Classic Campaign – Mission 1: Tank Ops!

Olaf has occupied Coral Fortress with a prized unit in tow. Take this opportunity to show Andy the ropes… and tanks!

Mission Strategy

This mission is mostly straightforward until you face the Medium Tank at the end. Focus on keeping your units alive and topped off, prioritizing good match ups and attacking from defensive positions. There are two effective strategies to win this mission:

  • HQ Capture: You can get an Infantry into position south of the enemy HQ that is just out of range of the Medium Tank. This means you will only need to block the Medium Tank from attacking your Infantry for one turn. This can be done several ways:
    • Moving a Mech or Infantry onto the bridge from the river
    • Dropping an Infantry with an APC to block the bridge
    • Sacrificing your APC or Tank to block the bridge
    • Surrounding your HQ capturing Infantry
  • Defeat the Medium Tank: You can kill the Medium Tank with the right units at high enough health, namely your Artillery, Tank, and two Mechs. Pull the Medium Tank into range of your units by putting an Infantry unit in range. Weaken it with your Artillery. Finish it off with your Tank and Mechs
