                               WALKTHROUGH
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Larcus Incident
     The game begins after you have selected a your name and your callsign. 
You are thrust right into your first battle. Karen (your girl) is being 
chased by Driscoll, a high ranking military officer in the USN. You must 
save Karen and defeat the USN mechs. You have assisting you Sakata and an 
unnamed OCU solider. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 1
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Missliers               4 Attackers
                            1 Driscoll 
     Notes: 
        1.)      No matter what you do you cannot save Karen. Her mech is 
                 destroyed and she is caputred. 
        2.)      After you destroy the 4 mechs Driscoll blows up the 
                 warehouse. The USN blames Roid and then OCU and the USN 
                 begin the second Huffman dispute. The story picks up a 
                 year later when Olson recruits you for the OCU. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            The city of Barinden

        1.)      Here in the city of Barinden you meet Olson in the 
                 coliseum. You will have to fight someone so Olson can see 
                 how good you are. It doesn't matter if you win or lose the 
                 fight.
        2.)      After the fight you will be on the city main menu. Go to 
                 the Military Office. Here you will talk to Olson and he 
                 will ask for your help. Choose YES. 
        *        Natalie is introduced and is now part of your unit.
        3.)      You can go around Barinden and do what you want. Be sure 
                 to upgrade your Panzer!
        4.)      When you are finished in the city SAVE your progress and 
                 go to EXIT.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 2
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Missliers               5 Attackers
                            1 Commander 
      Notes:
         1.)      2 Panzer pilots, Keith and J.J. are surrounded by USN 
                  Panzers. Before they get clobbered, you Sakata, and 
                  Natalie are air-dropped in to save their necks.
         2.)      Keith and J.J are introduced and join your unit right 
                  away. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       To the city of New Milgan    
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 3
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missliers               5 Attackers
                            1 Commander 
      Notes:
         1.)      Fredrick is introduced here. He is a reporter covering 
                  the plane wreck. He begins as a NPC (non-player 
                  character). This means he will act on his own, which is 
                  not good. You must attempt to keep him from getting his 
                  Panzer destroyed. Try using flash grenades on him to keep 
                  him from moving. He will run right into the enemy if you 
                  dont stop him. But dont worry, even if his Panzer is 
                  destroyed, he is still alive.
         2.)      Before you actually begin, you will go to the unit select 
                  screen. Here you will choose which mechs will go with you 
                  on this mission (see what to do when you want to go on a 
                  mission, in the gameplay section).
         3.)      As soon as you begin this mission, go and protect 
                  Fredrick. Attack the mechs that attack him, ect...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Back to the city of New Milgan
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 4
     Enemy Units:
                            4 Missliers               5 Attackers
                            1 Commander 
      Notes:
         1.)      Pewee is introduced in this mission. He is apart of a 
                  convoy that is attacked by USN mechs. You must protect 
                  the trucks. They must not be destroyed!
         2.)      The trucks will pull off the road and drive into a dense 
                  wooded area. Use this to your advantage. Put your mechs 
                  in places where enemy mechs can't get around you because 
                  of the forest. Block thoes enemy units!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           To the city of Menasa
        1.)      In the city of Menasa you are challenged (Olson asks you) 
                 to fight Yang, a Panzer Ace. You should go to the Coliseum 
                 and fight Yang. You can choose which mech should take her 
                 on. You must win to get her to join. If you loose, fight 
                 her again until you win.
         2.)     Go to the bar and talk to Alder, he challenges you to a 
                 fight in the Coliseum. If you win he will join your team.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  Greyrock
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 5  
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missliers               5 Attackers
                            3 Commander               1 Driscoll 
      Supply Trucks: 1
      Notes:
         1.)      Driscoll is in this mission! Be careful. Don't advance 
                  toward him or he will attack. If he doesn't attack he 
                  will leave after all the other mechs are destroyed. If he 
                  does attack, forget it. He is WAY too powerful. He will 
                  wipe you out. Remember to always save in between 
                  missions.
         2.)      Paul is introduced here as a NPC. You should try to 
                  protect him. Don't worry if you can't (I never can). He 
                  almost always gets too far ahead to catch up to him and 
                  gets blown up.      
         3.)      The supply truck leaves after a little while offering no 
                  repairs for the enemy troops.
         4.)      When you have destroyed all enemy mechs, Driscoll blows 
                  up some buildings nearby attempting to recreate the 
                  disaster that shamed you in the Larcus Incident. Then the 
                  mission is over and Roid thinks back to the past and the 
                  way Driscoll trapped him before.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          To the city of Greyrock
        1.)     Olson tells you to look for a pilot named Hans. There is a 
                new option on the city menu now called Seeker Hans. When 
                you go here you will talk to Hans. When he asks to join 
                choose YES. He doesn't go on missions for awhile though.
        2.)     Now go to the military office and Olson will assign Peewee 
                to your unit. Peewee drives the Supply Truck. When in 
                battle when you run out of missles, need items, or you get 
                an arm or leg blown off and need it repaired, you will need 
                to go to the supply truck. To reload missles, etc..., when 
                in battle place your mech along side or infront or behind 
                the supply truck. On your next turn, press the B button and 
                choose SUPPLY. You will then go into the setup screen and 
                here you can get supplies or change out mech parts. Your 
                missles are automatically refilled when you enter the setup 
                screen. Your destroyed arms and legs are automatically 
                repaired when you enter the setup screen, however, they 
                will need to have a repair used on them to refill the HP.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 6
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missliers               6 Attackers
                            2 Commander               3 Missile Launchers
     Notes:
        1.)      In this mission you need to destroy three missle launchers 
                 before OCU airplanes pass overhead. You have 10 turns in 
                 which to do this. Don't worry about the enemy Panzers at 
                 first, go directly after the missle launchers.
NOTE!!!: When this mission is over and the main map is shown, dont press 
the A button! Press left or right on the control pad until the line is 
pointing back to Greyrock. Then you can press the A button. If you don't do 
this you will go to the next mission right away and you wont be able to 
restock on items, save, ect..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Back to the city of Greyrock
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 7
     Enemy Units:
                            6 Missliers               6 Red Panzers
      Notes:
        1.)      Here are some really tough Panzers. They are huge and 
                 packa punch! They are the "Hell's Wall" squad (see 
                 character descriptions for more info). My suggestion is to 
                 stay put and let the enemy come to you. Use Missiles! For 
                 most of this misison, I used missiles only. Remember to 
                 use Flash Grenades too on the tough guys so they will 
                 loose turns.
NOTE!!!: When this mission is over and the main map is shown, dont press 
the A button! Press left or right on the control pad until the line is 
pointing back to Greyrock. Then you can press the A button. If you don't do 
this you will go to the next mission right away and you wont be able to 
restock on items, ect..

        1.)      In this mission you are fighting in the city. Stay put 
                 and let the enemy come to you. 
        2.)      When you attack the boss mech, don't fight hand to hand 
                 or use a gun! Stay away from it and use missles. Be sure 
                 to use a flash grenade on it each turn to keep it from 
                 attacking.
        3.)      When the mission is over Hans shows up and from now on he 
                 is in the unit.

                           To the city of Freedom

                 with you for a couple of missions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 10
      Enemy units: 12
      Supply trucks: 3
      Notes:
        1.)      USN mechs are surrounding a OCU base (or their own base?) 
                 You can only fight with 8 mechs from your unit. I suggest 
                 you take the best mechs with you.
        2.)      Maury is an NPC again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Back to the city of Freedom

        1.)      After you go to the military office 2 mechs start fighting 
                 in the city. You can choose to battle one of them to stop 
                 the fighting. Choose YES when prompted. When you win 
                 Bobby and Porguna will join your unit.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 12
      Enemy units: 12
      Notes:
        1.)      Here you are going to sabotage a rail road line in order 
                 to capture something from the train. Hans sets the 
                 explosives and you watch the train try to escape but fail. 
                 Enemy mech come out of the train to attack. You have 8 
                 turns to get to the caboose.
        2.)      There are supplies infront of most of the doors of the 
                 train. Just have your mechs stop infront of the train 
                 doors and you will pick up some weapons and supplies.

        1.)      Yeehin is introduced as an NPC and Yang is an NPC for the 
                 first couple of turns. You must protect Yeehin. Your best 
                 bet is to corner him in so he can't move.
        2.)      The enemy mech won't move for the first couple of turns, 
                 this is an exellent oppurtunity to attack the misslers 
                 that are at the top (North) of the map.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Back to the O.C.U. frontbase

Mission 15
      Enemy units: 12
      Large cannons: 3
      Small cannons: 4
      Notes:

                 often. Use flash grenades to make the cannons miss turns.
NOTE!!!: When this mission is over and the main map is shown, dont press 
the A button!  Press left or right on the control pad until the line is

                 join forces with Driscoll to stop him!!!!!! Driscoll plays 
                 as an NPC. Once the misison is over, Driscoll is against 
                 you once again.
        2.)      Gentz tells Roid that the factory explosion was a setup. 
                 Sakata industry moved the stuff inside the factory and 
                 replaced it with explosions. They did this so that Sakata 
                 industry can use brains of dead and alive prisoners of war 
                 into computers with the help from Driscoll and his gang.

      Notes:
        1.)      Fredrick if fighting on Gentzs' side. I'm am not sure why, 
                 but he didn't attack me during battle so I didn't attack 
                 him.
        2.)      Stay up at the top of the moutians until most of the units 
                 are destroyed. Don't destroy Fredrick's mech.

                 about the past when Driscoll shows up again!

                 points! The most I have ever seen!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               To Harborware
        1.)      Here you should save your game first and then go to 
                 Rupidis.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           To the city of Rupidis
        1.)      Here in order to go to the next level you will have to go 
                 to the shop first. After you have done your upgrading, you 
                 should equip items and then go back to Harborware. This 
                 will take you right to the next mission.
      TIP: In the collessem at rupis there is a guy named rocks you can get 
           40,000 gold if you equip really crapy stuff and a good missle 
           (the egret or something light) if you do this for a while you 
           can get 1,000,000 or more. Contributed by: Seth Connors

If you wish to help with this walkthrough, let me know. I would like to add 
  here how many Misslers there are in each level and how many unit members 
  you can choose each level to battle with you and other small facts like 
                  that. E-mail me if you want to do this.
   Also, if you know more in depth as to Front Mission's storyline let me 
                                   know.
