AW2 Classic Campaign – Mission 19: Sensei’s Return

A battle is fought
Upon the shoals at twilight
Youth leans a lesson

Mission Strategy

This mission is a perfect introduction to Sensei. Copters are very effective on this map to move your troops across the water and capture strategic locations. Battle Copters will also do significant damage to most enemies other than Anti-Air.

Adder does not start with an Airport. As long as you don’t let him capture the central Airport, you will own the skies. Adder also doesn’t have any sea units, so you can retreat to the Sea when you need to.

HQ Capture: Adder’s HQ is in a great spot for a Transport Copter drop. His Bases are decently far away and may allow you to drop unseen, depending on the vision range of the units he builds.

Like most quick HQ captures, build a Transport Copter and a couple Battle Copters. Sit them above the Sea until you are ready to go. Drop your Infantry or Mech into a safe location and block the enemy threats from reaching it. Do the same the turn you start the capture, using your Battle and Transport Copters to body block the enemy. As long as the enemy can’t reach your capturer, you win.

Defeat All Enemies: Prioritize capturing the central Base and Airport early, denying air units to Adder. Spam out Battle Copters and Mechs. Battle Copters can deal with everything except Anti-Air; use your Mechs to take those out.

Push the south west front as well with Infantry and a few Mechs, potentially supported by a Battle Copter from the water to deal with Artillery. Owning the middle will give you an income advantage and pushing both approaches will eventually win you the fight.
