Clear Steps 

Return the VFLs to your ARs. This map despite appearances, is incredibly straight forwards, and the latest example of AI allies with apocalypitcally high stats, as stepping on the Radar Node causes the Dummies to turn into a SAT8 and Claes. While even MICA buffs cannot save Claes from herself, SAT8 turns into a terrifying monster, inflicting thousands of damage per shot. If only we could recruit her... Besides SAT unleashing the power of floof on unsuspecting foes, little on this map requires much attention. Ensure your Echelons are up to par with the enemies. 

This map again features random movement enemy AI, which will creates no small degree of difficulty in creating a guide that is foolproof. Turns 3 and 4 can be adjusted to fit the layout of enemies you see, as opposed to the route shown here. Consider this guide, to be a suggestion less than an ironclad set of moves.

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on both the Command Post and move up-left two nodes to occupy the Radar. Set both SAT8 and Claes to Eliminate Enemies then end your turn. 

Turn 2


Deploy a second Combat Echelon on the Command Post, and move them to the right one node. 

This Echelon be swapped for a Dummy Echelon for early game Commanders. This guide uses a second Combat Echelon to speed up the clear, but this is not a requirement if you are willing to freestyle a bit. 


Move the upper Combat Echelon to the upper right one node, and then up one node to engage the Guards. End your turn.

Turn 3


Move the upper Combat Echelon to the right one node, up one node, to the left one node, and up one node. This route is used to account for enemy movement, and can be shortened depending on your needs. 


Move the lower Combat Echelon up two nodes. 

If a Dummy Echelon is filling this position, leave them where they are, and use the spare AP for your Combat Team instead. 

Turn 4


Swap positions with SAT to resupply the upper Combat Echelon. Move to the right one node, and down one node.


Move the lower Combat Echelon up three nodes to kill the remaining enemy. 

If you are using a Dummy Echelon, sweep the rest of the map with the first Combat Echelon instead. You may need a 5th turn to do so.
