Advance Wars Field Training

With thanks to SciFiGuy for this guide.

General Info


Field Training is basically the tutorial on how to play Advance Wars in the first AW game. There are 13 missions to complete, and an extra mission is unlocked after you beat the 13th mission. Field Training is the first mode you play before you can play many other modes in the game. If you know what you are doing, then you can just beat the 13th mission so you can move onto the other modes in the game. This turn-by-turn guide will explain how to get an A Rank for each mission.

General Disclaimer


Sometimes you may find that something in my guide is wrong. Well, the reason for that is because something called "luck" is in the game. Sometimes units don't do as much damage as they should, sometimes they do more etc. This causes the computers to make different moves if something doesn't happen as planned. If you get a different outcome than what this guide says, you can notify me on my AIM screen name chaosmaster17 and I will try to give you a different set of moves to do so you can still get an A Rank on the mission.

NOTE: When I say "3W" this means "3 spaces west." The letter refers to the direction to move in and the number refers to how many spaces to move in the direction. Here's a key for the directions I will say throughout this guide…
"N" - North
"S" - South
"E" - East
"W" - West
