1.0 - Descriptions an Unlock Conditions provided for all 38 Skills
1.5 - Major corrections made. Complete 100 Fields Captured Memorial Mission
      skills had previously been marked as 50 Ace Defeated in their Section 1
      descriptions. This was fixed. Also, the Complete 500 Fields Captured
      Memorial Mission section had been marked as a second 100 Fields Captured
      section. This was corrected, and the entries for those skills in Section
      1 were corrected to match as well.
2.0 - Realized the entire Memorial Mission section was wrong. The skills
      unlock in a set order regardless of the order you complete the missions.
      Since I tended to unlock the Memorial Missions in the same order just
      from the manner in which I rack up statistics, it took me 3 play-throughs
      to realize something was seriously off with that section. A forth play-
      through to figure out what it was, and then a fifth to confirm I was
      right. Needless to say, this took me awhile to accomplish; so that's
      why this version took a year to come out. Sorry to take so long.

Unlocked Through Memorial Missions                                       [S2P2]

There are 22 skills that unlock in 7 different groups when you complete various
Memorial Missions. These skill groups unlock in a set order regardless of the
order in which you complete the various Memorial Missions. The skill groups in
the order in which they unlock are:

Group #1

Blast Strike
Fortune
Heat Up
Pilot Sense
Self-Hypnosis
Spirit Surge

Group #2

Counter
Customize
Head Shot
Parry
Sky Eye

Group #3

Instant Hero
Magnetic Field
Turnaround

Group #4

Ace Killer
Pressure Hit

Group #5

Knockdown
One Man Army

Group #6

High Tension
Impulse

Group #7

Ace Pilot
Overdrive

Not all Memorial Missions provide rewards when completed, and not all of the
rewards provided are skill packets. You can find what reward, if any, a
particular Memorial Mission offers under the Mission Summary page (2/3) of the
Mission Info. (Just hit the left button while the Mission is highlited to
change the page in the Mission Info area of the screan.) Just so you know which
ones to look for, here is a list of the Memorial Missions that will unlock one
of the skill groups:

50 Aces Defeated Memorial Mission
100 Fields Captured Memorial Mission
100 Aces Defeated Memorial Mission
10 Mobile Armor Defeated Memorial Mission
500 Fields Captured Memorial Mission
20 Mobile Armor Defeated Memorial Mission
100,000 Defeated Memorial Mission

The missions are listed in the order you're statistically likely to unlock them,
but that is of course not certain. You could spam them to arrange a specific
order of course, but that seems pointless since the skills unlock in the same
order regardless of the order in which you complete the missions.

Q: How do I unlock character X and get them to L5 Friendship so I can get their
   skill?

A: See my handy dandy Character Unlock & Friendship Guide posted right here, at
   gamefaqs.com.

Q: How do I unlock the History Mission: Space Fortress A Baoa Qu?

A: Oh Boy! This is a complicated process. First, you must unlock Chan Agi by
   completing the Mission: Distorted World in the Those Who Understand Chapter.
   Once you get her friendship level high enough (do this by increasing your
   friendship with Armuro Ray) she will send a Terminal message that will
   unlock the first mission in the Original Gundam Series History Mission
   Sequence from the Federation's perspective. Complete all of these. (Escape,
   is the final one.) Once you have done that, the first Zeon perspective
   mission: Battle of Odessa (Zeon) should appear in the History Missions. In
   order to play this mission, Char and M'Quve must be unlocked as playable
   pilots. Space Fortress A Baoa Qu is the final mission in the Zeon sequence.
