I just rebought this game on VC
How does one get a non-suck power score on this level?
I don't remember this mission being so bad
Do I have to solo it with andy or something

Yes.

Only what Andy does "counts", but you should still try to kill units with the side partners. Also, this means that any of your partners' units destroyed be Sturm do not penalize your score either.

One of the most effective strategies for TFB is to let Sturm capture Andy's airport and lock it with Missiles. Sturm will always try to build an air unit there, which you can immediately destroy. This will drain Sturm's funds greatly, and actually help Andy fight, not to mention give you a guaranteed kill for the power score. Try to keep Andy's units alive, make sure he never gets hit by a meteor and prepare your power score. But yeah, this map is a tough one to get a perfect score on.

Wait, if you constantly destroy Sturm's air units from that lone airport, doesn't that hurt your power score?

Or is that only applicable to the later games? (I remember the Power score was based on how many units you destroyed in a single turn vs the amount of units produced.)

In this case, it'd be beneficial, since Sturm builds primarily Bombers there, which suck up 22k of Sturm's income. If he wasn't building air units from there, he could buy a number of other ground units instead. The power score calculation is the same between AW1 and 2 IIRC, so that's not the point, it's just that Sturm building one unit is preferred above him building several.
