Orange Star

In-Game-

Country Description

Orange Star is the first call of port in the game, and the country where the start of the campaign is held. This country seems to be the most technologically advanced. The country most resembles the United States Of America in real life, with similarities between the two in soldiers, units, and headquarters. The Star is similar to the Stars on the USA flag.

The Orange Star Military is headed by Nell, who offers advice during Field Training to the other Orange Star CO's, Andy, Max, and Sami. More information on these can be found in our AW1 CO guide here.

Blue Moon

Country Description

Blue Moon is the second country you play as in Advance Wars. The country most resembles Russia or the ex-Soviet Union in real life, with a likeness between the soldiers, the units, and the headquarters. There is also an American-esque CO (Grit) who appears to have defected to the country, as some Americans did during the Cold War. The Moon has a fleeting similarity to the sickle on the USSR flag.

The Blue Moon forces are primarily headed by Olaf, with Grit as an extra CO. For more information on these two CO's, see our AW1 CO guide here.

Yellow Comet

Country Description

Yellow Comet is the third country in the game, and often the most backward technologically (look at the copters and fighters). The country most resembles Japan in real life, as seen in Kanbei's obsession with the samurai, soldiers, units, the headquarters, and the technology. The islands of Yellow Comet on the Cosmo Land map (see above- Country Borders) bears a passing resemblance to those of Japan.

The Yellow Comet Imperial Army is headed by Kanbei, with his daughter Sonja heading up the intelligence unit. Please see our AW1 CO page for more information.

Country Description

Green Earth is the fourth and hardest Allied Nation mission-wise. The country most often resembles Germany and the Central Powers in real life, as evidenced in the castle-like HQ, the technology and units. The character of Eagle could be attributed to the real life Baron von Richtofen.

The Green Earth Army is headed by Eagle who is an aircraft specialist, with Drake there as a naval specialist. For more information on the Green Earth Commanding Officers, see our AW1 CO Guide.

Not a lot is known about Black Hole in Advance Wars, except they came to Cosmo Land to cause trouble and it is headed by the ever-mysterious Sturm. More information on Sturm can be found in our AW1 CO guide here.
