    | 4.  WELCOME |================================================================
    +=============+
    
    Welcome to my FAQ for Secret Weapons Over Normandy (SWON).  Since this is a
    war/action/shooter type of game, there is no walkthrough per se.  Instead, this
    FAQ is broken up into parts.  First you will be given an explanation of choices
    you have for playing the game.  Next, you will be given all the possible
    commands you can give with a brief description of what those commands are.  The
    last part is dedicated to strategy.  This strategy will give you an idea on how
    to fulfill the requirements for getting the various items or doing the various
    tasks required to complete each area.  Input is appreciated along with
    constructive criticism.  If you wish to e-mail me thoughts on this FAQ, better
    ways of doing things, other strategies, etc., feel free.  Make sure you put
    SWON in the subject.  If you don't, I'm liable to discard the e-mail as spam.
    
    +==============+
    | 5.  OVERVIEW |===============================================================
    +==============+
    
    SWON takes place in both the European Theater of Operations (ETO) and Pacific
    Theater of Operations (PTO). You will be able to fly historic fighters and
    bombers through the campaign, instant action, or two-player modes.  Campaign
    mode will allow you to go through 14 historic places and/or battles to the
    final showdown on the shores of Normandy during D-Day.  You will be part of an
    elite group of pilots called the Battlehawks (or Hawks) for short.  Your
    purpose in life is to take on and defeat Nemesis in a series of battles.  Of
    course, some of these battles are in the category of "what if..." which makes
    these campaigns even more interesting.  You will be given primary and sometimes
    secondary and bonus objectives to complete.  During the instant action, you
    will get to choose several things from the type of plane to the quality of the
    pilots you will face.  Score is kept to see if you or your opponent is the
    better pilot.  In the two-player mode, you can battle with a friend in a split-
    screen environment to see who the better pilot is.  In addition to flying
    historic planes, you will also be able to use the historic weapons such as
    bombs, rockets, and torpedoes on various targets.  There are also extra
    missions you can do to get upgrade points (called requisitions) for your planes
    to improve such things as performance, armament, and protection.  For any of
    the things you choose to do, it will be a combination of the plane that you
    choose and your skill as a pilot that will determine victory or defeat.  So get
    ready to strap yourself into the cockpit and do battle with an opponent who
    would love to see you going down in a ball of flame.

    +==================+
    | 6.  THE MISSIONS |===========================================================
    +==================+
    
    SWON will require you to go through fifteen missions.  Within each of these
    missions there are primary, secondary, and bonus objectives.  You must only
    satisfactorily complete the primary objectives to move onto the next mission.
    The missions are aptly named Mission 1 through 15.  Your success or failure in
    these missions will greatly impact future events.  In addition to the Campaign,
    you can also play in Instant Action or Two-Player.  Instant Action allows you
    to use planes and landscapes you have unlocked during the game.  Two-Player
    also allows this.  In addition, there are seven two-player missions that have
    the players working cooperatively or against each other.  All these are
    discussed later in the FAQ.

     ____________________________
    / 7.2  Main Menu:  Campaign /__________________________________________________
    ----------------------------
    
    Once you have chosen Campaign, you will get another menu of choices:
    
    +-----------+
    | MISSION # |
    +-----------+
    
    This is the current Mission you are on.  If you are just starting, it will be
    at Mission 1.
    
    +-----------+
    | CHALLENGE |
    +-----------+
    
    This enables you to play the Challenge Missions.  You don't have to complete a
    Mission to access these and it is usually recommended you play these before the
    Mission.  Only Mission 1 has this as Tutorials.
    
    +--------+
    | HANGER |
    +--------+
    
    This allows you to go to the hanger to modify the aircraft currently within it.
    You must have 1 or greater Requisitions available in order to upgrade your
    selected aircraft.  To upgrade, choose the aircraft and press the CIRCLE
    button.  You will be able to choose from the following upgrades:
    
    ARMOR I - III     :  Adds 25% increase in damage protection and a 10% loss is
                         speed and maneuvering.

    AIRFRAME I - III  :  Improves flight controls by 10%
    EXTRA GUN AMMO    :  Doubles your ammunition capacity.  Engine performance in-
                         creased to compensate for extra weight.
    DOUBLE BOMB RACK  :  Doubles your bomb capacity.  Engine performance increased
                         to compensate for extra weight.
    DOUBLE ROCKET RACK:  Doubles your rocket capacity.  Engine performance in-
                         creased to compensate for extra weight.
    EXTRA CANNON AMMO :  Doubles your cannon ammunition capacity.  Engine
                         performance increased to compensate for extra weight.
    
    +---------+
    | HISTORY |
    +---------+
    
    Allows you to re-play missions that you have already played.  This also
    includes the Challenge Missions.
    
     __________________________________
    / 7.3  Main Menu:  Instant Action /____________________________________________
    ----------------------------------
    
    This allows you to set up different factors to play against the game.  These
    factors are:
    
    SCORE      :  You set the kills at 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, or None for no
                  scoring limit.
    TIME       :  You set a time limit of 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 minutes or
                  None for no time limit.
    ENVIRONMENT:  You start off with one environment.  As you progress through the
                  Campaign, you unlock more environments for a total of 15.  These
                  environments are:  Dunkirk, Dover Cliffs, Brittany, North Africa,
                  Siam, Burma, Pacific Ocean, Denmark, Eastern Front, East Germany,
                  Norway, Northern Germany, Peenemunde, Deep in Germany, and Utah
                  Beach.
    
    The next screen allows you to choose characteristics for you and your opponents
    aircraft.  These are:
    
    CRAFT TYPE      :  Initially, you will only start with the Hurricane as yours
                       or your opponent's aircraft.  As you play through the
                       Campaigns, you can acquire more aircraft for a total of 26.
                       See Chapters 10 and 13 for all the aircraft you can acquire.
    SECONDARY WEAPON:  You get to choose yours and your opponent's secondary
                       weapon.  See Chapter 14 for more details on secondary
                       weapons.
    WINGMAN         :  Choose from 0 to 5 wingmen.
    SKILL           :  Your or your opponent's skill as a Cadet, Regular, or Ace.
    
    The next screen allows you to choose upgrades for yours and your opponent's
    aircraft.  You can choose from Armor I-III, Engine I-III, and/or Airframe
    I-III.
    
    After this screen, you are ready to play.
    
     ______________________________
    / 7.4  Main Menu:  Two Player /________________________________________________
    ------------------------------
    
    You can choose from Instant Action (which is played like Chapter 7.3 except
    your opponent chooses everything versus you) or Two Player.
    
    If you choose Two Player, you can choose from one of seven challenges (see
    Chapter 12 for more details).  Once you have chosen the challenge, then you and
    your opponent (or ally) choose your aircraft and characteristics.  The only
    things different from instant action are that you don't choose the Wingman or
    the Skill level.
    
    You then choose the Controller layout.  It is the same as the Controller layout
    from the OPTIONS menu.  After you and your opponent (or ally) have chosen, you
    are ready to start.

    | 9.  GENERAL STRATEGIES |=====================================================
    +========================+
    
    SWON is a fast paced game.  You must be able to think quickly and react
    quickly to every changing situations.  These general strategies hopefully will
    help you accomplish the mission objectives so that you don't have to deal with
    a lot of frustration.  These specific strategies are not all-encompassing and
    there are many other things others have done.  I have found, however, that
    these worked for me since I shared in the frustration.
    
    Some general strategies are:
    
    -  First, and foremost, learn how to operate your fighter.  You are fighting in
       a three-dimensional environment, which means that you can be attacked for
       several directions at one time.  Sometimes the difference between life and
       death is being able to fly evasively to accelerate/decelerate quickly.  As
       you progress through the campaigns, the enemy comes out with newer and
       faster planes that can take you out quickly if you aren't prepared.  As you
       get farther in the game, the enemy gets more precise with their shooting and
       they become a lot deadlier.  Failing to learn how to fly will prevent you
       from getting through the later missions.
    
    -  It's good to be a hero but being stupid in how you do it can be the
       difference between coming home from battle or becoming part of the
       countryside.  You need to be very familiar with all aspects of your fighter
       since you won't have much time to think about what you are doing.  This way,
       you don't play chicken with another fighter who is coming at you.  Instead,
       you can out-maneuver them instead and get in your shots.  Learn to fly by
       using the HUD and only use visual when you know there is a target that needs
       to be dealt with.
    
    -  Altitude is a big key in this game.  If you can get higher then your
       opponents, it will give you an opportunity to swoop down and rake them, pull
       up and come in for another pass.  If you are forced to climb after an
       opponent, you make yourself a vulnerable target.  This is especially true if
       your plane has a poor climb rate.  In addition, if you try to climb too
       fast, you run the risk of stalling your fighter, which could lead you being
       put into a very deadly situation.  For defensive purposes, altitude can be a
       lifesaver.  Many American planes were able to save themselves by out diving
       their opponents.  This was the only time the American planes outran the
       enemy planes.  When you are doing this, make sure you are looking at your
       altimeter or you could end up a greasy spot in the ground.
    
    -  Speed is another factor in this game.  Just because you have the fastest
       plane on the planet doesn't necessarily equate to being the best plane to
       fly.  If you are dealing with an opponent who flies much slower then you,
       then you must throttle back so you don't overshoot them and give them a free
       shot.  This also works in reverse where you are dealing with a faster
       opponent.  Speed equates to turn radius and you can make a much tighter turn
       radius when you are going slow.  This can work to your advantage when
       dealing with faster planes (i.e. jets) because you can turn inside them and
       always have a chance for a shot.  Of course, don't keep up the slow speed
       too long or you will become the hunted instead of the hunter.
    
    -  Make sure you use the right plane for the right job.  Some planes are better
       suited for interceptor use while others excel at ground attack.  The mission
       at hand will determine what the right plane is.  Sometimes, you can
       "customize" a plane and use it for most of the game because it balances most
       aspects of a plane and it allows you to use it in multiple roles.  Again,
       this one is up to you.
    
    -  Requisitions can turn a mediocre plane into a deadly machine.  Although you
       can only increase things such as speed, armor, etc. by only three points,
       this could be the difference between making it back to base or just becoming
       another statistic.  Just remember to use your requisitions wisely and don't
       try to "beef" up all of your planes.  Just upgrade the ones that you will
       use the most.  This usually takes it down to two or three planes that a
       player uses.  Again, this one is up to you as to how you want to use your
       requisitions.
    
    -  Learn how to do multiple things at once.  You will not only have to pay
       attention to what is outside of your canopy, but you must also pay attention
       to the plane itself.  Always check the dials and other indicators to make
       sure you always have the "big picture" of the condition of your plane and
       where it's at in relation to its environment.  Sometimes the game will warn
       you of bad things while other times you must figure them out for yourself.
    
    -  Pay attention to in game messages since they will tell your what you need to
       do.  In addition, they also may provide clues as to how to deal with a
       particular situation.
    
    -  Learn how to cycle through targets quickly in order to take care of the most
       immediate threats first.  This will be especially true when you are de-
       fending something against aircraft or rockets.
    
    -  Learn the weaknesses of the enemy.  This will go a long way in being able to
       defeat them with minimal damage and effort on your part.  If you find that
       you are struggling against a particular enemy, change tactics.
    
    -  Remember the "Law of Conservation of Ammunition".  If you hold you finger on
       the trigger, you will burn through your ammunition very quickly and usually
       without the desired results.  This could result in being put into a very bad
       situation without any ammunition.  Worse, it could mean having to land at an
       airfield to reload.  Some missions are tightly timed so you may not have the
       chance to reload.  Also, use your secondary ammunition sparingly since you
       have a very limited amount.  Even getting the double ammunition upgrades
       doesn't mean you have infinite ammunition.
    
    -  When shooting or bombing a target, remember to "lead" the target.  Leading
       is when your shots will be at the same point as your target (which is moving
       toward them).  If you fire straight, then you will be firing at the point
       where the target has been, not where it will be.  The same applies to
       bombing except you also must account for your movement.
    
    -  When you are badly shot up or you need to reload your ammunition, make sure
       you make a quick journey to your airfield.  Also ensure that  there are no
       timed events and you don't have too many enemy aircraft following you or you
       will have a bad reception as you take off again.

    | 10.  SPECIFIC STRATEGIES FOR CAMPAIGNS AND CHALLENGES |======================
    +=======================================================+
    
    These strategies not only cover the 15 campaign missions, but they also cover
    the challenges (if any) contained within each of these campaign missions.  It
    is not necessary to complete these challenges to finish the game; however, if
    you want more requisitions and possibly new planes, then finishing all of the
    challenges is a must.
    
    In addition, you only need to complete the primary objectives in order to
    successfully complete a campaign mission or challenge.  Of course, the same
    rule applies as it did for the above, you will lose out on more requisitions
    and new planes if you only do the primary objectives.
    
    In addition, completing all objectives can be rewarded with medals and/or
    promotions.
    
    Remember, once you finish all the primary objectives, the mission ends
    regardless of whether you have completed the secondary or bonus objectives.
    This is why you should leave one primary objective (or the only one if
    singular) until you have completed all the other objectives.
    
    It's usually better to finish the Challenges before going into the main
    mission.  The reasons are several but include possibly gaining a better air-
    craft, requisitions, and most of all...experience.  You start the game with the
    Hawker Hurricane Mk. I.
    
    The Missions and Challenges will be set up like this:

    Date of Mission:  May 26, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Stop the JU87 Stukas from destroying the transports
                           2.  Destroy the Bf-109s
                           3.  Protect the defensive lines

    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  Destroy recon group
                          2.  Destroy recon group 2
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  5
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  Junkers Ju-87 B-1 and Curtiss P-40F Warhawk
    
    This mission is broken up into two parts.  The first part has you primarily
    dealing with air targets while the second part has you mainly dealing with
    ground targets.
    
    -  After the cut scene, press the X button to determine where the Stukas are
       coming from.  Hover over the fleet and climb.  Wait until the Stukas are
       within 5,000 feet before going after them.
    
    -  You should be able to clear out the first wave on one pass if you drop your
       airspeed to the bottom.  Just watch out for defensive fire and be aware that
       the Stukas will attempt to twist and turn out of your sights.
    
    -  Between the two waves of Stukas, deal with the Bf-109's.  Also be wary of
       them as you go after the Stukas.  If you do it right, you can clear out the
       Bf-109s.  If not, wait until after the Stukas to deal with them.
       (Pri Obj 2).
    
    -  After you have cleared out the Stukas, you will go back to base to rearm
       with bombs.  (Pri Obj 1).
    
    -  The next part has you flying over the French countryside.  Your job is to
       neutralize two bridges to prevent the Germans from getting a foothold.  As
       soon as the cut scene ends, head toward the East Bridge.
    
    -  Use the SQUARE button to target ground targets.  You should see the Recon
       cars coming down the road.  Throttle back and when you get within 1,600
       feet, open fire.  If you do this right, you can clear out all the cars in a
       single pass.  (Bon Obj 1).
    
    -  Go over to the bridge and drop two bombs.  This will take care of the bridge
       and the Panzers that are on it.  Continue past and plaster the two AA guns
       on the other bank.
    
    -  Turn around and head toward the West Bridge at maximum speed.  Veer to the
       right and head for the village of Dunkirk since there are three more Recon
       cars lurking there.
    
    -  Go and clear out those cars in Dunkirk.  It may take a couple of passes
       since they are close to the town.  (Bon Obj 2).
    
    -  Continue toward the West Bridge.  On your way, help the British 25 pounder
       crew by blasting the three Panzer III's in front of them.
    
    -  Go past the West Bridge and plaster the AA guns on the far hillside.  This
       takes care of all the AA guns.  (Sec Obj 1).
    
    -  Turn around and drop the West Bridge with a couple of bombs.  This will take
       care of all the German armor on the bridge.  Pick off any stragglers that
       made it off the bridge.  (Pri Obj 3).
    
    -  After dropping the West Bridge, a cut scene announces that Nemesis is on the
       scene.  Keep in mind that the Nemesis pilots are more skilled then their
       "regular" pilot brethren.  Use X to identify which plane is Krieger's and go
       after him.
    
    -  It will take a few more hits then the normal Bf-109 to bring down Krieger.
       Before going after Krieger, take care of the other Nemesis Bf-109'2.
       (Sec Obj 2).
    
    -  Once you have cleared out the other Bf-109's, clean Krieger's clock.
       (Pri Obj 4)

    Date of Mission:  May 16, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Destroy balloons over airfield
                           2.  Land at airfield
                           3.  Destroy Stuka
                           4.  Destroy three Stukas
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  None
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  Destroy all balloons in under two and a half minutes
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  3
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    This part teaches you the basics of shooting.  You just need to shoot down the
    air raid blimps in some semblance of order to beat the time requirement.  You
    will then learn how to land your fighter.  You will then take to the air and
    take down a crippled Stuka, then take out three more that appear on the
    horizon.
    
    +---------------------------+
    | 10.1.3  Bombing Challenge |
    +---------------------------+
    
    Date of Mission:  May 18, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Destroy all ammo dumps
                           2.  Destroy all recon cars
                           3.  Destroy all AA guns
                           4.  Destroy all tanks
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  None
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  None
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  3
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    Here you get to drop bombs on wooden targets.  This teaches you to use your
    bombing view (press the TRIANGLE button).  After you have landed and taken off
    again, you get to practice your gunnery and bombing skills against some recon
    cars, AA guns, and tanks.  Be wary around the AA guns since they can do some
    big damage if you aren't careful.

    Date of Mission:  May 20, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Issue all wingman commands to Dadigan in the correct
                               order
                           2.  Destroy all Ju87s
                           3.  Destroy all Bf 110s
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  None
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  Trevor isn't shot down
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  3
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    You learn your wingman commands here.  You will also be able to cut your teeth
    on some Ju-87's and Bf-110's so let your wingman roam at will to chew them up.

    Things start to heat up in this mission.  You will be operating an AA gun and
    then you will take to the skies to deal with the German bombers and fighters.
    This time, you will have to learn to bounce from place to place to make sure
    you can prevent as much damage as possible.

    Total Requisitions Possible:  5
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  Ju-88 A-4
    
    /========\
    | PART 1 |
    \========/
    
    You get to sit behind an anti-aircraft gun and blast at the German planes that
    are attacking your airfield.
    
    -  The primary planes you want to go after are the Ju-87's and Bf-110's since
       these can do the most damage to both the hangers and to your gun position.
    
    -  When you start this part of the mission, cycle through the targets (using
       the X button) until you get to either the Ju-87's or Bf-110's and start
       hammering away.  Go after the closest aircraft first.
    
    -  If the Bf-109's or Bf-110's decide to make a strafing run on your position,
       disengage from whatever you were doing and take care of them because they
       can do some heavy damage to your anti-aircraft gun.
    
    -  This will go on for several waves of German aircraft.  After it is over, you
       head to your plane to continue the fight. (Pri Obj 1 and Bon Obj 1).
    
    /========\
    | PART 2 |
    \========/
    
    -  You start by being faced by three Heinkel He-111 medium bombers.  They are
       relatively close so attempt to shoot them down as quickly as possible.
    
    -  You are then ordered to go after the Ju-87's while the others handle the
       next flight of He-111's.  Head as quickly as you can toward New Romney to
       take care of the waves of Stuka's that appear.
    
    -  Be wary of the Bf-109's that may appear.  Take shots at them only if it
       doesn't interfere with your primary concern of bringing down the Stuka's.
    
    -  A squadron of three Ju-88's will appear and head toward the radar stations.
       Speed over as fast as you can and bring them down.  For medium bombers, they
       can take quite a pounding so be persistent and make your shots count.
    
    -  Once you have cleared all the Ju-87's and Ju-88's out, finish off the rest
       of the Bf-109's to end the mission.  (Pri Obj 2-4) (Sec Obj 1 & 2)
       (Bon Obj 2 & 3).
    
    +----------------------------+
    | 10.2.2  Dogfight Challenge |
    +----------------------------+
    
    Date of Mission:  August 13, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Defeat Trevor twice
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  None
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  None
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  2
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  Supermarine Spitfire Mk. V
    
    This is your basic one-on-one dogfight.  You each have 100 possible hits on
    your planes and the first person to drop their opponents counter to zero wins
    the match.  You must take Trevor "down" twice to get his plane.  Just remember
    tight turns and you will constantly have him in your sights.  Head-on tends to
    work also.  (Pri Obj 1).
    
     ___________________
    /  10.3  Mission 3 /___________________________________________________________
    -------------------
    
    You get to do a little clandestine work in this mission.  You will fly in with
    a captured enemy plane and attempt to cause as much confusion and destruction
    as possible.

    | 10.3.1  Sea Lion |
    +------------------+
    
    Date of Mission:  September 28, 1940
    
    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Destroy all landing craft
                           2.  Capture the reserve airfield
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  1.  Destroy the fighter hanger
                             2.  Destroy the bomber hanger
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  At least one UK destroyer survives
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  5
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  Bf-109 E-1, Fairey Swordfish Mk. I
    
    Well, it seems that one of the Ju-88's has crash landed and the technicians
    were able to make it airworthy again.  It seems like the perfect cover for
    going into enemy territory and guess who is going to be flying it.
    
    -  You start this mission by being in a formation of Ju-88's with Bf-109
       escorts.  They had given "you" up for dead but they are glad you are not.
       During this first part, just fly in formation and don't look suspicious.
    
    -  Soon the coastline will come into view.  Remember, you are flying at night
       so you don't have the range of vision you would have during the day.  As
       you approach the coastline, you will see the landing barges at the pier.
    
    -  The Bf-109's will announce they are leaving from their escort duty as the
       Ju-88's start their landing approach.  Your approach will carry you over
       the landing barges.
    
    -  As soon as the first barge comes into view, change to bombing view (press
       the TRIANGLE) and start your run.  Try to hit as many barges on this pass as
       possible since the Germans will go on alert.
    
    -  As soon as you let loose, the alarm is sounded and the Germans start firing
       at everything (including their own planes).  After you make your pass, head
       immediately to the reserve airfield and take out the gun towers so the
       partisans can capture the field.  After a few seconds, Cedric will call to
       inform you the airfield is ready for business.  (Pri Obj 2)
    
    -  While you are waiting for Cedric and his friends, you can head over to the
       bomber airfield.  Watch out for the AA fire and drop a couple of bombs on
       the hangers to stop any bombing attacks.  In addition, you can strafe the
       bombers already on the runway.  (Sec Obj 2)
    
    -  By this time, you are probably getting badly shot up.  If not, you can
       tangle with the closest Bf-109's and perhaps even down a couple.  Do not
       head back toward the landing craft or you may not make it to the reserve
       airfield.
    
    -  Once it is secured and your Ju-88 looks like Swiss Cheese, land and get a
       Bf-109 and load up some bombs.  You will just have enough time to take out
       the fighter airfield to stop the flow of fighters.  Again, watch out for
       the AA fire.  (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  Try to take care of any Bf-109's in your path to make your life easier.
       Once you are over water again, make a pass over the landing craft and sink
       as many as you can.  If you don't sink them all, home in on the German
       destroyer bearing down on the British fleet.
    
    -  Turn and take out any landing craft still afloat after the barrage by both
       the British fleet and yourself.  The mission ends with the last craft
       sinking.  (Pri Obj 1)

    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  Sink German U-boat before it goes to sea
    
    Total Requisitions Possible:  3
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    -  You will be given wooden targets with bulls-eyes on them.  Your job is to
       hit each target in turn.  It is best to go at medium speed and don't miss
       a target or you won't be able to finish in under four minutes.  (Pri Obj 1)
       (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  When you hear about the German U-boat, high tail it over and drop a couple
       of bombs on it.  It will take it two-three to put it under the waves.  If
       you didn't miss with your other bombs, you should have enough.  (Bon Obj 1)

    -  This is a contest between the Battlehawks and the Eagles to see who can send
       the most planes down.   Just remember your lessons in dogfighting and you
       should have no trouble taking home the prize.  (Pri Obj 1).

    You start by sinking ships and end this mission by escorting Pauline's plane
    out of Africa.  Talk about being well-rounded.
    
    /========\
    | Part 1 |
    \========/
    
    You are armed with your trusty Swordfish, it's time to sink some ships.
    Remember, don't sink the White Rose's freighter.  It is plainly marked.
    
    -  The convoy comes in two lines.  If you can time your approach right, you can
       "walk" one line with torpedoes, go back and rearm, and "walk" the other
       line.  This will take some practice since you will have to speed up and slow
       down (in addition to avoiding the AA fire).
    
    -  There is a time limit but you should be able to make it if you get good hits
       on the first go around.  (Pri Obj 1) (Sec Obj 1)
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========/
    
    Now you are in a better plane to destroy ground targets and dogfight with.  You
    need to clear a path for the White Rose to follow.
    
    -  Use the SQUARE button to identify your ground targets and let loose.  You
       will have to take out three checkpoints.  If you can time your bombs right
       and put them in the middle of the two towers and tanks, it should only take
       two bombs.
    
    -  Do this with the other two roadblocks and then go after the recon cars with
       gunfire to take them out.  If you are quick enough, this will give you time
       to head to the fighter airfield.  (Pri Obj 3)
    
    -  Don't think the Germans are sleeping.  Bf-109's will try to divert you from
       the airfield.  Knock them down and place a couple of bombs into the hangers.
       While you are at it, take out the Ju-88's on the runway and ones that are
       taking off to finish the job.  Watch out for the AA fire.  (Bon Obj 1 & 2)
    
    -  By this time, the White Rose should be at an airfield and readying the C-47
       to escape.  (Pri Obj 2)
    
    /========\
    | Part 3 |
    \========/
    
    This is just an escort mission.  Keep close to Pauline's plane and take out any
    German fighters that want to stray too close to your guns.  Have your wingman
    Target at Will to splash any other German fighters.  (Pri Obj 4)

    This will be one of your harder challenges.  The Swordfish is slow and
    lightly armored.  It is ideal against ships but lousy in protecting itself
    from enemy fighters.  This also teaches you about how to use torpedoes.  For
    the torpedoes to be effective, you must be flying less then 150 mph and must be
    150 feet or less from the surface of the water.
    
    -  Go after the closest U-boats and drop your torpedoes.  These targets are
       moving so they should make easy targets.
    
    -  Next some U-boats will surface, rush over and take care of them.  By this
       time, you probably need to reload.  After you reload, three patrol craft
       head toward the airfield.  Sink them with gunfire and resume going after the
       U-boats.
    
    -  For the U-boats in the pens, they are not only guarded by the AA fire from
       the U-boats, but also by shore based AA guns.  You may have to go to your
       airfield a couple of times due to being shot up.
    
    -  If you take too long sinking the U-boats, Bf-109's come around to make your
       life miserable.  In addition, a convoy of trucks may come to take the air-
       field.  Use your slow speed to your advantage since you can out-turn the
       Bf-109's.  Persistence will pay off.
    
    -  Sink the remaining U-boats to win the challenge.  (Pri Obj 1)

    You will be in the fighter of your choice to take care of the German air and
    sea units that are trying to kill or capture your pilots.  Your job is to fly
    top cover and prevent either of these from getting to your downed pilots
    before they are rescued.  This means you not only shooting down planes, but
    also sinking German ships to accomplish this challenge.  (Pri Obj 1)

    Things start to heat up in this mission.  You will be operating an AA gun and
    then you will take to the skies to deal with the German bombers and fighters.
    This time, you will have to learn to bounce from place to place to make sure
    you can prevent as much damage as possible.

    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    There are quite a few objectives to achieve on this mission.  In addition,
    you may be heading back to the airfield a couple of times for reloads since
    this is a target rich environment.  The 37mm cannon makes a great choice for
    taking out those pesky ground targets (and air targets also but ammo is
    limited).
    
    -  Before going after the crates, it's time to do some good old-fashioned
       dog fighting.  It's time to clear the road.  Although the Zeke's are faster,
       you can slow down and out turn them and let loose since the Zeke's aren't
       as heavily armored.
    
    -  Work your way toward their airfield and take out their hanger.  If you
       don't, Zeke's will constantly harass you.  After you clear the skies of
       Japanese planes, it's time to get to work on those crates.  (Pri Obj 2)
       (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  Each set of crates has some freighters and destroyers guarding them.  There
       are three sets of crates in all.  In addition, there are trucks also moving
       around the three areas.  Use the SQUARE button to target the trucks and take
       them out.  Two sets are on the roads while the third set is on the dock.
       (Sec Obj 3)
    
    -  On the dock that has the trucks parked on it, take out the gun towers and AA
       pits.  Then use your 37mm cannon to make short work of the destroyers and
       freighters.  Finish the job by destroying the crates.
    
    -  You may want to reload before going after the other two sets of crates.
       Follow the same pattern of taking out the gun towers and AA pits,
       destroyers, freighters, then the crates.  (Pri Obj 1) (Sec Obj 1 & 2)
    
    -  For the grand finale, Bf-109's will appear on the horizon.  Flame them to
       end the mission.  Of course, a couple of your pilots were shot down and
       captured.  (Pri Obj 3)

    Seems that a U.S. destroyer group is coming home after making a delivery.  Your
    job will be to make sure that the Japanese Zero's don't do any harm to the
    destroyers.  Of course, the Tigers are also there to ensure the same thing.  It
    is a contest of who can make the most kills while achieving the Primary
    Objective.  (Pri Obj 1) (Bon Obj 1)

                                 the airfield and fly it to unlock it)
    
    There are a lot of things to do in this mission.  You can, however, take care
    of a big majority of things before you let the POW's loose.
    
    /========\
    | Part 1 |
    \========/
    
    -  You will first have to clear out the air space.  This means tangling with
       more Zekes.  Make short work of them and turn toward the structure along the
       road from the POW camp to the Japanese airfield.
    
    -  Take down the structure and the alarms at the camp will sound.  By this
       time, the other pilots are busy working over the gun towers so it is no
       secret you're in the area anymore.
    
    -  You will see two truck head down the road toward the airfield.  Slow down
       and strafe the trucks to prevent the pilots from reaching the airfield.
       (Sec Obj 2)
    
    -  Head to the airfield.  DO NOT destroy the hanger or you will fail the
       mission.  Instead, destroy all of the planes on the runway.  Then go after
       the gun towers and AA pits to prevent any surprise AA.
    
    -  Use the SQUARE button and you will notice that a listening post is off in
       the distance.  Throttle to full and go after it.  Destroying it will prevent
       most intervention from the Japanese.
    
    -  Now head for the POW camp.  Before you knock the gate down, finish off any
       gun towers the others left behind.  Then level the POW camp HQ.  (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  When you have cleared everything out, blow the gate open.
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========/
    
    This part has you guarding Pauline and the rest of the POW's.
    
    -  This opens up with more Zekes appearing to stop the POW truck.  Knock down
       a couple of the Zekes and quickly head to the Japanese destroyers.
       (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  There are three Japanese destroyers to tangle with but if you fly in low
       and somewhat fast, you should be able to take them all down and turn toward
       the POW truck again.
    
    -  Quickly speed over and take care of any remaining Zekes still harassing the
       truck.  The truck will make it to the airfield and basically capture it.
       This means if you land, you can use a nice, shiny Zeke.  (Pri Obj 3)
    
    -  When Pauline goes airborne, Nemesis FW-190's appear in the distance.  Take
       out all the others before Krieger's or Pauline won't have a chance.  Once
       you have cleared the skies, the mission is over.  (Pri Obj 1 & 4)

    pack a little more of a punch.  In addition, it has a higher speed.  Other
    then that, you can still be a sitting duck against enemy aircraft and AA fire.
    
    -  To get all objectives, go after the escorts first.  You will have enough
       time.  Fly low to avoid the AA fire and sink the destroyers.  Then turn and
       go after the patrol boats.

    This mission will be your longest one yet.  You, in essence, will play through
    the entire battle of Midway.  It is in four parts so you will have a break
    between each part.
    
    /========\
    | Part 1 |
    \========/
    
    The Americans are going in to draw first blood.  They have launched torpedo
    planes and dive-bombers to take out the Imperial fleet.  Your job is to protect
    these air groups (if possible).
    
    -  You start off flying high and behind the torpedo bombers.  Several Japanese
       planes are flying low to intercept them.  Try to splash as many Zeros as
       possible but don't get too entangled with them.  If you can shoot down four
       or five, you will have some extra time.
    
    -  Use this extra time to head for the Akagi and use the X button to target the
       planes still on the flight deck.  While the other planes are tangling with
       the airborne Zeros, you should be able to make a slow pass and burn most of
       the Zeros on the deck.  If not, go for another pass and finish the job.
    
    -  Head toward the Kaga.  By this time, the dive-bombers will appear and the
       Kaga will be launching.  If you have timed it right, you can shoot down the
       Zeros as they leave the flight deck of the Kaga and still strafe and take
       out the others.  This will make your life in the air that much easier.
    
    -  Go toward the dive-bombers and clear out any other Zekes that are
       threatening them.  If you have done this right, a cut scene will show the
       dive-bombers dropping on the Japanese carriers.  (Pri Obj 1 & Sec Obj 1)
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========?
    
    Seems that you sank three carriers but there is a fourth lurking around.  It
    has launched an all-out attack against the Yorktown.  Your job is to intercept
    all the planes and prevent them from damaging the fleet.
    
    -  This part of the mission will require you to "swoop" at the Japanese planes.
       You start off by intercepting a group of Japanese Val dive-bombers.  After
       you splash them, a group of Japanese Kate torpedo planes come in low and
       fast.
    
    -  You will have to adjust your altitude constantly which means gunning the
       throttle to climb quickly to intercept the waves of Vals and swooping down
       on the Kates.  In essence, you will be constantly be going back and forth
       between high and low altitude.
    
    -  Don't worry too much about the Zekes unless they get in you gunsights, your
       primary mission is to take out the planes that can damage or sink your
       ships.
    
    -  You will alternate between the Vals and Kates before you can finally breathe
       a sigh of relief.  (Pri Obj 2) (Sec Obj 2) (Bon Obj 1)
    
    /========\
    | Part 3 |
    \========/
    
    It isn't over yet.  While your plane is busy being refueled and rearmed,
    another wave of Japanese planes comes in.  This time, you will have to man an
    AA gun to ward off the attack.
    
    -  Again, your primary targets should be the Vals and Kates since they will do
       the most damage.  Cycle through the targets using the X button to find the
       closest planes.
    
    -  If the planes get out of AA gun range, manually switch targets to the next
       group.  You will have to go through several waves of Vals and Kates to end
       this part of the mission.  (Pri Obj 3) (Sec Obj 3)
    
    /========\
    | Part 4 |
    \========/
    
    Seems it's payback time.  It's your turn to go after the Hiryu and finish the
    job.  You will be in a Dauntless instead of a Wildcat for this mission.
    Although it is armored, it doesn't have a lot of firepower so let your fighters
    take care of the Japanese fighters while you take care of the ship.
    
    -  Gun the engine and head for the carrier.  Take a shot at the Zekes if they
       get in your gunsights but don't dogfight with them.
    
    -  When you get close to the Hiryu, the destroyers will throw up a wall of AA
       fire.  If you are quick, you can place two bombs on a destroyer to sink it.
       (Bon Obj 2)
    
    -  It will take four hits on the Hiryu to sink it.  If you line up along the
       carrier lengthwise, you can fly along and drop your four bombs effectively
       putting it under the water.  Again, watch out for the AA fire.  (Pri Obj 4)

    The Japanese Betty is a medium bomber capable of delivering a pretty
    devastating punch.  Your primary goal is to prevent the Betty's from
    hitting the U.S. destroyers.
    
    -  The round opens with Zekes coming in to clear the skies.  Oblige them and
       clear them out instead.  If no Bettys appear on the horizon, go ahead and
       knock out the Japanese destroyers.  This will make hunting the freighter
       easier.
    
    -  If the Bettys do appear, concentrate on taking out each wave.  After you
       clear them out, you can concentrate on sinking the freighter.

    -  Turn right and head up the road to take care of the recon car, panzers, and
       gun towers in front of the tunnel entrance.  If you are quick enough, you
       can take care of another recon car about 5,000 feet away.
    
    -  A couple of German fighters make their appearance.  Quickly dispatch them
       and head for the other side of the tunnel.  By this time, Dr. Bohr will tell
       you he is heading into the tunnel.
    
    -  Go over the top and take out the recon car and three tanks.  Continue up the
       road to take care of another recon car and a couple more tanks.  (Bon Obj 2)
    
    -  Head toward the town and take out the gun towers.  Go along the bridge and
       head over to the town.  Take out the gun towers then take out the tanks in
       the town.  You should get word about a train.  Head over to it and take it
       out.  (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  Go out to the docks and sink the two destroyers.  By now, you should be low
       on ammo so restock while Dr. Bohr is still heading for the town.  After he
       gets through the town, the next part starts.
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========/
    
    This part will be escorting Dr. Bohr's boat to a place of safety.  Many dangers
    lurk on, below, and above the water.
    
    -  If you didn't take out the destroyers in Part 1, now you will have to do it.
       If you did take them out, gun the engine and head for the Nemesis airfield.
       If you time it right, you will get one chance to take out the three AA gun
       pits.
    
    -  If you aren't quick enough, a cut scene shows a couple of U-boats surfacing.
       You are placed right behind Dr. Bohr's boat.  Target and destroy the
       U-boats.  FW-190's will appear in the distance.  Quickly dispatch them and
       take out the Nemesis airfield defenses.
    
    -  Quickly turn around and speed up.  Some FW-190's are harassing Dr. Bohr.
       Use extreme prejudice and shoot them out of the air.  Once they are cleared
       out, you are informed that the Nemesis airfield is ready for operations for
       you.  (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  Follow the island around and you will see two destroyers lurking.  Sink them
       and quickly turn back toward Dr. Bohr's boat.  (Sec Obj 2)
    
    -  Two U-boats will start to surface in the area of Dr. Bohr's boat.  Quickly
       go in and pound them below the waves.  (Sec Obj 3)
    
    -  After you have cleared out the U-boats, Dr. Bohr arrives safely in port.

    You have a limited amount of U-boats in this challenge.  There are nine so you
    must get five or more to win.  In addition, sinking all the patrol boats gives
    you the bonus.
    
    -  Use your bombs on the U-boats and quickly go from one to the other.  Use
       your guns on the patrol boats and don't worry too much about the destroyers
       unless they are in your way.
    
    -  Toomey is good so you have to be quick in sinking the U-boats.  Don't worry
       too much about the patrol boats until the second part when you have to deal
       with the fighters.  (Pri Obj 1 & 2) (Bon Obj 1)

    The big turning point on the Eastern Front.  The Russians basically let the
    Germans overextend themselves, then sprang their trap on the city of
    Stalingrad; in effect trapping an entire German army.  The Germans attempted to
    mount relief operations but they all failed.  It is your job to support the
    Russian offensive to push the Germans back even farther.

    You will be in another target rich environment as you blast both ground and air
    targets at will.
    
    -  Your first job is to crack the German defensive line.  Go after all the
       ground targets in front of you.  It may take a couple of passes but leave
       everything burning.
    
    -  Now turn and go to the next line and do the same thing.  By this time, the
       Germans have sent up a squadron of Bf-110's and Ju-87's to deal with the
       Russian threat.  Disengage from the ground targets and take care of the air
       targets.
    
    -  When you have cleared out the aircraft threat, take care of any remaining
       ground targets and head for the German base.
    
    -  Let loose on the AA guns and airfield.  If you are quick enough, you can
       catch many of the planes taxiing down the runway.  Also take out the
       hangers.
    
    -  You will have heard about a supply train earlier.  Now is the time to let
       loose on it and destroy it.  (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  More Ju-87's will be airborne and headed for the Russian column.  Turn and
       burn toward them before they can do any damage.  After they are dealt with,
       head back to the base and clear out the last of the AA guns and any other
       ground targets of opportunity.  (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  After the Russians make it to the base, a cut scene will show the Ju-390
       taking off.  Go after it and unload everything you have into it to bring it
       down.  Once it is down, the mission is over.  (Pri Obj 1 & 2)

    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    It's time to find out what Nemesis is up to.  You will need to go in low and
    deal a severely devastating ground attack.  In addition, you may have to fend
    off enemy fighters.
    
    -  Go low and follow the road.  Take out any Sdkfz trucks that happen to be in
       your way.  You should be at the airstrip.
    
    -  You will see a few Bf-110's warming up and getting ready for takeoff.  Let
       loose with your guns and destroy them before they get off the runway.
       (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  In order to destroy the Ju-390's located in the hangers, you must first
       blast open the hanger doors.  This isn't as easy as it sounds because there
       are a lot of AA pits and vehicles to give you trouble.  In addition,
       Bf-109's are scrambled to make your life even more miserable.
    
    -  Blow open the first door and destroy the Ju-390.  Bf-109's will appear to
       defend the base.  Shoot them down quickly and you will then get word about
       a supply train heading your way.
    
    -  Take out the supply train and deal with any Bf-109's still buzzing around.
       Once you have taken care of them, continue your work on the Ju-390's.
       (Sec Obj 2)
    
    -  After you take out the last Ju-390, Nemesis Bf-109's will show up.  Show
       them the way back to the ground and go toward the factory.  (Pri Obj 1)
       (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  Take out the fuel tanks next to the factory to level it and end the mission.

    This mission will test your skills as a pilot.  You will be flying through the
    fjords of Norway, deep canyons that leave little maneuvering room.
    
    -  Your first objective is to take out all the AA guns.  If other targets
       present themselves, take them out as well.
    
    -  Fly slowly along the canyon walls to make sure you have taken all the guns
       out.  Some of the AA guns are hiding behind rock outcroppings.
    
    -  Once you have taken care of all the AA guns, a squadron of FW-190's will
       come in to take care of the problem.  If you use the canyon walls right, you
       can cause the FW-190's to crash into them without firing a shot.  Also
       engage all water and land targets.  (Pri Obj 1)
    
    -  The commandos have opened the way to the generator by now.  Come in low and
       drop your load (you can also use cannon fire) to destroy the generator.
       Once that is taken out, the commandos can destroy the rest of the plant.
       (Pri Obj 2 & 3)
    
    -  Clear a path for the commandos by taking out the rest of the ground and
       water targets.  (Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  You are soon jumped by a squadron of Me-262's.  These German jets come in
       fast and they pack a hard punch.  This is also their weakness, though, since
       they are going so fast, they only have time to make one pass.  If you slow
       your plane down, you can turn inside them and blast away.
    
    -  Your main objective, though, is to take out the patrol boats and ferries
       carrying the heavy water (which managed to be extracted from the plant).
       There are four ferries you must sink.  If you blast a couple, you can deal
       with the Me-262 problem and take them all out as well.  (Sec Obj 2)
       (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  Once you have sank all the ferrys, the mission is over.  (Pri Obj 4)

    Seems there might be some more information contained on in the wreckage of the

    there is any other information.  Your primary job is to make sure that Pauline
    and her commandos survive this infiltration.
    
    -  You will encounter a squadron of FW-190's.  When they attempt to identify
       you, shoot them down as confirmation.  Protect Pauline's plane until it gets
       into the hanger.
    
    -  Go after the He-111's and Ju-87's since they can make short work of the
       plane and hanger.  If you do it quickly enough, you can scour the perimeter
       and shoot up the four Kubelwagens.
    
    -  A flight of Bf-110's will appear to finish (or start) the job.  Take them
       down and Pauline will take off again with the new information.  (Pri Obj 1)

    Since you are riding along as a "passenger", they have assigned you to the ball
    turret.  Your job is to shoot down the German fighters before they can shoot
    you down.
    
    -  A squadron of Bf-109's will make their attacks.  They soon will break off
       and be replaced by a squadron of FW-190's.
    
    -  After you have punished them sufficiently, Me-262's will come after the
       bomber stream.  Deal with them the same way.
    
    -  After you have cleared out the fighters, you will be parachuted to the
       Me-262 base below.  (Pri Obj 1) (Sec Obj 1)
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========/
    
    You have made it to the base and "borrowed" one of their Me-262's.  You are now
    a jet pilot and it's time to extract some payback.
    
    -  Ignore the airborne Me-262's and take out the three going down the runway.
       Turn down the runway and you will see the remaining hanger.  Let loose on it
       to take it to the ground.  (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  Now it's time to turn on the afterburners and meet up with the B-17's.
       Don't go after German fighters not directly attacking the B-17's or they
       will take you too far away to be effective.
    
    -  It's best to target the German fighters near the B-17's.  The Me-262 has
       some devastating firepower and it only takes a few shots to bring an enemy
       plane down.  Just be sure to work the throttle since you can outrun most
       German planes.
    
    -  Continue doing this and you will have the skies cleared in no time.

    This basically involves shooting and destroying as many ground targets as you
    can.  Don't worry about the plane since the investment to shoot it down isn't
    worth the time gained.  The basic premise of this challenge is that everything
    you destroy adds time to the clock while everything Cedric destroys subtracts
    time.  You start with 1:30 on the clock and you need to destroy everything you
    can.  It is possible to destroy so much that you can have well over a minute

    You get to become educated in the ways of taking out advanced research.  It
    won't be easy, though, since the Germans will fanatically guard this area.
    
    -  You will see a cut scene showing a new kind of missile.  You guide it to the
       target then drop it into the water as a torpedo.  This enables you to hit
       ships at great distances.
    
    -  You will see a destroyer escorting one of the research ships.  Launch your
       missile at the research ship and drop it into the water to put it under.
       Unfortunately, the other two ships have been locked up in their pens.
    
    -  Launch another missile and look for the ships reflection on the water.  Use
       that as an aiming point to drop the rocket into the water to go under the
       door to sink the ship.  Repeat with the other ship.  (Pri Obj 1)
    
    -  Now it's time to work on the ground targets.  Ignore the missiles right now
       and head toward the airfield.  A squadron of Me-262's and Me-163's will take
       to the air.  The Me-163 is quicker but it also has a limited range.  Your
       cover fighters should be able to deal with them.  They may appear before you
       take out all the research vessels.
    
    -  A convoy of trucks will head away from the research area.  Go in low and
       take out the convoy to prevent them from escaping.  (Bon Obj 2)
    
    -  After you have dealt with the fighters, it is now time to take care of the
       research labs.  You may have to reload your ammo.  (Sec Obj 1 & 2)

    -  Fly in low toward the POW camp.  Take out the guard towers and all the AA
       pits and Sdkfz AA vehicles hovering around.  Once you have done this, you
       will be told about a train heading your way.  (Pri Obj 2)

    Primary Objective(s):  1.  Destroy Nemesis hangers
                           2.  Destroy Vengeance Weapon factory
    
    Secondary Objective(s):  1.  Shoot down all Me-262s and Me-163s
                             2.  Destroy all Wasserfall launchers
    
    Bonus Objectives(s):  1.  Destroy Ju-88 hangers

    Total Requisitions Possible:  6
    
    Aircraft Unlocked (if any):  None
    
    This is a night mission so targets will be a little hard to see so use your
    target lock liberally.
    
    -  First head toward the Nemesis hangers.  If you come in low and fast, you can
       get the jump on them before they can scramble many planes.  Some Ju-88's
       will try to intercept you.  Take them down on your way to the Nemesis
       hangers.  (Bon Obj 2)
    
    -  When you get to the Nemesis hangers, let loose and destroy them.  You will
       then be met by a reception committee of Me-262's and Me-163's.  You know
       what you have to do.  (Pri Obj 1) ( Sec Obj 1)
    
    -  You are informed that the factory isn't opened yet so go to the Ju-88
       hangers and take them down the same way, then start looking for the
       Wasserfall launchers.  (Bon Obj 1)
    
    -  The rockets launched can be very deadly to your fighter.  Because they are
       guided makes them even more deadly.  If one is launched at you, you will be
       warned.  Take immediate evasive action since one hit can bring you down.
       Hunt down each of the launchers while avoiding the rockets.  (Sec Obj 2)
    
    -  When the train enters the factory, all the doors are open.  Fly low and slow
       and you will see a white tank toward the inside, far wall at each open door.
       Launch a missile to take out said tank.  Blast all four tanks to level the
       factory and end the mission.

    Seems that you need to protect intelligence agents going through the wreckage
    of your "handiwork" at the rocket site.  Of course, the Germans are trying to
    make sure they don't make it out alive with that information.
    
    -  This is your basic shoot at everything that isn't friendly.  There are
       enough air and ground targets available so that you can outscore Lilia.  You
       have to be quick, though, since she is an excellent shot and nothing
       survives that is in her sites.
    
    -  In addition to air targets, ground targets are also a great way of racking
       up the points.  Clear out all targets and the HMS Stygian will escape.

    This is probably the hardest mission you have.  There are a lot of targets
    spread out quite a ways.  You need a fast fighter packing a lot of firepower
    to get through this mission.
    
    /========\
    | Part 1 |
    \========/
    
    You will be headed for the coast to deal with the V-1 and V-2 threat.  Timing
    is critical on this part since you have very little margin for error when
    taking out the V-2's before they launch.  Make your shots count and don't hover
    over a site too long.
    
    -  Head to the South Launch Site and target a V-2.  Turn right so that it is to
       your left.  Turn up the throttle and when the distance is 4,000 feet, slow
       down and turn toward the site.  You should be lined up to do a strafing run.
    
    -  Knock out the V-2 in front of you, then hit the V-1 launchers behind.  If
       one launches, quickly take it out then take care of the other two V-2's.
       Head toward the Central Launch Site.
    
    -  There are four V-2 rockets to deal with here.  Do the same as you did on the
       South site.  Target a V-2 and come in gunning.  Again, take out any V-1's
       that launch.  You may have to make a second pass to take out the V-2's.
       Once they are destroyed, head to the North Launch Site.
    
    -  The last five V-2 rockets are here.  Do the same as for the above two launch
       sites and you should have no trouble meeting the objectives.  (Pri Obj 1)
       (Sec Obj 1) (Bon Obj 1)
    
    /========\
    | Part 2 |
    \========/
    
    For this part, you must defend the landing craft against attack.
    
    -  You will encounter a new weapon in the Luftwaffe's arsenal:  The Mistal.
       Mistals are basically Ju-88's loaded with explosives that are guided to
       their targets by the FW-190's that are carrying them.  One hit can put a
       landing craft under.
    
    -  Your first job is to destroy the Mistals.  The first wave comes straight at
       you.  Keep in mind that once they are detached, the FW-190's will probably
       cause you problems.
    
    -  Target the next group and take them down.  Keep doing this and also fly
       along the beach and over the landing craft to make sure nothing has slipped
       through your defenses.  Once you have downed all the Mistals and FW-190's,
       this part ends.  (Pri Obj 2) (Sec Obj 2)

    It appears that Krieger has a new toy and he is anxious to share it with you.
    It is the Daimler Benz C.  On its underside, it carries six Heinkel He-P107 8a
    jet fighters.  These are more advanced and deadlier then the Me-262.  It is
    your job to bring this monstrosity down.  Rockets work best on this plane.
    
    When you bring the Daimler Benz C down, a Ju-390 appears and heads for the
    beach.  Bring it down the same way to end the mission and the game.

    Seems the Germans are a little irritated by you taking out their program.  In
    retaliation, they have fired a whole bunch of V-1 rockets at your airbase.
    It's up to you to bring them down.
    
    -  The first wave of three comes in over the horizon making for an easy
       intercept.
    
    -  The second wave comes over the water which takes you a little further out
       and away from the airbase.
    
    -  The third wave are three groups of V-1 rockets.  Cycle through target lock
       to pick up the closest rockets.  Then quickly go to the next closest, etc.

    The Instant Action will pit you against another player and it will run just
    like the Instant Action option except it's against a live player.  It is the
    Two Player mode that will be discussed here.  There are seven missions for you
    and another player to fly in.  Some have you working cooperatively while others
    have you fighting each other.
    
    These are the mission to choose from.  They are listed as:

    Player 1 plays as the allies and player 2 plays as the axis.  The objective of
    each player is to destroy each others ground forces and/or plane.  Ground fire
    will be intense and being shot down counts as a kill for the other player even
    if they didn't shoot that player down.

    | 13.  AIRCRAFT DATABASE |=====================================================
    +========================+
    
    You will get the opportunity to fly many different types of aircraft during
    this game.  These aircraft come from five different nationalities:  American,
    British, German, Japanese, and Russian.  In this section, I will put together
    how the game rates the aircraft along with the historic specifications (if any)
    of the different types of aircraft.  After this, a brief blurb about the air-
    craft in question.
    
    First, I will list the name of the airplane and the common nickname it was
    known by.
    
    Next I will list in what mission you acquire this plane.
    
    Then I will list whether the plane is in your hanger, used in Instant Combat,
    or it is Mission or Challenge specific.  These will be abbreviated at follows:
    
    H = Hanger
    I = Instant Combat
    S = Mission or Challenge specific
    
    Then I will list the traits as assigned by the game.  Note, that these are the
    base traits before any upgrades.
    
    There are four traits that are used in the game to "rate" an airplane.  These
    traits are:
    
    Speed:  How fast your airplane can go (top speed).
    Armor:  How much armor the airplane in question has.
    Handling:  How well the airplane can climb, dive, and turn.
    Firepower:  How much firepower the airplane can deliver from its main armament.
    
    The above traits will be rated on a scale of 0 to 10 where 10 is the best.  For
    aircraft that are only for the Instant Action, the numbers will correspond to
    the numbers that exist for other aircraft.
    
    In addition to the above, and to add a little historic perspective, I will also
    include the "real" numbers for these airplanes.  The numbers included are:
    
    Top Speed         :  The fastest said airplane could travel in level flight (in
                         mph).
    Armament          :  The planes actual armament.
    Ceiling           :  The highest the plane could fly (in feet).
    Range (without/   :  Some airplanes used drop tanks.  The farthest a plane
    (with drop tanks) :  could go on a tank of gas (in miles).
    Engine HP and type:  Type of powerplant used to move the airplane in question.
    Rate of Climb     :  How fast the plane could climb without stalling (in
                         ft/min).
    
     _________________
    / 13.1  American /_____________________________________________________________
    -----------------
    
    The Americans developed a variety of airplanes during World War Two.  Since
    they were fighting on two fronts, they had to develop a variety of airplanes
    that not only operated from land, but also from carriers.

    The heavy bomber that is most commonly associated with America.  The B-17 has
    its origins in the mid-1930's as the answer to the Army's request for a heavy
    bomber.  The first B-17's that were sent to England suffered from severe
    defensive problems and not carrying a very heavy load.  Many modifications were
    made and the B-17E was the model that resulted.  Flying in a box formation, the
    B-17's could put up a deadly wall of machine gun fire.  Because of their rugged
    nature, it was very difficult to bring down one of these heavy bombers.  It
    served in many different air forces during the war and it is even used today in
    a limited manner.

    An experimental plane that only made it to the trial run phase.  It was shaped
    like a saucer with the two engines in front.  The specifications were taken
    from what the designers stated the plane could achieve although the test
    flights never met these specifications.  The project was scrapped.

    The thing that the P-40 is best known for is being used by the Flying Tigers.
    Although outclassed by the Japanese planes, pilots took advantage of the P-40's
    strengths and gave a good showing of themselves.  Although the Zero could out
    climb and out-turn the P-40, the P-40 was more heavily armored and it could
    outdive the Japanese planes making it a potent weapon.

    The first generation naval dive bombers.  The Dauntless shone both during the
    battles of the Coral Sea and Midway by sinking four fleet carriers and one
    light carrier.  By the battle of Midway, the Dauntless was outclassed and a new
    dive bomber, the Helldiver, started to make its appearance.  This plane was
    capable of carrying both bombs and torpedoes.

    The first true carrier fighter, the Wildcat was quickly outclassed by the
    Japanese Zero.  Nonetheless, the Wildcat gave a good account of itself due to
    being more heavily armored and also being able to outdive the enemy fighters.
    Tactics were developed that reduced the inferior speed and turn of the Wildcat
    to enable them to make a good showing against the Japanese fighters.  It was
    replaced by the Hellcat.

    The P-38 started to make its appearance in 1942.  In addition to being a
    fighter, the P-38 was also used as a high altitude reconnaissance plane,
    fighter-bomber, and dive-bomber.  It was a well known airplane since it sported
    twin engines with booms that extended back to the twin tails.  The pilot sat
    between the engines and it was known to the Germans as the "Fork-tailed Devil".

    Arguably, one of the best fighters of WWII.  The P-51 combined speed, range,
    and a lethal punch to outclass all other propeller driven fighters.  The
    original models used the Allison engines, but these tended to seize up at high
    altitudes.  The newer ones were equipped with the Rolls Royce engines which
    also contributed to significant performance enhancements.  Also added was the
    bubble-shaped canopy.

    The British didn't have the wide variety of designs that the Americans did.
    This, however, didn't mean they didn't make excellent aircraft.  Images of the
    Battle of Britain bring to mind the two most famous:  The Hurricane and
    Spitfire.  They also used their bi-plane Fairey Swordfish to sink the Bismark
    and lay waste to the Italian fleet.

    With its all wood construction, the Mosquito proved to be an effective
    fighter-bomber throughout the war.  Highly maneuverable and fast, the Mosquito
    was often used for a variety of rolls from interceptor to dam buster.  The
    Mosquito went through several upgrades and proved to be a rugged aircraft
    throughout the war.

    While the rest of the world "graduated" from bi-planes, the British still kept
    this one in stock.  Ineffective as an interceptor or against heavily defended
    ground targets, the Swordfish or "Stringbag" was very effective against sea-
    borne targets.  Swordfish were responsible for the crippling of the Bismark
    and sinking most of the Italian fleet at Taranto.

    Any talk about the Battle of Britain will usually bring up images of
    Hurricanes and Spitfires valiantly fending off the German aircraft.  The
    Hurricane was a fabric covered monoplane that first came about in the late
    1930's.  It proved itself against the old generation of German fighters but
    it was soon outclassed by the next generation.  It was primarily used to go
    after German bombers and dive-bombers although it still served well as an
    interceptor.

    The plane that captured the imagination of the world and reportedly had
    Adolf Galland asking for a squadron of them.  The Spifire was the front line
    interceptor for the British and it served in that roll very well.  It could
    keep up with the new generation of German fighters and it had a devastating
    punch to boot.  The Spitfire went through many design changes and it was used
    until the end of the war.

    Germany was always on the cutting edge when it came to aircraft technology.
    They were the first to successfully launch rocket powered and jet powered air-

    One of the most advanced piston driven fighters, the Do-335 could outperform
    all the allied piston driven fighters.  It was also capable of carrying a
    significant bomb load which made it more suited for the role that the Germans
    wanted to use the Me-262 for.  Only a few production models actually were in

    1941 and went through many incarnations since then.  The Focke Wulf was used
    in a variety of roles but it was as an interceptor where it established a
    reputation.  Later model Focke Wulfs could give the P-51's and P-47's a run
    for their money and it was only because of the lack of experienced pilots that
    the Focke Wulf never achieved its full potential.

    troops and spread terror.  By attaching sirens to the fixed landing struts,
    Stuka dive-bombers could be a terrifying spectacle.  During the Battle of
    Britain, all the shortcomings of the Stukas were shown as so many were shot
    down, they were withdrawn.  They reappeared on the Eastern Front and served in
    a variety of rolls including dive-bombers and tank destroyers (this was

    The first rocket propelled plane, the Me-163 was a flying bomb.  The highly
    caustic and explosive nature of the propellant used made this plane a big
    danger to the pilot.  In addition, the fuel had a limited burn time so the
    pilot could only make one good pass before they would have land again, which in
    itself was a danger.  Most allied pilots waited for these planes to take off or
    land to pick them off.

    The world's first combat operational jet fighter.  The Me-262 actually traces
    its origins back to the late 1930's as designers got serious about fielding a
    jet aircraft.  It would have entered production sooner but Goering, then
    Hitler, insisted it be turned into a bomber which would seriously set back the
    program.  The result was that very few of these planes were produced which was
    good news for the allies.

    counter this.  In addition, the Japanese also developed the first monoplane

    The first all original plane of Japanese origin.  Scoffed off as an inferior
    quality product by the allies, the Zero soon proved them wrong.  Even with
    repeated warnings from those who tangled with these planes, the allies couldn't
    believe the Japanese produced a fighter that outclassed theirs.  Of course,
    this performance came at a cost of little armor and no self-sealing fuel tanks.
    The Zero's main defense was its speed and maneuverability since it only took a
    short burst to bring it down.  This plane served for the entire war period and
    underwent many upgrades.

    ----------------
    
    At the start of the war, many of Russia's planes were severely outdated.  Even
    the newer planes were worthless since there were so few trained pilots to fly
    them.  The result was that the Russian air force ceased to exist until Lend
    Lease and Russian factories started to make good on the losses.  In addition,
    more training for the pilots resulted in the Russians finally being able to
    match the Germans and eventually turn the tide in their favor.

    The Russian's premier ground-attack plane, the IL-2M3 was well suited for this
    mission.  Too heavily armored to make an effective interceptor, the IL-2M3
    proved itself in the ground-attack department by the amount of destruction of
    enemy armor, ground emplacements, and other targets that would have proven
    difficult to deal with.  There were many tank "aces" who flew these planes and
    it instilled fear in the Germans who had to witness the destruction these
    planes could cause.

    | 14.  WEAPONS DATABASE |======================================================
    +=======================+
    
    As you progress through the Campaigns, you acquire improvements upon weapons
    you already have or you acquire new weapons.  Below are descriptions of the
    weapons you will be using.  Keep in mind, that the right weapon for the right
    job will do a lot to help you accomplish your mission.
    
    +-------+
    | BOMBS |
    +-------+
    
    Come in three varieties:  250, 500, and 2000 pound sizes.  The size of the
    bomb determines the damage it can cause.  Again, bigger bombs for bigger
    targets.
    
    +---------+
    | CANNONS |
    +---------+
    
    These are weapons that are bolted to the wings or fuselage of an airplane.
    They come in 37mm and 57mm in size.  The larger shells do more damage but you
    can carry less of them.  The rate of fire is slow so they don't make good
    weapons for air-to-air combat unless you use them against a very slow target.
    
    +---------+
    | FRITZ X |
    +---------+
    
    A German designed guided bomb.  It would be dropped by a plane then guided to
    its intended target which was an allied ship.
    
    +--------------+
    | HENSCHEL 293 |
    +--------------+
    
    German air-to-ground rocket designed to take out ground targets at a long
    range.  It can be partially guided.
    
    +--------------+
    | HENSCHEL 294 |
    +--------------+
    
    German designed rocket powered torpedo.  You fly it toward the target then drop
    it into the water to turn it into a torpedo.  It is guided as a rocket and un-
    guided as a torpedo.
    
    +----------+
    | HIGHBALL |
    +----------+
    
    A round bomb designed by the British for use in dam busting.  A plane would fly
    low and slow and drop the bomb toward the target.  The bomb would then "skip"
    toward the target and detonate on impact.
    
    +---------+
    | ROCKETS |
    +---------+
    
    Are mounted on racks on the wings of planes.  They come in three sizes:  Small,
    medium, and large.  Each size is intended for the appropriate target.  They
    also have a relatively large blast radius.
    
    +-----------+
    | TORPEDOES |
    +-----------+
    
    Dropped by planes to head toward the intended target.  The plane has to be at
    150 feet or lower and going 150 mph or slower in order for the torpedo to re-
    lease.  It requires 250 feet before it arms so make sure you don't drop it when
    the white targeting field is above the target.
    
    +-----+
    | X-4 |
    +-----+
    
    German designed air-to-air missile intended to knock down American bombers.  It
    also can be used as a ground-to-air missile.  It is guided and some models have
    a small camera allowing it to be guided to the target.

    | 15.  CONCLUSION |============================================================
    +=================+
    
    SWON is a fast paced, highly energetic game.  It is both very challenging and
    very frustrating.  I remember playing the first Lucas Arts games on my Atari ST
    years ago.  I played Battlehawks and Their Finest Hour for long hours at a
    time.  Later, I played Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe with the same vigor.
    This game captures that essence and also uses superior graphics and sounds to
    bring the game to life.  Although some scenarios were totally implausible, the
    game still is a lot of fun to play and you can feel yourself getting "wrapped"
    up when you are the only fighter against ten enemy fighters.  That's one way to
    get the adrenaline flowing.  I recommend this game from both a fun standpoint
    and a historical one (to a degree) as well.  This guide, though, was a lot of
    fun to write and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of reading it as I did
    writing it.  If you do have other ideas or thoughts, please e-mail me and share
    them.  Who knows, maybe I'll start a Q&A chapter in this guide if enough people
    ask the same questions.  Anyway, thank you again for reading this guide.
