1)	Introduction

Hi, I'm Stastheman and this is a complete walkthrough and faq for the great 
strategical game called field commander. As for me, I think this is the best
(and the only) strategy/tactical game for the psp system.
This is my first guide and I hope that it will help gamers out there because 
I haven't seen a single guide for this game yet. I really hope 
that this guide will help you. So ... enjoy.

* For now, I have only finished the first four mission walkthroughs.
  But don't worry, I will update this guide as soon as possible.

7)	Tutorial walkthrough

7.1) land training

objectives: win: either kill all the enemy's units or capture his HQ
            lose: the enemy kills all your units or captures your HQ
fog of war: off
weather: clear

strategy:
This mission is pretty straightforward because the CO's (Commanding officers)
guide you through the level. 
Click on the Half Track, shoot the enemy Half Track with the grunt, then 
destroy the enemy's Half Track with yours. Move the grunt close to the bridge
onto the enemy's HQ and select "capture". Move your spec ops on the red cross.
End turn. Fire on the enemy's scout with your spec ops, 
capture the enemy's HQ.

7.2) sea training

objectives: win: all enemy units killed or enemy HQ captured
            loss: all friendly units destroyed
fog of war: off
weather: clear

strategy:
First, build a transport, move your Half Track and Spec Ops into the 
transport.End turn. Move the transport as close as possible to the beach of
the island with the enemy's HQ and build a submarine to distract the enemy's 
sub from your transport. End turn. move transport to the beach and unload 
your Half Track. End turn. Attack the enemy scout with the half track, 
unload your Spec Ops from the transport. End turn. Attack the scout again 
and this time it will blow up. Move your Spec Ops onto the enemy HQ and 
select "capture". End turn. Capture the enemy HQ again.
			
			
			
7.3) air training

objectives:win:all enemy units destroyed or enemy HQ captured
           loss:all friendly units destroyed or friendly HQ captured.
fog of war:off
weather:clear

strategy:
   
 Your main goal here is to go up the large mountain in the top left corner of
 the map and capture the enemy's HQ because killing all his units is much 
 longer.
 
 Load a grunt in each of the utility helicopters and move them to the
 middle of the map where there is a small mound with tetons.
 Attack two enemy gunships on the east side with two of your anti-aircraft 
 guns. Then move the anti aircraft guns on the west side as close to the huge
 mountain as you can. Also, move your two gunships close to your utility
 helicopters for protection. End turn. After your enemy's done, use your 
 gunships to inflict some damage on the enemy's gunships, and if the enemy's 
 gunships are close enough to the ground you can use your anti-aircraft guns.
 End turn. As soon as you start, wipe out the rest of the choppers in your way
 and move the utility choppers up the mountain (the second chopper will be a
 backup in case the enemy deastroys the first one). End turn. Now move 
 one of the utility choppers up the mountain and unload a grunt near the 
 enemy's HQ. Send a gunship for protection just in case. End turn. 
 Move your grunt onto the enemy HQ and select "capture". End turn. Select the 
 grunt again and finally capture the enemy HQ.

I suggest using the Long Shots Division for this mission.
First capture the 2 Dense cities on the left side of the map and the factory 
right at the end of the bridge. When you capture the factory build at least 
5-6 half tracks and just make your way to the enemy HQ by killing enemies on 
your way. Get one of your units to stay on the enemy factory to stop

the group itself.
