Fog of War is introduced in this mission, along with how a Unit's Vision Range comes into play here and special mechanics that only function in Fog of War missions.

[edit] Intel

Fog of War (Mission) is the thirteenth mission of Advance Wars' Field Training Mode. You start with 11 Units on your side compared to Olaf's nine, but some of his Units are hidden in Woods and Reefs.

This is the first time battling in a Fog of War situation, and Recon Units are introduced. Also, while not mentioned during the mission, if you press B to cancel a Unit's movement in a Fog of War mission, the fuel that would have been used for that turn will get subtracted as if it had already moved, so don't do that too many times or else your Units will run out of fuel!

[edit] Strategy

After going through the Training portion of the mission, commands are yours to make. Remember that Infantry and Mechs that are in the Mountains will have their vision range expanded by 3, which is very useful for spotting oncoming units in Fog of War.

Use the Rockets to attack the Medium Tank, then use your two Tanks to flank and destroy the hidden Rockets unit that was revealed during the Training part of the mission. Now use your Medium Tank to destroy the other Medium Tank and take the cover that the Rockets unit had.

As a result of that, you'll be able to press your advantage on the next turn, but watch your step near Blue Moon HQ because there is an Artillery Unit in the Woods one east and two north of Olaf's HQ, and a Rockets Unit in the woods one east and two south of said HQ as well. The Lander is in the Reefs near Blue Moon HQ.

An A Rank is the highest rank that can be obtained during Field Training missions.
