It's okay, it follows the best characters to the game and VC3 has an OVA too. The anime uses the game's OST and is even animated like the game

One of the main reasons the anime sucks so much is because its NOT similar to the design of the game. The game has a very distinct style that the anime doesn't replicate in any way.

It was the most successful attempt to emulate a 2D design in a (sorta) 3D format. The anime not replicating this was a major strike against it before it even aired.
>>
>>119746085

It wasn't released in the US, VC3 is everything good about the other and more, the only problem is that is for the PSP and not PS3.

As for the anime it was just a short 2 episode OVA. It didn't have any major backing so the animation is great but it is still VC. VC3 is a lot darker than VC and VC2, the 422 are a penal sqaud that act like special forces and get screwed over a lot. VC3 also unites the other two series with a whole bunch of cameos by the 7th squad, Class G makes cameos but that is game only.
>>
Pretty terrible.

3 was much better than 2. At least you finally get to control a valkyria.
As for the OVA I'm still butthurt that they didn't include best girl Margit.

VC2 would need a lot more than a slightly better paint job to be considered any way good.

Are you talking about the game? Because plenty of other games have done that. Dragon Quest VIII is arguably the best looking game on PS2 because is successfully broke the 'uncanney valley' of anime graphics in a 3D world. Valkyria Chronicles also did it successfully. But it did come out 5 years later on a stronger system.

But yes, in the end, the anime failed to emulate it.

I haven't played the second game, but I've heard it said that elements of the gameplay are improved over VC2. Is there any truth to this?

That said, I've little intention of playing VC2 anyway as I can't tolerate the change in art style.
>>
>>119746464

Sega drastically reduced the development budget and changed many key members of the development team. Sega still whines about VC being a failure, despite it selling some 700,000 copies.

Basically, Valkyria Chronicles is the Sega version of Suikoden. A series with endless potential, constantly squandered by low budgets from shareholders.
>>
>>119746442

The cut scenes are anime and cell shading but the game play is VC/VC2 style. You get fewer characters but a lot more options. You can class up anyway for the most part.

Also same thing about what >>119746421 said
But if you do well, you get 4 Valkyria to control.

True but if you look at the events it makes sense,

The actual timeline:
VC is the Great War, VC is the big war were legends are made and heroic tales are told

VC3 is the Underside of the Great War, where the losers are working behind the scenes to show that the good guys aren't so good

VC2 is the Low Intensity Civil War or in this case Uprising, so the high school setting is fine for this because the Great War is over and people moved on

VC3 is a side story of sorts, the MC of VC3 starts out like Welkin but some stuff happens and he is latter shipped to 422. VC2 happens years after VC/VC3. VC2 is the Civil Uprising, but is no Great War, Welkin and Alicia are retired from service and everything is basically peachy. Everybody goes to the Academy because there are no wars left.

The point is that it eventually did sell a lot. Which showed the series had promise. So they should have at least given its sequel the same level of budget and time as the first game. And, most important, kept it on the same platform.

Instead, they made a low budget sequel on a system only popular in Japan. Wow...I wonder why interest in the series plummeted....

>>119746573
There's a tiny bit of truth to it, but it's not so impressive that you can claim without dispute that it was an overall improvement in gameplay. Here's some features for better or worse YMMV

>Each class branches into two higher tier classes that each branch into two more as you upgrade
>Tiny maps that connect to each other through the use of flag bases
>Semi-random spawns each encounter (bosses and certain shit stay the same no matter what)
>RNG loot system for R&D and upgrading your classes
>Leveling barely does jack shit in the short run, though depending on the class it does have huge gains if you grind all 50 fucking levels, good luck maxing even one class before you finish the game without some serious time wasting.
>The AI gets smarter as you progress All this means is the AI is really fucking retarded at the start and can't even move a unit in succession for half the game

The art style doesn't actually change per se unless you're talking about the 2D cardboard cutouts replacing the in-game cutscenes. But the difference between a PSP and a PS3 means during battle the characters look a lot more shitty, especially VC2 which is so lazy everyone uses the same body for each class.

Say I have shit taste, but this might be a case to just watch it yourself. I asked the same question a while back, and someone told me to form my own opinion, so I watched it and it was a 6. 6 being Kill la Kill tier and 7 being Chaika tier. I enjoyed it like I did Kill la Kill, but it brings pretty little to the story of you've already played the game. It's reasonably faithful to the game, but did Maximillian with a bit of mediocrity.

Nigga, did you play the game? It's the best of the three VC games in terms of pure gameplay.

If it was on the PS3, it would have been even better. It showed its limitations as a PSP game by having smaller levels and often repeated levels as well. But otherwise, in terms of gameplay mechanics, it's the best.

>>119747796
The later missions are so fucking hard that I don't blame anyone. Savescumming isn't even enough for some of the last bosses. It's better just to suck it up and look up a guide. That's the only complaint I have with the first game.

The only reason I like this franchise is for the sisters.

>>119747937
Her sister was the only thing I liked about VC2. They're both adorable.

>>119747794
No you are interpreting it wrong. I mean each class has one body, and everyone that's under that class uses that body.

So say you are a shock trooper, you will have a shock trooper body. It doesn't matter if you're a girl or a boy, you will have the same body.

It doesn't even matter if you're one of the main characters, this applies all the same.

This gets to be a problem when you have girls who are 12 year old or some shit being the same as a 24 year old man in stature, and goes double for Largo retains his VC1 head size but gets a twig of a body giving him really fucked up proportions. As for the girls Selvaria and Juliana were wronged for obvious reasons.

This is actually alright compared to Lancer, since the upgraded class gets big ass robes. You don't get that luxury to start with. And for reference, everyone's heads are way smaller, just check the VC wiki they have galleries for each character.

>>119748067
>I just got really shitty ranks during the hard missions and people died.
I only ever reset a mission when someone died because in this sort of game I feel terrible when that happens. It feels like they put their trust in you to command them and you fucked up and got them killed.

It took me ages to beat the episode with the pincer attach right after Alicia punks Selvaria because I kept losing units and I would restart every time I did. Finally beat it thanks to Largo's ten-turn mad dash to crit spot one of the big tanks.

I remember first playing the game thinking she'd play an important role in the plot. But she ends up just being Max's submissive little bitch.

I was really hoping that we could convert her to our cause later on in the game, but no. She just kills herself for her master. We didn't even get that much of her in the DLC.

VC is just a really flawed game with tons of potential that was squandered because of Sega. So as unfortunate as it is, I guess you couldn't have expected any less.
>>
>>119748149
The Jaegar one? I just wasted a lot of CP using the Edelweiss doing hit and runs along with Marina/Largo sniping then hiding behind walls. I slowly advanced with Alicia and Aisha to the north part of the map going west.

The biggest danger for me that time was getting the guys in the alley and then finding a fucking tank as I ran out instant gibbing my shock trooper, but since it was Rosie I didn't lose anyone that time. Anyone else and they were dead.

I basically didn't fuck with Jaeger at all until I cleared the entire map and had an engineer with Edelweiss the whole time. And either the AI was stupid or I was lucky but Jaeger wastes a lot of CP smoking shit and almost half the time it ends up doing him no good even during the early stages because I simply choose to attack somewhere else then and force him to move his units out of the smoke.

Later on when I started capturing bases, he still does the same places and at best he puts my tank to 50% or lower, so I repair.

Once everything was cleared, I just retreated most of my guys and brought in a ton of lancers and one of them was gonna get near his ass.

I got a D on that mission or something.

>>119748434
Sega have squandered the potential of so many games in recent years. Why they still exist is beyond me. And they treat any good games that manage to slip out as prodigal sons unless they meet unrealistic sales projections.
>>
>>119748309
To be fair, it's part of her character to be a waste/tragedy. That's the entire point of her contrast with Alicia.

I'm not saying that justifies it, but that was clearly what Sega was aiming for and it'd be pretty terrible to just change the entire theme and shit just so you can save the most popular girl in the series from an integrity standpoint.

I'll be honest with you. While the destination was the same, the road was very different. For example:
1) Turning Alicia into generic tsundere, who hates being around Welkin for the first two or three episodes.
2) Taking the cabin scene and re-writing it so that the wounded soldier forces his way in, by threatening Alicia and Welkin with a grenade.
3) Forcing in a Love Triangle between Welkin, Alicia, and Faldio.

VC2 I end up sending Zeri and Mischlette to their deaths so many times I would have had generic squad mates if it were VC1, all because of trying to get phoenix.

Jaegar is scripted to always use his second move to smoke. If you kill everything he'll actually smoke the ace hiding in the alley and give away his location.
I wish there were difficulty settings so you could make the AI not so insipid but I guess that would have required coding AI to start with.
>>
>>119747939
Are you serious? I did occasionally screw up a couple of times toward the end, but there wasn't any mission that you had to resort to savescumming to beat, even knowing nothing going into the mission. Not being able to A-rank? Sure, but unless you are just randomly charging your unit to certain death, they were highly beatable.
>>
>>119748876
You my friend have the right idea. Catherine needs more love.

>>119749123
If the AI was better, the game would be fucking impossible unless you savescummed hardcore. You already get fucked up pretty bad, even if it is plenty beatable.
>>
>>119749123
It's still better than VC2's AI. But yeah AI is one of the big things that could use improvements.

I still think the concept of VC as a game is wonderful and untapped though. It had a really good mix of cutscene/gameplay/artstyle/etc. The CANVAS engine is the type that ages well I think too. I sure as hell didn't find it all that lacking on PC.

Just a shame they didn't make a 4 and on. There's plenty of ways to continue, just don't connect it to Gallia.

I nearly had an aneurysm on that mission after my carefully crafted plan to get get a shocktrooper past the enemy lines behind the tank failed miserably because Lynn couldn't actually damage that tank with her MG.

I also realized after the first attempt that you could just park a lancer behind enemy lines before they show up, but felt that was cheating and stubbornly refused to do it.

Faldio was Welkin's friend from College and in charge of Squad 1 in both game and anime.

That strategy of blocking her with the tank requires a restart after getting completely shit on after she shows up. It's not a bad strategy, but having to restart to implement it is bad game design. Gives you absolutely no chance on the first try.

That and keep key units away from her, in VC3 I hit her with snipers on opposite sides of the field to make her look in different directions so my guys can move.
>>
>>119749374
It's actually interesting. When I unlocked the bit about her story where she was forced to watch a friend die due to lack of ammo , it happened after I more or less accidentally recreated that incident.
>>
>>119749299
Selvaria only really screwed me over the first time because the last radiator was the one on the inside of the map. The other two radiators are trivial, the Batomys will block her for you.

Is anybody else having to type out their captchas again?
>>
>>119749299
It was definitely a huge difficulty spike, but not terrible unless you were extremely unlucky and lost all your lancers to her initial warpathing.
>>
>>119749299
Nah it's actually really easy even if you don't block her. I lucked out on it unintentionally but here's how I managed A-rank on my first try:

>Start normally a bit more engineers and lancers than normal
>Op scouts take out the shitters at the top because op scouts
>Break down the walls with your tank and repair it if you can't find a way to hide it, I didn't and I ended up running Edelweiss ahead of the Batomys and straight to the last base camp because holy shit Batomys hurts.
>Take out the left reactor the first time Max blows up a wall while you run engineers/scouts/lancers to the trench past the 2nd base camp; basically the right side of where the Batomys is when it makes it's final stretch towards your final base camp
>Proceed as normal and Batomys will provide you cover because Selvaria runs to the left side of Batomys while your characters are all on the right

Basically once Selvaria appears, she b-lines to the left of the Batomys, and if you position the units right she has nowhere to shoot at you for a long time. Someone might get downed, but she won't have time to perma-kill them, and since you have 3-4 characters along that area saving each other when you can just ragnaid after you reach the downed unit.

Also, by breaking down all the walls after you've brought Edelweiss past them, you force the Batomys to fire a lot faster so you can get all 3 reactors down before Max even gets close to last camp.

She's actually the second-best lancer in the game, statwise. Basically identical to Jann but trades HP for Accuracy, and accuracy is the biggest problem for lancers throughout the game.

A bit I neglected to mention
To add on to 2): They took some of the most emotional scenes and changed them in some way or form, some good, but most bad.

They also gave Isara a love intrest, which was kinda cute, but didn't go far for obvious reasons.

Also, I do give the anime a shred of credit, though I'll likely take some flak for this. I think it took a more realistic approach to the use of the Valkyrur's power, and when I say realistic, I mean would most probably happen given certain high-up's in the military. You think that fatass Damon would just ignore the fact that Gallia posses a Valkyira? I don't think so.

Ironically I find VC2 to be a lot better than VC1 in this regard, simply due to having a lot more base camps to switch out characters/baton pass, and the size of the maps allowing other classes than scout to be useful.

VC1 unless it's something like the rescue Cordelia mission, there was almost no point in regularly using anything other than scouts/tank. Lancers/Eng/Snipers/Shocks were all very situational.

Same here, I start with 3 and sometimes 2, the others are used for leap frogging and flag defense.

Yeah, I usually run around with a shocktrooper geared up with the Ruhm, have them kill about 50% of the map and have a few of the OP scouts running around, Marina or Catherine depending on my mood and a lancer if needed. I also usually tote around Karl as my engineer simply because Lynn is usually my shocktrooper.

Perhaps, but in the show she was placed directly under his command, and even if it was her doing the fighting, he is taking all the credit. Even in the game, he takes credit for other's actions.

Good thing about VC2 was that with the 5 to 6 person limit, you are forced to utilize your team to it's best.

I used scouts to start tagging enemies and cover ground, snipers to clear the field in sight, and gunner to defend flags, engineers to restock, and the tank all the time. Everybody else was on standby.

Personally I think stand by is an iffy mechanic. On one hand, it's great for the PSP due to the limitations, and granted it makes it easier to leap frog thus utilizing slow units in more situations.

But it basically splits classes into campers and chargers. Scouts/Engies/Shocks charge while Snipers/AT just clear shit around camp 99% of the time. The only class with remote consistency in not favoring one over the other is Lancer, and that's only due to the option of charging past a tank and one shotting them.

For a game like VC1, not being able to teleport units in would have changed it drastically. For better or worse, I cannot say, but I can't help but feel there might have been a way to utilize ap in a more fun manner. A way that makes you contemplate whether or not it's worth running that sniper all the damn way to a certain nest or something instead of it always being an obvious yes/no decision.

I mean when the #1 way to flank an enemy is to appear behind them through a captured flag on another map, you know the game has zero formation value.

I used my gunners for camping, the way I did it was if I knew there was an enemy with high armor and high attack, I would switch snipers with gunners and I would space them out so that their fire pattern overlapped. I had more kills with snipers than any other class, due to all the upgrades and the priority for leveling up I gave them.

VC was the last one I played I find it a little harder due to the gameplay differences from VC2 and VC3. I don't like the fact that I have to wait for reinforcements

The whole Selvaria and Alicia remembering each other from the labs was an interesting twist to the story.

no dipshit, your big ass swords won't do jack against tanks. in fact, they don't do much against the things they are supposed to matter (v0 armors).

>dark clothing means serious storyline
it aint even that serious. the nameless are bros amongst themselves and aren't an entire squad of cloud strifes. they make fun of imca for being cloud strife (and not liking wild mushrooms). if you think Jann or Dallas are weird, well, the nameless have an autist and two smooth playas. also Reimu.

He racked up so many kills on my save file, not only that but I had a few guys go down and he got them back into rotation. Helmult is the original Imperial Sniper.

You play Selvaria and Karl in VC1, and you can play Selvaria in VC2 minus her breasts which admittedly makes it pointless.

In the anime He was granted a pardon as per Alicia's request to Cordelia.

>>119752410
It's DLC. Helmut is already available when you have access to class G and stay that way till the end of the game.
It's like saying Riku is playable because he's playable for 5s in the end of KH2.

>>119752321
Cool. More than enough for me, it's far better than stumbling through the whole thing without any translation at all.

Selvaria actually has a story though in VC1, and it's canon. There's nothing less legitimate about it and you can technically access the DLC right away can't you? I dunno because I chose to beat the game first but I'd assume it's not locked out.
>>
>>119748707

Alicia is a close second.

Well, lets start with how they turned Alicia into a tsundere for the first three or so episodes, and hated being around Welkin.

Game: "I also want to be his friend"

Hell, she was still being tsundere up to when they took her away to work as a valkyria for the regular army.

My biggest problem with the anime is how they turned Welkin from a slightly odd tactical master to a mouth breathing moron who would barely know human interaction if it hit him in the face.

Yeah, that was very jarring for me as well. With the changes they made in both characters, plus the fact that Alicia had more of a bond with Faldio, it was amazing that the writers didn't go full-retard and end the forced in love triangle, with Faldio and Alicia getting together.

The only reason the didn't was because it would've completely broken canon and it wouldn't have been VC anymore, just a mediocre military anime.


Though I must say I enjoyed the Cordelia kidnapping in the anime even if it was completely retarded.

It seems like every thread about VC has this.
VC probably helped Sony sell plenty of consoles.
I did the same...
>>
>>119753183
The VC3 patch failed for me. I've isolated the issue to being that jpcsp v0.6 (used by the patch) cannot play VC3 on my PC for an unknown reason.

v0.7 plays the ISO fine on my PC but the patch cannot use it, seems like the patch's commands for 0.6 are not compatible.
>>
>>119747680
Yes, they are the "militia", AKA organized citizen army... that apparently gets Swiss-style mandatory training.
>>
>>119753550
I was partial to the way it was shown in the anime. It replaced the friendship between her and Welkin with Alicia. While it worked out better for the anime's story...somewhat...it still didn't feel right for some reason. Though goddamn it, seeing Jaeger and Selvaria crash the party was just great.
>>
>>119753648
Jaeger and Selvaria crashing it without giving a shit was probably the best part yeah, though it's been a very long time since I watched it so I've forgotten the details.

I was slightly amazed at how the anime made Damon even more of a dick than the game.

Jaeger for VC4.
>>
>>119753741
There's just so much I can say about him. He leaves his men to die, and is the only survivor of the Khloden assault, he brings people to his office just to say they won't be needed, he intentionally tried to get a national hero killed to protect his own fame, the bloody list just goes on, and on for me. Unfortunately, the anime made no mention of how he used chemical weapons during the defense of Ghirlandio. Plus his death just wasn't as satisfying as it was in the game.

I'm conflicted. On one hand, it's not canon. On the other hand, it's great.

Damon: Muhaha, I captured Ghirlandio AND the Valkyria, and I did it all by myself with no one's help!
Selvaria: stfu faggot.
Damon: Wait, wha-Boom

Much more satisfying.

It's actually interesting that the show points out that all of high command is the same way.

>>119754023
Yeah, I found that a bit jarring that the non-MC squad members were just copy/pasted bodies with new heads, depending on class.

>>
>>119754057
Yeah, it was very satisfying to see the smirk off of his face even for a little bit.

To bad it took Selvaria dying for it to happen.

I remember the show saying that, but I ignored it because if they were all like Damon nothing would ever get done and Gallia would have completely lost within a week.
>>

It's very surprising that anything did in fact ever get done during the war. The way that the army commanders constantly flaunted their "superiority" was just ridiculous. Which now that I think about it, what is the difference between main army and militia? According to Damon, militia is made up of incompetent farmboys. What makes up the army then?
>>
>>119754247
Incompetent cityboys.
>>
>>119754247
The army is, well the army.
I'm sure there were some competent people among the army.
>>
>>119754247
Graduates of the Andrew Fork academy obviously.
>>
>>119754285
It would be hard to believe there aren't some competent people.
But considering the Militia is by draft or volunteer, how does the army get their numbers?
If you can join up with the army through volunteering, then why bother with the militia?
>>
>>119754311
Perhaps, but isn't that an officer's academy?
>>
>>119754341
It boils down to the universal conscription.

The people in the army are in the army, that's their job.

The militia is every Tom, Dick and Sally from the back country fighting with training they received back in high school along with some refreshers at base.
>>
>>119754341

I think the militia is only around during active wartime, and the regular army is the career soldiers.
>>
>>119754416
I don't think so, only because Captain Varrot and Largo remained in the militia after the first Europan War, which hints at that you can be a career soldier for the militia as well.
>>
>>119745181
Only if you are an extreme fan of the game is recommended, That is, if you like landmines.

They commit several offenses to the original game and story for "MUH ACTION scenes"

Go under your own risk, if and only if you have strong blood vessels so you cant burst one while watching Vyse dead like a fucking dog, for example.

the anime is meh. mostly just for fans of the game.

Every time I see the box art for VC, I can't stop thinking about how Alicia's head looks hunchbacked and pasted on unnaturally.

The game's soundtrack was just fantastic.

I find it interesting that in the soundtrack, Squad 7 is listed as "7th Platoon".

This would make more sense, given the size of Squad 7, since platoons are usually 15-30 soldiers.

Apparently the whole English translation has things like that.

I recall some other anon pointing these out. In the original Japanese, Selvaria is referred to as "Taisa", which means "Colonel", but her English profile states that she's a "Brigadier General".

And then you have the imp engie Johann from the DLC clearly being called Karl when you use the Japanese voiceovers.
>>
>>119754810
Yep. It's fucking pure retarded. You can't even justify these changes with MUH LOCALIZATION. It's just pure faggotry.

And yet, there are people who will defend the shit translation.

>>119754810
Well, I think Johann's original name in the Japanese version was Karl. Not too sure though. His character was completely changed, nearly beyond recognition though with the anime.
>>
>>119754863
That said, 'Karl' is still not as cool as 'Johann'. Plus there's already Squad 7's Karl Landzaat.

As this thread will be buried amongst the many others of this board, and will likley be 404'd within the next day, I will say this:

OP, you have made the right choice by playing the game first. Valkyria Chronicles is an excellent game, with a not so great adaptation. The original story was beautiful, though having some minor flaws in my opinion, far surpasses its' anime adaptation.

After seeing all of what we have to say about the anime, and you still wish to see it, I can only suggest that you watch with extreme caution, due to its' many flaws and changes, and anger-educing moments.

Good luck to you. Tell us what you think when you are finished.

What was even the point of doing that? The stateside demographic has been familiar with the S rank convention since at least '97.

Well, I hope it ruins your day to know that once you get her last potential she gets ultimate accuracy which makes her aim literally the middle dot. You can't possible miss with that.

It's not so much a tussle as it is Alicia completely wrecking Selvaria's shit.

People pirating the PC port of the first game, which was released 6 years after it originally came out, aren't the reason we didn't get VC3. The reason is because the PSP was fucking dead everywhere outside Japan and Sega didn't care about western sales.

Funny because I remember Sega announcing that VC1 on PC sold over their expectations

>>119756331
lala land dreams don't count
>>119756354
SEGA of america seriously expected decent sales for VC2 when the tone shift and the platform change alienated a lot of the original fanbase. For once pirates had fuck all to do with VC3's lack of localization.

Buying VC1PC does nothing other than give SEGA free money, so pirating it doesn't hurt anything other than delusional dreams of fans still in denial.

I am stuck on episode 7 with the huge fucking tank. I can't kill the big tank fast enough, their reinforcements also come and sweep me as soon as I destroy first two radiators
>>
>>119756487
Use the Edelweiss to stuck the Batomys, Engineers behind to fix the tank, Lancers to destroy the radiators and the others take care of the mooks.
When Selvaria appears, quickly hide the Lancers behind the tank and shoot the debris.

>>119756487
Something along the lines of
>>119749680
Or just put your tank up there and mortar the shit out of the reinforcements.
Also make sure you save your points.

>>119756269
I suppose that would also explain the inclusion of Alice Murgatroyd in the game as well.
>>
>>119756452
Keyword there is "didn't," now they do apparently, as evidenced by the PC port. I know some people bought it in the hope that it would convince Sega to make a PC port of some of their other games, like Vanquish.

>>119756560
Oh shit I never thought of mortaring the reinforcements! That's a good idea!
>>119756546
But if I stuck the batomys then radiator protectors won't open and if I destroy one when other two are opened then they close up and batomys needs to shoot again
>>
>>119756608
That's strange, when i stuck the Batomys with the Edelweiss, it's main gun always shoot the Edelweiss and the radiators is still open.

Really? It uses the small canons to shoot my Edelweiss on the front. I'll try it again and maybe stand differently
>>
>>119756646
>it's main gun always shoot the Edelweiss
What, the main gun one shots your tank
>>
>>119756663
Don't stick your tank in front of the Batomys, get it past the debris, then have the debris fall down blocking the Batomys.
>>
>>119756670
I think that's because i upgrade my tank's defense and let it face front to front with the Batomys.
>>
>>119756700
That's what I did first time. Batomys one shots the debris. Will the radiators stay open if I leave Edelweiss in front of Batomys?
>>
>>119756487
Not sure if this will help you but when the radiators open I found it easier to climb up and throw a grenade into the radiators.

If I tried to position my lancers to fire at a radiator Silvertits would blast them down. I had more luck suicide running then climbing up the tank.
>>
>>119756733
I'm not too sure what you're on about.
When you destroy one radiator the rest close, meaning you need the Batomys to fire 3 times.
Literally just park your tank in front of the reinforcements and the rest is sinch.
