    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. INTRODUCTION 						[INTR]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is a Scouting guide for Front Mission 5: Scars of the War, released only
    in Japan on the Sony PlayStation 2. This is a specific guide only for the 
    game's unique gameplay featue, Scouting. This will not document any material 
    pertaining to the game's missions and whatnot so please don't send any 
    questions to my e-mail address about that. Go to GameFAQs if you are looking
    for walkthroughs of the game.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BASICS								[BASE]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For the first time in any Front Mission, you can recruit pilots to assist 
    in battles throughout the game. After getting past a certain plot point, you
    are free to Scout various characters and recruit them for usage in the game.
    Initially, you are only restricted to 4 extra pilots, a maximum of 10. After
    progressing further through the game, the maximum increases to 12 pilots.
    
    As far as the pilot and their capabilities go, it is dependent on the time
    of their appearance and where you are in the game. Pilot and Job Level,
    based on the pilot's specialty, rise as seen on the following guide:
    
    Time and Pilot Talents Guide:
    
    Time Period			Pilot Level	Job Level
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    (Huffman Island)
    Jamie Recruitment Only		4		2
    Christine Recruitment Only	5		2
    Jim Recruitment Only		6		2
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    (CVN-112: Eclipse)
    Republic of Kiribati		7		3
    Caspian Sea			10		4
    Indochina Conflict		11		4
    Fortune Medical			15		5
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    (Fort Monus Base)
    South America			17		6
    Cambodia			19		7
    Before Alaska			22		8
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    (U.S.N. Alaska Radiation Research Complex)
    Alaska				23		8
    
    One thing to note about the Job Levels are that Mechanics and Jammers get 
    a second Job, Assault, starting at 2. This is constant for the entire 
    game and does not change whereas their specialty Job will improve over 
    time. One other constant is the Status Evasion parameter. This stays at 
    0% for every pilot save exceptions to this rule.
    
    The following is the Scouting interface for any pilot:

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS(FAQ)					[TFAQ]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q: How come I can look at a pilot's status in the beginning of the game?
    
    A: The feature of looking at a pilot's status is enabled right from the 
    start of the game. Scouting them does not become available until after 
    receiving a promotion to the Strike Wyverns outfit.
    
    Q: Hey, I traded my Assault pilot for a Gunner pilot, but I can't Scout them
    again! What gives?
    
    A: Scouting is a one-time deal only. Once you trade out a pilot, you can 
    never re-Scout them in the game. The only two pilots that can never be taken
    out would be Walter and the pilot in the second slot, a Mechanic. This is 
    due to plot and character development reasons.
    
    Q: I wanted to Scout a pilot but after I finished a mission and went back
    to base, they weren't there! Why is this?
    
    A: Each pilot can only be Scouted during certain time periods within the
    game. For a good number of them, they can only be Scouted in only one
    time period. 
    
    Q: Are there any special reasons to assemble certain squads from Scouting?
    
    A: Yes, there are Scouting bonuses for assembling certain squads and can be
    done any time in the game. Refer to the Scouting Bonuses section for more
    details.
    
    Q: What does the 'S' in some of the pilots stand for? Are they special or
    something?
    
    A: Yes, they are special pilots but their purpose will not be revealed in 
    here. Play the game to find out more.
    
    Q: How come I can't Scout certain pilots? I can see their status but when I
    try to Scout, they refuse and speak back. I take it you have to meet certain
    conditions to Scout them?
    
    A: Yes, some pilots can only be Scouted after meeting certain conditions.
    
    Q: Any special pilots?
    
    A: There is a character from Front Mission 4, but their name will not be 
    displayed here. Check the Scouting List and you will find that pilot...

    S-TYPE PILOTS							[STYP]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Pilots with an 'S' in their portrait are known as S-Type pilots. These are
    rare and special pilots that have advantages over normal pilots for plot 
    reasons. Play the game to learn why they are special since the point of this
    guide is for the Scouting. 
    
    S-Type pilots gain 2 exclusive skills: one that is exclusive to all and one
    more that is Job-exclusive. One is EMP Recovery, which all of these pilots 
    get. Because of this, their Status Evasion ratings are set to - 10%. The 
    second is based on their Job specialty. More can be found in the main 
    FAQ/Walkthrough by the author on GameFAQs.
    
    Here are the list of playable S-Type pilots:

    SCOUTING CONDITIONS						[SCCO]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are a few pilots that cannot be Scouted easily. Without a doubt, these
    pilots require certain conditions to be met before they can be Scouted.
    
    Darril Traubel
    Conditions: See the main FAQ/Walkthrough by the author on GameFAQs...
    
    Laura Kimmel
    Conditions: Upon returning to the Eclipse after Mission 10, do not speak to
    her more than three times. Doing so enables Warlus to appear in the Hangar
    but Laura cannot be Scouted. An RP bonus may be gotten in exchange though. 
    Upon returning to the Eclipse after Mission 15, talk to her then to Jeff for 
    4 RP.
    
    Julius Bancroft
    Conditions: Watt Turner must be in the active squad upon time of Scouting.
    
    Lily Pho
    Conditions: If you speak with Lily, do not choose the second option. This 
    makes her unable to be Scouted.
    
    Cecil Bernadotte
    Conditions: Julius Bancroft must be in the active squad upon time of 
    Scouting.
    
    Duke Takahashi
    Conditions: Watt Turner, Julius Bancroft, and Cecil Bernadotte must be in 
    the active squad upon time of Scouting.
    
    Karl Gibson
    Conditions: Active squad must consist of ace, veteran pilots only.
