“Our current mission is to storm the Spire Hills. If successful, we should be able to drive that pompous, old... I mean, we should be able to force the Blue Moon forces to withdraw.
This is the third level of Field Training in Advance Wars. Nell tells us that Olaf has sent a force into the Spire Hills. This mission contains eight enemies. During the battle Nell explains about base capture and funds. Another feature you are introduced to are tanks units which are very hard to take out at this point without sufficient troop strength. One last feature is the concept of HQ capture, if a team's HQ is captured than they lose.
The mission is a tutorial and introduces base capture and funds. Nell guides you only through your first 2 turns then it is all up to you to make decisions. You should quickly capture the five cities west of the mountain range with you infantry and mech units. Then wait for the enemy mech and infantry units to attack your position and counter attack, remember a unit that ends it's turn on a city will heal by 2 HP the next day. Once that force is defeated send an infantry unit across the south out side of the mountain range and around to the enemy HQ. Once there, capture it to win and you won't even need to worry about the tanks units to the north.
