Your job is to build and escort convoys, ultimately getting a van () to the enemy base.
First up, weapons: While flying, press (shift) to fire and (CTRL) to drop bombs.
You can also click to change direction.
Return to your base's landing pad () to repair and reload.
Several green lines and a sound will indicate completion.
You've got company! Look for grey blocks on the radar. Don't let the enemy van reach your base!
Bombs (CTRL) are effective on tanks; the machine gun (shift) is good for others.
Enemy vans can completely jam your radar in the regular game.
Return to your base. Order some Infantry (push the i key) and land in front of them.
Fill up on infantry. You can carry up to five at a time.
Find the enemy bunker near your base. It shows as a grey block on the radar.
When near the bunker, push space to drop an infantry unit.
Enemy bunkers have a left-facing arrow, and will claim the first passing infantry.
Order a Missile launcher, Tank, and a Van using the underlined letters.
You can only order one unit at a time.
The enemy helicopter is out to get you, but may be hiding.
You may see a blinking, grey triangle on the radar. Find and take it out!
Missile Launcher vehicles self-destruct and fire when an enemy helicopter is in range.
Enemy units are ahead. Avoid missiles until they run out of fuel, or attempt to shoot them down.
Smart Missiles show up as fast-moving red dots on the radar, so keep an eye out!
Engineers are capable of claiming enemy turrets, and rebuilding and repairing friendly ones.
There is a dead turret near your base.
Order some Engineers, and watch them repair the turret if you like.
Enemy turrets target helicopters, and can fire quickly. They are vulnerable to infantry (space) and smart missiles (X).
Find and destroy one near the middle of the battlefield. If you run out of ammo, return to your base to reload.
Funds are earned at a regular interval. Fortune favours those who fly further into enemy territory.
For a challenge, get infantry into the enemy's end bunker to steal some of their funds!
You have completed bootcamp training.
You can keep playing, or exit the tutorial and play the full game.
Be warned, the full thing won't be this easy!
