The reason I've written this guide is because those of you who have played the
game (and reading this) will know how confusing some missions and achievements
are so this has been written to clear a few grey areas up.

Another great guide is http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/932514/49494

Written by the Rebirth. Ironically I came across this after I'd got to stage 11
oh well my version clears a few thing up anyway and includes the Downloadable 
content.

If you have any question about the guide drop me a line at AVenyet@gmail.com

or sent me a message on XBL gamertag is Avenyet (surprised?)

Hints and tips:				[is0]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A few things that might help you to get some of the harder achievements

All achievements can be done on easy mode (unless otherwise stated).

Some achievements will require better weapons to obtain to wait for the 
Second play through.

Leave about 5 mission targets (or 2 warship targets) until there are no other
Enemies to destroy this will make it easier in getting some sub objectives 
as well as helping to rack up your warplane count.

Choose a missile system with a large number of lock on over range and power.

If new enemies appear on the radar it is easier to kill them while they are
still information it’s even possible to take them all out (9-12) with one round
of missiles

Listen to the radio messages for important mission information such as when 
Raymond is in trouble

Don't Worry about friendly fire I recommend telling your wingman to break way 
ASAP to avoid hitting her with a few nukes

Fighting the Night Ravens is easier than it looks there’s a trick when on a one
on one with the main mission target wait for him to charge you and fire a few 
Anti war ship missiles at him one will hit and kill him fastest time I've killed
him was about 6 seconds.

Turn Auto save off and save on a different slot for each level if you want all
the mission achievements without having to play through again.

   Its in the cargo ships way so kill it when its gets closer)

9. All Transport Survived
   (This is easy just kill everything these ones don't seem to die)

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

First take out those enemy warships these can be a pain if you don't. Next
just take out all the mission targets and any other targets you lock onto
Tip: when new enemies appear attack them while they are still in formation
this will allow you to take out most of them without even breaking into 
a sweat.

Mission Part 2

First all Take out that Destroyer this will sink lady 3 if you don't. 
Note: theres also another destroyer 74.0 units away but leave this for now.
now quickly take out as many figthers as you can in the area before the 
attackers arrive. The attackers (cyclops) will come from cargos ships
left side take them out while they are in formation. After this keep 
taking out the enemies near the cargo ship. Most importantly if you
want the achievement you will need to protect lady 3 more than the others
because this one seems to sink very quickly. 

other tips for this listen carfully to the radio message and try and take 
out the attackers before they reach the cargo ships. 

When you reach about half way (radio message will tell you this) the second
destroyer shold be about 30 away once this reaches about 20 go take it out
otherwise this will sink lady 1

just keep this up until they escape. Good luck this mission is hard first
time round on any setting.

if lady 3 is sunk don't panic just go for the achievement on the second
playthrough when you've got some better weapons.

part 3

now this can be hard and easy.

The easy method is wait for about 3 mins thne take out the mission target
this you only need to take out one enemy ace.

the harder way is to take out the mission target (once it appears) and then
take out the second one right after, which can be hard.

note if you almost kill the first mission target he might retreat which
means you have to fight both of them without getting the sub Objective...

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective
--------------
Destroy enemy targets

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Destroy all enemies targeting Bird flight
   (Just destroy everything and you'll probably get this without thinking
   you will normally get the message 
   "Katana! If you want to help go right ahead")

Mission part 2

2. Destroy the Hellfires (yellow marker)

3. Destroy the Hellfires in a short time

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

This mission takes a while basically its the same as the cargo ships but easier
just keep shooting down anything you lock on to until there all gone. remember
take them out when in formation for quick kills.

Mission Part 2

Take out those destroyers before they do some seroius damage. next just take 
out the figthers just like in part 1. Best thing to do is to take the figthers
that a far out and let bird flight kill the ones closer.

You will need to get an S rank in this mission for this achievement. This can 
be done either easy and you require all sub objectives and finish the mission 
quickly. or you can do it on hard and you probably get it by just doing the 
mission at a steady pace.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Stage 6: 	Rendezvous Planet	[is6]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective
--------------
Sink the enemy fleet and all other mission targets

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Destroy all enemies

2. Destroy the Hellfires (yellow marker)

3. Destroy the Hellfires in a short time

Mission part 2

4. All Allied ships survived

5. Both escort destroyers survive

Mission part 3

6. Rescue Raymond 

7. Ally cruiser survived
  
8. Destroy all enemies

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

Just take out the missions target don't worry about the other ones they'll just
fly past you anyway.

when the hellfires show up its up to you if you want to kill them but you can
just leave them and kill the mission targets for a quick win. If you do go 
after the hellfires thy can be a pain there just like figthing the night
raven aces just a bit easier.

Mission Part 2

This is hard you need to take out the enemy fleet and all the figthers within
the time limit. ok as before just go after the fleet right off then take out
the figthers. Note: keep an eye on your armour and shield if you're not
careful you can die here in seconds. Note 2: theres a tanker as well as the
carrier on this so use both for a restock and repair. One good thing about
this part is Yoji pops in and protects the Actopolis for you and he's good
so just let me do that and help him whenever near.

Mission Part 3

Go for the Battleship first these things might be big but they sink pretty
quick just think of them as 2 cruiser stuck together and trust me there
are bigger things to kill later. To take down the Battleship a Charged
Y attack (to level 1) should do it if not 2 of them will. as soon as thats
sunk take out the other ships. BUT before you kill the last one go save
raymond he should be flying around somewhere near you (do this only
if you need the achievement)




-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 50G---------------------------

                              Soldier's Charm Amulet

Given to you by Raymond as a token of his trust.

ok this one is easy to get you just need to wait until Raymond get shot and
complains about it. After this find him (he's normally in-between the 2 fleets)
and shoot down everything near him. There will be allot of enemies after him so 
just keep sinking warplanes until he thanks you.

Word of warning stay away from Raymond until he gets shot I've managed to 
the whole mission without him being hit by total accident.

2. Destroy the Hellfires (yellow marker)

3. Destroy the Hellfires in a short time

Mission part 2

4. Destroy all enemies 
   (don't forget the ones that flanked you, use the radar)

5. All allied ships survived 

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

Oh hello Yoji the good pilot is not rhino 4 bonus.

ok once again go for the fleet taking out and figthers on the way the quicker
you take out the carriers and the destroyers the better once the fleet has be
flattened start taking out the figthers. You don't need to worry about
protecting anything but watch out for Anti aircraft fire because this stuff is
deadly on this stage. 

once again those damn Hellfires will shown up lead by the even more annoying
wayne once again its up to you if you want to kill them my advice is forget them

Mission Part 2

Survival mission YAY! ok now just work from left to right and take them out one
by one (don't worry about the figthers).

At some point in the mission you will hear radio messages about being flanked
don't worry about them until you go a restock you will see a few ships floating
around the acroplics just shoot the down (theres a few carriers and destroyers
i think). Note there are a few battleships in here as well just be careful near
them.

Just keep this up until either you kill everything or the mission ends

-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 20G---------------------------

			       White Griffons Patch

Awarded to the commander and pilots of the White Griffon Squadron when it is 
formed.

you get this at the end of the level nothing is required to achieve it

Stage 8: 	Fortress of ADAN	[is8]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective
--------------

Destroy all mines and the enemy fleet

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Defeat the Guilty Roses

2. Defeat the Guilty Roses in a short time
   (this is a hard one I managed to do this by firing a few anti warships 
   missiles at them then finishing them off with a few normal missiles)

3. Allied Cruiser Survived

4. Destroy all enemies
   (just leave a few mines at the end then clear everything else out.

Mission part 2

5. Destroy all enemies

6. All allied ships survive

7. Allied cruiser took no damage 
   (same as before just ignore it)

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

I hate this mission just blow up the mines don't bother with the figthers

you might even finsih this section before the Guilty roses appear. but if you
do fight them these are evil you need to fire a few rockets at them while 
they're still in formation then use missiles to finish them off. so aim 
carefully

Mission Part 2

Another easy section just take out the mission targets for a quick win you 
don't need to worry about the figthers on this so enjoy the easy ride the
next mission is much harder.



-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 30G---------------------------

                               TCAF Jupiter Medal

Awarded for bravery beyond the call of duty during withdrawal of the allied 
fleet.

To get this it has been said you need to get an S rank but I managed to get this
with an A rank I think you just need to beat the mission in a fast time. I did 
this on easy so try it a few times if you don't get it


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Stage 9: 	Abandoned Planet	[is9]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective
--------------
Destroy all marked enemies.

Then survive until the mission ends (approx 15 mins)

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. All ships Survive

2. Destroy all enemies in a short time

Mission part 2

3. Defeat the Guilty Roses

4. Defeat the Guilty Roses in a short time

5. All ships survive

Mission part 3

6. Destroy the enemies hiding in the terraforming unit

7. Destroy all enemies

8. All allied ships survive

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

Another simple part of a mission just kill everything. The only thing you need
to watch out for are the AA Frigates but once there gone this is easy.

near the end you will meat a new Attack type called Gargantua these can be a 
pest because they are quicker than the cylops and they can dodge missiles better
oh well more fun then.

Mission Part 2

First as always take out the warships once these are gone just kill whatevers
left you don't need to kill all the mission targets this time you just need
to survive you'll see why in part 3. ok Now its the Guiliy Roses again. 
just use the same tactic as before (the seem to be harder to kill this time)
and good luck.

If that tactic doesn't work there is this tactic wait until they're on top 
of you now double tap RT and speed away from them (About 5.0-7.0) do a
quick flip and unload a few missiles into them while flying back through
them. this should kill them pretty quickly.

Mission Part 3

Now the fun begins take out the Warships just to the left of the terraforming
unit. Note: theres a battleship in there as well along with a carrier. 
Note 2: after sinking these ships restock and go behind the terraforming unit
you will find another fleet hiding here sink these (if you have managed to
survive the whole mission without dying once you will net an achievement by
sinking all the warships thoughout this stage approx 25). another important
thing to remember is you can't aim at this hidden fleet yet but as soon as 
you hit one of them you can aim at them. 

after sinking these your fleet should start running away now you just need to
protect and survive (more survive really)



-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 40G---------------------------

                              Furious Pursuit Badge

Awarded for diligently shooting down large numbers of enemy ships.

ok this achievement is a hard one you will need to shoot down 25 Warships and 
120 warplanes (might be less but this is what I got it on) and the rank isn't
important I got it with an A rank. So for this, just shoot everything down until
you get to part 3 then go for the Warships first on the left (don't forget the
AA frigits) go restock then fly behind the terraforming unit to find another 4
warships sink these then go and kill everything else and you should get it. 

a word of warning be careful near the warships if you die here you will need to 
start again from part 1.

Stage 10:	Traces of the Nightmare	[is10]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective

Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Destroy all enemies

2. Defeat Magras in a short time

3. Defeat Magras without taking any hull damage 

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

The same as with the guilty roses fly through them firing missiles then quick 
flip and repeat. Using this method you'll take out Margras without even
thinking.



-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 30G---------------------------

	                   Solo Aerospace Combat Award

Awarded for descending into the atmosphere and engaging in combat alone.

This is an easy one the trick to this will be to fly through them so that they
will all bunch up do a quick flip and shoot them down with as many missiles as 
you can lock on to them as you fly back through them. Fly backwards and forwards
until you take Magras down by then you should have shot down enough.

Stage 11:	Flaming Clouds		[is11]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

--------------
Main objective
--------------
Protect the useless Acropolis

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Defeat the Guilty Roses

2. Defeat the Guilty Roses in a short time

Mission part 2

3. Destroy the enemy Carrier hidden in the clouds
   (to the left of the fleet)

4. Destroy all the fighters that take off from the carrier

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

Another protect mission. ok same as always take them out while they're in 
formation. at some point the Guilty roses appear (Details on this below) just
leave them for now becasue on this mission you will either run out of time or 
the Acropolis is shot down so go for mission targets and go for the
achievement when you've got some better weapons.

Mission Part 2

for a quick win take out just the mission targets. it doesn't matter which you
attack first just take them out. as you start to the left of the fleet hidden
in the clouds is a carrier sink it if you wish.


-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 30G--------------------------

             		   Operation Nebula Blaze Award

Awarded for fulfilling duty and fighting bravely in this difficult operation.

basically you just need to survive, which is easier said than done. on the first
play through.


-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 40G--------------------------

                 	       Guilty Roses Patch

Awarded for repelling the enemy Guilty Roses Squadron.

Destroy the Guilty Roses on this level to get this achievement. They will appear
right after the radio message "what is an enemy carrier doing here?” This one
can be tricky because the Acropolis sinks on this level quite easy and going 
after the Guilty roses can result in either a time up or the Acropolis sinks.

so if you have time to take them down do so if not do it on a later play 
through.

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

For an easy win take out the Super Battleship then take out the second one,
so two kills mission complete. if you take out the fleet first the second
Super Battleship won't appear so its your call. once again don't worry to much
about the figthers unless you fancy some target practice.

-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 30G--------------------------

         		    Super Battleship Slayer Patch

Awarded for shooting down the second S battleship supporting the enemy fleet.

For this you need to be quick I recommend doing this later when you have some
better anti Warship missiles. but when you do you need to belt it to the 
S battleship and sink it, forget about everything else. As soon as you do that
they will praise you then a new one will jump out. Now sink this one and you're
done. simple no? (good luck...)

job

-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 40G--------------------------


				Night Ravens Patch

Awarded for challenging and eradicating the enemy Night Raven Squadron.

The easiest way to get this is to do it on hard because you get an S rank on 
it without getting any subjective. Note on Easy and Normal it appears that 
you can only get a Max rank of an A (well I could only get that)

5. Allied battleship survived

6. Battleship escort survived

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

Head for the Super Battleship this is your first target it location should be
right in front of you about. Once you've taken this out focus on the other 
battleships (one's near the Acropolis) don't forget to take out any figthers
along the way. After this just keep restocking and taking out the warships and 
figthers until you get a mission update.

Mission Part 2

ITs time to meet the hardest normal enemies in the game they can be harder to 
then the night ravens. The best thing to do here is to just ignore everything
and take out the two super battleships and missions complete.


-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 40G---------------------------
			 
			    Solar System Defence Award

Awarded for great achievement during the campaign to defend the Solar System.

For this you will need to get an S rank nothing else seems to unlock this. 
The best way to do this is to shoot down/sink the fleet on Part 2 
(leave one Super Battleship) then kill as many of the phantoms as you can 
before any of your felt get shot down.

just keep an eye on the Battleship in front of the Super Battleship because 
this is the one that’s most likely to get sunk.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Stage 16:	Lonely Blue Planet	[is16]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

--------------
Main objective
--------------
Destroy the core 

The quickest way to do this is to fire 3 anti warship missiles at the defence 
weapon then get into range of the core and hold triangle for a fully changed 1 
attack. this should take it out before the weapon recharges.

--------------
Sub objectives 
--------------

Mission part 1

1. Destroy The defence Weapon 
   Have fun with this because its hard people have said that the Grav gun fully 
   charged will kill it but I've never tried.

--------------
Walkthrough
--------------

Mission Part 1

I hate this mission! ok you need to take out the defence weapon (the target
thats not the mission target) just hit it with 2-3 anti-warship rockets.
once it shuts down you have about 7 seconds to hit the core just do a fully 
charged 1 attack that should kill it. Note try not to get hit by the spinning
thing around the core or the defence weapons wings. and have fun

congrats you finished the game C'ya on the second playthrough :D


-----------------------------Achievement Unlocked 40G---------------------------

			     Special Operations Medal

Awarded for heroism in destroying the enemy's main weapon.

Just complete the level simple enough.


###############################################################################
Extra stages							[iex]
###############################################################################

Good old Square Enix if you have finished the first 16 levels and fancies some 
more action on the marketplace there is some DLC which gives you some extra 
missions and a leader board YAY!

to unlock each level you need to complete the one before it there not too hard 
if you know your weapons.

oh a word of warning you can take all your weapons with you, you are restricted 
to a select few so head over to the hanger before you fly off.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Time Attack:					[ie1]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Now I like this Level and I wish there were one of these in the actual game. ok
well basically the mission is to protect the good old Acropolis and destroy all
the enemy fighters in the given time.

ok sounds east but there’s a catch you are blind!! yes that’s right you're 
flying in a giant dust cloud in space so you can't see a thing... ok you have 
night vision but still. if that wasn't enough they're enemy carriers floating 
around and your radar is next to useless in the clouds so you need to hunt them 
out by the direction of the fighters.

well good luck.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Score Attack:				[ie2]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Ok i'm yet to complete this myself my current tactics don't seem to work on
this level. Basically there just too many things to kill and you havn't got
enough fire power to take it all down. well the main problem lies with keeping
the Acropolis alive i seem to get to about the 5th Superbattle ship then boom 
game over. 

ok my best advice for this is to protect the Acropolis at all cost try to take
out any warships near by and take out any figthers as well and most importantly
good luck.

##############################################################################
Other Achievements						[iav]
##############################################################################

These Extra achievements can be acquired after a few play through. 3 of these 
achievements will require about another 12 flythrough details below.



=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
1,000 Units Destroyed Medal:		[ioa1]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Awarded for shooting down 1,000 enemy fighters and attackers in space combat.

this can be achieved in the first play through but it more likely you will 
unlock this after the first few levels of your second play through.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
10,000 Units Destroyed Medal:		[ioa2]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Awarded for shooting down 10,000 enemy fighters and attackers in space combat.

the same as above but this will require about 7-10 flythrough to achieve this.

to acquire this quickly you will need a missile system with a large amount of 
lock on's and you will need to take out everything on each level by doing this 
you can get almost 2000 warplanes per play through. Stage 15 is a good level 
for this because the Phantoms just keep coming so if you leave the last Super 
Battleship you can keep killing phantoms until your allies sink it.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Ship Hunter Award			[ioa3]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Awarded for shooting down 100 warships in space combat.

This is an easy achievement to get and you will probably get this before stage 
13 on the first play through.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Gigaton Club Patch:			[ioa4#
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Awarded for downing several enemy vessels with a combined weight of one gigaton.

I like the work Several in there... they should change that to several Thousand.

Now this achievement is just plain stupid I’ll give you an idea of what you 
need to do 1 Gigaton is 1000 Megatons, which is 100,000 Kilotons, which is 
1,000,000,000 tons ok now you understand that 1 Warplane is about 30 tons. 
each destroyer. is about 10 kilotons and each Super Battleship is about a 
Megaton.

ok now that you can picture that this will take about 12 flythrough and sinking 
EVERY Warship. at the time of writing this I had 600 Mega tons and I was at the 
end of the 8th play through. yea this was is for when you’re bored.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Weapon Lord Patch			[ioa5]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Awarded for collecting all usable equipment for the Delta Saber.

Another easy one this will take maybe about 3 flythrough (2 if you do them 
both on hard) Just basically play through until you get enough points not 
much more I can say really other than doing it on hard gets you more points 
per level.

note once you buy the last item you don't get the achievement you must complete 
the next mission first.

some weapons cannot be brought but won instead I don't know what unlocks 
what but after playing through on hard mode it unlocked everything... 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
TCAF Pilot's Commendation:		[ioa6]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Awarded to the greatest pilots in the TCAF.

For the greatest pilots in the TCAF ok cool but to get this one you need to 
get 100% completion. ok that doesn't sound so bad apart from medal count 
towards it. 

ok so to get 100% you need to S rank every mission just once on any difficultly.
Next you need to get all the other achievements and then after you pass out 
from boredom you get it.

###############################################################################
Weapons
###############################################################################

One thing I like about this game is the vast amount of weapons you can use
and the fact there are many great combinations you can use to get the job
done. But the best part about it is after you find just 2 weapons you like
theres really no reason to change them if you don't want to.

I've listed the weapons by type and then give details onthe Mount/Hard point.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Gun					[iwe1]					
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Gun's what more can I tell you about this wonderful things other than they shoot
bullets. ok there more to it than that this type of weapon is probably the most
useful if used in skilled hands for taking out the figther with 25% health. Some
Things to remember with guns is that they take time to hit the enemy so you need
to learn how to use the preditive path. Also remember than Guns are weak, have
a short range and eat up alot of Ammo fast my best advice is to try all of them
to see which fits your style best and if this isn't your thing theres always 
laser and beam weapons. Also note that Gun type weapons Mount on the nose of 
the ship, well with one execption (Flail GP37)

------------------------------------
Light Machine Gun MG1
------------------------------------
A Standard TCAF Light Machine Gun.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: D	Weight Class: Light

Damage: E	Ammo Capacity: 3000

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A


------------------------------------
Light Swivel Machine Gun MG2H
------------------------------------
Same as the MG1 with a few improvements, most importantly sight homing.
this is better than the MG1 with better range and accuracy but has a
lower firing rate. 

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: D	Weight Class: Light

Damage: E	Ammo Capacity: 2250

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A

------------------------------------
Heavy Machine Gun MG3
------------------------------------
Another Mod of the MG1 but this time it packs more of a punch. its basically
the MG2 without the sight homing

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: D	Weight Class: Light

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 2250

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Heavy Swivel Machine Gun MG5H
------------------------------------
This is just the MG2 with a short range but more power, to be honest stick
with the MG2 if you want to use this.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: E	Weight Class: Light

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 1500

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Broad Sword SG1
------------------------------------
Now I like this gun its a bit like a big shot gun quite useful but I
personally didn't use this weapon for more than one mission, I prefer a
machine gun.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: E	Weight Class: Light

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 200

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Swing Sword SG2H
------------------------------------
Now this thing is a beast its a really useful SG1 now with the sight homing
in close combat using the pad lock you can take figthers out very quickly.
this has to be one of my favorite nose weapons Shame it lacks range and power.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: E	Weight Class: Light

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 200

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Twin Sword SG3II
------------------------------------
This weapon can pack a punch but because its hasn't got sight homing it wasn't
very useful. to sum this weapon up quick its a double barrel shotgun with faster
firing times but the same ammo capacity so it runs out too quick. shame there
wasn't and upgraded one of these.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: E	Weight Class: Light

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 200

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Flail GP37

Honestly this is useless, well thats no fair its a goos weapon its just mounts
in the wrong place.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (main weapon 1)

Range: C	Weight Class: Medium

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 3000

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A



=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Beam					[iwe2]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Beam Weapons are kind of a cross between a laser and a bullet there just laser
bullets really... yea ok these weapsons do have some advantages over machine
guns and missile systems they do suffer from over heating at times But on the
other hand they have a faser realoding time than most of the missiles. give 
these a try you might like them but personnally there not my thing.

------------------------------------
Stiletto BG1
------------------------------------
TO be honest I can't see why you would use this over the SG1 but i suppose it
has a higher amount of ammo and never overheats (nor does a machine gun) well
its your call.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: E	Weight Class: Light

Damage: E	Ammo Capacity: 6000

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Dagger BG2
------------------------------------
Not much improvement over the BG1 but it does fire faster and has a better 
range and a slight improvment in power but once again if you like beam weapons
knock yourself out.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: D	Weight Class: Light

Damage: E	Ammo Capacity: 4000

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Rapier BG4H
------------------------------------
This version of the BG1 is a bit better but not much once again it had improved
everything but not by much with the added bonus that the "bullets" home in on
the target ok that good but due to the lack of range you'd have to be blind
not to be able to hit them.

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: D	Weight Class: Light

Damage: E	Ammo Capacity: 3000

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Pilum BP
------------------------------------
Now this is a nice weapon and its good if you like sharp shooting but apart from
that stick with missiles.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: B	Weight Class: Light

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 600

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Multi Pike BP
------------------------------------
Now this is basically the same as the Pilum but with everything improved apart
from the range which drops a range but once again stick with missiles.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: C	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 1200

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/a

Lock on Overlap: N/A

------------------------------------
Spear HBP
------------------------------------
Now this is a nice weapon it has a good number of lock ones but no overlaps but
with its decent ammo you can take out alot of figthers within close range. this 
is one of my weapons of choice but you could pick worse.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: D	Weight Class: Medium

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 700

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: 14

Lock on Overlap: N/A

------------------------------------
Long Spear HBP
------------------------------------
Basically the Spear HBP but everything is improved. its moves up to the Heavy
class there for it moves to the lower mount point. This weapon would be useful
but due to its stupid cost you'll have weapons alot better than this by the 
time you get it. but if you want to use another weapon that mounts to the Fore
then this weapon will certainly fill the gap.

Hard/Mount point: Lower (Main Weapon 3)

Range: C	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 1500

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: 60

Lock on Overlap: Available

------------------------------------
Gray Head T76H
------------------------------------
This ones a werid on and I personnaly don't like it. This weapon pack a hell
of a punch and has perfect range but it take a moment to charge and to use it
on warships you need to take out the shield gens first. so if you like it use it
if not then don't.

Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: A	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: B	Ammo Capacity: 75

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/A

Lock on Overlap: N/A

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Laser					[iwe3]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
It just wouldn't be the future without the the laser weapons now would it. ok
well this weapons are just like the machine gun weapons apart form they
overheat. The best thing about these are you don't need to aim infront of the 
enemy to hit them you just aim at them because its a light based weapon it
basically an instant hit. 

------------------------------------
Saber LG1
------------------------------------
This is a good weapon can take out enemy figther quite quickly with this. but
due to its lack of a sight homing it not that great. has alot of ammo though

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: C	Weight Class: Light

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 150 seconds

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/A

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Twin Saber LG2H
------------------------------------
now this is my nose weapon of choice it doesn't have as much ammo as the LG1 but
its more than enough to keep you going for a whole mission. Also with the 
added ablity of the sight homing this can be useful for taking out those random
figthers with hardly any life. 

Hard/Mount point: Nose

Range: C	Weight Class: Medium

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 60 seconds

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/A

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Needle L1GP
------------------------------------
This laser weapon has a great range and reasonable power but due to its lack
of ammo and not real sight homing or lock on ablitiy it doesn't serve much
purpose in fast paced combat.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: B	Weight Class: Light

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 50 seconds

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/A

Lock on Overlap: N/A
------------------------------------
Fire Arrow L2GP
------------------------------------
Now if this weapon wasn't mounted at the Rear it would be amazing. it has
a range of A! but a damage of C which is a shame but with its 112 seconds of
ammo who really care this is great for sharp shooting those lonely figthers.

Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: A	Weight Class: Medium

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 112 seconds

Speed: N/A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: N/A

Lock on Overlap: N/A

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Multipurpose Missiles			[iwe4]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The classic weapon and certainly the best for taking out a larger number of 
enemies in a very short time. This class Doesn't vary much in the damage 
department and there all pretty weak, which means on the harder setting you'll
need to hit the target with a fair few number of these to kill them.

So for this class I recommend the ones with the highest lock on count for max
damage.

------------------------------------
Falcon 9AM
------------------------------------
A very useful weapon early in the game with its 12 lock ons and its speed it
makes it useful for taking out enemies on formation quickly. Its a bit weak and
its reload time isn't great but give it a try.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: D	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 300

Speed: A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 12

Lock on Overlap: N/A

------------------------------------
Buzzard 10AM
------------------------------------
The Buzzard was my weapon of choice for a while mainly because of its 22 lock
on's and lock on overlap. It lacks in the damage department but as with the 
Falcon its a great weapon early in the game.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: C	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 600

Speed: A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: 22

Lock on Overlap: Yes

------------------------------------
Hawk 75AM
------------------------------------
This is an intresting weapon it as an A range and its stronger than the Buzzard
but its heavier than the Buzzard and has less ammo and lock on's I honestly
I can't see the advantage of this. But if you prefer Range over power and lock
on's go for it. But I suppose this does mount at the Rear but its not a very
good anti ship weapon.

Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: A	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 144

Speed: A	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: 12

Lock on Overlap: N/A

------------------------------------
Condor 105AM
------------------------------------
Now this is my weapon of choice due to the fact it has a massive lock on count
and a great ammo Capacity this can take out a whole formation of enemy figthers 
in a single hit. ok it lacks in power and range but when you hit a target with
3-7 missiles its doesn't matter.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: C	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: D	Ammo Capacity: 100

Speed: A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 60

Lock on Overlap: Yes
------------------------------------
Eagle 120AM
------------------------------------
This was my weapon of choice for a long while mainly because of its improved
range, power and ammo. But with only 16 lock on's it fails to be an improvement
over the Condor.

Hard/Mount point: Fore (Main Weapon 1)

Range: B	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 240

Speed: A	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 16

Lock on Overlap: Yes
------------------------------------
Thrush 220AM
------------------------------------
Now I found thie useful when used with the Eagle 120AM but you lose your lower
mount point for this. its has a massive 40 lock on's and a 1000 ammo capacity 
with the same range and power as the eagle. The trick to using this is to either
have this and have a cannon type weapon at the fore or just this with the eagle
by firing the eagles 16 missiles then switch weapon then fire Thrush's missiles
makes for a quick body count.

Hard/Mount point: Lower (Main Weapon 3)

Range: B	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 1000

Speed: B	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 40

Lock on Overlap: Yes

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Anti-Ship Missiles			[iwe5]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Now these all mount at the rear and have pretty much the same damaga rating as
the multipurpose missiles but with basically no lock on and low ammo. These
weapons are good for sinking shows early in the game but buy a rocket/bomb ASAP.

------------------------------------
Terrier SMH
------------------------------------
Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: D	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 45

Speed: B	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 4

Lock on Overlap: Yes
------------------------------------
Hound SMH
------------------------------------
Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: B	Weight Class: Medium

Damage: C	Ammo Capacity: 18

Speed: B	Sight Homing: Yes

Max lock ons: 4

Lock on Overlap: Yes
------------------------------------
Pointer SM
------------------------------------
Hard/Mount point: Rear (Main Weapon 2)

Range: A	Weight Class: Heavy

Damage: A	Ammo Capacity: 9

Speed: B	Sight Homing: No

Max lock ons: 1

Lock on Overlap: N/A

Now this is my choice of weapon for sinking ships the Cauldron 50 is my favorite
but the other do a good job as well. The damage class on these are reasonabe 
even though some say D the fact they explode and cause a large fire means they
do extra damage. Also when used against normal figthers they'll go down in one
hit.

Cannon					[iwe7]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Cannons, well there basically big guns, some of them in this class are pretty
much useless due to the fact they over heat too quickly take forever to reload
and don't really cause that much damage. The only really useful ones here are
Tomahawk Alpha Rail Gun and the Glaive 120mm Cannon (the Glavie is highly
recommened for most missions)

High recommend due to its fast reload time great ammo Capacity and its

FAQ								[ifaq]
#############################################################################

1. If I die and restart from the checkpoint does it save my previous progress?

   Nope. Unfortunately it doesn't so if you die and you want the achievement 
   at the end of the level you will need to start from the start again.
   annoying I know but it’s just how the game runs.

2. If I skip the level do I still get the level complete achievements?
   
   Unfortunately you don't because it gives it you for completing the stage
   not for progressing the story.

3. How do you shoot down the Super Battleship?

   These ones tricky the best way I’ve found is to just pound it from the 
   side with anti warship missiles because flying around taking out the 
   shield gen will probably get you shot down.

4. I kill ellan What do I do?

   forget about her she just gets in the way anyway and it doesn't effect
   the out come of the missions unless you want an S rank

5. After clearing the game what do you keep?

   Everything which is a good thing really.

6. can I use stage select to increase my kill count or get achievements?

   Sorry no all achievements but be obtained in story mode.
