MJ's Front Mission 4 Guide
Revision: Final

Contact: mjfaqs@live.com

You may not publish this guide without my permission.

Just to be clear, I was the first non-developer on gamefaqs,
and probably the entire internet/world to discover Simulator 13 and 14.
Even the official Front Mission 4 guide does not mention them.

I discovered them on my first playthrough just by playing how I normally do.

Section 01 - Introduction

	Welcome to my FM4 guide.  Front Mission 4 is a game that requires a
good amount of skill to play well.  This guide can remedy some of that skill
for you by instructing you on what wanzer parts and skills to purchase, along
with the general strategies of each mission.  You still need to know how to
use the link system properly to achieve optimal results in battle.  The guide
is based on my Unofficial Score Ranking, which is a way to rank how well
you've done in each mission based on pre-set criteria.  The guide is based on
offensive playing and smart resource management, not turtling or simulator
abuse.  No level in this guide will take more than 20 turns to complete, with
an average of 13 or so.

I've given each mission a difficulty rating from 1 to 6 stars.

1 Star (*) - A training mission.  No risk of dying unless you're trying hard
to.

2 Stars (**) - A bit tougher than a training mission.  You need to use basic
tactics here at least, like the link system, setting up your wanzers and
skills properly, etc.

3 Stars (***) - An average difficulty mission.  You need to use some specific
tactics to succeed, and you might get in some trouble if you screw up.
Overall, though, you won't be in too much danger as long as you follow basic
battle tactics.

4 Stars (****) - Above average difficulty mission.  These missions can be
difficult for numerous reasons, but they always involve a higher than normal
risk of failure, with some definite 'danger' spots.  You need to achieve
objectives that are often involved and difficult, requiring use of pre-battle
configuration of wanzers, skills, and links, along with effective tactics and
use of enemy AI.

5 Stars (*****) - High difficulty mission.  On these missions, you must
perform mission specific pre-battle configuration of links and equipment, and
play at a high level of skill while knowing exactly what to do in the
mission.  The risk of failure or a destroyed wanzer is quite high and you
usually won't make it out of the mission without some heavily damaged wanzers
(although no broken parts, I hope).

6 Stars (******) ? Highest difficulty mission.  You must to perform extensive
pre-battle configuration of links and equipment.  These missions have map
conditions that are even more difficult than keeping all of your wanzers
healthy and fighting well, which you will also have a difficult time doing
without expert abilities.  They may have extra bonus conditions that are even
more difficult to achieve.  Lucky you therefs only one level in the game that
I consider to be this difficult.



Section 02 - Gameplay Tips

Here are some assorted tips that I'll develop as I write the guide.

Links with melee units are extremely effective throughout the game.  Learn how
to attack in sequences that optimize your melee attacks and link chains.  Link
chain bonuses can do some incredible damage!  The most effective fighting
method is to attack with a Melee unit who is linked to your gunners, and pull
off a large link combo.  Then, have all the gunners linked to the melee unit -
as long as they have enough AP to fire their weapons, the melee unit can
attack with them.  Position your melee units between two enemies when
possible, because normal wanzers usually don't survive more than a few link
attacks.

Making the most of your melee unit is important in links.  If you begin your
turn with an enemy next to your melee unit, make ranged attacks on that unit
for melee support, unless therefs a higher priority enemy.  Once that unit is
dead, move your melee unit to a new target and trigger some more attacks.
Position your ranged units in ways that allow them to strike multiple enemies
at once for more support.  Keep in mind which units are linked and not, as you
can always fire through a non-linked ally.

If a support weapon runs out of ammo or is broken, the pilot will not support
with their other weapon (if any), so keep an eye out.

Rifles and bazookas only use their wielding arm for an accuracy bonus, the
other arm doesnft need to be high accuracy.  If the wielding arm is broken,
the weapon cannot be used.  If the non-wielding arm is broken, the weapons
accuracy is cut in half.

Aiming ranged weapons with link attacks is important to get the hang of.
While you can't fire directly in front of a linked unit, you can almost always
move a bit to the side and get the same results.  Plan out how your units are
going to make a successful link attack.  Since melee units have low AP
requirements, it's smart to angle them to the side or behind an enemy so your
ranged units have a clear shot at the enemy, while your melee unit can pound
on them with links.

Fighting enemies in tight corridors is often a bad idea, since you'll block
each other off and become much less effective.  Try to lure them out into the
open or find something else to attack instead.

Unlike Front Mission 3, shields are less important and dual wielding is more
of a possibility, due to the healing wanzer.

The enemy AI has two main traits.  First, it is scripted to wait until a
certain turn to move out and attack your party, or it will simply wait to be
attacked.  Second, it acquires the first target it can attack, and will often
stick with that target until it sees a better opportunity (for example, a
ranged unit may switch to attacking a melee unit).

Damage is worthless without accuracy.  You will get ahead in the long run with
more accuracy rather than more damage, especially with single shot weapons
like RF, BZ, and ML.  However, your own pilots evasion isn't something you
should worry about until the end of the game when you have more EP points to
spend.

Shotguns aren't too useful until you can hit more reliably with them and they
meet up with machine guns in damage.

The two most important stats for your pilots in the game are AP and links.
Luckily, they're both fairly inexpensive.  More AP means more linked attacks,
and more linked attacks means more damage and very dead enemies.  No enemy can
survive a fully linked gang beating with AP stocked pilots for long.



Section 03 - Wanzer/Pilot Setup

Taking the time to prepare your wanzers and pilots for battle is an ongoing
task in the game that will either lead to easier battles, or more difficult
ones.  Thankfully for you this guide tells you the ideal setups for each
pilots wanzer, and what skills to buy in what order.  With wanzers, you want
the highest accuracy, the most evasion, the most power, and the most
mobility.  Since EMP backpacks are too unreliable and not useful in most
levels and Sensor packs are worthless in most levels, you can safely ditch
them and build some more powerful wanzers for your pilots.

Some of the best battle skills are the ones that are passive, non-situational,
don't rely on parts breaking to activate, or don't take up a whole turn or
rely on counterattacking.  Some of your pilots (Hermes, Bosch, etc.) never get
any link/attack skills, so you must buy some for them at the computer shop.

Here's a list of the good skills, the decent ones, and the bad ones.

Bad Skills -

Defense, First, Rush, Hold - All of these are conditional and activate
randomly, thus you never know whether it'll actually be useful or a hindrance.

Alertness, Sensor Plus - These skills require an entire turn to use, and do no
damage on their own.  The sensor BP is worthless in most missions anyway.

Revenge, Last Stand, Shield Bash, Last Dash - All of these skills rely on
damage to your wanzer or parts breaking, which you never want to allow to
happen.

Defend Body - You never know whether your body or arms/legs will be low on
HPs, and this skill activates randomly.  Could easily lead to unnecessarily
broken parts.

Barrage - This skill is quite worthless as you almost never have more than 2
linked enemy wanzers in MG attack range, and you can never rely on it
activating.

Auto Machine - Status damage is easily curable, so this is just a waste of
slots and EPs, plus you don't know whether your EMPed guy is going to be
attacked anyway.

Decent Skills -

Anti-Skill - Good against bosses and some levels where all the enemies have
loads of skills.  It doesnft stack with regular skills, though, so youfre
missing out on a Feint or attack skill.

Sniper Skills - Good when you need to take out a certain body part, but costly
in terms of AP use and lack of link support/counterattacks.  Also, these
skills take the place of more damaging skill activations, and cannot be linked
by anybody.

Fix DMG - Conditional, so you never know when it'll work for you or not or
whether the enemy is using missiles/bazooka/rifle or whether their damage will
fall into the Fix DMG range.  Still, not too bad when it works.

Minus Shot, Panic Shot - Good for making link chains, but otherwise skills
that do more damage or increase accuracy are better.

AP Cost -4, -8, 0 - Good on sniper or bazooka units, as they can continue to
perform link attacks.  They can activate it even when their AP is too low to
fire normally.  Does take the place of another more potent skill, though, and
is conditional.

Escape - While sounding good initially, remember that the enemy retains their
AP and you will have to face them eventually.  Useful in a few levels though.

Anti-Break - A good skill, but it can activate when you could have used a
Feint or other defensive skill instead.

Boost - Useful early in the game, but once everyone's levels are at 3 it
doesn't really matter.  I'm not sure if you can get more damage out of this
even if you have level 3 in a weapon.

Skill Down, AP Damage - Slightly useful, but not really.  AP Damage only halts
the enemy until they engage someone who doesn't have the skill or isn't linked
to someone with the skill.  Enemy skills are rare enough that 5% or 10% down
won't make a difference.

Good Skills -

Feint, Full Defense, Block DMG 50 - All good defensive skills.

Terror Shot, Zoom - Accuracy is always good.  I'd say Zoom is better than
Terror shot since multiplying your accuracy is better than dividing the
enemy's evasion.  It is fairly conditional but accuracy is very important in
this game so there's no avoiding it.

Double Punch, Double Assault, Double Shot, Rapid Fire, Charge, Blast
Strike/Shot, Perfect Shot/Strike/Missile - All great attack and link skills
that will cause major damage.

EP Plus - More EPs are always welcome.  Only Zead and Ines get this skill by
default, so you have to spend 3,000 gold in the computer shop to get it for
anyone else.  Recommended for Thammond at least.

Chain Up, AP Bonus, Skill Up, Hit Rate Up - All good skills for your linked
battles.

Move Plus, Repair Plus - Move plus is great on anybody, and Repair Plus is
good for your two healers.

Pilot status skills range in importance, depending on how useful they are and
how much more damage your pilot can do with them.

1. Weapon Proficincies - more damage per shot
2. Links - Lets you link up with other pilots, very important.
3. AP & AP Charge - More attacks/link attacks.
4. Evasion - Good for dodging more shots.
5. Speed - Allows you to attack faster.
6. Resistances - Not super useful, but good when you've run out of other
things to buy.

Section 05 - MJ's Unofficial Score Ranking

What is the Unofficial Score Ranking (USR)?

The FM4 Unofficial Score Ranking is a set of rules and rankings that players
can use to score how well they played through the missions of FM4.  The
rankings are easy to calculate, based directly on in game data, and are a good
indicator of player ability.  The ranking focuses on scores that a good player
will strive for - high enemy damage, low player damage, max EP points, and a
modest time limit.  The scoring system is based on honesty, so play fair and
make sure you enjoy the challenge!



USR Rules:

1. You may only play the simulator missions one time each.

Analysis: Since you can't use the simulator for EPs, gold, experience, or
weapon levels, you need to get as much as possible in the missions themselves.

2. You must complete the simulator missions as soon as they are available.
All simulator missions are ranked.

3. You must unlock simulator missions whenever possible.  You may, however,
delay playing a simulator mission as long as that team (Durandal or UCS) can
play it later without going into their next mission.

4. If you unlock two simulator missions in one mission, complete the lowest
number first (for example, do UCS04, then UCS09)

5. Abuse of quicksaves is NOT allowed.  This means saving before an attack
then constantly reloading to get a desired result out of their attack, for
example an EMP attack, or a hit on an enemy wanzer body.



USR Rankings:

You are graded for your performance based on each level out of 100 points.
Too many penalties will result in a lower rank.  However, the system is
flexible enough to reward the highest rank even with a few flaws.  The ranks
are:

Platinum: 90 or above
Gold: 80 or above
Silver: 70 or above

Tactics Ranking - The tactics score represents the number of turn cycles taken
to end the mission successfully.  There is a count of allowed turn cycles for
each mission.  Subtract 3 points for every extra turn cycle past the turn
cycle count.

Analysis:  These turn counts are not 'as fast as possible' scores, but scores
that are a balance between speed and optimal funds/survival/EP.  You'll be
able to go through the missions at a pace that allows you to keep your wanzers
healthy and your enemies dead.  This is done through intense pre-battle
planning and smart in-battle tactics.


Survival Ranking - The survival score represents the number and type of broken
parts at the end of the mission.  Units other than your main 12 wanzers
(British, Al Alianza..) do not count.  Subtract 4 points for each broken
arm/leg at the end of the mission.  Subtract 8 points for each broken body at
the end of the mission.

Analysis: Broken parts will happen, but they can be restored.  The turn cycle
count is comfortable enough that you can play through each mission with no
broken parts by the end of it.


Avg. EP Ranking - The EP gained score represents the average EPs gained at the
end of the mission.  There is an average EP count for each mission.  If a
pilot has EP Plus, subtract 20% of their EP score before taking an average.
Subtract 1 point for every EP point below average.

Analysis: Your pilot gains EP for a kill as long as they initiated combat with
the enemy unit.  In addition, pilots who initiated combat with an enemy unit
will allow a pilot that they are linked to gain in experience from a kill,
regardless of whether or not they initiated combat with the enemy unit.
Getting EPs is important for growth in the game, so get as many as possible!

Zead while finishing off S1, but don't kill it until Elsa and Hermes can get
in a shot.  C1 will sometimes get in the way of your party depending on your

Make sure you set up your links and wanzers before starting this one.  You
might not have enough money to do all the wanzer setup here, but you will soon
enough.  Do not waste your money on power packs for Zead or Latona.

Pilot Setup ?

The Pilot setups for the early game are all about digging into the ranks for
link points, weapon proficiencies, and good link skills.  The goal is to link
everyone up to Latona ASAP so she can deal major linked melee damage, which
will make your team majorly powerful on the offense.

El: Buy Link Points+2, Double Shot I, remove Panic Shot I and equip Double
Shot I
Ze: Buy Rank 2, EP Plus

Wanzer Setup -

Here's the first round of wanzer equipment.  The Gust 500 weapon arms have
both excellent accuracy and superior firepower, so there's no reason not to
equip these suckers on everyone who wields a MG.  They're so good they'll last
through the second round of equipment, too!
I suggest you remove Latonafs EMP backpack and especially Boschfs Sensor
backpack.  The EMP Backpack is nice when it works, but the numbers are often
far too poor to justify the loss of melee damage Latona can do, since melee
attacks gain a damage bonus if the wanzer has extra power available that is
not utilized by the weight of the arms/legs/body.  As anyone who has played
Fire Emblem will tell you.. never rely on a 50% chance to do anything!  The
Sensor backpack is completely useless once you get Zead a set of high mobility
legs, and his AP levels will rise higher than anyone else on the team, making
it easy for him to maneuver himself around just fine.  Bosch himself will
benefit, as you can give him a great Elsa-style wanzer setup instead of a
crippled Hermes-style wanzer setup.

It's worth it to heal the NPC ally, since the enemies will pound on him in
your place, and he'll dish out a fair amount of damage himself.  If he kills a
unit, your pilots will still get the experience.

Move your units west - Latona first, Elsa second, Hermes third, then Zead
fourth.  If the allied wanzer gets directly hit by G1's bazooka shot, I
suggest you just restart the mission, because he will usually dodge it.  Have
Elsa repair the NPCs left or right arm, and Hermes repair the NPCs body.
Attack S1 with Zead and Latona.

Proceed with a general ass beating of G1 and S1-2 - use link attacks again
with Latona pounding away.  Nobody should take any significant damage, unless
you're unlucky with the bazookas - then just do a link-repair with Hermes.
Aside from one more heal of the NPCs legs, he should last the rest of the
battle just fine.

Liquefy the tanks and move out against the sniper and gunner.  You should now

attacks per turn on the unfortunate target of your choice.  If you don't block
the bridge when killing the gunner, and don't provide the sniper with a shot
as he moves down the ramp, he will move into the main road on his own, where
you can easily gang up on him, instead of being cramped up.

On to the main entr?e, the four enemies to the west.  It's best if you spread
out the enemies target acquiring, since all four enemies beating on a unit is
tough to handle.  Wait until the shotgunner moves forward at least, so you can
distribute the AI targeting instead of having them gang up on one unit.  Take
out whoever's in front of Dranz, then go after him with melee link attacks.
He won't last more than two turns.  Take the sniper out next, then the

should be taking out one full unit a turn, with the enemies trying to gang up
on the evasive Bosch.  Move Zead eastward out of the bridge entrance once the

out of her per turn, plus counterattacks.  Even Wagner won't stand much of a
chance once you link out on him.

	Start out using piercing weapons on the gunners.  They will do a bit
of damage but nothing you can't heal.  Trash em all quickly and move on to the
machine gunners.  Draw them out a bit instead of fighting them on the ramp,
then take them apart.  Try to destroy the grenade launcher asap.

       Do a bit of healing on the way up the ramp, then bring Wagner and
friends over.  Take Wagner out first thing, then the sniper, and then the
gunner.  Try to get them focused on Latona and Bosch, since they have very
high evasion rates.  Make sure Latona is there for every hit on Wagner for
more melee support.  Wagner should go down in two turns at most with constant
attacks.  By the time you take them out and the base cannon, the two copters
should be right there to blow up.  Use Elsa/Zead on the east copter, and
Hermes/Bosch (and Zead if necessary) on the south copter.

With Bosch and Elsa, trail after Wagner.  Once he's close to the shotgunner,
stay out of his attack range, or he'll turn around and start firing, and you
want him to keep moving.  Once Wagner is past the gunner, trash it with Elsa
and Bosch, then meet up with Zead's team in the center to take on Wagner.

With Zead's team, move south and engage all three enemies.  Don't fight the
gunner until he's out of the narrow corridor.  With those enemies dead, head

Make sure Wagner has someone to attack when your teams meet, or he'll just
keep running north.  Bosch, Elsa, or Latona are preferable.  Quickly trash the
sniper standing in the way before taking Wagner on, so Latona and Hermes can
break out.  Pull some link madness on Wagner and he won't last more than a

Southeast Drop Zone (near the group of 5 snipers)

Battle:

Ines will be acting as a melee and grenadier unit until the minotaur arms show
up.  So for now, she can be a second melee link attacker along with Darril.
Her grenades are important in this battle - they can really put a hole through
the snipers and they're useful for taking out near-dead units.  Don't waste
grenades, though - only use them when you can hit 2 or more enemies at once.
This is a good mission to practice tossing them around.

The large group of snipers will bunch up on the road, making perfect grenade
targets.  As tempting as it might be, don't split your group up to attack the
snipers attacking from the side, just take the enemies out one at a time as a
team.  They will be coming at a fairly steady pace, so you'll almost always
have a new one to gang up on.  Try to get them to make stupid shots that have
extremely poor accuracy.  Use the double melee links with Darril and Ines to
do some serious pounding.  There are some good melee spots north of your team
where your units can hop behind bushes, while the snipers have a terrible hit
rate.

Sometimes a sniper or two may start moving towards your party very late - just
chase after them if you've got nothing left to kill.

Prioritize grenade drops on the sensor wanzer, as it is a pain to hit, like
all sensor wanzers.

Take out the copters as they approach while heading west.  Engage the west
group with grenades and link attacks.  Have Renges/another gunner blow off the
grenade arm of whatever grenadier/missileer is launching grenades at your
party.  After that danger is taken care of, beat the crap out of the gunners
and melees with grenades and just like the first group.

This mission is one of the tougher simulations.  Immediately run south and
obliterate the missileers and base cannon.  The enemy melee units will come at
you one at a time, slow enough to deal with them if you put all your power
into wiping them out one at a time.  Don't fight near the top of the ramp:
back down slowly while pounding with grenades and linked melee attacks, so
that the enemy grenadier can't get a shot at you until most of the melees are
dead.  Once the grenadier is in attack range, take him out with the full force
of your party (plus or minus Ines), then finish off the remaining melees and
the northeast turret.  You need top condition skills, wanzers, and links to be
able to handle the melees without them backing up.  If you take too long, the
melee units will back up and the grenadier will tear your party apart.

Battle:

In this battle, you must destroy all units.  The problem is, they start
running away after you kill the fourth one.  You have to take out legs and
generally weaken the whole group to the point where you can kill them all off
in a turn or two without them running away.  Grenades are a big help, as is
Renges' Focus Down skill.

The copters are the easiest to keep alive and kill reliably, as long as
they're very low on health and you don't let them run for it.  The ranged
attackers like the gunners and snipers are most likely to run for the hills
while hitting you at range, while the melee units are usually stupid enough to
hang around and attack you instead of fleeing.

Move Darril's group west and knock the legs off two of the wanzers, and get
the copter down to very low HPs.  Then proceed south with them to the south
group.  Have Ines lob grenades on the southwest group to soften them up.

Calvo's group should move west and critically wound the copters, as well as
try to kill the mech outright.  Move Rodriguez westward and start bombing the
southwest group along with Ines.

Injure the southwest copter, and make sure the sniper isn't going to be
running anywhere.  Once the southwest gunners are weak enough to be killed
with one more grenade shot, start killing them all.  Drop a grenade on the
crippled north units that are remaining, and shoot all the copters down.
Anything that has legs should be prioritized for killing.  Take one last day
to finish off whatever else you didn't kill.  You should definitely get this
done, because you need to unlock UCS Simulator 10 in order to win the Minotaur
Arms, which is nearly essential in the next mission.

Battle:

This is a nasty battle involving no less than three rocket launcher wanzers,
which are to be your mortal enemies.  They can bomb you far faster than you
can repair yourself, and facing three of them means a whole lot of trouble.
You'll need the minotaur arms on Ines to blast away the regular enemies and
allow you to focus on the rocket launchers.

One good thing about the rocket launchers is that they only have a launcher on
their left arm.  That means you only have to take out that arm to render them
harmless.  Renges's sniping will be very handy for blowing those arms away.

Start out moving your units south along the road.  Move Darril and Luis before
Chaeffer, and move Calvo straight south.  For some reason, Calvo seems to be
the favorite target of most enemies in this level.  Have Ines fire the first
rocket at the enemy group below you.

You'll get smashed by your first rocket on enemy turn 1.  On turn 2, blast the
baddies with a grenade and rocket blast.  Have someone with high evasion
attack the rocket launcher - all of the enemies are linked, so whoever attacks
first is going to get blasted at.  With that out of the way, snipe the rocket
launchers left arm, then perform a relentless assault until you break the
arm.  There's not really any luck involved - just keep attacking and you'll do
enough damage to break it.

On turn 3, kill one of the snipers blocking the way with Luis, then break out
and move southeast towards the second rocket launcher with everyone but Ines
and Chaeffer, who should move south.  If your units aren't too close to him,
he won't do anything, which is what you want.  If he decides to lob rockets at
you, consider trying to approach him at a bit more of a distance.  I'm not
sure what the exact conditions are - anyway, it's possible to complete the
mission while taking the hit.

Send the Al Alianza units east to the bridge to face off with the two linked
bazooka units.  Don't let them both lock onto the same target, or that target
will probably end up in very bad shape and cost you maintenance money.  It's
best to surround one of them and just fire away, as there's not much of a
better strategy.  Let one of the non-targeted units attack first to take any
counter damage, then fire away with the rest of the group.

Meanwhile, move Ines and Chaeffer south to start rocket bombing the south
group.  They'll give chase to her, so just keep moving back north and bombing
them at range, while Chaeffer picks the two gunners off and repairs Ines.
Once you finish with the second rocket launcher with Darril, Renges, and Luis,
send them south (you can move over the low-level buildings) to take out the
third one and the rest of the south force, which should be significantly
damaged from Ines's carpet bombing.  Good thing too, because everyone will be
really beat up at this point by the constant rocket flinging.  Vavilov will be
weak enough that you can blast him without needing to get into melee range.

Send Ines and Renges back up northeast to help finish off the bazooka units
while you repair any broken parts with Chaeffer.  Lob rockets with Ines then
fire her bazooka, and use some body snipes with Renges to seal the level for
good.

to the west in the meantime - blast him with Zead but don't get anyone else
close to the missileer behind him.  The paperweight gunners will arrive soon
afterwards - crush them quickly, then proceed west and south to take out the
snipers and missileers.  Have Zead and Hermes well protected while crippling
the snipers, then go after the missileers.  Prioritize Zead's targets on
snipers that have taken a roof position.  In the open space with snipers and
missileers shooting at your party, you're guaranteed to have a few scratches,
but it's possible to handle it with some skill.  Don't split your group up

though.  After the killing, proceed north then west and tear apart all
opposition with link attacks.  You should be getting some pretty good 4-link
attack combos now.  Kill the gunners, run past the sniper while hitting it
with missiles, kill the missileer, then finish the sniper off.  For some
reason the gunners try to charge down the empty street instead of fight, so
make sure they're nice and dead.

Wanzer Setup -

You have more options here for the third set of wanzer equipment.  You can
choose between damage and accuracy with the FV-24 or Grayeye machine gun, and
you can choose between medium evasion, high movement and high HP or high
evasion, medium movement and medium HP with the Novaraid or Vaje/Stork legs.
This is also the point where the wanzer parts and skills are good enough for
Zead to wield a bazooka and shoulder missile.  The Zead modification is the
only one that I think is necessary at this point, but you're free to make your
own modifications - just remember that you need to spend a considerable amount
of money to get anyone proficient in a new weapon type.

I personally prefer the Grayeye MG, as it has great accuracy even at range.
The FV-24 has a bit more power, but consider the overall damage output of the
weapon.  The Grayeye works well with links and AP use since you can be
accurate from far away, plus it's highly accurate overall - enemies will
rarely ever dodge.  The FV-24 does more damage, but as soon as an enemy dodges
your shots, the overall damage output goes way below the Grayeye - and they
will do a lot of dodging, especially if you attack at range.  The other choice
is to try to get Grille 6 arms for your gunners, but that isn't possible
without sacrificing something else on the wanzer.

Since it's nighttime with reduced accuracy, your wanzers should be dodging
most shots, while nailing the enemy repeatedly.  The gunners are very easy to
kill, and the bazooka units are a bit sturdier, but will have a hard time
hitting your units with high evasion.  By the time the initial group is gone,
reinforcements will be arriving.  Meet them in the middle with the boxes and
crates and take them out in the same manner.  There's no real good point for
the second airstrike, just drop it wherever you can get 2 Bazooka units that
aren't in immediate attack range.  If you bomb a gunners arms off, it'll just
sit there and you'll have to hunt it down.

Get ready for a quick and violent battle on the Megafloat mission with enemy
wanzers all over the place.  You aren't going to turtle up on the ramps, are
you?  That's not what this guide is about!  Get in there and let the killing
begin!

Immediately start an air strike against the two rockets and grenadier unit.
Once again, the rocket launchers only have a rocket on the left arm, which you
should aim to destroy instead of the body.  Move everyone down the right ramp
towards the first rocket unit - move Latona in a straight line down the ramp
so that the enemy gunner doesn't get in her way.  Latona, Bosch, and Zead are
three units that are guaranteed to be able to fire on it.  Send Latona up
first, then fire with Zead and then Bosch.  They should do enough damage to
take its arms off, if not kill it outright.  Set up a second bombing with Beck
against the grenadier and remaining rocket unit.  Send Latona and Bosch back a
bit to help fight off the bazooka, gunner, and melee units.  Hermes should
repair them, as they will have taken rocket and grenade blasts.  Once the
Grenadier is close enough, have everyone jump it and kill it.  It takes a bit
of a beating but will go down with one concentrated group attack.

The rest of the level is just tearing up the rest of the enemy units.  The EMP
units take first priority, then everyone else.  Just about everyone has such
high dodge rates that the bazookas will rarely hit.  Latona can literally
dance around an entire bombardment.  Link attacks and piercing weapons are the
rule of the day here.  Stay on the east side until you've killed everyone
there, then move up and around against Dranz and the remaining two units that
just sort of sat there the whole level.

repaired.  At least two of the british units will need a body repair.  Go on
the offensive, splitting up into an upper-middle team of four and a lower team
of two.  Take out the gunners before the grenadiers, as the brits have fire
armor and not piercing.  Your units won't be taking much flack since the
enemies will be pursuing the british units.  On the first turn, set up an air
strike on the bottom road that should catch a grenadier and two gunners - this
will make it easier for your two units to destroy them.  The battle doesn't
last long if you work on demolishing as much as possible while the enemies
chase after the brits.  Just drop the second air strike wherever you like.
Maybe on the same poor gunners/grenadier a second time.  Itfs fairly wild and
even a bit uncontrollable for a turn or two, but quickly settles down if you

Battle:

The Al Alianza team should always have both grenadiers, both snipers, and a
gunner, unless indicated otherwise.  From now on their positions will be

Start bombing with the minotaur arms while pounding through with Darril's
team.  The enemy forces are mostly pushovers, and breaking through into the
base should not be much of a problem with strong links.  Darril's Ogon F rod
will be putting extreme hurt on his foes, and the minotaur rockets can easily
soften up just about everything on the map.  Killing the sensor wanzers is
fairly important, but most of the missileers are inactive for the first few
turns, so you have a bit of leeway, plus the enemies won't be doing much but
scratching your tanked out wanzers anyway.  Once the ground forces are gone,
plow through the EMP units, then go into the base and south to catch the
missileers and sniper/gunner wanzers that decide to go harass the Al Alianza
units.

With Al Alianza, drop grenades on the wanzers while the other units fire at
the turret.  The gunners won't even be able to touch the sensor wanzer, but
grenades will have it eating dirt quickly.  Send your snipers and gunner after
the second turret, while moving your grenadiers further east to blast any
wanzers that proceed down the ramp.

Wanzer Setup ?

The Durandal team is very quickly stuck with a whole new round of wanzer
upgrades (the next to last one) plus a full selection of computer skill sets.
Considering that you get the Grille 6 Horn wanzer set plus a Zhelanie II set
and the Grom bazooka in the next level and simulator, I suggest that you wait
on the upgrades for this mission, especially if youfve already got good setups
from the last round of upgrades.  The set of wanzer parts prior to this set
will see you through the level fine as long as your pilot skills and links are
up to snuff.  See the next mission for all the ideal setups.

Battle:

Immediately call an air strike on the grenadiers.  Youfve got to kill these
buggers ASAP so that they donft damage the carrier beyond 1600 HP.  Trash the
EMP unit along the way.  Your units should be very close to them afterwards,
and one of the rocket units will probably decide to bomb your wanzers instead
of the carrier.  Position Latona between the two units and kill both of them
with link attacks.  Kill the last grenadier and EMP unit then move around the
mountain range westward to meet with the missileer, bazookaman, and gunner.
Call a second air strike on the bazookaman/gunner and missileer if you can
include him.  Trash all three of them, then proceed east along the mountains
to face the remaining gunner/bazooka pair.

Battle:

This is an urban based level with an initial firefight then a hunt northward
in tight confines.  Start out by taking the rocket launchers left arm out and
dropping impact armor on your team.  It wonft fire on the first turn, but take
it out on turn 2 to be safe.  Itfs tough to get an angle on it, so just focus
your attacks and itfll go down.  Next, youfll have to deal with 5 jetpack
rifle/bazooka wanzers and two copters.  Use Latona with attack links to take
them out one at a time, hopefully destroying 1 per turn at least.  If they
jump up on the rooftops or wonft leave them, move the target wanzer far away
enough, and the enemy will jump down into the streets to follow.  The copters
are very easy to take down.

While youfre finishing the 5 attackers off, make air strikes on the north
groups.  Donft hit any wanzer twice, or theyfll run back to the repair wanzer
and sit around instead of moving south.  Proceed north and take out the
copters and remaining enemies.  The confies are difficult to work with, so
just try to move one wanzer in front of the other making subsequent attacks,
with Latona going last with a melee attack.  Theyfll be much easier to kill if
youfve already softened them up with air strikes.  If any wanzers jetpack onto
the buildings, fire missiles at them.  The copters approaching from the east
can be annoying if they start backing away to the south, so make sure to keep
whatever target theyfve acquired moving northward so the rest of your team can
easily finish them off.  In the back corner is another rocket launcher.  It
should be easy enough to finish off with link attacks.

This is one of the few missions where a sensor backpack will come in handy.
Since the slow moving british units wonft be able to catch up to your team,
you can use the sensor pack to have them firing missiles well after your units
have left them behind.  If you donft care about finishing the level in 13 as
opposed to 12 turns, though, just forget it.  Latona is the best candidate to
carry the sensor pack.  Donft bother with EMP or antilock ? as long as your
team is aggressive, destructive, and smart, your main wanzers wonft be taking
many missile hits.

Change armor to fire.

Battle Position:

Battle:

Start out moving your team north to take out the missile turret and sniper.
Use the brits to finish the sniper off and attack the EMP unit.  The recon and
EMP units will come down in the brits face to attack, which puts them in good
range for your next strike.  Note that the brits will get hit by missiles ?
theyfre all big tanks with fire armor, so you can afford to let them get a bit
roughed up in place of your own units.  Move back down the ramp and east to
destroy the pair, while calling down pierce armor on Elsafs team and any brits
you can fit in there.  The next objective is a pair of EMP/sensor wanzers and
a sniper coming down the left ramp.  Most likely the sensor will be blocked by
the EMP and sniper, so just focus on destroying the EMP then sniper.  Once the
EMP is out, have the brits move eastward while getting shots on the sensor or
missile turret.  You will get a few missiles launched at your party, but
nothing you canft repair.  While the brits proceed east, move your units north
to destroy the turret then east along the platform to face another pair of
EMP/sensor units.  Block the east ramp with the brits to prevent the pair from
running away from Elsafs team, then destroy em ? you can use an airstrike here
if you want.  At this point, another pair will be coming down the ramp towards
your party ? once again destroy those buggers before any missiles are launched
your way.  At this point, the brits wonft be able to catch up to your party
hightailing it east, so if you have a sensor pack, it will come in handy at
this point.  This is the easiest part of the level - just work your way east
then north, taking out the remaining turrets and enemies.  If you have any
airstrikes left, use them on the two wanzers in the northeast corner.

Battle:

This is a short but violent mission thatfs difficult to get a handle on.  The
enemies are linked in pairs with fairly high AP and skills that can cause
major damage on any wanzer they focus on.  Itfs also easy to get overrun by
enemies or hammered by rockets.  Luckily the rocket launchers have extremely
low HPs and their arms can be taken out with one solid MG/SG attack, but the
problem is reaching the northmost one without triggering every other enemy to
gang up on your wanzer out in the open.

Send Elsa against the south rocket launcher while also in attack range of the
nearby enemy trio ? her attack should destroy its left arm and make it
worthless.  Have Hermes attack the rocket launcher north of your party, who
should get link support from Bosch and cripple it if not kill it.  Then send
Latona and all others against the southeast group, hopefully taking out at
least one of the enemies.  Make a drop of impact armor on your party.

Ifm not sure what it is that triggers the nearby set of units to start moving
and attacking.  I think it has to do with how close you are to them, but Ifm
not sure.  Provoke them and take them in the two space corridor, firing
missiles on the third rocket launcher until itfs rendered harmless.  Keep
healing and replace damaged units with healthy ones for the enemies to
target.   This is easier when youfre fighting in the corridor instead of out
in the open.  Make an air strike on the southeast group, then provoke the
northeast group.  They should both gather together for one big airstrike
thatfll hit 4-5 of them at once and put a quick end to the battle.  If it
helps, you can set up salvage links with Beck, although I didnft need to.

Wanzer Setup ?

This is one of the few missions where the sensor backpack comes in handy,
since the british missileers will take far too long to move east and battle
Glaeser.  From my experience, though, it isnft really worth it, since the brit
missileers will have a fairly intense battle with the three units theyfre
given to fight.

Change armor to pierce.

Battle Position:

BeZeEl
LaHeBo

Battle:

Here it is, the big battle against Glaeser and his troops.  This is probably
the most dangerous story mission for all of Durandal, as Glaeser has enough
firepower to instantly kill just about any of your wanzers if he gets lucky
enough.  Anybody caught in the unfortunate range of a sensor wanzer will be
focused on and obliterated by missiles, and the anti-lock backpack only helps
against a full on missile assault twice or so.

There are several strategies for dealing with the initial recon unit.  You can
move your units just out of its full range (which is 8 tiles+3 sensor range),
you can stick an EMP anti-lock backpack on a unit and use them as missile
cover, or you can move in and let one of your guys get absolutely creamed by
missiles, probably die, and then get salvaged (with no maintenance penalty
involved).  If speed doesnft matter to you, just get right outside of its
range or use the EMP backpack.  If not, get Latona right up in his face and
have her get completely blasted away and revived.  Drop impact or fire armor
on your party, also.

The British units are in for a rough time.  Itfs fairly random whether or not
youfll lose one or two, due to the enemy sniper unit getting lucky body shots
and the sensor unit calling in missiles while dodging all of the brits shots.
You canft lose more than two brits, though, or you wonft unlock Simulator 12.
First, focus on the sensor unit ? blast that sucker with missiles, surround
him, and fire away.  You will almost certainly lose a gunner to the sensor
induced missile bombardment, unless you were lucky and killed the sensor
immediately, usually because the missiles took his legs out.  After that,
focus on killing the repair unit, as itfll keep repairing the sniper if you
try to kill snipey first.  Finally, get your gun on with the sniper and send
him to wanzer hell.  If you lost more than two units, youfre either unlucky or
didnft play very well with the brits.

On with the rest of the mission.  Use link attacks to rip into the sensor
wanzer.  If you have the best accuracy arms, high damage weapons, and super
pilot skills, you can almost definitely take him out.  Afterwards, take out
the sniper and two MGers using standard link-gang up attacks.  Make a left
turn for the remaining three enemies ? take out the sensor again, this time
without letting him call in missiles against you.  Around turn 6 or 7, the
northmost missileers will start moving south.  Use that opportunity to bomb
all four (missileers and gunners) wanzers near Glaeser, which will make them
much easier to kill.  Once you finish up with the three west units, proceed
east towards Glaeser himself.  Try to get into his cannon range and not
missile (unless youfre toting an EMP pack), as his missiles can do up to 800
damage each with perfect missile.  On the other hand, his cannon has poor
accuracy, only does 400 damage, and your agile wanzers can often dodge them.
Let the southmost missileers acquire a soft target like Beck who is certain to
be in full health and available to take a few pot shots.  Perform the second
air strike on a combination of the gunners, missileers, and Glaeser himself.
Prioritize the air strike on the gunners, though, who will take the most
damage.  Gang up on Glaeser like youfve never ganged up on a gigantic four
square occupying monster wanzer before.  With Latona performing a 2.0X Melee
Skills III skill (such as Charge III), she can often do just shy of 2,000
damage, which will easily dig Glaeser an early grave if you let her pound on
him with 4 separate link attacks.

With the big guy dead, take out the gunners if theyfre still alive, then the
remaining missileers.  Donft let the north missileers start backing up north
away from your units ? keep the poor target in place so your other wanzers can
kick the crap out of them (unless itfs Latona, who has plenty of movement
range to beat on them.)

This mission is a piece of cake for Darrilfs team, but will be tough for the

If they start having trouble killing the repair unit, I suggest sending one of
your units away from Darrilfs group to help, as you have plenty of power to
spare without needing every unit in your group to take on Ivanovna and her
Zhuk-buddies.

The enemies are really no threat to Darrilfs mega-beefed up team.  Past the
initial batch of enemies, the road is all clear.  Send the team east behind
the bushes then straight north for Ivanovnafs Zhuk II, going for the kill.
The other lucky Zhuks will have theirs coming in just a turn or two!  Take
them out (even easier than USN 11), then finish off the repair unit.  No
problem!

For Al Alianza, the going is rougher as they face three units that overpower
them in evasion, accuracy, and firepower.  Drop grenades on the sensor and
quickly surround and kill it.  Go after the gunner next, then the repair
unit.  If you lose a unit or run out of grenade ammo, the repair unit will be
nearly impossible to kill without some help from one of Darrilfs team mates,

Average EP Gain: 12+ avg.
Special Condition: Complete the mission in 15 or less turns.  Unlocks
Simulator D14.  You must also have unlocked D9-12 through the early unlock
challenges.

Pre-Battle Planning:

Believe it or not, the entire Durandal campaign has been a build up for this
difficult level.  This level requires more preparation, planning, and perfect
execution than any other level in the game.  This is especially true if you
have only played the simulator missions once each and want to finish the map
in 15 or less days!  If you want to hit the simulators more than once to get
more gold and EP, you can do so, but be aware that itfs fully possible even
when only playing the simulators once each.

Basically, you have to eliminate all enemies in 15 or less turns, and no enemy
can reach beyond the bottom ramp.  The enemies have the latest weapons,
wanzers, and several elite skills.  You have to split your party into two
separate autonomous teams that must battle 11 enemies each, so youfre already
outnumbered almost 4 to 1.  There are several recon units with 5 square sensor
range that can easily ruin your level attempt with missile showers.  In
addition, many of the enemies are carrying jetpacks that allow them to fly
over your units in a mad dash for the bottom floor ? and they will do so
ruthlessly.  Beckfs radio backpack wonft work, either, due to the compound
being indoors.  All of your pilots must be prepared with strong links, skills,
equipment, and AP levels.  You need to play extremely well and even get a bit
lucky if you want to complete the level in time.  If you screw up, youfll fall
hard.

Pilot Setup ?

Be: Link I, 4 LP+1

I recommend having Anti-Skill on Latona.

Wanzer Setup ?

The keys to completing the map successfully are link attacks and EMP
backpacks.  The EMP antilock is essential in warding off enemy missiles, and
the EMP itself is essential for cutting off enemy movement towards the bottom
ramp.  The EMP pack has a 70% chance to disable melee wanzer movement, and a
100% chance to disable all other wanzer types movement.  You also have a 100%
chance of systems down on most of the weaker non-Jetpack wanzers, and 70% on
most others.  Latona gets the east team EMP, since she has a huge amount of
power to spare, and Beck gets the west team EMP, since his radio backpack
doesnft work in this level anyway.

By this point in the game, you may have changed your party significantly from
mine in terms of weapon usage.  The only major change is Zead toting a
bazooka/rifle, and Beck equipped with a MG for the purpose of triggering
support links.

Link Setup ?

Elsafs team is faced with tougher enemy opposition ? several powerful units
are lined up to be fought, including a trio of jetpack enabled Rock Jack
bazooka wanzers that can easily overwhelm them if they arenft destroying enemy
units fast enough.  The trio should be primed for total slaughter, with all
three units delivering 2.0x level link attacks constantly.

Zeadfs team is weaker in terms of attack power, with Beck being a fairly weak
party member whofs only useful for triggering Zead and Bosch and holding the
EMP pack.  They wonft face a heavy concentration of enemies, but they do have
to deal with the same number of enemies as Elsafs team.  Theyfre responsible
for reaching the top level and destroying the two missile launchers, who start
moving west later in the level.  These guys donft have a repair backpack, so
you have to make sure to keep them healthy!

Battle:

Start moving your teams up their respective sides of the ramp.  The first two
enemies youfll encounter are a melee and sensor unit.  Kill the sensor unit
first, then the melee.  It helps for Zeadfs team to EMP the melee unitfs
movement, so you can blast it away safely.  From here, the two teams face
different challenges and enemies.

Elsafs team should focus on strong offense.  Try to kill 1.5 wanzers per turn
at least and use your links effectively.  The middle area with two ramps will
be the main battleground.  Taking enemies out as they come down the ramp is
important.  You can get decent firing angles supporting Latona at the ramp
entrances, which is good.  The second enemy recon will consistently try to run
around to an open side of the ramp if you block one side, so by switching
sides you can keep him up there until youfre ready to face him.  Donft use EMP
attacks unless an enemy breaks through and tries to make a run for it, as you
want to focus on offense.  Hermes should be offensive and not healing every
turn ? he needs to trigger more attacks by Elsa and Latona, and he can do some
nice damage himself.  Once Elsa runs out of MG ammo, reload her!  She canft do
support attacks otherwise.  If youfre playing well, youfll have all units
destroyed by the time the Rock Jack bros. and a shotgunner show up.  Itfs best
to fight them at the bottom of the two ramps, as theyfll be more spread out
and unable to hit you reliably.  You will definitely need to EMP at least one
or two of their movements, as they can easily jetpack past your team and cause
trouble.  If youfre feeling lucky or just beat up, you can try to EMP them
with 70% chance of systems down.  They will often jetpack from the upper level
right into the group and fire a bazooka shot, which makes it easier to kill
them since you can counterattack and theyfre next to Latona.  Use those links
and kick some butt ? youfll need to do as much ass kicking as you can!

Zeadfs team faces technically lighter opposition, but must reach the very top
to destroy the two missileers.  Itfs going to be a long haul!  Since theyfre
not powerhouses like Elsafs team and they have no healer, Zeadfs team must use
their smarts to avoid damage and use their AP wisely for support attacks.  The
big enemies are the recon units, which can be tough to hit and kill.  Keep
Zead and Bosch always within missile cover when a sensor wanzer shows up.
Bosch and Zead should have decent evasion, but Beck has none, so make sure not
to let him get picked on, as hefll probably get smacked by a few missiles.
Beck doesnft really need to use the EMP pack to disable enemies.  Use him
instead to trigger more linked attacks by Zead and Bosch, who are the only
ones who can do any decent damage.  This side can get really unlucky, if the
sensor wanzer decides to dodge all their shots, or if the sniper starts
breaking parts.  Once you finally reach the missileers, show them no mercy and
mow em down.  They wonft last long!

If youfve completed the mission in 15 or less days, some congratulations are
in order, especially if youfve only played the sim missions once and arenft on
a New Game+.  You have a choice of three great items, and I usually choose the
Radio backpack.  Youfve passed the most difficult mission in the game, but the
Durandal still has one more wild urban mission ahead of them!

This is a difficult and intense urban level with a huge number of enemies
packing serious heat and skills.  Every enemy north of the bridge will start
coming after you by turn 3, so youfll have a lot to handle in a very short
amount of time.  This level features special Type XX wanzers with 3,000 HP
bodies (same values as Wagnerfs final rig), with 7 elite skills, toting high
level MG, SG, MS, and GR weapons.  These suckers take an enormous pounding and
will often only go down with 4 strong link attacks that reach 2.0x each time.
Other enemies in the level are no pushovers either, with powerful wanzers,
weapons and elite skills.

The enemies south of the bridge will not attack unless provoked, so
immediately call an air strike on them to get them off their lazy asses.
Their movement ranges will separate their ranks and they should arrive in a
timely manner just after youfve defeated most of the enemies north of the
bridge.

The general movement plan of your party isnft too complicated, and you wonft
be running around the map hunting any enemies if you choose to provoke the
enemies south of the bridge.  Move south to engage the group of four wanzers,
then head east.  Run Hermes and Beck west along the same road to meet up.
Proceed with the entire party east to engage with the four northeast units and
the three east units, then work south, and finally westward to engage with the
enemies from the south bridge that have lined the road.

Starting out, take the Type XX wanzer out with a serious pounding.  If you
kill it, the other three units will stand still.  If you donft kill it, the
other three units will attack you.  Either way, take out the sensor wanzer
then the two gunners and head east.  During this time, run Hermes and Beck
westward to meet up with Elsafs team.  Beckfs first move should be an air
strike on the southwest group of enemy wanzers.

Head east with Elsafs team to meet up with Beck and Hermes.  Beck and Hermes
will get attacked by the two wanzers and copter ? just keep running em.  Once
Elsafs team arrives, donft run them back really far, just about mid way, so
that the enemy copters are in easy attack range of Elsa, Bosch, and Zead.  The
four enemy units should be positioned around the road opening.  Anyway, strike
at them hard and fast, taking out the copters first then the wanzers.  The
copters will go down very easily and itfs much easier to take them out now
than it is to let them fly around all over firing shots and making you chase
them.  Drop some fire armor on your entire party at about this time.

After taking care of those four units, head south around the corner and start
attacking the enemies there.  In my playthroughs, Beck often becomes the
target of missiles, so keeping him behind the corner will usually protect him
from missiles, or you could use Latonafs EMP abilities if she has a backpack.
Doesnft make a whole lot of difference though.  After fighting the three east
enemies, more enemies will be approaching from the west and south.  From the
west, three enemies positioned at the west portion of the map along with most
of the enemies south of the bridge.  From the south, two more copters and a
type XX wanzer.  Therefs a sensor wanzer among the group coming from the west,
so donft lose sight of your mission to kill it mercilessly.  Your second air
strike should be around now, with enemies packed in the street and ready to be
blasted to hell.  Try to get at least 3-4 units to bomb.  The copters will
merge into the battle and are mostly a distraction, so just ignore them for
now unless you feel like copter huntinf.  Focus your attacks on the already
air-bombed enemies and then take out the healthy ones afterwards, such as the
additional Type XX wanzers joining the fray.  The battle gets really wild and
therefs plenty of mayhem to go around.  Enjoy it while it lasts!

After wiping out most of the enemy forces, all that remains should be a
missileer or so.  Take them out and bask in victory!  Youfll be able to pick
up a Vyvoz IV Rog wanzer set, one of the best sets in the game.  Itfs almost
identical to the Grille 6 Horn set, with the arms/body being 6 weight lighter
and the legs having a bit different stats.  Ifve never unlocked a simulator 15
past this, but if you find it (perhaps completing it in 10 days or less?), let
me know!

Battle:

This battle can get intense at points, but itfs relatively short if your units
are killing machines that rocked D13 and D14.  Immediately run up and kill the
sensor wanzer, or itfll bring up a bunch of nasty missiles from the Snivets.
The tree lining here makes accuracy difficult for both you and your enemies.
If youfre being targeted by snipers, hide behind the tree line, and they wonft
change their position to hit you despite having 30% accuracy or so.  You can
hit an enemy aiming directly from the other side of the trees, but any other
angles will be a hindrance.  Still, itfs worth it if you can keep triggering
Latonafs attacks and have no other options.  Make the first air strike count,
hitting a good section of the enemies along the road.  Drop some pierce armor
as well.  Wagner is no tougher than the Type XX wanzers you faced earlier, so
he should go down very quickly.  For some reason he was more intent on using
his weak ass claw than his gun, but anyway, he should be toast almost
instantly.  Prioritize your attacks on the second sensor that comes down the
road.

With the brits, send every last one of them eastward to gang up on the gunner
and sniper in the northeast corner.  After that, take on the other gunner and
sniper approaching from the west.  If you split them up, theyfll get rocked,
but as a swarm they can be pretty effective on one enemy unit at a time.

The first Snivets will lumber down the street to face off with your party.
Itfs just as piddly as Glaeserfs Snivets machine, so gang up on it and take it
out.  At this point the mission is mostly over.  Head east against the
remaining snivets and melee unit.  Call an air strike on the remaining enemy
sniper facing the brits to help esoftenf it up.

The challenge in this mission is racing through the terrain like lightning
while flinging maximum rockets.  If you donft have both Minotaur arms ready
with level 3 rocket proficiency, youfll find it far more difficult to
eliminate every enemy in the 10 or less turns time limit.  There are sensor
wanzers everywhere and therefs no way to avoid running into them and getting
blasted by missiles.  You canft take your time, just have to move at near top
speed and repair with Chaeffer as you go.

Start out blasting the initial enemies with rockets then moving in with the
other four units to finish off the front lines.  Proceed onto the third level
and do the same.  At the ramp downward onto the second level, a whole host of
enemies are waiting ? blast them all with heavy rocket fire while charging
your other units in fearlessly.  Move your units westward along the platform,
then send In/Th/Da down the ramp to take out the sniper, and the rest westward
to take out the remaining missile turret.  If you made it in 10 days, you done
good, soldier.

This is another ecarpet bomb em to hellf level that you must finish in 10
days, except you must have at least one allied missile turret alive.
Thankfully it isnft ehave all missile turretsf alive, or the level would be
much more difficult!  As it is, the only one you have to keep alive (and the
easiest to keep alive) is the one in the center that your group starts by.
Begin by bombing the two southwest groups, all 7 enemies.  Send all but In and
Th south down the ramp to kill, then east and north back up the ramp.  With In
and Th, send rockets against the south enemies that move to attack the
southwest turret.  Donft worry about blowing the SW turret up with them, as
you just need the center turret to survive, and they donft even fire until
turn 7 or so.

With those enemies out of the way, start up the ramp, taking out the two units
in front of you and proceeding all the way to the top.  Itfs possible to fire
grenades that hit all four enemies at the very top from the northeast corner
above the ramp to the third level.  Once again, donft worry about destroying
the allied turrets as long as the center one is still alive.  The faster
theyfre blown up, the sooner the enemies will come after you and not hang
around trying to hit the turrets, anyway.  Just bowl through em with more
rockets and link attacks.

You have a choice of good items, and I usually choose the jetpack, as Darrilfs
team never gets a jetpack, and this one is just cool.  The repair backpack is
great as well, though.

Whatfs the Zhukus?  Herefs an insane level where you have to destroy the three
Zhuk Is near the Paris Assembly.  The Zhuks themselves should be easy to tear
up, but the problem lies in the huge number of enemy wanzers spread out across
the level.  No less than 15 wanzers are defending the three Zhuks I, in
addition to numerous groups spread out across the map.  Since most of the
wanzers are made of mid to low level parts, itfs fairly easy to toss out
rockets to tear them up, but there are so many of them that staying alive,
healthy, and even reaching the Zhuks is a major concern.  In addition, 1-4
reinforcements per turn will randomly appear in different corners of the map
to charge after your party!

The easy way to finish the level is to take it steady, meet in the center
road, and march north.  The hard way is to make a mad dash for the Zhuks as
two separate teams and converge on the center Zhuk.  Since the hard way is
faster, thatfs what Ifll be going with.

Send Darrilfs team westward then north across the stacked building path
leading to the east Zhuk.  Send Inesfs team slightly northeast over the
stacked building path and onto the road leading to the west Zhuk.

On the first turn, drop rockets on the four center enemies as you proceed
north (two recons and two EMPs).  The enemy EMP units are a huge pain in the
ass on this level, so keep an eye out for them.  The recons are relatively
harmless, though.  On the second turn, drop rockets on the west Zhuk, and keep
moving the east team north.  Enemies will be coming in from behind against
Inesfs team which will give them a hassle.  Have Luis block the rear while
Chaeffer heals and Ines carpet bombs the enemies to break out and face the
Zhuk.  A bunch of enemies from the east Zhuk will also come running towards
Inesfs team.

With Darrilfs team, bust through any wanzers in your path and start attacking
the Zhuk with Darril and Renges.  With Thammond, move out and start bombing
the west enemies to assist Ines.  Darril and Renges should be able to take out
the east Zhuk by themselves.  Once the first Zhuk is down, the center Zhuk and
his buddies will start advancing towards your party.

After a healthy grenade shower, bust out with Luis, Chaeffer, and Ines.  Send
Ines northeast to help bomb the center Zhuk and friends.  Luis and Chaeffer
should stay behind to finish the west Zhuk off.  Send Darril, Renges, and
Thammond towards the center Zhuk, dropping bombs and causing carnage.  It
helps to hide Thammond behind one of the bushes while dropping rockets, as the
enemies will have poor accuracy trying to fire at him.  Once Darril, Renges,
Ines, and Thammond converge on the center Zhuk, itfs all over!  Aw zhuks!

The very last battle in the game.  A bit of a pushover if your wanzers and
pilots are beefed up, but fun to play anyway due to Ivanovnafs big mobile
weapon.  Shefs not Zhuking around this time!  Ah, hah hah, ok, enough of the
Zhuk jokes.. Ifm all Zhukered out.  Anyway, the general path to take in this
level is north/east across the bridge, north through the port to take on the
gunners/missileers, west across the bridge to take on Ivanovna, and then north
to finish off the two snipers.  Sort of a long snake movement across the
bridges of the level.

Proceed north/east and drop rockets on the three gunners in range.  Once the
Recon shows up, do your damndest to blow it to hell.  Take out the gunners and
then proceed north.  Wipe out the closest missileer and send three units or so
to handle the second one.  Once Ivanovna is in range, give her a good
whacking.  I suggest you wait until shefs out in the open and not hiding
behind the boxes/tower, as itfs difficult to get good link attack angles on
her that way.

Therefs not much of a trick to beating down Ivanovna.  If you have everyone
bombarding her, she wonft last more than one turn.  Once the beast is down,
run north while dropping rockets on the two snipers, then crash their party.
