    1- Introduction
    ------------------------------------------
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    (Note: I did no research for this part of this guide)
    Front Mission was created for the Japanese Super Famicom, known as the Super 
    Nintendo in America and Europe, by Square. It's a great game. Sadly, it was 
    never released outside of Japan. However, thanks to a group of translators, 
    the game is playable in English in ROM form today. You can get the translation 
    at http://go.to/fmission, and the ROM can be found at www.edgeemu.com. Be 
    warned, nobody even attempted to censor it. However, all I've found was 
    language, so unless that offends you, have fun. Another warning to those 
    shocked by foul language: In this guide, there is cursing in some mission 
    and city descriptions. However, the only real threat you have in using my 
    guide is crappy humor (half of the readers have just dropped dead after THAT 
    line), so beware.

    2- Walkthrough
    ------------------------------------------
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    This walkthrough assumed you're using the translated ROM or can read Japanese. 
    The names are from the tranlated ROM.
    The format for the guide is as follows
    ------------------------------------
    Name/# of Place/Mission
    Type & HP of enemies.
    (missions only)
    New Pilots: name, name
    ------------------------------------
    If at any point I use the name "Lloyd", I'm referring to the main character. 
    The mission names are my own, if they're the actual names (if they have any), 
    I'm as surprised as you. With that said, let's get down to business.
    
    -------------------------------------
    Mission 0 - Prologue
    -------------------------------------
    
    Just blow up the beige units. Karen dies anyway.
    
    -------------------------------------
    City- Barinden
    -------------------------------------
    
    You'll be approached by General Olson, hiring for the mercenary unit Carrion 
    Crow. Win or lose, you're hired.
    The code above is for infinite cash. Use it to get some serious upgrades. 
    Otherwise, you'll be in the Colosseum for a good chunk of the game trying 
    to upgrade.
    Talk with people, upgrade your Wanzer, and head to the Military Office.
    
    -------------------------------------
    Mission 1- Outside Barinden
    Enemies: 5 L1 Attackers in CALM Wanzers
                      Body-24  Legs-21  Arms-19 each
                  1 L1 Commander in ZOLA Wanzer
                      Body-30  Legs-24  Arms-22 each
                  2 L1 Missilers in GUST Wanzers
                      Body-21  Legs-18  Arms-19 each
    New Pilots: Keith, JJ, Sakata, Natalie
    -------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: This is your first real mission, so here's some help. Move into firing 
    range, and the word "attack" will appear on your after-move menu. Select it, 
    choose an enemy in range, and then a weapon. The game will show you that 
    weapon's range with the enemy selected. Hit A once again, and you'll fight.
    STRATEGY: Blow s#&@ up. Later on, you'll see actual strategy, but not yet.
    
    --------------------------------------
    City- New Milgan
    New Pilots: none
    --------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade everyone. Your next mission involves some L2 units, so firepower 
    doesn't hurt. Hit the Military Office and leave town.
    
    --------------------------------------
    Mission 2- Outside New Milgan
    Enemies: 3 L1 Missilers in ZOLA Wanzers
                      Body-30  Legs-27 Arms-25 each
                  1 L2 Attacker in PAVOT Wanzer
                      Body-36  Legs-27  Arms-22 each
                  1 L2 Commander in ZENITH Wanzer
                      Body-33  Legs-26  Arms-24 each
                  4 L2 Attackers in CALM Wanzers
                      Body-24  Legs-32  Arms-19 each
    New Pilots: Frederick
    --------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The PAVOT Attacker will gain a lethal rocket launcher after 2 turns, 
    so kill him quickly. Frederick can die and you'll still get him to join. After 
    killing the PAVOT pilot, you should get an Egret rocket launcher. Equip it 
    quickly, it kicks ass.
    STRATEGY: Once again, nuke `em.
    
    --------------------------------------
    City- New Milgan (again)
    New Pilots: none
    --------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade Frederick's Wanzer and head to the Military Office. Leave town.
    
    --------------------------------------
    Mission 3- Outside New Milgan (again)
    Enemies: 5 L3 Attackers in ZENITH Wanzers
                       Body-33  Legs-26  Arms-24 each
                   4 L2 Missilers in ZOLA Wanzers
                       Body-30  Legs-26  Arms-24 each
                   1 L3 Commander in GALVO Wanzer
                       Body-42  Legs-32  Arms-25 each
    New Pilots: none
    --------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Again, the NPC's (supply trucks) are expendable, Peewee excluded, but 
    try and keep them intact.
    STRATEGY: Finally, actual strategy. Send 2 Wanzers towards the group on the 
    right of the battlefield, and have the rest scatter in the direction of the 
    other enemies.
    This should keep you safe along with the trucks.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    City- Menasa
    New Pilots: Yang
    ---------------------------------------
    
    Head to the Military Office. You get a day off! Woo-hoo! Head to the Colosseum 
    and prepare to fight Yang. Say yes to her challenge, and then upgrade Lloyd's 
    Wanzer. Return to the Colosseum and fight Yang. Beat her, upgrade everyone 
    else and finish any other tasks you might have, then head to your next mission.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    Mission 4- A New Cause
    Enemies: 6 L4 Attackers in GALVO Wanzers
                        Body-42  Legs-32  Arms-25 each
                   3 L4 Missilers in HUSKY MK. III Wanzers
                        Body-39  Legs-30  Arms-24 each
                   3 L5 Commanders in GIZEH Wanzers
                        Body-45  Legs-34  Arms-26 each
    Special:   1 L40 Driscoll (unkillable boss) in TYPE11DS mech
                        Body-250  Legs-250  Arms-120 each
    New Pilots: none
    ---------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: For the first time, you'll see two things happen. You'll face a 
    non-Wanzer enemy in this mission, and also your first boss mech. They are 
    one and the same, this unbeatable mech, piloted by Driscoll, the same ass 
    who attacked you in the opening mission. At level 40, don't even attempt to 
    fight him. He'll only fight if you attack him first. A large tip: STAY AWAY 
    FROM HIM!
    STRATEGY: First of all, DON'T ATTACK DRISCOLL!!! He will kill you instantly, 
    EXP code or not. Otherwise, this mission is another kill everything. Make 
    sure to keep Paul (the NPC Wanzer) alive. Have 2-3 Wanzers head around the 
    building you start by and attack the squad there. Everyone else should attack 
    whoever they encounter save Driscoll. Not too hard yet.
    
    ---------------------------------------
    City- Grey Rock
    New Pilots: Paul (if he lived), Peewee (not a pilot, but what the hell)
    ---------------------------------------
    
    First off, head to the Bar. If Paul lived, he'll ask to join your group. Let 
    him in, and head to the Office. You'll see a new item appear, Seeker Hans. 
    Go in, watch the scene, and upgrade. The reason that I suggest upgrading after 
    the scene with Hans is the fact that you can't buy Yang equipment until you 
    finish that scene. Head to the Office again, and get a new mission. Peewee 
    (the supply truck driver from mission 3), will be driving a supply truck for 
    you in every mission from now on. You can grab items, and equip yourself at 
    the truck. It also has a weak minigun on it, so it's not totally helpless.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    Mission 5- Outside Grey Rock
    Enemies:  2 L6 Commanders in HUSKY MK. IV Wanzers
                        Body-51  Legs-39  Arms-39 each
                   3 L5 Missilers in SAM Launchers
                        Body-100
                   6 L5 Attackers in GALVO SV Wanzers
                        Body-48  Legs-36  Arms-36 each
                   3 L5 Missilers in ZIGLE 6B Wanzers
                        Body-42  Legs-30  Arms-30 each
    New Pilots: none
    ----------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The missile launchers are stationary, easy to kill, and have only one 
    life bar.
    STRATEGY: Kill them all. Again. It gets better soon. I promise.
    
    -----------------------------------------
    Mission 6- Hell's Wall
    Enemies:  6 L6 Missilers in GALVO SV Wanzers
                        Body-48  Legs-36  Arms-36 each
    Special:   1 L12 Grieg in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
                   1 L7 Reebath in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
                   1 L7 Dave in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
                   1 L6 Josie in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
                   1 L5 Ghetta in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
                   1 L5 Milligan in FROST Wanzer
                        Body-108  Legs-72  Arms-60 each
    New Pilots: none
    -----------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: You can go back to town before the mission starts. Hit left and save 
    in town if needed.
    STRATEGY: Meet Mobile Squadron 64, AKA Hell's Wall. You won't see most of 
    them again, so make the most of your time together. Their levels range from 
    5-12, making this a hellish mission. Also, you have 6 missilers to kill. The 
    best trick is to move all your men into position around their starting point. 
    Let the enemies come to you. As they get closer, you'll be able to hit them 
    with multiple men and watch them die. 
    EMULATOR TRICK: When fighting with the above strategy, use this trick. Save 
    to a state every time you have an enemy targeted (when the ground is red in 
    all places a weapon can hit), and load each time the weapon doesn't hit the 
    part wanted. This takes longer, but seriously helps with low hit % weapons 
    like bazookas and grenade launchers.
    
    -----------------------------------------
    Mission 7- Freedom City
    Enemies:  3 L7 Attackers in GALVO SV Wanzers
                      Body-48  Legs-39  Arms-39 each
                   5 L7 Missilers in ZIGLE 6B Wanzers
                      Body-42  Legs-30  Arms-30 each 
                   2 L7 Carriers in Natural trucks
                       Body-200
                   4 L7 Attackers in PAVOT II Wanzers
                       Body-54  Legs-42  Arms-39 each
                   1 L8 Commander in CLAVECIH Wanzer
                       Body-60  Legs-48  Arms-48 each
    Special:  1 L8 Commander in CLINTON TYPE mech (crab thing)
                      Body-310
    New Pilots: Hans
    -----------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Again, hit left and go to town if you need to save/upgrade.
    STRATEGY: Leave two people at the right end of the bridge to clean up Wanzers 
    back there. Have everyone else charge for the squad in the topmost corner 
    of the map. Proceed to kill. After the mission, Hans joins.
    
    -----------------------------------------
    City- Freedom City
    New Pilots: Gregorio
    -----------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade Lloyd and then hit the Colosseum. Watch the scene, then fight Kong. 
    Win, and you have a new member. As always, head to the Office for a new mission. 
    Finish anything else, and then head out.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 8- Town of ??? (i forgot to write it down, please mail me)
    Enemies:  5 L8 Attackers in GENEM Wanzers
                       Body-66  Legs-42  Arms-48 each
                   2 L8 Carriers in Natural trucks
                       Body-200
                   4 L9 Missilers in GROP Wanzers
                       Body-54  Legs-48  Arms-54 each
                   1 L9 Commander in MOTH Wanzer
                       Body-66  Legs-60  Arms-54 each
    New Pilots: Maury
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: You will see actual plot in the ending of this mission. Keep Maury 
    (the civilian) alive at all costs. The more units you have, the more ass you 
    kick per turn.
    STRATEGY: Surround Maury and slowly move outward. Kill anything that moves 
    (again).
    EMULATOR TRICK: As always, eneny Wanzers will attack the NPC first when she's 
    in range. You can reverse the trick used in Mission 6 to protect her. When 
    they attack, save as the screen fades to black. If the enemy misses, save 
    afterwards. If a non-vital part is hit, load and try again. If the same part 
    is hit, just save. Anytime the Body is hit, load.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Freedom City (again)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Watch the scene, then upgrade Maury's Wanzer. Now go save Keith and J.J.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 9- False Lead
    Enemies:   5 L10 Attackers in GROP Wanzers
                          Body-54  Legs-42  Arms-42 each
                    3 L11 Commanders in MOTH Wanzers
                          Body-66  Legs-60  Arms-54 each
                    4 L10 Missilers in GENEM Wanzers
                          Body-66  Legs-54  Arms-54 each
                    3 L11 Carriers in Natural trucks
                          Body-200
    New Pilots: Maury (again)
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Maury is an NPC for this mission. However, she can still be killed 
    and lost. This is bad. 
    STRATEGY: Rush in, blast things, run back. Repeat, with variation when 
    necessary. You may want a Wanzer or two to cover Maury's ass. But, that's 
    optional the way I choose to play the mission. ;) Actually, if you upgraded 
    her enough, she won't need backup. Just kill anyone attacking her at the end 
    of the mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Freedom City (yet again)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    At this point, you shouldn't need upgrading. Get your mission, save, and go.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 10- River Crossing
    Enemies:  5 L11 Missilers in BIZANT Wanzers
                        Body-72  Legs-60  Arms-54 each
                   1 L11 Missiler in BIZANT Wanzer
                        Body-72  Legs-60  Arms-42 each
                   2 L15 Commanders in VASA Wanzers
                        Body-120  Legs-96  Arms-84 each
                   4 L11 Attackers in AVENIR Wanzers 
                        Body-84  Legs-66  Arms-48 each
                   1 L11 Carrier in Natural truck
                        Body-200
    Special:  2 L12 Commanders in GROSTER mechs
                       Body-120  Legs-100  Arms-70 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The river will slow you down. Make sure anyone crossing by way of the 
    river has a shield. For some reason, one missiler is different from the rest. 
    It has the same equipment, as far as I know, but for some reason, has less 
    HP for each arm. Maybe it's just my copy of the ROM.
    STRATEGY: Lead a small amount of men through the river. Make sure they all 
    have missiles and shields. Everyone else should cross by the bridge. Nuke 
    everything that moves and isn't controlled by you. Most important, have a 
    nice day. (I'm sorry, I have to make these strategies look different somehow.)
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Peseta
    New Pilots: Porunga, Bobby (break up their fight)
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade, head to the Office, and watch the fight. Choose to break it up, and 
    you'll get two new members. Upgrade everyone. Save and head into a fun little 
    mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 11- The Great Train Robbery
    Enemies:  1 L15 Commander in VASA Wanzer
                        Body-120  Legs-96  Arms-84 each
                   3 L12 Missilers in ZEAREID Wanzers
                        Body-84  Legs-60  Arms-48 each
                   3 L13 Attackers in BONART Wanzers
                        Body-108  Legs-84  Arms-72 each
                   3 L13 Attackers in CROF Wanzers
                        Body-96  Legs-72  Arms-72 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: This is really fun. A small group of enemies, and a large train for 
    cover if needed.
    STRATEGY: Kill everyone. Do it quickly, and there should be 1-2 units on the 
    other side of the train. Leave them alone, and walk to the square next to 
    each open train panel. You can get extra stuff by doing this. Now kill the 
    leftovers.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Beltchka
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Learn about another member's past when you get here. Upgrade next, and then 
    head out.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 12- Welcome to Dune
    Enemies:  3 L13 Missilers in HUSKY Wanzers
                        Body-108  Legs-90  Arms-72 each
                   3 L14 Attackers in SAND VAPOR Wanzers
                        Body-108  Legs-90  Arms-72 each
                   3 L15 Commanders in HUSKY Wanzers
                        Body-108  Legs-90  Arms-72 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: A small mission. Pretty easy, if you ask me, but what do I know...
    STRATEGY: Really, do you need my help here? As J.J. puts it when you win, 
    "That was a total waste of time." This is the quickest mission you'll get 
    for some time. Just blast em.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City (sort of)-OCU Frontline Base
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Get your orders, upgrade (boy, THAT'S becoming a chore), and leave.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 13- Little Brother
    Enemies:  4 L15 Attackers in GROP SP-V Wanzers
                        Body-120  Legs-102  Arms-84 each
                   3 L14 Missilers in CICADAII Wanzers
                        Body-144  Legs-114  Arms-96 each
                   2 L14 Carriers in Natural trucks
                        Body-200
                   3 L15 Attackers in ORCSII Wanzers
                        Body-96  Legs-78  Arms-60 each
                   1 L14 Commander in S-ORCS Wanzer
                        Body-132  Legs-96  Arms-90 each
    New Pilots:
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Yeehin is vital to the plot, so I don't think he can die, even if his 
    Wanzer blows up. Yang is an NPC in this mission for 3-4 turns.
    STRATEGY: Protect Yang and Yeehin (the mystery Wanzer) with some extra units, 
    and charge into the fray. Not that bad.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- OCU Frontline Base
    New Pilots: Yeehin
    ------------------------------------------
    
    No new parts, so get a mission and upgrade Yeehin. Head to Fort Monus, this 
    time for real.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 14- Land Destroyer
    Enemies:  3 L16 Attackers in PRISOMER Wanzers
                       Body-132  Legs-108  Arms-84 each
                    3 L16 Missilers in TYPE65 Wanzers
                       Body-132  Legs-114  Arms-78 each
                    2 L10 Attackers in GROP Wanzers
                       Body-54  Legs-42  Arms-42 each
    Special:  1 L20 Kirkland in ZINC Wanzer
                      Body-  Legs-  Arms- each
                  4 L16 Attackers in DEFENSE MG turrets
                      Body-150
                  3 L18 Commanders in LONG FORCE cannons
                      Body-250
                  3 L16 Attackers in TYPE90 Wanzers
                      Body-168  Legs-114  Arms-120 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: This is the second hardest mission in the game. There's one hell of 
    a lot of one-mission-only enemies here. Unfortunately, they're the hellish, 
    pull your hair out and curse kind. 3 experimental Wanzers, a boss Wanzer, 
    4 mini-turrets, and 3 cannons. Have fun.
    STRATEGY: If you didn't save after the last mission, you'll probably be 
    kicking yourself a lot. The information in the translation "Get close to the 
    cannons, they can't hit you," is bullshit. They can and will. They pack a 
    punch, as do the turrets, to a smaller extent. You probably won't curse after 
    a turret hits you. First order: Decide whether to split up or not. If you 
    move everyone in a group, you'll have more firepower & health. If you split 
    up, you'll do more damage over a wider range. Next, destroy everything in 
    your path. Do it in this order: LONG FORCE cannons, TYPE90 Wanzers, DEFENSE 
    MG turrets, Kirkland, and then any survivors. After Kirkland and the cannons 
    have been destroyed, the mission ends (I think, I always kill Kirkland last).
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 15- Under Siege
    Enemies:  3 L16 Missilers in TYPE65 Wanzers
                       Body-132  Legs-114  Arms-78 each
                   3 L17 Attackers in PRISOMEA Wanzers
                       Body-132  Legs-108  Arms-84 each
                   7 L16 Missilers in ARPEGGIO Wanzers
                       Body-144  Legs-108  Arms-102 each
                   2 L16 Carriers in Natural trucks
                       Body-200
    Special:  1 L12 Greig in SEAKING mech (big-ass ugly thing)
                      Body-580
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: You MUST save after that mission. Hit left and go to the Frontline 
    Base. Save, and come here.
    STRATEGY: Hey, that guy from mission 6 is back! Somehow Grieg lived, and he 
    wants revenge. The good news: he hasn't gained a level since you last fought. 
    Bad news: he's piloting another experimental mech. Nuke everything else, and 
    take him last, unless he hits first. Then, drop everything and KILL! If 
    possible, surround him and then repeat the last step (ie, kill). 
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Fort Monus
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Get a mission, then upgrade. That's it.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 16- Welcoming Commitee
    Enemies:  1 L17 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
                    5 L17 Missilers in RATMOUNT Wanzers
                       Body-168  Legs-156  Arms-102 each
                    3 L17 Attackers in ZINC Wanzers
                       Body-162  Legs-144  Arms-108 each
                    3 L17 Attackers in ORGEL Wanzers
                       Body-150  Legs-120  Arms-108 each
    Special:  1 L17 Gentz in Richter Wanzer
                     Body-150  Legs-132  Arms-108 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: If the helicopter blows up, you're screwed.
    STRATEGY: Protect the chairman while covering your rear. That's really all 
    there is to it. After 3-4 turns, the helicopter reaches the landing pad, 
    pretty much rendering it safe. Have one Wanzer protect it.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Fort Monus (again)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Get mission. Save. Leave.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 17- Ceasefire
    Enemies:  2 L18 Attackers in ALGEM Wanzers
                        Body-120  Legs-102  Arms-84 each
                   4 L18 Attackers in TYPE67C Wanzers
                        Body-168  Legs-132  Arms-93 each
                   6 L18 Missilers in RATMOUNT Wanzers
                        Body-168  Legs-156  Arms-102 each
                   1 L20 Commander in PROZION Wanzer
                        Body-120  Legs-116  Arms-102 each
                   1 L18 Carrier in Natural truck
                        Body-200
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: One unit, if you use the little bar under their info, seems to have 
    a different # of HP from the others. (in this case, the TYPE67C Wanzers) It 
    doesn't.
    STRATEGY: I can't really say anything about this mission. Kill em all. You 
    should be good at that by now. If you're slow, the mission is interrupted 
    after 3 turns. Even though you're told to fall back, keep killing.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Fort Monus (yet again)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Good news: no more war. Bad news: no new supplies, you're still fighting, 
    get new mission and leave.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 18- Frontline Infirmary
    Enemies:  3 L17 Missilers in ORGEL Wanzers
                       Body-150  Legs-156  Arms-78 each
                   1 L21 Commander in RATMOUNT Wanzer
                       Body-168  Legs-120  Arms-108 each
                    3 L19 Attackers in ZEROA Wanzers
                       Body-156  Legs-120  Arms-96 each
                    3 L19 Attackers in PROZION Wanzers
                       Body-120  Legs-116  Arms-108 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The symbol on the map is of a battle, but you get a chance to save 
    and refit your Wanzers before battle. In the cinema after the mission, part 
    of the text is in Japanese, with or without the translation. If anyone knows 
    what Dr. Brown says, mail me, and I'll put your name next to the translation 
    in the guide.
    STRATEGY: Blow them up. Soon you'll go back to the more complex missions.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Fort Monus (still)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Head to the Military Office. Leave. Soon you'll be somewhere new. I promise.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 19- Protection
    Enemies:  1 L21 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
                   6 L21 Attackers in ORGEL Wanzers
                       Body-150  Legs-120  Arms-126 each
                   5 L20 Missilers in ZEROA Wanzers
                       Body-156  Legs-120  Arms-72 each
    Special:  1 L17 Gentz in Richter Wanzer
                      Body-150  Legs-132  Arms-108 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Don't waste men to help Driscoll. He never joins you, so don't worry 
    about saving him. At level 40, he can do that himself.
    STRATEGY: Waste them. Or, stay back, let Driscoll kill a large crowd, then 
    finish anything else if they ever do kill him. However, you will still have 
    to fight with this method, and will get less EXP and cash. 
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Fort Monus (again, damnit!)
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Just leave before your head explodes or some other bad thing happens. Nothing 
    changed. Same formula as the last 4 times, get mission, then go.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 20- More Friggin' Terrorists (sorry, you try making this mission 
    interesting)
    Enemies:  2 L21 Carriers in Natural trucks
                         Body-200
                     6 L21 Missilers in RATMOUNT Wanzers
                         Body-168  Legs-120  Arms-108 each
                     7 L23 Attackers in ORGEL Wanzers
                         Body-150  Legs-144  Arms-108 each
    New Pilots:
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: As you may have guessed, you don't have Frederick for this mission 
    and the next.
    STRATEGY: I'm getting so sick of these damn missions. Kill. Again. At this 
    point, you may want either a new kind of mission or the blood of a Square 
    programmer. You'll get one of these soon, I swear.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Soleit
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    New town! Yipeee! Buy new parts, do anything else you want to, and get your 
    mission. After that, head for the enemy base.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 21- Cleanup
    Enemies:  7 L22 Missilers in FAGOT Wanzers
                       Body-174  Legs-180  Arms-96 each
                   6 L23 Attackers in ORGEL Wanzers
                       Body-150  Legs-132  Arms-108 each
                   1 L23 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
    Special:  1 L23 Attacker in ALGEM mech
                      Body-300  Legs-200  Arms-140 each
                  1 L17 Gentz in Richter Wanzer
                      Body-150  Legs-132  Arms-106 each
                  1 L?? Frederick in Witness Wanzer
                      Body-??  Legs-??  Arms-?? each
    New Pilots: Frederick
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Frederick is an NPC who won't fight on this mission. His stats are 
    the same as when you last equipped him. Don't kill him. There is a very large 
    mech helping the enemy.
    STRATEGY: Send 1-2 Wanzers to attack the men on the right, outside the fence. 
    A good trick is to surround the main opening in the gate and let the enemies 
    walk into your trap. Missiles help this strategy, as do grenades (with Duel 
    or Guide skills).
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Soleit
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Talk to Olson, then pray that he wasn't serious (although at this point, you 
    could probably destroy anything they throw at you). Lose some pilots, and 
    head out.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 22- Truth and Consequences
    Enemies:  3 L23 Attackers in TYPE67C Wanzers
                       Body-168  Legs-132  Arms-102 each
                    5 L23 Attackers in TYPE67C Wanzers
                       Body-168  Legs-132  Arms-114 each
                    1 L23 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
                    3 L23 Missilers in PERZEA Wanzers
                       Body-156  Legs-132  Arms-96 each
    Special:  1 L40 Driscoll in TYPE11DS mech
                      Body-250  Legs-250  Arms-180 each
    New Pilots: Gentz
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Driscoll = bad. Kill him last, because yes, he can be killed this time. 
    There are two types of TYPE67C Wanzers here, not just one different unit. 
    A small squadron of them has less HP than the others. Gentz will be under 
    your control here.
    STRATEGY: Everyone's favorite evil bastard returns (again)! Driscoll has an 
    even bigger mech, and this time, you WILL have to kill him. Along with his 
    giant mech, you have a smaller squad and other enemies (although he'd still 
    be a bitch alone). First, kill everything else, since he runs off. Then, 
    regroup and attack all at once. Another strategy is to rush and kill Driscoll, 
    since that ends the mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 23- Deja Vu
    Enemies:  6 L24 Attackers in FAGOT Wanzers
                       Body-174  Legs-114  Arms-138 each
                    3 L23 Missilers in BRIZIAII Wanzers
                       Body-204  Legs-180  Arms-144 each
                    4 L24 Attackers in PERZEA Wanzers
                       Body-156  Legs-132  Arms-138 each
                    1 L24 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
    Special:  1 L40 Driscoll in TYPE11DS mech
                      Body-250  Legs-250  Arms-120 each
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: You get to kill Driscoll again. He's weaker now by about 100 HP. When 
    this mission ends, you get the best Computer in the game. For fun, give it 
    to Lloyd  (it makes sense, you know).
    STRATEGY: Kill Driscoll quickly, for no other reason than revenge. Then, do 
    as you please to the other Wanzers. However many people you have left after 
    Driscoll should help determine who goes where. Not that bad after the last 
    mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City-Weapon Dealer's Camp
    New Pilots: none
    ------------------------------------------
    
    I'm counting the mission and city part of this place as two different things. 
    Upgrade. Save. Equip the new Computer you got after the last mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 24- Ambushed
    Enemies:  4 L25 Attackers in BRIZIAII Wanzers
                       Body-204  Legs-180  Arms-138 each
                    6 L25 Missilers in BRIZIAII Wanzers
                       Body-204  Legs-180  Arms-144 each
                    2 L25 Attackers in PERZEA Wanzers
                       Body-156  Legs-132  Arms-144 each
                    1 L25 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
    Special:  1 L38 Olson in ELDOS Wanzer
                      Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                  2 L27 Commanders in BANYAN mechs
                      Body-450
    New Pilots: Natalie, Keith, J.J.
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: For a few turns, Natalie and crew are enemies. Don't kill them. After 
    1-2 turns, you control them again, with their old equipment.
    STRATEGY: Hold back and attack the Wanzers next to you for a few turns. After 
    you get control of your other 3 Wanzers, move them to the left of the rocks 
    near your starting point. Now that you've eliminated some enemies, charge 
    in for Olson. Next, have the 3 Wanzers attack anyone near the rocks, while 
    your other squad cleans up.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 25- Warehouse District
    Enemies:  2 L26 Missilers in PEGASE Wanzers
                       Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                   2 L27 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
                   3 L27 Attackers in TYPE150 Wanzers
                       Body-192  Legs-156  Arms-120 each
                   3 L26 Missilers in TYPE 103 Wanzers
                       Body-192  Legs-144  Arms-108 each
    Special:  1 L28 Commander in HUSKY mech
                      Body-800
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: I'm not putting the "New Pilots" listing in anymore because there are 
    no more new pilots that I know of.
    STRATEGY: Sneak along the buildings and try to hit any enemies from around 
    corners. Gang up on the commander. Blow things up.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Rupidis
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade. While in the shop, talk to the owner. Also, talk to everyone in the 
    bar. This'll open your next mission. Then choose "Harborware" to start the 
    mission.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 26- Escape
    Enemies:  3 L27 Missilers in PEGASE Wanzers
                       Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                   2 L28 Attackers in TYPE150 Wanzers
                       Body-192  Legs-156  Arms-120 each
                   3 L29 Commanders in BRIZIAII Wanzers
                       Body-204  Legs-180  Arms-144 each
                   3 L28 Attackers in TNPAH Wanzers
                       Body-204  Legs-156  Arms-144 each
                   1 L25 Carrier in Natural truck
                       Body-200
    Special:  1 L29 Commander in Armored Car
                      Body-200
                  1 L37 Blakewood in Armored Car
                      Body-200
                  1 L38 Olson in ELDOS Wanzer
                      Body-228  Legs-204 Arms-156 each
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: This mission ends is pretty easy. I am aware that TNPAH in not the 
    correct name for that type of Wanzer, however, my computer cannot make Greek 
    letters. If you know of a font that can, mail me. The address is 
    thestillmist@yahoo.com.
    STRATEGY: There is no way to screw this up. Fight your way out. The one thing 
    to remember is DON'T KILL BLAKEWOOD! He'll nuke the Armored Car next to him 
    about halfway through your first turn. After that, kill everyone but 
    Blakewood.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Rupidis
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Upgrade anyone that you haven't. Head to "Dock of No.16" (huh?) for your

    Mission 27- Sibling Rivalry
    Enemies:  4 L29 Attackers in PEGASE Wanzers
                        Body-228  Legs-228  Arms-193 each
                   2 L28 Carriers in Natural trucks
                        Body-200
                   1 L30 Commander in VALIANT Wanzer
                        Body-384  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                   2 L29 Missilers in VALS Wanzers
                        Body-240  Legs-228  Arms-180 each
                   4 L29 Attackers in TYPE105 Wanzers 
                        Body-216  Legs-192  Arms-144 each
    Special:  1 L28 Carrier in ALGEM mech
                      Body-300  Legs-200  Arms-140 each
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: Sakata will go after everyone else on this mission. I only mention 
    that fact because I needed to fill space. 
    STRATEGY: First order: move everyone towards Sakata at the middle of the map. 
    Next, choose who you want to attack where. I recommend your strongest against 
    the ALGEM group, the next strongest attack the Attackers below you, and 
    everyone else attacks the Commander and crew.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    City- Rupidis (last time)
    ------------------------------------------
    
    This is the LAST CITY! After this, you're on your own parts-wise, so upgrade 
    EVERYONE. Cheat, use the Colosseum, it doesn't matter to me, just do it. Save 
    one final time, and let's go to the option marked "Airfield" (you just can't 
    get a conventional mission in this place). 
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Mission 28- Breakaway
    Enemies:  5 L30 Missilers in ELDOS Wanzers
                        Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                   1 L31 Commander in VALIANT Wanzer
                        Body-324  Legs-240  Arms-211 each
                   4 L31 Attackers in ARPEGGIO Wanzers
                        Body-144  Legs-204  Arms-180 each
                   4 L31 Attackers in PEGASE Wanzers
                        Body-240  Legs-228  Arms-180 each
                   1 L29 Carrier in Natural truck
                        Body-200
    Special:  2 L31 Commanders in INNOVA mechs
                      Body-600
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The INNOVA mechs are a pain in the ass. Take them on with multiple 
    Wanzers at a time. This is the second to last mission.
    STRATEGY: Charge up the stairway nearest to your main squad (the bigger one) 
    and take out anything you can along the way. Have the small group only attack 
    anything that shoots first. Just shoot everything to win.
    
    ------------------------------------------
    Final Mission- Abomination
    Enemies:  3 L30 Attackers in ELDOS Wanzers
                        Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-156 each
                    3 L30 Attackers in KOPON Wanzers
                        Body-228  Legs-204  Arms-168 each
                    2 L31 Missilers in VALIANT Wanzers 
                        Body-324  Legs-240  Arms-215 each
    Special: 1 L29 Koichi Sakata in GROWNING mech
                     Body-345  Legs-250  Arms-200 each
                 1 L44 Driscoll as Abomination (first form)
                     Body-999
                 1 L44 Driscoll in TYPE11DS mech (second form)
                     Body-250  Legs-250  Arms-180 each
    ------------------------------------------
    
    NOTES: The names for Driscoll's first form and the KOPON Wanzers are incorrect, 
    but again, I have no font with the Greek alphabet. The translation calls 
    Koichi by another name, but this is the right one. You will hate this mission.
    STRATEGY: For the first part of the mission, concentrate on the side groups 
    of enemies. Next, focus in on Koichi. Afterwards, take a few turns to repair 
    with any items (but leave some). Then, attack Driscoll. Focus on the central 
    part. WARNING: Driscoll has a powerful minigun (about a 5X75 attack power). 
    He uses it once per turn, but once per part in his first form (ie, 3 times). 
    This is why I recommend using multiple people. After that, fall back and fight 
    the next form. This form uses Speed Lv3 (at least that's all he used on me). 
    Kill that and you're home free!

    3- Codes
    ------------------------------------------
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    These are all PAR (pro action replay) codes.
    
    Easy Kill- 7e06e400
                    7e06e600
                    7ea73300
    NOTES: This only works during the PLAYER TURN in the missions. Just deliver 
    one hit to an enemy's BODY and they'll explode. The only exception is anything 
    with a BODY HP of 256 or more. These have to be hit 2-4 times to die. 
    
    EXP- 7e02fe0f
              7e02ff27
    NOTES: The EXP codes are glitchy. They usually level you up to around 26-27, 
    and then stop working. I don't know why, but this is the most stable version 
    I've found yet.
    
    Money- 7e129c7f
                 7e129d96
                 7e129e98
    NOTES: This code gives you infinite cash in towns when activated.
