What's this? A game worth buying and playing for the Kinect? This can't be, the
Kinect is only meant to play crappy sports and dancing games! Yes its true,
there is a war game available for the Kinect that is worth buying (Probably not
the 50$ its being sold for but maybe 30$). No longer do we have to put up with
some Zamba dance 5000 or some Michael Jackson simulator, we get to blow things
up!

In all seriousness, this game has a very interesting story along with a World
War two feel. The kinect Controlls are solid and can work about 85% of the
time, with a little practice. The game offers a good challenge between
conserving ammo, managing the different controls in the cockpit, and staying
alive on a battlefield. Another interesting feature is that almost every member
of your Battalion can die if you aren't careful, but its also possible to save
every last one of them. The game manages to make you care about your teammates
so you try ever harder to save there lives (I can see my self playing this game
through many more times until I save every last one of those idiots).

Now for a few things before the actual guide. You can e-mail me at
ratlips24@aol.com if you find an error or you have some information I require.
Please, if you e-mail me make sure you don't use "U" as a substitute for "you"
or "4" for "for". Along with any other abbreations that kids are using these
days. One more thing, If your e-mail contanes "YOLO", "Swag", no periods, or
you make more then five spelling mistakes, then your e-mail will be blocked
and you will never receive a response (I get head aches when I read something
that was written by somebody with less then 100 IQ points). I'm talking too
you, Matt Flotman (He claims to have an IQ of 3.9 and that Steven Hawking has
a Iq of 8.0, Seriously). :)

Last thing, I promise. READ THE FLIPPIN TIPS AND ADVICE SECTION.

--------------------------------Tips and Advice [TAA2]-------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
\_____________________________________________________________________________/

I'll be referring to Vertical Tanks as VTs and Heavy Vertical Tanks as HVTs

1) The most important piece of advice I can possibly give you is DON"T FLAIL.
What I mean by this is during a mission when you're being attacked it may be
tempting to wave your arms around to use the VT controls. This will almost
always lead to the Kinect  misinterpreting the movements and the wrong action
taking place. Soo, move slowly and keep your arms straight.

2) Get a comfortable chair. This game requires you to sit down for most of the
game so make sure you have a chair you enjoy sitting in.

3) Although this games requires the kinect it still uses the Xbox controller
for many of the controls. The kinect is used to control: Changing ammo,
standing up, changing between the view port and the periscope, venting the
VT, enabling the Night vision, closing the viewport shutter, Operating the
mounted machine gun, throwing out grenades, Loading the machine gun and
loading the main cannon. The Xbox Controller is used to move the VT, aim the
VT, and fire the main two weapons or any weapons you may be holding.

4) Look for a symbol of a hand in a circle on your screen. This means that you
have to grab something with your hand or do some sort of interaction with
the kinect.

5) Make your shots count. There is absolutely no way to refill your ammo
during a mission so make that you don't miss too much.

6) The main cannon on the VT uses two different types of ammo. HE and AP. You
can change the ammo by press the button below the view port. The AP rounds
are for other VTs and HE are used for cars and infantry.

7) When fighting other VTs you need to always aim for the top part of the
leg. Its the most exposed point and will take fewer shots to destroy the VT.

8) When loading the main cannon, the AP shells are on the top shelves and the
HE are on the bottom shelve.

9) If you lack a loader in the back left seat, you will also have to crank
the engine at the beginning of the mission.

10) If you take too much damage the glass in your main view port will shatter.
When this happens you need to close the shutter by pull the lever that is next
to the main view port. Neglecting to do this will lead to the destruction of
the VT upon the impact of the next shell.

11) You can walk and move around while looking down the periscope. Just don't
try to turn as it moves way to slowly.

12) HVTs, unless otherwise stated, cannot be destroyed by firing shells at it.
Ussualy, there will be a object for you to destroy in order to take it out or
you may have to just run away and complete the objective.

13) This is the order of importance: VTs>HVTs>Tanks>Infantry. Of course this
is subject to change based on how many of each are around along with how much
cover you have.

14) Stay with and around your friendly Vts. They will draw the enemy fire
and give you more time to take out the enemy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
\_____________________________________________________________________________/

Well this is probably what your reading this guide for so I better stop boring
you. There are just a few things I would like to tell you before we continue
on.

1. If you see a enemy, shoot him.

2. This game is really linear. Most of the time I will just say "Continue down
the road".

3. None of the deaths of your crew members are scripted. This means that
members of your VT crew may or may not die depending on your performance in a
mission. This means that in certain missions you may lack a loader in
one or both of your guns, while I may have both of mine (or vice versa). Bottom
line is, you have to stay on your toes and be ready for anything.

4.Last thing, I promise. READ THE FLIPPIN TIPS AND ADVICE SECTION, if this is
your first time through the game.

Thats pretty much it. I hope you enjoy the guide.

This is like D Day all over again. First, you must listen to your team
mates. They will give you orders that will really help you out when navigating
through the mission.

After you hear that the ramp has been lowered, pull the lever on the right
side of the cockpit. Move forward onto the beach. From now on I will be
referring to the lower window as the view port and the zoomed in view as
the periscope.

Move onto the beach and zoom in with the periscope. Open fire with the AP
rounds onto the enemy cars and VTs. (The machine gun won't be of much use to
you in this mission.) Once your given the order, head down the right of the
beach rather then going forward. Keep going until you run into the group
of soldiers with the green arrow over their heads.

Zoom in on the top of the beach and take out the enemy infantry positions.
When your infantry move up, follow them up the beach. Stay zoomed in and keep
on shooting targets as they come into range. Make sure to be very thorough. If
an enemy gets behind you, you'll be in big trouble. Continue to take down the
enemy positions and move up when your infantry moves.

After you hear Cp say "The assault team is engaging hostiles inside Bunker 2."
You need to move up a bit more and an enemy VT will come out of the rubble.
Look through the view port and focus fire both your machine gun and the AP
rounds from the cannon. When the enemy VT falls, the mission will end.

Dam, that was one messed up cuscene. Anyhow, listen to the very weird
conversation with your co pilot and then head topside. Grab the gum from
Natch. You can pull up your binoculars and zoom in on the scenery by pulling
one of your hands up to your face.

When the bombs fall, sit back down and get ready to roll. Wait for Rainer
to say "Let's Go" and then pull the lever on the right side of the Cockpit.
Move up the road and your character will hump out of the bottom of the
VT. Move your arms forward and back to move across the ground to the switch.
Stop crawling once they tell you to stop crawling. Once he says "now", keep
moving up and use both hands to pull the switch down. Watch the fire works.
Surprisingly enough, this is the end of the mission.

Our objective for this mission is to destroy the enemy antenna farm. Head
up the road and take the first left. Many of the cars in this level contain
land mines to be wary of your surrounding and what your walking into. Shoot
the two cars at the end of the road and then continue on. Destroy any cars
in your way just to be sure.

Head forward to the intersection and look to your right. Take out the two
cars and head down the right of the road. After a bit off walking you should
see a radio tower on the right side of the right. Take it out and move a bit
farther up the road. Look to your left and take ou the tower on the left side
of the road. (Don't forget to clear out the infantry with your machine gun).

Head left down the road from the now destroyed machine gun. Take a right at the
next intersection. Take out the cars that are blocking the road, just to be
sure. Also, watch for land mines on the road. Go down the road and look up
and to the right, shoot the dish that is on the top of the building.

Head down the road to the left. Follow the road and destroy the dish that is
on the left side of the road. Turn around and pull up the periscope. Look on
the left side of the road and take out the dish that is on top of the
building. Now take out the one that is on the roof of the building on the
right.

There are 12 dishes in the area bu you only need to take out 6. With the
dishes destroyed, all you need to do is roam the area killing enemies until
the mission ends.

Pay attention to the opening slide show as it is important. Now it's our
job to spot the target and give a signal to attack. Stand up and get ready.
Place your over your eyes to pull of your binoculars. It will be a minute
or two before the enemy convoy shows up. When you start hearing a loud banging
noice, you will know the enemy is coming. There are multiple directions the
convoy can come from so I won't list them all out.

Now, you're supposed to "Signal" your crew, but I haven't figured out how to
do that. If you know how to signal the crew, then please feel free to
e-mail me at ratlips24@aol.com. Once you hear your crew say "You're going to
get him all distracted" sit down and start up the engine by pulling the
switch on the right. Walk up a few meters and aim down your periscope. Hit
the first car that comes by and then hit the enemy VT in the side. When the
VT falls, the mission will end.

Now for anyone that thought this game is easy will be up for a real challenge.
For those who think this game is hard, will LOADS of fun attempting this
mission. First things first, no spamming shots. Make them count or else you'll
find your self out of ammo half way through the mission. Next, AP rounds are to
be used exclusively for enemy vehicles. If you need to fight large groups of
enemy infantry then switch over to the He rounds by pressing the button
underneath the view port. One more thing, if you haven't already noticed, the
VT has a built in mine detector that will start beeping once your near any land
mines.


Start up the engine and start heading up the road. The mission really begins
when you step off the bridge onto the street below. Look to your left and use
a single shell and some machine gun bullets to take out the squad of soldiers.
Head down onto the road and look down to your left. Head down a bit and then
fire a single shell at the soldiers at the end of the road. Also Watch for
soldiers on the roofs of the building on the left.

Head further down the road and listen carefully for the sound of the mine
detector beeper. Once you hear it, stop and take out the near by cars. Put
a few shots in the ground to clear out the mines. Run on by the overhead bridge
and clear the cars on the road. At this point an enemy soldier will attempt to
board your VT. Aim the gun with your hand and shoot the enemy soldier.

Head towards the end of the street and aproach the end at a slow pace. Fire a
shell at the left of the road and then take care of the soldiers in the window
to the right. Turn right at the end of the road. Head down the road and switch
over to your HE rounds. At the end of the road you will find the missing VT.
Head up a bit more and you will find an enemy position to the left. Fire into
the building and then fire once more into the swarm of enemy soldiers. Back up
into the last road and continue to fire into the swarm of enemy infantry. Stay
calm and make sure your shots count.

\_____________________________________________________________________________/

Wait for your buddies to stop babbling and then start up the engines and head
into the tunnel. After a few hundred meters you'll run into an enemy VT. Open
fire and it shouldn't take more then 6 shells to take it down. Head further
down the tunnel your mine detector will start lighting up. Halt your VT and
fire a shell or two and some machine gun bullets into the ground in front of
you. If nothing explodes then that patch of ground should be safe for you to
walk over. I'm not sure if the mines are randomized or not, but the part of the
road that was free of rubble was mine free for me.

Further down the tunnel you'll encounter yet another VT. Make sure the AP
rounds are on and start firing at the enemy position. The enemy VT isn't dead
until it's light goes out. Go further down the tunnel and you should see a
car on the right side of the tunnel. Shoot as it does contain a mine that will
heavily damage the VT if you go near it.

After another hundred meters you will come near the end of the tunnel, marked
by some bright lights and some enemy vehicles. Quickly destroy them and head
to the end of the tunnel. If you take too long this tunnel will be your tomb.
Walk out the edge of the tunnel and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Turn around
to the left and look at your soldiers. Punch him if you want and then the
mission will end.

Head up the road and take position next to the friendly VTs. Destroy the enemy
vehicles and head up the road. So much for getting help. Keep going to where
the road ends and turn to the left.

Take out the two vehicles and continue down the road. Turn left at the
intersection and take position with your friendly armor. Destroy the trucks at
the end of the road and start following the friendly VT. Turn right at the
next inersections and use the cannon to shell the enemy vehicles.

Head down the road towards the destroyed enemy vehicles and turn left at the
first turn. Be prepared as there are three vehicles ready to rain fire onto
you. Destroy them and watch the fireworks coming from the near by warehouse.

Now to get out of this dump. Head back down the road you came from and head
directly forward until you reach a large double door. At this point one of your
crew will take a piece of Shrapnel to the abdomen. Now it's your job to pull
it out. Grab it with your hand and pull it out. (This is interesting because
I was told to never to remove the object from a person after they have been
stabbed because the object is actually stopping the person from bleeding.)

After you play medic, head through the newly opened doors to end the mission
on a very grim note.

If you want to do this mission successfully you're going to need to be fast
and accurate. Run up and take the first left next to the warehouse. Fire a
sheel into the side of the enemy VT and then head down the path past the now
destroyed VT.

Stop at the Downed Vt and walk up a few meters. Look to your right and take out
another Vt. Side step to the left a bit more and look more to the right. You
should see an enemy Vt that is in between the two Warehouses. Now move up into
the open area near the shore. You have to find and destroy the enemy VTs that
are roaming the area. Make sure not to stay still or else the ships guns will
zero in on you. There is another VT that is located behind the shippng crates
on the left of the open area.

There are a few more VTs in the area but it would be inmpossible to say the
exact location of every single one of them. Just stay away and make sure to
watch your back every once and a while.

This is another short one in terms of actual gameplay. If you want, you can
stand up and use the binoculars to watch the actions up close. Well Amigo is
having one bad day.

Once the the truck is hit, start up the VT by holding the lever on the right
and then start heading to the wreckage. Destroy both of the light towers and
then head towards the camp (Take out the normal towers as well). Destroy the
vehicle that rolls out and then walk over to the wreckage.

DO NOT try to enter the camp. You'll step on a mine and then get over run
by the enemy infantry. Once you reach the wreckage your character will exit
through the bottom of the VT. In order to get the Film you will have to move
your hand in a up and down motion until you cut your way through. Continue with
the downward motion of the rock to finish the process.

--------------------------The New Battleship [BA10]----------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
\_____________________________________________________________________________/

Start off by heading to the left past your other troops. Follow the compass
at the top of your screen and enjoy the wonderful fireworks. The worst thing
you should encounter on the way to the water is a few stray infantry men.

Once you get near the water you should enter the warehouse on the left of the
water. At this point you will be given the word that you have to find the
enemy battleship. Make sure not to stay outside for too long or else the
enemy ship will tear you apart. Head back inland towards your friendly troops.
Find the road and the head down it. There a few infantry men and a couple
vehicles but nothing you can't handle.

YOu'll encounter the first enemy VT od the level once the road opens into a
open area. Head past the downed VT and turn left at the end of the road. Clear
out the infantry and then head into the first path on the right. Blast the
door open and then head on through. Mow down the enemy infantry and then
move down to the right. There is a portion of the hull that has no armor
plating, fire a shell into it to take down the ship.

Not only do you have to load the machine gun, you also have to start up the
engine. To reload the machine gun you need to look to the left of the cockpit,
remove the magazine from the gun, and then grab the magazine that is above it.
To start up the engine, you need to turn to the back of the cockpit and then
turn the crank in a circular motion. You only have to do this
if you lost people in a previous mission.

Now for the actual bridge assault. Make sure to also listen to when the
friendly Artillery is firing so you don't end up walking into it. When told
to, turn around, start up the engine, and then pull the lever to the right of
the cockpit. Charge down the road. Head onto the bridge and stop at the line
of tank busters. Aim down the periscope and start firing shots down the bridge.

After each artillery strike you need to move up a bit more. Make sure not
to move too far up or else you will get caught in the artillery fire. The
second artillery strike will be the final strike that is sent in. Destroy the
last couple of cars and VTs to end the mission.

Unfortunately, we still have to load the gun and start up the engine. You would
think they would put some priority on getting us a replacement. Anyhow, crank
up the engine and pull the lever on the right side. You only have to do this
if you lost people in a previous mission.

Head down the road to the left and follow the arrow on the compass.

The light tower will be the first sign of the enemy position. Destroy it and
then move onto the enemy bunkers that are to the right of it. Stay in your
current position and take the couple of vehicles that roll in from the right
side. Continue to advance towards the objective and make sure to watch for
the mine detectors beeping sound.

With the security force destroyed, its time to move down to the right ammo
sump. Follow the compass to the right and take out the VT that gets in your
way. Head past the downed VT and go down the road. Take out the bunkers at
the end. The fun will really begin once you reach the front of the right ammo
dump. Two VTs will rolll in from the left and several soldiers will assault
you from the right. Head left up the hill and you will reach the front of the
bunkers. Destroy the two VTs and then run up into the dump.

The infantry will destroy the ammo dump and all you need to do is fire a flare.
Stand up and raise your right arm to fire the flare gun and end the mission.

\_____________________________________________________________________________/

Follow your friendly VTs up the ridge and then branch off to the left once
you're given a chance. Follow the Compass for a few meters and wait for the
enemy to open fire on you. Then enemy will have a fortified position on
the top of the hill.

The second you start getting fired at, head diectly to the left and keep
going left until you see a dirt path that leads up the hill. This path up the
hill will keep you sheltered from most of the enemy fire.

Be prepared when reaching the top of the hill as there are several VTs
waiting to greet you. Make sure to only peak over the hill with the top of
your VT. Also, make sure your allies are present to soak up some of the damage
from the enemy cannons. Movve up onto the level ground and take out the AA gun
to the left. Go a bit further past the AA gun and take out the tower on the
hill. Now follow the compass up the hill to the right.

Be careful as there are several tanks and a VT at the top of the hill. Take
the VT out before reaching the top of the hill. Take out the tanks and then
finish off the tower. Now it's just a matter of taking out the remaining
tanks in the area while the timer runs out. (You don't have to kill everyone
in the area, just the AA gun and the two towers.)

Start off the mission by moving up the road and joining with the friendly
soldiers. Form a firing line and start picking off the enemy soldiers down
the road. After the first camp falls, comtinue down the road. After a few
meters the engine will stall. Wait for your engineer to re-crank the engine
and then pull the lever to start up again. Go up the road and watch the not
so wonderful fireworks.

In the next camp you will have the first run in with the Heavy Vertical Tank
or as it will be mentioned HVT. Zoom in on it and start pounding away with
your AP rounds. Aim for the legs like you would with any other VT. If you can,
try to approach the HVT from the sife by going around the camp. What ever you
do, don't approach it head on. After around the fifteenth shell, the HVT
will fall to the ground.

Watch the final scenes and the mission will end.

Head down towards the air base and go down the road. Put up the periscope and
start picking off the enemy vehicles. Just stay with your friendly armor and
pick off the enemy resistance before you even enter the base.

When you receive the order to charge, charge into the base. Take out the
initial threat and the  stop at the edge of the base. Zoom in with your
periscope and start destroying the enemies that are on the roof across the
way.

With the rooftop enemies eliminated, enter the base. I'm not sure if this is
scripted or not but, a soldier might try to throw a grenade into your VT. If
he does, then grab the grenade with your right and hand and your character
will throw it out of the VT.

Move further into the base and stay a bit behind your Allies to make sure the
enemy focuses on your friends. A few more Vts will charge at you but there is
actually plenty of cover for you to hide behind. Just take it slowly and make
sure not to advance before your allies advance.

After a few minutes you'll start hearing some screaming. Stand up and remove
the hatch to investigate the sound. You don't have to do anything, just sit
back down and continue blasting away at the enemy. Be cautious at Vts will come
out from the ally ways in between the hanger on both sides of the road.

Reach the end of the road to capture the air base and finish the mission.

Note: If you can find a way to finish this mission without losing anyone then
please e-mail me at ratlips24@aol.com. This method will beat the mission but
will also lead to many casualties.

Good God this guy is good at motivating his men. Head up the hill and follow
the main VT. Move past the main gates and take a right at the fork in the road.
Be careful as you round the road as you will encounter yet another HVT. We
can't fight the HVT now so just continue down the road and head towards the
warehouse.

Take a right at the fork in the road. Keep going down the road and take a left
through the base of the building. Dead ahead you should see a large central
structure with some flames coming out of it and many pipes. To the left of the
three small flames you should see two large spheres. Blast them with the
cannon to take it out and disable this refinery.

These wonderful fireworks will mark the end of the mission.

Head up the path and go around the pile of rubble. Stay on the path and follow
your column. Stop once they stop and watch the soldier that walks up the
stairs. We're netting us a HVT!

Head up the road and follow the compass while staying on the road. You should
find a ramp leading down into a large open area filled with enemy armor. Stay
at the top and zoom in with the periscope. Wait for your allies to give the
order and then open fire on the enemy tanks.

Head down the ramp and the enemy soldiers will attempt to destroy the downed
HVT. Fire MACHINE GUN bullets into the left leg of the HVT to kill the soldiers
before they plant the explosives. After that it's just a matter of taking out
the rest of the enemies that are left.

Watch out as two fuel tracks will ram your friendly VTs coming from the left
corner and from the right corner. The mission will end when all the vehicles
and infantry are either dead or have retreated.

Our objective is too find the oasis in this god forsaken lands. We have no
objective marker so you're going to have to go blind. Head forward and a bit
to the right. If you hit a sandstorm you've gone the wrong way. After a few
minutes your navigator will offer you some water. You can either drink it
yourself or hand it too your crew member or even one of the soldiers on top of
your VT.

If you went the correct way then you should find some tracks in the sand that
appear to be from a tank. Go past the tracks and you should see the wreckage of
a tank. Investigate the body and then head directly ahead from the wreckage.
(Perpindicular to the tracks.) If you went the correct way you should see the
ruins of a village. Head over to it.

Be prepared as you enter the outskirts as you will be ambushed by enemy forces.
There are three VTs in the town. One towards the center of the village,
another towards the back of the village on the right, and one more that comes
at you from the left of the village.

Finish of the rest of the enemies in the village to end the misson.

This is yet another case of this game's evils. Multiple artillery pieces,
Vertical Tanks, and HEavy Vertical tanks. The objective is simple enough, find
the plane, destroy it, and then get back home. If only it was that simple.

Head forward over the hill and towards the objective marker. The first thing
you need to do is get your VT into the village. Without the cover, you'll get
torn apart by the enemy bombers and artillery. Rush into the town and only stop
to kill enemies that are blocking your path. Take out the artillery pieces and
the enemies in the imediate vacinity and find the downed plane (Don't stop to
kill everyone!). Fire a single shell into the plane to take it out.

Now for the hard part. You have to survive for the next five minutes until the
timer runds out. Move through the vilalge towards the hill towards the way
you came. Head up the hill and you should find a line of firendly VTs. From
the top of the hill you can pick off the enemy units below. If you find
yourself getting low then just move to the back of the hill and wait for the
timer to run out. You don't need to kill everybody to finish the mission.

Once the timer runs out, the mission will end.

Start off the mission by heading up the bridge to you friendly armor. Get into
the line and start taking shots at the units below. As always, focus down the
VTs and then move onto the rest of them.

Note: you may to nead to aim Slightly above their heads to hit them. I mean
slightly, like a few centimeters over their heads.

Once the area below is eliminated, look around to the other side of the
beidge and destroy the VT thats on the other bridge. Look around to the other
side and continue to bombart the enemies near the entrance to the tunnel. Your
navigater will try to get a better look through the hatch; make sure to pull
him down before he gets killed.

Once the next group is destroyed youll get a message that some enemies are
coming from a bridge. Turn to the right of the bridge you're on and you
should see some enemies on a bridge near the tunnel entrance. With them gone,
resume fire on the tunnel entrance.

Finish off the main group and listen for one of your crew members to say "Check
our surroundingsz". Look directly behind and you should see a road with a HVT
on it. Wait for it walk next to one of the large spheres on the side of the
road and then shoot the sphere. If doesn't kill it, try again with the second
sphere on the side of the road. If that doesn't work, then you're going to have
to die and repeat the process. When the HVT falls, the mission will end.

Feel free to stand up and view the wonderful scenery as the other guys are
blabbing on. Once given the order grab the wrench to your left and do a over
hand throw to the mechanic. Zoom in on the country side with your binoculars
and you should see an enemy vehicle coming down the road.

Now for some combat, sit down and start up the engine by winding the crank in
the back. We also have to load main cannon on the VT look over to the right
side and you'll see two shelves of shells. The top ones are AP and the bottom
are HE. After you fire a shell, you need to pull the lever on the right cannone
to eject the shell before you can laod another shell. Load a AP shell and then
pull down the periscope. Blast the VT and then deal with the few stray infantry
men. Surprisingly enough, this is the end of the mission.

\_____________________________________________________________________________/

We've got some new toys on our VT. First off, the Autocannon on the left has
been replaced by another cannon. Even though the new weapon is a cannon, it is
still meant to be uses as anti infantry. Second, the VT has been fitted with
night vision that can be accessed by flipping a switch above the vent lever on
the right. Actually, We've had this one for a while but this is the only time
its been practical to use.

Head into the tunnel and activate the night vision. You can also use your
headlights if you want. Take note that the NV doesn't apply to your view port
only the periscope. Head down thr tunnel and you'll encounter a single tank
on the left side of the tunnel. Take it out and then head further into the
tunnel.

After a few hundred meters you'll find soem flaming cars and the bodies of one
of your soldiers. Your character will automatically get out and walk over to
the body. Once given control aim the gone at the soldier and pull the trigger.
Once back inside, continue down the tunnel. You'll eventually encounter a
enemy Vt next to a train with a RPG soldier on it. Deal with the soldier first
and then move onto the VT. A bit further past the VT is an enemy tank.

Head down a few more meters and you'll encounter yet another VT. Aim for the
legs and be done with it. Be careful as there are infantry on the platform on
the right side of the tunnel. Past the platform is a tank and then an enemy
Vertical Tank (I was getting tired of saying VT over and over). Further down
the tunnel is, you guessed it, another Vertical Tank.

Ok we're almost done. Move around the next corner and you should see the end to
the tunnel. Take out the VT guarding the exit and then take out the infantry
with an HELL round. Exit the tunnel and read the following text. If you want
to save your back right loader then you're going to have to listen to these
directions. As you exit the tunnel listen to the game audio. You should hear
the sound of metal clanking, as if someone is standing on the VT. Once you hear
this, stand up and kill the Soldier that is about to throw a grenade into the
VT. If you don't do this in time, your back right loader will get killed.

This is definately one of the easiest battles in the game. Head up the road and
you'll see a HVT on top of a bridge. Get within 20 meters of the bridge and
shoot the bombs that are on the bottom of the bridge to the left. Ignore the
HVT and continue down the road.

You'll come another bridge except for this time the bombs will further to the
left of the bridge. Continue down road some more. The bombs on the next bride
will be located on the far left side of the bridge. You may need to aim
slightly above the bomb to hit the target. Now all you need to do is stay alive
until the timer runs out. That will be the end of the mission.

Head up the road and move off to the right down the fork in the road. Pull down
the periscope and hit the cannons that are on the top of the wall. There are
three on top of the wall on each side of the gate. Be careful when approaching
the fort as there is a mine field in both the road and grass. With the turrets
dealt with you can deal with the vehicles and the VTs.

When a suitable amount of enemies have been defeated you can approach the
complex. The right most road appears to be free of land mines. From the end of
the road you can cross over the grass into the main gate. Find your way to to
the back of the fort where you'll find some more resistance. As you exit the
central building a soldier will get onto the roof of your VT. If you don't want
your navigator to die then you have to stand up once you see the kinect icon in
the top right corner.

Keep going forward and you'll hit a large open field with several enemy VTs and
a HVT. Look over to the far left side and you should see two large domes. Shoot
the tops of both of the domes to end the mission. Ignore the enemy armor and
focus the domes down as quickly as possible. You won't be able to destroy
all of the enemy armor in a head on fight.

Head up the road and hug the side of the mountain. With the massive amount
of snow in your face you won't be able to see two feet in front of you. Just
look down at the ground in front of you and follow the tracks in the snow.
The tracks will eventually stop and you will have to walk over some rocks. Keep
going till you pass a area with cliffs on both sides, turn right. Your screen
will be obscured again but just keep looking at the ground and hug the cliff.

You should find the tire tracks once more. Follow the arrow on the compass and
you'll reach your objective. You'll come under attack by an enemy VT. Take it
out and head up the hill to the weather station. There you will find a single
friendly VT. Now it's your job to eliminate the enemy VTs in the area. As far
as spotting them goes all I can say is watch for the trail that the enemy
bullets leave. You can also use the weather station for cover.

With the enemies in the are eliminated you can link up with your friends at the
weather station.

of bodies and continue down the road. When you pass the clock tower your
navigator will notify you off some near by dogs. Head over to the base of the
clock tower to the left. YOu should hear what appears to be a baby crying.
Get closer until your character gets out. Grab the baby and stay still once the
gun fire starts. Once the gun fire stops, get up and make a run for the VT.

Now for a real fight. Immediately back up and open fire on the group of enemy
infantry. Look further up the road and you should see an enemy VT. Take it
down and then move onto the straggling infantry. Watch for enemy soldiers in
the second floor of the buildings. Once you move further down the road you
will encounter another VT. Blast it to bits and then finish off any enemies
in the area to end the mission.

Head down the railroad tracks and stop at the end of the first bridge. Zoom
down the periscope and start blasting away at the enemies ahead. Turn to your
left and head across the bridge. Once on the bridge, turn to your left and
try to snipe the artillery that is on top of the building. You will have to
aim slightly above it to hit it.

Continue across the bridge and follow the dirt road. Attempt to cross the
bridge and watch as it crumbles beneath your feet. Stop at the edge and take
down the two VTs across the canyon. Wit the Vts gone, you can back track to
the start and head down the right path. Take out the two VT's and then
continue down the railroad tracks. Snipe the enemy VT's that are further down
the tracks and then deal with the Vts that are across the canyon. Remember,
you may have to aim high in order to hit targets that are farther away.

The primary objective will be completed once you have killed a suitable amount
of enemy units. Afterwards all you need to do is survive until the timer runs
out. I advice that you don't get to close to the enemy complex and instead
just pick off enemies from afar.

The reason I have you go down the left path initially is that it decreases the
amount of fire you will take when approaching the right side later on.

several VTs. Take them out and then continue towards the objective. You can
skip these VTs if you find yourself being too heavily damaged later on.


Cross over the railroad tracks and take out yet another enemy VT. Cross over
another train track and you should come by a train on another set of tracks.
disable the gun on it and then continue going forward. Turn right once your
told of enemy snipers.

Disbale the guns on the trains and then charge into the structure behind the
trains in the back. Watch for the sniper that is on the far left building Head
outside to the right and you'll encounter yet another HVT. Ignore the HVT for
now and take a hard left turn. You should see two large oragne glowing panels
on the side of the building. Shoot them and the mission will end.

of the road and then take the first left. You should see a line of Vertical
Tanks and Armored cars. Fire a shell at a Vt and then quickly destroy a
armored care as the main cannon is reloading.

Destroying the enemy armor will pave the way for your engineers. stand back
and let the U.S engineers blow open the wall. Head through the hole in the
wall and enter the room to the left. That's a lot of HVTs... Head down into
the back of the room. Of course, the HVTs will start waking up (Start shooting
at them even if they don't). Starting with the one on the left. Luckily, these
don't seam to be complete yet so a few shells to the legs will take them down.
There are about 9 HVTs total.

You can use the Night vision Periscope for this mission but I personally find
it more of a hinderance then a help. The following passage should work if
you are or aren't using the NV periscope.

Head through the city, detroy the resistance, and, most importantly, survive.
Do to how dark this mission is it's going to be hard for me to describe the
route to take. Start off the mission by heading off to the right of the area.
Take out the two VTs there and then head up and towards the middle of area.
Look dead ahead and watch for the lights at the front of the enemy VTs. Patrol
around the central area of the city and the enemy VTs should come to you.

I wish I could be more descriptive but it was so dark that I didn't know which
direction I was facing most of the time. Eventially a HVT will come into the
area with several VTs. Take out the normal VTs and then start firing on the
HVT. Choose a leg and then focus all your fire onto it. There are no fuel
tanks to take it out this time, all you have to do is fire on it until it
falls. Now you can stay in the center area and pick off the enemy VTs as they
approach you.

The mission objective will be fulffilled once you have take out a dozen or so
enemy VTs and the HVT. At this point all you need to do is last until the timer
runs out.

First off, this a long mission with a whole lot of enemy forces. MAKE YOUR
SHOTS COUNT. YOu'll be looking at over a dozen VTS, several tanks, two bombers,
and a HVT to round it all of. You will run out of ammo if you're not accurate.

OUr job for this mission to guard the enemy train and make sure it passes
safely. Head to forward to the ledge of the bridge and get ready with your
periscope.

The first enemies that come down the road will be a convoy of enemy vehicles.
The barrage of friendly fire will make short work of them. Shortly after the
convoy comes two VTs will come in from the left of the tracks. Take them down
and continue to watch the tracks. Some more VTs and vehicles will come in a
large wave from the left of the tracks. During the attack from the left a
another waver will from the right. Ass always, focus on the VTs first and then
deal with the vehicles.

After you defeat the first couple of waves, CP will notify you of a incoming
enemy bomber. Look up and too the left and you should see it. Aim a bit in
front of it and a bit above it. Overall its all about luck and its unlikely
that you'll shoot it down. (it took me dozens of tries before I got it.) It's
not required to shoot it down, but if you don't want to take any losses then
you're going to have to shoot it down.

Whether you take down the bomber or not you will notified of the train
movement. A few more enemies will roam into the area. Take them out and yet
another bomber will enter the airspace. This one will come from the right side.
Fire a bit ahead of it and you should be able to hit it. (Sorry I can't provide
a more definite strategy. If you know a consistent way to take down the
bombers, then please give a e-mail.) After the bomber passes, another massive
wave of UN forces will come from dead ahead.

During the attack another HVT will come waltzing in from the right flank. Focus
your fire on one of the legs and the HVT will fall. The mission should end when
the enemy HVT falls. It's not actually on a timer.

\_____________________________________________________________________________/
Lets get our people home, shall we? Start up the engine with the leaver and
head up the road. Once you reach the top of the hill you will see what appears
to be the fortress from "Castle in The Sky" (Props to anyone who has seen this
movie). Start off by taking out the bunkers that are on the outside of the
wall along with the hill to the right. Look to the left and right and take out
the enemy VTs. Stay with the infantry and head up the hill towards the fort.
Stop by the large rock and look to your right. There will be several Vts, cars,
and a HVT. Use the large rock as cover (The rock where the friendly infantry
stops) and peak around the sides to take out the enemy armor. The HVT is one
of those defective ones so it will go down in only a few hits. With the armor
gone, you'll be free to head up the road to the fort.

Move past the main gate and move further down the road. You'll encounter two
cars and a HVT. Take out the cars first and then start focusing down the HVT.
Again, this is one of the defective one so it will go down in only a few hits
to the leg. Turn around and wait by the main gate as the engineers blow it
open.

Charge into the complex and head down the hallway. Good thing they made these
hallways Vertical Tank Friendly. You'll be interrupted by a short cutscene that
is very promising. Head up the hallway and you'll run into yet another HVT.
Focus down the legs and it will fall. The subsequent explosion will take out
a bit off the roof. Head forward and take a right at the downed HVT. Blow down
the door and read this next paragraph before entering.

Now this next part is very important. There are two endings to the game. One
is obtained by keeping Natch alive and the other is obtained by getting
Natch killed. If you want natch to live, then you need to enter the room and
angle the VT slightly to the left side of the room. Natch will jump out and
head over to the console. If you want to save him, then you need to stand up,
grab the mounted machine gun, and shoot the Chinese soldier that is in the
archway on the left side of the room. (You have to grab the gun with both
hands to aim it.) If you don't angle the VT enough too the left, you won't be
able to hit the soldier.

Kind of a crappy ending if you ask me. I was imagining a bit more of a
resolution or a grand battle rather then, "we stopped the missiles and saved
some people we didn't even see". But thats just my crappy opinion.

Congratulations you've beaten Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. Now you can
replay the missions and try to save everyone (This might come in a later
update) or you can repeat this mission and see the alternate ending.

Throughout all of the kinects bugs and screw ups, its been fun. I hope you
enjoyed the guide and/or found it helpful.
