenever you see the
Balm/Boazan alliance enemies.

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating Kelknuckle.

Notes: You've got a couple of Super Robots and a rather weak battleship against
the Dokugas, who fortunately are even weaker than your paltry forces. Only the
Debizas and Kelknuckle himself will cause any sort of problem; the Impactors
will struggle to do more than 500 damage to your Supers, and make good fodder
for morale boosting anyway. The Debizas aren't that much better either,
although they have a decent amount of HP and relatively strong attacks.

The biggest problem is of course Kelknuckle, who boasts a great Squad Leader
Skill of 90% damage and 120% attack power, which when coupled with his ship's
ram attack, can take an extremely large chunk out of your Supers. Use defensive
seishin to the max, hit him with as many of your finishers as possible, and
don't forget to use Lucky and Great Effort on whoever deals the finishing blow
on Kelknuckle.

AP Condition: Move Arad onto the predefined square within 5 turns.

Notes: It's a Brain revival from a Plate, which Hime feels a strange connection
to, and then starts babying it (^^;). Yuu and Kanan can't stop the Plate from
undergoing revival, and try to order it to stand down, but Hime isn't exactly
going to listen to any talk from Gran Chers scaring her poor baby. Regardless,
Hime can't attack either units from the start; move her south to hook up with
the rest of your forces arriving on the next turn.

When they do, more Gran Chers pop out as well, and a little girl is detected in
the town, who apparently didn't evacuate fast enough; Arad is commissioned to
saving her while Heero and the others distract the Gran Chers, since the
Hucky is one of the fastest in your force. Even given that though, it'll still
take every one of those 5 turns to reach the designated spot, unless you
equipped the Hucky with some movement-increasing items beforehand, or have
Accelerate on him. Meanwhile, the rest of your force should concentrate on
dealing with the Gran Chers, who aren't much different from the ones you faced
back in mission 13; Edgar is also similar to Jonathan and Shira of that
mission, so follow the same basic tactics. Note that Yuu and Kana both retreat,
but don't harbour any decent items anyway, so do with them as you wish.

Once Arad reaches the designated point, he tries to get the girl to go inside
the Mk III, but the girl resists, apparently still in shock from the combat.
Arad then tries to tell her a joke to calm her down (Gee-emm!~), but she
doesn't really get it; it has the effect of calming her down anyway, and she
willingly enters the cockpit. Now all you need to do is finish off the
remaining Gran Chers and Edgar.

Notes: Exactly like the GaoGaiGar TV series, it's Guy in the GaiGar against the
EI-02; not quite exactly like the GaoGaiGar TV series, the Brain Powereds
arrive to help, bringing Hime's Brain with them. They all start at 120 morale
as well; if you're on a repeat game, it's actually possible to bring the EI-02
to 0 HP at this point with the Brain Powereds, but it still recovers all its
HP; just wait till turn 3 when GaoGaiGar emerges before you start laying some
righteous smackdown on the EI-02 with Hell & Heaven.

Once the EI-02 is down for the count and the Zondarized human is back to
normal thanks to Mamoru, it's time for your once-a-route infusion of vitamin C,
as the ever-fruity Bundol pops up and makes trouble. Fortunately enough, both
the Good Thunder Team and your own dudes appear at this point, making the
firefight a lot easier. The only problem you might have would be with the AP,
as 7000 is quite a bit to do on an LL size machine. Hopefully you've bought
Support Attack for at least one of your Supers now in order to have a Super
finisher supported by another Super finisher; otherwise, the Hucky's Fang
Slasher might be the back-up choice once again.

After Belgan is defeated:

EI-07 -- EI-07[Screw Module]

AP Condition: Defeat the Skullrook, which retreats below 5000 HP.

Notes: All the initial enemies start at the southwestern area of the map, and
unsurprisingly, you should send most of your force there; the slowest ones
though should instead head north from your southeast starting position, to
assist Hyouryou and Enryou later. Besides that, it's a fairly standard scenario
against Boazan and Balm enemies; reinforcements appear on turn 2.5 to play
havoc with G Island City, but Hyouryou and Enryou appear to help out, and
backed up by one or two of your own squads, should be able to handle the
enemies there easily. Belgan is a slight problem, if only because he starts
above water; as long as you have at least 1 flying squad with a Support
Attacker though, it's easy enough to get the AP. All enemies retreat once you
defeat Belgan, so you might want to take out everyone, including the Spinzars
to the northeast, before you take Belgan out.

Once you do, EI-07 appears, and Guy does as well, putting his life on the line
to protect the people of G-Island City; only he can defeat the Zondar with
his Hell & Heaven attack, and this is further emphasised by it being a winning
condition (and logically, everything else being a losing one). Additionally,
once the EI-07 is attacked, a large amount of oil is detected; once its
destroyed, it'll cause a massive explosion that'll blow up the entire city.
Hyouryou and Enryou then emphasise their mission goals as the same as Guys, and
perform Symmetrical Docking into Choryuujin. Once you defeat the EI-07, Guy
grabs the Zondar core, and Choryuujin uses the Eraser Head to limit the
destructive energy and send it somewhere in space.

Notes: Yuu tries to do some bargaining with the GGG using information about
Orphan; before talks can get too protracted though, a chase force led by Shira
appears, and declares Yuu a traitor, which Kanan still finds hard to accept.
Hime then remembers Yuu from their previous skirmish, and races over to help
him. You then get a turn of not very much you can do, until turn 1.5, where
Shira destroys Kanan's Gran Cher thinking that she's siding with Yuu; Yuu then
gets pissed and Shira meets the business end of Yuu and Hime's Chakra
Extension. Throw another one her way on the next turn to finish her off.

Despite how far away your main force is from the Gran Chers, keep moving them
all towards them rather than just the fast-movers; another squad of Gran Chers
appear once you defeat all the initial ones, and if you took too long to deal
with the initial Gran Chers, your chances of getting the AP become heavily
decreased, thus having your whole force there still helps a bit.

Jonathan and Edgar are the usual high-dodging buggers who are sorted out by a
Sure Hit finisher; once you destroy Jonathan, everyone retreats, so do the
usual if you want all the cash and EXP. When you do defeat him, Yuu sends him
back to Orphan to act as a messenger boy to tell Orphan that what its doing is
wrong, and he won't be their puppet anymore.

Before any celebrations can ensue though, a giant tidal wave is detected and
about to wash over G-Island City. (Those residents should move to a safer
place, really...) In a kickass map sequence, Yuu and Hime use their Brains'
Chakra Shields to hold off the tidal wave, while Choryuujin removes it
completely using the Eraser Head, with the brains Vital Jumping out of the way
at just the right moment. Enjoy the ripped BP anime scenes after. ^^;

Notes: Da, da-da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da!  Okay, I'll shut up, but you finally
get introduced to Jeeg and his amazingly (and annoyingly) catchy theme song
here. As a unit though, he's sorta lacking; he doesn't really have the stats of
a Real ace, but has even less armour and HP than your typical Real. You'll
probably need to throw on a Concentrate on every turn he's in combat to help
him survive.

More enemies come after beating up the first two, and this time, their numbers
are far more intimidating. Fortunately enough, the Super Robot team also
appears to help soon after, and they can readily take advantage of both the
Garuga and Rucon's lack of range 1 air attacks. Note that all the initial
enemies make a beeline for the base (with the exception of Ikima, who makes a
beeline for Jeeg); if the base gets destroyed, it's game over, and it can only
take 3 or 4 hits, so be careful about that.

Ikima's a pretty crappy pilot; his ALL attack can't get a decent percentage on
Jeeg OR Miwa, which is pretty sad. Just throw on a few defensive seishin
before you attack him just in case, and make sure you've defeated everything
else before (which shouldn't be hard, since Jeeg can just sit there and dodge
him all day).

This ends the first 19 Arad-specific missions. You can now proceed to the main
route; to do so quickly, do a Ctrl+F for "@: Main Route".


*********************************
Ivis Route
*********************************


There's no real kind way to put it; for the first 30 or so missions, Ivis
plain sucks as a pilot. Her stats are about on par with your average support
pilot, and doesn't really do justice to a kicking unit like the Alterion, and
her Squad Leader Skill is piddling compared to most others as well. Be as it
may though, you're stuck with what you got; during the first few missions, it's
practically vital to upgrade Alterion's mobility at least a few blocks to be
able to dodge with any sort of regularity. Ivis is also one of the few pilots
which I recommend getting S terrain ratings for before pilot skills, since she
can REALLY use the dodging bonus involved with them. On the other hand, Ivis
has insane morale gains at this period; she gains -3- morale for every
successful dodge, and 1 for every successful hit. Thankfully though, on stage
31, Ivis receives a massive boost to her statistics, still putting her a fair
bit below most ace pilots, but with the hardware to keep up. Her Squad Leader
Skill also becomes one of the most useful in the game. You lose the crazy
morale gains, but it's a good tradeoff in my opinion.

In terms of skills, Abandon is vital to help her horrible stats at the
beginning, and slightly mediocre ones after stage 31. As usual, SP Recovery is
good if you can afford it, and SP Up is a cheap solution meanwhile; a morale
increasing skill may also be a good idea, as though she doesn't really need it
at the first half of the game, it will still help, and becomes more important
at the last half. Both Alterion in DF mode and Hyperion possesses a Sword, so
you might want to give Ivis the Sword Cut ability; just keep in mind she
doesn't have it naturally, so unless you have a ton of PP, you likely won't be
able to max it.

When you get her, Suray's a amazingly good pilot; she has stats about on
par with most Newtype aces, and a potentially useful Squad Leader Skill. Her
natural pilot skills are a little odd though, and seem to point more towards
the Super Robot side for some resaon. ^^; For the two empty slots, SP Recovery
or SP Up is always nice, especially since it'll help her supply the Hyperion
with more Hot Bloods or Snipe Attacks; you may also want to give her Assisted
Attack, for the few times you want to use Alterion instead of Hyperion.

Ivis has a typically Real pilot seishin list, although Soul is always nice.
Tsugumi on the other hand also has a typical support seishin list, but the bad
part is that it's -really- expensive, with the most expensive Aid in the game.
Still, she has no other use for seishin, and her Hope SP cost is acceptable.
Suray's seishin list on the other hand fully emphasizes her role as a co-pilot,
with Accelerate, Sure Hit, Snipe Attack and extra Hot Bloods to support Ivis.

The Alterion and Hyperion are both quite similar in terms of weapons and
skills; the main problem is that of the four P moves both have, the one you'll
use most often is sadly the Gravity Guidance (or GG) Cannon, as the Spiegel
missiles only have 2 Ammo, and the Sonic Saber takes up EN(and too much of it
in the case of the Hyperion), and is the only melee attack, and the GRaMXs is
obviously saved only for bosses, since it only has 3 Ammo. Otherwise, they're
very nifty little units, which are nearly impossible to hit thanks to high
mobility and Bunshin, and good range on most of its attacks. I suggest
equipping weapon range-increasing items, since none of the Alterion's attacks
are point blank only.

When 2 enemy squads have been defeated:

CB 5 & 6 -- Tenan Zon

AP Condition: Clear the map within 5 turns.

Notes: This is actually a relatively hard starting map, but that's mainly a
result of having only Alterion at the start, which despite being a Real robot,
doesn't get that good dodge or hit percentages on the starting enemies. If you
don't want to rely on excessive luck to survive, you best have Ivis cast
Concentrate for the first two turns, and send her right in the middle of the
enemies. It doesn't really matter which you target first; The Dagi Irus has
the lowest HP, but anything on the map should be blasted in two hits anyway.

Once you've killed two enemies, which should be doable by turn 2 by attacking
on the first turn, countering at least two enemies and killing one, then
finishing off the second, the space pirates appear, and you get to use Alterion
in its CF mode instead, which has the G Accel Driver as a P attack. Kinkedou
in his Gundam F91 can also dodge considerably better, so move him into the
fray as soon as you can; the Alterion will probably be out of position.

You have 6 enemies to deal with within 5 turns for the AP; as long as you
counter almost every enemy attack, you should be able to fufill it easily.
Don't worry about the Babaronia Vanguard, as the winning condition is to
defeat all enemies besides that.

Notes: Your guys start in defensive terrain, which is rather hard to move in;
I suggest moving both your squads to the very edge of the meteor field in order
to get the best percentages while not letting the enemies do so as well. You
also receive the Crossbone Gundam X1; you can choose during the intermission
whether to put Umon into the F91 or the Zond Ger for this mission (what a tough
choice. ^^;).

On turn 2, Dorel appears with a few more reinforcements; however, Zabine and
his subordinate defects from the enemy to join the pirates as well. If
anything, at least that takes out one of the major threats on the map; the only
other one which might cause a headache would be Dorel, who has surprisingly
good dodge and hit rates at this point, and 8300 HP; you should probably save
Concentrate seishin for him, as Zabine and Kinkedou can easily handle the small
fry without seishin assistance.

The AP is easily achieved as Dorel starts a little behind the rest of his

AP Condition: Clear the map within 6 turns.

Notes: Your first ever meeting with the Death Gale Squadron; or two thirds of
it, at least. They're as annoying as all get-out; extremely high dodge rates,
and decent amounts of power, enough to put a large dent on Daitarn 3. Your
immediate concern, though, is the nearer set of enemies. You probably want to
change Z Gundam into Waverider mode, as Rue isn't that hot of a pilot; the
Waverider's S terrain status in Air gives it a better dodge rate, and as the
Re-GZ is air-only, leaving the Z in its MS form will give you movement
penalties. Of course, you COULD seperate the Re-GZ into MS mode, but that's a
different story. ^^;

On turn 3, enemy reinforcements attack from the east; fortunately, Daimos is
on hand to deal with it, although he'll probably take quite a few big hits
doing so. Meanwhile, Banjou, Ruu and Four should've finished up, or are
finishing up the small fry, and getting ready to move on to the Death Gale
Squadron; I hope you haven't spent any seishin on either, because you'll need
Banjou's Sure Hit and Ruu's Concentrate to get decent hit rates on either the
Arpeggio or the Kuabase. If you're still struggling, go ahead and send Daimos
to help them out after it's finished its work.

All the advice above is mainly for just clearing the stage; if you want the AP
though, it suddenly gets a lot harder. You should still start the same way,
but have Banjou more on the eastern side of the enemies for faster access to
the Death Gale Squadron once you're done with them. By turn 3, you practically
have to move Banjou over to start attacking the DGS; you can either use the
ALL attack of the Daifighter, or attack the Arpeggio directly using Daitarn
Javelin. Try and get hit as often as possible with Daitarn 3 too, in order to
boost your morale up enough to eventually be able to use Sun Attack. Ruu and
Four should finish off the grunts by turn 4, and have them rush over to lend
some Hi Mega Launcher support; you'll also probably need to have Nana cast
Trust on Banjou a few times, as the DGS will likely prioritize attacking him.
For me, I eventually had to rely on a non-Sure Hit Sun Attack(at 36% ^^;) to
apply the finishing touch; hopefully it won't have to come down to that as
long as you know what to expect.

After the mission, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2Repair Kits and 2

Notes: Your two forces from the first three missions join up, and your enemies
are pretty much more of the same. The new face is the Thousand Jupiter
satellite, which starts at 35,000 HP, so AP-goers will have to budget enough
time to remove 15,000 HP from that; likely about two turns, if you play your
cards right.

This is also the first mission where the grunt enemies use squads, so you
might want to practice squad tactics here. It goes without saying that you
should clear out as many enemies as you can before disabling the Thousand
Jupiter; especially make sure to nab the Solar Panel off the Elbad holding it.

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies.

Notes: Interesting story scenes at the start, as a few of your force try to
bluff their way into a Jupiterian base to extract information. Unfortunately,
they get noticed all-too-soon, and Kinkedou gets shot in the arm. Your dudes do
escape at least (with Ivis cutting short Banjou's spiel ^^;), but Kinkedou
can't be sortied owing to his gunshot wound.

Your starting enemies are more of the same, although Barns' customized Badara
is a little tougher. When the calvary arrives on turn 2, you can then escape
the map by moving all your units to the northern line of the map, but the
enemies really are simple enough to defeat without needing any silly "escape"
ploy anyway. ^^; Just be careful, as the enemies will usually target either
Ivis or Tobia, both of whom probably won't have amazing dodge rates, so you'd
probably want to throw Concentrate on them to survive the turns.

After the mission, you receive 1 Cecily's Bun.

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies.

Notes: Before the mission begins, you get to choose whether to perform a
diversionary attack (first option), or attack as one whole wave (second
option). I generally recommend the latter, since there's no penalty to it, and
it makes surviving the stage that much easier.

For once, you've actually got a decent amount of enemies to fight, including
4 battleships (including the reinforcement one). Fortunately for you, all of
them are piloted by grunts, so they're not very effective at all. Don't forget
that enemy squads performing squad attacks still get a 20% hit bonus on you,
which can mean trouble for your Real pilots; try and focus on reducing squads
to 1 member instead of completely destroying them.

The AP condition is relatively easy, as long as you don't accidentally fufill
the winning condition; moving a unit onto any of the base squares. 4
battleships is still a lot of HP to take down, but you don't have any time
limits, so simply chip away with your Reals if you need to.

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies within 7 turns.

Notes: It's the requisite Erika-finding stage that appears on all routes; on
this one though, it's your first encounter with non-Crossbone enemies, which
is a nice change, especially given that they have far more trouble hitting
your Reals than the aforementioned Crossbones. ^^;

Unlike the similar missions of the other routes, there's practically a
pre-defined path for you to follow through the mission; first clear out the
Balm forces in the northwest, then move on to the Boazan forces further
northeast. Richter's Garunroll is still tough to deal with this early, and is
especially cruel on squad members who can't dodge. A constant barrage of
attacks will eventually bring it down though. The Skullrook is considerably
easier, as Belgan is a pretty crappy pilot.

To get the AP, you have to kill off everything within 7 turns, whereas the time
limit for the mission is 8. Also don't forget that on turn 3 (or 4...), Kazuya
will move the Daimos away to recover Erika and consequently move him rather
far out of position, so don't rely on him too much.

On Turn 4.5:

Rezun -- Gira Douga[Dual Sensor], Gira Douga
Neo Jion 1 & 2 -- Gelgoog M, Rick Dom II
Neo Jion 3 & 4 -- Zaku II F2 Production Type(2)

AP Condition: Defeat the Crossbone Gundam X2.

Notes: The traitor Zabine makes his second double-crossing in this route, and
makes off with Bella and Belnadette; Annamarie eventually has a change of heart
and escorts Bella back, but the Mother Vanguard will still remain unmovable
throughout the mission, so your lone battleship support will come from the
Daikuu Maryuu.

The first object on the agenda is obviously to show Zabine what happens to
traitors; he always defends, so make sure that before you sortie your squads,
check to see which places are the closest to him, and sortie your strongest
hitting and/or Accelerate squads in them, to catch up with him and nail him
quick. He still dodges incredibly well though, so you'll need either Sure Hit
or the magic of Quick Save/Reset to take him down by the first turn; if you're
a little slow though, don't worry, just make sure you off him before he leaves
the map; squads with Accelerate easily beat his 7-panel movement range.

After dealing with Zabine, you've got the "little" matter of taking on the
full Death Gale Squadron, a battleship and more assorted Crossbone enemies,
all in defensive terrain. If you're patient, I suggest staying near the Mother
Vanguard and letting them come to you instead, as the Death Gale Squadron can
be an absolute bitch to fight when it has defensive cover; not to mention that
setting up shop around the disabled Mother Vanguard also makes it slightly
easier to deal with the enemy reinforcements arriving on turn 4.5. If you can't
be bothered with that though, you can still just rush in and beat on them, with
both sides enhanced by defensive terrain; you'll almost certainly have to use
accuracy-boosting seishin just to have a good chance of hitting the Kuabase in
particular, and when Gilly's Guard activates...

The enemy reinforcements appear a fair distance west from the Mother Vanguard;
usually, most of them will head for the bulk of your force, while maybe one or
two squads approach the Mother Vanguard. The Mother Vanguard can take care of
itself quite easily, and only Rezun is any problem from the enemies, as she
can take damage quite well. Throw whatever you have left at her from your
battle with the Death Gale Squadron; fortunately she doesn't dodge nearly as
well as Gilly, so it'll be considerably easier.

After the battle, Tobia also ends up getting captured by Karas; consequently,
you won't be able to use him in the next scenario. Additionally, Ivis and
Tsugumi will be asked whether they wish to leave the Mother Vanguard; you can
either stay silent or do so voluntarily. As far as I know, the only difference
is that the first one has more conversation with Kinkedou, while the second
has more conversation with Ruu and Four.

Nightmare of Solomon -- Neu Ziel

AP Condition: Defeat the Neu Ziel within 7 turns.

Notes: A 0083 scenario to keep things fresh, and it's the immortal 4th Squadron
against the remants of the Delaz Fleet. The forces may look intimidating, and
indeed they ARE, but thankfully all the major enemies have battle damage,
including the satellite structure itself. Kou will also snap out of his Gato
fixation on turn 3 and gain some nice morale; however, the main initial
problems are still the relatively large amount of enemies against your small
numbers; the Satellite Missiles are especially annoying, have the Albion take
the hit if at all possible. In fact, the Albion will probably be your strongest
initial unit, with its LL size and fairly strong ALL attack. Despite the
obvious outnumberings though, I suggest rushing forward right into the meteor
storm and using it as defensive cover while taking on as many enemies as
possible and casting defensive seishin. Aim for the Satellite Missiles first,
since they'll likely be the first to meet you anyway.

The Mother Vanguard and Daikuu Maryuu arrive to the east, and generally nearer
to the majority of the enemies as the 0083 enemies; rush your squads in, and
the mission will suddenly seem a lot easier. On the enemy turn immediately
after though, Gato appears from nowhere and launches a sneak attack on your
battleships; fortunately enough, Ivis pulls the same trick and starts you on
equal footing again. And FINALLY, the AP condition is shown to you.

The enemies, as stated before, all have significant battle damage, so its not
quite as hard as it looks. The biggest problem is most obviously Gato, and
you have to nail him relatively quickly to get the AP. Kelly is also dangerous
with his MAP attack, and don't overlook that you have to defeat all enemies
within a certain time frame as well.

After the mission, you receive 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Repair Kit and 1 Cartridge.

On Turn 2.5:

Death Gale Squadron -- Kuabase, Arpeggio[Magnetic Coating], Totouga

AP Condition: Destroy the Kuabase.

Notes: The first part isn't covered in the statistics above, and in this stage,
the first part is a straight showdown between Rosemary in the Crossbone Gundam
X2 and Tobia in a Zaku II F2 Production Type; what a fair fight, eh?
Fortunately, the Wing boys pull some sabotage which occurs on turn 3, so just
survive till then; when turn 3 comes around, Tobia lands a good hit, the X2
will have engine failure, and Tobia will automatically power up to full morale.
At this point, Tobia will also have 100% hit and dodge rates on the X2; the big
problem here will be lowering the X2 to critical HP without actually killing
it. If after the events, two hits of either of the Zaku's weapons destroy the
X2 no matter what, you may want to reset back to the start of the stage, and
try your best to land a Heat Hawk in the first two turns to get the X2 to
critical HP with just one hit after. Unfortunately, this only has a 20% or so
chance, so you'll probably need to quick-load a lot. Alternatively, you could
just skip all this trouble and destroy the X2, but then the latter part of the
stage becomes harder, and you'll lose the X2 permanently.

Regardless of the outcome, Tobia escapes with the Wing boys, and are quickly
backed up by the ZZ Gundam Teams. The Wing boys then escape towards the
eastern side of the map; the rest of your dudes should follow up too, since
you're rather heavily outmatched in this scenario, and no reinforcments are
coming to save your ass.

The AP is tied only to the Kuabase, and not the entire Death Gale Squadron
thankfully. Tobia in the X2 will start with 130 morale, so he can activate the
Buster Launcher immediately; if you wish to take out the other squad members as
well, that's probably your best choice. On enemy turns, the Death Gale Squadron
will almost always attack Tobia, so make sure he has Sure Hit or Concentrate
casted, and counter with the Beam Zanba or Sun Buster. The other three squads
have squads, so the squad leader can directly attack the Kuabase; it's likely
that Judouu in the ZZ and the Qubeleys will be helpful in that regard, as the
others are sorta useless. Regardless, as soon as you take out the Kuabase, its
time to hightail it out, since you'll probably be heavily damaged from the
assault, and its a losing condition to lose ANY unit.

It's actually possible to destroy all enemies if you're on a repeat game; this
entails fully upgrading X2's weapons, and perhaps Mobility though. Keep on
using the unlimited-ammo Beam Sabers to cut things up, and the Death Gale
Squadron will likely be much easier too; Tobia can literally take on the whole
Jupiterian forces by himself with a souped up X2, but the Thousand Jupiter
always defends and retreats below half of its 150k HP anyway, so don't bother
with it.

AP Condition: Defeat the Skullrook, which retreats below 6000 HP.

Notes: And some time after the requisite Erika-finding stage, we get the
requisite Erika-losing stage. It's your typical battle against the Balm-Boazan
Alliance otherwise, with a bit of Zera thrown in as well. On turn 2, Erika
makes her escape in a Gulver FX II and gets picked up by Raiza, and Kazuya
becomes horribly out of position(again) and goes down to 50 morale; you can
pretty much leave him there after that. ^^;

The AP condition is easier now that you do have a decent Support Attacker in
Ivis's Alterion; of course, if you've given something else like Banjou
Support Attack already (somehow), you could use that too. Your best bet will
probably be either Sun Attack or Chodenji Ball V Letter Slash, supported by
G-Accel Driver(in CF for Daitarn, DF for Voltes). The latter is the better
solution for romantics, obviously. ^^;

AP Condition: Have the Alterion reach the Musaka within 4 turns.

Notes: This time, it's the Neo Jion forces who're clamouring for a clash; at
least Banpresto are mixing up the enemies around a bit. ^^; You also get to
fight several of the Federation's MP Gundam F91s, but they're lone squads, and
are killed rather easily in a single squad attack. Harrison in his customized
black MP F91 is only slightly better, and the rest of the starting forces are
just your typical Real Robot grunts.

The AP condition simply requires you to have the Alterion move its full range
every turn, and you can get next to the Musaka in 4 turns easily. You may have
to clear some of the traffic with your other squads first, but squads with
Accelerate should be able to even outpace the Alterion anyway, and should be
effective enough in clearing a straight path for the Alterion to rush to.

Once you do regardless of whether enemies remain, the Wing boys bust into the
catapults and emerge with their respective Gundams; Zechs and Gyunei come out
quickly after, and of course whenever you see Zechs, you can expect Heero to
be around, in his Wing Zero Custom. Both Zechs and Gyunei are considerably
tougher cookies, with Zechs having a rather strong ALL attack in its Mega
Cannon, and Gyunei being one of the best dodgers around. Sure Hit remedies this
quite nicely though, and now might be a good time to practice using defensive
seishin on non-active squad members to survive ALL attacks. Zechs also starts
getting extremely hard to take down as the battle goes on, thanks to his Guard
ability, so it's recommended to take him down first, Gyunei soon after, then
it's just cleanup from there.

After the mission, you receive 1 Minovsky Craft, 2 Dust Adapters, 2 Screw
Modules, 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Cartridge, 1 Repair Kit, 1 Mass Produced Gundam
F91 and 1 GP-01 Full Vernier.

Silver Shooting Star -- Alterion(CF)

Reinforcement Squads: None

Starting Enemy Squads

Scarlet Comet -- Vegarion

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Don't let Ivis get defeated.

Notes: A pretty unique mission; Suray makes her first appearance, and after
some angsting about her dead brother, demands Ivis to surrender the Alterion;
you can either do so or not, with the only difference being that doing so lets
Ivis be berated by Tsugumi some. Both ways, it ends up being a fight between
the Silver Shooting Star and the Scarlet Comet, but it's not exactly a very
fair one; Suray starts at 150 morale, and the Vegarion has the annoying Bunshin
ability, while Ivis is limited to 80 morale and cannot gain any more even if
you gave her morale boosting skills, not to mention not being able to use any
seishin. Your main goal is simply to survive the 4 turns that this mission
lasts without letting Ivis get defeated; move the Alterion near one of the
battleships to benefit from its leadership aura, and simply quick-save and
dodge every turn.

Once again, if you're on a replay game, it's entirely possible to destroy the
Vegarion; you'll just have to be relatively lucky, since unless you modified
Ivis's stats heavily, she'll only get a 40-50% hit percentage on the Vegarion,
and factoring in Bunshin, that's a pretty low chance of successfully hitting.
With fully upgraded weapons though, you only need to hit 3 or 4 times to
destroy it, and you get at least 6 chances not counting quick-save.

AP Condition: Destroy all initial enemies before turn 4.

Notes: This will be your first encounter with Brain Powered enemies, or Gran
Chers as they're known. They're not the main problem in this stage though; the
main problem is the incredibly water-logged stage, which the flight-capable and
amphibious Gran Chers are completely oblivious to, but chances are your force
will be struggling. Before the mission starts, try and make as many flying
squads as possible; you'll need at least 5-7 if you're aiming for the AP.

All of the Gran Chers start at the west, and these are S-sized, highly
manuverable units; if you're using Super Robot leaders (which is likely, since
they're some of the few units you have which can fly), you'll probably have to
throw on at least a Concentrate to get a decent hit percentage on them. Since
Jonathan and Shira also gain morale pretty fast, by the time you deal with
their flunky Gran Chers, they've probably amassed enough morale to activate
their Chakra Shields, which practically makes ALL and squad members' attacks
useless. Of course, it doesn't need that much mentioning that both the face
characters have far better stats than the average Reclaimer pilot as well, and
you'll almost certainly need a smattering of Sure Hit to take care of them.
It's really fortunate that they have relatively poor armour and HP, eh? The AP
basically means that you have to rush your way through quickly; killing Shira
and Jonathan will make their squads retreat as well, so don't worry about them.

On turn 1.5, Yuu and Kanan show up in Gran Chers, but rush away from the
battle; on the other hand on turn 2, two Brains send from the Novis Noah arrive
to help your guys out, and stick around even after all the Gran Chers are
defeated to combat the Alliance reinforcements that show up in the northeast.

When these Alliance enemies DO arrive, Halleck is among them, and challenges
Kazuya to a duel; you can either accept or decline, and you might want to
accept, as it might change a plot point later. Regardless of what you pick,
they end up having their duel anyway in the southeast corner of the map.
Halleck is in a 12,000 HP Dari, but still dies to a couple of Reppuu Sekken
Zukis (you DID upgrade Daimos's EN, right? ^^;). When you kill him, though, all
the other Alliance enemies retreat; if you can afford it, try to have Kazuya
block or use the Invincibility Seishin to neutralize Halleck's attacks, while
you deal with the rest of the Alliance enemies first for the EXP, money and
items...er, item.

Notes: You're forced to use Super Robots against a whole mess of Dokugas;
anti-climatically, they're mostly weak Impactor ships, which can be destroyed
in nearly any ALL attack, and both your starting units have them.

In truth, this is a logically simple scenario; you have 4 squads, lots of weak
enemies, and one really strong enemy. Kelknuckle is the only real problem, as
his Ram attack with his Ship can easily halve any of your Supers' HP, so you'll
have to use defensive seishin to the maximum to survive; not to mention that he
has an annoying Damage -10% Squad Leader skill too. Regardless, a continued
barrage of defensive-seishin-enhanced attacks should slowly but surely take him
down. The AP isn't a problem either; it'll probably be really difficult to
actually take Kelknuckle before any of his flunkies, since you NEED the morale
from defeating them to combat Kelknuckle.

herself. Just head a little north and await the reinforcements to come.

When they do, you have to let the Alterion reach the pre-defined point, in
order to save the little girl there. If you don't care about APs, you can
pretty much just rush her over there and force the retreat of all the Gran
Chers then; if you've got patience and skillz though, you can try and defeat
-all- the Gran Cher Squads, up to 18 of them not including the non-generics.
The Gran Chers are more or less the same as the ones you've fought two missions
ago, and should be dealt with accordingly.

Once you reach the designated point, Ivis manages to coax the little girl into
the Alterion (and you finally get to see Ivis smile ^^;). Suray then shows up
to spoil the moment, and you have to fight her again with Ivis down to 80

Notes: The first introduction of GaoGaiGar and the Zondar. The GaiGar is
unsurprisingly outmatched at first, and when you knock the Zondar below a
certain amount of HP, it casts Great Perseverance on itself anyway, so I
suggest having Gai cast Invincibility just in case, then try to dodge the
Zondar's attacks.

On Turn 2, the Brains show up to help; they face the same Great Perseverance
problem though, so it's not advisable to ping it too hard. Finally on turn 3,
GaiGar fusions into GaoGaiGar, and you can finally damage the Zondar without
worrying about its regeneration.

After you kill it and watch the pretty colours after, it becomes a Dokuga
scenario quite similar to the one you faced 2 scenarios ago, except that you
have far more resources at your disposal this time. The enemy commander this
time is the ever-fruity Bundol, who's about the only dangerous enemy on the
stage, with his ALL attacks and his interesting Squad Leader Skill, which does
+20% damage to males and -20% damage to females(^^;). Even then, it's easy to
make him retreat using standard tactics.

If you want the AP, you by now should've purchased Support Attack for at least
one of your Supers, so two finishers in a row should do well over 7000 HP
damage.

Yamada Empire 3, 5, 7, 9 -- Rucon
Yamada Empire 4, 6, 8, 10 -- Garuga

AP Condition: Prevent the Yamada No Orochi from attacking the Wild Base.

Notes: Your first introduction to Kotetsu Jeeg, and it's a relatively simple
one. Miwa doesn't have to face the initial two enemies herself for very long,
but she could probably take both anyway; having Jeeg just makes the process go
much faster.

Once the initial enemies are defeated, reinforcements on both sides come;
you're still forced to use mostly Supers, and Jeeg doesn't really have THAT
good a dodging percentage against most of the enemies, but at least you get
two healing units to go around. The enemies are also single units only, so
they're easily dealt with; this is practically a scenario straight out of
another SRW, with lack of squads and all. ^^;

The Yamada No Orochi practically makes a straight dash for the Wild Base, so
you'd best surround it with 4 units before it gets within firing range. Once
you do, standard tactics, albeit this time with limited resources, will win
the day.

AP Condition: Defeat all initial enemies within 6 turns.

Notes: It's the Gran Cher fest, with tons and tons of Gran Chers to take down.
Also, Yuu joins up with your group with his Brain, and unlocks the Chakra
Extension combination attack with Hime. Most of the Gran Chers start pretty
far away in the southeastern area; go ahead and rush your forces their way, but
flying squads will have a major advantage, since city terrain is rather harsh
on land-bound squads; if you have a generous amount of flying squads, you'll
probably want to send all your flying squads to combat the initial Gran Chers,
while the rest hang back a bit for the enemy reinforcements.

Speaking of them, they show up after several Gran Cher squads have been blown
up, towards the east; rather far away if you'd sent everyone towards the
initial enemies. Hyouryou and Enryou show up to help cover that side though,
and 1 turn later, form into Choryuujin; back them up with whatever squads you
left behind, although it's actually possible to defeat all the Gran Cher
reinforcements with just Hyouryou, Enryou and later Choryuujin alone (like I
did ^^;).

After cleaning up the Gran Chers, a giant tidal wave is detected heading for
G Island City; the Brains and Choryuujin then perform a improv combination
attack in a kickass map sequence. Enjoy the scenes after; when they rip off
anime scenes, they REALLY rip them straight off...^^;

This ends the first 19 Ivis-specific scenarios. You can now proceed to the main
route; to do it quickly, well, just look down. ^^;

On turn 5:

Balm Army 7 -- Klein

AP Condition: Defeat the Skullrook.

Notes: Don't even try to take down that group of enemies with just Nana.
Although she's not TOO horrible a pilot, there's no way you'll have the
firepower from the Gulver alone to take them all down. Instead, wait for
Kazuya to make his appearance and talk some sense into the little whiner, and
then you can actually start putting some damage on the Alliance enemies.

One turn later, the calvary show up to make things look even easier. At this
point, you should start sending the majority of your dudes to the northwest if
your main character is Ivis or Zengar, or eastwards if your main character is
Arad, or southwest for Kusuha, once again in anticipation for reinforcements.

When the enemy reinforcements arrive, it's Erika and Hainel!   Well, obviously
not, but those silly Gou brothers and Kazuya seem to think so. Unfortunately,
this also allows Belgan to use some sort of device that lowers everyone's
morale by 50 points, and disables seishin. Although this means that the damage
you can do is lowered rather drastically, I still suggest heading towards the
enemies, and taking out whatever you left behind with the squads you left
behind. I do however suggest switching all your Squad Leaders to Reals, since
Supers will take a LOT more damage from the morale decrease, and dodging
prowess isn't affected.

Survive up to turn 5, and three vaguely animal'ish robots appear and hit
Belgan for... rather paltry damage. Fortunately though, this has the effect
of destroying the device, and all your dudes regain the 50 morale they lost,
which would make this another standard scenario.

That is, until the Klein appears, which is a crazy little teleporting mecha,
but more importantly, holds both Halleck and Erika, and has to be reduced to
below 1000 HP within three turns of it appearing. It appears right next to
Kazuya, who should be able to handle him fairly well; the big problem is not
accidentally killing it. In other words, if you have Mercy, use it.

If you were perpetually moving your dudes in their subsequent direction the
entire time, you should be able to reach Belgan and Raiza well before the time
limit for the AP. Commence the fireworks, disable the Klein, and watch the
drama.

After the mission, if your main character is Zengar, you receive 1 Minovsky
Craft, 1 Dust Adapter, 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Repair Kit and 1 Cartridge. If your
main character is Ivis, you receive 1 Minovsky Craft, 3 Dust Adapters, 2 Screw
Modules, 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Cartridge and 1 Repair Kit. If your main
character is Arad, you receive 1 Minovsky Craft, 1 Dust Adapter, 1 Propellant
Tank, 1 Cartridge and 1 Repair Kit. If your main character is Kusuha, you get
the short end of the stick with 1 Minovsky Craft, 1 Propellant Tank, 1
Cartridge and 1 Repair Kit.

Zondar -- Impactor
Zondar -- Rick Dom II
Zondar -- Giro

AP Condition: Clear the map within 7 turns.

Notes: Well, here's a change. Instead of fighting tons of Super Robot enemies,
or tons of Real Robot enemies, you get to fight them all at once. ^^; As you
can see from those stats, the sheer number of them is impressive, and the
squads mean that your Reals are in more danger of being hit, thanks to the 20%
hit bonus. Besides that though, it's really basically one giant melee between
your force and the Zondars.

on turn 2, Guy manages to fuse into GaoGaiGar manually, and even drags three
of your Squads with him to the eastern part of the map. This generally leaves
them slightly better placed to strike at the enemies. I suggest approaching
mostly from the east and southeast, so that all your forces can fire upon them
from the same place; it's not a good idea to split up, since a massive wave of
attacks can wear down even the toughest of Supers, or nail a few hits on the
fastest of Reals. As long as you attack as a group and focus all your attacks
on one Squad at a time, you should do fine; even the EI-15 should be no
problem. Just remember using Hell And Heaven is a losing condition here, so
don't try to be TOO much of a romantic. ^^; If you're aiming for the AP, try
to at least kill the EI-15 by Turn 5.

The real problem comes after you defeat EI-15. When the EI-20 shows up,
it uses yet another magical wave that completely disables every one of your
units. You can dodge and defend, but not attack or move or even use Seishin;
as with the previous mission, I suggest switching your Squad Leaders to Reals,
and dodging everything that's thrown your way. Survive this onslaught for two
turns, and Goldimarg slams into the EI-20 to disable the wave. At this point,
you can use Hammer Hell And Heaven. Weaken the EI-20, destroy the squad if you
wish, and watch the adrenaline-pumping Hammer Hell And Heaven in action.

After the stage, you'll receive 1 Repair Kit, 1 Propellant Tank and 1
Cartridge. The GaoGaiGar units also join your squad permanently.

thrown in too, for those who like that sort of thing.

The mission itself is really pretty standard. The reinforcements show up to

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat Gallery and Bat within 6 turns.

Notes: Time to take down Machineland. If you've played SRW Alpha Gaiden Hard
mode, you know what to expect; the Magma Cannon, which targets 4 random
squares at the start of your turn after turn 1. If they do hit, they'll damage
the whole squad for half HP; if you're unlucky enough to get hit by it, use
the Friendship Seishin just to make sure that they won't get completely nuked
on the next turn. ^^; The dialogue is also especially funny, as everyone
taunts the Kyoryuu force about how they know about the Magma Cannon, and that
the Kyoryuu have no future.

The enemies are standard either extremely low 2500 HP ships, or high HP and
Armour mechasauruses. They're pretty standard enemies, but the AP may be of
some concern, since both start pretty far away from your forces. Constant use
of Accelerate should leave you within fighting range by turn 4 though, leaving
you a couple of turns to destroy the Kyoryuu generals.

Additionally, if you've fufilled all the other requirements for convincing
Radora, you can then persuade him with Ryouma. He won't join you, but you can
defeat him afterwards safely.

After you beat up the Kyoryuu, Gol shows up and shows off his hostage; the
Getter team try to sacrifice themselves in exchange for the hostage, but of
COURSE there's no way the villain would leave the proposal as simple as that.
^^; Your dudes are forced to retreat after, leaving a disabled Getter Dragon

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Destroy Bat, Gallery and Gol within 8 turns.

Notes: Once again, I'll only cover the first part here. It's an obviously
impossible situation anyway; Musashi in the Black Getter and Michiru in the
Ready Command VS fifty bajillion Kyoryuu squads. You CAN actually take down
a few of the Jet Units if you wish, but it's not really worth it. Just survive
for two turns, and you get a sweet map animation of Musashi performing the
Dai-Setsu-Ran-Oroshi on Gol using the Black Getter, and Guy using the Dividing
Driver immediately after. And then the real mission starts.

It's an all-out mano-el-mano firefight between you and the Kyoryuus; your
forces occupy the southern area, and the Kyoryuus most of the north. I suggest
splitting your force into two groups, one handling the western enemies and the
other handling the eastern ones, then both of them converging onto the Soris
and Gol. If you've followed the conditions, you should send Getter Team 1 to
the west; have Ryouma fight Radora once to initiate another conversation, and
leave him alive after.

Bat and Gallery are easy enough to dispose of, as are their flunkies. Gol,
predictably, is a different cookie altogether. 50,000 HP combined with extreme
armour and the easy ability to wipe any unit of yours out in one single hit.
Fortunately, almost all your Super pilots and most of your Real pilots should
be learning Hot Blood by now, which will help greatly in defeating Gol before
he can put TOO much hurt on your dudes. Just don't forget the defensive
seishin either...^^;

Depending on whether you convinced Radora correctly, the ending to this
scenario will be different. If you didn't, Musashi will stay behind and
sacrifice himself to defeat Gol (and you get to hear Ryouma scream his name
^^;). If you did, both Getters will stay behind and perform a combination
attack to defeat Gol, but Radora drags them both back. Unfortunately, Musashi
will only be a permanent co-pilot of the Ready Command, but you can still have
Ryouma use the Black Getter if you wish, and you get an EXCELLENT support unit
in the process.

After the stage, you'll receive 1 Minovsky Craft, 1 Propellant Tank, 1
Repair Kit and 1 Cartridge.

Notes: As with the previous two missions, the Real route is basically the same
as the Super route; the main difference is the impossibility of convincing
Radora, which the different AP condition also reflects. The enemies are also
slightly less, but are concentrated on one side rather than split up, which may
be easier or harder depending on your own squads. Otherwise, everything said in

After 5 or less enemy squads remain;

Himika -- Yamada no Orochi, Gyao(2)
Yamada Empire 15 & 17 -- Gyao(2)
Yamada Empire 16 & 18 -- Girala(2)

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

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating Himika.

Notes: You get to choose the attack method on the Yamada empire before the
stage starts; either you send a recon force of Jeeg and two other Squads, or
send the whole force at once. The first option covers the former, and the
second option covers the latter. The only real difference is that the number
of enemies are slightly more if you choose the second option.

Regardless, it's the final(?) battle with the Haniwa goons, and they're STILL
as weak as ever, having some of the lowest Armour for super robot enemies.
Still, you have to be a little careful not to receive a game over; you have
to defeat the Girala(s) within 4 turns or its zee endo. If you're playing the
first option, then simply rush one squad towards the Girala to finish it; it
defends on your turn, but attacks on the enemy's, so it shouldn't be too hard.
If you're playing the second option, you'll have to split your forces AND
rush the two Giralas on the opposite sides of the map. Make sure that Jeeg is
in the stronger party, since the reinforcements for the enemy generally show
up near him.

Once it, or they, are down, Gorgon makes his appearance, along with a few
Mikene flunkies, and Himika appears after you kill too many of hers. If you
chose the first route, you can just converge on them as one massive wave of
destruction, but if you chose the second route, it's probably more efficient
to have the squad that took out the eastern Girala take out Gorgon, while the
western squad prepares for Himika. Both ways, the real threat is Himika
herself; she has 70,000 HP, insane aiming and power, and can fry squads rather
easily. Once again, save up your best Hot Blood hits for her, and remember to
kill everyone else off first for the AP. Note that all the Mikenes will run if
Gorgon is defeated, so if you're a perfectionist, save him for second last.

After the intermission, you'll get to choose whether to help the Novis Noah
(first choice) or combat the Neo Jion forces (second choice). They both
essentially go through the same stages, except you get certain things earlier
on different routes, so go ahead and choose whichever one you want.

AP Condition: Destroy all enemies within 7 turns.

Notes: Jonathan and Shira show up again to bother your guys even more. The
starting forces are obviously far too little to not expect reinforcements;
don't send too many squads to the northwest. I generally suggest sending your
land-bound squads northwest, and having the rest move southeast, once again
in anticipation for the Zondar forces that appear soon after.

Edgar appears in the northern area of the map on turn 3, and almost made me
think he was going to Hyperize. ^^; Thankfully he doesn't, and his Gran Cher
isn't that much more different than Jonathan's. It still has more HP and Edgar
starts with lots of morale though; regardless, the land-bound squads you sent
northwest-wards should be able to deal with her.

You've already faced the EI-07 before, and its really no more difficult now.
The AP is also easy if you split up your forces like I recommended. After the

simple one. Cima takes up to 3 or 4 turns to reach the northern edge of the
map, and although your land-bound squads will find it difficult to move through
the terrain, your flying squads(well, I HOPE you have them ^^;) should be able
to catch up with her by turn 2. You'll have to absorb the shots of the grunt
mobile suits while charging towards Cima, but they aren't hard to dodge, or
for your Supers to take.

Besides Cima, the other Neo Jion forces are standard stuff that you've dealt
with several times before, and the same can be said of the Gran Chers that
show up in the northwest corner of the map afterwards. Quincy has a
head-achingly foreshadowish conversation with Yuu after, assuming you deployed
him of course.

One turn after reinforcements appear:

Zonekaiser -- Zonekaiser

AP Condition: Clear initial enemies within 4 turns.

Notes: The initial enemy squads are spread out all around the Big Falcon; it's
generally optimal to split up your group once again into two squads, one which
handles the western enemies, and one which handles the eastern side. Of course,
your Flyers could also use the Big Falcon for some recovery should they need
it. The AP condition is easily fufilled this way.

When the reinforcements come, you get a nasty, if familiar surprise; all your
units get their morale decreased to 50. A few units are unaffected though;
mainly the Gou brothers in Voltes V and the AI-powered units like Volfogg,
Goldimarg, Hyouryou and Enryou; this is because Belgan uses Boazan poison,
which Boazans are immune to (and obviously AI can't be poisoned). Despite this,
it's actually not impossible to still kick a fair amount of alliance ass; you
just have to be more careful with your attacks, and again, Reals as Squad
Leaders rule the day, especially since all the damage-reducing barriers require
100 morale.

Unfortunately, once the Zonekaiser appears and attacks one of your squads, a
bunch of story events occur; basically, the Zonekaiser takes no damage from
whatever attack you used, then  Kazuya gets overconfident and gets his ass
kicked. The AI brothers then attempt to take it down since they're one of the
few unaffected by the poison, and get their ass kicked as well, but somehow
manage to damage the Zonekaiser. Shishiou that gets an idea, and forces
everyone to retreat(couldn't you let us finish everything ELSE off first?...).
You can actually sidestep this entirely as long as you don't let the Zonekaiser
show off its special armour and kill everything else off first, but it happens
within a set number of turns as well, so don't dilly-dally if you're heading
for that route.

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies within 7 turns.

Notes: Yes, you read those stats right. It's your force against a whole army
of those brave, indomitable Zakus. I'll give you a couple of minutes to laugh
like an evil maniac.




Now that you're back, this mission is actually far harder than it looks and
sounds. Although Zakus are almost invariably weak mobile suits, these ones are
pumped up further than you can imagine. For one, they all have S ranks on land,
which makes a rather big difference; they actually get 40+% hit rates on your
Reals(thanks to the Squad Attack bonus), and can take out most Reals in two
hits. They also do acceptable damage to Supers, and Supers even with the 20%
accuracy bonus from Squad Attacks may still find it reasonably troublesome to
hit those buggers; less to be said about your squad members. Most annoyingly,
all the starting Zakus have Support Defense, which makes it -rather- hard for
you to nuke them in one hit while you're still at low morale.

My advice? Don't skimp on the seishin. Cast Concentrate on every turn for your
Reals that they may have lots of fire coming onto them; use Sure Hit for your
Supers and even some of your Squad Members if that's what it takes to nuke the
Zakus in one hit, and use as many Hot Blooded ALL attacks as possible to nuke
those squads of two Zakus quickly and painlessly.

The reinforcement Zakus show up on both of the rock outcroppings on the map,
three each; prepare for them in advance by pre-casting Concentrate or Iron Wall
or whatever defensive Seishin you have handy. On turn 4.5, Peter also decides
its a good idea to rush you, and the otherwise-unmoving Zakus near the rocket
start moving towards your group.

For just clearing the map, I suggest sending some of your strongest groups
towards the northwest perpetually, gaining morale when they can, and casting
defensive seishin on nearly every turn, while the remainder of your forces hang
back just a little and perform clean-up, as well as dealing with the
reinforcements on turns 3.5 and 4.5. You should be able to reach Peter by
turn 5, or 6 at the very least; concentrate your squads on him, and when he
goes down, the mission ends. Of course, if you want the AP, you'll have to
clear every one of those damned Zakus before you destroy Peter; use a good
ALL Attack to take out the ones supporting Peter.

Boazan Army 3 & 4 -- Desla, Boazan Fighter Ship

AP Condition: Defeat at least three of the Grodectors, all of whom retreat at
below 10,000 HP.

Notes: It's time to put a sock in that cocky Richter's mouth, and you can do
that right from the very start by destroying the Zonekaiser. The ease of this
depends on how much you've spent on Daimos' weapons and EN; if you have fully
upgraded EN, there's practically no worry, as you have the luxury of taking
your time since you have 4 shots of the new Reppuu Sekken Zuki Kai, which is
the only thing that can damage the Zonekaiser.

Once you're done with that, Aizam becomes the next person to challenge Kazuya
to a duel. His Gimeria is a little tougher than the Zonekaiser, and similarly
can only be damaged by the Reppuu Sekken Zuki Kai, but thankfully Daimos's
HP, EN and Kazuya's Seishin are completely refilled. He should be able to
easily take Aizam, while your squad has the "little" matter of dealing with
Richter and his 65000++ HP Cobrad, with rather low morale to start with.

As soon as you finish off Aizam, you should rush Daimos back to the rest of
your forces; they would probably need the help with the Cobrad at this point,
and you acn't really take all the Dark Horror forces that appear soon after
with just Kazuya anyway.

After you deal with Richter though, it becomes a (admittedly missing in recent
scenarios) Super enemy scenario again, with only the Grodectors any real
threat. Even those "only" top up at around 28,000 HP, and as long as you had
the presence of mind to save SOME seishin for them and not use it all against
Richter, a Hot Blooded finisher supported by a decent attack should be enough
to finish all 4 of them, getting the AP in the process.

After Sea Snake is destroyed:

Richter -- Cobrad[Hybrid Armour]
Balm Army 5 & 6 -- Zonekaiser
Balm Army 7 -- Gimeria

AP Condition: Clear the map within 8 turns.

Notes: The first thing you'll notice about the map is how much WATER there is.
There's practically only two very small bits of land, towards the east; this
means that your squads that can't fly are basically useless, since you need
to have all 4 members good in Water in order to move freely through it, and
that's generally far less likely than having 4 members who can fly. In other
words, you need lots of preparation if you want the AP; having at least 6 to
8 flying squads help immensely, and of course, the more the merrier.

Both ways, you're facing the alliance once again, and most probably unlike your
own forces, the majority of their squads can fly. ^^; It's most of the Boazan
to the east, and most of the Balm to the west; you should send a stronger
force towards the west, not only because the enemies there are somewhat
stronger, but because you'll have to face the reinforcements there later too.
It's also most preferable to send the Daimos squadron with the western forces
too, for reasons to become obvious later.

On every enemy turn, the Sea Snake spits out 3 missiles. These are suicide
missiles who explode upon impact, and are actually pretty weak, but shouldn't
really be bothered with, since they have 10,000 HP, too much to really deal
with especially if you're aiming for the AP. Instead, just rush your
battleships forward and let them take the hits, as the missiles are invariably
attracted to them like flies to honey.

You shouldn't forget that the main goal is to destroy the Sea Snake. It has
around 50,000 HP, but fortunately, it won't hit back and has poor armour. Once
you DO destroy it, the annoying missiles stop regenerating, but more
importantly, this forces Richter and his guardians to come out to play. The
Gimeria here can only be damaged by Daimos's Reppuu Sekken Zuki Kai, which is
why I suggested you send him with the western force originally. The Cobrad
is slightly more worrying, and you'll know why if you read the notes for the
other route; 65,000 HP, and takes hits rather well, and can dish out the
damage. Fortunately, unlike the other route, your dudes should have the morale
to execute their best attacks and take him out far quicker.

8 turns is pretty steep if you don't have many flying squads, but if you
prepared for it beforehand, the AP shouldn't be as hard as it may look.

Notes: It's MORE annoying Gran Chers to face. The starting forces are cake
compared to what you've already faced before. Quincy has the same conversation
with Yuu as in stage 26 of the Neo Jion route, although this time Kant helps
the talk along a little.

Even the Meganoids who show up later aren't much cop; they mostly consist of
the weak Aiai ships, with only the Death Spider and the Megaborgs themselves
proving any sort of stability. If you've destroyed Quincy by the time they come
around, Yuu will rush over to the western area where Banjou shows up; you can
then launch a two-pronged attack on the Meganoids, with Banjou's leadership
skill proving very useful in this stage.

The AP is easy, even though Henmel has a damage-reducing Leadership skill;
Banjou's +40% Attack Power against him easily overrides his +10% Defense. ^^;
As far as anyone knows, the Queen Mantha isn't obtainable, unfortunately.

They're of slightly different design than the Brains you're experienced with,

with, and they're as easy to deal with as ever. I do however suggest that
you don't kill the last enemy squad until you're good and ready, with a few
good squads in the northwestern corner where the Gran Chers started, and maybe
a few other squads in or near the southwestern corner.

When you're ready, deal the finishing blow, and Henmel and friends come out.
By now, you should be perfectly ready for them and the Budagiln that shows up;
The objective of the mission becomes to destroy the Budagiln in 5 turns, and
you should be able to do so in 1. If you wish though, go ahead and finish off
Henmel first for the AP, take out some of the Aiais and the Queen Mantha, and
maybe wait a turn for Edgar to come out, to get the Bio Sensor he holds.

On Turn 5:

Mireze -- Megaborg Mireze[Hybrid Armour]

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies and save Banjou's assistants before defeating
Koros.

Notes: Koros opens up some odd dimension-based weapon that traps the training
Hiroshi and Tetsuya, along with Banjou, into another dimension. From here,
she then wussily retreats to the southwestern corner and leaves your guys to
their own devices. Figures.

Your opening opponents are Aiai squads, and Great and Daitarn can easily take
them by themselves, especially Great with his ALL attacks. It's a little
tougher for the Jeeg Head to be competitive, since it doesn't posess any
attack that can kill an Aiai in one hit, which is pretty damn bad. ^^; If
you're brave, you can still have him take one of the three nearest groups of
enemies; you will probably have to cast plenty of Concentrate for insurance,
though. An alternative would be to have him support Banjou, to clear out that
squad of enemies faster since the Daitarn 3 has no ALL attacks, and the Dai
Fighter's ALL attack is only range 1.

On Turn 4, Jeeg will suddenly become a lot more useful when it switches into
Panzaroid mode. At this point, Great should be done with his squad, and should
be either working on the squad you ignored, or helping Jeeg anyway. By turn 4,
you should be able to defeat all the initial 9 squads of Aiais nearest to you.

And right on cue on Turn 5, your dudes show up. Megaborg Mireze also does, and
reveals that all of Banjou's assistants are being held captive in the Death
Spiders; you have to reduce them to below 1000 HP without killing them, or its
game over. Extensive use of Mercy, or well-managed Squad Attacks and mid-game
saves help tremendously here. Otherwise, Koros in the Budagiln is actually
somewhat troublesome; it's no worse than the Cobrad you've faced though, and
should be approached as such. Once again, Banjou's Leadership skill can really
put the hurt on Koros, especially if you upgraded Daitarn's weapons.

For the AP, simply do everything before taking out Koros. Not very hard to do,
since Koros tends to hang back anyway and will likely be the last opponent
to actually approach you.

AP Condition: Clear the map within 8 turns.

Notes: The first, uncovered above, part of the stage is a straight-out fight
between Daitarn 3 and Megaborg Kidogar. You're actually allowed to lose this
fight, which is likely if you haven't bothered upgrading Daitarn 3, but if
you've given him some standard upgrades, then it's very much possible to
destroy Kidogar for the cash, and it doesn't affect what happens after.

Regardless of what happens, Koros then appears and traps both you and Kidogar
using the same dimension weapon in the other route. Kidogar is then usable for
a few turns; I suggest moving him far away from the Aiais as possible, while
rushing Daitarn 3 towards the Death Spider and destroying as few of the Aiais
in your way as possible. Transform Daitarn 3 into the Dai Fighter as well, for
more movement range and the ALL attack. Your goal is to attack the Death Spider
with Banjou, in order to free his assistants trapped inside(yes, it's almost
the same as the other route).

Likely before that can happen, turn 3 comes around along with the calvary,
and Kidogar will "retreat". When Daitarn 3 actually does attack the Death
Spider though, Kidogar will re-appear right next to it and launch a surprise
attack. He still retreats afterwards after being damaged by Mireze, though.

As for the AP, send a few squads with good ALL attacks a little northwards
to deal with the hordes of Aiais that Banjou left behind. This also has the
added-on effect of huge morale gains for the rest of your team, making it
that much easier to lay waste to the rest of the Meganoids. To make it even
easier, all of them rush you once you save Banjou's assistants, so the AP is
easily obtainable.

Kukuru -- Ma Guraga[Bio Sensor], Girala(2)

AP Condition: Destroy all enemies within 6 turns.

Notes: I kept the results of the Novis Noah route when going on with the
walkthrough.

Don't be fooled by the pre-battle intermission screen; you DO have to sortie
squads out in this mission, so don't go slacking on squad maintenance if they
need it; although thereotically if you wanted too, you could go out with a
half-assed force and still easily win the day against the (relatively) measly
enemies. The only big thing to note about the enemies on this stage is that
some of them possess the Support Defense skill, which makes them slightly
more annoying to kill, but still easy all the same.

Zengar and his Grungast Sanshiki won't be available for this mission; that's
because after all the initial enemies are cleared out and everyone inside the
motherships ready for entry into space, Kukuru shows up to spoil everyone's
day. Zengar comes out to combat her, and gets the captains to launch without
him; he then takes on Kukuru alone, but isn't much of a match for her, and
gets his beloved Zankantou shot far away from him, and his Sanshiki disabled.
It all looks bleak, doesn't it?

Then enter Elz...ahem, Retsuel, who manages to run a distraction ploy on
Kukuru at least. You then have Retsuel in his Huckebein Mk III Trombe, and a
useless Zengar against Kukuru and her Giralas. Unfortunately, the Support
Defenses of the Giralas mean that it's basically impossible to do any sort of
damage to Kukuru, and even if you could, her Machine Cells would heal them
anyway. Just have Retsuel survive a turn.

And when you do, Robert and Viletta launch the Dynamic General Guardian for
Zengar to use against Kukuru. Of course, being the simplist he is, Zengar
decides the name is too long and decides to call it by the first three
syllables of each word: "Dai Zen Gar". Oyyyyy. ^^; Even after all this
posturing though, Zengar is STILL unable to get the Daizengar up to speed, and
has to spend another turn in useless mode, and Retsuel has to hang on for
another turn.

On the next turn, it's obvious that the DaiZenGar needs some weapons, and in a
wickedly-cool map animation, Retsuel rushes off the map, and returns, throwing
the forgotten Zankantou towards Zengar, which he catches and neatly poses with.
Now you can wreak some REAL destruction; I first suggest having Retsuel do a
direct attack on one of the Giralas, to use up the other Giralas' support
defense; then have Zengar use his strongest move on the same Girala, which
should kill it. On the next turn, have Zengar do the same for the other Girala,
which will remove Kukuru's Support Defenses. Finally on the turns after, you
can attack Kukuru directly; two good Hot Blooded attacks, even factoring in
the bit of healing she gets in between, should do the business.

After the mission, you receive 1 GS Light.

AP Condition: Defeat ???, which retreats below 7000 HP.

Notes: The ??? up there is really ??? according to the game, since you're not
supposed to know what it is, Just FYI. ^^;

Anyway, Bullet in the Tiger Lord Machine comes to bring Kusuha back to his
"master", and almost manages to succeed in convincing her to come with him;
that is, until Viletta and Elzam come in to break the quasi-mind control Bullet
was using, and help you with taking the Tiger Lord Machine down; or rather,
taking out its T-Link device by lowering the Tiger Lord Machine down below 3000
HP. Viletta and Elzam aren't actually that much help with this; your main
damage dealer will likely be Kusuha, and go ahead and use up all her SP on
doing as much damage as possible to Tiger Lord Machine, with a little support
from Elzam and Viletta.

Once you do, the Tiger Lord Machine seems to have powered down, and Bullet's
mask cracks open; then it all starts going to hell as the Custos appear and
this time personally invites Kusuha and the Dragoner Machine to join it; Kusuha
refuses though, stating that the Ryuohki had ran away from it, and there had to
be a reason why that happened; she'd rather believe in the Dragon Lord Machine
than some giant tiger thing!   Too bad it's just about ready to take the
Dragoner Machine by force anyway, and attacks Kusuha, which somehow paralyzes
both Huckebeins in the process. Kusuha is already stunned from the attack, and
consequent attacks have her screaming out in pain, and eventually becoming
chillingly silent, while Viletta and Elzam plead their machines to move. Things
don't look very good at all..

...But of course everyone forgets the wildcard Bullet, who finally manages to
break out of his hypnosis. He attacks the Custos and breaks up the barrage of
attacks, proclaiming that he's sick and tired of being its lap dog, and that
his real place belongs with Kusuha and the rest of the partners he fought
alongside in the Balmar War. He then tells Kusuha to show it the real power of
the Tiger and Dragon machines, which they duly do as they combine.

At this point, you can finally use the Dragon-Tiger Lord and Tiger-Dragon Lord
once again, and you get to test it out on the poor Custos in the way. A good
Hot Blooded attack from the high movement range Tiger-Dragon Lord will take a
nice large chunk out of it; remember that it retreats below 7000 HP though, so
don't ping it TOO hard. Either of the finishers aided by Hot Blood should be
well enough to do over 7000 damage, and you can have Viletta cast Bless on them
for added cash as well. Enjoy the hiliarty after the battle. ^^;

After the mission, you receive 1 GS Light and 1 Organic Bit.

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Defeat Yazan within 6 turns, who retreats below 3000 HP.

Notes: Arad is sent with others on surveillance duty, and wouldn't you know it,
once he ends communications with the Albion, here comes Zeora, who still thinks
that some Lond Bel scum is using the Mk III; a quick shout from Arad fixes that
skewed notion, and Zeora is greatly relieved to see him still alive. Then
shocked when Arad refuses to go back to the Titans with her. Arad tries to tell
her about all the incidents like 30 bunch and that the Titans were wrong in
taking credit for the Balmar War and Aegis, but Zeora won't have any of it and
starts believing that Arad is under mind control (look who's talking -_-;).
Just as the war of words is starting to escalate into threats, that bad egg
Yazan pops up and targets the Mk III; Zeora starts getting freaked that Arad
would die (again), and tries to stop Yazan, but he tells her that this is war,
Arad is her enemy, thus Arad must die. Before he can pull the trigger though,
Retsuel and Viletta pop up and interrupt, with Retsuel using the Wild Bruger to
intercept and beat off Yazan. Retsuel then tells Arad to take the Mk III, while
he takes the Mk III to somewhere else to get it repaired; he complies, and
he and Viletta get ready to face down a whole host of Neo Jions, including the
still-resistant Zeora.

Although you look heavily outnumbered, there's actually very little the
majority of the enemies can do to hit you, as long as you throw a Concentrate
on both Arad and Viletta on every turn; Yazan always defends, so Zeora is the
only one who can get decent hit percentages on either of your units. I'd more
or less suggest completely ignoring Zeora for now, since all the units in her
squad has Support Defense, and your two single-unit squads aren't really enough
to pierce through it; instead send your two units forward, Viletta leading as
she has the slightly larger range, and take care of the Zakus who lack Support
Defense, while countering the squads who do posess them.

Once the calvary arrive on turn 3, move them downwards as fast as possible;
your main goal will be getting the AP, and you'll need to move full throttle
southwards all the way in order to land some hits on turn 6. Of course, make
sure to take care of Zeora while you're travelling south.

Although the AP looks relatively easily at 3000 HP, you have to factor in the
4-man squad, and the fact that Yazan and his flunkies always defend no matter
what. Even given that, any decent attack with Hot Blood should be able to
easily do the job; of course you could use Arad to do it for added drama.

After the mission, Zeora is put in confinement due to her hesistance in killing
her enemies, where she gets to angst a bit about what Arad told her before. You
also receive 1 GS Light and 1 Organic Bit.

Zondar 6 -- Ocosenia, Boazan Fighter Ship

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

On Turn 3.5:

Scarlet Comet -- Vegarion

AP Condition: Destroy all other enemies before destroying the EI-05. The
Vegarion is not included.

Notes: It's mere minutes to launch time, and it all goes to hell as Zondars
show up to interrupt. Guy and Volfogg are on hand to help, although they'll
get left behind; Ivis also launches with the solution, as the Alterion is
capable of entry into space, and can drag the other two with it. You can't let
any of the battleships be damaged, or worse, destroyed for three turns, though.

The situation isn't quite as bad as it looks, as most of the Zondars have
problems hitting all the units you can use. Pizza is the obvious exception, but
that's what seishin is for, is it not? ^^; Regardless, you still have to
protect the three battleships from being damaged during this period, so rush
your three squads forward to give the Zondars something else to think about.

Just before the battleships get ready to launch, the Vegarion tries to damage
their boosters; Ivis manages to interrupt Suray, and gets the Alterion damaged
in the process of fending her off. The battleships do eventually head for
space, and encourage Ivis not to lose her fight against Suray, and that they'll
see her in space again. Unfortunately, it's still not looking too good for
Ivis, with a weakened Alterion; then a Custos comes to save the day!   ...Well,
except Ivis won't let it; she then implores the Custos not to get involved, as
everyone believes in her, and she has promises to keep; she can't let anyone
but herself win this battle! Oddly enough, the Custos appears to understand
what she says, and disappears; at this point, you FINALLY get back to the
mission, and you have to survive one enemy turn of the Vegarion's and Pizza's
attacks.

On Turn 4, the Alterion is still in pretty bad shape; Ivis then tells Tsugumi
to prepare for manuever GRaMXs, which involves releasing the limiter Tsugumi
placed on the Alterion; she does so, and Ivis performs the -kickass- GRaMXs
manuever perfectly on Suray, who unforuntately casts Great Perseverance
immediately after. At this point, Ivis's statistics receive a massive boost,
and her Squad Leader Skill changes to Squad Movement Range +1 and Evade Rate
+10%; the Alterion also gets a mobility upgrade, the Bunshin ability and when
in CF mode, can perform the Manuever GRaMXs attack. Finally, Ivis gets a new
pilot potrait, where she actually smiles (nice smile, ain't it? ^^;) The only
tradeoff is that Ivis's crazy morale gains are lost and now become
significantly more normal, but I'd say that's a pretty good deal. ^^;

Anyway, back to the mission. You still have Pizza and Suray to dael with;
likely most, if not all of the rest of the Zondar enemies should be defeated by
then. I suggest rushing Ivis over to help Guy and Volfogg, since you can leave
the Vegarion alive and still gain the AP; you can have the high-mobility
Alterion show Pizza who's the true boss in air combat, then have Guy and
Volfogg give Suray a taste of the Sure Hit seishin. ^^; Once you finish the
mission, Guy and Volfogg hang on to the Alterion, and blast off to space after
the rest.

After the mission, you receive 1 GS Light and 1 Organic Bit.

Jupiter Empire 4 & 5 -- Belga Giros, Tenan Zon
Jupiter Empire 6 -- Dagi Giros, Zond Ger

When a Bug squad is destroyed, and the Rafflesia is alive:

Bug -- Bug(2)

AP Condition: Destroy the Samus Garu, which retreats below 10,000 HP.

Notes: It's back to space, and it's back to mobile suit smashing. The starting
squads are once again just appetizers for the main dish; even Gyunei says so
when the rest of your force arrives. ^^; Regardless, their starting forces are
still more numerous than yours, but I suggest moving the Ral Kairam forward
anyway; it's ALL attacks can make mincemeat of most of the enemy squads pretty
quickly. Save Harrison for support work, but make sure he's never in the
firing line, since enemy squads are rather quick to pick on the weak fry.

When your dudes arrive, have theem rush north and east as fast as possible.
Once you lower enemy squads to three or less, the rest of the force comes out,
and they're far more menacing AND annoying; the annoying bit coming from the
Bugs squads, as for every one squad you kill, another one will regenerate from
the Samus Garu. You then have to prevent ANY of the Bug Squads to proceed
across the lines that the game shows to you; the Ral Kairam will also move to
defend that line, and can't be moved after. Fortunately enough, Bug Squads can
be easily taken down with practically any ALL attack, and the number of Bug
Squads aren't infinite; there's still plenty of them though, and you might
find it easier to simply destroy the Rafflesia to stop the supply.

After that, you have relatively standard enemies to face, with the exception of
everyone's favourite traitor Zabine in the Crossbone Gundam X2 Kai, and the
ever-annoying Death Gale Squadron. Save up most of your Sure Hits and Hot
Bloods for those two. The Samus Garu is just your typical battleship, but being
LL size, can take hits relatively well. A Hot Blooded, supported attack should
do well over 10,000 damage to it, though.

After the stage, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Repair Kits and 2
Cartridges. If your Wing boys have a total level of 170, you will also receive
the Wing Gundam ver. Ka.

On turn 2.5:

Tetenis -- Elgolera[Bio Computer], Elbad(2)
Samus Gilly -- Samus Gilly[Chobham Armour], Elbad(2)
Jupiter Empire 7 & 8 -- Elbad(2)

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating the Elgolera.

Notes: Shellington, a cousin of Bella's, attempts to try and convince Bella to
return to the Jupiter empire, and embrace the power of newtypes. When Bella
flatly refuses, of course she then decides to take the Mother Vanguard by
force. -_-;

Because of this, although the Mother Vanguard is on the map, you won't be able
to control it; not that you really need it anyway. The enemy squads are spread
out both southeast and northeast; I -don't- suggest splitting up your forces,
instead move as one large whirlwind towards either force. This is due to the
enemy reinforcements appearing near the southeastern corner as well, and you
either want your whole force to be there, or none to be there at all, to
force them to meet you on your own terms.

On Turn 3, Judou and Tobia manage to convince Shellington that Newtypes aren't
the Gods she thinks they are(including a cool scene where Tobia dares her to
shoot him ^^;), and deploys in the new Crossbone Gundam X3. At this point, the
winning conditions also change to "save Tetenis", but all that really means is
to have Tobia attack the Elgolera once, to unmask who really is piloting it;
the old geezer Dogachi. The mobile armour is a bit of a combination of the
stability and firepower of battleships with the agility of mobile suits, but
doesn't really function that well as either, and with only 35k or so HP, is
taken down easily enough. Make sure you have Tobia deal the final blow though,
if you want the Full Armour parts for the ZZ Gundam.

After the mission, you receive 1 Propellant Tank, 1 Cartridge, 1 Repair Kit, 2
OVA's Croquettes, 1 Cecily's Bun and 1 Megarider. Additionally, after the
intermission, you get to choose whether you head towards the Moon or towards
Axis. Basically, the Moon route has more focus on Gaiking, while Axis has more
focus on ZZ. Choose whichever series you like best; the Moon route is better
for items, though.

Mazeran Kai -- Mazeran Kai

AP Condition: Clear the map within 9 turns.

Notes: This scenario is slightly different if you choose Ivis as your main
character; if you do so, she'd be an event character, and launches with the
Gundam Team, and Suray shows up on the opposite side as well.

Noin may look a little outmatched by herself against so many Jion suits, but as
long as you cast Concentrate on her every turn, she's nearly impossible to hit
for those poor Rick Doms and Gelgoogs. The slightly bigger problem is of course
Zechs, but even then, he's surprisingly poor aiming wise, and you generally get
a pretty good dodging percentage.

Noin doesn't have to be on her own for very long, as the Gundam team arrive
to help, and best of all, they all start at 130 morale, activiating Abandon
if you have it, and Heero only needs 10 more morale to activate the Zero
System. Heero and Zechs do have their usual face-off, in which Zechs will cast
Invincibility on himself; I don't suggest taking him on, and rather move him
perpetually northeast along with Camille and Kou, since none of them have
Accelerate, and most of the enemy forces will come from there.
	
The rest of your force arrive on turn 4 at the same place your Gundam team did,
albeit at normal morale. Have a few of your squads chase them, but leave 3 or
4 Squads with ALL attacks; on turn 5, more enemy reinforcements show up just a
little west of your own position, and ALL attacks can really rip them up, being
weak mobile suits with a lone, slightly-stronger battleship. The somewhat
bigger problem is to the northeast, with Yazan's squadron ever annoying in
having plenty of Support Defenses to spare, and 3 Musakas to destroy.
Fortunately, the 9-turn limit for the AP is exceedingly generous, especially
if you've already slapped on some upgrades.

On Turn 5:

Moon Condor -- Moon Condor

AP Condition: Destroy all Grodectors within 8 turns. All Grodectors retreat
below 8000 HP.

Notes: Unlike in the other route, Noin can't quite hold her own as well in
this scenario despite the dodging bonus from the terrain; her Taurus's weapons
just isn't enough to pierce the (relatively) tough-armoured Alliance enemies,
enhanced by the defensive terrain. Regardless, you should still cast
Concentrate every turn and do as much damage as you can with her Beam Cannon.

Although Sanshiro and Kazuya come to help on turn 2, they're rather badly
positioned, and their mechs' low movement range and lack of Accelerate means
that they're most likely even worse-placed than the reinforcements that arrive
on turn 4. For a cute little trick though, let the neutral Garunroll get hit
below 9000 or so HP, and Kazuya will rush over to defend it and casts Love on
himself, getting himself into a better position to attack. ^^;

Your dudes arrive at turn 4, but so do the 4 dark kings, who proceed to perform
the Death Cross formation on the Daikuu Maryuu, immobilizing it and lowering
it to critical HP. You can still deploy squads at least, but don't count too
much on the Daikuu Maryuu to provide support. On turn 5, the Kings release a
new enemy that critically damages Gaiking as well; he returns to the Daikuu
Maryuu though, and gets a new weapon; the Ultra-Weapon Head. Take out the
Moon Condor rather quick, though, as it can get within range of the vulnerable
Daikuu Maryuu rather quickly.

The AP simply involves rushing and forcing a path through to the kings; 8000
HP should be paltry to you by now, but you still have to take out at least one
of them per turn, so don't get too cocky. Defeating all of them will cause all
enemies to retreat, and force Desmond to send a kamikaze Black Monster onto
the Garunroll; and who should come to stop it, but Prince Hainel. Since I took
the Novis Noah route, the conversations might be a bit different if you saw
him in the Neo Jion route.

bunch of Alliance enemies to mash into the ground, and the AP simply means
that you should mash them fast so that they don't even get a chance to move.

AP Condition: Destroy all initial enemies in 4 turns.

Notes: If Ivis is your main character, Suray shows up among the enemy forces
as well.

The starting enemy forces are similar to the ones in Moon route 34, and should
be dealt with appropriately. Once again, the only real problems are Zechs and
his ALL Mega Cannon, and Yazan and his seemingly unlimited number of Support
Defenses. Besides them though, the number of enemies to face is less than
usual, and achieving the AP should be no problem whatsoever as long as you have
at least one person with Accelerate in every squad.

Even though the reinforcements are those scary Enhanced Human things, the only
really scary thing about them is their range; they can easily snipe your dudes,
especially the Germarks who have range 11 weapons. The obvious solution would
be to split up into three groups, one slightly stronger one going straight
up against the Germarks, and the other two taking the three Squads of Qubeleys.
Be wary of the Support Defenses though; that and the surprisingly high HP of
these mobile suits means that likely it'll take you a while to actually kill
all of them. Of course, if you're a wuss, you could always just hightail the
Ral Kairam to the eastern side of the map. ^^;

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies within 7 turns.

Notes: The Daikuu Maryuu is on the map, but immobile due to Sakon going
Psycho-n (haha i kill myself). You don't really need his help anyway; the map
is similar to the previous mission, and the enemies again occupy the eastern
side, and again they're nothing you haven't faced before. Rush your way down
and take them out, using your ALL attacks to make mincemeat of the hiding Red
Baloms, and employ your standard rush tactics you've probably refined to a T
by now.

No matter how much you rush though, it's quite unlikely that you finish all
the enemies on Turn 4, when the Daikuu Maryuu starts up again; Sakon then
pulls a fast one on the Kings, and Gaiking receives his Ultra Weapon Head
attack. The enemy turna fter, or after you destroy all the enemies, the rest
of the Kings show up in the northeastern corner, along with a couple of new
enemies; the Moon Condor and the Death Jaguar, but both aren't much stronger
than the average Super enemy. Saunter your way over and destroy once you're

AP Condition: Reduce Qubeley's HP below 45,000 within 6 turns.

Notes: It's the ZZ fest, with tons of ZZ mobile suits to bust up. The Qubeleys
will still pose the most non-face character problems, since their pilots have
Support Defense; the non-generic characters themselves aren't that hard either,
having barely better dodging and aiming stats than generics; they still do
pack more of a punch though, so don't underestimate them TOO much.

The main dish is of course Hamaan in her 90,000 HP Qubeley. She's just about as
troublesome as Char in his Sazabi; excellent dodging and aiming and painful
ALL funnel attacks. If you rushed your way through, you should've managed to
destroy everything except perhaps the Sataran by turn 5; you can then spend
turn 5 putting the finishing touches on the Sataran, and killing off Nii and
Lance with good ALL attacks, and save your last AP-condition turn for Sure Hit,
Hot Blooded finishers on Hamaan.

If you're on a repeat game, it may be possible to defeat Hamaan if you've spent
the majority of your PP on Melee stats for Zengar. Possible choices are fully
upgraded Zankantou Unjou no Tachi, Great Booster, Goldlion Hammer and any
combination of the three. According to some GameFAQs message board regulars,
most notably Dragoon T who told me about it over AIM, she drops a Cost Down,

The only thing to keep note of is to try not to spend any of Zengar's seishin
during the first part.

The main story events come after you clear the initial enemies, when Kukuru
shows up and Zengar once again hurries the rest of the force towards Fifth
Luna and takes Kukuru on himself. The only difference between this scenario
and the end of scenario 31 is that you don't have Retsuel to help, but she
doesn't have any irritating Giralas Suport Defending her either. It's simply a

easier, thanks to the after-effects of Kusuha's "health" drink. ^^;

The interesting bits happen after the battle, when the order goes out to chase
after the rest of Neo Jion, Bullet requests that he and Kusuha stay behind, as
the Dragon-Tiger machines aren't functioning very well. Banjou and the rest
accept this and leave first; Kusuha remarks that he knew Bullet didn't want to
cause the others trouble, then they start to sense "it"; it's the Custos, this
time the Shark one.

There's a LOT of story conversation about the history of the Dragon, Tiger and
the rest of the Super Machines in general, as well as the motivations and goals
of the Custos, but I didn't really understand it too well; it didn't help that
I was skipping through the dialogue at 3 AM. ^^; Anyway, the basics was that
the Dragon Lord Machine and Tiger Lord Machine betrayed it, and Kusuha and
Bullet believe in the machines, saying that there must be a reason why they
did so. You then get to take on the Shark Custos, but it retreats below a
certain amount of HP; you don't really get anything for killing it anyway, so
leave it be if you want.

Arad -- Wild Bruger

1 player turn after enemy reinforcements appear:

Arad & Zeora -- Wild Bruger, Wild Falcon

Starting Enemy Squads

Neo Jion 1 to 3 -- Gira Douga(3)

After initial enemies are defeated:

Zeora -- Wild Falcon
Yazan -- GP-02, Hambrabi(2), Gira Douga
Musaka 2 -- Musaka, Gira Douga(2)
Neo Jion 4 to 6 -- Gira Douga(4)
Neo Jion 7 & 8 -- Gelgoog M, Rick Dom II(3)
CB 1 & 2 -- Belga Giros(4)
CB 3 to 5 -- Belga Giros, Dagi Irus, Tenan Zon(2)

AP Condition: Defeat Yazan, who retreats below 7000 HP.

Notes: Zeora continues to ponder about her and Arad's role, and the teachings
of the School and Titans; she can't help but agree with some of his views,
yet... then Yazan's flunkies come to tell her that she's out of confinement,
and will be involved in the next mission, which she guardedly follows.

Initial forces are extremely weak, even moreso than usual. 1 Musaka and 3 Gira
Douga squads are an obvious distraction from what should be the main push, but
your dudes have no real choice but to bite at it anyway. If you have problems
with the initial enemies, how did you even get this far anyway? ^^;

Once the distractions are eliminated, here's Zeora; she mumbles her way through
an obviously pre-mediated stand-down offer, which most of your forces can't
decide how to take. Eventually she gets a grip on herself and tells them to
run; and here comes Yazan again, this time in the GP-02, and there's a nuke
loaded into it. Yazan berates Zeora for not playing her part well (if at all),
and casts her aside, leaving her stuck in the middle; she's still an enemy for
a turn, but if you defeat her during then, it's a game over anyway. Just hold
your ground for one turn.

Once you do, Arad still angsts about Zeora, then everyone else starts berating
HIM; if he wants to convince her to join him again, he'd better do it now! The
former enemies Four, Puru and Puru 2 also emphasize their support, as well as
those who still have supposed friends as their enemies like Kazuya. Now with
the backing of his comrades, he tries to tell Zeora that she should join him,
but she's too busy angsting to herself that she doesn't belong anywhere; she
betrayed the Titans, and has fought too much with your guys to be accepted
among them. But Quatre tells her that she's wrong, and the others chime in that
they've accepted several former enemies like Yuu into their battalion. Arad
finally breaks down her resistance by telling her she wants; no, NEEDS her back
as his trusted partner. She gratefully thanks Arad, and Retsuel and Viletta
then tell them that together, their machines can execute code TBS: Twin Bird
Strike.

Now on to the actual mission, this will be the second mission where you see
4-unit squads, but its the first time you've seen so damn MANY of them. Every
one of the squads except the Musaka is a 4-unit one, so Hot Blooded ALL attacks
are definitely the way to go, especially since most of them have Support
Defense. The slightly trickier prospect is Yazan, since letting him use the
Nuclear Bazooka is a losing condition, and by the time you blast your way to
him all the way to the northwest, he's probably reached the required morale to
unleash it. You have two options here; if you've been using Goshogun a lot,
then Remi will probably have Exhaust, and you can use this to spike Yazan's
morale to keep him from using the Nuclear Bazooka. If you don't have that
option, you have to make sure that you don't get within range of the Nuclear
Bazooka, which has a weapon range of 1-6, and a radius effect of 4 squares.
Stayat least 11 squares away on your turn, let him move forward, then on the
next turn quickly rush forward and destroy him and his flunkies before the
next enemy turn comes around.

Don't forget that fufilling the AP condition on this stage is also the method
to receive the GP-02 later, if you need more incentive. For added effect, you
can always use Twin Bird Strike to add a very satisfying finishing touch. After
the mission, Zeora tries to apologize, but everyone else cuts her off saying
that there's no need for explanations; most of them have gone through it
before, and Irui also pops in and starts calling Zeora Arad's... and he shuts
her up before she can go on. ^^; Later, Arad again confirms that he won't back
down on what he said before, and Zeora happily calls him a big idiot again.

After defeating the Vegarion:

Endora -- Endora
Cima -- Garbera Tetra (All enemies retreat)
Neo Jion 4 & 5 -- Gelgoog M(2)
Neo Jion 6 & 7 -- Rick Dom II

AP Condition: Defeat all initial enemies within 4 turns.

Notes: It's a pretty standard scenario against Neo Jion units; only Ivis being
an event character gives any indication of further developments, which becomes
even more protracted on turn 1.5, when Tsugumi detects a certain signal...
regardless, the focus is on the current Neo Jion and CB enemies, and they're
really nothing to worry about at all. Even the two Musakas can be taken out
quickly, and with 12 rampaging squads, it's entirely possible to fufill the AP
condition within 3 turns even though the enemies start relatively far away.

After you defeat all the initial enemies, the order goes out to chase the rest
of the Neo Jion forces; Ivis then says that the Alterion has problems and can't
chase effectively, and that they should go on ahead. Burning accepts this, but
Kinkedou sees right through her smokescreen and tells her not to lose(^^;).
The main force then leaves, and unsurprisingly, the Vegarion shows up right
after, with Suray still desperately clinging to her ideals. Ivis then strikes
a deal with her; if Suray can beat her, she'd surrender the Alterion, but if
she beats Suray, Suray has to listen to what she has to say (some terms. ^^;).
At this point, it becomes a straight-out fight between the sister machines;
effective use of Seishin should see you win easily, especially if Ivis is
levelled enough to learn Soul.

Once you beat Suray, Ivis is about to convince her not to fight her anymore,
but of course more Neo Jions show up to ruin the touching moment. Tsugumi then
decides to take matters in her own hands, and activates code Hyper-77; the
combination between Alterion and Vegarion, which forms into the Hyperion. You
can now start to lay massive waste to Neo Jion forces with your shiny new
robot, but before that, Viletta and Elz...er, RETSUEL show up to help as well.

Cima's the most dangerous, if by dangerous you mean "slightly worrying". A
Hot Blooded or Souled Manuever GRaMXs right down her throat finishes her
easily; just try to take out everything else before you do, since she brings
everything down with her. ^^;

Neo Jion 3 & 4 -- Gira Douga(2)
CB 4 & 5 -- Belga Giros(2)
CB 6 & 7 -- Elbad(2)

AP Condition: Reduce enemy squads to 5 or less by turn 7.

Notes: You may need to do some preperations before this mission starts if you
want access to tons of secrets. If Camille and Judouu aren't in the Z and ZZ
Gundam respectively, you probably want to put them back in their respective
signature mobile suits (unless you've already gained the Hi Mega Cannon Full
Power while taking the Axis route). Also, Amuro should go back into the RE-GZ;
don't worry, it's just for one stage. ^^; Additionally, you might not want to
put Kinekdou in any important squad, and keep him in the Crossbone X1.

For the first two turns, it's Heero and Zechs against some of the best
of what Neo Jion has to offer. It's not as hard as it sounds, though; both of
them are fairly adept at dodging, start at 130 morale, and you can switch
squad leaders regularly between them to use their EN-sucking attacks in
succession. The main problem will be Quess and Gyunei, who can dodge like the
dickens; don't bother even trying to hit them with either Wing pilot right now,
since you likely won't get any better than a 20% chance.

Your own dudes make their entrance on turn 3; the majority of them should join
the battle happening at the center-north of the map, although you might want
to send Judouu's and Amuro's squad towards the bottom-center, since Char and
friends show up around there. Meanwhile, Heero and Zechs should retreat a
little to join the main bulk of your force again.

When the enemy reinforcments do come, Kinkedou, if he's sortied and in the X1,
will rush along with Zabine to the south-eastern corner of the map to have
their requisite duel. Meanwhile, the rest of your force gets to deal with a
second helping of Char, as if the first time wasn't enough. He also brings
several more face characters in the fray with him.

For once, you may actually have trouble just surviving in this mission; the
sheer amount of enemies, especially those who can actually hit and hit hard,
are outstanding. Foremost is of course Char with his ALL Funnels, which can
easily decimate an entire squad in a couple of shots; Gyunei and Quess aren't
quite as destructive, but are still near-impossible to hit without the help
of the Sure Hit seishin; the Death Gale Squadron and Yazan's Squadron are as
irritating as ever thanks to their seemingly-inifinite amount of Support
Defenses, and Gato may not be quite on par with the newtypes on show, but he
still packs a big punch. Not to mention that you'll have to do a LOT of stuff
in this mission to unlock secrets, AND if you're aiming for the AP, you have
to rush and not be thrifty with the seishin. You need every drop of it to beat
up as many face characters as you can, almost all of whom drops nice items, and
still take the AP.

As for the events, the checklist is as follows; attack Yazan with Camille,
attack Char with Amuro in the RE-GZ MS mode, attack Char with Judou(if he
hasn't yet learned Hi Mega Cannon Full Power), reduce Zabine to below half HP
with Kinkedou, have either Kinkedou or (most likely) Bella attack Dorel, and
reduce the Sazabi's HP below 50,000. The first three are relatively
self-explanatory, although good luck in having Amuro's squad not be totally
decimated. An interesting thing about the fourth is that it's actually quite
possible to defeat Zabine entirely; a Beam Zanba, followed by a Soul-assisted
Beam Zanba (Continous Attack) should finish him off. The outcome will be the
same regardless; They both cross swords, and the X1 has its head sliced off,
and falls to the earth. You can actually delay this outcome by a scenario
though either by not sortying Kinkedou at all, or not letting him lower
Zabine's HP below half.

Reducing the Sazabi's HP below 50,000 will also actually mean sacrificing the
AP, as the mission will end right there with more than 5 squads remaining. If
you're well-prepared though, you can accomplish both at the same time by using
a MAP weapon that both reduces Char to below 50,000 HP and destroys an enemy
squadron; I suggest leaving one of the Gira Douga squadrons that come with Char
alive for that, and use Inspire if needed.

Besides all that, it's still your typical squad and battle strategies, except
tested to the very limit. Attack intelligently and keep all squads' HP high,
and you should come out with few, if any, casualties. Just make sure to get all
the good items and only leave some of the generic pilots for the 5-squad limit.

Notes: Just as you need a warm-up before the main event, you get a cool-down
as well. None of the enemies on show are particularly new or challenging,
although the Crossbone enemies have suddenly gained a surprising amount of HP.
Besides that, it's as standard a scenario as you can get. The reinforcements
show up at the eastern side; you should've taken out at least half of the
initial forces by turn 2, and can leisurely take out the rest, since most of
them rush you.

If you didn't lower Zabine's HP below 50% with Kinkedou in the last map, he
shows up here as well like a bad egg. This time, you HAVE to kill him, as its
a mission objective to do so; and this time, Kinkedou definitely gets his ass
kicked as the headless X1 falls to earth, with slightly more drama.

HP.

Notes: The Brains are literally useless in this scenario thanks to Jonathan's
attack, so it's your main character(s) against Jonathan at the start. No matter
which route you took though, it won't be easy, especially since you start at
normal morale. You should mostly just try to chip a bit off Jonathan on the
first turn, then concentrate on getting Morale by defeating other Gran Chers
on turn 2.

On turn 3, some of your guys arrive; you get to sortie two squads, so make sure
that they can either fly to take care of some of the Reclaimer squads
themselves, or have several good support spells, like Inspire, Friendship,
Hope, etc. You need to cast some of these on your main character to give him
or her an easier chance at defeating Jonathan.

For the AP, you'll need to weaken Jonathan regularly after you've gained enough
Morale (you should have enough for your stronger attacks by turn 3, turn 4
latest), lower him as low to 7000 as possible without accidentally pinging him
too hard, then finish with the hot blooded finisher of your mecha, perhaps
aided by Inspire.

When Gorgon attacks or is attacked:

Commander of the Dark -- Commander of the Dark[Nejiri Hachimaki]

AP Condition: Destroy all other enemies before destroying Ankoku Daishogun.

Notes: A pure Super Robot scenario, a rarity for awhile. Your force starts
in the eastern side, while the Mikenes and other assorted races take up most of
the southern edge. Don't forget at the start to sortie Boss and bring him near
his house for a Cost Down.

The enemies here are somewhat upgraded compared to their previous incarnations,
but shouldn't be too much of a problem regardless. Yurishiza is quite a bit
more of a problem; don't be afraid to spend SOME seishin on him to take him
out that much quicker, since he takes damage rather well, especially if he
decides to move onto defensive terrain.

The real meat of the scenario comes when Gorgon inevitably snipes one of your
lingering squads, and the Commander of the Dark comes out to meet your forces.
Unlike 35+ scenarios ago, he won't run away this time, and you'll need effort
from every one of your squads to whittle away his 120,000 HP. Be wary of his
ALL attack, and his rather strong Dark Saber; now's a good time to practice
having your squad members use defensive seishin to survive, and to praise the
glory of the Brains and their Chakra Shields.

The AP is as easy as most of its type, except perhaps for Gorgon who tends to
hide behind the Commander of the Dark like the little wuss he is. Speed around
the great general and take him out before focusing your energies on the first
6 digit HP enemy you've come across.

Once you do, yet another familiar face pops up; it's Dr. Hell, back from the
dead and now known as Jigoku Daigensui, or General Hell. Your dudes are pumped
up and ready to kick his ass, until he reveals his trump cards; the Mazinkaiser
and Shin Getter, piloted by their respective professors. This forces your group
to retreat and give up the Photon Power Laboratory, much to their (especially
Kouji's and Ryouma's) chagrin.

AP Condition: Destroy all other enemies before defeating General Hell.

Notes: The start of this mission is almost the exact same as the previous,
except Gorgon's not around, and instead of the Superhuman General, we get the
Bird General to play around with. Your guys start at the center of the map,
near the Big Falcon, while the initial forces show up at the southwest. Go
ahead and meet them there, since you don't have to prtect the Big Falcon from
enemy attacks.

The trouble starts when Mazinkaiser and Shin Getter appear again on turn 3,
with the professors still inside. By then, most of your force should be at the
southwestern area, and they'll make their way towards you; go ahead and wait
for them there, taking out the remainder of the Bird General's army, and of
course the Badara himself, while you're at it.

Both the Kaiser and Shin Getter provide a unique problem; you have to somehow
disable them without destroying them, and killing the professors within in the
process. This is done by destroying their squad members (most probably with
strong ALL attacks), then reducing them to below 1,000 HP. Mercy is REALLY
useful here, but even if none of your squad leaders have it, careful planning
with Squad Attacks and the quick-save+reload should save the day. You can also
do them seperately, despite their HP regeneration; you can happily take
Mazinkaiser down, let it regenerate back to full HP, then disable Shin Getter
and still fufill the winning conditions, ironically.

Once you disable both the God-machines, Kouji and the Getter Team hurry over
to save their respective professors, but get attacked back; General Hell then
shows up, and cackles at how he purposely made the machines stop temporarily
to give them false hope that their plan might work. The order then goes out
for your force to head back to the Big Falcon, then the little bitch Miwa
orders them to destroy the machines, which eventually Tetsuya complies to,
although vehemently denying that Miwa's opinion is worth anything to him; he's
doing it because it's what the professors request.

Before he can even land a blow though, the Custos make an appearance(haven't
seen THEM in awhile), which causes the God-machines to go berserk and shake off
the control that General Hell has over them. The Mazinger and Getter Team then
manage to save the professors, and send them back to the Big Falcon. At this
point, the Custos also become NPCs; they have tons of HP, but are actually a
little weak power-wise. Regardless, it then becomes a race to make sure that
the Custos don't steal any of your cash or experience. ^^;

General Hell starts all the way at the southern edge of the map, so the AP is
easily fufilled. He's not that hard either; the Demonica only has a "paltry"
60k HP. Take him down, then bask in the power of the Final Dynamic Special in
action.

After the map, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Repair Kits, 2 Cartridges and
1 OVA's Croquette. You also receive Shin Getter and Mazinkaiser, and Mazinger Z
gets a new weapon.

After lowering Gorgon below half HP, and choosing the first option:

Missile 1 to 8 -- Missile

AP Condition: Defeat Hardias within 6 turns.

Notes: I'm assuming you followed the requirements for getting X1's Screw Whip;
this mission may be different if you didn't follow it.

Before the scenario starts, Bella angsts about Kinkedou's continued MIA status.
Tobia, Mikoto and Bernadette eventually manage to cheer her up, and during a
meeting on the attack plan on the Mikene base, you get an option whether to
have the Mother Vanguard join the attack(first option) or defend from outside
(second option). The second one ends earlier and is slightly easier, but the
first one has more drama. ^^;

Whichever you choose, the mission then starts. If you chose the second option,
the Daikuu Maryuu and 12 squads will attack from the north; if you chose the
first option, then it will be the Daikuu Maryuu north with 6 squads, and the
Mother Vanguard south with another 6 squads, performing a pincer attack.
Whichever way you choose, the initial enemies are the same; occupying almost
the entire western area, and again nothing you've not expected. The three
Haniwa generals are still as useless as ever, although Hardias is a little
tougher; he has the standard 60k+ HP, AND Afterimage, which fortunately doesn't
seem to activate nearly as often as it used to. Go ahead and spent some Sure
Hit seishin on him to ensure that you don't waste that Hot Blooded Great
Booster.

Once you kill him, Gorgon appears again with a piddling force; if you chose the
first option, I suggest letting the Mother Vanguard force handle him. The big
trouble happens when you take him below half HP. If you chose the first option,
several missiles are released and are about to blow the whole base apart;
Kinkedou then makes the requisite SRW "back from the dead" appearance with his
X1 and a spiffy face mask, and takes out one of the missiles. You still have 8
more missiles and a full-HP Gorgon to deal with though, so have the Mother
Vanguard-led forces take Gorgon on, while the Daikuu Maryuu-led forces,
assisted by Kinkedou, deal with the missiles. If you chose the second option,
then you just have to kill off Gorgon after you take him down to below half
HP, and the Mother Vanguard and Kinkedou will appear shortly after.

An interesting tip as well: if you manage to kill Gorgon the first time by
killing him without letting him go below half HP (i.e deal 27,000+ damage with
one battle), the rest of the events play out, and Gorgon resurrects again, but
you still get a Zolmanium Alloy for defeating him the first time; thus, by
killing him twice, you can get 2 Zolmanium Alloys out of him, which your Supers
will be very happy about. ^^;

After the stage, Kinkedou will bring gifts from the Yugo with him; if you
fufilled the conditions for them, that is. The checklist includes the Full
Armour parts for the ZZ Gundam, the Hi Nu Gundam, the HWS parts for the Nu
Gundam, and the GP-02 Physalis. You also receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2

AP Condition: Defeat Kuttnel and Jonathan.

Notes: Orphan is the main setting this time, as it prepares to head into space.
You get the typical BP enemies to deal with from the start, except Jonathan
in his slightly stronger Baronzu; but in the end, it IS still a Gran Cher, so
it's not something to be horribly worried about; simply slam on a few Sure Hits
and Hot Bloods to emphasize your point to Jonathan.

The Dokuga comes on Turn 3, at which point the winning condition becomes to get
the Good Thunder Team and Yuu and Hime onto the two glowing squares within 5
turns. You will want to expand every one of those 5 turns; not because the
enemies are particularly difficult, but because Kelknuckle here is a gold mine.
Everyone of the Dokuga except Kelknuckle rushes you, and are fairly easily
beaten off; Kelknuckle stays where he is though, and defends almost all the
time, only attacking you during the enemy phase. However, although he takes
some time to be defeated, he always "revives" immediately after, allowing you
to kill him again...and again...and again, until you're forced by the time
limit to complete the mission. You can get about 14,000 credits with Lucky for
each Kelknuckle kill.

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies.

Notes: A very interesting introduction to the stage, as Irui has a dream about
her "mother", and when the mission starts, you get to hear Nina scream in
horror as Kou almost says the forbidden "G" word. ^^:

Despite the hilarious introduction, the mission itself is pretty standard.
There admittedly is a large number of enemies, but they're still nothing you
haven't faced before, and the Dokuga ships still have only puny 15-20k HP.

The Zondar reinforcements show up at the southeast, and the Meganoids at the
northwest; fortunately, all of them will be attracted to the Good Thunder like
flies to honey. The only really noticable enemies are Henmel and his annoying
Damage -10% Squad Leader ability, and Koros in her high HP Nibelgen, although
she gives you a very nice GS Light. At the end, Irui disappears from the ship;
some think to search for her mother...

After the mission is finished, you receive 1 Ova's Croquette and 1 Kenta's
Pokecon. Also, after you finish the intermission, you have to make a choice
whether to combat the Zondar in Japan(first option) or attack the Mikenes
(second option). The first option is generally easier, but the second option
allows you to use Pizza for one scenario, and whichever choice you make, you
still have to combat the other one later in the game. Pick your poison.

AP Condition: Clear the map within 7 turns.

Notes: Once again, your forces are split into two; 1 battleship and GGG Team 1
with 6 squads at the south, and GGG Team 2 with 6 more squads at the north.
Your north team will probably be a little overwhelmed; the majority of the
enemies are closer to the north team, and likely Volfogg and Choryuujin aren't
too levelled, so deploy your strongest squads towards the north.

Despite the large numbers, including a few EIs to combat, there's still nothing
you haven't really seen before...until the Zondarians show up, that is. They're
considerably tougher than your grunt units; all around 50k HP, while Pizza can
dodge surprisingly well, Penchinon takes damage like a tank thanks to his -20%
Damage ability, and you have to break through 3 Support Defenses to get to the
husband-and-wife team. If you're a romantic, be sure to take them down with
their respective GGG rivals.

In the middle of all this chaos, don't forget that one of your mission
objectives is to have a unit land on one of the glowing squares. I suggest
having a battleship do it, since they'll likely be some of your least important
members. Get someone there, and finish off the 4 Great Kings, to finish the
scenario.

Notes: Almost a WYSIWYG mission, except for those annoying missiles that pop
out every turn. They're exactly the same as the ones in Mission 28 Jion route,
and you should just let them explode into your battleships for trivial damage.

Besides them, your force starts in the northwest, and the Mikene forces occupy
pretty much the entire southeastern half. They're still standard enemies
though; even the Haniwa goons aren't much cop, still in their crappy ol'
Yamada No Orochis. If you want a quick and easy mission, rush forward and take
out the missile batteries first, then from the center, take out all those
around you. A dangerous approach, but fun all the same, and almost ensures the

When any squad gets near EI-01:

EI-15 -- EI-15
EI-20 -- EI-20
9x (EI-02 -- EI-02)

AP Condition: Defeat all enemies, including EI-01, within 7 turns.

Notes: Unsurprisingly, this is mostly a story-based battle. It appears to be 15
squads of death against a puny EI-01. Surely you shouldn't believe that's all
that happens, and sure enough, when you get close to EI-01, it fires off some
anti-G Stone wave that reduces everyone's morale to 80 (except for the GGG
guys, whose morale goes to 50), and removes some of their EN and HP. At least
the EI-01 then nicely provides you some other EIs to deal with while you kill
time waiting for the eventual power-up.

On Turn 3, the operators at the G Island City will release the Shell X, at
Guy's request. You then have to wait one turn for it to land, then another turn
while the two GGG squads charge up inside it. While you do, take on the grunt
EIs; just remember that 80 morale means that you most likely won't receive the
benefits of any barriers, so Reals rule the day again. I can't recall if EI-01
actively attacks you in this scenario, but if he does, ALWAYS defend and heal
immediately after, even if you're forced to change your Squad Leader to a
healer unit to do so.

Once turn 5 comes around, you should have dealt with almost all, if not all of
the EIs save EI-01. At that point, you get to see a wicked GGG scene, and you
get some service in the terms of 36,000 HP damage on EI-01 in one attack from
Guy's Drill Knee. Don't think you can do that insane amount of damage all the
time though, but the GGG dudes do start with 300 morale at least, making their
attacks more damaging than usual. The Shell X also refills everyone's HP and
EN, so it's the "simple" matter of ganging up on EI-01 to reduce the 140,000 or
so HP it has left, and enjoying the heartwarming scenes after. The AP is also
easy, since you have three turns to kill of EI-01, which can be easily done in
1.

Don't forget that you have the chance to get the Stealth Gao II parts here, if
you have GaoGaiGar go below 500 HP and have Guy's terrain ratings all be S at
any time in this scenario. It's probably easiest to do before the Shell X
sequence, since then Guy won't have the Protect Shade to help him; at that
point though, Guy will probably die in any hit from Pasta unless you really
upgraded his Armour and HP fully. If you didn't, you'll probably have to use
one of the other EI's attacks to ping GaoGaiGar's HP to below 500.

After the mission, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Repair Kits, 2 Cartridges
and 1 Super Repair Kit.

AP Condition: Clear the map within 6 turns.

Notes: Yep, it's a scenario so big, it needs two parts to cover it. Fortunately
though, the first part is rather simple; it's a firefight between your groups
against the usual SR enemies, which are surprisingly weak in both upgrades and
numbers. You might actually find it hard to activate your SR's finishing moves
because there are so few enemies to kill, which may make General Hell slightly
harder. Even so, simple rushing and mashing will rule the day.

Once you take out General Hell, you get to see a few new enemies appear in the
same crevice as General Hell, who try to delay you as the Mikenes launch
attacks on Japan. They actually have pretty good HP for grunts, but that just
means that they take two whole attacks instead of one to kill. ^^; Once you're
done with them, hopefully within the AP limit, it's time to rush your
battle-weary force over to Japan.

Reinforcement Enemy Squads

After all enemies are defeated:

Dark Emperor -- Dark Emperor[Nejiri Hachimaki]

AP Condition: None

Notes: Your dudes rush over to Japan, to find it under heavy bombardment from
Mikene forces. It's up to your dudes to repel them, but it's not going to be
easy; not just from the pure wealth of enemies around, but from the battle
damage of your squads; all your units have 70% HP, 70% EN and worst of all, 50%
SP. This ensures that you really can't just rashly use seishin now; you have
to choose the right time to use the right seishin.

I suggest sending 4 or 5 Squads to the west, to deal with Hardias' group; you
don't need to many squads there, since the Custos comes to help you one turn
later, and those squads should focus most of their SP on taking down Hardias
and his goons, and use whatever remains on Badara's forces if they can.

The rest of your force should head south and deal with Yurishiza, Argos and
General Hell. Yurishiza is in defensive terrain, and can be extremely hard to
damage, but be thrifty with your seishin. Both Argos and Hell are in Demonicas,
and are the only Mikenes with ALL attacks; this may actually work to your
advantage, since the Chakra Shields and G-Territories then saves you from using
too much recovery or defense seishin. Regardless, they are still your main
threats; use whatever you have left to kill them once and for all, prioritizing
using your seishin for good damage rather than ammo or EN. Most likely, Badara
and his flunkies will approach this group over the western one as well; he can
be easily beaten without seishin, since he doesn't have particularly tough
armour like Yurishiza, or Bunshin like Hardias.

When you finally finish off the Mikene forces, the Dark Emperor makes his
entrance and uses his supernatural powers to show off how elite he is. The
Custos attempt to take him on, but your guys tell them to back off, since its
their fight; they comply, and give you a nice present by refilling all your SP.
You WILL need this refill; the Dark Emperor has 200k HP, one of those rare ALL
attacks that are powerful AND can be used point-blank, extremely tough armour
combined with the Damage -20% ability, and to top it off, he has Bunshin.
About his only weak point is that he can actually eat up his EN pretty quickly,
as he "only" has around 400 and his main ALL attack takes up 30+ EN. There
really isn't any cure-all advice I can give for defeating him; you need to pull
out all the strategies you've learnt for killing bosses from previous games,
and multiply by 2. Use all support seishin to their fullest(including Exhaust,
which REALLY helps to spike Bunshin), and throw last bit you have at the Dark
Emperor to finish off the Mikene Empire for good.

Don't forget that you can earn the Stealth Gao II parts here by reducing
GaoGaiGar to below 500 HP and having all of Guy's Terrain Ratings be S. It's
far easier to do it in this route than in the previous route, since now there
are plenty of Mikene generals who can get a decent hit rate on Guy without
completely demolishing him.

After the mission, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Repair Kits, 2 Cartridges
and 1 Super Repair Kit.

After reducing Dokuga enemy squads to 6 or less, or after 6 turns:

AP Condition: Reduce Dokuga enemy squads to 6 or less within 6 turns.

Notes: More Good Thunder antics, as you face the Dokuga Generals for the last
time. They all have considerably upgraded battleships now; 50k HP instead of
the old 15-20k. Besides that though, they're still the same old as ever, with
Kelknuckle's being the most dangerous, and all the other generic Dokugas not
really being much of a threat. Simply send 4 or 5 squads across the ocean to
meet Kelknuckle's group, and the rest head south to take on Kuttnel and Bundol.
Remember that after the number of Dokuga squads is brought to 6 or below, the
rest will retreat, so leave a few Impactor squads alive while you deal with the
higher-money monsters.

On Turn 2, another Custos appears and, worryingly enough, starts attacking the
Good Thunder. It doesn't really do that much damage, but can be annoying all
the same. You can kill it if you want to; a supported fully-upgraded attack
should do the job. If you do so though, then the scenario shifts immediately
into the next sequence and robs you of the AP, and you don't really get
anything special for destroying the Custos.

After the story events, you then get 15 Neutron Missiles to deal with... well,
actually 14, since the Custos will destroy one for you. Note that they always
defend, so you may have to put in some extra effort to destroy them totally.
The baka generals will show up to help, but they're really not that helpful,
since they start all the way to the east, and don't have any good P attacks.
The group you sent to combat Kelknuckle should be able to take the eastern
missiles by themselves, while the rest handles the other missiles.

Cima Squadron -- Gerbera Tetra, Gelgoog M(2)
Hamaan Squadron 1 to 6 -- Mass Produced Qubeley(3)

AP Condition: Reduce initial enemy squads to 6 or below by turn 4.

Notes: The title of this scenario is "Decision", and it's rather aptly named,
as we'll see soon enough. First though, it's those ever-annoying SR enemies
ready for another beating. There's a lot of battleships and high-HP enemies,
but again, nothing you've not faced before. The regulations for the previous
mission in terms of the AP apply; leave a few Boazan Fighter Ship squads or
Red Balom squads around and hit the targets that reap you higher rewards.

When you fufill the conditions, or on turn 4, Hamaan and her Neo Jion army
appears. At this point, she gives you an option to accept a ceasefire with her;
choose the first option to accept, and the second to decline. Accepting and
declining not only has obvious immediate impact, since it then decides whether
the mission ends there or whether you fight Hamaan's group, but it also shapes
the next 6 scenarios; if you don't accept, Char will drop Axis on earth, while
if you do, he tries to drop Orphan instead.

If you choose not to accept, then you'll have to fight Hamaan there and then,
which isn't really as hard as it sounds. You know a set of Real Robot enemies
are pretty pathetic if among them, the battleship has the best evade rate. ^^;
Don't underestimate the Sataran, since Hamaan can actually make it dodge quite
well; spend most of your seishin on her.

After the mission, you receive 2 Propellant Tanks, 2 Cartridges, 2 Repair Kits
and 1 Super Repair Kit. If you chose to make peace with Hamaan, then you also
receive 1 Doben Wolf, as well as receiving 2 Mass Produced Qubeley Mk IIs and
Dorel Rona with his Belga Giros if you met their respective conditions. From
now on, I will refer to the route where you make peace with Hamaan as the 'A'
route, while not making peace with Hamaan is the 'B' route. Additionally, if
you chose the Tokyo path earlier at mission 45, then follow the '1' routes,
else if you chose the Mikene path, then follow the '2' routes.

AP Condition: Destroy the Attack Warship Sandar within 7 turns.

Notes: Before the map begins, you save Barubas's skin from the fury of Small
Balm's Photon Cannon. Your dudes eventually decide to help him to free Small
Balm of the tyrannical Orban, and doing this requires a massive energy output
from Daimos and the Chodenji brothers to disable to protective shield around
Small Balm. This means that although they ARE on the map from the start,
they're completely unusable; even seishin are disabled for them. The rest of
your 13 squads and 2 battleships should then focus on the enemy straight ahead,
but beware the Photon Cannon; it fires at the start of every enemy turn, and
hits 3 squads, reducing all members of that squad to 50% HP. This means that
you have to heal the squads affected on every turn so that the roll of the dice
doesn't get the same squad twice in a row and completely demolish it. ^^; Of
course, if one of the affected squads has a healer in it, it'll be alright to
leave it alone, albeit still a little risky, since if it does get hit a second
time, all the members will have 10% HP thanks to the 10% recovery per turn
of the recovery units.

Besides the Photon Cannon, it's an otherwise standard scenario. Note that the
Squad Leader Daris have 12,000 HP and not 6,500 though, and that the Garunrolls
prioritize rushing the two disabled squads rather than attacking your dudes.
The Chodenji robots and the Daimohick squadron will finish charging on turn 4;
you don't HAVE to destroy all enemies before that, but it'll certainly help if
you can. Regardless, most of your force should emphasize moving towards the
southwest corner of the map after dealing with the initial enemies.

After the story events, you can finally use the Combattler, Voltes and Daimos
again, and they start at 150 morale. Also appearing are Richter and Hainel, who
are actually pretty good fighters if you're playing a no-upgrade game. On the
other hand, the reinforcements that pop up are among the strongest you've seen
so far; the Skullrooks are by far the easiest, with the Cobrads a huge problem
before, but less of one now, and the 90k HP God Armons taking a LONG time to
whittle down. If you're playing a no upgrade game and going for the AP, it'll
probably be a good move to just ignore the Armons and maybe the Cobrads, and
strike at the 120k HP Sandar immediately, although the Armons drop some fairly
good items. The Sandar itself actually isn't much of a problem; it's piloted by
the inept Belgan, who makes killing it far easier than it should be.
Regardless, it still has mounds of HP, so hit it with your best shots.

Notes: Very similar mission 46 Mikene route, with the only thing different
being the layout of the enemies, and the slightly larger amount of enemies.
None of them are still much cop; the only face characters are the ever-crappy
Haniwa generals, and the AP can be done easily by simply splitting up your
forces into two groups to deal with the enemies left, right and eventually
center. Usually the left group can will take on both the center and left
enemies, so you might want to make that force a little stronger.

The missile batteries are also the same as they were in stage 28 Neo Jion and
stage 46 Mikene; let them suicide onto your battleships for puny damage and
morale gains.

After reducing the Budagiln to below 50% HP:

Don Saucer -- Don Saucer

AP Condition: Defeat Don Saucer within 6 turns.

Notes: A space mission against Meganoids, and Meganoid battles usually mean
Megaborgs. Only one shows up though, and it's Koros, in the Budagiln. It's
about the only dangerous enemy you can see, with Koros's Squad Leader Skill
meaning that you probably should take her out FAST when she gets within range.
You should generally be moving fast anyway; you start relatively far away from
the bulk of the enemy forces, with your guys in the southeast corner and
all the enemies in the center, and there still is a fair number of them to
defeat within the AP condition turn limit.

Don Saucer makes his ever-retarded appearance after his poor li'l Koros gets
beat up too badly; surprisingly enough, he actually has less HP than the
Budagiln, but his Damage -20% ability easily makes up for that. If you're
really pressed for time, throw everything at him and forsake the rest of the
money-rich enemies, but if you have the time, you know what to do. As a warning
though, Don Saucer casts Love on himself when you defeat Koros, so make sure
you have a squad prepared to take the hit.

Notes: The 4 Great Kings start the battle by pulling the Death Cross formation
on Small Balm; Richter and Hainel then mount a kamikaze attack on two of them,
breaking up the formation(unless you followed the steps to unlock them, of
course. ^^;). Your force then shows up, pissed and ready to take out their
anger on anything in their way.

Unfortunately for them, what's in their way is pretty piddling. There's the
usual pathetic Zera enemies all huddled up in the northeast corner; the 4 Great
Kings have pulled a Dokuga though, and suddenly have had their ships upgraded
to 50k HP and have stronger weapons as well. They're still not a particularly
big problem; the person who fufills that description is Darius, who appears at
the northwest corner, along with a few flunkies, once you reduce enemy squads
to 5 or less.

Darius is quite the monster; 200k HP, tough Armour and the -20% damage Squad
Leader skill, not to mention a rather high Sword Cut level which can make some
weapons useless. Unless you've been upgrading madly, you'll need 2 turns
to take him down, so make sure to budget that amount of time if you're aiming
for the AP. Try to take down the Grodectors if you have time as well; they
produce some very nice items.

When Don Saucer and General Hell are defeated:

Dark Emperor -- Dark Emperor[Brave Hero's Crest]
Argos -- Invincible Fortress Demonica, Dolrag(2)
3x (Mikross -- Almighty Fortress Mikross, Dolrag(2))

AP Condition: Clear the map within 10 turns.

Notes: It's the last battle with the Mikene in this route, and you've got the
tag team of them and the Meganoids to deal with. You'll also see some new 20k
HP grunt enemies from the other route back in scenario 46, but they're still
not much cop. Just rush your dudes from the southeast of the map to the center,
and open fire. Lots and lots of fire.

As in the previous scenario of the other route, Don Saucer appears once Koros
goes below 50% HP, and as in the previous scenario, this is fortunately the
weak Don Saucer(as opposed to the ARGH STRONG one you'll see later), with a
"piddling" 70k HP. Don't forget that, similar to the other route, he still has
the Damage -20% ability and casts Love when Koros dies; on the other hand, if
you kill him first, all the Meganoids immediately self-destruct. Your choice
whether to forsake the money for ease. ^^;

The rest of the Mikene Generals are nothing new; Badara is still the easiest of
them with nothing really special, Hardias may still require Sure Hit to ease
stress, and Yurishiza isn't nearly as tough without defensive terrain to back
him up. You've even fought the Demonica before already, and with 60k HP, can be
dealt with relatively easily, even though he still packs quite a punch. You
should be prioritizing saving EN and HP over seishin, so cast as many Hot
Bloods, Sure Hits, Flashes and Invinciblities as your SP allows.

Once you've defeated both of the honchos, the Dark Emperor shows up; the events
are almost exactly the same as the Mikene route from stage 47, except that
instead of appearing by himself, the Dark Emperor brings Argos and a few more
grunts with him. This DOES have the side effect of him getting free hits on you
as you deal with the flunkies, but as long as you defend his attacks, it
shouldn't be TOO harsh. You deal with the Dark Emperor the same way as you
should deal with him in all other routes; Lots and lots of your refilled
seishin, Exhaust or Sure Hit, Hot Blood, Spirit, Confusion, defensive Seishin,
the works. You'll again probably take two turns to finish him off barring use
of Awaken, so AP-goers should budget for that.

When you defeat Don Saucer and the 4 Great Kings:

EI-01 -- EI-01[Brave Hero's Crest]
2x (EI-02 -- EI-02)
2x (EI-15 -- EI-15)

AP Condition: Fufill the winning conditions (defeat the 4 Great Kings and Don
Saucer) within 5 turns.

Notes: If you've seen the notes for the Tokyo route back at scenario 46, you
know what to expect; this is basically a combination of both scenario 46 and
scenario 47 of that route, with the wildcard addition of Don Saucer, who's
far harder than in the previous scenario; basically the same stats, except
for 100k more HP, nullifying his only weak point previously. The 4 Zondarians
are still around as well, and are about what you expect from boss-class units;
at least Pironess and Primida are seperate this time, and thus far easier to
kill.

If you're going for the AP, this may actually be a fairly difficult scenario.
You should first split into two groups and take out the grunt enemies ASAP;
within two turns is best, three is a little shaky. You should spend your third
turn taking out the few grunts that remain, and then start dismantling the
Zondarians one-by-one. By the 4th turn, you should have finished off the
Zondarians, and placed yourself ready to strike at Don; on the final turn,
throw absolutely everything you have at him, and hope it's enough. Throw in
some Exhaust if you wish, too. Don't forget that if you want to use Pizza
later, to take him out using Guy, and that whichever of the husband-and-wife
team you kill first, the other will cast Love.

After you take out the Kings and Don, EI-01 appears, and the Shell X sequence
from the previous scenario starts. You only have 4 other EIs to play around
with, but at least you don't have to wait as long either. When the Shell X does
activate, it once again refills all your HP and EN, and it MIGHT refill your
seishin as well (don't really remember ^^;). At this point, Pizza shows up to
help if you fufilled the conditions for him. If you've been thrifty with your
seishin before, now's the time to use it all up on Pasta and finish the
Zondarians once and for all.

After defeating 4 Divinidads:

Dogachi -- Divinidad[G Territory]

AP Condition: Defeat the Dogachi 1 to 7 Squads before defeating Dogachi.

Notes: Now that you're finishing off series by series, it's time to take down
the Jupiter Empire. Hamaan is on hand to help you out, albeit as a neutral; she
doesn't really do THAT well damage wise, but you can count on her not to be a
liability, having 90k HP and all. Dorel also shows up in this mission as an
enemy if you didn't recruit him.

The enemies are all the standard Crossbone enemies, including the Death Gale
Squadron who aren't really as dangerous as they used to be, the ever-insane
Zabine, and Karas in his Nautilius. Surprisingly, of the initial enemies, Karas
is probably the most troublesome; he has evade on par with most of the other
newtypes on the stage, yet has 70k HP. You'll likely be spending quite a few
of your seishin on him; to make up for it, try not to use seishin on the two
battleships, which are fairly easily defeated without them; it just takes
awhile. ^^;

WHen you take the Jupiteris 9 down, Dogachi appears; or more accurately, 7
Dogachis appear. They're all boss-class units, with the HP of a high-class
grunt, thankfully. A couple of good attacks should take one down; if you want
to be careful, try to take 3 of them down, then reduce the others to low HP
before killing them.

Once you take the 4th one down, the real Dogachi, all 140k HP of him, appears.
The AP condition is shown to you at this point; given that there's a time limit
of three turns, aren't you glad you weakened the other Divinidads now? ^^; The
real Dogachi is similar to the others, except just tons more HP. Throw whatever
you have left at him (which should still be a lot, really) and finish the
mission.

After both Jonathan and Quincy are defeated:

AP Condition: Clear the map within 8 turns.

Notes: It's the final battle with the Reclaimers, and they're out in full
force; a very nice 45 normal Gran Chers for you to clear out. They're
relatively hard to hit, but you can generally go ahead and use your seishin
to aid you if you want; this scenario isn't very long, thankfully.

Once Quincy is defeated or attacks Yuu, with the latter being far more likely
given that she makes a beeline for him from the start, the king and queen
(*cough*) of Orphan appear in their respective Baronzus. Jonathan's Baronzu
is still pretty wimpy at around 25k HP, while Quincy's is tougher at 50k, but
both are in the end Gran Chers with more HP. If you can, try and snipe them
from far so that they can't use their ALL attacks.

Once you defeat both of them, you get to take down ANOTHER Baronzu, this time
piloted by Baron. "His" Baronzu is higher in stats than the other two
(especially HP, damn him), but as a trade-off, his stats are actually lower
than his subordinates, and should be just as easily dealt with, only taking
slightly longer to do so.

Musaka 1 to 5 -- Musaka, Gira Douga(2)
Neo Jion 1 to 6 -- Gira Douga(2)

AP Condition: Fufill the winning conditions.

Notes: The first part is practically the exact same as the last one I covered
in the other route, except with one less Reclaimer squad. Everything else said
there applies, except that you should be far, far more thrifty with your
seishin; try not to use ANY Hot Bloods at all to take all the Gran Chers and
Baronzus out. This is to prepare for the Neo Jion reinforcements who appear to
the southeast, and boy do you have a fight on your hands.

Besides Char himself, the obvious threats are Gyunei and Quess as usual; this
time they're in Alpha Aziels, which despite their L size, can still dodge
amazingly well, and have ALL Funnels, which are murder on your squad members,
and can be used point-blank. Fortunately, they don't have TOO much HP; take
them out as fast as you can, and use defensive seishin if you need it. Next on
the troublesome list is Kelly, mostly because of the Val Varo's map weapon,
if you're not prepared for it. Gato is like the Alpha Aziels except far weaker
point blank, while the other face characters are cake comparatively.

Once you attack any of the Musakas, it's revealed that they're carrying a
nuclear payload and heading for the Orphan; you have to destroy them before
they get there, and the winning conditions become destroying all Musakas, or
defeating the Sazabi, OR defeating the Reulura. The last always defends except
during it's phase, and drops nothing good, so count that out; the Sazabi is
more trouble on your battle-weary (by now) force, but needs to be defeated if
you want to see the Nightingale later; and the Musakas are by far the easiest
of the lot, but also the least rewarding. Doing any of them immediately ends
the mission, so pick your poison. Doing any of those will also earn you the AP;
you only can't get the AP if you let one of the Musakas land on the womanish
figure of Orphan.

Notes: Almost exactly like Mission 50 A route, except with a few map changes.
Instead of one whole force, the enemies are split up into two groups, one in
north and one in the south; all this means is that you should split your own
dudes up into two as well, then once again converge on the southwestern area to
handle the reinforcements coming later.

The second part is exactly the same, with the extremely high HP "grunt" enemies
and Belgan in the Sandar. The strategies are also the same; power up with

Reinforcement Enemy Squads: None

AP Condition: Clear the map within 7 turns.

Notes: It's Neo Jion part 2 inside Orphan, and for once, it's a WYSIWYG
mission; what you see is also rather weak compared to what you've just faced in
the previous mission. The Yact Dougas are far less intimidating and damaging
than the Alpha Aziels, and Gato doesn't quite benefit from both him and his Neu
Ziel having A in Air terrain, as opposed to S in Space. The other non-generics
are as weak as ever, and there isn't any nuclear payload to worry about this
time; even Char in the Sazabi has been fought several times before. Char in the
Nightingale, of course, is a different kettle of fish altogether, and even if
they aren't as hard as the previous mission, they still take time to kill, and
if you're going for the AP, you don't have that much of it, especially since
none of the enemies will move an inch from their starting position.

Before the mission, try and set your squads up to have as many flying squads as
possible without skimping on power. When you start, move quickly towards the
remants of the Neo Jion forces, storing your land-bound squads into your
battleships for now. You should be able to land a few hits on turn 2, and
start earnestly attacking on turn 3. I suggest aiming to take out the Gira
Douga grunts by turn 3, and put some damage on Gato; by turn 4, you should
finish Gato off, as well as as many of the non-generic characters you can
handle. Turn 5 should see you cleaning up the remnants of the face characters,
and starting attacks on the Musakas; Turn 6 should finish off the Musakas and
damage the Reulura severely, if not killing it; and turn 7 to kill off Char,
which will be much easier in the Sazabi, but should nevertheless be handled
the same even if he's in the Nightingale.

The Nightingale has some kickass stats, and 140k HP, but it's still a Real in
the end; just an extremely manuverable one. The ALL Funnels are also 4000 in
power and S on most terrains, so you practically HAVE to use defensive seishin
if you want your squad members to survive. Besides that, it's still in the end
another gangbang boss battle, except with the need to use Sure Hit far more
often.

this mission is almost the exact same as mission 51A; the only difference is
that instead of the initial Zera enemies starting in the northeast corner, they
start in the opposite southwest corner instead; Darius and his flunkies still
appear in the northwest corner though, so there's little difference in terms of
distance.

Darius is still as hard as he was in the previous mission, but the initial
enemies seem slightly easier; perhaps because they start a little closer to
you. Both ways, it's still a relatively easy mission that soon becomes another
gang-up-on-the-boss mission. This time, the AP is definitely doable while still
beating up the 4 Grodectors, so grab the items they have.

else occupying the southeast half of the map. The main difference between this
and mission 46 Mikene is of course the greater number of enemies, but the AP
is extended by two turns to account for that, and you can deploy one more squad
as well.

In other words, it's another pathetically easy mission; the only face
characters are thre three Haniwa goons who are STILL in 17k HP Yamada No

alone. The missiles are still annoying, but still trivial; rush in, mash up,

nail into has the Meganoids' name on it. There are a lot of enemies to deal
with, but they're just rehashes of what you've faced before, so there's nothing
particularly difficult abuot this mission, save perhaps Koros in her 90,000 HP
Nibelgen.

As in ALL the other routes, once you lower Koros to below half HP, weak Don
Saucer comes out (weak as in 70,000 HP weak, that is ^^;), and will also cast
Love once Koros is defeated. You COULD just finish Don off first to forgo that,
but then you lose money AND the AP, so that's your choice.

When you kill Don Saucer though, the Zondarians arrive and practically emcee
for the final battle.

Char -- Sazabi[Psycho Frame], Gira Douga(2)

AP Condition: Defeat the Sataran and Jupiteris 9 within 10 turns.

Notes: Ohhhhh boy. If you want a big-arse battle, you've got it here. You've
got two battleships and 16 squads against the combined forces of the two Neo
Jions and the Jupiter Empire, and the enemy list practically reads like a
who's who list of Gundam villains. Not only that, but you have to face
4 of the most dangerous right off the bat, AND you have a time limit of 10
turns to take down the Axis structure. It's time to buckle down for one of, if
not THE hardest mission of the game.

The most immediate concern is the quartet of Gato, Kelly, Gyunei and Quess
right in front of you. You can try to circumvent them and go the long way
around by heading west and north around the meteor field, but that really hurts
your time for the AP. If you rush your force straight forward, you'd most
likely fall prey to Kelly's MAP weapon and get several squad members
demolished. It's a rock and a hard place; so obivously you carefully manuever
yourself between both, by checking the range of Kelly's MAP weapon, which is
range 5 and has a area effect of 3 squares, and have your opening moves be
most of your squads inching forward just enough without getting in the range of
that map weapon, with the possible exception of one or two hardy squads who can
take the hits, and won't incur the Val Varo's MAP since it's just one squad. On
the turn after, you should have all your units still alive; rush in and take
down the Val Varo ASAP, then concentrate on either of the Alpha Aziels while
they're still at low morale; try not to spend TOO much seishin, but use Sure
Hit and Hot Blood if you really need it.

By turn 3, the quartet of doom should be defeated, and you then have another
choice to make; whether to go northwest for the Jupiteris 9 and most of the o
ther enemies first, or to head straight north and take down the few
non-generics and the Sataran and the Reulura. The Jupiteris 9 is obviously
further, and will most likely take more time than heading straight up and
taking out the closest, but if you do choose to take down the Sataran and
Reulura first, you'll likely trigger Char and Hamaan coming out, and with most
of the CB and Jupiter forces chasing you from the west, you're going to come
under a LOT of heavy firepower with likely (relatively) low morale. Take your
choice; just remember to hit on Axis for a bit when you cross over to take out
the other set of battleships, and finish it once both groups are down.

The Reulura runs to the northeastern corner of the map when you defeat it, and
always defends on your turn, so it's not really worth destroying more than
once. Char and Hamaan are practically similar; high dodging and ALL Funnels =
death for squad members, and similar amounts of HP. Most of your seishin will
probably be spent on them and Kalas, who's still in his highly manuverable 70k
HP Nautilus. Zabine isn't a slouch in dodging either, but fortunately his
Crossbone X2 is a piddling 19,600 HP, while the Death Gale Squadron should be
far easier than they were before, now that you have access to powerful ALL
attacks.

Basically, this mission will test everything you've learnt from SRW, from
rushing bosses with low morale to damage control to ganging up on bosses to
seishin management. Use every bit of experience you have to get yourself
through this mission relatively unscathed and with the AP.

2x (Mikross -- Almighty Fortress Mikross, Dolrag(2))
Mikene -- Balkania, Gogura(2)
Mikene -- Gold Phoenix, Toruken(2)
Mikene -- Psycho Bear, Skull(2)

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating the Dark Emperor.

Notes: Yeah, it's ANOTHER final battle with Mikene, and actually, it's very
similar to mission 51 B1, except with some more enemies to deal with. It
should be dealt with similarly. Unlike 51 B1, though, you should try to
conserve as much of both SP and EN as possible, since you're not getting any
free refills this time around.

The Don Saucer that appears YET AGAIN once you lower Koros to below 50% HP is
the strong 170,000 HP one, which means major problems. Thankfully there's no AP
condition attached to him or Koros, so you can take him out directly without
having him cast Love by defeating Koros. As a nice bit, all the Meganoids will
self-destruct once you kill Don Saucer too.

Besides them, it's the usual useless Mikene Generals and Dr. Hell, who you've
fought several times over by now. Once you kill everyone, the Dark Emperor
appears, but so do the Good Thunder and Isabel who proceeds to show everyone
around the earth cheering your dudes on, and fighting off the Mikenes by
themselves as well. You can then start your assault on grunts before the Dark
Emperor to gain the AP, and hopefully you've saved up enough seishin and EN to
finish the job. Of course, both can be made up for somewhat with the Hope and
Resupply seishin, but still...

After the mission, your force escapes from the Mikene Fortress and watches it
collapse from the outside; then the Custos, this time accompanied by a
beautiful lady appear, and wonders of wonders, it's Irui, all grown up. She
then reveals that she's the protector of the earth, and your dudes were her
sword, so to speak. She then proceeds to seal up the earth to prevent any
outside influence; your dudes obviously won't stand up for that, so it's time
to head to Baral to stop her.

After the mision, you receive 1 Victory Meal and 1 Super Repair Kit.

EI-01 -- EI-01
2x (EI-15 -- EI-15)
10X (EI-02 -- EI-02)

AP Condition: Defeat all other enemies before defeating EI-01.

Notes: Your forces start split up into two groups, and logically you should
send each group to their nearest respective enemies. You probably want to send
Guy with the eastern group so that he can have his showdown with Pizza.

The starting of this mission is similar to that of two missions ago; load up
your non-flying squads into the closest Mothership, and fly your way to the
nearest enemies before unloading by turn 3, preferably turn 2. The enemies are
also split up, and on the surface, Penchinon and Pizza's side are harder than
Primada and Pironess. Don't forget though that whenever you kill either one of
the husband-and-wife team, the other casts Love on itself, and with your
seperated forces, you'll have to plan carefully and make sure you have squads
available to attack the team to ward off the Hot Blood and Flash so that one
of them don't completely decimate a squad. If you want to use Pizza, don't
forget to use Guy to take him down.

Once you finish off the Zondarians, it's time to converge on the retard Don
Saucer. This is the hard Don Saucer though, with 170k HP and that ever-annoying
-20% damage Squad Leader Skill. Throw your best attacks at him, but try to
save up on seishin a little; make sure you leave enough for at least one Hot
Blood or Spirit for your squad leaders, although you can feel free to exhaust
your squad member's defensive seishin if you wish; it's not very easy to do
that anyway.

Once Don Saucer goes down, EI-01 and some more EI flunkies show up, and the
usual 50-morale-reduced-EN-reduced-HP-locked-seishin event happens. Fortunately
for you though, EI-01 will refrain from taking advantage of your weakened state
by not attacking you throughout, so you only have the EIs to fend off, and even
with 50 morale, it's not that hard. Just make sure that your Squad Leaders have
good enough dodging prowess to avoid the rather damaging attack, or that the
attack will definitely kill off the enemy. Concentrate on the EI-02s, since
they have 10,000 HP, and usually only require two squads to deal with per.

On the next turn, the Good Thunder sequence from the other route takes place,
and has the nice effect of restoring your units' morale back to 100. HP, EN
and seishin are still handicapped though, and Guy then requests the Shell X to
fix that problem. The Shell X sequence from the other routes then takes place;
the only difference is that you have to wait 1 turn instead of 2, and should
take out the lingering EI-15s meanwhile.

Once the Shell X activates, it's (Goldlion) hammer time. Your GGG dudes don't
have 300 morale, but 150 morale and refilled HP and EN is by far enough to lay
a righteous smackdown on the gooey ass of Pasta... as long as you took my
advice and saved at least one round of seishin anyway. ^^;

After the mission, the ending combines both that of the Shell X ending and the
Irui sequence from the other route. It's time to take over the role as the
protector of the world.

You also receive 1 Victory Meal and 1 Super Repair Kit after the mission.

On Turn 1.5:

7x (Dogachi -- Divinidad)

After defeating 4 Divinidads:

Dogachi -- Divinidad[Minovsky Drive]

AP Condition: Clear the map within 8 turns.

Notes: After the adrenaline rush of the previous mission, this one is almost a
letdown comparatively. There's only two initial face characters; Nanai in the
Reulura, who is not even slightly dangerous although she'll still take some
time to take down given her 90k HP and Damage -10% Squad Leader Skill, and Char
in the considerably more troublesome Sazabi or Nightingale. Besides them, there
are only the standard Neo Jion and Crossbone mobile suits and mobile armours
to deal with, which aren't much of a problem; it's practically a crash-and-mash
scenario, albeit one with a 10-turn time limit. If you play it smart though,
it's very easy to finish it within 8.

Dogachi turns up to make things interesting almost immediately though, and just
like in mission 52 of the other route, there's 7 of his clones to contend with.
You have to be slightly more careful in this route though, since there's a
rather large possibility that a squad will come under fire of both Char and
several of the Dogachis at the same time, which is practically a death knoll
for that squad. I suggest taking out the Dogachi clones ASAP first, since a
Dogachi clone has far less HP than the Sazabi or Nightingale, and most likely
you'll meet the Clones first anyway since they rush you from the start.

Just like in mission 52 as well, once you defeat 4 of the Dogachi clones, the
real McCoy shows up. This time he starts a little far away from the action
though, so you should probably handle the rest of the Dogachi clones and Char
before taking him on.

Char himself is your standard boss, except don't even think of getting a decent
hit rate without the help of seishin. To make up for this, he has far less
defense than the average hard-shelled boss, so although you have to spend more
seishin, he also goes down faster.

Dogachi is more like your standard Super boss weighing in at 200k HP, but he
doesn't have any damage-reducing skills, making it that much easier to take
him down. Just go mondo with whatever seishin you have left on him, and finish
off the Spacenoid alliance for good.

After the mission, the Good Thunder sequence happens again, while your dudes
desperately try to push away Axis, and Orphan comes in at the end and saves
everyone's butts in a very deus ex machina fashion. Right after that, the Irui
sequence from all the other routes happens. The next battle will now shape the
destiny of the Earth.

After the mission, you receive 1 Victory Meal and 1 Super Repair Kit.

Enemy Reinforcement Squads: None

AP Condition: None

Notes: It's the final battle, and your enemy is the Custos that have helped you
so many times before. Although I put 7 each of the Kanafs, Klens and Zanavs in
the enemy statistics, 6 of them are actually "fake" ones, and have 15-20k HP,
while three are the real ones with 6-digit HP. The general idea is to take out
the fake Custos, either take out the real ones for morale or ignore them, then
focus every thing you have onto the Gun Eden. Note that the stage is actually
half space and half land; when your squads reach the solid ground of Baral,
you'll have to manually set them to fly if they can.

Before the mission starts in earnest, you get a choice on whether to save Irui
or destroy the Gun Eden. If you choose the latter, you can just destroy without
worrying too much abouy anything else; you'll get a different and "worse"
ending though. If you choose the former, you'll have to go through a slightly
tedious convincing process, but get a better ending.

The main problem you'll have on this stage is not the Custos, nor the Gun Eden
itself (although that's definitely a very, very big problem); rather, it's
amassing the morale that's sufficient to defeat the Gun Eden. With only 21
enemies to defeat, 3 of which are extremely hard to, You'll have to excercise
Morale management for the first time really, and try other methods to gain
morale; for example, have your Supers take as many hits as possible, since
most of them gain 3 morale for taking damage, and use all the Morale+ skills
you have to their fullest extent; the High Spirits skill is VERY useful here.
Real Robot fans unfortunately get the short end of the stick here, since most
of them gain no morale for what they specialize in doing (except for the crazy
ones like Ivis of course ^^;), and you'd be well-advised to stick pilots with
Rally in their squads. Fortunately, most Real Robot weapons aren't too
dependant on Morale, but the stats increase of Abandon and such can still help
a great deal.

Regardless, you have a choice to make; whether to take down the real Custos or
to leave them alone. Taking the latter course of action is generally more
dangerous since then you'll likely come under ALL attack fire from all 3 Custos
AND the Gun Eden, which most likely means death for the poor squad picked. On
the other hand, if you take those high-HP Custos down, you're still exposing
yourself to heavy fire, but will probably have to use up some of your seishin
as well. I usually use a poor compromise; try your best to take down the Custos
using very little, if any seishin from your Squad Leaders or any Robot that has
a strong attack, but don't spare on the defensive seishin for your squad
members or the EN for your best attacks, since likely you'll have plenty of
that to go around.  Casting Confusion on every turn of engaging the Custos in
combat also helps, as does luring them away from the Gun Eden so that it can't
snipe you while you deal with them.

Once you take the Custos down, it's time to finish off the Gun Eden; all 500k
HP of it. Yes, 500k; more than twice than anything you've ever faced, not to
mention Guard and IMMENSE Armour, the most powerful enemy ALL attack in the
game (and possibly the longest in the game, period), humongous range of 15 for
one of its attacks, 150 morale, EN Recovery, and power all around.

Before that though, if you chose to save Irui earlier, you have your chance
now. First, you have to persuade Irui with your main character; after that,
you then have to persuade Irui with any 5 main characters from series, like
Kouji, Hyouma, Judouu, Camille, Kinkedou, Tobia, Shingo, Banjou, etc. After
this, then you can commence your assault on the Gun Eden in earnest.

The Gun Eden fortunately DOES have a few weaknesses; it's very easy to run it
completely out of EN, since its strongest attack requires 40 EN, and the only
point-blank attack it has requires 8 EN; force it to use up its EN to the point
where it has less than 8, and anyone range 1 or 2 can hit the Gun Eden without
any fear of retaliation. If you're a masochist, you can also try to run the Gun
Eden completely out of it's last, 99 Ammo attack by plonking a highly
manuverable unit like Nelly Brain or Hi Nu Gundam just within range 15 and
waiting 99(...) turns, although I most definitely don't recommend it.

It's other weakness is that it actually has pretty poor morale gains; none for
hitting or missing as far as I remember, and only 3 morale for getting hit.
This means that the Gun Eden is very susceptible to Exhaust; get her down to
50 morale, and it's unlikely that she can get back to the maximum morale before
you destroy her, which says a lot considering she has 500k HP. Spiking her
morale also has the effect of deactivating her Guard skill, which greatly helps
in damaging the Gun Eden decently.

If you exploit these two weaknesses to their fullest extent, the Gun Eden
suddenly won't seem as intimidatingly hard as it looks. You'll still take at
least two turns, and likely 3 or 4 (or more if you're playing a no-upgrade
game) to finish it off, but it won't be able to hit you too hard, and it should
be a relatively easy battle. After you defeat her, enjoy the ending, and don't
forget to save after the credits roll! ^^;


===============================
13)Secrets
===============================


All these secrets have been confirmed by myself unless otherwise noted. Secrets
are arranged according to the earliest step needed to unlock them.

------------------------------------------------
Radora, Musashi, Black Getter and Sieg
------------------------------------------------

Not available on Arad and Ivis routes. For Zengar, on stage 5, have Ryouma
enter a battle with Radora to start a conversation. On stage 19, have Ryouma
fight Zanki. On stage 23, Ryouma should be able to persuade Radora; destroy him
afterwards. On stage 24, have any of the Getter Team fight Radora, then leave
Radora's unit alive while fufilling the winning conditions. For Kusuha, on
stage 8, have Ryouma defeat Radora, then follow the same procedures for stages
23 and 24. Radora will join up with his Sieg, Musashi will become the co-pilot
for the Ready Command, and Ryouma can use the Black Getter if you so wish.

------------------------------------------------
Lieutenant Barns and Totouga (Unconfirmed)
------------------------------------------------

Only available on Ivis route. on every stage that Barns appears, make sure
that Tobia attacks him at least once. On stage 52 if you accepted Hamaan's
peace offer or stage 55 if you didn't, the Death Gale Squadron will be an
enemy; defeat Gilly and Rosemary, and leave Barns alive while fufilling the
winning conditions, and he will join. It is possible that he is only obtainable
if you decline the peace offer.

Note that this is HIGHLY unconfirmed. Most of the steps are not exact, and the
last step is pure speculation on my part. Dragoon T has confirmed that
following these steps still doesn't unlock him, but I'll leave it here just for
the possibility, as I've heard official Japanese guides and seen Japanese pages
that say he's recruitable.

------------------------------------------------
Crossbone Gundam X2
------------------------------------------------

Not available on Kusuha route, and automatically received on Arad route. For
Ivis, on stage 10, have Tobia weaken the Crossbone Gundam X2 to critical HP
without killing it. For Zengar, follow the same procedure, except on stage 15.

------------------------------------------------
Richter, Prince Hainel, Gimeria and Guardian Deity Godol
------------------------------------------------

On a certain stage for every character (18 for Zengar, 19 for Kusuha, 13 for
Arad, 14 for Ivis), there will be a conversation mid-battle where a person
called Halleck will challenge Kazuya to a duel; accept this duel. Before stage
26, you have to choose between going to help the Novis Noah, or fighting the
Neo Jion forces; choose the latter, and have Kazuya fight Richter on stage 28.
Before stage 33, you have to choose between going to the Moon or going to Axis;
choose the latter again. If you've done it correctly, instead of launching a
kamikaze attack on the 4 Grodectors on stage 51, Richter and Hainel will simply
destroy the Death Cross devices, and will aid you for the rest of the scenario.
They leave after that scenario, but also show up as reinforcements on the last
stage.

There are supposedly other methods to unlock this secret which does not force
you on certain routes, but I have not confirmed them.

------------------------------------------------
Takeru
------------------------------------------------

Only available on Zengar route. On stage 19, have Kotetsu Jeeg and ONLY
Kotetsu Jeeg attack Takeru. Takeru will show up as a reinforcement on stage
22, and join up after.

------------------------------------------------
Jonathan, Quincy and Shira
------------------------------------------------

On stage 26 of Neo Jion route, or 29 of Vital Net route, make sure Yuu is
deployed and alive when you defeat Quincy. On Stage 53, have Yuu defeat Quincy.
They will appear on the last stage to help you in their Gran Chers. Although I
defeated Quincy with Yuu, you may only need to have Yuu fight Quincy once,
according to the GameFAQs message board regulars.

------------------------------------------------
Wing Gundam (Katoki Design)
------------------------------------------------

By the end of stage 32, the combined level of all the Gundam Wing boys should
be above 170. If this requirement is achieved, you will receive the Wing Gundam
immediately after.

------------------------------------------------
Full Armour ZZ Gundam
------------------------------------------------

On stage 33, have Tobia deal the finishing blow on the Elgolera. You will
receive the Full Armour parts for the ZZ Gundam after stage 43.

------------------------------------------------
GP-02 Physalis
------------------------------------------------

On Arad route, on stage 37, fufill the AP condition by defeating Yazan in the
GP-02. For all other routes, Kou must have 80 or more kills before stage 38.
You will receive it later after stage 43.

------------------------------------------------
Z Gundam's Hyper Beam Saber and Waverider Attack
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 38, have Camille in the Z Gundam, and fight Yazan Gable. Assuming both
units survive, Camille will learn both attacks immediately after. Note that the
Waverider Attack is only available when the Z Gundam is in Waverider mode.

------------------------------------------------
ZZ Gundam's Hi Mega Cannon (Full Power)
------------------------------------------------

In the conversations before stage 34, you have the choice of either going to
the Moon or to Axis. If you decide to go to Axis, on stage 36, you will
eventually fight Hamaan Khan. Have Judou in the ZZ Gundam, and engage her in
combat. Assuming both units survive, Judou will learn the attack after.

Alternatively, On Stage 38, have Judou in the ZZ Gundam, and fight Char
Aznable. Assuming both units survive, Judou will learn the attack after.

------------------------------------------------
Crossbone Gundam X1's Screw Whip
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 38, have Kinkedou in the Crossbone X1. After a story event, he will
run off after Zabine into the southeast corner of the map. Reduce Zabine below
half HP, and a series of events will take place, where you'll lose both
Kinekdou and the Crossbone X1. On stage 43, they will return, and the X1 will
have gotten the Screw Whip.

Supposedly if you don't sortie Kinkedou in Stage 38, he becomes an Event
character on stage 39, and the same events automatically happen anyway, making
this a bit of a non-secret. ^^;

------------------------------------------------
Hi Nu Gundam
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 38, have Amuro in the Re-GZ. During the battle, have Amuro fight Char
in the RE-GZ MS mode, NOT the BWS mode; in other words, you'll have to seperate
the RE-GZ early on, and both units must survive. You will then receive the Hi
Nu Gundam after stage 43.

------------------------------------------------
Dorel Rona and Belga Giros
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 38, have either Kinkedou or Bella fight Dorel once to initiate a
conversation. On stage 49, if you choose to accept the ceasefire with Hamaan,
he will immediately join your party.

------------------------------------------------
Nightingale(Enemy)
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 38, force Char to retreat by lowering his HP below 50,000. If you
choose to accept Hamman's ceasefire offer on stage 49, then on Stage 53, fufill
the winning conditions by defeating Char instead of defeating all the Musakas
or the Reulura. If you chose to decline Hamaan's ceasefire offer, this step
occurs on Stage 55. On the next stage, instead of sortying in the Sazabi,
Char will sortie in the far-more-dangerous Nightingale. There is no known way
of receiving the Nightingale as a usable unit.

------------------------------------------------
Extra Cost Down
------------------------------------------------

On stage 41, make sure Boss is in one of your squads, then move the squad
containing Boss in it on one of the beach squares next to the rickety old house
that your force starts near. You will receive the Cost Down after some
conversation between Boss and his lackeys.

------------------------------------------------
Nu Gundam HWS
------------------------------------------------

Before stage 43, upgrade the Nu Gundam's weapons 5 times at least. You will
get the HWS parts for the Nu Gundam after the mission, and can equip it onto
the Nu Gundam on the intermission before stage 44.

------------------------------------------------
Pizza and EI-26
------------------------------------------------

Only available if you chose the Mikene route at the start of mission 46. If you
chose to accept the ceasefire with Hamaan, on stage 56, defeat Pizza with Guy.
He will appear in the EI-26 later to help you defeat EI-01, but will not stay
after. If you chose not to accept the ceasefire, the same events will happen,
but instead of stage 56, it occurs on stage 51.

------------------------------------------------
Star GaoGaiGar
------------------------------------------------

On stage 47 of Japan route, or stage 47, part 2 of Mikene route, you must have
all of Guy's terrain ratings be S, and have the GaoGaiGar fall below 500 HP at
least once in the scenario (you will not get any conversation or any sort of
prompt to show you that you've done it correctly). You will then receive the
Stealth Gao II part for the GaoGaiGar; if you played Japan route, you will
receive it immediately after stage 47, while if you played Mikene route, you
will receive it just before stage 48 starts.

------------------------------------------------
Bundol, Kuttnel and Kelknuckle
------------------------------------------------

On stage 48, you will be fighting the three Dokuga generals. After you defeat
or force them to retreat, several missiles will be released, and the three
generals will help you destroy them. Keep them alive during this period, and
they will join you in the last stage, albeit all in Bundol's ship.

------------------------------------------------
Doben Wolf
------------------------------------------------

On stage 49, accept the ceasefire with Hamaan. You will receive the Doben Wolf
immediately after.

------------------------------------------------
Mass Produced Qubeley Mk II
------------------------------------------------

On stage 49, accept the ceasefire with Hamaan, and have the Purus have 30 kills
each. For each Puru with 30 kills, you get one Mass Produced Qubeley Mk II.

------------------------------------------------
Hamaan Khan and Qubeley
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 49, accept the ceasefire with Hamaan. On Stage 52, Hamaan will be an
NPC. Complete the stage with her alive (which isn't too hard, considering her
Qubeley has 99,000 HP...) and she'll join your party with her (unfortunately
downgraded) Qubeley.

------------------------------------------------
Nuclear Missile MAP and ALL attack for Ral Kairam
------------------------------------------------

Follow the steps to recruit Hamaan, and you will get the weapons on the same
stage that you accepted the ceasefire. If you do not accept the treaty, you
will get the missiles on stage 55.

------------------------------------------------
GP-02's Nuclear Bazooka
------------------------------------------------

On Stage 49, refuse Hamaan's ceasefire. You will receive the Nuclear Bazooka
for the GP-02, assuming you received it, on stage 55.

14)Miscellanous Notes
===============================


A little section where I'd place anything notable I've found out in this game.

-Leadership auras are NOT stackable. Units only take the biggest bonus they
get from a single leadership aura. In other words, if a unit is right next
to a unit with Level 4 Leadership, and 2 squares away from another unit with
level 3 Leadership, it only gains the bonus from the Level 4 Leadership aura.

-Giving a pilot a skill using your Pilot Points (PP) is stackable. For
example,  if Amuro has a Sword Cut level of 5 and you give him Sword Cut +1,
you'll have a combined Sword Cut level of 6, over two skill slots. You can
continuously add to the slot containing the Sword Cut +1, to make it Sword
Cut +2, Sword Cut +3, etc, which will all stack up with whatever Amuro has
naturally.  Similarly, if Amuro has a Support Attack level of 0 (i.e he has no
Support Attack skill), and you give him Support Attack +1, his total Support
Attack level will be 1.

-If you try and use the extra skill slots to increase a pilot's natural skills,
you might find that sometimes the additional skill doesn't go very high at all;
Using the same example, Amuro currently has Sword Cut level 2, but the game
doesn't allow you to add more than Sword Cut +3 in an extra skill slot. This
is because the game takes in the maximum potential of the pilot's natural
skills, then adds any additional bonuses from the player, and ensures that the
level of these skills can't go above the level 9 cap. In other words, since
Amuro's maximum natural Sword Cut level is 6, the most number of additional
Sword Cut levels you can add to her is 3, to make 9. You can't go above level
9 for any skill.

-Some pilots who can learn Sword Cut and Shield Defense may appear to have no
use for them. This is because the skill upgrades factor in whatever units the
pilot can use as well, thus you can stick the Resupply Device pilot skill on
Kouji just because he CAN ride the Boz Borot, even though no one in his right
mind would put him there. ^^;

-The formula for computing the amount of cash and PP that carries over from
finished saves is:

n/(n+1)

where n is the number of times you've finished the game. As an example, if you
have finished the game with Arad, and throughout the course of the game, you
earned 900 PP for him (including those you spent on skills). Thus when you
start a new game using Zengar, he will start with:

1/(1+1)
=1/2

Half the PP Arad had earned, or 450 PP. If you then earn another 750 PP while
finishing the game with Zengar, totally 1200, then start a new game with
Kusuha, the amount of PP you'll start with will be:

2/(2+1)
=2/3rd

Two thirds the PP Zengar had earned, or 800 PP. Cash is carried over using the
same formula, and also factors in the cash you spent on upgrades.

-Criticals do 1.25x damage, the same as in Super Robot Wars Reversal.

-The list of upgrades that carry over for units are:

Qubeley Mk IIs --> Mass Produced Qubeleys
All Main Character's Mechas --> All Secondary Main Character's Mechas
Black Getter --> Getter Dragon --> Shin Getter
Mazinger Z --> Mazinkaiser
Arad's Huckebein Mk III --> Viletta's Huckebein Mk III & Retsuel's Huckebein
Mk III Trombe
Yuu Brain --> Nelly Brain
GP-03 Stamen --> GP-03 Dendrobrium
Hyouryou <--> Enryou --> Choryuujin

-Size plays a much larger role in damage than in previous SRW games; LL size
battleships do considerably more damage than S size Brain Powerds, even if
they use attacks with the same base power.

-On that note, Battleships this time kick major ass. The Mother Vanguard isn't
the most powerful, but the LL size helps a lot and can actually dodge, while
Shield Defense makes it potentially the most durable. The Daikuu Maryuu has a
powerful and relatively cheap final attack in Giant Cutter, and a large array
of moves otherwise, as well as Pete having the useful Damage -10% ability to
go with the damage reduction bonuses of LL size battleships. The Ral Kairam is
THE most powerful of the lot, with easy-to-use MAP nuke missiles and an
extremely powerful Nuclear Missile ALL attack, although suffers a little from
lack of ammo. The poor Albion kinda gets shafted though. ^^;

-Mucha and Suke only get their seishins at level 80, so be prepared to use the
Repair/Resupply level-up trick often to get there.

-There's a fairly well-known bug that involves the transferring of bonus PP
from finished game saves; basically that sometimes, Benkei, and/or Musashi
and/or Volfogg might not have their PP carried over as a bonus on replay games.
The cause is unknown; Gundamtotoro suspects that its something that only occurs
when playing Zengar's route, and it's also probable that you have to remove
Big Volfogg's parts to change him into Volfogg at the last stage if you want
his PP to carry over.

-In Zengar's stage 31, there's a short period where you have a disabled
Daizengar without its Zankantou. During this time, it has two weapons you won't
see otherwise; the Dynamic Knuckle and General Blaster. If you gave Zengar
the Support Attack pilot skill before the stage, you can actually see the
Dynamic Knuckle in "action" by having Zengar support Retsuel. The problem is
that the programmers at Banpresto obviously didn't expect this, as the Dynamic
Knuckle's "animation", if you could call it that, is extremely glitched. It
starts as a fairly cool scene where two circles appear at the ground and one
like a targetting cursor right before Daizengar, then the game freezes for a
second. The scene then switches to Kukuru's side, where you'll see the
Daizengar suddenly appear next to the Ma Garuga, and the game sorta freezes
again, except for three multicoloured bars, the lowest one covering Daizengar
and constantly fading to the background. Eventually the game will stop
freezing, and the Daizengar will slowly inch towards the Ma Garuga until they
touch, then you see damage inflicted, and the Daizengar just disappears into
thin air. Not to mention that throughout this whole period, there's no battle
quotes; not even if you kill Kukuru with the attack. Lazy lazy, Banpresto. ^^;

-For some reason, Heero Yuy appears to have the most number of non-generic
battle quotes. This includes at least 2 against Lond Bel members(at the first
two stages of Arad's route), several against Zechs, a couple against Titans,
Jion and Neo Jion soldiers, a couple against Mechasauruses and Battle Beasts,
two against battleships, one against Haniwas, one against Newtypes, one against
Hamaan Khan, one against Char Aznable, one against Yazan Cable, and at least
two against Gun Eden. Not bad for someone who epitomizes the meaning of the
word "brevity".

-All stats cannot be increased beyond 400, manually or naturally.
