    U.N. Squadron for SNES
    Extra Difficulty Setting -- Plug in the 2nd controller.  Go to
    the option screen with the 1st controller and highlight the
    difficulty setting. Hold down the A and X buttons on the 2nd
    controller, and then change the difficulty with the 1st
    controller.  You should see a new level called "GAMER".
    Methods for defeating:
    Use the F8E until you can afford an Efreet
      First board - Tank
         No weapons.  Shoot at the tank treads and dodge the rockets.
      First Air board -- Big Stealth
         Hit the big Stealth with three clusters as soon you can see
         it. Be sure the grab the (3)power-up after the first
         cluster. You have to be at least half way up the screen to
         get it. Next, hit the Stealth with bombs until it rises too
         high then launch your megacrusher. Get behind the Stealth
         and fire away, staying between the air charges and away
         from the center of the Stealth
         No weapons.
         Stay in the upper left part of the screen when you are not
         shooting the Sub.  (I think it's worth buying the bombs
         just to get the board over with more quickly.)
      Land carrier
         (Two of the small caves in the early part of the level
         contain powerup items... one that opens to the left
         contains a Smart Bomb item, and one that opens to the right
         contains a $5K star.) You don't need weapons.  Take bombs
         though. Get low on the deck.  You can shoot out the
         aircraft launchers and the rocket ports, but you have to
         change elevation a little and dodge around.  You don't have
         to raise up until the end. You will be below the big rocket
         fire. Once you have disabled everything except the big
         rocket launcher, raise up to just above the mountain line
         and fire at the top edge of the big rocket launcher.  He'll
         die fairly soon.
      Second Air board -- Small Stealths
         Bombs and megacrusher.
         Use bombs to take the guys behind you.  Get above them. You
         have to keep up or you're dead.  Use the megacrusher on the
         three Stealths.  They are weak now. Shoot-em-down.
      Minks battleship:
         This guy is hard.  Take all the weapons. (There's a $5K
         star between his stacks, and a weapon powerup on the far
         right end of the ship.) Fire at the small gun on the front.
         Raise up to the top of the screen before you get too close
         or the Unicorn will pass.  Be sure to get the Unicorn.  Try
         to hit the stacks until you get to the middle of the ship
         and then launch you megacrusher. It will knock out all the
         small arms in the central part of the ship.  Drop bombs on
         the rear big guns. Get get below the deck for the turn
         around.  Raise and knock out he back small guns.  If you
         have enough fire power you can target the the two big guns
         and still stay away from their fire.  You have to get just
         high enough.  Once the big guns are gone, fire into the
         stacks (he'll flash when you hit the right spot). He'll
         die. You don't have to knock out the front guns.
      Forest Fortress:
         Take all your weapons, just in case...
         There is a Unicorn just before the fortress, immediately
         after the ground-based missile launching grids, but I can't
         figure out exactly where it is. Get to the level where you
         can hit the front cannon and the aircraft launcher at the
         same time. You can stay here and clear out the whole front
         of the fortress. Don't move until you knock out the last
         cannon. Raise up and hit the big cannon low.  Use you
         cluster bomb or regular bomb to take out the last aircraft.
         The cannon will blow up if you hit it hard. Next, hit the
         rocket launcher. Drop a few bombs on it at the same time
         you shoot at the second large cannon.  Get the fuel-up at
         the end.  Take out the rear small cannons the same way you
         did the front cannons. Go back to the rocket launcher and
         take'em out. (When you turn around for a second pass,
         there's an Energy powerup at almost the same height as the
         small turrets.  Shoot the end one from the right, and it
         should appear.)
      SR71 Blackbird:
         (One of the rock towers contains a $5K star.)
         Take all the weapons.
         Use napalm to get the rocket launchers.
         Use the gunpod once the air battle starts.  Get below the
         Blackbird with the gunpod and go to work.  That's all it
      Cave Fortress:
         (There's a Smart Bomb item in the area with all the ledges
         and planes, shortly after the first vertical ascent.) This
         one is pretty hard.  I've only beat it once so far. Take
         cluster, phoenix, gunpod and megacrusher. Shoot down
         everything until the second ground machine gun then use
         phoenix, until you get to the vertical ascent.  Before
         entering the column launch a megacrusher.  Get up and over
         to the upper middle cavern, launch a second megacrusher.
         Use cluster until the vertical descent where you go back to
         phoenix.  Use all your phoenix up.  Too many weapons get in
         the way at the end.  There is a Unicorn at the upper right
         when you get to the one-eyed-machine.  Get the Unicorn,
         keep the conveyer belt clear with your gun and clusters.
         Shoot the crap out of the eye (up close) with the gunpod.
         The eye turns red and he dies.
    >From :tagreen@lothario.cica.indiana.edu:
    Here's some advice on the final level.
         I use phoenix, gunpod, megacrush, and cluster.  Use the
    phoenix in the early part until you shoot the red cannon in the
    narrow tunnel, make sure you are on cluster at that point in
    time to use it to take out the blue planes that come from
    behind. Switch back to phoenix. Rocks will come up from the
    ground.  You can blast them with your normal gun.  Use the
    phoenix to take out any planes that come around and the missiles
    that drop from the ceiling.  Next two tanks and more planes and
    helicopters come, you can take them out with the phoenix or
    clusters (or normal guns).  After this you fly through anarrow
    winding corridor and there is a weapons recharge, get it! and
    use your phoenix to take out more of the dropping missiles.
    Keep your phoenix and use them to take out the guns that move on
    a grid, there will be a weapons recharge/damage recharge item in
    the lower right section of this area.  Next you go into another
    narrow corridor and there is a unicorn in the cut away section
    on the top.  After this you come to a "mini ship"  I just blow
    him up with my normal gun dodging the missile that he shoots.
    Next is the mother ship. First blow up the nose-cone and then
    take out the top cannons with your guns and all 3 megacrushes
    (assuming you got the weapon recharge token)  This should have
    blown open the middle of the ship showing you the inner
    mechanics and also have blown up the top tail fin.  You'll now
    be past the ship and will want to switch to the gunpod.  You'll
    pass under the ship, take out the bottom tail fin with your
    normal gun, and then take out the first underside cannon with
    your gunpod, next blow open the underside of the ship with the
    gunpod, you'll now turn around and pass over the ship again, try
    to shoot the front of the ship to take out as many pistons as
    possible, as you pass overhead use the cluster to blow up the
    remaining top pistons and the main piston.  Finally you'll pass
    underneath again and use the gunpod to finish her off.  If you
    do it right, you won't even lose the shield that you got from
    the unicorn.
